1.2 Third party advertisers on Specialized Landscape Company's site.
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads (using methods that include Pixel Tags and Clear Gifs) when you visit our Web site. Our third-party advertising company may separately place or recognize a cookie file on your browser in the course of delivering advertisements to this Site.

2. How information collected by Specialized Landscape Company is used.
3. Communications from Specialized Landscape Company.
Receipt and Item Shipped Emails. We send an email to the email address associated with the account a user has provided to confirm the receipt of an order as well as to notify the customer when we ship the order. This process is designed to be a courtesy message for our customers. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive any future types of communications. Please see our opt-out options below.
Opting out. Users are provided an opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to the services they request for order at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our order form has an 'opt-out' mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don't want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from Specialized Landscape Company and its partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email us at Chris@specializedlandscape.com
4. Underage customers.
The Specialized Landscape Company site is not intended for use by anyone under the age of thirteen (13), and any individual under such age should not provide Specialized Landscape Company with personally identifiable information. Specialized Landscape Company does not knowingly contact, market to, or solicit, collect or use personally identifiable information from or about any individual under the age of thirteen (13). It is possible that by fraud or deception we may receive information pertaining to children under thirteen (13). If we are notified of that Specialized Landscape Company has personal information regarding a person under the age of thirteen (13), as soon as we reasonably verify the information, we will either obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify Specialized Landscape Company of our receipt of information by children under 18, please do so by emailing us at: Chris@specializedlandscape.com.
5. Linking to third-party websites.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
6. Our privacy practices.
When users submit sensitive information via the website, the information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with encryption software. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing.'While we use encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also take efforts to protect user-information off-line. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. In addition, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked door.
In order to maximize protection of your information, Specialized Landscape Company uses state-of-the-art technology to protect your data from use, misuse, or alteration by unauthorized third parties. Currently, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to protect your data and secure your transactions. SSL encrypts all your personal information, including your credit card number, name, and address, as it is transmitted over the Internet. Of course, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure, and Specialized Landscape Company does not warrant that your information will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data on or through the use of Specialized Landscape Company is at your own risk.
