4.The Information We Collect

 

The types of personal information we collect and process about you can include:

 

  • Personal identifiers, such as your first and last name, email address, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, unique device identifiers, marketing preferences, and correspondence;

  • Internet or other electronic network activity information, including browsing history and search history, and information regarding your interaction with a website application; and

We collect such personal information directly from you when you visit the Site, submit feedback forms, or when you otherwise contact us.

 

You are not required to provide all personal information identified in this Privacy Policy to use our Site or to interact with us, but certain functionality will not be available if you do not provide certain personal information. For example, if you do not provide certain personal information, we may not be able to respond to your requests or provide you with marketing information that we believe you would find valuable.     

 

5. Cookies

 

A cookie is a small string of information that a website that you visit transfers to your browser for identification purposes. Cookies can be used to follow your activity while using a website or across websites, and that information helps companies understand your preferences and tendencies, as well as improve and personalize your website experience. Some cookies are necessary to operate a website, while others can be functional, analytical, or used for targeted advertising (as discussed in more detail below). More information about cookies and how they work is available at www.allaboutcookies.org.

 

Cookies on our Site are generally divided into the following categories:

 

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies: These are required for the operation of our Site.  They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas.  These cookies are session cookies that are erased when you close your browser.

  • Analytical/Performance Cookies: These allow us to recognize and count the number of users on the Site and understand how such users navigate through the Site (e.g., when and which pages are visited, in what order the pages are visited, how long a user may stay on a particular page, and where a user is located).  This helps to improve how the Site works, for example, by ensuring that users can find what they are looking for easily.  These cookies are session cookies which are erased when you close your browser. For example, we use Google Analytics for this process. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ and www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html. You can opt-out of Google Analytics' collection and use of data generated by your use of the Site by going to http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.           

 

Device Information

 

Similar to cookies, we may automatically collect certain information about the device you use to access the Site. For example, we may collect and analyze information such as IP addresses, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser types, browser language, operating system, the state or country from which you accessed the Site, and other information about your mobile phone or other device(s). In addition to analytical purposes, this information helps us diagnose problems with our server, administer the Site, and display the content according to your preferences.

 

Do Not Track

 

CarbonBuilt respects your privacy, but we do not alter the information we collect or change the Site upon receiving “do-not-track” (DNT) signals, as the term appears in Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §§ 22575(b)(5). For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.

 

6. Children’s Privacy

 

The Site is not intended for users under the age of 13. We do not knowingly or intentionally gather personal information about individuals who are under the age of 13. If you are aware of, or suspect that, someone under the age of 13 is using the Site without permission, please notify us immediately by contacting us as specified below. If you have questions or concerns about the Internet and privacy for your child, we encourage you to review the FTC Guidelines for protecting your child’s privacy online.

Further information may be provided to you in a separate notice or may be obtained from such service providers directly, for example, via their websites;

10. How We Store and Safeguard Your Information

We maintain reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect personal information from loss, misuse, alteration, or unintentional destruction. Your personal information is only accessible, on a need to know basis, by a limited number of employees who have special permissions. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information as it is transmitted to us. To the extent permitted under applicable law, we assume no liability or responsibility for disclosure of your information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized access by third-parties, or other causes beyond our control.

 

11. Third-Party Links

 

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, we may choose various third-party websites (e.g., through our blog posts) to link to within our Site. We have no control over these linked sites, each of which has separate privacy and data collection practices independent from us. As such, we have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any such websites.
