Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Op Green collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Op Green’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Op Green’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Op Green may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Op Green also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Op Green only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Op Green’s websites choose to interact with Op Green in ways that require Op Green to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Op Green gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. In each case, Op Green collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Op Green. Op Green does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Op Green discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Op Green’s behalf or to provide services available at Op Green’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Op Green’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Op Green will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Op Green discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Op Green believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Op Green, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Op Green website and have supplied your email address, Op Green may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Op Green and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Op Green takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
