The Smallest Seed takes your privacy very seriously. The Smallest Seed does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers.
At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
The Smallest Seed takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
The Smallest Seed uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To make purchases from the Smallest Seed website you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.
You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser like Safari.
The Smallest Seed has safeguards in place to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is used. Naturally, you always have the right to access and correct the personal information you have provided. You can help us ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by changing the information in your account settings. You can also request a copy of your personal information, your product registration history, and your interactions with our sales and support agents by contacting us at the email address below.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If a child under 13 submits personal information to The Smallest Seed and we learn that that personal information is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.
Cookies and other technologies
If, however, you prefer not to enable cookies, please go to disable them from your browser preferences. Please note that certain features of the The Smallest Seed website will not be available once cookies are disabled.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. The Smallest Seed will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.
In some of our email messages we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Smallest Seed website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.
In addition we use pixel tags — tiny graphic images — to tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site.
Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to ensure that we’re sending only messages that are of interest to our customers. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a customer. We store all of this information in a secure database located in the United States.
The Smallest Seed abides by the safe harbor framework set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information collected from the European Union. The following link provides more information about the U.S. Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Program. The Smallest Seed’s website has links to the sites of other organizations. The Smallest Seed is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
We believe mentoring and support are keys to helping each individual we support succeed. At all phases our partners are intimately involved with providing encouragement and guidance to those we work with. Last Updated April 9, 20012.
