Privacy Statement

Thank you for visiting the Washington State Tree Fruit Association (WSTFA) website and reviewing our privacy statement. Our privacy policy is clear: We do not keep personal information about you when you visit our website unless you choose to provide that information to us, register in the member section of our site or sign up for online events. Below is detailed information should you log into our site and how information is collected and used.

Your Privacy, Our Reputation

Privacy for Web Visitors

One can visit our website with complete privacy. A website visitor can choose to provide customer specific information by ordering a product or service, send us an e-mail, or register on the WSTFA website. Any information provided by a website visitor is held strictly confidential within the Washington State Tree Fruit Association and its authorized agents, strategic partners, and financial service providers, and will not be sold, rented, leased, or otherwise made available to any other organization or business.

Privacy for Merchant Account Subscribers affiliated merchant banking companies and services collects information from Internet subscribers or users as necessary to provide merchant banking services. This information remains COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL and is transmitted between facilities under the highest encryption standards commercially available.

Types of Customer Information

On some web pages, users can order products, make requests or register to receive information. Such customer specific information will be used to fulfil the specific request or purpose for which it was provided. In addition, such voluntarily provided information may be occasionally used to offer products and services that may be of interest. Customer “testimonials” and praise for our products and services sent to us may be used on our website. These “testimonials” will have the personal information suppressed, unless we have received specific permission to include this information, or it is already in the public domain- ex: magazine article, blog, website, or other publicly accessible document.

Our Use of “Cookies”

“Cookies” are small files of data that we send to your computer to allow us to recognize you if you return to the WSTFA site using the same computer and browser. We send a “session cookie” to your computer if and when you log in to your WSTFA account by entering your gateway id and password. These cookies allow us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages in our site during the same session, so that you don’t need to re-enter your password multiple times.

E-Mail addresses

If you are currently receiving the Tree Fruit Topics and would like to be removed from the mailing list, send an email with the word “REMOVE’. Once removed, that email address will no longer receive information from WSTFA. You will need to re-register if you want to sign up again on the site.

Privacy of On-line Personal information

No personal information obtained on-line is released outside of the Washington State Tree Fruit Association or its authorized agents, except with the customer’s permission, as required by law, for safety reasons, or to survey customer satisfaction, under nondisclosure protection. We use the information provided when placing an order to complete that order. We do not share that information with outside parties except as necessary to fulfil the on-line order (e.g., providing the “ship to” address to our shipper.) We may also use that information to offer other products or services of interest. We do not sell, rent, lease, or make available, customer information to any outside party.

Access by Children

The Washington State Tree Fruit Association website is not structured to attract children under the age of 13. The Washington State Tree Fruit Association and its affiliated companies believe there is no information on its website which is inappropriate for viewing by children. Ordering on-line products and services from the Washington State Tree Fruit Association’s affiliated companies is limited to adults.

Other Web Sites

The websites of the Washington State Tree Fruit Association may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the content or privacy policies of other sites.
