It seems everyone else has one, and so we should as well. At first we thought perhaps we'd just say, "We don't save anything, and if we did we probably couldn't find it anyway. We sure don't share information with anyone! Although that's basically true, here is our official policy:
When you buy
When you purchase an item from a Barking Rock Farm, we require your name, e-mail address, phone number, and shipping address. If you pay by credit card utilizing Billpoint or Paypal, we do not have access to nor retain your credit card information in any way. If you pay by check, we do not retain your checking account information unless there is a serious question regarding the validity of the account.
When you visit our site
We do not have access to nor do we retain information about who uses our site.
How is Personal Information Used?
We use name and address provided to ship your merchandise. For IRS and Commonwealth of PA tax reporting (including sales tax) we retain your name and city/state/zip in a private electronic file that does not leave our establishment. Paper records, including our invoices with full name/address are retained for 5 years, after which they are incinerated on the premises.
You will NEVER receive any telemarketing calls OR unsolicited email as the result of buying from us! We will contact you about specials and/or new stock available via email only if you have indicated you wish us to do so.
How is Personal Information Disclosed?
Barking Rock Farm does not sell, disclose, transfer, rent, loan, trade, or lease ANY user information to any third parties. If you are a purchaser of livestock, your name/address will be furnished to the appropriate breed registry for purposes of generating your registration papers.
Barking Rock Farm will, of course, cooperate with all law enforcement and regulatory authority inquiries and will release information about you if we are compelled to do so. We may also disclose information about you in connection with an investigation of fraud.
