What are cookies and how does A Native Garden Design, Inc. use them?

Many websites use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive.  We use cookies to allow faster and easier access to your account information, monitor traffic on the site and measure traffic patterns to improve the website.  A Native Garden Design, Inc. Web pages may in the future contain electronic images known as Web beacons  (sometimes called clear gifs or Web bugs) or other advanced technologies that are useful in the provision of services to you. 

How does A Native Garden Design, Inc. use the information?

Our main goal in collecting information is to improve the site and provide you with the best possible experience on the site. We will also use your personal information to notify you of other services available from A Native Garden Design, Inc. and our affiliates.

Except as provided in this Privacy Policy, only A Native Garden Design, Inc. and our affiliates and service providers will have access to your personal information. We also may do research on our users' demographics and behavior based on the information you provide when you register, information from your activity on the site, information from our server log files or from surveys. We may compile, analyze or sell this information on an aggregated basis, which does not include information identifying individual users.  We also may share this data with business partners or other third parties.

Who is collecting information?

When you are on a A Native Garden Design, Inc. site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with A Native Garden Design, Inc. and our affiliates and service providers. If personal data is to be collected and/or maintained by any company other than A Native Garden Design, Inc. or its affiliates, we will try to notify you on the website or in an updated version of this Privacy Policy. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service.

Other websites to which we link may collect personally identifiable information about you when you visit those sites. The information practices of other websites linked to our websites are not covered by this Privacy Policy.

With whom does A Native Garden Design, Inc. share my information?

We will NOT disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. These are some of the ways that your information may be disclosed:

Data in the Aggregate:  We may disclose “blinded” aggregated data and user statistics to prospective partners and other third parties.  Blinded data is data which does not identify an individual person.

Other:  We also may disclose your information in special cases.  For example, when we believe that we must disclose information to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms and Conditions of Use, or may be causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other website users or customers, or anyone else that may be harmed by such activities. We may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service and improve our products and services.

As we continue to develop our business, we may buy or sell businesses or assets. In such transactions, confidential customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. In the event of a transaction involving the sale of some or all of A Native Garden Design, Inc.’s businesses, customer and site visitor information may be one of the transferred assets and may be disclosed in connection with negotiations relating to a proposed transaction.  In such case, the transferred information may become subject to a different privacy policy.

How can I control my personal information?

We offer our customers choices for the collection, use and sharing of personal information.  You may contact us if you wish to view, edit or delete your personal information from our database, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your request. 

What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of my information?

Because information sent through the Internet travels from computer to computer throughout the world, when you give us information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Except as specifically stated, this site does not use security encryption measures.  Information that you disclose by use of this site (as with any site that is non-secure), by posting a message or using email, potentially could be collected and used by others.  This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties or use of such information by third parties for their own purposes, legal or illegal. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

What else should I know about my privacy?

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose information online, that information is accessible to other customers and users. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information.  Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.

When you or we end your customer relationship with us, we will treat the information we have about you as if you were still our customer.
