Your Privacy & Security

Early's Farm & Garden Centre is Strongly Committed to Protecting Your Privacy
We follow a simple, common sense principle: we ask for only the information we need to complete the service you have requested. The information that you provide is to ensure that you have a convenient shopping experience online and that we are meeting your needs. We respect our shoppers' concerns about providing information and feel it is your right to know why we gather information, how we use it and what your options are. The privacy of this information is maintained and protected using security technologies and policies that prevent unauthorized usage of your information.

What Information We Collect and How It Is Used
When an order is processed it is necessary that we collect your name, mailing address, E-mail address, and payment information. This information is gathered to provide you the highest quality of service, inform you of opportunities we think will be of interest, and to understand your needs. This information will only be used for internal marketing purposes and is not shared with outside parties without first posting notification on our Web site of this change. Shall you wish to opt out of our contact service please notify us by E-mail or postal mail. Shall a vendor or supplier be involved in the online purchase process they will only be given the absolute necessary information to complete their role.

In addition to the information that you voluntarily provide to us, our system automatically gathers certain statistical information like numbers and frequency of visitors. Our server cannot identify you as a person but only as a computer and this data, not your name, may from time to time be used in conjunction with outside parties for statistical resources. This information is studied to help us improve products and services, customer service, online operations, and our Web site in general.

Early's Farm & Garden Centre does not currently sell or rent any customer data, server logs, or personal information to any other companies or organizations. We shall, if required to do so only by law disclose your personal information to the necessary parties.

Special Attention to Children On Our Web Site
Early's Farm & Garden Centre encourages parents to take an active role in their child's use of the Internet.

How Can I Further Protect Myself
The Internet does present a vast and open market, similar to a very large shopping mall. Therefore you need to take the same safety measures with electronic shopping as you would in the 'physical' world. Seek Web sites that display reputable security symbols and NEVER give your credit card information to anyone who contacts you via E-mail or Instant Message.

The door at the Early's Farm & Garden Centre Online Store is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. If you have any questions or concerns about Your Privacy or Your Security please contact us by E-mail at sales@earlysgarden.com.
