PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated March 1, 2014

General Statement:

Evergreen Trading,  (“ET”) has implemented this Privacy Policy to provide our clients and other visitors (“collectively, “Users”) who use the website (www.evergreentrading.com) (the “Website”) with information regarding the collection and use of Information (as defined below) you provide to us or is otherwise collected in the course of using this Website so that you may make an informed decision about your use of the Website. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “you” or “your” refers to you as a User of this Website. “We”, “our” or “us” refers to ET.

Collected Information:

ET collects two types of information on this Website: (i) User Information; and (ii) Technical Information. Each of these is defined and explained below and sometimes is collectively referred to herein as “Information.”

User Information:

From time to time in the course of your use of this Website, we may ask you to provide your name, email, address, telephone number and other personal identifying information (collectively, “User Information”). You may also provide ET with third party personal information, such as first and last names, email, address, phone numbers and similar information about other individuals such as your employer, colleagues or clients. You should only provide information about another person if you have his or her permission to do so. That information will only be used for the purpose for which it was collected and will also be treated as User Information.

Technical Information: 

ET also uses cookies and web beacons (also known as “clear gifs”- small single pixel image files that can be used to recognize a user’s navigation through a website) to collect information for record keeping purposes and to make it easier to navigate the Website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on Users’ computers. For more information about cookies and web beacons, please see, www.allaboutcookies.org. ET uses both “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies.” A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. Persistent cookies stay on your computer from one session to the next and enable ET to recognize you when you return to the Website. You may choose not to receive cookies from ET by following instructions in your web browser’s “help” file, but this may make certain features of the Website inaccessible to you.

ET also collects Users’ IP addresses and basic log file information (such as browser type and language, number of clicks, domain names of web sites visited, pages viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of visits and page views). This Information, including information about cookies, is referred to as “Technical Information” in this Privacy Policy. ET uses Technical Information (and may combine it with User Information) to help locate potential problems with our server, improve and customize your experience on the Website and other purposes described in the “How We Use Your Information” section below.

How We Use Your Information:

If you provide User Information to us, then we use this Information to operate, maintain and provide the features and functionality of the Website and any products or services requested.

ET will contact you using the email address you have provided to send you messages if you have agreed to receive them, including advertising, information about changes to ET features and any special offers.

We use Technical Information, such as Website use date and IP addresses, to improve the quality and design of the Website and to create new features and services by storing, tracking and analyzing your preferences and trends. We may use such Information to : (i) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your current or subsequent visits to the Website; (ii) provide customized content and information; (iii) monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and traffic; (iv) diagnose or fix technology problems; (v) access information about you after you log onto the Website; (vi) market our Website to advertisers and other third parties; (vii) aggregate general User statistics including demographic and geographic information; and (viii) such other lawful purposes so long as your personal identity is not revealed by such use.

As part of this process, ET uses third parties to provide it with aggregated Technical Information about how Users interact with the Website and may set cookies, web beacons or other tracking technologies for this purpose. The use of cookies by our service providers (e.g., Google) is not covered by our privacy policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies.

We also have testimonials on our Website. All personal information contained in testimonials has been pre-approved by the applicable individual prior to posting on our Website. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at support@evergreen-partners.com.

We may provide Information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, subcontractors and third-parties with whom we have entered into a co-marketing, partnering or similar commercial arrangement so that such parties may, among other things, : (i) help us to provide services and/or process Information on our behalf; (ii) use the Information to offer greater functionality and enhanced services through the Website or to provide you with additional product and service opportunities; and (iii) communicate these opportunities to you on our behalf.

If your child has submitted User Information to us, please contact us as provided under the section “Contact Information” below so we can arrange to remove your child’s User Information from our database. Do not supply to us or disclose on the Website any Information of any person under 13 years of age as we do not intend to collect information from anyone under 13 or invite them to use this Website.

International Users:

The Website is hosted in the United States.

Our Commitment to Data Security:

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the User Information submitted to us both during transmission and once we receive it.
