The Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries (MALF) is committed to respecting your privacy. We’ve structured our website so that, in general, you can visit MALF on the Web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. Once you choose to provide us with personally identifiable information (any information by which you can be identified), you can be assured that it will only be used to support your customer relationship with MALF.
This statement regarding the privacy of the personally identifiable information you provide online covers five main areas: Awareness, Choice, Accuracy & Access, Security, and Oversight.
What we collect
When you request information or interactive services through this site, we need to know your e-mail address or, where you wish it to be sent by post, your name and postal address.
In order to tailor our subsequent communications to you and continuously improve our services, we may also ask you to voluntarily provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with our services and contact preferences.
How we use it
MALF uses your information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service.
From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact.
Who we share it with…
MALF will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others. Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide online with other MALF entities and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf for the uses described above. Such MALF entities and/or business partners are governed by our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data and are bound by the appropriate confidentiality agreements.
MALF will not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first letting you know and offering you a choice. As previously stated, we will also provide you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials from us and we will do everything we can to honour such requests.
Accuracy & Access
MALF strives to keep your personally identifiable information accurate.
MALF is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information.
