What Personal Information Is Collected Through Agrisuretraits.com?
Agrisure collects the personal information you supply when you use this Site, for example, the information you provide when you register to use this Site, when you download software, or when you personalize this Site to meet your specific needs. This information includes, for example, your name, the name of your company, your or your company's mailing address, your e-mail address, and information about your interests.
Agrisure uses technology to track your use of this Site, for example, which pages you view and which links you use. If you use a link on this Site to access information provided to us by third parties, this technology tells us how you use these resources. This information about your use of this Site and the resources available through this Site is called "click-stream data." Click-stream data helps us determine what is important to you, and what is not. It helps us decide what content and features to add and what to discard. It also helps us determine whether our Site is easy to use or whether we need to redesign certain pages and links. Click-stream data does not identify you personally, but it can be linked to your user name and password. If Agrisure links any click-stream data to your personal name we will treat it as personal information.

Disclosure of Personal Information
Agrisure shares personal information collected through this Site with its affiliates, who may use the information in the same ways as Agrisure may use the information. For example, although Agrisuretraits.com is owned by a United States subsidiary of Syngenta Corporation, many of our users live in Canada. We, therefore, share personal information about our Canadian users with Syngenta's Canadian subsidiaries, who use the information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. If you do not want Syngenta to share your personal information with its affiliates, please notify us.
Both Agrisure and its affiliates share personal information collected through this Site with third-party vendors who act for or on behalf of Agrisure and/or its affiliates, for example, companies that provide support services to us or that help us market our products and services. These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose.
In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which Agrisure or its affiliates may share or transfer the information in their databases to an unrelated third party, for example, to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect your or your company's vital interests, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event.
Where appropriate, before disclosing personal information to a third party, Agrisure will contractually require the third party to take adequate precautions to protect that data against unauthorized use or disclosure.
Data Integrity and Security
Agrisuretraits.com strives to maintain the reliability, accuracy, completeness and currency of personal information in our databases and to protect the security of our databases. We keep your personal information only for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or to comply with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements. Our servers and our databases are protected by industry standard security technology, such as industry standard firewalls and password protection. The employees who have access to personal information have been trained to handle such data properly and in accordance with our security protocols. Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration or destruction of data, we try to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.

Requests to correct or delete personal data are subject to any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document retention obligations imposed on Agrisure.
