Privacy Policy

The Alberta Rhodiola Rosea Growers Organization (ARRGO) provides the following privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to protecting the privacy of site visitors.

ARRGO asks for personal information about our users at the point of membership registration application as well as its new member questionnaire. Such information may include name, address, phone number, postal code, e-mail address, occupation and financial information of a general nature (e.g. Have you filed for bankruptcy in the last five years?).

Use of Personally Identifiable Information

ARRGO will not sell or otherwise transfer or disclose personally identifiable information to third parties without the user's prior consent except as may be required by federal, provincial or local law, or by exigent circumstances. That means that ARRGO will not disclose your personal information without your prior consent. We may use your personally identifiable information to compile and display content and information that we think you might be interested in.

Cookie Technology

Cookies are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat users and facilitate the user's ongoing access to and use of the site. Non-personal identification information might include the browser used by the user, the type of computer, the operating systems, the Internet service providers and other similar information.

The ARRGO Privacy Policy does not apply to such other sites. ARRGO has no control over and is not responsible for the content displayed on such sites, nor over the measures, if any, that are taken by such sites to protect the privacy of user information.
