Security of Information
The Green Guys take security seriously and take numerous precautions to protect the security of Personally Identifiable Information.
If you have created a The Green Guys account, you can access your Personally Identifiable Information on our site through a password and your email address. This password is encrypted. The Green Guys recommend that you do not share your password with anyone.
In addition, your Personally Identifiable Information resides on a secure server that only selected personnel and contractors have access to. The Green Guys encrypt certain sensitive information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure that your Personally Identifiable Information is safe as it is transmitted to us.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while The Green Guys employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, The Green Guys cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the site, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.
Types of Information Collected and Uses of Collected Information
The Green Guys collect two types of information about our site Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies a specific End User. When you engage in certain activities on the site, such as creating an account, ordering a product or service from us or our partners, submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums, entering a contest or stakes sponsored by us or our partners, filling out a survey, posting a review, sending us or our partners feedback, requesting information about our services, submitting an affiliate agreement, applying for a job, posting a video or signing up for special offers from third parties through the site (collectively, “Identification Activities”), The Green Guys may ask you to provide certain information about yourself.
It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity. If you elect to engage in an Identification Activity, The Green Guys may ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your first and last name, gender, mailing address (including post code), email address, telephone number and date of birth.
When you order products or services, The Green Guys may also ask you to provide us with your credit card number, expiration date and authentication codes or related information.
Depending on the activity, some of the information The Green Guys ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity.
In addition, if you use our site to send information or a product to another person, The Green Guys may store your personal information, and the personal information of any recipient. The Green Guys may use that other person’s contact information to allow him or her to view and accept your gift or to allow the recipient to access the information you requested The Green Guys send.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that does not identify a specific End User.
This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the site you visited before coming to our site, the URL of the site you visit after leaving our site, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.
The Green Guys use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer the site, analyse trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities.
The Green Guys may also share this information with our authorised third party service providers and advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.
Release of Non-Personally Identifiable Information
The Green Guys may disclose or share Non-Personally Identifiable Information with Partners, Affiliates and Advertisers.
For example, The Green Guys may share aggregated demographic information (which does not include any Personally Identifiable Information) with third party advertisers or third party advertising companies and other parties as provided below:

From time to time, The Green Guys provide offers from particular merchants (referred to as “The Green Guys Merchants”) who, as part of the offer, request information on The Green Guys customers who purchased the offer.

Sharing this Information will allow a The Green Guys Merchant to market directly to you should they choose to do so.
The Green Guys will only share Personally Identifiable Information with a The Green Guys Merchant if you engage in an Identification Activity, and then only to the The Green Guys Merchant involved in that Identification Activity.
The Green Guys specifically disclaim any responsibility or liability for the actions of such The Green Guys Merchant. While The Green Guys will inform them that they are only permitted to communicate with you for the purposes of the specific promotion with The Green Guys, The Green Guys do not have any responsibility for the actions of the The Green Guys Merchant, and the actions of the The Green Guys Merchant are not in our control.
The Green Guys may share your information with authorised third party service providers.
The Green Guys provide some of our services and products through third parties. These third party service providers perform functions on our behalf, like sending out and distributing our administrative and promotional emails.
