1. Information Collected
(1) In the course of operating the West Grow Farms Services, we may collect two types of information about our users: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.
(2) “Personal Information” is personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, e-mail address, birth date, and gender. Personal Information is collected by us when you choose to provide it to us when registering for a West Grow Farms Service, such as when you choose to subscribe to a West Grow Farms Service, enter a West Grow Farms promotion, or choose to receive a West Grow Farms newsletter. In addition, if you choose to contact any of our customer service representatives, we may keep a record of that correspondence so that we may fully address the subject matter. We may also receive Personal Information from our business partners and other third parties, provided that such third parties confirm to us that you have permitted them to share such information.
(3) Business contact information such as the name, title, business address, e-mail address or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is not considered Personal Information.
(4) “Non-Personal Information” is information of an anonymous nature, such as an Internet Protocol Address (“IP Address”), the domain used to access a West Grow Farms Service, and the type and version of browser or operating system being used. Aggregate information, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g., average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors, and average time spent on a West Grow Farms Service, is also considered Non-Personal Information.
(5) Non-Personal Information is collected or derived by us in the course of operating the West Grow Farms Services. For example, our Web servers may automatically collect Non-Personal Information which is provided through your browser or stored on a Cookie or through a Web Beacon when you choose to visit a West Grow Farms Service. Non-Personal Information is used by West Grow Farms for statistical purposes.

(a) Providing you with the West Grow Farms Services and information you have requested from us, including your use of the West Grow Farms Sites. We may from time to time use your Personal Information to contact you about changes, enhancements or similar notices related to the West Grow Farms Services;
(b) If you indicated that you were interested in receiving offers or information from West Grow Farms or certain of our selected sponsors or advertisers, West Grow Farms or such sponsors or advertisers may send you e-mail materials and other mailings about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you.

4. Links to Other Sites and Advertisements
(2) In certain areas, such as when you provide credit card information to us, we work to help protect the security of your credit card information during transmission by using industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) encryption technology.
(3) You can help protect the security of your Personal Information as well. For instance, never give out your password, since this is what is used to access your Account or Registration Information. Also remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you finish using a West Grow Farms Service or surfing the Web so that other people using the same computer won’t have access to your information.
