Green Pal will collect personal information from our users for different purposes. Information gathered online can be identified as either anonymous or identifiable. Anonymous information is information that cannot be traced back to the individual. Identifiable information is information that is specific to the individual.
To register for an account, a user has to create a profile by completing an online form. Through the completion of the form by a user we may collect one or more of the following categories of information: (i) contact data (full name, mailing address, and email address); (ii) financial data (account or credit card number); (iii) demographic data (age, income, and zip code); (iv) username; and (v) password. The provision of one or more of these categories of personal information is mandatory and if you choose not to submit the requested information we will not be able to provide you with an account for the Website and/or Application. To the extent financial data is not collected to create an account, financial data may be collected through a separate online form or through a third party payment processor in order to finalize and complete a transaction.
We do not require that you register for an account in order to browse the Website. However, in order to access certain features or areas of the Website, you will need to register for an account.
Our Website may provide you with the opportunity to email a webpage to another person. For this feature to work, we may need to collect your name and email address and the name and email address of the person to whom you send the webpage. Green Pal does not store this information and it is used for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
