Privacy Policy


Privacy Policy

Christmas Tree Farm Network, Inc. (collectively CTFN or “Website(s)” or “we”) is the owner and
operator of www.christmasmall.us and www.christmas-tree.com. This Policy applies to both
Websites. CTFN is committed to the protection of the information you provide us through our
Websites, including any information submitted to us via Transmissions (see Terms of Use) or via
various forms, now or in the future. CTFN is the sole owner of the information collected on our
Websites and will not sell, rent or share the information collected in a manner that differs from
what is disclosed in this Policy. Information may be collected at different points on our Websites and all of it is subject to what is contained herein.

CTFN only collects personally identifiable information (PII), and other user information, as
described herein. Should CTFN start collecting additional PII, it will provide notification of same,
and the ability to opt out as defined in our Terms of Use. CTFN works diligently to ensure that it
has taken all appropriate administrative and technical measures to prevent the unauthorized or
unlawful use of your PII, and to prevent any accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, such
information.

Information Collected

There are various types of information that CTFN collects, either via CTFN’s secure online shopping
cart or during interactions while you use or access our Websites. Some of this information is
provided voluntarily by you and other information is provided through automated processes
under CTFN’s control.

Information Provided By You


In addition to PII you may provide during your use of CTFN’s secure online shopping cart (e.g.
name and credit card), you may also provide CTFN PII during the following representative class of
interactions:


* requesting customer support and sending us similar communications;

* ordering products or services made available by CTFN;

* responding to CTFN surveys and other special information requests;

* communicating with CTFN regarding our compliance with applicable laws.

The above list is not exhaustive, but merely representative of a class of interactions which are
covered by this Policy.

Information Provided By Automated Processes

CTFN may use cookies, web beacons, and log files to collect non-PII. A cookie is data stored in a
small text file on your local access device that contains data about you. The information in the
cookie is used to uniquely identify you and other CTFN users. It identifies a particular user at a
particular point in time. You have the option of resetting your browser to reject cookies. It is
possible that in the future some of our partners may use cookies on the CTFN Websites; however,
CTFN has no control over such cookies.

CTFN may collect non-PII through the use of web beacons and log files. TCP/IP addresses are
examples of non-PII. An IP address is way to uniquely identify a computer. CTFN may use IP
addresses for analyzing Website usage (e.g. tracking user movement throughout the site) and for
aggregating user metrics. CTFN may also use IP addresses for gathering information for aggregate
analytics (e.g. trend analysis). CTFN may collect, in addition to IP addresses, browser type and
other related information.

CTFN may also use web beacons to enable communications with third parties. A web beacon is a
small image in an HTML page with all dimensions set to 1 pixel. Because of its insignificant
size, it is not visible; but it is used to pass certain non-PII anonymously to third-party sites,
usually advertisers.

Use of Information

CTFN may use the information that it collects about you to improve your CTFN browsing experience
and also to select content and services that you may find interesting and useful. Information
about the content you visit and the services you use may be used alone or in conjunction with
information collected from other users to help modify our Websites.

Sharing of Information


Any PII that you provide CTFN will not be shared with third parties without your permission, for
any purpose, other than those enumerated below. CTFN reserves the right to share with third parties
aggregated non-PII for the purpose of compiling information that is relevant to the interests of
the CTFN community. CTFN, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to disclose any information that
it obtains through our Websites to appropriate governmental or regulatory authorities, if required
by law or any governmental agency. Likewise, CTFN, at its sole discretion, may share any
information collected, stored and processed, if it has a good faith belief that to do is reasonably
necessary to (1) enforce its Terms of Use; (2) detect, investigate and otherwise address fraud,
security or technical breaches or related matters; or (3) protect against imminent harm to the
rights, property or safety of CTFN, its users, customers, or the public, as required or permitted by
law.

Security of Information


Any information sent to CTFN through Internet e-mail or through our Websites, other than through
our secure online shopping cart, is not secure and is done so on a non-confidential basis.
Therefore, any information you send CTFN over the Internet, either through our Websites or via
email, is done at your own risk. However, once such information is received, CTFN takes
appropriate security measures to prevent its unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction.
These measures include periodic review of internal processes, and benchmarking of same with
industry best practices. Access to PII is restricted to CTFN employees, contractors, and agents on a
need to know basis. Such individuals are generally bound by confidentiality agreements and may
be subject to termination and criminal prosecution should they fail to comply with same.

Protecting Children

CTFN does not knowingly collect or solicit PII from anyone under the age of 18, with or without
parental consent. No child under the age of 18 should attempt to communicate with CTFN via
Transmissions (or by any other mechanism), or otherwise provide us any PII including name,
credit card, email address, phone number, physical address or any such similar information. The
protection of children on the Internet is an important public policy concern—one that CTFN is
committed to supporting.

Links

The CTFN Websites contain hyperlinks to other websites. CTFN is not responsible for the privacy
practices of such sites. CTFN users are encouraged to note when they leave the CTFN Websites and to
read the respective privacy policies of each website that collects PII. This Policy only applies to
information contained within the CTFN Websites.

Policy Changes

If CTFN decides to change this Privacy Policy, then CTFN will post a notification on our
homepage(s). In this manner you will always be aware of what information we collect, how we
use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. CTFN will only use the information in
accordance with the privacy policy under which it was collected.
