What is personal information
Personal information is any information about an identifiable person including the name, address, telephone number and e-mail address but excluding the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization. Agropur collects only personal information that you provide voluntarily. You may also provide us information about products that you have purchased.
Information we collect
We collect personal information from you only for the purposes we identify to you at or prior to the time we collect such personal information. When we do collect personal information, the purposes for which your personal information is to be used will be identified to you.
Agropur may collect and use your personal information:
- To update and verify your personal information that may already be in our database;
- To respond to your inquiries and comments;

Information gathered with technology
Agropur uses reasonable efforts to ensure we obtain the appropriate form of consent. In determining the appropriate form of consent, Agropur takes into account the sensitivity of the information provided. If there are purposes for which we intend to use your personal information other than the purposes for which the initial consent has been given and beyond what you may reasonably expect, we will obtain further consent.
You may opt-out of being contacted and withdraw consent from having your personal information used for marketing purposes or from having your personal information used for market research purposes. Newsletters, promotional material and e-mails sent by Agropur will detail how you may opt-out of being contacted. Withdrawing consent or opting-out may in some instances result in your inability to participate in certain programs, features or promotions.
Security against personal information loss and theft
We never knowingly solicit, collect, store or disclose personal information from children who are under 16 years of age. We may collect and use only the contact information, i.e. the name, home address, e-mail address and/or telephone numbers of a child 13 to 16 years of age. If a child under the age of 16 wishes to disclose to us personal information, he/she must provide us with his/her parent’s or legal guardian’s e-mail address so that we can obtain express consent to the collect and use of his/her contact information. If a child under 16 has already provided us with personal information, his/her parent or legal guardian may contact us for the purpose of correcting or deleting such information.

We will only keep your personally identifiable information for as long as it is required for internal business purposes and in order to satisfy various accounting and legal requirements. When we no longer require information, we will take steps to ensure that it is destroyed, or that your personally identifiable information is removed.
You have the right to have a copy of the personal information you provide to us, and to correct or update your personal information. Upon written request, we will inform you of the existence, use and disclosure of your personal information and give you an opportunity to review your personal information.
