Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Survival Seeds 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 and pretty much everything else we can collect legally. Survival Seeds purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Survival Seeds visitors use its website. From time to time, Survival Seeds may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Survival Seeds also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Survival Seeds 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. Please be aware that Survival Seeds cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, including those to which we link or whose products or services we reference, or sites that we work with. We encourage you to read the terms of use and privacy statements of each Web site you visit.
