Effective Date: November 1, 2023
Regardless of where our servers are located, your personal data may be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. BY VISITING THE SITE AND USING THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY US THROUGH VOLUNTARY SUBMISSIONS, AND, TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, THAT U.S. LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.
Protection Regulation ("EU GDPR"), the UK General Data Protection
Regulation (“UK-GDPR”, and together with the EU GDPR, the “GDPR”), and other
applicable privacy laws. Under the GDPR, Agrichat is a data “Controller” and a
We do. Under the GDPR, Agrichat is what is known as a “Controller” and a “Processor” of the Personal Data that you provide us with. We collect information from you on the Service, and we are responsible for protection of your information.
2. What Information Does Agrichat Collect?
A. Personal Information. We collect certain PII from you when you sign-up for the Service, when you complete a survey, when you create or update an account, when you use the Service, when you request services, when you link your account on the Service to your social media account(s) via our optional integration, from third parties, or otherwise when you submit such information. The types of PII we collect and save include:
· Name, street address, email address; phone number; username; gps/location information; and other information collected through the optional social media integration.
· Technical information collected in our logs. Such information may include standard web log entries that contain your IP address; cookies (first-party, third-party, session, and persistent); web beacons; page URL and timestamp.
You may provide us with information when you interact with us through email, read an email from us, online chat, messaging functions within the Service, or otherwise. We may retain such information in order to provide you with services, and you agree that we may share this information as needed with other users in order to resolve any issues that may arise between you and another user of the Service.
The Service may also request permission and access to your contacts, call history, photo gallery, camera roll or other device storage area holding your images, audio and/or videos, in order for you to upload and transmit them through the Service, or to interact with your phone contacts through the Service.
The Service may place phone calls, send text messages, send push notifications, access the internet, record pictures, audio, or video, or use your mobile data plan in order to use certain features of the Service, such as communication with other users through the Service.
The Service may be integrated with third party social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram (“Platforms”). If you choose to interact with the Platforms through the Service, the Platforms may make additional PII about you available to us.
B. Non-Personal Information. “Non-Personal Information” is information which doesn’t identify you and/or anonymous information about you, including but not limited to links and materials posted, purchase history, the type of device you used and its operating system, browser information, the pages accessed most frequently, how pages are used, when and how you use the App, applications downloaded, search terms entered, and similar Non-Personal Information.
Automatically tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of automatically collecting information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your device whenever you surf the internet. Further, the Service may utilize web beacons, pixel tags, cookies, embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools. Through collecting your IP address, we may be able to approximate your geographic location, however, unless and until this is information is paired with your PII, it cannot be used to identify you. If Non-Personal Information is paired to any of your PII, we will treat the Non-Personal Information as if it was PII too.
Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device, that may interfere with your use of the Service.
Part of the purpose of the Service is to share materials you make available. Anything you publicly post will not be considered PII.
C. Aggregate Information. We may also collect anonymous, non-identifying and aggregate information, the date and time of any request, language preference, referring website, the pages you visit within our Site, the website you go to after visiting our Site, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.
D. Financial Information. Although it may appear that we collect financial information from you on the Service, it is actually collected and processed through a third-party service provider (“Payment Processor”) to process payments for the Service. The Payment Processor may collect financial information such as banking information or credit card number, name, CVV code or date of expiration, from you on the Service. We do not hold your financial information.
We accept and gather information in an effort to provide the Service to you. We need to collect your PII so that we can respond to your requests for information or to be added to our email lists, to integrate with the Platforms, train and develop our Model(s), and to process your payment for the Service. We also collect aggregate information to help us better design the Service. We collect log information for monitoring purposes to help us to diagnose problems with our servers, administer the Service, calculate usage levels, and otherwise provide services to you.
· Internal Uses. We may use your PII to respond to your inquiries, to fulfill your requests for information, track usage trends, conduct experiments, send you push notifications, develop and improve the Service and other offerings, and perform research and analytics.
