Who we are
Our website address is: https://grosmartlawnandgarden.com/.
We receive and store information entered on grosmartlawnandgarden.com/ or as provide in any other way by a customer.

We use the information our customers provide to respond to requests for information and for general customer communications.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever our customers interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when a customer’s Web browser accesses our Web site.
When customers download information from our site we may receive information concerning location and mobile device, including a unique identifier for the device. We may use this information to provide location-based services, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow customers to turn off location services.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when customers open e-mail from www.think-soil.com or groSMARTlawnandgarden.com assuming the computer supports such capabilities. Receipt of e-mails or other mail can be prevented via adjustment to customer preferences.
