INFORMATION GOOD EARTH COLLECTS
Personally Identifiable Information.
When using the Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”), which is information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally. Personal Information can include by way of example and not by limitation your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or mobile telephone number, and date of birth. For example, we may collect Personal Information when you request Good Earth news, if you choose to enter a Good Earth contest or sweepstakes or we seek feedback from you about the Site or Good Earth products in the form of a questionnaire or survey. We may also ask you to create a screen name and/or a password, where applicable, and provide us with demographic information (such as information about your age or gender), information regarding your interests, or similar information.
Personal Information will only be collected when it is voluntarily provided to Good Earth. You can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in certain features of the Site.
Non-personally Identifiable Information.
When you visit the Site, we may also collect from you certain information that does not identify any individual personally, such as an IP host address, the pages viewed, the browser type, the Site usage, and other data which do not identify any individual personally (“Aggregate Information”). When your computer contacts our web servers (for example, when you visit the Site, view an HTML e-mail, or download an interactive desktop from the Site), Aggregate Information may be collected automatically. We also may determine the applicable technology available to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page, e-mail or similar service.
COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGY
In addition to cookies, the Site uses a variety of technical methods for tracking purposes, including web beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of websites. Good Earth also uses these technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on the Site, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Site.
HOW GOOD EARTH USES THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS
Personally Identifiable Information.
Except as explained below, when you share Personally Identifiable Information with Good Earth, such information is used to deliver the products you request, to keep you informed about changes affecting our products, to inform you of products, including offers from Good Earth and its affiliated companies, about which you might be interested, and to improve and enhance the Site and services. If you provide Personal Information to Good Earth, we will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect it from unauthorized disclosure.
Good Earth may, from time to time, conduct joint promotions with other companies. We may share with our promotional partners (and their service providers) certain Personal Information as necessary to conduct the promotion. We will not share this information with our promotional partners for any other purpose unless you provide us with your consent to do so.
We may combine the information we collect about you at the Site with information available to us from other sources. For example, you may provide Personal Information to us at other Good Earth websites, or our co-promoter or sponsors may provide us with information, including Personally Identifiable Information, about users who choose to participate in a promotional opportunity the co-promoter or sponsor is offering with Good Earth.
We will never disclose your Personal Information to any third party who is not affiliated with, a business partner of or a sponsor of Good Earth without your express consent, except in the following circumstances: (i) in connection with the sale or merger of Good Earth, (ii) as required by courts or administrative agencies, and (iii) to the extent required to permit us to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, the Site rules or policies, or the rights of third parties or any other suspected conduct we deem improper.
Non-Personally Identifying Information.
Good Earth may use and disclose Aggregate Information to improve and enhance your experience on the Site and for other purposes. For example, from time to time, we may use and share Aggregate Information with third parties to show general demographic and preference information among users of the Site. In these circumstances, the shared information will neither contain nor be linked to any Personally Identifiable Information.
SPECIAL NOTICE REGARDING CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OLD
Good Earth recognizes the sensitivity of Personal Information concerning children under the age of 13 and therefore provides this notice. Good Earth is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations regarding children, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), which does not allow the collection of any Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 without a parent’s or guardian’s consent. Good Earth encourages all parents and guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of their Personal Information while using the Internet.
Therefore, in compliance with COPPA, the Site is not directed to children under the age of 13. Moreover, Good Earth does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age, do not send Good Earth any information about yourself. When Good Earth becomes aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child’s parent’s or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.
The security of your Personal Information is very important to us. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and Good Earth, or information stored on the Site or our servers, will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers, and your use of the Site is at your own risk. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect, including limiting access to the Personal Information contained on our servers. Only those employees who need access to your information to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your Personal Information. Good Earth also recommends that you keep your information safe by, for example, memorizing your password or securing it in a safe place (separate from your account information), logging out of your user account, and closing your web browser once you leave the Site.
