This website is operated by BANANOW FAMILY. Throughout the site, the terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to BANANOW FAMILY, also referred to as BANANOW.LAND and BANANOW. BANANOW FAMILY offers this website, including all information, tools, and services available from this site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies, and notices stated here.
By using the Services, you consent to the collection, use, retention, and disclosure of your Personal Data for processing as described in, and subject to the limitations set out in this Privacy Statement.
Note to Residents of the European Union:
In order to comply with the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for our European users, this Privacy Statement outlines the legal basis on which we process your Personal Data and provides other information required by the GDPR.
Protecting your privacy is important to us. Personal Data is any information that would identify a person directly, or indirectly in combination with data from other sources. For example, a full name, home or WORK address, phone number, national identification number (SSN, SIN, etc.), email address, banking details, IP address, biometric data, usage data, or any information that may individually identify a person.
We may also create de-identified or anonymized data from Personal Data by excluding data components (such as your name, email address, etc.) that make the data able to personally identify you, through obfuscation, or through other means. In addition, we may collect and use aggregated, anonymous information to provide data about the Services to advertisers, potential business partners, and other unaffiliated entities. As this information does not identify a person and is therefore not Personal Data, BANANOW when using such aggregated, anonymized, and/or de-identified data is not subject to this Privacy Statement.
SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
When you use our website, we may collect the personal information that you voluntarily give us such as your name, and email address. We may also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us LEARN about your browser and operating system. Your consent is implied to collect and use your Personal Data to facilitate that use or complete that transaction initiated by you only. Email marketing (if applicable): If you have joined our mailing list, or if you email us, we may also send you emails about our new products, and other updates. You can opt out of our email list by selecting such a feature on our email.
SECTION 2 – CONSENT
How do you get my consent?
If we ask for your personal information for a reason, like for marketing purposes, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use, or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting our Privacy Compliance Officer (See contact at the end of this page).
SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE
We may disclose your personal information to government authorities if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms and Conditions of Use.
SECTION 4 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICE
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
When you click on links and/or hyperlinked buttons on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
SECTION 5 – SECURITY
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.
SECTION 6 – COOKIES
We may use a number of cookies, and when/if we do, you can choose if you want to opt out of cookies or not.
SECTION 7 - TRANSFER OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO OTHER COUNTRIES
The data that BANANOW processes, as well as data processed by associated services and providers, may be stored in servers located in the USA, CANADA, Europe, and/or elsewhere. It may be stored in multiple locations. However, we ensure that regardless of the place where it is stored, your data is stored in a way that is consistent with the standards of protection required under applicable law.
Where Personal Data is transferred from the European Economic Area to a country that has not received an adequacy decision by the European Commission, BANANOW relies on appropriate safeguards, such as for example the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses and EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks, to transfer the Personal Data.
By using our Services and submitting your Personal Data, you agree to the transfer, storage, and/or processing of your Personal Data in the locations contemplated above. Where and as required, we will seek your explicit consent as outlined in this Privacy Statement.
If our website or company is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you.
SECTION 9 – RIGHTS CONCERNING PERSONAL DATA
BANANOW is committed to ensuring you retain full access to and control of your Personal Data. To that end, we endeavor to respect your right to be informed regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Data, and your right to correction and access to it, via this Privacy Statement.
If you would like to access, correct, remove, request a copy of, withdraw consent to the collection of your Personal Data, or are looking for any additional information on how your Personal Data may be collected, used, or disclosed by BANANOW, please contact our Privacy Compliance Officer (See contact at the end of this page). Subject to certain exceptions and limitations that may be prescribed by applicable law, you will be provided with reasonable access to your Personal Data and will be entitled to have it amended or corrected as appropriate.
In certain circumstances, you may have the right to have your Personal Data, or certain components of your Personal Data, erased by BANANOW, to have your Personal Data moved, copied, or transmitted from our systems to other systems, or to object to or restrict certain processing of your Personal Data by us. In the event that you wish to inquire about, or seek to exercise any of these rights (as they may be applicable), please contact our Privacy Compliance Officer at: EMBASSY@BANANOW.LAND
