Plant Data

This site is all about entering and sharing data pertaining to plants, it should not be a surprise that most plant data can be seen by any visitor to the site.
The default for plant data sharing is "Public", but that data can be made "Private", or made visible only to other site "Members".
However it is hoped that members will allow all their plant data to be public, and avoid entering anything that they do not wish to share. Note that the history section of a plant's data can be made private independently of the other plant data.


Any photos that are uploaded by members for a plant that is "Public" can be downloaded by any visitor to the site. If as a member you wish to copyright a public photo it must contain a visible copyright mark within the image.

Financial Information

MOP-DB does not handle any personal financial information such as credit cards.

MOP-DB reserves the right to change the privacy policy if it becomes necessary. Any changes will be reflected in this page.
