How we gather information from users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site.
Like most websites, GiveAndGarden.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technologies to recognize you and collect information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your username and password, thereby allowing you to avoid re-entering. The cookie technology may also help control the number of times you are exposed to a particular advertisement while visiting our site.
Considering our increased usage of additional technology, we may also gather information through other means.
In certain cases, you may choose not to provide us with information. You may do so by setting your browser to reject or block cookies. Please be advised that if you do block or reject cookies, you may be unable to access certain portions of our website. You may also be asked to re-enter your user name and password. Further, we may not be able to customize our website’s features according to your preferences.
Social Media Pages
Aggregated Information refers to information that does not personally identify you. Such information may include your IP address, your Internet service provider and your location, without limitation. Aggregated information may be used for a variety of reasons. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or which features are most attractive).
Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information and such Aggregated Information does not allow for your individual identification.
