This page states the Privacy Policy under which you, the Web Site visitor ("You" or “Your” or “Yourself”) may use or correspond with this Web site (“Our Site”), which is owned by the U.S. Green Building Council North Texas Chapter, Inc. (“We” or “Us” or “Our”).

We respect Your privacy interests and operate this site by these principles.  We have taken reasonable steps to protect the integrity and confidentiality of personally identifiable information that You may provide.


You may use the USGBC North Texas Web site without disclosing personally identifiable information, and We will not obtain such information about You unless You choose to submit it to us.  Any information You submit will be used internally only; however, submission of information authorizes such internal use by Us and Our employees.  In particular, please note that submission of an e-mail authorizes Us to contact You via e-mail.


Please note that We use “cookies,” which are small files stored on Your computer’s hard drive that are used to track certain information.  These cookies enable Us to track and target the interests of Our users to enhance their experience on Our site.  For example, cookies usually allow Your browser to remember which pages You have visited and help Us to know how much traffic Our pages receive.  This process does not reveal any personal information about the person viewing the page (such as a username or password) unless the person has previously given such information.  If You find cookies objectionable, please consult Your browser’s documentation for information on how to block or erase cookies.


In addition, Our Web server collects and saves the default information customarily logged by World Wide Web server software.  Our logs contain the following information for each request:  date, time, originating IP address and domain name, object requested, and completion status of the request.  We use these logs to help improve Our service by evaluating the level of demand for Our site and detecting any errors on the site that might occur.  These logs may be kept for an indefinite length of time and used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches and protect the integrity of the data on Our servers.


Any information We gather, whether submitted voluntarily or collected automatically, will be used for Our internal purposes only.  Billing information is collected through a secure server and is not shared with other organizations other than the credit card issuing entity.  Your credit card number is not retained once Your transaction has been authorized and processed.  It is Our policy not to disclose or to sell any user information to third parties.  We retain the right to disclose collected information if required to do so by law or if acting on a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to protect Our rights or property or to respond to an emergency situation.

USGBC-NT partners with third-party service providers to host our website and online community. Third-party service providers are not permitted to use or share any personally identifiable information that we provide to them. USGBC-NT does not share any of the personally identifiable information we collect with other outside parties.


Because we care about the safety and privacy of children online, we comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulation establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children. It is possible that by fraud or deception we may receive information pertaining to children. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the notification, we will immediately obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children, please contact us.
