This sharing enables us to notify current and new customers of products, services, rewards, and special offers they might enjoy. We may also provide your personal information to other companies designated by Gardensouq and under the Loyalty Program (Partners) so that they can notify you directly of products, services, rewards and special offers that may be of interest to you.

Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us. Gardensouq has attempted to match online prices to those in-store; however online prices, product and service selection, and availability, and sale effective dates may differ from those in-store and may vary by geographic region. Due to differences in sale effective dates across the country, items may be available online at the sale price before they are available in store. Dealers are under no obligation to make promotional products available or to match online prices until the sale begins in their region. Market conditions and competitive pressures may cause prices and availability to change without further notice. Gardensouq Associate Dealers may sell for less. With respect to items sold by Gardensouq, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be misprinted/mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by Gardensouq is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a misprinted/mispriced item.
