Decisive Farming Corp.’s products and services are offered by Decisive Farming through web pages at www.decisivefarming.com and are made available subject to applicable terms and conditions between us and our customers. This Privacy Statement (“Statement“) discloses the policies and practices of Decisive Farming with respect to privacy and personal information.

OUR PLEDGE TO YOU
At Decisive Farming we understand the importance of privacy. We treat our customers as part of our team and carefully protect personal information entrusted to us. We do not disclose any personal information to any third party except as disclosed in this Statement or after obtaining your informed consent. With the growth of electronic media we recognize that it is necessary to take further steps to protect the privacy of the individual. We maintain reasonable administrative, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality and security of personal information you submit on or through this Site. Unfortunately, no website, server or database is completely secure or “hacker proof.” We therefore cannot guarantee that your personal information will not be disclosed, misused or lost by accident or by the unauthorized acts of others.
Decisive Farming may amend this Statement from time to time, for example, to ensure it remains accurate and to comply with changes in the law, so reference should be made to the effective date above to ensure that reference is being made to the most recent version.
While Decisive Farming may choose, in any particular case, to go further than the law requires, Decisive Farming does reserve all its rights to rely on any available statutory exemptions or exceptions and nothing in this Statement should be taken to waive Decisive Farming’s rights.
