Barn2Door, Inc. Privacy Policy

LAST UPDATED: 23-MARCH-2015

Barn2Door will not sell, rent, or give away any of your personal information without your consent. It is our overriding privacy principle that any personal information you provide to us is just that: private. We do not presume that you are granting us permission to share your personal information with third parties wanting to sell you products or services that you have not requested. In order for us to provide some of the services we offer, we may on occasion need to provide information you supply us to external parties. Barn2Door will not share your information with third parties for any reason other than to communicate with and provide services to you. Barn2Door may need to purge information from its system from time to time, and does not promise to keep any information beyond what is required by applicable law or regulation.

INFORMATION DESIGNATED AS PUBLIC

As part of our service you may decide to provide information specifically to be shared with third parties. For example, we may build statistical reports based on what items have been offered, purchased or requested through Barn2Door. In cases such as these, we will try to make it clear whenever any information you provide us will be made public. Even when you give us permission to make certain information public, we will still protect the information designated private (such as your name, email address, and other information specifically tagged to your identity) from being disclosed.

INFORMATION COLLECTION

Barn2Door is the sole owner of the information collected on this site and through any Barn2Door service. As visitors browse our web site, or your sites/profiles if they are hosted by Barn2Door, we sometimes track them and their interactions in order to provide a better service (e.g., using visitor log data in order to monitor navigation scenarios).

CHILDREN'S PRIVACY

Our websites and our services are not intended for children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from users under this age.

CORRECTIONS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION AND OPT OUTS

This web site makes it easy to correct any mistakes in your personal information at any time. Whenever possible, we will give you an opportunity to review and change any information you provide to us. If you notice a mistake in the information you provide us, you can always revise it. This can be done either online or contacting us directly at hello@barn2door.com.

COOKIES

Our site uses "cookies" to provide a better service to our users. Cookies are placed by your browser on your computer's hard drive to assign a unique identification for your computer. Barn2Door never stores information we consider personal or private in a cookie. This eliminates the chance of other sites reading our cookies and learning your personal or private information. Instead, we use cookies to help direct you to the appropriate part of our web site. For example, a cookie may indicate that you are a repeat visitor to our site. We will then use that information to present you with more informative pages customized to your preferences. Our goal is to use cookies in order to provide a personally customized and easy-to-use service.

If you do not want Barn2Door or other websites to use cookies, you can disable them within your browser. Some portions of the Barn2Door website are still functional without cookies. You may delete Barn2Door's cookies through your browser's cookie manager. Be aware that this will reset your session, disable auto-login, and may adversely affect other functions on the Barn2Door website.

As part of our service, Barn2Door may place cookies on the browsers of your visitors to your Barn2Door profile. We do this to track potentially malicious visitors and reduce the chance of blocking legitimate users.

DATA AGGREGATION

Barn2Door may aggregate data we acquire about you, the visitors to your site, and/or food offered, purchased or requested. For example, we may assemble data to determine demand for certain foods in a given region or for a given season. If we assemble this sort of data and provide it to external parties, your personal information (such as your name, email address, and other information specifically tagged to your identity) will never be attached to or included in the aggregated data. Please note, public data you provide us may be included in the aggregate data, reports and statistics.

PROMOTIONAL PARTNERS

From time to time, Barn2Door may notify you about an offer from one of our promotional partners (e.g., an offer for free or discounted shipping, a gift with purchase) via our website or email. While we may target particular types of users for these offers, we will do all of the targeting within our system. Our business partners will not have any access to the targeting information, including the names of the people who may be interested in a particular product or service. Until you affirmatively respond to a promotional offer, we will not reveal any identifying information about you to any of these partners. Note that these partners may have their own Privacy Policies and may not be covered by Barn2Door's policy.

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

The Barn2Door website and the other websites contain links to the sites of third parties. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these external sites. We encourage users to be aware when they leave our website, and to read the privacy statements of other websites. We cannot guarantee that these third parties abide by the privacy principles outlined here.

