The Scotts Company takes your privacy seriously and is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Because we do gather certain types of information from visitors to our sites, we have developed a privacy statement to help you understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of that information.
The Scotts Company respects the privacy of individuals who visit our Website, send us email, or participate in feature/ services we offer online. Accordingly, our policy regarding online privacy has been developed using the following guiding principles:
Non-Personally Identifiable Data : Any time you visit a Scotts Website, we may gather certain non-personally identifiable information regarding the means you use to access our site. This information may include the type and version of your browser, your service provider, your IP address, and any search engine you may have used to locate the site. We use this information to help diagnose problems with our server, administer the Website, and compile broad statistical data. In addition, The Scotts Company gathers certain navigational information about where you go on our Websites. This information enables us to determine which areas of the Website are most frequently visited and helps us tailor the sites to the needs and interests of our online visitors. In addition, this tracking data may be used to tailor information presented to you on our sites based on your previous use of the sites and your interests in particular topics.
Scotts may send authorised communications to you on the basis of the information you provide to us through e-mail or regular mail. We will not contact you by telephone, fax, or other means unless you have explicitly requested us to contact you in that manner. You may also opt out of e-mail and regular mail communications from us at any time (see "Opt out Procedures" below)
Scotts understands the importance of your privacy. We collect and maintain the personal information of our consumers for the use of The Scotts Company and its subsidiaries. We do not sell, rent or trade consumer information to third parties, other than as described below, and never without your consent.
Business Partners: The Scotts Company may partner with select retailers and other companies at various times to provide expanded services to our site visitors. As part of such relationship, Scotts may share with these companies the use of certain interactive Website functions (e.g., the e-mail Reminder Service). Information provided by site visitors through the use of such interactive functions may be available to both The Scotts Company and its partners.
Agents: Scotts may use other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include administering e-mail services and running special promotions. Such parties only have access to the personal information needed to perform these functions and may not use or store the information for any other purpose. Subscribers or site visitors will never receive unsolicited email messages from agents working on our behalf.
Business Transfers: In the event that Scotts sells or transfers a particular portion of its business assets, consumer information may be one of the business assets transferred as part of the transaction. If substantially all of the assets of Scotts Company are required, consumer information may be transferred as part of the acquisition.
Compliance with Law/ Safety: Scotts may disclose specific personal information based on a good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to comply with or conform to the law that such disclosure is necessary to protect the users of our Websites, the sites themselves or the public.
Children under the age of 16 are welcome to use The Scotts Company Websites. However, we will ask that a registrant under the age of 16 obtain the approval of a parent or guardian before they become fully registered with one of our Websites.
The Scotts Company Websites may make chat rooms, forums, message boards and/ or news groups available to its users at various times. Please remember that, unless otherwise stated, any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information in these areas.
You may always opt out of receiving future communications from The Scotts Company. Our sites allow users to opt out for receiving such communications at the point where personal information is requested, or through other means as identified.
