If you follow us through a social media platform (Facebook, Instagram, Google+ or Pinterest) then we will be using it to keep you updated about this website. We may post relevant plant related information or links that we believe our followers would find of interest.
If at any time you wish to "unfollow" us or want to know how the social media site itself handles your privacy then you should refer to the social media platform's "help" sections.
If you post spam related links or offensive content we will delete you. In return we promise not to do either of these things to you.
Disqus does not moderate the comments or the people who use it, however we do. If you post spam related links or offensive content we will delete your comments and potentially block you. In return we promise not to do either of these things to you.
Any website which we directly link to outside of the www.ourhouseplants.com domain is done so in good faith that we are directing you some where worthwhile and "safe". However we are not able to take responsibly if that website has hidden unscrupulous intent. If you let us know however we will look into removing the link.
We can only gather personal identifiable information about you, such as your name and e-mail address, through direct contact. This would be from email contact or on Social Media. For example if you used our Contact Form to send us a message we would then know your name and e-mail address, which is needed in order for us to provide a response.
We do not offer a mailing list, so we have no reason to store personal identifiable information such as your name / e-mail address for prolonged periods.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties any personally identifiable information. However we may release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.
