Welcome to the Web site of Nature's Farmacy (“Nature's Farmacy”)

Nature's Farmacy respects your privacy and is committed to adhering to federal and state privacy laws and industry guidelines in order to protect you and your identity.  This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we handle the personal information that you provide to us on this site (“Web Site”) and does not apply to information we collect in any other fashion, or to information collected on any other Nature's Farmacy, affiliate or third party sites that may be accessible from here.

After reading this Privacy Policy, which is incorporated into and is a part of the Web Site’s Terms of Use, you will know:

  • What information Nature's Farmacy collects from you
  • How Nature's Farmacy uses your information
  • What choices you have about how Nature's Farmacy treats your information
  • How Nature's Farmacy protects your privacy
  • What Nature's Farmacy does about children under 13 visiting the Web Site
  • How you can contact Nature's Farmacy

Please be sure to read this Privacy Policy before using the Web Site or submitting information to us.  Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and your continued use of the Web Site is acceptance of such changes, so please check this area periodically for updates to this Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION NATURE'S FARMACY COLLECTS FROM YOU

Active Information Collection

Like many other Web sites, we actively collect information from our visitors both by asking specific questions on the Web Site and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e‑mail.  Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, business name, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc.).  Also, if you purchase products from us, you may be required to provide financial information.

When you visit the Web Site, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily.  If any features of the Web Site require registration, you may be asked for both personal and demographic information, most of which will be required in order to complete the registration.  We will inform you which information is optional.  If you opt not to register, you still can visit the Web Site but you will not be able to access those features restricted to registered users.

Nature's Farmacy does not have control over the privacy policies applied by any other party to which you may disclose information.  Third party sites that are linked to from the Web Site are not under the control of Nature's Farmacy and we are not responsible for their content or privacy policies.  If you would like information on any other party’s privacy policy, you should contact that party directly, and we encourage you to do so.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a Web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection.  Like most Web site operators, we may track IP addresses, use both session and persistent cookies, and assign Internet tags.  Our system also may automatically gather information about the areas you visit on this site and collect operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems, Internet service providers and the domain name of the Web Site from which you linked to our site.

We passively collect information to understand what areas of the Web Site are most popular, which areas may require improvement and what technologies are being used by our visitors.  This information helps us to update and improve the Web Site.  We also use this information for security purposes, to help us detect and block security breaches.

When you view the Web Site we may store a cookie on your computer to help us implement interactive features and better match your experience on the Web Site to your interests and preferences.  You may have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline all cookies if you prefer. Alternatively, you may be able to modify your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis. If you choose to decline cookies, however, that may hinder performance and negatively impact your experience with the Web Site.  Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.

Nature's Farmacy does not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information.

HOW NATURE'S FARMACY USES YOUR INFORMATION

Nature's Farmacy uses your personal information to enhance the operation of the Web Site and allow you to use all of its features.

We use your contact information (billing, shipping and e-mail addresses) and financial information only for the purposes for which you supplied it to us and to send you related notices and materials and respond to your comments or requests for information. We will not use it to send you promotional materials if you opt-out of receiving such materials.  For certain features, we may ask you to verify your location, to help us provide you with an appropriate response or information for that location.  We may also enhance or merge personally identifiable information with data obtained from third parties for similar purposes.

From time to time, we may provide aggregate statistics about users, sales, online traffic patterns and related information to reputable third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information.  We also will disclose any information that we are required to disclose by law or by an appropriate government authority.

CHOICES YOU HAVE ABOUT HOW NATURE'S FARMACY USES YOUR INFORMATION

If you have registered with the Web Site, you may view and modify your personal profile through the Web Site.  You also may contact us using the contact information at the end of this Privacy Policy to request access to or the correction of any personal information that you have provided to us.  Should you elect to have your personally identifiable information deleted from our promotional and Web Site databases, we will delete your user account and only retain certain information for legal, audit, statistical and similar business purposes.

If you do not wish us to collect cookies, you may set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent.  If you do so, please note that some parts of this site may then be inaccessible or not function properly.

Also, you may opt out of having your e-mail address used for promotional purposes by Nature's Farmacy.  This opt out does not apply to information provided to Nature's Farmacy as a result of a product purchase, warranty registration, product service experience or other transactions.  If you no longer wish to receive information or promotional materials from us by e‑mail you may opt out of receiving these communications through the method described in such e-mails.

You should review this Privacy Policy carefully, because if you do not agree with our practices, your ultimate choice is not to use the Web Site.  Remember, by using any part of the Web Site, you accept and agree to our privacy practices.  If we update this Privacy Policy, your continued use of the Web Site (following the posting of the revised Privacy Policy) means that you accept and agree to the terms of the revised Privacy Policy.

HOW NATURE'S FARMACY PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION

We have implemented commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you.  If you have access to password-protected features, never share your password with anyone else, notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached, and remember to log off of this site before you leave your computer.  We further urge you to be careful about giving out personal information in any public area of this site, such as a product review forum.  When you provide information in these areas you do so at your own risk.  The information you share may be viewed by any user of this site.

This site may contain links to other Web sites operated by third parties that may be of interest to you.  We cannot control these third party sites, which may collect personal information from you.  When you follow a link and leave this site, you do so at your own risk.

WHAT NATURE'S FARMACY DOES ABOUT CHILDREN VISITING THE WEB SITE

The Web Site is not intended for children under 13 years of age and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, please do not register, make any purchases or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address.  If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. Please let us know if you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13.
