Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only collect and have access to information that you voluntarily give us via email, the Phytback.com website, or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order, or to respond to a law enforcement demand.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us, or cancel your membership to Phytback.com at any time.
You can do the following at any time by logging into your membership account at Phytback.com:

We take many precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website or the Phytback.com application, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. We do not store credit card information you supply to make a purchase on the Phytback.com website. Any information used for recurring billing is stored securely by a top reputable credit card processing company.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use web browser “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. Cookies are also needed by the Phytback.com application and service to function properly and to keep track of your login session. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site. Cookies are also used to track sessions and merchandise purchased on this site in order to properly credit members of our partner affiliate program.
In order to use this website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required.
We request information from you on our merchandise order form, and when you purchase a membership, or make a donation. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name, shipping address, email) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes only and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you.
