Collection & Storage of Personal Information
We collect and store personal information that you give us when you shop on our website, complete an application, place an order, enroll in a promotional or rewards program, call us, or send us a letter or e–mail. This information may include your name, mailing address, e–mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card number and expiration date, and other optional demographic information. If you respond to a sweepstakes or contest, we will ask you to verify that you are old enough to participate.
How We Use Personal Information
We use the personal information we collect to process your orders, identify you within our systems, contact you if we have questions about your order, and to notify you about new services or special promotional programs.
We share your personal information within TheGreenOffice.com and with third parties that perform services for us or on our behalf (for example, credit card companies, financial institutions, shipping companies, printing houses, consultants and advisors) and when, in our judgment, we believe it is necessary or appropriate to prevent fraud, injury, or harm to persons or property, to protect our rights or the rights of others, to comply with applicable laws and regulations, or as otherwise required by law. We limit the scope of the information provided to third parties, and we allow its use only for the purposes for which it was disclosed. Personal information may be transferred in connection with a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, insolvency, or asset sale involving any The Green Office, Inc. business or asset to which the information pertains.
If you shop with us online, we use third–party advertising technology to help us improve our marketing efforts. This technology uses non–personally identifiable information about your visits to TheGreenOffice.com and the sites upon which we advertise. As part of this process, a “cookie” may be placed on your browser. Cookies are small data files that are stored on your computer’s hard drive. These third-party companies do not have the right to use the information we provide to them beyond what is necessary to assist us. For more information, contact a member of our customer service team.
In the course of delivering our online advertisements to you, a unique third–party “cookie” may be placed on your browser. We also use a technology called “web beacons,” that enable our advertising service provider to track which advertisements bring users to our site. To learn more about our third–party advertising service provider please contact a member of our customer service team.
We generally do not seek to collect personal information through our web site from children under age 13. If we conduct an online program that is open to children, personally-identifiable information from children under age 13 will be collected and used only with the consent of the child’s parent or guardian, or the child will be able to participate without providing personally-identifiable information.
Accessing and Amending Personal Information
It is important that our databases are accurate and current. To review and make any appropriate changes or deletions to information about you, please contact a member of our customer service team or update your account by signing in to our our website.
Our Approach to Security
We maintain reasonable physical, technical, and procedural measures to limit access to personal information to authorized individuals with appropriate purposes. Our web site is a “Secure Site” recognized by VeriSign, a leading computer network security company. If you believe that someone has improperly used personally identifiable information about you or has made purchases that you did not authorize, please contact us immediately.
