Here are our policies for handling information:
When You Visit Our Website
If you do nothing during your visit except browse through our website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:
1. The Internet domain (for example, "xcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university's domain) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our website;
2. The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
3. The date and time you access our site;
4. The pages you visit; and
5. If you linked to thegardencentergroup.com from another website, the address of that website.
We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors - to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors are using. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits.
If You're In Our Email Database
If you choose to provide us with personal information by filling out our "contact us" form, or if you email to one of the team members listed on our website, we use that information to respond to your message. If you are already a client or associate of Hewitt's Garden Centers, we exercise the same constraints in communication with you. In addition, we may use the information you supply us to create an information database For Our Use Only. Under no circumstances will we supply the information in that database to a third party. In fact, if we select you to receive an informational email from us, we will give you the opportunity to unsubscribe from the list.
