Privacy Policy

This privacy policy addresses the privacy protection practices of Greening Detroit, LLC (“we”, “us” or “GD”) on GreeningDetroit.com (the “Site”).  GD respects your privacy. Our primary purpose in collecting information from you is to help us provide you with better service, such as notifications about special offers and promotions.

 

Information Gathered by This Site

We may request that an entity or individual applying for an account with GD provide us with certain personal information (such as name, email address, payment information, etc.) relevant to our provision of the various services offered on this Site. As you navigate through the Site, your browsing activity is automatically retrieved.  This information is used online in an aggregate form, so no individual user is expressly identified.  This aggregated data allows us to analyze our Site traffic and thus improve the relevancy of service provided to you the end user.  When we request information, we explain how it may be used and give you an opportunity to request that the information not be used for those purposes. We also give you an opportunity to opt out of future communications from us.

 

Cookies

Cookies are data files stored on your computer that identify you as a unique user.  Cookies can make the Web more useful by storing information about your preferences on particular sites, thus enabling website owners to provide more useful features for their users.  Like most sites, GD uses cookies to enable us to track user trends, preferences and patterns to better understand our user base and to improve the quality of the Site and our service. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies but permit users to refuse cookies or to be notified before a cookie is accepted. If you would prefer, you can visit our Site without using cookies, however it may impact your ability to use certain features of our Site.

Links to Other Sites

The Site contains links to other web sites and resources (collectively, “Other Sites”). Those Other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. We are not responsible or liable for the privacy practices or content of Other Sites since we do not control them.

 

Information Sharing

GD may share non-personal, non-personally identifiable information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. However, we only divulge aggregate information, such as how often the average user visits the Site. GD may partner with other parties in connection with the various services offered on the site, such as credit card processors or email delivery services. In such instances, we may share limited personal information that is necessary for the third-party to provide its services. These companies are prohibited from using this information for any other purpose.

 

GD may also provide personal information when disclosure is required by law (e.g., subpoenas, search warrants and court orders). We may also determine that such action is reasonably necessary to protect a party’s rights, property, or well-being. This action may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud detection or protection, or in other situations involving suspicious or illegal activities.

 

Security

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.  Unfortunately, no data can be guaranteed to be completely secure, including information you provide to the site.  We will not be responsible for any unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information.

 

Children

GD does not specifically target children under the age of 13, nor do we knowingly collect, without parental consent, individually identifiable information from such children.  In the event that we are notified that we have inadvertently collected such information, we will promptly delete it.

 

Business Transfers

In the event of a transfer of ownership of GD or the Site, such as acquisition by or merger with another company, Site users’ personal information may be transferred in connection with such a transfer.

Additionally, if you are using any of our services, we may also collect and use information in accordance with such service’s applicable terms and conditions. GD may decide to change this privacy policy from time to time. If and when we do, we will post the changes on this page so that you are aware of the information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
