The information we learn from visitors helps us personalize and continually improve your experience at greenbeings.com.

GB collects information from users in the following ways:
- When registering with GB
- Purchases on third party websites accessed through the GB site

The GB website may use the IP (Internet Protocol) addresses of visitors to the site to administer the site, track users' movements, and to gather broad demographic information. However, IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information and therefore the information and statistics the GB produces does not enable individual users to be identified.

We will only collect information by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.

Does anyone other than the GB collect information from the GB website?
Except as stated in this Policy or unless you are informed at the time of collection of information, only GB collects personal information from the GB website.
Does the GB share user information?
GB will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to any third party. In the event that we co-organise or co-host a specific event with a third party, and you register for that event online, the information that you enter when you register, and only that information, may be shared with that third party if we inform you prior to online registration that we will do so. The only other circumstance in which a third party will have access to your personally identifiable information is where that third party is managing and/or maintaining GBs member database, or sending communications from the GB, on behalf of and as an agent for GB. In that circumstance at all times GB will maintain effective control over the use of your personal information and ensure that it is used only in accordance with this policy.
