Visiting Our Website
For each visitor to our website, our web server automatically recognizes only the IP address of your computer. When you make a purchase in the ARBICO Store, request a catalog, ask Dr. Buglady a question, sign up for the Go Organic! Newsletter, or answer one of our surveys, you may choose to give us basic information: name, email address, mailing address, ZIP code, phone, and credit card numbers(for purchases & samples only). This allows us to process your transactions more efficiently, and ultimately, to give you a higher caliber of customer service. When you visit our website, we may collect the following information: your Internet service provider's address, the name of the Web page directing you, as well as your clicks and activity on our site. This tracking data helps us understand how to make our site more responsive to our customers needs.
Learning About What You Like
We also gather customer information by observing the purchases you make. Think of it as a concierge service where your customer preferences are remembered for future consideration. By looking at your purchases in context with marketing demographics or with information from companies whose products and services you may be interested in, it helps us seek out products and services you may find relevant and unique. Similarly, other companies may also forward to us additional names, mailing addresses, and email addresses when we have news or product offerings that may be of special interest to their customers. In order to serve you better, we may at times contract with other companies to help us process information. For instance, their assistance can help us better fulfill customer orders, manage and enhance customer data, and comply with postal regulations.
At Your Service Information
The information we collect is intended to help us provide better customer service and to improve communications. The customer information you provide can help ARBICO provide greater security and inform you of products and services that may be of interest. When a purchased item is not immediately available, many of our customers appreciate receiving an email to update the status of their order. We may also need to contact customers by phone, postal mail, or email if questions occur regarding their orders.
When you shop at the ARBICO store, order from our catalogs, or visit us online, it is also an opportunity for you to provide us with information and feedback that helps us continue to expand our understanding of your needs and wants.
Secure Information Under Lock And Key
We take the following steps to protect our customers' personal information against loss, misuse, and alteration. We use encryption technology whenever receiving and transferring your personal information on our site.
When you make a purchase online, either a solid key or a locked padlock icon will appear in the lower right of your browser window. This icon indicates that your transaction session is secured through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). If one of these icons does not appear, please contact ARBICO at 800-827-2847 to complete your order. The ARBICO website uses SSL to communicate with secure browsers like Netscape, Firefox and Internet Explorer. These browsers encrypt your credit card and personal information in a way that makes it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept and misuse them while they are being transmitted between your computer and our server. Once you have completed your order online, our security procedures do not end. We take further precautions to protect the security and privacy of the information stored on our computer networks. Many of the systems which store your personal information are not connected to the Internet, reducing the likelihood of security breaches. Our systems are also housed in secure facilities, and access to your data by our employees is limited to a "need to know" basis, controlled by password protected systems, and monitored for abuse. If you are still unsure of giving your credit card over the Internet, please feel free to phone, fax, or mail your order to us. For telephone ordering or assistance, please call 800-827-2847. Our fax number for orders is 520-825-2038. Or, send your order to: ARBICO Organics, 10831 N Mavinee Dr. Suite 185., Oro Valley, AZ 85737.
In addition, ARBICO uses ScanAlert to check our website daily to ensure maximum security of our site.
Bringing Your Information Up To Date
Updating your contact information is quick and easy. Simply contact us. Include your previous and current full name, mailing address, email address and phone number. Updates can take from six to eight weeks to process from the date we receive your request.
Information sharing can provide an important variety of consumer networking. By providing new connections and introduction of new resources to our customers, you may discover new opportunities and products well suited to your interests and needs. With that end in mind, when you make a purchase, your customer information is shared with other select companies whose products and services you may find beneficial.
Information Sharing Is Up To You
We respect and appreciate that not all customers may wish to benefit from the opportunity to share information with other select companies. If you do not want ARBICO to share your customer information, please immediately contact us and we will remove your name from lists we share with other companies. After the six to eight week time period it takes to process your request, your information will no longer be shared. When contacting us, it is important to clearly state your request, including your name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.
It is important to understand that your information must be shared with some companies or online partners in order to receive their services. By agreeing to share information, our customers may have the opportunity to participate in a broader array of services and offerings.
