Use of information
We will not collect any information about individuals, except where it is specifically and knowingly provided by them. Examples of such information are:
- Telephone Number
- Email address
The information collected will be used to process orders or allocate customer benefits on your behalf. Additionally, we will look at the products you buy, together with information regarding the way you viewed our site, obtained by our Cookie (see below). We will use this information for market research and statistical analysis, and to enable us to send you information about products and services that you may be interested in. On the website we will use this information to show you products, offers and information that we hope you'll find interesting and relevant and to help us to develop the site to make shopping easier in the future. The Cookie will only reveal details about the way you look at our site. Unless you have not agreed to this, information may be sent via email, post or via the telephone.
Whatever choice you make regarding the receipt of marketing information here will not affect the decision you made regarding more ‘traditional’ forms of marketing, for example a decision to receive letters from other parts of The Plantbase Store or to take part in targeted offers in-store. If you wish to amend your ‘traditional’ response please phone 020 8556 8828.
The plantbase store [theplantbasestore.com] use a feature of your Internet Web Browser called a ‘Cookie’ on their sites. A Cookie is a very small text file that your Web Browser places on your computer's hard disc, which allows us to help you get the best out of your visit to the site. A ‘Cookie’ can be thought of as an identification card which tells a website when you have returned.
Our ‘Cookies’ are only used to store basic information about your order. They do not store password or credit card information.
The plantbase store [theplantbasestore.com] uses ‘Cookies’ to make accessing the site more convenient as you won't need to remember your user number. 'Cookies' in conjunction with registration details will allow us to welcome you by name and over time personalise the site content to reflect your preferences.
For security reasons you will still need to enter your password and where more than one user uses the same machine it will not be possible to offer this service. The theplantbasestore.com ‘Cookie’ will remain on your hard disk indefinitely.
It is possible to view our site without providing any personal details. However, without registering your details you will need to re-enter your details each time you order. We will also not be able to inform you about the special offers available on the site.
You can set your Browser to accept or reject all (or certain) ‘Cookies’. You can also set your Browser to alert you each time a ‘Cookie’ is presented to your computer. You can delete ‘Cookies’ that have been stored on your computer.
However, if you prevent us from placing ‘Cookies’ on your computer during your visit, or subsequently delete the ‘Cookie’ from your computer, then it will not be possible to use the site effectively because the system relies on the ‘Cookie’ to keep track of the current order and your session ID.
Please note that we do not use ‘Cookies’ to retrieve personal information about you from your computer, unless the information has been knowingly and willingly been provided by you.
