Your online privacy is very important to us, and we take it extremely seriously. We are committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of personal information provided by people who visit and interact with this website. This privacy policy describes what information we collect about you and how we use it.

Personally Identifiable Information refers to any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains, including, but not limited to, name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, financial profiles, Social Security number, and credit card information. Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (that is, without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.

Sharing and Selling Your Information

We hate spam and junk mail, too. We will never share, sell, trade, or rent any of your personal information such as your email address or personal details to anyone except when it is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested.

Permission Based Opt-in and Opt-out

If you choose to receive our email newsletter and give us your email, we may occasionally also email you information and/or offers we think you might find interesting. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time. Every email we send has an unsubscribe link at the bottom. Simply click the link, and you won’t receive any more messages.

Email Information

If you choose to email us, we may file the email messages and our response together with your email address. We use this information only to better answer your questions and as reference material to help others. We will never divulge your personal information to anyone else.

Credit Card Information

We do not collect or store any credit card or other financial information. All payments are processed by secure 3rd party vendors who do not share any of your financial information with us.

Routine Information Collection

All web servers track basic information about their visitors. This information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses, browser details, timestamps and referring pages. None of this information can personally identify specific visitors to this site. The information is tracked for routine administration and maintenance purposes.

Cookies

MyGardeningTips.net may use cookies to personalize or enhance your user experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs, retrieve any other data from your hard drive, or infect your computer with a virus. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web Server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.

Links to and from Third Party Web Sites

MyGardeningTips.net links to other websites and companies and is linked to by other websites. We have no control over and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these websites. Please visit the privacy policies of these third party sites in order to understand their privacy and information collection practices.

Do Not Track Requests

Some Web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Each browser communicates “Do Not Track” signals to websites differently, making it unworkable to honor each and every request correctly. In order to alleviate any communication error between browsers and website, we do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals at this time. As the technology and communication between browser and website improves, we will reevaluate the ability to honor “Do Not Track” signals and may make changes to our policy.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.  We will post any changes here, so be sure to check back periodically. However, please be assured that if the Privacy Policy changes in the future, we will not use the personal information you have submitted to us under this Privacy Policy in a manner that is materially inconsistent with this Privacy Policy, without your prior consent.
