6. Information Uses, Sharing, & Disclosure
When you access or use the Services, we collect, use, share, and otherwise process your personal information as described in this policy. We rely on a number of legal bases to use your information in these ways. These legal bases include where:
You have consented to the processing, which you can revoke at any time;
Necessary to comply with a legal obligation, a court order, or to exercise or defend legal claims;
Necessary for the purposes of our or a third party’s legitimate interests, such as those of visitors, members, or partners;
You have expressly made the information public;
Necessary in the public interest; and
Occasionally necessary to protect your vital interests or those of others.
We may disclose personal information in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We may also disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request.
Note that we principally rely on consent (i) to send marketing messages, (ii) for third-party data sharing related to advertising, and, to the extent applicable, (iii) for the use of location data for advertising purposes.
We rely on consent for targeted online and offline marketing including through tools like Facebook Custom Audience and Google Customer Match. We or our sellers may advertise our Services or our sellers’ products through a variety of different mediums and rely on your consent to do so off-site. As part of this, we may work with advertising partners such as Facebook, Google, and other partners disclosed in our Cookies and Similar Technology Policy.
Keeping our Services Safe and Secure: We may also use your information for safety and security purposes, including sharing of your information for such purposes, and we do so because it is necessary to pursue our legitimate interests in ensuring the security of our Services. This includes enhancing protection of our community against spam, harassment, intellectual property infringement, crime, and security risks of all kind.
We respect your privacy. Green Living Soap will not disclose your name, email address, or other personal information to third parties without your consent, except as specified in this policy.
We use your information to provide and improve the Services and our products, for billing and payments, for identification and authentication, and for general research and aggregate reporting.
If Green Living Soap receives a lawful, verified request for a member’s records or information in one of the limited circumstances described in the previous paragraph, Green Living Soap may disclose personal information, which may include, but may not be limited to, a member’s name, address, phone number, email address, and company name.
Service Providers: Green Living Soap also needs to engage third-party companies and individuals (such as payment processors, research companies, and analytics and security providers) to help us operate, provide, and market the Services. These third parties have only limited access to your information, may use your information only to perform these tasks on our behalf, and are obligated to Green Living Soap not to disclose or use your information for other purposes. Our engagement of service providers is often necessary for us to provide the Services to you, particularly where such companies play important roles like processing payments and shipments and helping us keep our Service operating and secure. In some other cases, these service providers aren’t strictly necessary for us to provide the Services, but help us make it better, like by helping us conduct research into how we could better serve our users. In these latter cases, we have a legitimate interest in working with service providers to make our Services better.
We can speak only for ourselves; this policy does not apply to the practices of third parties (such as other members who sell using the Services) that Green Living Soap does not own or control or individuals that Green Living Soap does not employ or manage. If you provide your information to such third parties in connection with your use of the Services, different practices may apply to the use or disclosure of the information that you provide to them. While Green Living Soap requires these third parties to follow Green Living Soap’s privacy and security requirements, Green Living Soap does not control the privacy or security policies of such third parties.

Whilst we strive to protect your information from misuse, loss or unauthorized access, we cannot guarantee the security of information you transmit or receive from our online products. These activities are conducted at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure security.
Green Living Soap will retain your information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this policy, for as long as your account is active, as described in this policy, or as needed to provide the Services to you. If you no longer want Green Living Soap to use your information to provide the Services to you, you may close your account.

Please note that closing your account may not free up your email address, username, or shop name (if any) for reuse on a new account. We also retain log files for internal analysis purposes. These log files are generally retained for a brief period of time, except in cases where they are used for site safety and security, to improve site functionality, or we are legally obligated to retain them for longer time periods.
