American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture (“AFBFA”) values individual privacy and we want to give visitors to our AgFoundation.org website (the “Site”) the opportunity to know what information we collect about them and how they can limit the use of personally-identifiable information beyond the purposes for which they first provided it.
At all times, AFBFA reserves the right to disclose information where required by law or to comply with valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order), to protect AFBF’s rights or property, including without limitation in the event of a transfer of control of AFBF or substantially all of its assets, or during emergencies when safety is at risk.
AFBFA does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If AFBFA obtains knowledge that it has personally identifiable information about a child under 13 in retrievable form, AFBFA will immediately destroy that information, and delete that information from its files.
