Like most websites, Gardening with Charlie Nardozzi (GWCN) collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. GWCN’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how GWCN’s visitors use its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to GWCN’s websites choose to interact with GWCN in ways that require GWCN to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that GWCN gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, those who engage in transactions with GWCN – by purchasing access to webinars, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, GWCN collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with GWCN. GWCN does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
GWCN may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, GWCN may monitor the most popular blogs on the website or use a spam service to help identify spam. GWCN may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, GWCN does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
GWCN discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on GWCN’s behalf or to provide services available at GWCN’s websites, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using GWCN’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. GWCN will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, GWCN discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when GWCN believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of GWCN, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a GWCN website and have supplied your email address, GWCN may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with GWCN. GWCN takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If GWCN, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that GWCN goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of GWCN may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
GWCN also uses 3rd party vendor remarketing tracking cookies, including the Google Adwords tracking cookie. This means we will continue to show ads to you across the internet, specifically on the Google Content Network (GCN). As always we respect your privacy and are not collecting any identifiable information through the use of Google’s or any other 3rd party remarketing system.
Comments and other content submitted to the website are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives or missed spam, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives and missed spam.
