When you interact with us through your use of the Bushel app or the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information and data from you, as further described below:
Non-Identifiable Data. When you utilize the Services, or if you deposit grain with participating grain elevators, we may receive certain personally non-identifiable information about your business and use of the Services. Such information, which may be collected passively using various technologies, or via your use of the Services, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. We may store such information ourselves or it may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents or service providers. We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Services, the number of visitors to each page of the Services, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
Aggregated and De-Identified Data.In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, we may review, analyze and conduct research on our end users’ demographics, business operations, performance, and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information and data provided to us. This research may be compiled, analyzed, reported or published on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregated data with our affiliates, agents, business partners, or other third parties in a variety of ways. This aggregate information does not identify you personally, it is de-identified. De-identified data means data that is not associated with or linked to any personally identifiable data and would not, by itself or in combination with other data, permit the identification of individual persons. When we provide this information, we perform appropriate procedures so that the data does not identify you and we contractually prohibit recipients of the data from re-identifying it back to you. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
You acknowledge and agree that the non-identifiable data, aggregated data, and de-identified data created and/or collected by Myriad, its affiliates, contractors or agents, and any resulting reports or publications is not your confidential information and is owned by Myriad.
Third-Party Information. Our Services may rely on third-party platforms, including without limitation, and by way of example only, Facebook or Twitter, in order to provide both authentication and social networking features. When you initially login to the Services using a third-party platform, you are asked to grant us permission to access certain data from such service (“Third-Party Information”). We use Third-Party Information in order to provide the Services both to you and other Users. We may share Third-Party Information with Users of the Services in order to provide certain features or functionality. The Third-Party Information we collect and use is limited to that information you have explicitly authorized us to access.
We may aggregate data and remove information that identifies you from any or all of the information that we collect from you, and we may use such aggregated and/or de-identified data for our business purposes as we determine, including without limitation, research and development, product improvements, business operations and process improvements, and our own marketing purposes. We may also provide de-identified data to third parties for their uses, as we determine.
We will communicate with you through email and notices posted via the Bushel app. These communications may include a series of welcome emails which help inform you about various features of the Services. Please be aware that you will always receive certain emails from us related to the proper functioning of your account. We may send you promotional information unless you have opted out of receiving such information.
In addition to the foregoing, there are certain other circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, including as set forth below:
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event relating to all or a portion of our business, assets or the Services, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Service Providers, Agents and Related Third Parties: We sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we may need to provide them with access to certain Personal Data. However, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
Legal Requirements: We may also disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend our rights or property, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety, rights, and property of Users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
You can use the Services without providing any Personal Data, however, you may not be able to use certain features or aspects of the Services.
When you sign up for our Services that require registration, we ask you to provide Personal Data. If we want to use this Personal Data in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, we will ask for your consent prior to doing so. If we propose to use Personal Data for any purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific notice of Services, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of our use of your Personal Data for those other purposes.
We take reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Bushel app or Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. These steps include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store Personal Data. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from the Bushel app or Services may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data to us via the Internet.
