myAGWAY is a retail store with 6 locations focused on supplies for pets, wild birds, farm & feed, home decor, garden, lawn care, gifts, and general home maintenance. We maintain an informational website, social media profiles, Rewards Club / Frequent Buyer program, and an email newsletter. We are committed to your privacy through the safekeeping and confidentiality of the data you allow us to collect and process in pursuit of these purposes. This document explains how we collect, process, and share various types of data.
We do not share your data or contact information for any purpose other than for store updates, sales information, rewards club notifications, event invites, or other new/events that you specifically identify in your Rewards Club profile. You may withdraw your consent for any future contact from us at any time by using the unsubscribe link provided on our newsletters and/or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org, using our contact form or the phone number given on our website.

Your information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline.
