What information does America Green Builders collect and how is it used?

The America Green Builders site actively collects information volunteered by our users in several areas, including for magazine subscription pages, trade show registrations, bookstore transactions, newsletter sign up pages, website registrations, and online surveys. The information we request for you to participate in these features may include personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you) such as your name, address, telephone and fax numbers, and e­mail address, as well as “demographic” information such as the type of business you work for, your job responsibilities and certain information about your company. We will tell you at the time we collect information about whether the information requested is necessary for you to participate in a particular feature. 

The information we collect is used to respond to your specific requests, to send you periodic information and special offers from America Green Builders and our sponsors, to provide you with updates on America Green Builders offerings and features, to provide you with product information from manufacturers in our database, to provide notice of changes to our Privacy Policy, and to provide our sponsors and business partners with data about our users. The information you provide is also used to understand users’ interests and behavior, and may be combined and analyzed with information America Green Builders may have from other online or offline sources for marketing or other purposes. As you navigate through our website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technology, techniques, and means. Like most website operators, America Green Builders uses cookies, web beacons, log files, and other electronic information collection mechanisms to track IP addresses and gather certain information from website users. IP addresses are collected for system administration purposes and for studying how people use our site and how we can improve them. When you use our site, we may record information about your usage of the site, such as by using the site’s groups, forums or blogs, and/or uploading images or photos. If you are logged into our site, we may associate the login information with your account information. To ensure the quality of our site’s services to you, we may place a tag (also called a web beacon) in HTML-­based customer support e­mails to or other communications with you to confirm delivery. 

America Green Builders uses cookies to identify registered site users and to automatically give them access to “member only” content areas such as articles and reports, and to provide them with access to previously ­stored information. America Green Builders also uses cookies to estimate our audience size and usage patterns and to track the aggregate number of customer returns at our site. Finally, America Green Builders uses cookies to help simplify the process of filling out certain forms on our site that allow you to request information from manufacturers in our catalog and/or our advertisers. You can choose whether or not you accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser. However, certain parts of our site may not work if you turn off cookies on your browser.

When sharing your information with third parties, America Green Builders endeavors to oblige the third parties, via limited use or nondisclosure obligations, to follow practices substantially similar to those of America Green Builders concerning such information.

As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us or from us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems. America Green Builders, however, will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmissions or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.

Also, any personally identifiable information or sensitive data that you disclose through any discussion boards or other public online forums hosted on the site may be collected and used by others. We recommend caution when giving out personal information to others in these public online forums. When you provide information on these forums, you do so at your own risk. The information you share may be viewed by any other user of the site.
