Does the Site Collect ‘Cookies’?
Your web browser, and even some advertisements on the Site, may generate or otherwise have access to and store your browsing information separate from the collection activities of the Site (e.g., “cookies”). The Site does not store or track cookies or other trackers, however. If you are concerned about these collection activities, we strongly suggest you review your security settings in your internet browser.
How Is Non-Anonymous or Personal Information Handled?
Non-Anonymous Information is personal Information that may identify you, either directly or indirectly, such as your name, street address, email address, or phone number. We will only collect Personal Information you provide us voluntarily. We do not engage in automatic, passive collection of Personal Information. For instance, if you register for an account on the Site, We will keep and store the Personal Information you enter. If Anonymous Information is directly or indirectly associated with Personal Information, the Anonymous Information is treated as Personal Information.
How Is Your Information Used?
Anonymous Information is used to monitor web traffic to the Site so that We can provide you with the best possible experience. For example, Anonymous Information allows Us track and monitor web traffic for the purposes of, among other things, scheduling website maintenance and configuring our servers to better handle high traffic periods. We mostly use your Anonymous Information to ensure the Site is up and running smoothly so you can access your favorite content during low traffic periods.
Your Personal Information can be used to customize your experience on the Site. For example, We may use this information to verify your account credentials, send you our newsletter (if you choose to subscribe), allow you to access Member’s Corner features such as uploading photos and sending questions to our gardening experts, or access to the Site’s Magazine, or to request free samples of gardening products. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IS STRICTLY FOR INTERNAL USE BY BLOOMINGTON BRANDS. We will never sell, share, or otherwise abuse your Personal Information.
While we strive to maintain reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect your information, no information system can be 100% secure. We make reasonable efforts to secure your account information pages and your Personal Information such that they can be accessed only by our authorized personnel or by logging in with your username and password. We cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information, however. Moreover, we cannot be responsible for information you transmit over networks that neither we nor our service providers control, or information that you choose to publicly disclose. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords or other account information.
