FertileDirt Privacy Policy

Last Revised: October 26, 2011


The FertileDirt™ Team Respects Your Privacy


This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for FertileDirt.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the web site, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  4. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. Only we have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contact from us at any time. To do so, Contact Us at any time or email us directly: privacy@fertiledirt.com


We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Our Contact Us page submits the information in an email we receive. Email is technically not secure; email is transmitted in the clear, which has been aptly compared with sending a postcard through the mail; therefore, we are not liable for any loss of privacy resulting from unencrypted email. However, if this is a concern, we are able to facilitate encrypted communication in a secure environment through our processing domain.


https://castletie.com is our processing domain we use to securely transmit and process sensitive data. We only collect confidential information to send to our processing domain, shown by the following icon:

SSL certificate

Where we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify the security once at https://castletie.com by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page, (i.e. the s in https means secure). You may also click on the security seal pictured above.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only the FertileDirt™ team and staff who need the information to perform a specific function, or job for you, are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should Contact Us or email us directly: privacy@fertiledirt.com
