Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Hills Florist we have a few fundamental principles:

Hills Florist operates the website Hills Florist.com. It is Hills Florist’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. We will only collect information to the extent permissible by prevailing law and pursuant to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Creative Commons License Note, our privacy policy has been derived from the privacy policy of the generous team at Wordpress.com, who have shared their privacy policy under a Creative Commons Sharealike license.

This text is also shared under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, and we would direct you to the original if you would like to reuse the content you read here.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Hills Florist collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Hills Florist’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Hills Florist’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Hills Florist may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Hills Florist also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Hills Florist does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Hills Florist’s website choose to interact with Hills Florist in ways that require Hills Florist to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Hills Florist gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a comment at our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Hills Florist are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Hills Florist collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Hills Florist. Hills Florist does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Hills Florist may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Hills Florist may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Hills Florist does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Hills Florist discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Hills Florist’s behalf or to provide services available at Hills Florist’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Hills Florist’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Hills Florist will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Hills Florist discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Hills Florist believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Hills Florist, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Hills Florist and have supplied your email address, Hills Florist may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Hills Florist and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Hills Florist takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
