Wilco.coop and Farmstore.com Privacy Policy

Updated as of September 2022


As a farmer-owned cooperative, our customers include our owners, as well as our own team members. As a values-based organization, we treat the protection of your privacy and the protection and security of all our data as a priority.  We strive to be transparent about our data collection and sharing practices and this Privacy Policy explains what information we collect, why we collect it, how we use it, when we disclose it, and your choices regarding that information. If you have questions about this Privacy Policy, contact us at

This Privacy Policy applies to this website and its subdomains, and all portals, applications, products, goods, services, events, and any interactive features, applications, or other services within the sites that post a link to this Privacy Policy (the “Site”).  The Site is provided by Wilco Farmers (“Wilco,” “Company” or “we,” “our” or “us”). In addition to information collected from you online, this Privacy Policy also applies to information (including the “Personal Information” defined below) that we may collect from you in person at our physical locations (each “Location”), via phone calls, website support chats or other communications with our personnel or in any other instance when you contact us, including in connection with your membership in the cooperative. We refer to all of the above as our “Services.”

As a preliminary matter, we handle all information you provide us with the utmost confidentiality. At times, we may need to disclose personal information to third parties outside the company who may be assisting us with providing Services to you, as set forth in this Policy.  For example, we may provide a mailing address to our printing partner to mail a letter or postcard and would have an agreement with that printer any information is kept confidential.

Please note that if you voluntarily provide your information in the course of interacting with our Site, visiting our Locations, or otherwise using our Services, we will take that as your consent and agreement to our collection, use, and disclosure of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into our Terms and Conditions that govern your use of this Site.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any products, goods, services, websites, or content that are offered by third parties (“Third Party Services”), which are governed by their respective privacy policies.

Your decision to provide us with the information above is voluntary, but if you choose not to provide any requested information, you may not be able to take advantage of all of the Site’s features, your Membership, or our Services

If you no longer wish for us or our service providers to collect and use location information, you may disable the location features on your device. Consult your device manufacturer settings for instructions. Please note that if you disable such features, your ability to access certain features, Services, content, promotions, or products may be limited or disabled.

            (c) Use of Cookies and other Tracking Technologies

We may use various methods and technologies to store or collect Usage Information (“Tracking Technologies”). Tracking Technologies may set, change, alter or modify settings or configurations on your Device. A few of the Tracking Technologies that may be used on the Site include, but are not limited to, the following (as well as future-developed tracking technology or methods that are not listed here):

  • Cookies. A cookie is a file placed on a Device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information on your Device. Our Site may use HTTP cookies, HTML5 cookies, and other types of cookie technology to store information on local storage.
  • Web Beacons. A Web Beacon is a small tag (which may be invisible to you) that may be placed on our Site’s pages and messages.
  • Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site, such as the links you click on.
  • ETag, or entity tag. An Etag or entity tag is a feature of the cache in browsers. It is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL.
  • Browser Fingerprinting. Collection and analysis of information from your Device, such as, without limitation, your operating system, plug-ins, system fonts and other data, for purposes of identification.
  • Recognition Technologies. Technologies, including application of statistical probability to data sets, which attempt to recognize or make assumptions about users and devices (g., that a user of multiple devices is the same user).


We may use Tracking Technologies for a variety of purposes, including:

  • To allow you to use and access the Site, including for the prevention of fraudulent activity and improved security functionality;
  • To assess the performance of the Site, including as part of our analytic practices or otherwise to improve the content, products or services offered through the Site;
  • To offer you enhanced functionality when accessing the Site, including identifying you when you sign into our Site or keeping track of your specified preferences or to track your online activities over time and across third-party sites; and
  • To deliver content relevant to your interests on our Site and third‑party sites based on how you interact with our content

          (d) Information We Collect When You Interact with Third-Party Sites

The Site may include functionality that allows certain kinds of interactions between the Site and your account on a third-party website or application. The use of this functionality may involve the third-party site providing information to us. For example, we may provide links on the Site to facilitate sending a communication from the Site or we may use third parties to facilitate emails or postings to social media (like a “Share” or “Forward” button). These third parties may retain any information used or provided in any such communications or activities and these third parties’ practices are not subject to our Privacy Policy. We may not control or have access to your communications through these third parties. Further, when you use third-party sites or services, you are using their services and not our services and they, not we, are responsible for their practices. You should read the applicable third-party privacy policies before using such third-party tools on our Site. Please also see our Terms and Conditions for further information.  An example of third party we may use are shipping providers like UPS or FedEx who would receive shipping information to calculate shipping rates and arrival times.

          (e) Information from Third Parties

In addition, we may collect information about you from other sources, including consumer credit reporting agencies and state or federal agencies. We may also obtain information about you from other partners who assist in our communications. We may combine the information we collect from third parties with information that we have collected from you or through your use of the Services. Occasionally, we may receive information about consumers from a third party, such as a mailing house, which may or may not be targeted to a specific household or individual. If you receive mailers from us, the addresses may have been provided to us by a mailing vendor and may not be tied to your specific Personal Information.  For example, we may send an advertisement postcard to “everyone” with an address on file within a designated area so receiving a postcard would not necessarily mean we have your address in any of our systems.

