Privacy Policy

Good Earth Teas, Inc (“we” or “Good Earth”) has created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy. This policy sets forth how Good Earth collects, protects, uses and shares information about you in connection only with the website located at www.goodearth.com (the “Site”) and does not apply to any other Good Earth website or service. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, you may not access or otherwise use this Site. We also direct you to our Terms of Conditions and Use statement, which governs your use of the Site.

INFORMATION GOOD EARTH COLLECTS

Personally Identifiable Information.

When using the Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”), which is information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally. Personal Information can include by way of example and not by limitation your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or mobile telephone number, and date of birth. For example, we may collect Personal Information when you request Good Earth news, if you choose to enter a Good Earth contest or sweepstakes or we seek feedback from you about the Site or Good Earth products in the form of a questionnaire or survey. We may also ask you to create a screen name and/or a password, where applicable, and provide us with demographic information (such as information about your age or gender), information regarding your interests, or similar information.

Personal Information will only be collected when it is voluntarily provided to Good Earth. You can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in certain features of the Site.

Non-personally Identifiable Information.

When you visit the Site, we may also collect from you certain information that does not identify any individual personally, such as an IP host address, the pages viewed, the browser type, the Site usage, and other data which do not identify any individual personally (“Aggregate Information”). When your computer contacts our web servers (for example, when you visit the Site, view an HTML e-mail, or download an interactive desktop from the Site), Aggregate Information may be collected automatically. We also may determine the applicable technology available to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page, e-mail or similar service.

COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGY

The Site may use browser “cookies.” Cookies are pieces of information that may be placed on your computer by a website for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with a particular website. We may use cookies to customize your visit to the Site and for other purposes to make your visit more convenient or to enable us to enhance our service. For example, we may use cookies to track usage patterns on the Site or to analyze web activity. You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer or remove them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences. If you do so, you may still use the Site, but you may not have access to certain of the Site’s features, and some features of the Site may not function properly. We do not use cookies to automatically retrieve Personal Information from your computer without your knowledge.

In addition to cookies, the Site uses a variety of technical methods for tracking purposes, including web beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of websites. Good Earth also uses these technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on the Site, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Site.

HOW GOOD EARTH USES THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS

Personally Identifiable Information.

Except as explained below, when you share Personally Identifiable Information with Good Earth, such information is used to deliver the products you request, to keep you informed about changes affecting our products, to inform you of products, including offers from Good Earth and its affiliated companies, about which you might be interested, and to improve and enhance the Site and services. If you provide Personal Information to Good Earth, we will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect it from unauthorized disclosure.

Good Earth may, from time to time, conduct joint promotions with other companies. We may share with our promotional partners (and their service providers) certain Personal Information as necessary to conduct the promotion. We will not share this information with our promotional partners for any other purpose unless you provide us with your consent to do so.

We may combine the information we collect about you at the Site with information available to us from other sources. For example, you may provide Personal Information to us at other Good Earth websites, or our co-promoter or sponsors may provide us with information, including Personally Identifiable Information, about users who choose to participate in a promotional opportunity the co-promoter or sponsor is offering with Good Earth.

We will never disclose your Personal Information to any third party who is not affiliated with, a business partner of or a sponsor of Good Earth without your express consent, except in the following circumstances: (i) in connection with the sale or merger of Good Earth, (ii) as required by courts or administrative agencies, and (iii) to the extent required to permit us to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, the Site rules or policies, or the rights of third parties or any other suspected conduct we deem improper.

Non-Personally Identifying Information.

Good Earth may use and disclose Aggregate Information to improve and enhance your experience on the Site and for other purposes. For example, from time to time, we may use and share Aggregate Information with third parties to show general demographic and preference information among users of the Site. In these circumstances, the shared information will neither contain nor be linked to any Personally Identifiable Information.

SPECIAL NOTICE REGARDING CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OLD

Good Earth recognizes the sensitivity of Personal Information concerning children under the age of 13 and therefore provides this notice. Good Earth is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations regarding children, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), which does not allow the collection of any Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 without a parent’s or guardian’s consent. Good Earth encourages all parents and guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of their Personal Information while using the Internet.

Therefore, in compliance with COPPA, the Site is not directed to children under the age of 13. Moreover, Good Earth does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age, do not send Good Earth any information about yourself. When Good Earth becomes aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child’s parent’s or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

OPT-OUT POLICY

If you wish for us to remove your Personally Identifiable Information from our active records, please go to the “Click here to unsubscribe” link that appears at the bottom of the email communication you may receive from us. Please be aware that we will process your request within a reasonable time after receipt. You should also be aware that we are not responsible for removing your Personal Information from the lists of any third party who has previously been provided with your information in accordance with this policy, such as a business partner. In addition, your ability to opt-out from receiving marketing and promotional material does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of the Site or changes to our Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions of Use statement or other policy or terms that affect you and your use of the Site.

USER FORUMS

Please review our restrictions on use and guidelines for user forums in our Terms and Conditions of Use statement. In addition, please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you may disclose publicly in user forums (such as chat rooms, bulletin boards, or similar web pages). You should be aware that whenever you publicly disclose information about yourself online, including uploading of information to the Site, that information could be collected and used by people you do not know. In addition, certain message boards (and similar user forums) may display IP addresses along with the message poster’s name and message. Good Earth bears no responsibility for any action or policies of any third party who collects any information users may disclose in user forums or other public areas, if any, on the Site.

SECURITY

The security of your Personal Information is very important to us. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and Good Earth, or information stored on the Site or our servers, will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers, and your use of the Site is at your own risk. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect, including limiting access to the Personal Information contained on our servers. Only those employees who need access to your information to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your Personal Information. Good Earth also recommends that you keep your information safe by, for example, memorizing your password or securing it in a safe place (separate from your account information), logging out of your user account, and closing your web browser once you leave the Site.

Good Earth is not responsible for the practices or the content of other such websites, expressly disclaims any statements or assertions made on such websites, including without limitation, any failure on the part of any linked websites to comply with any privacy policy posted on the website, and denies all liability associated with your use of, and the content on, other such sites.
