At Plant Products Inc. we value the privacy of our customers and are committed to protecting personal information. This Privacy Policy explains the practices and policies we follow when interacting with your personal information: why it is collected, how it is collected, how we use it, and how we protect it.

1. Application of Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to all of the information practices of Plant Products and its current and future affiliated companies (collectively, "Plant Products"). It applies to all of Plant Products' business operations, products and services, including:

TThe Plant Products Website and Plant Products email newsletters may contain links to third party websites, for whose information practices Plant Products is not responsible. When leaving the Plant Products Website or Plant Products email newsletters, please read the privacy policy applicable to the website to which any link is being made. Plant Products is in no way responsible for the privacy practices of other websites and third parties.
Plant Products encourages all users of its website to take an active role in protecting their own computers and information, both in engaging our services and it their other online activities. Plant Products is not responsible for the use by third parties and Plant Products employees who have both lawfully and unlawfully obtained individual's data from Plant Products' Website or database.

2. Modification of Privacy Policy

Plant Products reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Such changes, modifications, additions, or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which will be given by posting the revised Privacy Policy on this page. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy periodically and to be aware of any modifications. Your continued use of our site after any such modifications will constitute: (a) your acknowledgment of any modified Privacy Policy; and (b) your agreement to abide and be bound by any modified Policy.

3. Personal Information.

Personal information is all information that is identifiable to an individual or information that permits an individual to be identified. This includes, but is not limited to, the individual's name, home address, IP address, email address, and telephone number. Personal information does not include business contact information, such as name, title, business address and business telephone number when used for business communications. It also does not include non-identifying aggregate information collected on things such as website traffic volume.

4. Non-Personal Information.

Non-personal information may also be collected automatically from the Plant Products Website in the form of web logs. The web logs are used to analyze anonymous behavior on the Plant Products Website for the purposes of improving Plant Products' products and services. On occasion aggregate statistics will be provided to reputable third-party companies, but these statistics will contain no personally identifiable information.

5. Collection of Personal Information.

Personal information will be collected, used, stored and disclosed by Plant Products, electronically or otherwise, only with the knowledge and consent of the individual to whom it relates. We typically collect your personal information with your consent when you fill out our web registration form, call a sales or support associate, or purchase our products and services. At times, however, personal information is obtained from other sources, such as government bodies or third parties, but only as permitted by law. As appropriate, Plant Products will ask for specific consent to collect, use, store and disclose personal information. This may be in writing or orally. In some cases, consent can be implied through an individual relationship or conduct with Plant Products.

The purpose of collecting personal information will be expressly stated by Plant Products whenever solicited, and will not be used for purposes other than those stated. Where the purpose for the collection of personal information is unclear, you can ask the Plant Products representative with whom you are dealing to provide an explanation of the purpose for the data collection.

Personal information, other than an IP address, will never be collected automatically. Internet use requires information exchange between the website host and the visitor; such information generally cannot identify an individual and falls outside the scope of personal information. The notable exception is a visitor's IP address. An IP address cannot directly identify an individual and Plant Products will not attempt to link an automatically collected IP address to an individual, except as may be required or permitted by law. Each visitor's IP address will otherwise be treated as personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
