By using this Website, you signify your acceptance of this Policy.
What is “personally identifiable information”? When reviewing this Policy you should understand that when we use the term “personally identifiable information”, we mean any information that can be used to identify or contact a specific individual, such as a name, address, telephone number or e-mail address. When we refer to “aggregate information”, we mean information that does not allow us to identify or contact a specific individual, such as demographic information, purchase categories, or visitors using a particular browser to access the Website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through GardenOfLife.com public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others
What does GN do with personally identifiable information collected on the Website? We will use personally identifiable information provided by visitors to fulfill the purpose for which such information was provided, as described in this Policy, or as disclosed at the time the visitor information is collected. We use the information submitted to GN to respond to your inquiries, to ask you follow-up questions about which products you have purchased or are considering purchasing, to inform you of new products and services, in order to improve our services and better understand your needs. We will not use the information submitted to the GN for marketing purposes, nor share it with any third party for marketing purposes, unless you consent to this use. We also may use the information submitted. We may store the information you submit via the GN for such period of time as may be necessary, in our discretion, to resolve your inquiry or as may be needed/helpful to GN. We may also offer visitors the opportunity to receive special promotions. If a visitor elects to receive such offers by becoming a Member, we will use the information provided by that visitor to send those offers. We also may use personally identifiable information or IP addresses to provide you with customized content on our Website or to provide you with information most relevant to you.
Can I “opt out” of receiving e-mail promotions from GN? If you change your mind about receiving promotional e-mails or electronic newsletters, you may choose not to receive such communications from us by: (1) following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the specific e-mail from which you wish to opt-out or (2) sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, specifying the particular e-mail list(s) from which you wish to be removed. We will honor your request made pursuant to these methods as promptly as practicable. Even if you elect to stop receiving promotional e-mails from us, we may still contact you to tell you important information about the Website or us.
GN may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, GN may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to GN, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
What does GN do with aggregate information collected on the Website? Because aggregate information collected on the Website does not personally identify you, we may use aggregate information for any purpose, and share aggregate information with third parties for any purpose. We share the information gathered using cookies, Pixel Tags and other similar technologies with a third party vendor who provides us reports of this aggregated data. We use this data to improve our site by responding to our users’ interests and providing more relevant and useful information. For example, we may use aggregate information collected on the Website to evaluate how the Website is being used. In addition, we may collect and analyze information about how many visitors arrived at certain pages of the Website, how long they stayed on those pages, and where they went afterwards. This information allows us to determine which pages might be the most interesting to and popular with visitors and enables us to provide visitors with a better and richer experience on the Website. For example, we may use certain aggregate information to improve the performance of our Website. In addition, we may share statistical information derived from the information submitted with third parties; however, such statistical information is not associated with any individual in a personally identifiable manner.
How does GN protect the information I provide to the Website? We take reasonable precautions to safeguard the personally identifiable information transmitted between visitors and this Website and the personally identifiable information stored on our servers. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us through or in connection with the Website. No method of transmitting or storing data is completely secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us at email@example.com. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personally identifiable information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail.
Where will GN store and maintain information about me? We maintain this Website in the United States. Further, please note that any communication you send to a “growingnaturals.com” e-mail address or post on our bulletin board will necessarily be routed through the United States. By providing personally identifiable information and other information to this Website, and/or by sending a communication to a “growingnaturals.com” e-mail address, you understand and consent to the collection, use, processing disclosure and transfer of such information to the United States and other countries or territories, which may not offer the same level of data protection as the country where you reside, in accordance with the terms of this Policy.
Can GN change this Policy? Yes. We reserve the right to change this Policy in order to address future developments of GN, the Website or changes in industry or legal trends.
