Green Making Policies
Green Making provides local community for building green homes. Our goal is to connect people at the local and regional level who share an interest in developing, maintaining, and restoring a green built environment. This includes both structures and the outside environment around them.
It is our purpose to make this a safe, practical, and effective place for people to meet and work on their green building goals. In using our services, you must follow the policies we publish for that service. And generally, we ask you to follow these guidelines.
- Treat others with respect.
- Treat our site and services with respect.
- Treat the community with respect.
We are committed to respecting our members. That includes keeping your information private and avoiding unnecessary intrusion in your live. Please view our Privacy and Data Retention Policy page for more information on the types of data we collect, how we use the data, our retention and disclosure policies, data security, your rights, and other pertinent information.
Green Making uses a demand pull model of communication. Where most services use an information push model, inundating you with advertisements for things you might possibly want sometime in the future, Green Making makes support available for you to find resources when you need them.
Please join us in treating others with respect. Green Making reserves the right to terminate access to anyone who places inappropriate content on our site or harrasses other members. New accounts are granted to those who request them subject to our determining the user physically resides in one of our service areas, currently the United States of America.

This includes any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs or attorney's fees.
Respecting the Community
Green Making provides this website and our services to enhance the green building community. In return, we expect community members to authentically want to participate in the community in ways that improve the quality of our environment. Dishonesty and exploitation are specifically prohibited. Any entity that tries to take advantage of the community in any way inconsistent with our purpose will be excluded.
