Your privacy is important to us. That’s why we’ve created this Privacy Policy; to help you understand what personal data Barlean’s processes, how it uses your data, for what purposes, and what you can do about it. 

 Personal Data We Collect:

 From time to time, we may ask you for information about yourself, such as your name, age, gender, or even whether you have pets or kids.  In most cases, we’ll include these as optional fields within a form, or in exchange for free educational materials.  We may use your email address to contact you regarding an order or services request; to answer your questions; or to enter you into one of our sweepstakes or giveaways.

 How can you remove your name from our email list?

To have your email address removed from our list of addresses that receive information about new products, blog posts, promotions and more, simply click on the “Unsubscribe” link that appears at the bottom of any email and follow the simple instructions. 

 How and Why We Use Personal Data:

 We NEVER sell or share your information to anyone outside our company. Instead, we use information we collect from you--with your consent--to help us better serve you, provide content you’re actually interested in, and to comply with legal and regulatory obligations (e.g., audit, accounting and statutory retention terms, and so forth). At the end of the day, we’re committed to protecting your privacy.

Do you use cookies?

 Like most websites, our website uses cookies (which are small computer text files) to gather certain information, like your computer’s IP address and how you interact with our website, pages you visit, or products you purchase. We collect this information in order to improve your user experience on the website and to make sure you are getting the content that you want.

To browse without cookies, you can configure your browser to reject all cookies, or to notify you when a cookie is set. Each browser is different so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences or you can visit aboutcookies.org.

To better serve our customers we may, from time to time, combine personal information we collect about you with other data to develop aggregate analysis for our business and marketing purposes.

We think you should be able to make choices about Barlean’s collection and use of your personal data. Your use of our website and services constitutes your acceptance to our data collection and privacy policy.

  Additional Rights

You may have additional rights under local applicable law. For instance, if the processing of your personal information is subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and your personal information is processed based on our legitimate interests, you have the right to object to the processing on grounds relating to your specific situation. You may also have the right under the GDPR to ask us to delete or restrict your personal information, or to ask for portability, where applicable, of your personal information.

 For purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the controller of your personal information is Barlean’s Organic Oils, LLC, 3660 Slater Road, Ferndale, Washington 98248.

 Legal Basis

Barlean’s legal basis for collecting your personal information is, under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), your consent and Barlean’s legitimate business purposes. Under the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority regarding any misuse of your private information or privacy rights

 Retention Period

We only retain personal information as long as necessary to achieve the purposes for which it is processed, including complying with legal and regulatory obligations. Because legitimate purposes and types of information vary, we have no pre-set, all-encompassing retention period.

 If you have any questions about this privacy policy or personal data we collect, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us anytime at privacy@barleans.com.
