Privacy

Privacy Policy:

Home Depot ("Home Depot") operates ghostdepot.com and may operate other websites. It is Home Depot's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Home Depot collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Home Depot's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Home Depot's visitors use its website. From time to time, Home Depot may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Home Depot also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on ghostdepot.com blogs/sites. Home Depot only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Home Depot's websites choose to interact with Home Depot in ways that require Home Depot to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Home Depot gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at ghostdepot.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Home Depot are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Home Depot collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Home Depot. Home Depot does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Home Depot may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Home Depot may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Home Depot does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Home Depot discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Home Depot's behalf or to provide services available at Home Depot's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Home Depot's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Home Depot will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Home Depot discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Home Depot believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Home Depot, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Home Depot website and have supplied your email address, Home Depot may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Home Depot and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Home Depot takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Home Depot visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Home Depot's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Home Depot's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Home Depot, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Home Depot goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Home Depot may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Home Depot and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Home Depot may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Home Depot's sole discretion. Home Depot encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a ghostdepot.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes.
