How Your Personal Information is Protected
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Greenlight strives to protect your personally identifiable information, it cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to it, and you do so at your own risk. Once Greenlight receives your transmission, it makes its best effort within the Greenlight Site to ensure the security of the information on Greenlight's systems. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, Greenlight has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information it collects online from visitors to the Site. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that users transmit to the Site. We are not liable for any breach of our systems or interception of our transmission, and we hereby fully disclaim, to the fullest extent possible under law, any liability associated with any claim relating to a breach of security, data or information.
