Privacy statement for GreenMe.ie
The privacy of our visitors to GreenMe.ie is important to us. Our company follows rigorous security protocols to safeguard any personal information you share with us.
Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use our site, and how we safeguard your information.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), when you visited, how long you spent on our site and which pages you visited.
If we need to share this log file information with businesses that participate in GreenMe or other third parties, it is always in the form of aggregate statistics. These aggregate statistics do not identify the personal information of individual users.
However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into your personal GreenMe account.
In order to use certain features of GreenMe.ie, users must first complete the registration form to become a member. During registration, you are required to give certain contact information (name, email address, county) and specify your green interests. This information is used to contact users about services on our site (email alerts, competitions etc), in which they may be interested.
When we give information to businesses that participate in GreenMe, it is in the form of grouped statistics based on registered members’ information. The system is designed to make it impossible for outside companies to contact you directly or to extract personal information without your consent.
By registering for GreenMe.ie you acknowledge that you have been informed by GreenMe.ie that:
• Personal information submitted by you for the purpose of this arrangement may be used or processed for relevant third parties in this way
• You have been informed of your right to object to such use of your personal data, and you do not so wish to object
Personally identifiable information may also be submitted by our website visitors who make enquiries through the site.
We use this information for the following purposes:
• To handle your queries and comments about the GreenMe service
• To email one or more types of newsletter (if you have opted into receiving these newsletters)
• To perform statistical analysis measuring relative interest in the various areas of our site
If you add comments to blog entries on GreenMe.ie, you are asked for your name and email address. The email address will not be published within your comment in the blog, and is collected to protect the integrity of content within the blogs.
In posting a blog comment, you acknowledge that any other personally identifiable that you submit with your comment is provided voluntarily and may be visible to other users of the site.
What we don’t do
We do not, under any circumstances:
• Link IP addresses that we collect to anything personally identifiable
• Release personal information about any individual visitor to a third party unless it is necessary to complete the visitor’s request for information about the third party’s products or services or is required by law
Competitions and surveys
From time to time we may ask registered members and other visitors to the GreenMe.ie website for further personal information via surveys and contests.
Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose the information.
The use of any personal information submitted in this way is subject to the guidelines of this privacy statement.
Upon request, GreenMe will remove any registered use from our membership database, and delete all their personal information. Any such request should be sent via email to info@GreenMe.ie
If at any point you wish to unsubscribe from our monthly newsletter, you will be able to follow a link included in each email.
GreenMe is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of external websites to which we may link.
