Protecting your information is a priority for Greener Matters, we will take reasonable steps to protect the security and integrity of all Personal Information provided to this Web Site. No transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under the control of Greener Matters to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your personal information, Greener Matters cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Any such transmission is done at your own risk.

You may be able to create an account on our Web Site with a username and password. If so, you are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your account password, and you shall be responsible for any access to or use of the Web Site by you or any person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorised by or on behalf of you, and whether or not such person or entity is your employee or agent. You agree to:
1. Immediately notify Greener Matters of any unauthorised use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and
2. Ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session.

If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail. You consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification.
With identity theft a continuing problem, it has become increasingly common for unauthorised individuals to send e-mail messages to consumers, purporting to represent a legitimate company such as a bank or on-line merchant, requesting that the consumer provide personal, often sensitive information. Sometimes, the domain name of the e-mail address from which the e-mail appears to have been sent, and the domain name of the web site requesting such information, appears to be the domain name of a legitimate, trusted company. In reality, such sensitive information is received by an unauthorized individual to be used for purposes of identity theft. This illegal activity has come to be known as “phishing.”
If you receive an e-mail or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your Web Site password or credit card information) via e-mail or to a web site that does not seem to be affiliated with our Web Site, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not provide such information, and report such request to us by emailing email@example.com
