Privacy Policy & Web Site Terms of Use

AM Conservation Group / NiagaraConservation.com is dedicated to providing our customers with outstanding customer service and uncompromising privacy protection. For this reason, we believe that you should read the privacy policy (""the Policy"") and terms of use that we have adopted to help us provide you with that level of service. Our privacy policy describes the types of information we may gather about you, how we use that information, and the conditions under which we may disclose it to third parties. Our current Policy is effective as of December 2013. Our terms of use establish your rights and obligations as a user of this Web site.

PRIVACY POLICY

APPLICABILITY

This Policy applies only to the Web site of niagaraconservation.com and does not state the policies of any companies, entities, or organizations to which we may link. You should carefully review the privacy policies of those Web sites in order to determine how they treat your personal information.

INFORMATION WE GATHER

We gather both personally identifying and personally non-identifying information about visitors to and users of our Web site, as specified below:

PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

The personally identifying information we collect and retain includes such items of personal information as needed to enable us to contact our customers directly for the business purposes set forth in this Policy, to complete their online transactions, to meet their customer service needs, and to maintain accurate business records. Such items of information may include our customers' first and last names, full street addresses, log-in data, telephone numbers, facsimile numbers, and/or e-mail addresses as may be needed from time to time as we offer new and/or different products and services. We collect that information from our customers when they place orders with us, register for services we may offer, inquire about our products and/or services, or participate in a customer service chat. We may also gather our customers' billing and/or shipping addresses if they differ from their residence or business address previously supplied. By providing us with their personally identifying information, our customers grant us their consent to use and retain that information for the uses specified in this Policy, including the provision of that information to such third-party service providers and others who are necessary to support and process our customers' transactions on our Web site. Such third party processors may include shippers and data management and processing entities. Your personally identifying information will never be collected by us without your knowledge. If you do not want your personally identifying information to be collected and retained by us in this manner and for the purposes described in this Policy, you should not use our Web site.

PERSONALLY NON-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

The personally non-identifying information we collect is generic information we track with respect to customer visits to uses of our Web site, including such information as the number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the areas of the Web site that they favor. We may also collect information about our customers' Internet use. We collect some of this information by using ""Cookies,"" which are small data files that are written to and stored on the hard drives of the computers of the visitors and users of our Web site. Cookies do not read files on the hard drive of the computer on which they reside. Most Internet browsers allow users to establish their own preferences with regard to the use of cookies on their computers, including the ability to erase cookies from their hard drive, block cookies, or have the browser prompt the user to either accept or refuse to store the cookie. If you decline the cookie generated by this Web site, you may continue to use the Web site and place product orders. The data and information we collect with cookies is only reviewed in an aggregated form, which is not personally identifiable. However, it will make your return visit to our site easier by allowing our Web site to recognize your computer.

We may also collect some personally non-identifying information through formatted links on our Web site which helps us keep track of whether those links have been followed to third-party Web sites. We cannot identify specific users who click on links available on our Web site.

A third way in which we collect personally non-identifying information is through the log files located on our Web server, which record the date and time of each visit to our Web site, the visitor's IP (Internet protocol) address, the referring IP address or domain (the prior Web site visited by that user), and the files viewed on our Web site (including HTML pages, graphics, etc.). We use log file information to analyze data in the aggregate to determine the usage of our site. We cannot correlate the log data to identify specific users.

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We use our customers' personally identifying information to fulfill orders, bill for purchased products, allow access to certain restricted areas of our Web site, provide customer service and maintain records of our sales. We may also use it to contact our customers directly for reasons related to their transaction or our products and services. We need to collect our customers' names and addresses so that we can ship their orders and maintain accurate business records with regard to those transactions. We will retain that personally identifying information as necessary to maintain accurate sales and order records and for provision of customer service in relation to your order(s). We may also use e-mail addresses, facsimile numbers, and telephone numbers to contact our customers in relation to their orders or customer service needs.

We use the personally non-identifying information we collect to help us understand your interests and concerns, and therefore to help us make decisions about the types of products and services we should offer. We also use it to customize our customers' return visits to our Web site by storing their preferences, recording information on what Web pages they access or visit, and recording their session information, including such things as the products those customers add to their shopping carts. We cannot use personally non-identifying information to identify or contact individual Web site users.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

AM Conservation Group / NiagaraConservation.com will not sell personally identifying information about any individual customers to third parties for any purpose. We will only disclose personally identifying information to those third party service providers who have agreed to maintain its confidentiality and who need that information in order to provide a service to us in relation to the legitimate business purposes referred herein. For example, we may disclose names and addresses to a third party shipping company in order to deliver products to those customers. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Policy to the contrary, we may also disclose personally identifying information, with or without prior notice to you, when we believe that the law requires it, in response to legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order, at the demand of governmental agencies, to protect our systems or business, to protect other visitors to the Web site, or to respond to an emergency. If you engage in, or we reasonably suspect you are engaging in, any illegal activity we may also disclose your personally identifying information to an appropriate law enforcement agency. We may also make disclosures of your personally identifying information with your affirmative consent.

CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

From time to time, we may collect different personally identifying information or use customer personally identifying information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this Policy. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these changes. We will not use any personally identifying information collected before the effective date of our new Policy or any new purposes specified therein. Only personally identifying information collected from the time of the policy change forward will be used and disclosed in this new manner.
