Your privacy is very important to us!
Rainbow Grocery Cooperative Inc. (“Rainbow Grocery”) has a few fundamental principles that we follow:
Like most website operators, Rainbow Grocery collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Rainbow Grocery’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, Rainbow Grocery may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally identifying Information
Certain visitors to our websites choose to interact in ways that require us to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example:
Newsletters: If you choose to receive our sales newsletter updates via email, we collect your email address.
Online Orders: If you choose to place an order online for curbside pick up or delivery at https://shop.rainbow.coop, you will need to provide personal information so that we can process your payment and fulfill your order. This includes your name, email address, phone number, delivery address (for delivery orders), credit card number (stored by Stripe (www.stripe.com)), and credit card billing address. This information is shared with our partner Homesome (https://www.gethomesome.com/) so they can process these transactions for us.
In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the site. We do not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
