What Does This Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy applies to the ARP website and information collected by this web site. It does not apply to any other Dow AgroSciences or Monsanto websites, services or dealings with users or customers and does not apply to third-party web sites which may be linked to this site.

The ARP website automatically logs information about a visitor from the browser used to access the site (e.g., Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc.). This includes information about the I.P. address of the visitor, the pages in the site which are visited from that address and the web site which the user visited just prior to the ARP site. (In this Policy, the foregoing information is referred to as "Visit Information.") None of this Visit Information permits personal identification of the individual user who is accessing the ARP website; thus Visit Information is not considered personal information in this Policy. Visit Information will be used by the ARP to diagnose problems with its web servers, to administer, design and construct its web sites, to track visitor movements on the web sites and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use only.

Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that web sites commonly write to the site visitor's hard drive when a site is visited. A cookie file contains information that can identify a return visitor each time he or she visits our site. The data is encrypted for added security. The ARP website may use cookies as a way to measure activity and traffic patterns on the site in order to continually improve the visitor's experience. A browser can be set to warn the users before accepting cookies. Users can choose to refuse cookies by turning them off in the browser. Users do not need to have cookies turned on to visit our web site, but will need them to use certain customizable features of our web site such as automatically displaying local weather and crop forecasts, accessing certain areas of our web site, and transacting business on our web site.

Visit Information collected at the ARP site, may be used by the site manager if deemed necessary to protect ARP from a threat or other perceived security risk and such information may be shared with law enforcement authorities if appropriate.

Children and Privacy

ARP does not knowingly collect information from or about children age 13 and under.

Security

Although this site does not collect personal data from the users, ARP generally takes precautions to protect users' information. Our safeguards include technical means and policies and procedures that the site manager is trained to follow. In any event in which the ARP web site is hosted by a third party, these safeguards shall also apply. We try to reduce the likelihood of accidental disclosures and unintended access, but it is impossible to eliminate this possibility completely. If users were to submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both on-line and off-line.

Protecting Your Own Privacy

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information.

Changes to Policy

If ARP decides to change its privacy policies and practices, we will post those changes to our Privacy Policy on our web site in advance of the changes taking effect, so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will continue to be able to use information in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which the information was collected.
