Information We Collect
When someone visits our Web site, our Web server automatically recognizes the visitor's domain name/IP address, operating system, and browser type. We use this information to generate statistics and reports about site traffic in order to help us design our website to be as universally compatible as possible. It is not possible for us to gather personal information from domain name/IP address information.
When someone places an order or signs up for our mailing list, we only obtain the personal information necessary for the delivery of our product and receipt of payment, processing authorized returns, or for contacting that person when necessary. If you purchase by credit card, we provide MasterCard® or Visa®, which ever applies, with the information necessary to verify and authorize your transaction. We gather and store such information off line and prefer to deal with payment methods off line for maximum security.
On rare occasions, we may disclose specific information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, or when required by law to do so. We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation. We do not provide information to these agencies or companies for marketing or commercial purposes.
With those exceptions, the information we collect will not be shared, sold, given or in any other manner be passed on to anyone for any purpose!
How We Use Email
When you provide us your email address, we may send you emails necessary to process your order or respond to a request. For example, after you place an order at theribbongardner.com, you will receive an automated email order confirmation and, in most cases, a subsequent email confirming items in stock and an exact order total including freight. We may also send you an occasional email relating to our Newsletter or alerting you to something we feel would be of special interest. If at any time you wish to be removed from our “mailing list”, please let us know.
