This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Everything Aquatic collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from the users of this website. This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by Everything Aquatic.

Personal and Non-Personal Identification Information

We may collect personal identification information to track our visitors, registrations, orders, etc. When appropriate this may include legal name, email address, mailing address, phone number, as well as other details required to complete any transaction.  This information is required to process payment, to ship and deliver orders as well as to contact by email.  Information shared with us remains within our company and is never sold or shared outside of completing orders or other transactions initiated by our customers.


Both registered customers and our visitors can opt to receive our newsletters.  We average 1-2 newsletters each month.  Newsletters may include sales notices, company information, product details, and other helpful information regarding the aquarium hobby and keeping your ornamental species healthy.  At any time you can click the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of any newsletter received or can email us at ne********@ev***************.net

Anonymous or Guest Users

We do not require accounts to shop or purchase from this website. Users may visit our website anonymously; but will be limited in the types of allowed activities.  However, having an established account does have its privileges, including the following:

  • Ordering with a registered account you can participate in our 3% Cash Back Program.  Earnings are posted after an order has been completed.  Funds are tied to your account.  And must be logged in to use them.  Funds cannot be cashed out as they have no monetary value off this website.
  • Some accounts have access to special products or are offered special pricing. 
  • If needing special access to certain products, email us with your request.  It will be evaluated and responded to as soon as possible, within 72 hours max.  If you do not hear back from us, please do not assume we are ignoring your request.  We strive to respond to all emails received.  Please resend your request.  Sometimes things go haywire and the emails are not received.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture may be visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If uploading images to the website, avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

The Contact form will capture your information, if logged in, and will generate an email that includes the IP for tracking purposes and to reduce spam.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Occasionally embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) may be used on this site. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

Absolutely no one outside the ordering process, ie. shipping, payment processing, etc. The only time data may be shared outside of the ordering process is if compelled by law.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website, we also store personal information provided in the user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except the username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