LAW ENFORCEMENT

It is possible that Barn2Door may be required by court order to provide information about our customers. Barn2Door may also be required to provide information pursuant to law, applicable regulation, subpoena or other legal process. If we are ever required to provide information under these circumstances, we will, whenever possible, attempt to inform users whose information we are compelled to reveal.

NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES

We will always maintain the overriding principle that we will not sell, rent, or give away any personal information you share with us without your consent. We do not believe we will need to change that principle going forward. However, if we do need to change any other aspect of the policy, we will post changes on the website.

Barn2Door, Inc. Requirements for Sellers

GENERAL SELLER PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS

The following practices are required of all sellers posting food for sale on Barn2Door (B2D).

We reserve the right to suspend sellers in our sole judgment, with or without notice, who do not comply with Barn2Door quality standards and practices. If anyone suspects a seller is not following B2D best practices, we encourage any Barn2Door user to contact us.

We appreciate sellers who value heirloom seeds and heritage breeds, actively work to increase biodiversity, care for their environment and living conditions of animals, and strive to make their farm ecosystem as healthy as possible.

Barn2Door strongly advocates for non-GMO foods and inputs. Genetically engineered seeds, plants or products are not allowed for sale on Barn2Door. That said, we appreciate non GMO feed inputs are sometimes difficult to validate or ascertain... For example, animal feed inputs may include restaurant / bakery / grocery extras (a good sustainable practice), and ingredients cannot be identified as organic quality or GMO free. Sellers may sell those animals on Barn2Door but must expressly state all feed inputs. Non-compliant items will be suspended.

Without exception, all animals for sale on Barn2Door should not be given hormones and should not receive routine antibiotics - antibiotics typically used to offset substandard feed quality and living conditions. As a rule, animals should have adequate space to express natural behaviors and shelter from weather and predators.

All seafood should meet 'Green - Best Choice' practices according to Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Best Choice Seafood Watch program.

SPECIFIC BEST PRACTICES PER FOOD CATEGORY

In addition to Barn2Door's General Quality Standards and Practices, some food categories require further clarification. Sellers must comply with practices per food category. Note: some food items have varying requirements for storage, sale and transportation per state (e.g. raw milk, eggs, frozen meat, preserved goods). All Barn2Door sellers maintain sole and exclusive responsibility for compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations pertaining to their specific food product, including, but not limited to, handling, packaging, transit, temperature controls and disclosures.

POULTRY

Birds must be pastured; this includes free ranging or in pens with adequate space for running, jumping, foraging and other natural behaviors. No-debeaking practices or synthetic yolk colorants are allowed. Fresh grit, dust bath areas, supplemental feed and shelter from predators should be available. Waterfowl should have access to clean water deep enough to submerge their head.

BEEF CATTLE, LAMB, GOATS AND OTHER LIVESTOCK

Livestock raised for meat purposes must be grass-fed and ideally, grass-finished. We recognize that some consumers prefer grain-finished livestock - IF there is grain supplementation (grain-finished is allowed - grain-fed is not allowed) sellers must be transparent ‘to the grain’. This means listing any / all grain inputs, specification of brands, origins, practices, quality and duration of grain-finishing. Any supplements, hay or other inputs must be communicated per item. Livestock should be rotated regularly, humanely treated, and always have access to fresh water.

DAIRY CATTLE

Cows should be grass-fed and pastured. Any supplements, hay or other inputs must be clearly communicated per item. Cattle should be rotated regularly and always have access to fresh water. A limited amount of grain is acceptable, but never more than 6% of their daily intake (all inputs must be identified and communicated to customers, see Beef Cattle above).

PORK

Pigs are often fed scraps and food waste. We understand it is hard to determine if scraps are non-GMO or organic quality. Because buyers deserve transparency: without exception, all feed inputs, including but not limited to restaurant / bakery / grocery extras (a good sustainable practice), must be clearly stated per item. Further, all feed and inputs must be communicated including but not limited to feed brands, origins, practices and quality.

