Ambient Green, LLC (“Ambient Green”) operates AmbientGreen.com and may operate other websites. It is Ambient Green’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Ambient Green collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Ambient Green’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how its visitors use its website. From time to time, Ambient Green may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Ambient Green also collects potentially personally-identifying information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on AmbientGreen.com blogs/sites. Ambient Green only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that is uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog or site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors of Ambient Green’s websites choose to interact with Ambient Green in ways that require Ambient Green to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Ambient Green gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we may ask visitors who sign up at AmbientGreen.com to provide a username, password, and email address. This may also include the content of information you post to the site (e.g., text, photos, videos, links). Those who engage in transactions with Ambient Green are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Ambient Green collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Ambient Green. Ambient Green does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Ambient Green may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Ambient Green may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Ambient Green does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Ambient Green discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Ambient Green’s behalf or to provide services available at Ambient Green’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Ambient Green’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Ambient Green will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Ambient Green discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when Ambient Green believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Ambient Green, third parties, or the public at large.