2.    Why We Collect Information

  • Providing products or Services to you, like processing your payments;

3.    When We Disclose Information

We may share your information, including your Personal Information, with our affiliates, service providers, business associates, and other third parties that perform essential services for us; some examples, a payment processor, an internet service provider where information is stored, an email marketing vendor where we create and send emails from, or entities that handle our shipping or mailing.

As permitted by law, we insist that these partners follow the same rules and standards with respect to your personal information as we do, and if it’s not included in the service agreement work to add an agreement with the other party which prohibits them from disclosing or using the information other than for the purposes for which it was disclosed.  As we’ve mentioned before, our own team’s data is included so we treat your personal information as our own and do not disclose it without serious consideration for how it’s handled.

In addition, we may disclose your information to companies with whom we have marketing or other relationship for direct marketing purposes. (If you are a California resident, you may have additional rights with respect to the transmission of your information for this purpose. Please see the section entitled “Your California Privacy Rights” below for more information.) In addition, we may share the information we have collected about you, including Personal Information, as disclosed at the time you provide your information and as described in this Privacy Policy.  We do not sell information for others to market, the sharing of information to our marketing partners is purely for Wilco marketing and communications.

We may aggregate, de-identify, and/or anonymize any information collected through the Site or Services such that such information is no longer linked to your personally identifiable information. We may use and share this aggregated and anonymized information (non-Personal Information) for any purpose, including without limitation, for research and marketing purposes, analytics, and may also share such data with our affiliates and third parties, including advertisers, promotional partners and others.

Certain nonpublic information about you may also be disclosed in the following situations:

  • To comply with a validly issued and enforceable subpoena or summons.
  • As necessary to properly comply with or respond to an inquiry or complaint from a federal or state agency.
  • In conjunction with a prospective purchase, sale, or merger of all or part of our practice, provided that we take appropriate precautions (for example, through a written confidentiality agreement) so the prospective purchaser or merger partner does not disclose information obtained in the course of the review.
  • As a part of any actual or threatened legal proceedings or alternative dispute resolution proceedings either initiated by or against us, provided we disclose only the information necessary to file, pursue, or defend against the lawsuit and take reasonable precautions to ensure that the information disclosed does not become a matter of public record.

In addition, if we have de-identified or anonymized data about you, we are not required to re-identify or otherwise link your identity to that data if it is not otherwise maintained that way in our records.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.


However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

As a California resident, you also have the right, at any time, to tell us not to sell Personal Information – this is called the “right to opt-out” of the sale of Personal Information. At this time, we do not sell our consumers’ personal information to third parties. We can, however, process your request to opt out of any marketing emails or correspondence we control.  You can also request that we delete your Personal Information. There may be certain exceptions to our obligation to delete your information, for instance, if you have an existing account or transaction with us, or if we have a legitimate business reason to keep your information.

6.    Children’s Privacy

believe has provided her or his information to us without parental consent, please contact us at and you can request the deletion of that information.

7.    Do Not Track Disclosures

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of an individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. Various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms for the expression of consumer choice regarding the collection of information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services (e.g., browser do not track signals), but there is no universally agreed-upon standard for what a company should do when it detects a DNT signal. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms. You can learn more about Do Not Track here.

8.   Visitors to the Site Outside of the United States

If you are visiting the Site from a location outside of the U.S., your connection will be through and to servers located in the U.S. The data protection laws in the United States may differ from those of the country in which you are located, and your information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in the United States according to laws of the United States. By using the Site or providing us with any information, you consent to the transfer to, and processing, usage, sharing and storage of your information in the United States and in other countries, as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

We will make good faith efforts to make requested changes in our then active databases as soon as reasonably practicable (but we may retain prior information as business records).

10. Links

For your convenience, the Site and this Privacy Policy may contain links to other websites. Wilco is not responsible for the privacy practices, advertising, products, services, or the content of such other websites. None of the links on the Site(s) should be deemed to imply that Wilco endorses or has any affiliation with the links. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information.  If you believe a link within one of our sites is not appropriate or creates any issues, please bring it to our attention so we can address.  The goal of any external links is to add value for our customers so please contact us if a link is no longer a helpful resource.

11.   Security

We incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your Personal Information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission, or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our Site, and you provide us with your information at your own risk.

12.  International Data Transfers

Because Wilco works with global companies and technologies, we may transfer your Personal Information outside of the country in which it was originally provided. This may include transfers to third parties, such as service providers or affiliated entities who are located outside the United States where data protection laws may not offer the same level of protection as those in the United States. When we transfer personal data outside of these areas, we take steps to make sure that appropriate safeguards are in place to protect your Personal Information.