HONEY AND SYRUP

Honey and syrup must be harvested from treatment-free bees and trees (no pesticides); all honey and syrup must be 100% pure and must contain no additives, diluents, colorants or sugars.

WHAT PRODUCTS CAN I SELL ON BARN2DOOR?

Barn2Door invites you to sell food grown, harvested and minimally processed direct from your boat, farm, garden or ranch. Besides food farmed and foraged, producers may also sell a handful of non-food items (see Non-Food Items, below). We will continue to review additional products for approval. Products that do not meet Barn2Door requirements will be removed, and will no longer appear in your store. Please contact us with questions or product recommendations.

NON-FOOD ITEMS

Farms often have by-products they can craft into value-added products and goods with an eye toward 1. extending their selling season, 2. expanding their product offering of 3. resourcefully using all parts of an animal. Examples might be crafting jams or dried fruit leather, making cheese from goat milk, yarn from wool or soap from tallow. Some of these items are not food. We want to support the viability of sustainable food producers by also allowing the sale of non-food items. Non-food items such as flowers, plant starts, trees, firewood, wreaths, compost, livestock feed, wool, soap, candles, farm dinners, hides and bones are allowed. Please contact us to inquire about additional items not listed here.

FRUIT AND VEGETABLES

All fruit, vegetables, mushrooms and plant products are acceptable. These on-farm items may be fresh or minimally processed (e.g dried, frozen, preserved). Examples include but are not limited to: frozen berries, dried mushrooms, dried herbs, pureed fruit, jam or jelly. IF using ingredients from other farms to make preserves or add to your CSA, please list farms and make sure they abide by Barn2Door farming standards and practices.

SEAFOOD

Fresh, frozen, dried and canned seafood are acceptable if harvested by or for the producer / fisher represented in that producer's store. Filets and whole fish, jerky, roe, smoked seafood and lox are welcome. If you want to sell variable weight items / seafood, please contact us directly.

DAIRY

In addition to fresh milk, cream and eggs, dairy products made by the producer may be sold on Barn2Door. Cheese, butter, yogurt, kefir and other fermented and aged dairy products are allowed if they are made specifically using a single farm's milk, with the intention of being sold by the farmer. Dairy products from third party producers are not allowed.

POULTRY

We welcome the sale of poultry by the cut or by the whole bird. At this time, sellers should set a flat price for the item. We plan to support sales of poultry with variable weight in the future.

MEAT

Sellers are welcome to list meats by the cut or by shares of an animal. Sellers can set a flat price for a share of the animal (1/4 share of beef, 1/2 hog) OR ask for a deposit (we charge final hanging weight separately - email us for more info). Please include all slaughter and butcher fees in the price of posted meat and / or include butcher contact info in your item details. Dried meat jerky and sausage(s) without additives are allowed (e.g. no corn syrup or pineapple juice allowed; dried herbs and salt and pepper are acceptable - contact us for more info).

PANTRY

Honey and syrups are allowed provided they contain no additives. Other edible products from the hive are also allowed (i.e. bee pollen, comb, propolis). Other shelf-stable pantry items include but are not limited to seeds, nuts, grains, pickles, kimchi, flour (milling is allowed), jams, dried herbs.

ALLOWABLE OFF-FARM INGREDIENTS: citric acid, organic citrus, vinegar, honey, sugar, real maple syrup, Pomona’s pectin, rennet, bacteria cultures, organic spices, salt and pepper. Sellers must include ingredient details per item or items will be removed. If you want to include an ingredient not currently outlined in ‘allowed’ or ‘never allowed’ ingredients, please email us.

NEIGHBORING FARM INGREDIENTS: if you are making value-added products on your farm and want to add off-farm ingredients from other farms, please contact us. We approve these (and fold them into our terms) on a case by case basis.

NEVER ALLOWED INGREDIENTS: corn syrup, nitrites, sodium (MSG), flavor enhancers, food coloring or dyes.

