Privacy Policy


Updated November 6, 2020

General Statement:

Evergreen-Partners, LLC d/b/a 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) that we collect either through the Website or in our other business operations. 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.” In its business operations, ET collects certain Personal Information concerning its employees and business contacts. ET does not generally collect Personal Information from or concerning consumers. In this regard, Personal Information means any information that can reasonably identify an individual or household, as defined under relevant law.

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.

Web Analytics: 

ET may use Google Analytics to collect information about your use of the Website. Google Analytics collects certain information, such as how often you visit the Website, the pages you visit, and the other websites you use prior to visiting the Website. ET may use the information received from Google Analytics to improve the Website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Website, rather than your name or other identifying information. ET does not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with any other information collected from you. Although Google Analytics stores a permanent cookie on your machine to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use available at http://www.google.com/analytics/tos.html and the Google Privacy Policy available at http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.
