Your privacy is critically important to us. At The Green Creator we have a few fundamental principles.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify you, such as your name, title, phone number, email address, or postal address.
We use several products to analyse traffic to our website in order to understand our visitors’ needs and to continually improve our site for them, such as Google Analytics. We collect only anonymous, aggregate statistics. There are some services on our website that require you to be registered. For example, to receive our newsletter. As part of the registration process, we collect your personal information. We use this information to send you newsletters if you’ve opted-in to receive them. We will never sell, rent or trade email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes.
We may collect personal information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our site, subscribe to the newsletter, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address. Users may, however, visit our Site anonymously. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personally identification information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities. The Green Creator also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. The Green Creator only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described above, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
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.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.
Information received via contact form submissions are not used for marketing purposes.
If you upload images to the website, you should 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.
Non-personal identification information
We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.
How we use collected information
The Green Creator may collect and use Users personal information for the following purposes:
- to run a promotion, contest, survey or other Site feature
- to send Users information they agreed to receive about topics we think will be of interest to them.
- to send periodic emails such as newsletters
If User decides to opt-in to our mailing list, they will receive emails that may include company news, updates, related product or service information, etc.
We don’t keep your data any longer than is necessary for the processing of the purposes for which your data was collected.
We save your name and e-mail address as long as you are registered to the newsletter.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
