Privacy Policy

YOUR PRIVACY is important, and I want you to understand what information is collected when you visit

Information You Provide

You do not need to register to use or access the websites. However, the site may make comment sections, forums, or similar features available to its users. You may be required to register for these features, particularly if you wish to leave comments or post information. When you prepare a comment, you may have the opportunity to add the name of your website or blog within the submission form; if you do, your name as it appears in the published comment will be hotlinked to your blog or website. Should you choose to e-mail me, I will have your e-mail address and whatever other personally identifiable information you send.

Except as provided in this privacy policy, I will not share your information with any third-party organization without your express consent.

Please note that if you post comments or other information to the main blog or any forum, any personally identifiable information you provide may be read, collated and used by anyone viewing them. As such, I am not responsible for personally identifiable information you may choose to make available through these features.

Visitors to my websites have the opportunity to sign up to receive communications from us, including our e-mail newsletters. We rely on a third party e-mail marketing company (mailchimp) to deliver this service. If you would like to sign up, you will need to provide your email address. These communications may include our regular newsletter, product promotions, and any other information that we feel you might find interesting. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in any email I send to you.

Google analytics collects information which on visitors, and is governed by their policies.


My site uses “cookies” to provide easier and faster access to website features such as log-ins or repeat visits. Cookies are very small text files that are stored on personal computers for reference purposes. I do not link the information I store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you have submitted while on our site.

This site may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie makes it easier for you to explore our sites, but expires when your browser is closed. A persistent cookie may stay on your hard drive for an extended period of time, and can perform such activities as storing your log-in information for forums or message boards so you do not have to sign in every time you visit those areas. Persistent cookies may be used to enable us to track and target the interests of our users so as to enhance the visitor’s overall experience.

I use a third party to serve some of the ads on our websites. I must alert you that it may use cookies, web beacons, or both to collect data in the ad-serving process:

Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to this website.
Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the advertising opt-out page. (Users may, alternatively, opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.)
Cookies of other third-party vendors or ad networks may also be used to serve ads on this site: A list of these potential vendors, with links to their sites, is located here. Users may visit those websites to opt out of cookies (if the vendor or ad network offers this capability). Users can opt out of some, but not all, of these cookies in one location at the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out website at

Links to Other Websites

My websites contain links to other sites that I do not control. When you click on a link to another site, please read its privacy policy. I are not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of any website other than our own.

If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer wish us to possess your information, you may request correction, updating, or deletion of your information by emailing us at awaytogarden [at] gmail [dot] com. Contact information is repeated at the end of this privacy policy.

I reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information as required by law, if I believe disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or other legal process.
