We don't track you.
Most websites include embedded code from Google, Facebook or Amazon either for website analytics, Google Maps, Facebook widgets, and many more purposes that involve collecting your data, the websites you visit, what you purchase online, who you bank with, your age, race & gender, how much you earn and pretty much your entire digital life.
The GGVC and thegreendirectory.net do not include any tracking scripts from these global ad-networks. Instead we use open source, self-hosted, privacy respecting tools, such as OpenStreetMaps for mapping and Matomo for providing insights into how our visitors use the website.
We only collect essential personal data from our users in order to provide a service – such as managing subscriptions, placing orders, processing payments and making deliveries.
We do not share or sell user data to any 3rd party.
