Privacy Policy

Evergrade PRIVACY POLICY

Evergrade is dedicated to helping reduce the environmental impact of product purchases by encouraging the more thoughtful behavior by the companies that manufacture those products.  Therefore Evergrade strives to behave in a similarly conscientious way. Transparency is important in manufacturing and in our business as well, so when it comes to privacy, we want to ensure that  you remain in control of your own information at all times.

We’ve drafted our privacy policy to ensure it clearly states and protects your privacy rights. Please contact us at info@Evergrade.com if you have any questions about this privacy policy or any ideas for how we can improve it.

Thanks- The Evergrade Team

Updated June 2021

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for the Evergrade website (Evergrade.com).

This policy will notify you of the following:

  • What choices are available to you regarding the use and public display of your data.
  • The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  • How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
  • What information is transmitted from you in using the website, how it is used and with whom it may and may not be shared.

This policy only applies to information provided through:

  • The Evergrade website
  • In E-mail or other electronic messages between you and Evergrade

This policy does not apply to information collected offline or through other means, including on any other website or application operated by any third party (including any businesses listed on Evergrade, Evergrade affiliates, partner organizations, non-profit organizations or any other websites accessed through the Evergrade website).

INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, AND SHARING

We do NOT sell your contact information (such as your name, phone number, and email address) to anyone without your consent.

We will not share any personally identifiable information with any third party outside of our organization without your consent, other than as necessary to fulfill a purchase order, request or inquiry from you.

Like most e-commerce sites, we see the gifts you select and the purchases you make through Evergrade associated with your email address. We may use your purchasing history and personal information to improve and personalize your experience, better match the selection of products we offer to the type of products you and other Evergrade users prefer, otherwise improve the Evergrade platform, serve you to the best of our ability and/or to respond to you regarding a reason you have contacted us.

We also collect aggregate, data on the overall usage of the Evergrade website (for example, total clicks on particular features, or total clicks on a particular Evergrade-reviewed company, overall dollars directed to brands that are manufacturing products with a lower environmental footprint, etc.) to demonstrate the impact the Evergrade community as a whole is making, and to help us learn what our user community may like most or not like very much about the products we carry so we can make them better. 

We also collect aggregate, anonymized data on overall website usage including metrics like which business categories, features, and buttons on our website are being clicked on, and what search terms are being searched for on our website (again this data is not collected in a way that can identify you individually), so we can continue to improve our products and make sure we are adapting to the preferences of our user community. We also see generalized data on our overall user community’s basic demographic information (such as age and gender).

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email or other channels in the future to tell you about upcoming events and activities, new products or services, or other matters. We hope these messages are useful and interesting. However, you may opt out of any future contact from us at any time.

YOUR ACCESS TO AND CONTROL OVER INFORMATION

You can always unsubscribe from future emails or other communications from us by contacting us at info@Evergrade.com or through other email addresses or links provided on our website or in email communications.

Please also contact us at info@Evergrade.com if you would like to:

  • See what data we have about you
  • Change/update any data we have about you
  • Ask us to delete any data we have about you
  • Express any concern you have about the use of your data or our privacy policy

REGISTRATION

In order to use all features of the Evergrade website, a user may need to create an account on Evergrade. The features that require registration are only those that are specific to each user and therefore necessarily must have a personal sign in, such as a personal profile page, ratings of products (we require sign-in to rate products because we don’t want anonymous product ratings, as they tend to be less helpful and less accurate, and are more likely to be spam, be vulgar, or otherwise not be useful ratings) and earning discounts (we need to know it’s you that got the discount you may have earned). During registration, a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address), or register through a social media site such as Facebook. Third-party social media platforms such as Facebook require different and specific information when you login through their platform. Though we specify clearly what information is being used from your social media profiles, the privacy policies of the third party governs the specific data transactions in those instances. The information provided during registration may be used to contact you. Again, you can always opt out of any contact by emailing info@Evergrade.com.

SECURITY

We take security seriously and work hard to protect your information. However, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. By using the Evergrade website you acknowledge that online activity inherently puts individuals at risk of hackers and other security breaches, and you agree that you are using our services at your own risk.

Only employees who need your information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service or data management) will be granted access to personally identifiable information. All other staff members can only access your data in an anonymized internal format (for example, your passwords and private login information are internally encrypted so as to assure maximum privacy).

CHILDREN

Evergrade is intended for general audiences and is not directed to children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personal information from any children under 13. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information without parental consent, please contact us at info@Evergrade.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, we will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.

The Evergrade website may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of those or any other sites.