You May Remove Your Name From Our Lists At Any Time
To delete your name from the ARBICO email mailing list, or to have your name removed from the catalog mailing list, simply contact us. Be sure to provide your full name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. We appreciate your patience as it may take up to six to eight weeks to process your request from the date of receipt. When you make subsequent purchases at ARBICO, you may provide contact information for customer service only and request that your name not be forwarded to either mailing list.
Children's Privacy Statement
ARBICO adheres to a strict privacy code regarding children and does not knowingly accept personal information from any child. If it is brought to our attention that a subscriber is under age, we will immediately remove all personal and identifiable information from our records in compliance with the Online Children's Privacy Protection Act of 1998. In addition, we will not disclose this information to any other companies.
This children's privacy statement explains our practices with respect to the online collection and use of personal information from children under the age of thirteen, and provides important information regarding their rights under federal law with respect to such information.
- ARBICO's website is not directed to children under the age of thirteen and we do NOT knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen as part of our website. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personally identifiable information from a user under the age of thirteen as part of our site, we will delete such information from our records. If we change our practices in the future, we will obtain prior, verifiable parental consent before collecting any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen.
- Because we do not collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen as part of our business, we also do NOT knowingly distribute such information to third parties.
- We do NOT knowingly allow children under the age of thirteen to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information through our website.
- Because we do not collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen as part of our website, we do NOT condition the participation of a child under thirteen in the website's online activities on providing personally identifiable information.
For each visitor to an ARBICO website, ARBICO's Web server automatically recognizes, collects and/or stores information such as the visitor's IP address/Domain name combination and any referring sites. ARBICO may use several technologies to accomplish this. Examples of such technologies are cookies and Web beacons.
Most browsers will allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. However, if you block or erase cookies, we may not be able to restore any preferences or customization settings you previously specified, and our ability to personalize your online experience would be limited. Please refer to your browser instructions or "help" screen to learn more about these functions.
ARBICO may also itself use, or engage third parties to use, Web beacons for researching certain usage and activities on our website. The information collected by ARBICO or requested from third parties through these Web beacons is in an aggregate, non-individually identifiable form and is used to find out more about users including demographic information and usage patterns for more accurate reporting and to improve the effectiveness of our marketing. ARBICO may also itself use, or engage third parties to use, pixel tags or other technology to research or track your usage activities with respect to emails from us.
ARBICO may ask you to provide "personal information", meaning individually identifiable information such as your email address, name, mailing address, telephone number, credit card number, or persistent identifier (such as a customer number held in a cookie) which is associated with individually identifiable information, to enable you to participate in contests, chat rooms, on bulletin boards, to fill out a registration, or to order products and services using this site. ARBICO may combine the information you provide on our website with information we may collect offline from you or from third parties so that we can more effectively tailor our site, services and offerings to you.
Use And Disclosure Of Anonymous Aggregated Information
ARBICO may also collect, aggregate and maintain anonymous information about you, such as your hobbies, interests, purchasing habits, music preferences, and the like. This data can then be used to tailor ARBICO's promotions, advertising, and communications to deliver a better experience for you. ARBICO may also share such aggregate information with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties; for example, to inform them about the percentage of male/female visitors to our site or the percentage of home gardeners vs farm owners, etc.
ARBICO makes reasonable efforts to maintain the security of your personal information in order to prevent unauthorized access to it through the use of technology and internal procedures. However, ARBICO does not guarantee that unauthorized access will never occur.
We currently contract with online partners to help manage and optimize our Internet business and communications. We use them to send emails that you have agreed to receive. Web cookies are used in those email messages and at our website to help us measure the effectiveness of those emails. You can "opt out" of this email cookie at any time by deleting your name from the ARBICO email mailing list. We reserve the right to change email providers at any time.
We may also contract with other partners to help us assess visitation to the ARBICO site. To do this, we place small pixel tags and cookies on our site. While these do allow for tracking of your visits, the data retrieved cannot be used for any reason without our authorization. We control how that data may and may not be used.
