Privacy Policy


Welcome to the Gardening Products Review website (the “Site”, referred to as “we,” “us” or “our”). Your privacy is important to us.

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which ITG Multimedia, owner of the Gardening Products Review website, collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a “User”) of the Site. This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by ITG Multimedia. It explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by the Site.

Personal Information

“Personal Information” as used in this policy, is information that specifically identifies an individual. We may collect personal information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our site, subscribe to the newsletter, fill out a form, enter a giveaway or contest, purchase a product or service, leave a comment, correspond with us, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address, home address, telephone number, credit card or any other information needed to supply services or products.

Users may, however, visit our Site anonymously. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personal information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities.

After visiting our Site, ITG Multimedia will only contact you via e-mail if you have signed up to receive information, newsletters, purchased a product or left an inquiry with us.

Non-personal Information

We may collect non-personal information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information. We also may collect standard web log entries for each page you view, including your IP address, page URL, and timestamp. This web log data enables us to diagnose server problems, administer the Site, and provide functional service to users. The Site also may use web beacons or pixels in order to access cookies, to count users who visit the Site or open HTML email messages.

 

Our Site’s Use of Cookies

To enhance your online experience we and some of our partners may use “cookies.” Cookies are text files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your computer’s internet browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information. We use cookies to collect non-personal traffic information (such as the number of visits to our site and pages visited) and to improve our content, offerings, and delivery of advertisements. Cookies can also allow you quick access to certain areas of the Site by not having to re-enter your preference information.

We may share aggregated non-personally identifiable demographic information (e.g., geographic location) about our Site users with our visitors, partners and/or advertisers and/or investors. This information does not identify individual users.

Advertising provided by third-party advertising companies may deliver a cookie to you so the ads you see can be tracked. We do not provide these third-party advertising companies with any personally identifiable information. However, these companies may use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to the Site and other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We have no access to or control over the cookies used by third parties.

You may modify your browser preferences to provide you with choices relating to cookies. You may accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is being sent, or reject all cookies. You can manage your cookie settings by following directions in your internet browser’s “help” file. Please be aware, however, that some services on the Site may not function properly if cookies are disabled.

How we use collected information

ITG Multimedia may collect and use Users personal information for the following purposes:

  • To improve our Site
    We may use feedback you provide to improve our products and services.
  • To process payments
    We may use the information Users provide about themselves when placing an order only to provide service to that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the service. For your protection, any credit card information you may provide while purchasing products / services is not stored on our server. We utilize an external secure payment gateway provider to keep this information encrypted and secure on your behalf.
  • To run a promotion, contest, survey or other Site feature
    To send Users information they agreed to receive about topics we think will be of interest to them.
  • To send periodic emails
    We may use the email address to respond to their inquiries, questions, and/or other requests. If User decides to opt-in to our mailing list, they will receive emails that may include company news, updates, related product or service information, etc.

How we protect your information

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site.

Sharing your personal information

We do not sell, trade, or rent Users personal information to others. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. We may use third-party service providers to help us operate our business and the Site or administer activities on our behalf, such as sending out newsletters or surveys. We may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes provided that you have given us your permission.

We may also disclose your personal information if we are required to do so by law or in order to protect ours or others’ rights, or enforce our site policies, or as required by a court or government agency or to respond to a claim by you or a third party.

While we protect your Personal Information, please be aware that should you engage in aspects of our Site that make your Personal Information available for viewing by third parties online – for example, by commenting on blog posts, writing on message boards, participating in online chats – such information can potentially be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.

Third party websites

Users may find advertising or other content on our Site that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites. In no event shall we be liable or responsible, directly or indirectly, for the content and activities of these linked sites. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our Site, is subject to that website’s own terms and policies.

Advertising 

At this time we do not accept ads on the Site. However, at such time as we may change our advertising policy, ads appearing on our site 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 non-personal 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 does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Google Adsense

At this time we do not accept ads on the Site. However, we do use Google Analytics Advertising Features to track aggregate, non-personally identifiable information. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to Users based on their visit to our Site and other sites on the Internet. DART uses “non personally identifiable information” and does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, etc. You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy at http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html
