COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Lawn Nation collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. Lawn Nation also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Lawn Nation. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Lawn Nation for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Lawn Nation Web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Lawn Nation public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Lawn Nation does not read any of your private online communications.
Lawn Nation encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from Lawn Nation so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. Lawn Nation is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Lawn Nation and Lawn Nation family of Web sites.
USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Lawn Nation collects and uses your personal information to operate the Lawn Nation Web site and deliver the services you have requested. Lawn Nation also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Lawn Nation and its affiliates. Lawn Nation may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Lawn Nation does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Lawn Nation may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Lawn Nation may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Lawn Nation, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Lawn Nation does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Lawn Nation keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Lawn Nation, in order to determine what Lawn Nation services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Lawn Nation to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Lawn Nation Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Lawn Nation or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Lawn Nation; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Lawn Nation, or the public.
The Lawn Nation Web site uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Lawn Nation pages, or register with Lawn Nation site or services, a cookie helps Lawn Nation to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Lawn Nation Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Lawn Nation features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Lawn Nation services or Web sites you visit.
The DoubleClick cookie is used by Google in the ads served on the websites of its partners, such as websites displaying AdSense ads or participating in Google certified ad networks. When users visit a partner’s website and either view or click on an ad, a cookie may be dropped on that end user’s browser.
If you have not opted out of third-party ad serving then the cookies of other third-party vendors or ad networks may also be used to serve ads to you on Lawn Nation and/or other Web sites on the Internet.
Like many other Web sites, Lawn Nation makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Lawn Nation secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Lawn Nation secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