Information Disclosed If Required By Law
If required by law, ARBICO may provide any and all information we have about you to law enforcement or other government agencies, pursuant to a subpoena, warrant, or other order by a court of competent jurisdiction. In all cases, we will require written documentation of the request, proof of the identity of the law enforcement official making the request, and we will take reasonable steps to authenticate the validity of the request. Any law enforcement or government agency request submitted with less than a court-issued order will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis according to the need and urgency, as well as the particular law enforcement agency making the request.
A Privacy Promise
We support and adhere to the guidelines and practices adopted by the Direct Marketing Association's "Privacy Promise." In so doing, we agree to comply with a customer's request to not share their information with other companies or to contact them for marketing purposes by postal mail, telephone or email.

Your Rights Under the California Consumer Privacy Act
This "Your Rights Under the California Consumer Privacy Act" section is referred to as the "CCPA Notice", and this CCPA Notice is effective on January 1, 2020. The California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") provides certain new rights to "consumers" who are residents of California, and this CCPA Notice explains how Arbico Organics enables those rights for California residents who are customers or prospective customers using our services, and explains our California personal information practices as required by CCPA.
Please note that CCPA will be supplemented by regulations to be adopted under California law, and this CCPA Notice may be updated to reflect the adoption of such regulations. CCPA requires a summary of personal information practices for the prior twelve months, updated annually, and that summary is reflected in this CCPA Notice. We may update this CCPA Notice more frequently than annually to reflect changes in how.
This CCPA Notice, supplements our other privacy notices and policies and shall govern in the event of a conflict between this CCPA Notice or other privacy notices and policies. However, if any other notice about CCPA is provided at the point of collection, then that other notice shall govern in the event of a conflict with this CCPA Notice as permitted by applicable law.
NOTE FOR NON-CUSTOMERS OR PROSPECTIVE CUSTOMERS. Please note that this CCPA Notice does not apply to certain human resources data or business-to-business communications data, or those data subjects. If you would like information about human resources data or business-to-business communications data, please reach out to your contact at Arbico Organics.

Non-Personal Information. As permitted by applicable law, we do not treat de-identified data or aggregate consumer information as personal information, and we reserve the right to convert, or permit others to convert, personal information into de-identified data or aggregate consumer information. Also, as permitted by applicable law, we may choose not to treat publicly available information as personal information. CCPA does not require us to re-identify information or to keep personal information longer than we need it to respond to requests.

Sales of Personal Information
The concept of a "sale" under CCPA is different from what has traditionally been considered a "sale", e.g., selling a customer list for money. Under CCPA, a "sale" potentially includes other uses or disclosures of personal information to third parties outside Arbico Organics in a commercial context where an exception to "sale" as provided by the CCPA does not exist. Because the concept of "sale" is arguably so broad under CCPA, Arbico Organics may conceivably be deemed to "sell" personal information described in the following categories, even if such "sales" are not the exchange of that personal information for money: identifiers; individual records; characteristics of protected classifications under California or federal law; commercial information; internet or other electronic network activity information; geolocation data; audio, electronic, visual, or similar information; professional or employment-related information; and inferences information.
Please note that Arbico Organics will treat your direction to Arbico Organics to complete a transaction with us as your direction to have Arbico Organics provide certain related personal information that may be included in your transaction to a small group of vendors who provide services to fulfill your transaction, and we do not treat that as a sale. These include payment processors, fraud prevention services, and shippers.
Disclosures Of Personal Information
In the furtherance of Arbico Organics's business purposes, Arbico Organics may disclose personal information that are within the following categories: identifiers; individual records; characteristics of protected classifications under California or federal law; commercial information; biometric information; internet or other electronic network activity information; geolocation data; audio, electronic, visual, or similar information; professional or employment-related information; and inferences information.
Right Of Deletion
If you are a consumer (as defined in CCPA), you have the right to request that Arbico Organics delete any personal information about you that Arbico Organics has collected from you, but CCPA permits Arbico Organics to exclude some personal information from a deletion request if that personal information is necessary for Arbico Organics to maintain for certain permitted purposes under CCPA. Accordingly, Arbico Organics will comply with deletion requests made under CCPA, but some personal information about you may be retained by Arbico Organics, as permitted under CCPA.
