Greenlight Guru, together with its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “Greenlight Guru,” “us,” “we,” or “our”) respects your privacy, and takes the responsibility of protecting the Personal Information (as defined herein) that you provide to us very seriously.  This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use, and disclose Personal Information we receive about individuals (collectively, “you” or “users”) using our products and/or services (our “Services”) and/or using our websites or online features (each a “Site” or collectively, our “Sites”). 

We have adopted this Privacy Policy to explain what Personal Information may be collected in connection with the use of our Sites and/or Services, the purposes for which we may use that Personal Information, and under what circumstances we may disclose Personal Information to third parties.  For purposes of compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), where applicable, we are the Controller of the Personal Information that we receive about you in connection with your use of our Sites and/or Services.

This Privacy Policy also describes your rights, where applicable, and how to exercise them.  You may contact us at any time with questions related to our Privacy Policy and the processing of Personal Information and privacy at privacy@greenlight.guru.

This Privacy Policy applies regardless of whether you use our Sites and/or Services via a computer, mobile device, or any other platform or equipment (collectively, your “Equipment”). 


A. TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED

We collect the following kinds of information about users:

(1)  Personal Information:  For purposes of this Privacy Policy, Personal Information means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.  This includes any information that may be used to directly identify or contact you, such as your name, address, or phone number.  Personal Information also includes information that may be used to indirectly identify you in combination with other readily available information, including by reference, for example, to an online identifier, location data, or an identification number. Certain information may not be Personal Information when standing alone (e.g., your age), but may become so when combined with other information (e.g., your age and address). Personal Information, as defined herein, is intended to cover all information subject to personal data processing and privacy laws applicable to our business.   

Examples of Personal Information that we may collect from or about you include, among other things, your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, business contact information, payment information, username and password, demographic information, and any other information that meets the definition of Personal Information provided herein.

(2)  Non-Personal Information:  For purposes of this Privacy Policy, Non-Personal Information is any information that does not identify an individual, and cannot be used in combination with other readily available information to identify an individual.  

(3) Device Information:  For purposes of this Privacy Policy, Device Information refers to information that may be automatically collected from devices that you use when visiting or using our Sites.  Examples of Device Information that we may collect from or about you include, among other things, IP address, device identifier, cookies, log files, and any other information that may be collected from your devices.  Under some circumstances, Device Information may constitute Personal Information (i.e., if it can be combined with other information to identify an individual).  However, Device Information does not always constitute Personal Information, and whether it does will depend on the circumstances.


B. HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

(1) General Uses: We may use the information we collect from you for the purposes described below.  When necessary to comply with applicable law, we will obtain your consent before using your Personal Information for any of these purposes:

We share only the minimum amount of Personal Information with these third-party service providers that they need to perform their tasks.  We also enter into contracts with these third-party service providers that require them to protect Personal Information.

We will share your information, including your Personal Information with law enforcement, government officials, regulatory agencies, or other parties when we are required to do so by applicable law.  We will also disclose your Personal Information to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, subpoena, or legal process.

We may use and disclose your Personal Information when necessary for our legitimate interests, including our legitimate business interests, as long as our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests, rights, and freedoms with respect to your Personal Information.
  • De-Identified Information. We may also share and otherwise process aggregated or de-identified information that does not identify you individually, and such information may be shared with other parties. For example, from time to time, we may collect survey information from you on an aggregate and/or de-identified basis. We also de-identified information for various business purposes, including the creation, marketing, and sale of products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Such information is not traceable to any particular individual and will not be used by a third party to contact you.

(2) Legal Bases for Processing:  To the extent required by applicable law, the legal bases for processing your Personal Information for the purposes described above or elsewhere in this Privacy Policy include, without limitation, that (1) you have given consent to the processing of your Personal Information for one or more specific purposes, (2) it is necessary to perform a contract with you (e.g., for the sale of goods or services) or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract; (3) it is necessary to comply with a legal obligation (such as notifying you of Privacy Policy changes); (4) it is necessary for the pursuit of our legitimate interests or those of a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of Personal Information; (5) it is necessary for your vital interests or those of another individual; and/or (6) it is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
