INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE COLLECT IT
The information we gather on our site falls into two categories: (1) personal data you supply when you become a member, order, complete a survey, post in a discussion forum, post or provide your email address, and (2) tracking information collected as you navigate through PLNTS.com or any comments on the PLNTS social media accounts.
When you make a purchase, subscribe to our marketing messages or become a registered user, we collect personal data about you such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, username and password.
