(possibly adapted from one of them fancy big company websites)

(referred in this Privacy Policy as the "Company", “we”, or simply “finest ever distributors of mulch and stuff”, respects the privacy of every individual who visits our website (and that even of those who don’t). This Privacy Policy ("Policy") outlines the information the Company may collect from visitors to our website and how we may use and disclose that information (referred to sometimes as “info” or “stuff”.

We encourage you to read this Policy before using any of our websites, particularly if you need help getting to sleep. Your use of a website of the Company signifies that you agree with all terms of this Policy. Please do not use our websites if you disagree with any part of this Policy.

What kinda stuff do we collect and why?
The Company may collect personal information about you (such as your name, postal address, telephone number, date of birth, Zodiac sign, company name and email address) that you provide voluntarily. You mostly are not required to register or provide personal stuff in order to access our websites, although certain areas of our websites may require registration. In addition, if you choose to contact us to ask a question we will collect your personal information (often on some very old computers) so that we can respond to your question or provide future information or wise advice.

The Company may collect personal information online for all legal purposes, which include, but are not limited to:

  • On-line Surveys. The Company may conduct on-line surveys and other activities that may require online registration. Persons wishing to participate in those activities are asked to provide certain personal information. Some of the information requested for this purpose is optional, but other information, such as email address, is mandatory because it may be needed distribute promotions (such as coupons). Also, some activities may require the selection of a user ID and password by the participating individual. 
  • "Contact Us" and Comment Features. The Company encourages visitors to its website to contact us with questions and comments. Email addresses and other information of persons using these features may be collected in order to facilitate our responses to those inquiries.

In connection with those purchases, customers may be asked to submit personal information, name, address, telephone number and email address, that is required to complete the transaction.

The Company also may offer you the opportunity to provide you with email updates and “member” announcements concerning our products and special promotions. Personal information you have provided to the Company may be used to facilitate those communications.
  • When do we disclose the personal info we collect?

Except as provided herein (and usually not at all), the Company will not sell, rent or otherwise disclose personal information about you to unaffiliated third parties. Even fourth or fifth parties don’t get any of that.
We may (but mostly won’t) disclose personal information you have provided through our websites to persons or companies that we retain to carry out promotions and other activities for which you have registered or in which you have otherwise asked to participate. We also will disclose personal information if required by law, including compliance with warrants, subpoenas or other legal process. Hey, we gotta.

The Company requires persons and companies to which it discloses personal information to restrict their use of such information to the purposes for which it has been provided by the Company and not to disclose that information to others. The Company cannot be responsible, however, for any damages caused by the failure of unaffiliated third parties to honor their privacy obligations to the Company. Similarly, the Company is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites that are linked to our websites. They may not be as scrupulous as we are and that just stinks.

In addition to these limited disclosures of personal info, the Company may provide its affiliates or unaffiliated third parties with aggregate information about visitors to our sites. For example, we might disclose the median ages of visitors to our websites, or the numbers of visitors to our websites that come from different geographic areas, or some other stuff that we someday figure out. Such aggregate information will not include information of any individual visitors to our websites.

The Company may provide personal and other information to a purchaser or successor entity in connection with the sale of the Company, a subsidiary or line of business associated with the Company, or substantially all of the assets of the Company or one of its subsidiaries, affiliates or lines of business. You know, just in case we have to bail.

Special Note for Parents
The Company takes seriously its obligations under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act concerning the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13. The Company's websites are not targeted to children. The Company does not knowingly accept personal information from children under the age of 13, does not want such information, and hope we never get any.

Parents should be aware that information that is voluntarily given by children or others in chat sessions, email exchanges, bulletin boards or the like may be used by other, possibly nefarious, parties to generate unsolicited email or other contacts. The Company encourages all parents to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of the Internet. Like the song says, “Teach your children well.”
How do we protect your personal info?

The Company takes measures to prevent unauthorized intrusion to its websites and the alteration, acquisition or misuse of personal information by unauthorized persons. However, the Company cautions visitors to its websites that no network, including the Internet, is entirely secure.

What other stuff do we collect?
When you access and interact with one of our websites, we may collect certain information often referred to as "clickstream data."

Also, where you have previously identified yourself in the registration process as affiliated with a particular business or organization, we may, if we ever figure out how, record the fact that a representative of your business or organization visited the site, along with other clickstream data concerning that visit. Clickstream data will not be used to identify you personally and will not be associated or correlated with any site visitor in a personally-identifiable manner, even if we figure out how to do it.
