MapShots, Inc. (“MapShots”) is concerned about privacy issues and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose information. This Privacy Statement describes MapShots’s practices in connection with information that we collect through the website(s) or mobile application(s) owned and controlled by MapShots from which you are accessing this Privacy Statement (respectively, the “Site” and the “App”), as well as offline where notice is legally required. By providing Personal Information to MapShots, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Statement.
MapShots may collect information that identifies you as an individual (“Personal Information”), including: your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card number, vendor and tax ID numbers, and purchase history. Mapshots may collect your Personal Information when you order a product or service, make a request for service or information, register a purchase, submit a warranty card, sign up for product demonstrations or subscriptions, participate in a survey or promotion, or when we meet you a trade show. We may combine Personal Information that we collect about you with Personal Information you provide to MapShots through other sources, such as product registrations, inquiries or marketing events. We will use the combined Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Statement for as long as it is combined.
We may use Personal Information to: respond to your inquiries or requests for service or information; fulfill your orders; process payments; send you information regarding the Site or App or products or services offered by MapShots; provide customer service; update you about changes to our terms, conditions, and policies; send you information about products and services that we believe may be of interest to you; personalize your experience on the Site; allow you to participate in promotions offered by MapShots; enable MapShots’s business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, researching and developing new products, enhancing MapShots’s website, improving MapShots’s services, developing and executing marketing events, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of MapShots’s promotional campaigns; and as we believe to be necessary or appropriate: (a) under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) to respond to requests from public and government authorities including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (d) to enforce MapShots terms and conditions; (e) to protect MapShots operations; (f) to protect MapShots rights, privacy, safety or property, you or others; and (g) to allow MapShots to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.
We may share your Personal Information with: MapShots affiliates for purposes described in this Privacy Statement; third parties who provide services such as: website hosting, data analysis, payment processing, order fulfillment, product distribution, infrastructure provision, IT services, customer service, email delivery services, credit card processing, auditing services; third parties that facilitate the promotion, sale, and distribution of products and services offered by MapShots; to a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of MapShots business, assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings); as we believe to be necessary or appropriate: (a) under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) to respond to requests from public and government authorities including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (d) to enforce MapShots terms and conditions; (e) to protect MapShots operations; (f) to protect MapShots rights, privacy, safety or property, you or others; and (g) to allow MapShots to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.
MapShots may also collect information relating to your but that does not reveal your specific identity (“Non-Personal Information”), such as: browser information, information collected through cookies, pixel tags, and other technologies, demographic and other information you provide, aggregated information (which may include Personal Information aggregated such that it does not identify any individuals), information from other businesses that support our customers, including but not limited to crop consultants, elevators, seed suppliers, farm managers, agricultural retailers, distributors, food and feed processors, grain merchandisers, and cooperatives; and information relating to your farming operation, including but not limited to field location, soil type, acres, crop protection used, seed selection, and other agronomic data.
Because Non-Personal Information does not personally identify you, we may use and disclose Non-Personal Information for any purpose. In some instances, we may combine Non-Personal Information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your geographical location). If we combine any Non-Personal Information with Personal Information, e.g., when we combine information you provide upon registration with Non-Personal Information to provide you with targeted personalized marketing, the combined information will be treated by MapShots as Personal Information.
Your “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP Address is identified and logged automatically in MapShots server log files whenever a user visits the Site, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. MapShots uses IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, administering the Site and presenting content that is tailored to your country. We may also use and disclose IP Addresses for all the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information. Please note that we treat IP Addresses, server log files and related information as Non-Personal Information, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law.
Third Party Sites and Advertisers
This Privacy Statement does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any site to which the Site or the App contains a link. The inclusion of a link on the Site or the App does not imply endorsement of the linked site by MapShots. MapShots may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit a MapShots Site. Please note that these companies may use information about your visit to this Site in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you.

MapShots uses reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information under MapShots control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with MapShots is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with MapShots has been compromised), please immediately notify MapShots of the problem by contacting MapShots in accordance with the “Contacting MapShots” section below.
Use of Site by Children
MapShots is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities. MapShots does not target the Site or the App to children less than fourteen (14) years of age or knowingly collect information from children for the purpose of selling products or services.
Choices, Access, and Changing your Personal Information
MapShots gives you many choices regarding MapShots’s use and disclosure of your Personal Information for marketing purposes. By contacting MapShots (see below), you may opt-out from receiving future electronic marketing messages from MapShots and request that we not share your Personal information with unaffiliated third parties for their marketing purposes. We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable.
