Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders Privacy Policy

Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders (“SAFSF,” “we,” or “us” respects your privacy. This privacy policy (“Policy”) describes how we collect, use, and disclose information about visitors (collectively, “Users”) to our website (the “Website”) and the online services we provide (collectively, the “Services”).

Information We Collect About You

While Users, including minors, may use many features on our Site without providing any Personal Information, we sometimes collect Personal Information as part of an activity and/or in connection with the Services. For the purposes of this Policy, “Personal Information” is information that we can directly associate with a specific person without additional information, such as a name, email address, birthday, age, and telephone number. You may submit Personal Information to us, such as when subscribing to receive our updates. We may also collect Personal Information from the messages you send to us through our messaging features on the Website.

We may combine Personal Information with Other Information, in which case we will treat the combined information as Personal Information. We also may combine information that we have about you with additional information that we or third parties collect in other contexts—such as our communications with you via email or other inquiries you direct to us. In those circumstances, we will treat the combined information in accordance with this Policy.

“Other Information” is any information we collect that is not Personal Information. We may collect Other Information about Users automatically through the Website. This may include information such as your IP address or domain name, your Internet service provider, the date and time of your visit, your use of the Website or Services during your current session or over time (including the pages you view and the files you download), the URLs from the websites you visit before or after navigating to the Website, your computer’s operating system and browser type, your software or hardware attributes (such as device IDs, device OS or device type), search keyword or search engine, your general geographic location (e.g., your city, state or metropolitan region), or precise, real-time location data pertaining to your mobile device.

We collect such Other Information using the following technologies:

Server Logs. When you use the Website or Services, we automatically receive and record certain information from your computer (or other device) and your browser. To obtain such information, we may use server logs or applications that recognize your computer and gather information about its online activity.

Cookies. We also use cookies. Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer (or other device) by your web browser. A cookie allows the Website to recognize whether you have visited the Website before and may store user preferences and information. If you are concerned about having cookies on your computer, you can set your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being set, allowing you to decide whether to accept it. You can also delete cookies from your computer. However, if you choose to block or delete cookies, certain features of the Website may not operate correctly.

Pixel Tags. The Services or the emails that you receive from us may use an application known as a “pixel tag” (also known as a “clear gif” or “web beacon”). A pixel tag is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include Personal Information. For example, it allows an email sender to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.

Collaboration with Third–Party Data Collectors. We may partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, or use some of the information described above. For example, we may allow third parties to set cookies or use pixel tags or other tracking mechanisms (such as tags or scripts) on the Services or in email communications from us, or we may allow third parties to use an application software development kit or a server-to-server connection to collect information, including device identifiers. The information collected by third parties using these technologies may be used for a variety of purposes, including analytics, as described in the “Third Party Analytics” section below.

How We Use Your Information

We use your Personal Information and Other Information to provide the Services to you, including video meetings using Zoom video conferencing; respond to your requests; send you administrative and marketing communications; analyze how Users use the Website or Services; understand our Users’ demographics and other information; improve our Website and Services or create new programs and services; engage in analytics; and comply with legal or regulatory requirements or protect our rights and interests or the rights and interests of others. Note that the interactions that occur through the Zoom platform may be recorded and retained for our internal business purposes, including without limitation for training, dispute resolution, improving our Services, and legal purposes, as necessary.

The Website uses Google Analytics to help collect and analyze certain information for the purposes discussed above.

How We Share Your Information

We may share your information with the following third parties:

Third–Party Service Providers, Plugins, and Integrations. We use third–party service providers to help us provide, manage, and improve the Services. These service providers may collect or use your information to assist us in achieving the purposes discussed in this Policy, including for analytics. The Services may integrate certain third-party plugins, widgets, or integrations (such as social media plugins). Even if you do not click on these plugins, widgets, or integrations, they may collect information about you, such as your IP address and the pages that you view. They also may set or access a cookie or other tracking mechanism. Each plugin, widget, and integration is governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it and not this Policy. Our service providers are permitted only to use your Personal Information and Other Information to perform services for us.

Legal Purposes. We may disclose your information 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 such as a judicial or governmental subpoena or warrant; (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of any person or entity; (iii) act in urgent circumstances to investigate or protect the personal safety of users of the Website, the Services, or the public; or (iv) protect against legal liability, prevent suspected fraud or establish, protect or exercise our legal rights.

Organizational transfers. We may share your information with third parties to facilitate the financing, securitization, insuring, merger, acquisition, sale, assignment, bankruptcy, or other disposal of all or part of our organization or assets.

Third Party Links, Websites, Apps, and Communication Technologies

Note that we may occasionally direct you to a third-party website, such as RegFox, to register or partake in events.

This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected in connection with our Website and Services.


We use reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your information against loss or unauthorized access, use, modification, or deletion.