· Creating and Maintaining Your Account. We use your PII to create and maintain an account for you to allow you to purchase and use the Service.

We may use any anonymous, aggregate information, of which your information may be a part of or the basis of, without restriction.
5. Do We Share Your PII?
We will not share your PII except: (a) for the purposes for which you provided it; (b) with your consent, such as other users of the Service, Universities, Farm Advisory System, Government agencies, agrochemical companies, agro-mechanical companies, credit providers, insurance providers, traders, food and ingredient manufacturers, investors in agtech, and consultants; (c) as may be required by law or as we think necessary to protect our organization or others from injury (e.g., in response to a court order or subpoena, in response to a law enforcement agency request, or when we believe that someone is causing, or is about to cause, injury to or interference with the rights or property of another); or (d) with persons or organizations with whom we contract to carry out internal operations or business activities.
We may also share aggregate information with others, including affiliated and non-affiliated organizations.
Finally, we may transfer your PII to a third party, or an actual or potential successor-in-interest, in relation to, or in the event of, an actual or potential merger, acquisition, sale of all or substantially all of our assets, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other change of control. After such disclosure or transfer, the third party or successor in interest may use the information in accordance with applicable law.
6. Are There Other Ways My Personal Data Could Be Shared?
You may elect to share certain personal information with individuals or with the public via your use of the Service. In this case, you will control such sharing via settings that we provide. For example, the Service may make it possible for you to publicly share information via Platforms such as Facebook, or Instagram. Be aware that when you choose to share information with friends, or with the public at large, you may be disclosing sensitive information, or information from which sensitive information can be inferred. Always use caution when sharing information through the Service. You understand and agree that we are not responsible for any consequences of your sharing of information through and beyond the Service.
7. How Can You Access And Control Your Information?
After becoming a user of the Service, you may revise or edit your information by sending an email to email@example.com. For instructions on how you can further access your PII that we have collected, or how to correct errors in such information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also promptly stop using your information and remove it from our servers and database at any time upon your e-mail request. Furthermore, you may opt out of the use of information by the Service to send you promotional emails by sending an email to email@example.com with “Opt-Out” in the subject line. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting access, making corrections or removing your information.
8. How Do We Store and Protect Your Information?
A. After receiving your PII, we will store it on our servers for future use. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or data storage solution can ever be completely secure. As a result, although we take industry-standard steps to protect your information (e.g., strong encryption), we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or receive from us or that we store on our or our service providers' systems.
B. If you are visiting the Site from outside of the USA, you understand that your connection will be through and to servers located in the USA, and the information you provide will be securely stored in our servers and internal systems located within the USA.
C. Retention. We store your PII until you request us to remove it from our servers. We store our logs and other technical records, and any information entered into our Model(s), indefinitely. The information entered into our Model(s) will not be used for any other purpose, and we will employ the methods described above to minimize the risk of such information becoming the subject of unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
A. To enhance your online experience with us, our web pages may presently or in the future use "cookies." Cookies are text files that our web server may place on your hard disk to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other PII unless you choose to provide this information to us. Once you choose to provide PII, however, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device or browser, certain features of the Services may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
C. Agrichat or its service providers may also use "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" or similar means (collectively, "Pixel Tags") in connection with some of our Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages for purposes of, among other things, compiling aggregate statistics about website usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1x1), that is ordinarily not visible to website visitors and may be associated with cookies on visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have visited certain pages of our Site, to deliver customized services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can inform the sender of the email whether and when the email has been opened.
D. As you use the internet, you leave a trail of electronic information at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as "clickstream data”, can be collected and stored by a website's server. Clickstream data can reveal the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to our Site. We may use clickstream data as a form of non-personally identifiable information to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Site, how visitors navigate through the Site, and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. We will only use this information to improve our site.
E. Do Not Track. At present, the Site does not specifically respond to browser do-not-track signals.
10. Collection of Information by Others.
Our Terms of Service document identifies certain third-party websites to which we may provide links, and that you may click on our Site or in our Service.
