Healing Harvest Homestead Privacy Policy:

We, at Healing Harvest Homestead (HHH) respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you what personally identifiable information we may collect and how it may be used. 


In order for us to operate our business and provide services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to collect or process information about you. In general terms, this information will take one or more of the following forms:

1) Information that you provide to us directly, such as in completing an online form or sending us a message via our website;

2) Information that is automatically sent to us by your computer's internet browser when you visit out website, such as your computer's technical address (or IP address) or information about which particular internet browser you are using and so on;

3) Information about how you use our website or our services, such as which pages you visit, how frequently you visit the site and so forth.

This privacy policy sets out the detail of what information we collect as well as how that data is used and protected. 

Our Commitment to Data Privacy:

We are fully committed to maintaining the privacy of any information (personal data) that you provide to us. Furthermore, we commit to ensuring that such data is held securely, used approproiately, and only retained for as long as is necessary.

Our systems and services are designed with privacy in mind, and we operate a "data minimization" principle wherever possible. This means that we only ever ask you for the minimum amount of information required to provide our services efficiently; we have no desire to retain or maintain any more information than is necessary.

We aspire to comply to the fullest extent possible with applicable data protection regulations, in particular the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and ePrivacy Directive, where applicable.

Definition of "Personal Data":

When we refer to "personal data" we mean only information that allows us to identify you personally. Obvious examples include your name, email address, postal address, etc. We will always seek to gain your explicit consent to providing this information before we collect it from you, although this may not be the only legal basis on which we collect the data. 

Other types of information, such as your computer's IP address or broad geographical location, do not generally allow us to identify you directly. However, because in their current form, European data privacy regulations are somewhat vague in this regard, we will cover the use of such data here also.
