Privacy Policy

At Peony Shop Holland «we» respect your privacy rights. We have created this Privacy Policy to explain how we treat the information collected and received from your use of our website

This Privacy Policy applies only to our website, and we are not responsible for the practices of persons, companies, institutions or websites that Peony Shop Holland does not control, manage, or employ. Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service (“Terms of Use”) and other published guidelines, we do not release personal information about our users without their permission.

What Information this Privacy Policy Covers

Some of our Website’s functionality can be used without revealing any personal information, though for features or services related to purchase or account creation, personal information is required. If you do not use these specific features or services on the Website, then the only information we collect will be “Non-Personal Information” (i.e., information that cannot be used to identify you). Non-Personal Information includes information such as the web pages that you have viewed or search parameters that you enter when viewing Peony Assortments. In order to access certain features and benefits on our Website, you may need to submit “Personally Identifiable Information” (i.e., information that can be used to identify you). Personally Identifiable Information can include information such as your name and email address, among other things. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personally Identifiable Information you submit to Peony Shop Holland. Inaccurate information may affect your ability to use the Website, the information you receive when using the Website, and our ability to contact you. For example, your email address should be kept current because that is one of the primary manners in which we communicate with you.

If you refuse or withdraw your consent, or if you choose not to provide us with any required Personally Identifiable Information, we may not be able to provide you with the services that can be offered on our Website — primarily the purchase of peonies.
