Privacy policy

This Privacy Policy describes how your Personal Information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from mustseed.org (the “Site”).

We do not sell any Personal Information to third parties.

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information”.

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
- “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
- “Web beacons”, “tags”, and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers, account name or number), email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information”.

We may collect notes based on your contact with personnel in our organization for the purposes of support, sales, or vendor relationships including information such as relevant work history, religious affiliation, and location.

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to:
- Communicate with you;
- Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and
- When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information as described above. For example, we use Shopify to power our online store--you can read more about how Shopify uses your Personal Information here: https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy.

We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site -- you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

We retain the right to add and communicate with other third party services to continue providing you with high quality materials and customer service. We will not sell your Personal Information.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, to submit a shipping insurance claim, or to otherwise protect our rights.

BEHAVIORAL ADVERTISING
As described above, we use your Personal Information to provide you with marketing communications (e.g. email newsletters) we believe may be of interest to you. For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.

You can opt out of targeted advertising by using the links below:
- Facebook & Instagram: https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads
- Google: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/anonymous

- Twitter: https://business.twitter.com/en/help/ads-policies/other-policy-requirements/interest-based-opt-out-policy.html

Additionally, you can opt out of some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out portal at: http://optout.aboutads.info/.

OPT-OUT

You may opt out of email marketing communications from Mustard Seed Training at any time. Simply choose to opt-out when creating your website profile, or click the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of email newsletters. Please note that we will continue to communicate with you in order to fulfill your orders, even if you opt-out of marketing communications.

Customers from the European Union and the U.K. will receive an alert on the Site to opt-out of cookies used to collect your Personal Information. We will never sell your Personal Information. If you opt-out of cookies, your Personal Information may be collected when you place an order, and will only be used to fulfill your order(s). 

Opting out of website tracking will not impact your subscription status for our email marketing (newsletter). To unsubscribe, see instructions above.

YOUR RIGHTS

We believe you should be able to access and control your Personal Information no matter where you live. Depending on how you use the Site, you may have the right to request access to, correct, amend, delete, restrict, or object to certain uses of your Personal Information (for example, direct marketing). We will not charge you more or provide you with a different level of service if you exercise any of these rights. If you are a European resident, you have the right by law to access Personal Information we hold about you and to ask that your Personal Information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below.

Additionally, if you are a European resident we note that we are processing your information in order to fulfill contracts we might have with you (for example if you make an order through the Site), or otherwise to pursue our legitimate business interests listed above. Additionally, please note that your information will be transferred outside of Europe, including to Canada and the United States.

Finally, because there is no common understanding about what a “Do Not Track” signal is supposed to mean, we don’t respond to those signals in any particular way.

DATA RETENTION
When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain your Order Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.

CHANGES
We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.
