Privacy Policy

At Okanagan Fruit (“OKFruit”), your privacy is critically important to us. As such we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

It is OKFruit’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, OKFruit collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. OKFruit’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how OKFruit’s visitors use its website. From time to time, OKFruit may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

OKFruit also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. OKFruit does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to OKFruit websites choose to interact with OKFruit in ways that require OKFruit to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that OKFruit gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an email newsletter to provide an email address. In each case, OKFruit collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with OKFruit. OKFruit does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

OKFruit may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, OKFruit may monitor the most popular website pages or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. OKFruit may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, OKFruit does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

OKFruit discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on OKFruit’s behalf or to provide services available at OKFruit’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using OKFruit’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. OKFruit will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, OKFruit discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when OKFruit believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of OKFruit, third parties or the public at large.

OKFruit takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. OKFruit uses cookies to help OKFruit identify and track visitors, their usage of our website, and their website access preferences. OKFruit visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using OKFruit’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of OKFruit’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.


Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by OKFruit and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, OKFruit may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in OKFruit’s sole discretion. OKFruit encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
