GreenBid Privacy Policy

By accessing the website at http://GreenBid.net ("GreenBid Site") or any GreenBid mobile application (e.g., GreenBid for iOS or "GreenBid App") (collectively, the "GreenBid Service"), which are provided by GreenBid LLC ("GreenBid"), you expressly consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Business/Personal Data (as defined below) in accordance with this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy"). We have prepared this Privacy Policy to describe to you our practices regarding the Business/Personal Data we collect from users of the GreenBid Service. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meanings given in our Terms of Service located at http://greenbid.net/greenbid-terms-of-use.

 

A Note To Users Outside Of The United States. Your Business/Personal Data may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States, where laws regarding processing of Business/Personal Data may be less stringent than the laws in your country.

Types Of Data We Collect. "Business/Personal Data" means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, geo-location data, device identifier as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Business/Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Business/Personal Data and Anonymous Data as described below.

Data You Provide to Us.

- Account Information. You may optionally provide an email address and password to use all features of the GreenBid Services (“Account Information”).  You may change the email address and password associated with the account according to the methods provided by the GreenBid Services.

- Feedback/Support. If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail (e.g., for support), we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply. If you contact us for support, we may also collect and retain certain technical diagnostic data, e.g., your phone model.

- Mailing List. If you provide us your email address for inclusion in our mailing lists, we will collect your email address. We may email you GreenBid news, GreenBid Services updates, the latest information on products and services, and third party offers that apply to you. You may opt out of such third party emails at the time of registration, or you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the e-mail you receive.  You may not opt out of emails related to the operation of the GreenBid Services as this may be necessary for the normal operation of the GreenBid Services such as password recovery.

- Purchases. When you purchase a subscription service from us, we will collect all information necessary to complete the transaction, including your name, address, telephone number, and email address. GreenBid does not receive or process credit card information directly.  We currently use Apple for In-App purchases on Apple devices defer to established 3rd party Payment Service Vendors, such as Stripe.com, to process credit card transactions per your Payment Service Vendor agreement. Please review their privacy policies at http://www.apple.com/privacy and https://stripe.com/us/privacy to better understand their practices.

- Other. We may also collect Business/Personal Data at other points in the GreenBid Service that state that Business/Personal Data is being collected.  GreenBid will retain Business Information and Sync Log Data in the GreenBid App or on the servers for the GreenBid Service, for as long as needed to provide the GreenBid Service and to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

Data Collected via Technology.

- Device Information. We will collect an ID that is unique to the mobile device on which you install the GreenBid App ("Device ID" and "Device," respectively). For example, if you installed the GreenBid App on an Apple Device, we store your identifierForVendor.  We may create a hashed version of your Device ID and use your hashed Device ID to log you into the GreenBid Service. We may store your Device ID and/or your hashed Device ID with other information we collect about you, including your Business Information and your Activity Log information. We will collect certain software and hardware information about your Device.

- Log Files. To make the GreenBid Service more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) or analytic partners may collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit. We also use cookies and URL information to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the information for which you searched and which you viewed. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a web site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on the GreenBid Service. Persistent Cookies we place may be removed by following instructions provided by your operating platform.  If you choose to disable Cookies, some areas or features of the GreenBid Service may not work properly.

- App Usage. Similarly, the GreenBid app periodically submits App Usage data, including such items as screen access, feature access, session duration, error logging and crash reports. These data are critical to improving the service/app, monitoring for problems and responding to client demands as we determine the priorities which features to expand and how to develop them in accordance with client usage.

- General Use of Your Data. We use your Business/Personal Data in the following ways and as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy: (a) to identify you as a user on the GreenBid Service; (b) to improve the GreenBid Service; (c) to provide the services you request, including the GreenBid Service; (d) to respond to your inquiries related to support, employment opportunities or other requests; (e) to send you Promotional Emails if you opted in to receiving them at the time of registration for the GreenBid Services or otherwise subsequently agreed to be included on our mailing lists; and (f) to fulfill a product or service purchase.

Changing Your Personal Data.

- Changes to your Business/Personal Data. You may change certain fields of your Business Information by editing your Business in the GreenBid App. You may request deletion of your Business/Personal Data by us, but please note that we may be legally required to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives or on any device to which you have shared your database. We may keep your Business/Personal Data, Device ID, hashed Device ID, and your usage history (which includes a history of Trade Pack Syncs and Messages sent via SMS through our service) for administrative purposes.

Security Of Your Business/Personal Data.

- Security Of Your Business/Personal Data. GreenBid is committed to protecting the security of your Business/Personal Data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your Business/Personal Data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure, however. Therefore, while GreenBid uses reasonable efforts to protect your Business/Personal Data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, GreenBid cannot guarantee its absolute security.
