A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. I reserve the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. I reserve the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.
IP Addresses IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
Email Information If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone. This also applies when you register for our website, sign up through any of our forms using your email address or make a purchase on this site. For further information see the email policies below.
Children Under The Age Of 13 My Website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any information to or on the Website. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on this Website or on or through any of its features/register on the Website, make any purchases through the Website, use any of the interactive or public comment features of this Website or provide any information about yourself to us; including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact me.
How Do I Use the Information That You Provide to Me? Broadly speaking, I use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other items and services to our customers and prospective customers. Houseplants.xyz will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us, nor will such information be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection. I may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when I, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of my legal rights.
Email Policies I am committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. I do not sell, rent, or lease my subscription lists to third parties, and I will not provide your personal information to any third party individual, government agency, or company at any time unless strictly compelled to do so by law. I will use your e-mail address solely to provide timely information about Houseplants.xyz and its corresponding activities. I will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable federal law.
CAN-SPAM Compliance In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mail sent from me will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from my mailing list so that you receive no further e-mail communication from me.
Choice/Opt-Out My site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from me and my partners by reading the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of any e-mail they receive from me at any time. Users who no longer wish to receive my newsletter or promotional materials may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the e-mail.
Restricted Access I may in the future need to restrict access to parts (or all) of our website and reserve full rights to do so. If, at any point, I provide you with a username and password for you to access restricted areas of my website, you must ensure that both your username and password are kept confidential.
How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions? Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, I request that you do not send private information to me by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on my website may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information and other sensitive information is never transmitted via email. I may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of my site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas. For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, I use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
Visitors’ GDPR Rights If you are within the European Union, you are entitled to certain information and have certain rights under the General Data Protection Regulation. Those rights include: I will retain any information you choose to provide to me until the earlier of: (a) you asking me to delete the information, (b) my decision to cease using our existing data providers, or (c) I decide that the value in retaining the data is outweighed by the costs of retaining it. You have the right to request access to your data that I store and the rights to either rectify or erase your personal data. You have the right to seek restrictions on the processing of your data. You have the right to object to the processing of your data and the right to the portability of your data. To the extent that you provided consent to me processing of your personal data, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based upon consent that occurred prior to your withdrawal of consent. You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority that has jurisdiction over issues related to the General Data Protection Regulation. I require only the information that is reasonably required to enter into a contract with you. I will not require you to provide consent for any unnecessary processing as a condition of entering into a contract with me.
