Privacy Policy

Effective Date: February 2018
The following Privacy Policy governs the online information collection practices of YARDANDGARAGE.COM “we” or “us”). Specifically, it outlines the types of information that we gather about you while you are using the YardandGarage.com website (the “Site”) and how we use this information.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By visiting and using the Site, you agree that your use of our Site, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Privacy Policy.

We will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorized third party.

How we gather information from users

How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to particular portions of our site or request specific features, such as newsletters or when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate in surveys, sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site.

Like most Web sites, YardandGarage.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your username and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site.

As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In some instances, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies. If you do you may be unable to access individual portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your username and password, and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.

Google Analytics Tracking

We’ve implemented a tracking code to collect demographic information in Google Analytics. You can opt-out of this program anytime by adjusting your Ads Settings. You may also wish to review other available opt-outs.

What we do with the information we collect

Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.

Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually. Although we use re-marketing, we don’t collect or store personally identifiable information, including demographic information. We also don’t send Google any precise data (i.e., location) without your consent. Regarding Re-marketing, Google reserves the right to display to users which re-marketing lists they’re on, along with the corresponding domain name.

We may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on YardandGarage.com to communicate with you about your registration and customization preferences; our Terms of Service and privacy policy; services and products offered by YardandGarage.com and other topics we think you might find of interest.

Personally Identifiable Information collected by YardandGarage.com may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law. Also, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice before disclosure in such cases.

Third Party Advertisements / Google Ads
