Connecticut Farmland Trust and the Connecticut Department of Agriculture are committed to protecting the privacy and accuracy of confidential information to the extent possible, subject to provisions of state and federal law. Other than as required by laws that guarantee public access to certain types of information, or in response to subpoenas or other legal instruments that authorize access, personal information is not shared beyond the Connecticut Farmland Trust or the Department of Agriculture without your consent. By submitting a listing, you are consenting to Connecticut FarmLink positing your listing and its information on the website. We do not re-distribute or sell personal information collected on our web servers to third-party organizations. Nor do we re-distribute or sell the information you provide as part of the creation of a profile listing on this website.

3. Connecticut Farmland Trust and the Department of Agriculture will only use personal information shared by users of the site about their farm operations or farmland properties in the following ways: (1) posting of profiles so that mutually beneficial farmer-farmland connections might be fostered, (2) individual connection facilitation efforts through the staff or designated agents of Connecticut Farmland Trust and the Department of Agriculture who are in contact with farmers and landowners, and (3) as aggregated data for helping our organization and our partners understand opportunities and challenges for fostering more farmer-landowner connections in the future.
4. Your sharing of demographic information is voluntary and may be used as part of aggregate data reports concerning the demographics of who we serve.
5. We retain profile listing data as needed even after the listing is no longer active for analyzing trends in listings that will help us be more effective in connecting farmers and farmland owners going forward. We make good faith efforts to store data securely, but can make no guarantees.
6. We may use your contact information to provide you with information we believe you will find useful. This would likely come in the form of emails that would share new profile listings, education events, and tips on making farmer-landowner relationships work well.
