Collection of personal information

As a visitor to this Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. When ordering products or services on the Site, you will be asked to provide your name, your company’s name, address, email address, credit card number, phone and fax numbers, job description and company type. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.

As is true of most websites, when you use the Site, Green Automotive or third parties authorized by Green Automotive may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the Site and its services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of the Site and its services. Green Automotive also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Site. Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information.

In order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate our users, and prevent abuse of our system, we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third-party sources. For example, we may supplement your Registration Information with address information provided by the U.S. Postal Service to qualify your information and prevent errors in our database.

How your personal information is used

Green Automotive collects your information in order to record and provide information pertinent to the products you purchased or in which you express an interest. Your personal information is also used by Green Automotive to track customer preferences and keep you informed about special offers and services of Green Automotive and selected third parties on whose behalf Green Automotive may contact you unless you opt out of receiving partner emails. We send these partner special offers to you directly. At no time do we share your email address with our partners. Green Automotive may collect information about the use of the Site, such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. Green Automotive may use this aggregate, nonidentifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.

Your choices with respect to personal information

Green Automotive recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of information collected on the Site. Green Automotive may communicate information to you regarding products, services, and special offers available from Green Automotive or selected third parties unless you have opted not to receive such communications or such communications are prohibited by law, although we may find it necessary to communicate with you regarding your use of the services on the Site. We do not sell, rent or share your personally identifiable information to or with 3rd parties for marketing purposes or in any way other than that disclosed in this privacy statement. Green Automotive may still contact you with strictly service-related announcements when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if any of the products on the Site are unavailable or if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.

Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option of deactivating your account.

There are limited instances in which Green Automotive may divulge your personal information, including requirements of law, regulation, or litigation. We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law (e.g., to comply with a subpoena, warrant, court order, or legal process served on Green Automotive or its related entities) and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, and/or respond to a government request. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that such disclosure should be made for reasons of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance.

Protection of your personal information

The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself on the Site is, for the purposes of this Privacy Policy, classified as Registration Information. Registration Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Registration Information is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. You should not divulge your password to anyone.

We strive to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on this Site, you can send email to us at info@earthgarage.com