SELLER PAYMENT TIMING AND PROCESSING

PAYMENT TIMING

Barn2Door officially pays Net 30 Days from Delivery or Shipment date. That said, Barn2Door strives to pay sellers early in that window (average payment is Net 7 days from Delivery or Shipment). Barn2Door pays sellers through our payment processor, Stripe. For security and prompt payment, a valid US bank account is required for Stripe to issue payments to sellers.

PAYMENT PROCESSING

Barn2Door is using Stripe to enable payment processing services for sellers; please refer to the Stripe account terms for details, including Stripe terms of service. Sellers on Barn2Door will need to agree to the Stripe Services Agreement (note: Stripe may modify its agreement from time to time). As a condition of Barn2Door enabling payment processing services through Stripe, sellers will need to: 1. agree to provide Barn2Door accurate and complete information about you and your business, and 2. authorize Barn2Door to share with Stripe general and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services.

Stripe will periodically issue Internal Revenue Service Form 1099-K's to sellers with annual sales of more than $20,000, to facilitate sellers' accounting and tax preparation. In order to verify seller identification, and prepare and issue 1099-K's, Barn2Door is required to ask sellers for their tax identification number (EIN or SSN). Incorrect information provided by sellers may delay Stripe's ability to issue 1099’s in a timely fashion.

SATISFACTION AND RETURNS POLICY: REQUIREMENTS OF SELLERS

Barn2Door enforces high quality standards for food, product and service quality. Food producers who sell food on Barn2Door are held at a high standard including but not limited to employing sustainable practices, and providing transparency on all food, animal and soil inputs. Barn2Door requires sellers to stand behind every product offered for sale in their store(s).

Sellers agree to provide high customer service to their buyers, to seek their trust and satisfaction through quality products, practices and information, and to comply the Barn2Door customer satisfaction policy. Barn2Door enforces transparency, trust and good service; we want customers to shop confidently and to be happy with every order they receive from a Barn2Door seller.

Sellers who stand behind their product may occasionally need to provide a refund to their customers. Please email us in the event you need to facilitate a refund. Here is a partial list of instances where sellers would be responsible for providing a partial or full refund: the customer is unhappy with the quality of the product. It wasn’t fresh, was damaged in some way, was not delivered on time, and / or wasn’t represented accurately in the seller’s item posting. Examples:

  • The customer is unhappy with the quality of the product. It wasn’t fresh, was damaged in some way, or wasn’t represented accurately in the seller’s item posting.

  • The seller didn't fulfill the order as promised. For example, the quantity or weight of the product was less than promised or some/all of the order was inaccurately fulfilled.

  • There was a problem with the pickup or delivery of product that caused the customer to be unhappy with the service they received.

  • Communication with the customer wasn’t prompt, complete and / or courteous. The interaction with the seller left the customer with questions or doubts about Barn2Door's commitment to providing excellent service.

At its discretion, Barn2Door has the ability to manually adjust for the cost of a return.

QUALITY STANDARD(S) AND COMPLIANCE

Barn2Door takes quality standards, compliance and our promise to buyers and sellers very seriously. We audit the accuracy of farming practices and product certifications, and continually build accountability, quality controls and compliance into our platform.

Sellers sell directly to their customers through a store they set up and manage on Barn2Door. Sellers are solely responsible for the accuracy of their profile, as well as all information in items and about their products, including applicable legal and regulatory disclosure that may pertain to their products. Barn2Door requires full disclosure regarding soil, farm and feed inputs to best promote transparency and trust between buyers and sellers.

Third party certifications (e.g. Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project and Animal Welfare Approved) have strict requirements including transparency on a product by product basis. Sellers must be clear if certain practices and certifications are per product, or if they extend to the entirety of a seller’s operation.

To support our commitment to sustainability, Barn2Door reserves the right to immediately suspend any item if we believe the product information or farming practices listed may not be accurate or exhaustive. Any seller who knowingly misrepresents their farming practices or product certifications will not be permitted to sell on Barn2Door.

Barn2Door is honored to support sellers who work hard to provide their customers the highest quality, sustainably-produced food.
