We at Hawthorne understand the concern regarding privacy and the Web, and are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers. The information we collect is the same information we collect in-store when purchases are made. We do not sell or provide this information to third parties not affiliated with Hawthorne. We use this information to process your order and to provide a more personalized shopping experience. We may occasionally present special offers or provide information of interest based on your purchases made, again the same way we currently do with in-store purchases.
