If you have any questions or concerns about the Web page of a affiliate of Garden Connections, please contact us at privacypolicy@gardenconnections.com.

Garden Connections Privacy Policy
Garden Connections is committed to both protecting the privacy of users of this Web site and to providing those users with as many opportunities and services as possible. This Privacy Policy covers Garden Connections’ treatment of personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information that Garden Connections collects when users and visitors to this Site use the Site’s features. Except as otherwise required by law, this policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Garden Connections does not own or control, or to people that Garden Connections does not employ or manage.

What Types of Personal and Non-Personal Information Does Garden Connections Collect?
Personal Information means information that identifies or can be used to identify an individual.  It includes, for example, name, home address, telephone number, and email address.  As explained below, you have the option of submitting Personal Information to us while visiting our site.

  • Garden Connections collects the following personal information on the Site, including in areas such as Licencing and Franchise Opportunities:
  • If you request information about Garden Connections products or services or franchise offerings through our online form, we will collect your name and contact information, plus any other information you give us. You can choose whether Garden Connections will use this information to send you regular updates and offers.
  • Also, like most Web sites, this Site gathers traffic patterns, site usage information, and other aggregated data in order to evaluate our visitors’ preferences and the effectiveness of our Site. This aggregate data does not identify you individually.

We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. This Site is directed to adults at least eighteen years old, and when a user discloses personal information on this Site, the user is representing to us that he or she is an adult.

What Does Garden Connections Do with the Personal Information It Collects?
We may use your personal information for various purposes.  For example, we may use it to provide you with the information and/or services you request. (Please note that in order to fulfill your request, we may need to share your information with our affiliates, agents, and/or vendors.)

We may also use the information to send you updates about new Garden Connections’ products and services, promotional materials, or coupons unless you have informed us you would rather not receive this information. You can decide at any time to decline further updates from Garden Connections by sending an e-mail to privacypolicy@gardenconnections.com with “UNSUBSCRIBE” or “OPT-OUT” in the subject line.

Finally, we use your personal information to analyze the effectiveness of our online and offline marketing efforts and to develop products, services, and marketing programs.

We do not sell or rent to third parties any of the personal information that you disclose to us.

Does Garden Connections Share My Personal Information with Others?
We may share your personal information with our affiliates, agents, and lenders to or investors in our company.  For example, we may share your personal information with a vendor so that the vendor can help us deliver promotional mailings and coupons to you.  You can opt-out at any time of direct marketing from Garden Connections by contacting the corporate offices of Garden Connections at privacypolicy@gardenconnections.com.  If you wish to opt-out of direct marketing from an affiliate, please contact the affiliate directly.  We are not responsible for and do not control affiliate’s communications with you, for any purpose.  We do not authorize third parties unaffiliated with Garden Connections to make independent use of your information for their own purposes, such as for direct marketing. However, our affiliates may use the information to contact you. Please contact them directly if you do not wish to continue to receive such communications.

We may disclose information to law enforcement agencies or others if we are legally required to do so. In addition, certain statutory authorizations allow us to disclose personal information in emergency situations.

We may disclose, transfer, or sell the personal information collected through our Site as an asset of the company in conjunction with due diligence for or completion of a merger, reorganization, or sale to a third party of our company or a major portion of its assets. Although we do not currently anticipate such an event, changes to our privacy practices may result.

How Can I Access My Personal Information?
At your request, we will provide you with an opportunity to access and, if necessary, correct the personal information that you submitted via the online form and that is stored on our databases. To make a request, please contact us by sending an e-mail to privacypolicy@gardenconnections.com. We reserve the right to confirm the identity of the requester and limit the frequency of an individual’s requests. If you would like to access or correct personal information sent online to a affiliate, please contact him or her directly.

Will this Privacy Policy Ever Change?
We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy from time to time. If this Privacy Policy changes in any way, we will place an updated version on this page. Regularly reviewing this page ensures that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we will share it with other parties.

Use of Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record keeping purposes.   The use of cookies is an industry standard; you’ll find them at most major Web sites. This site uses cookies. By showing how and when guests use the site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on data such as total number of cookies to retrieve information from your computer that was not originally sent in a cookie. Garden Connections does not use cookies to identify specific individuals, except in such cases as contest registration (where a cookie allows you to enter a contest every day without registering again each time). You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers and/or partners / affiliates. Garden Connections does not control these cookies, and a different cookie policy may apply to them. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you’d prefer, you can set yours to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, it is possible that some parts of the site will not function properly if you do so.  We also use cookies to improve the performance of our advertising on other websites.

Security of Personal Information
Garden Connections is implementing technology measures to protect any personal information you submit from misuse and loss, such as firewalls and password-protected areas using established industry standards. These measures are also designed to protect personal information from unauthorized access, modification, and disclosure, but please be aware that no data protection measures are entirely foolproof when data is transmitted and stored over the Internet. We will update these measures as new technology becomes available, as appropriate.

Other Garden Connections Web Sites
This Privacy Policy applies only to this site. The policies of other Web sites operated by Garden Connections may vary because of local customs, practices, or laws or due to circumstances unique to that Web site. Please review the privacy policy of each Web site to determine the privacy policies of that Web site.
