We use address information to deliver to you and to charge your payment card.

We use your email address to update you on your order progress or to reply to queries you have made. This is ‘transactional’ email and relates solely to your order. Once we believe your order has been delivered we will send you a feedback email, if you have not subscribed as part of the order process this will be the final communication you receive from us.
Subscribing to our mailing list
If you click subscribe during the checkout process you are ‘opting in’ and will be added to our mailing list and agree to receive marketing emails and items of legitimate interest from PlantSavers from time to time. At any point you can unsubscribe from these emails via the unsubscribe button at the bottom of these communications. We will then remove you from the mailing list. By default you are not subscribed to this list when you make an order and will need to click our opt in button in order to be added to the list.
