Privacy & Terms
Effective September 1, 2013
Restrictions on Use of Materials
On our Web site, we may collect certain personally-identifiable information provided by our online visitors. Personally-identifiable information relates to an individual consumer – for example, name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. You may provide personally-identifiable information, for example, by signing up for the eNewsletter, submitting a photo, or entering a promotion. We do not require you to register or provide personally-identifiable information to view our site or access much of its content. Here are the ways we collect personally-identifiable information.
Aggregate and Non-Personal Information
We collect certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit our Web site. Aggregate and non-personal information does not relate to a single, identifiable visitor. It tells us how many users visited our site or the pages accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how best to tailor our Web site to our visitors. We collect this information through “cookie” technology, as explained below.
Like many companies, we use “cookies” on our Web site. Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain Web sites. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site, and to tell us, for example, whether you’ve visited us before or if you’re a new visitor. When you visit our Web site, cookies are placed on your computer.
How We Use Personally-Identifiable Information
If you ask to be contacted by us, we may use the information you provide to contact you from time to time. For example, we may (i) send you promotional materials and other communications you request, (ii) respond to your comments or questions, or (iii) contact you if needed while processing service you requested through our Web site.
We also use personally-identifiable information about you to improve our Web site features and content and to analyze Web site usage. In addition, we use personally-identifiable information for market research purposes. We also may use personally-identifiable information about you to deliver content that is customized to your interests as we understand from the information you have provided to us and your activities on the site.
How We Share Personally-Identifiable Information
Except as described below, we do not sell, transfer or otherwise disclose to third parties the personally-identifiable information you provide and we collect on this Web site without your prior consent. We disclose information where we think it is necessary to investigate or prevent an actual or suspected crime or injury to ourselves or others or where disclosure is required by law. We also may disclose information in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials.
On our Web site, we may conduct joint promotions with other companies. We may share with our promotional partners (and their service providers) certain personally-identifiable information as necessary to conduct the promotion. We will not share this information with our promotional partners for any other purpose unless you tell us it’s ok to do so.
How We Protect Personally-Identifiable Information
The security of personally-identifiable information is important to us. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the personally-identifiable information we collect on this Web site.
We provide users with an opportunity to submit their ideas, photos and other artwork for display on the Website. In order to submit anything, users must be registered with califiafarms.com. Califia Farms always welcomes suggestions and comments regarding our online activities from the users of our Web site. Any comments or suggestions submitted to Califia Farms, either online or offline, will become the property of Califia upon its submission. This policy is intended to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by Califia’s professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. If at our request you send certain specific submissions (e.g., postings to chat rooms, bulletin or message boards, story lines for interactive stories, postings to our Gallery or games/drawings/contests) or, if you send us any unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions, photographs, notes, drawings, concepts or any other information or materials (collectively, the “Submissions”), the Submissions shall be deemed, and shall remain, the property of Califia. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Califia, and Califia shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Without limitation of the foregoing, Califia shall exclusively own all now known or hereafter existing rights in and to the Submissions of every kind and nature throughout the universe and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions.

Contests, Sweepstakes and Games
Our site may from time to time contain notices of contests, sweepstakes and games we are conducting, which you may enter electronically in some cases. We use the information you provide to conduct the promotion (for example, to contact you if you’re a winner). We will not use the information you for any other purpose unless you’ve agreed otherwise.
Other Site Features
We offer visitors to our Web site various features for their enjoyment, which may change from time to time. We may ask you to submit certain personally-identifiable information so we can provide you with these features.
This Agreement is effective until terminated by either party. You may terminate this Agreement at any time by destroying all materials obtained from any and all Califia Farms Web site(s) and all related documentation and all copies and installations thereof, whether made under the terms of this Agreement or otherwise.
