Privacy Statement

Green Shoe Garage (hereafter referred to as “GSG”) respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information,this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.

Information Collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to: first and last name, email address, home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, and other information when needed to provide a service you requested.

When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish GSG to remember your login and password. We don’t automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do use Google Analytics to collect anonymized data to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there, but we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website. Like many other commercial websites, the GSG website may from time-to-time use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to “Cookies and Tracking Information” below for more information.

GSG collects personal information if you register for a GSG account, when you use certain GSG online products or services, or when you submit your personal information to GSG for any other reason.

Access to certain GSG web pages may require a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and GSG. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by GSG to verify compliance with the agreement or to track usage of other services available on those pages.

When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. GSG will not transfer your personal information to third parties.

All changes to data collection practices will be done so as an “opt in” explicitly granted by you. If you should ever change your mind for any reason we will always give you the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection.

Cookies and Tracking Technology

A cookie is a small data file that certain Web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of GSG’s website use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the usefulness of our website information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information.

If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of GSG’s website if you do so. In particular, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website. You do not need to have cookies turned on, however, to use/navigate through many parts of our website, except access to certain of GSG’s web pages may require a login and password.

How We Use Information Collected

GSG uses information for several general purposes: to fulfill your requests for certain products and services; to personalize your experience on our website; to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements; software updates; special offers or other information we think you’d like to hear. We will never sell or share your information to any third-party entity.


Data Security

Your GSG account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. GSG safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. In certain areas of our websites, GSG uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.

Children and Privacy

Our websites do not target and are not intended to attract children under the age of 13. GSG does not knowingly solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 or send them requests for personal information.

Third Party Sites

GSG’s website contains links to other sites. GSG does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.

Our website may contain links to websites operated by other companies. Some of these third-party sites may be co-branded with a GSG logo, even though they are not operated or maintained by GSG. Although we choose our business partners carefully, GSG is not responsible for the privacy practices of websites operated by third parties that are linked to our site. Once you have left our website, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third party website to determine how they will handle any information they collect from you.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

GSG will amend this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information, we will make that information available by posting a notice on this site.
