As previously mentioned, we do not and will not sell or rent your information to third parties. We only restrict access to your information for the following:
Employees and Authorized Contractors
Our employees and authorized contractors may need to access information about you to perform their job. For example, your dedicated project manager representative would need access to your account to validate your identity and respond to your questions or requests; to ensure this information is sent correctly and any unsubscribe requests are properly managed; to review information to investigate attempted denial of service attacks, fraudulent account activity, or other attempts to compromise TS Agriculture’s services.
However, we may share information with third parties to assist in providing a more enjoyable and useful experience to all our customers under the following circumstances.
Please be reassured that we will not release your information to any third parties to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
Third-Party Service Providers, Authorized Resellers, and Partners
We will share limited information about you to authorized third party service providers we use for marketing services, communicating with you, managing our customer database, the provision of professional services, and providing and managing the Services (including hosting data centers, securing our Services, and payment processing).
We limit the number of service providers who are permitted to process your Content for the purpose of assisting us in delivering the Services. We refer to these service providers as “sub-processors” and they are listed on this page.
Where you have purchased a service from an authorized reseller or partner, we may provide information about you to (and may receive information about you from) the reseller or partner as necessary to support your use of the service you purchased.
Law Enforcement, Government Agencies, and Professional Advisors
We may need to disclose information about you where we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law or regulation, or if we are otherwise legally required to do so, such as in response to a court order or legal process, or to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or to defend against legal claims or demands.
In addition, we may be required to disclose information about you if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action:
a) Against illegal activities, fraud, situations involving potential threats to our rights or property (or to the rights or property of those who use our Services), or to protect the personal safety of any person; or

We may also analyze your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you, detect and reduce fraud and credit risks. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources mentioned above to help us do this effectively.
7) How We Protect Your Information
As previously mentioned, when you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected with the following software 128 Bit encryption on SSL. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
8) Your Obligations
As a user of our Site, you have certain obligations. Some are imposed by laws, and others have become commonplace in user-friendly communities of like-minded members such as TS Agriculture:
This includes respecting all intellectual property rights that may belong to third parties (such as trademarks or photographs). b) You must not download or otherwise disseminate any information that may be deemed to be injurious, violent and offensive or which may otherwise violate the spirit of our Website. Any violation of these guidelines may lead to the restriction, suspension or termination of your use of our Website.
9) Your Consent and Changes
10) Links to Other Websites
In addition, if you linked to our website from a third-party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site.
