Privacy Policy

Overview

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which MDe collects, uses, maintains, and/or discloses information collected from users (each, a “User”) of the www.mainedowneast.com website (“Site”). This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by MDe. Site users may be subject to different protection standards, and broader standards may therefore apply to some. In order to learn more about the protection criteria, Users may refer to the applicability section.

Section I: How We Collect User Information

(NOTE; Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy carry the meanings given in our Terms-of Use.)

We may collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our Site, place an order, subscribe to a mailing list, respond to a survey, fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, services, features, and/or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for (as reasonably appropriate) name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and/or credit card information. Users may however visit our Site anonymously. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personal identification information at any time; however, this may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities (e.g. purchasing a product, engaging in our newsletter(s), etc.).

Section II: Information We Collect from Social Networking Sites

If you create an account on our website through a third-party connection or log-in (for example, through Facebook, or by “following” or “liking” Maine Down East on a third-party social media site, etc.), that third party may pass certain information about your use of its service to Maine Down East. This information could include the user ID associated with your account, an access token necessary to access that service, any information that you have permitted the third party to share with us, and/or any information you have made public in connection with that service. The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network. You should always review, (and if necessary) adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to Maine Down East.

Section III: Non-Personal Identification Information

We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer, and technical information about Users’ means of connection to our Site (e.g. the operating system, etc.), the Internet service providers utilized, and/or other similar information.

Section IV: Web Browser Cookies

Our Site may use “cookies” to enhance User experience. Users’ web browsers place cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. Users may choose to set their web browsers to refuse cookies or to alert them when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the Site may not function properly.

Section V: How We Protect and Store Your Information

Your information collected through the Squarespace service may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which MDe or its subsidiaries, affiliates, or service providers maintain facilities. MDe may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information, to affiliated entities, or to other third parties across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction, and you consent to the transfer of information to the U.S. or any other country in which www.mainedowneast.com or its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, or service providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

We sincerely care about the security of your information and use commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through the Service. However, it should be noted that no security system is impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee the security of our systems with 100% certainty. In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised, and take other steps in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations. Users may find advertising or other content on our Site that links to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors, and/or other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to, or from, our Site. In addition, these sites or services (including their content and/or links) may change. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies in which we have no control. Browsing and interaction on any other website (including websites which have a link to our Site) is subject to that website’s own policies and terms of use.

Section VI: Sharing Your Information

We do not sell, trade, or rent Users’ personal identification information to others. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and Users with our business partners, trusted affiliates, and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. We may use third-party service providers to help us operate our business and the Site or administer activities on our behalf, such as sending out newsletters or surveys. We may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes, provided that you have given us your permission.

Section VII: The Type of Data Collected and Stored

Mandatory Data: We require the collection of certain personal information (i.e. a User’s name, email address, address, and credit card information) only if the User requires orders to be processed from our site.

Optional Data: Emails and names may be requested from our Users if they wish to place an order, subscribe to the mailing list, respond to a survey, fill out a form, and/or in connection with other activities, services, features, resources, etc., we make available on our Site.
