For more information as to why we collect personal information, please see the section below entitled: “How do we use your personal information?”
Your personal information also allows us to communicate with you about special offers, promotions, and other marketing programs and news that may be of interest to you.

For your convenience, we have provided a summary description of each of these circumstances below.
Information automatically collected when you visit our websites
When you visit our websites, we automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. For example, we may receive and collect: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the date and time you access our websites; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our sites.

Information collected using cookies
Browsers are typically set to create cookies automatically. You can choose to have your browser notify you when cookies are being written to your computer or accessed, or you can disable cookies entirely. If you disable cookies, however, you will not be able to place items in a Truebotanica.com shopping cart, and therefore you will not be able to place an order with us online. Also, by not using cookies, some True Botanica website features and services may not function properly.
Site Analytics: We work with site analytics software to help us better understand how you use our website and respond to our electronic newsletter. This software allows us to collect information that will tell us things like which search engine referred you to our website, how you navigated to our website, and what traffic is driven by banner ads and emails. The majority of this information is grouped statistics and not individual tracking information. This information will help us to better serve you and provide you with more personalized information and product offerings.
Information collected using pixel tags or clear GIFs
To help us understand the effectiveness of certain of our communications and marketing efforts, we may use “message format” and “message open” sensing technologies that use pixel tags or clear GIFs (which are also called web beacons). These technologies allow us to know if your e-mail program is able to accept HTML e-mails and, if it is, to: (1) send you e-mails in that format; and (2) determine if you have opened our e-mail messages.
Information collected from outside sources
We may periodically collect personal information and other information about you from business partners, contractors and other third parties.
