Privacy & Security
Your details are safe at all times.
The Organic Gardening Catalogue, Garden Organic, and Chase Organics Ltd are 100% committed to respecting your personal privacy and protecting information about yourself.
The following notes explain how we collect, process and protect email and website visitor information and any personal information.
Where any personal identifiable information is collected, every effort is made to ensure the security of this data. We do not pass this information on to any other company, organisation or person, except where necessary to deliver your order. Also, where personal identifiable information is collected the opportunity to decline from further correspondence is always presented.
What data do we collect and how do we use it?
We collect non-personal information on general website usage; how people arrive at and navigate the web site, and how visitors use the pages offered. This information provides essential feedback to us showing the effectiveness of our online marketing. This information is not directly correlated against individuals.
We also collect personal identifiable information, namely address details and email addresses. We may also ask about your personal interests and demographical information such as age and gender. In some cases this information may be used to tailor services to you ensuring that you only get information about products and services that you may be interested in.
In some cases we collect live information based on responses to the website, which feeds back into the website viewing experience enhancing the way information is presented, this information is not retained after a particular browsing session.
Consent and opt in/out
We only ever carry out email campaigns to consented individuals. We believe the ability to opt-out is a basic internet right and each individual email sent out gives recipients the chance to easily opt out of future marketing and be removed from that particular list.
Tell-a-friend email contains a disclaimer notifying the individual of the purpose of the email and limited processing of their email address. The tell-a-friend information is NOT automatically added to a consent e-marketing list.
We adhere to industry standard data security measures regarding any personal identifiable information. We have a set of security policies to ensure the integrity of the data, and we also limit access to that information. Our web servers also employ a high degree of security, though in the event of any malicious and forceful attack we offer no implied warranty to the integrity of your information, but rest assured that we monitor our server security regularly to prevent such a breach.
