What Information Do We Collect?
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features designed to meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your experience safer and easier. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
Once you become a User, we require you to provide us with contact and identity information, billing, and other personal information as indicated on the relevant forms on the Site (which vary, depending on what kind of User you are), and you are no longer anonymous to us. When filling out the forms, we indicate (where possible) which fields are required and which are optional.
In addition, as you use the Site, you can from time to time enter or send to us personal information. For example, if you are a Subscriber, you can enter your own email server settings. As you use the Site you can also from time to time enter personal information about third parties. For example, if you are a Subscriber, you can enter personal information about your Customers or your staff.
You may opt not to provide information by declining to become a User or by not using the particular feature of the Site for which the information is being collected.
As a User you provide certain Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) to PlantechHub when choosing to participate in various activities on the Site such as registering as a member of the Site, ordering various products or services, uploading content, taking advantage of promotions, responding to surveys, or subscribing to newsletters or other mailing lists. PII includes information such as your name, street address, town or city, state, zip code, telephone number, instant-messenger nickname, blog or other personal website URL, date of birth, email address and any other information that would allow someone to identify you or contact you. PII also includes information about your personal preferences, survey responses and your transactions or relationship with us, if you have been a user of the Site or you have provided this type of information to us. For example, if you order any of our products, we will also collect and maintain your billing and shipping address, product selections your order number, and information about your computer’s internet address and website, which may have referred or directed you to the Site. Sensitive Customer PII that may be input to PlantechHub products, such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and credit or debit card numbers are collected via a secure transmission.
Personal Information is collected when you visit the Site and input information, whether you are registering to use any services, features, or functions of the Site, participating in promotions, ordering or purchasing products, or in the course of other exchanges of information, transactions, or activities. We may use this information to tailor your experience on the Site, display content we think may be of interest to you, or customize what you see when you visit the Site according to your preferences.
We automatically track certain information about you based upon your behavior on our Site and use this information to do internal research on our User’s demographics, interests, and requests in order to better understand, protect, and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our Site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our Site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address.
Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to PlantechHub, by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or registering for a 30-day trial, you remain anonymous to PlantechHub. In order to begin using PlantechHub services and create a trial account you will be required to provide PlantechHub with your name, address, phone number, and email address.
Cookies come in two types: Session and Persistent.
Session cookies are temporary cookies that exist only during an online session and are not stored on your computer or mobile device. They are used as part of the login, authentication and session management flows of the SaaS platform websites. PlantechHub uses Session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the system to uniquely identify you while you are logged in. This information allows PlantechHub Technology to process your online transactions and requests. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you have logged in and are required in order to use the PlantechHub application. Certain session cookies are also used to understand, for example, if a user interacting with our company website is a new visitor or a visitor returning as part of the same browsing session. These session cookies are erased when you close your browser, or after extended inactivity.
Persistent cookies are those placed on your computer or mobile device for a pre-determined length of time when you visit this site. PlantechHub uses persistent cookies that only the Site can read and use, to identify the fact that you are a Subscriber or prior Site visitor (whatever the case may be). We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. For example, we do not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies. They are used on both the SaaS platform and company websites, for reasons including, for example, to store user preferences, understand through Analytics tools what areas of our websites and platform are most popular and how customers and users engage with them as well as storing user preference data such as filters for various functions within the software.
How We Use Your Information

PlantechHub does not use your personal information for making automated decisions.
