What personal data we collect and why we collect it
What Personal Information Yara Collects
- Personal information is information about an identifiable individual, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address or payment information (“Personal Information”). We collect Personal Information when you voluntarily provide it through our Site, or when you provide it to us through other means. For example, we may collect Personal Information when you:
- Provide us with information through our Site;

- Otherwise, provide us with Personal Information.
The Personal Information we may collect may include:

We may transfer your Personal Information to third-party service providers that assist us with carrying out these purposes. For example, we may use a data processing contractor to operate computer systems on our behalf.
We may also use, or disclose your Personal Information to third parties, if we have reason to believe that using or disclosing such information is necessary to: (i) conduct investigations of possible breaches of law; (ii) identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating an agreement they have with us; (iii) investigate security breaches or cooperate with government authorities pursuant to a legal matter; or (iv) to protect our rights, safety or property.

Personal Information collected online may also be combined with information you have provided to Yara through other sources such as over the telephone.
How We Protect Personal Information
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We protect your Personal Information by maintaining safeguards intended to help protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access. Personal Information may only be accessed by persons within our organization, or our third party service providers, who require such access to carry out the purposes indicated above, or such other purposes as may be permitted or required by the applicable law. We manage the Personal Information we collect out of Toronto.
We retain Personal Information that we collect as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or to meet any legal requirements. We destroy Personal Information when it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected.
Although we have taken measures to help protect our Site, computer systems and any Personal Information that we have collected, no security measures can provide absolute protection. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.
