Farmnivorous collects certain personal information as part of the process for creating an account, including your name, email address, and phone number. Your name and email address are shared with vendors when you purchase an item from them in case they need to contact you due and because part of our purpose at Farmnivorous is to help foster relationships between growers and consumers. Order data including customer names and email addresses is shared with the managers of the market for which your order was placed, for the same reasons, as well as to facilitate the aggregation of orders to facilitate curbside or delivery services. Your phone number is not shared with vendors or market managers. Farmnivorous does not and has no intention of selling your personal information to 3rd-party collectors. Although access to data collected by Farmnivorous is protected by reasonable security measures, Farmnivorous cannot assume any liability for personal data obtained by outside parties who may obtain such data without our approval.
Farmnivorous uses Stripe to process credit cards as part of the process for placing an order. More specifically, vendors are required to have a Stripe account which they "connect" to the Farmnivorous platform within Stripe's framework. Stripe is the industry leader for processing credit card transactions online and employs encryption and fraud-prevention protocols that are industry-leading. Farmnivorous does not store your credit card information locally. When you make a purchase, your IP address, zip code, and other basic information about the computer hardware used to make the purchase are available to the Farmnivorous team and the vendor(s) from whom you purchased the item(s) within Stripe's dashboard. This is to facilitate fraud-prevention.
