Bellevue Farmers Market Privacy Policy

Effective date: April 20, 2020

Updated: April 20, 2020

Since 2003, Bellevue Farmers Market has been dedicated to supporting small local farms by providing a viable, vibrant marketplace for farm products to be sold directly to consumers and to put on a weekly event for residents in the area that educates, nourishes, and fosters community. 

As a Bellevue Farmers Market shopper, your trust means a lot to us. This privacy policy explains how information about you is collected, used and disclosed by Bellevue Farmers Market when you become a member of Bellevue Farmers Market, access or use our websites or other online or mobile services or applications (which we call our “Services”), shop in our stores, or otherwise interact with us.

We may supply different or additional notices of our information practices specific to certain programs or activities. In addition, we may change this privacy policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the effective date above, and, in some cases, we may provide you with more prominent notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you a notification).

In some cases, we may also collect the information you provide about others, such as when you purchase a gift card for someone and request that we deliver it to them or purchase and ship products to someone. We will use this information to fulfill your requests and communicate with that person regarding the transaction, if applicable, but we will not send marketing communications to these individuals unless they separately consent to receive these types of communications from us.
