Privacy

We only collect information that we believe can help you accurately offset the carbon impact of your online orders. If you choose to register as a member, you can provide your name, email, and other general profile information. Like most other web services, EcoCart collects technical information about your device and how you use EcoCart to make sure that our products are working right, to help calculate the carbon emissions generated by your order(s), and to detect and prevent fraud. 

We will do not and will never sell your data. Unlike other online shopping browser extensions, we’re in the business of saving the planet, not violating your privacy. We promise to never give your data to third-parties. We’ll only use your data in ways you’d expect, like improving our customer experience, which we explain in our privacy policy.

Letter from the founders

EcoCart is on a mission to make the fight against climate change easy and accessible so that everyone can do their part. We built this browser extension for you to play a role in our fight against climate change. We built this browser extension because we, as consumers, wanted this to exist in the world. Before you “read” our privacy policy, we think it’s important to hear directly from us on how we think about privacy and your data.

First and foremost, we do not sell your personal information. Ever.

EcoCart works to make your online orders carbon neutral. We do this by partnering with brands and merchants so that whenever you use EcoCart while shopping with them, we earn a small commission, then buy carbon offsets on your behalf. We also pass along a portion of the commission to you in the form of EcoPoints, which you can use to redeem Earth-saving rewards such as planting trees or clean water to families in need. Or you can use your EcoPoints just like cash and redeem them for gift cards to your favorite stores.

The rest of the commission we keep for salaries for our team, server costs, and just to keep the lights on. That’s how we make money. Not by selling your data – ever. 

Our stance on privacy is simple: We don’t collect any personal information other than what is absolutely necessary for the calculation of your order’s carbon footprint.
