Privacy

We don’t use the information that you provide to us to do anything other than to send your orders and occasional email updates.  You can opt out of email updates simply by contacting us.  Every mass email that we send includes an unsubscribe link.  We will never share your personal information with third parties.  We hate it when companies do that to us.  Your information is shared only with the following companies that are involved in the billing and fulfillment process:

* If you pay with a credit card, Paypal processes your payment.

* We ship orders through Stamps.com.

* Our mailing list is maintained by MailChimp.

All communications with this web site are encrypted with SSL.

We require a phone number at checkout because we sell seeds internationally and a phone number is required for the customs form.  The phone number is ignored for domestic orders and we will never call you unless you call us first.

This site uses software provided by WordPress, WooCommerce, Mediawiki, and others.  These applications use cookies.  Although cookies sometimes have a bad reputation, they are simply small files that are stored on your computer that contain information about how you use the site.  Some cookies allow you to access the site without logging in again.  Some allow your browser to remember the contents of your shopping cart.  They cannot be used to collect information about you (for the information to be placed in the cookie, you must have already given it to us) and third parties cannot access the cookies.  You can delete or disable cookies from your web browser, but the site may not work as well if you do.

When you post in our forums or our wiki, you give us a non-exclusive license to the content that you post in perpetuity.  This is not because we want to use your words or images in any other form, but because we don’t want to deal with the hassle of going back to selectively remove your content from the forums, the wiki, our backups, caches, etc.
