Your privacy is critically important to us. At The Green Creator we have a few fundamental principles.

Website Visitors

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.

Comments

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.

Contact Form

Information received via contact form submissions are not used for marketing purposes.

Media

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.

How long?

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.

How we protect your information

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Green Creator’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Green Creator will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Green Creator discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Green Creator believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Green Creator, third parties or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Green Creator takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file, which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. A cookie allows us to analyse traffic patterns to our website. A cookie cannot give us access to your computer or to information beyond what you provide us. 

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Advertising

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.
