Site Use Information
For purposes of determining "hit counts" and analyzing website trends, our server will track your IP address and the pages you access. We also may collect other non-personally identifiable information when you visit our website such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows '98) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online).
We may use aggregated data (independent of any personal identifiers) for research and commercial purposes. This information includes what areas our users visit most frequently and what services they access most often. This information helps us develop a better site that is more useful and accessible to you.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
The Green House Project collects personally identifiable information (such as name and email address) from our users at several different points on our website, including the User Profile (registration) form and the Contact Us form. This information is voluntarily entered by you.
We may use your personally identifiable information internally for general commercial purposes including, among other things, to offer our own, our affiliates’ or third-party products and services that we think you may find of interest, but only The Green House Project, its affiliates and contractors involved in distributing the offers or providing the products or services will have access to your information. Affiliates and contractors will be required to use any information we provide them only for that intended purpose.
The Green House Project is the sole owner of the information collected on this website.
To access some parts of this website, receive eNewsletters and/or mailings (including publication hard copies), you must register on our website by completing the online User Profile (registration) form. During registration you are required to give contact information, such as your name, postal address, and email address. The Green House Project and its affiliates and contractors will use this information primarily to fulfill your service request, to respond to your inquiries, and to provide requested information on products and services. We also use this information to better understand our web visitor demographics in order to improve our website content and provide a more personalized online experience.

We will occasionally send you information on products, services, programs, and news items. You can sign up for these communications on our User Profile (registration) form.

If you wish to receive our eNewsletter(s) or publications featured on our website, we will use the personal information you provided to fulfill your request. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe. Please see the “Choice/Opt-out” section below.
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us on your User Profile, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the products and services you requested, and to manage your account. We may communicate with you by email, telephone, or postal mail, in accordance with your wishes.
We provide you the opportunity to "opt-out" of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes, when we ask for this information.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter, mailings, or promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or un-checking your original selections on your online User Profile form.

If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire certain services (such as an eNewsletter), you may correct, update, or "opt out" by making the change on your User Profile. Alternatively, you may contact us via the online form on our Contact Us page.
Disclosure of Your Information
We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information or permit unaffiliated third parties to use it for their own marketing purposes. We may, however, disclose your non-public personal information as permitted or required by law.
Links to Other Sites
This website contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by The Green House Project. Please be aware that we, The Green House Project, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this website.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard non-public personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
When you enter sensitive information on our registration or other online forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) with 128-bit encryption, and we maintain a valid and current certificate from a recognized Certification Authority.
No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its security.
You also play a role in protecting your information. Do not share your log-in information with anyone and advise us as soon as possible if it is lost or stolen. We will understand any action or transaction taken using your log-in information to be authorized by you.
We restrict access to non-public personal information about our customers to employees who need to know that information to provide products or services. We also educate all employees about the importance of confidentiality and customer privacy.
