Our websites may feature applications that allow you to arrange shipments, which would necessitate you providing us with third-party personal data to facilitate such a shipment. In these cases, you affirm to Green Box Containers that you have procured all necessary third-party consents for the processing of such personal data as required by the shipment.
Green Box Containers may employ your personal data in multiple ways, including:
For advancing its legitimate interest in enhancing its business practices, Green Box Containers will collect and process your personal data for the following aims:
Finally, Green Box Containers may be obligated to collect and process personal data to fulfill legally mandated reporting, disclosure, and other legal requirements.
To pursue the objectives delineated in this Policy, Green Box Containers may need to share specific personal data with subsidiaries and affiliates in various jurisdictions (which may also act as data controllers), with service providers (for example, those needed for the operation of the Websites, credit card clearinghouses, transport companies, etc.), and other third parties, including government agencies and marketing entities. We limit the sharing of personal data to the necessary extent to operate our websites and carry out the activities referenced in this Policy.
In limited circumstances, where allowed by applicable law, we may share or transfer personal data to unrelated third parties. For instance, we may provide personal data to a third party (i) upon your request; (ii) to meet a legal requirement or court order; (iii) to investigate a potential crime, such as identity theft; (iv) in association with the sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation, or dissolution; or (v) under similar circumstances. If such an event takes place, we will take the necessary steps to safeguard your personal data.
Green Box Containers takes adequate measures to ascertain that its employees, affiliates, and third-party service providers are bound by confidentiality obligations. If necessary, Green Box Containers implements actions such as EU standard contractual clauses to ensure any personal data that is transferred remains safeguarded and secure.
We do engage in e-mail marketing activities. If you have shared your e-mail or other personal data with us while using our websites, we will seek your consent to send you e-mail marketing material, except if you are an existing customer and the law does not require such permission. We will include an “unsubscribe” link in every electronic communication to allow you to inform us whether you wish to receive such communications in the future.
Green Box Containers implements suitable technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk. We have in place generally accepted information security techniques to prevent unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to the personal data we collect. These measures encompass policies, procedures, firewalls, access control procedures, and cryptographic methods relating to personal data access controls. However, no security measure or mode of data transmission over the Internet is entirely secure. Although we endeavor to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee absolute security.
Certain web browsers offer a “Do Not Track” function that informs websites visited that the user does not wish their online behavior to be monitored. Because there is no standard method for browsers to deliver the “Do Not Track” message, our websites presently do not acknowledge, adjust to, or modify their procedures when they receive such signals.
Our website is not designed for use by individuals under the age of 13. We deliberately avoid gathering, using, or disclosing personal information from individuals under 13. If you are below 13, please refrain from accessing or utilizing the website.
The presence of any external link on our websites does not denote our approval of that website or the entity (including its offerings) to which the link directs. We do not manage these linked websites. Unless otherwise noted, this Policy solely pertains to personal data gathered on our websites. We disclaim any responsibility or liability linked to these other websites.

The legal justification for gathering and using the personal data outlined above will be determined by the specific personal data in question and the context in which we gather it, as detailed below.
The provision of your personal data is voluntary, thus it is based on your consent. However, if you fail to provide this data, we may be unable to supply the information you’ve requested. You maintain the right to revoke your consent at any time, without influencing the legality of processing based on consent prior to its withdrawal.
We may process your personal data if it’s necessary for our legitimate interests, provided that your individual rights don’t supersede those interests. For instance, it may be essential to process personal data for our legitimate interests of understanding you as a user of our websites, or to offer you, a potential customer, products or services that meet your requirements.
The processing of personal data might be necessary for entering into or providing services under a contract with you.
Your personal data may be processed to fulfill legal obligations that we must comply with. This might include any mandate to produce audited financial records, any legal obligation to disclose information to law enforcement agencies, public or government authorities, or to comply with legal proceedings.
In the event that you or we initiate a legal claim, your personal data may be processed in relation to that claim.

The CCPA defines “personal information” as information that identifies, relates to, or could be reasonably linked with a particular California resident or household. Publicly available, deidentified or aggregated information is not included as personal information. In this “Notice for California Residents” section, we will refer to this information as “Personal Information.”
There is an exception in the CCPA relevant to us. Several privacy rights under the CCPA don’t apply to personal information reflecting a written or verbal communication or a transaction between us and a consumer, where the consumer is acting on behalf of an entity (as an employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor) and the communication or transaction is solely within the context of conducting due diligence or providing/receiving a product or service to/from such entity.
As a California resident, you have the right to ask us to disclose the Personal Information we’ve collected about you in the 12 months prior to your request. This includes the right to request any or all of the following:
We collected the aforementioned Personal Information for the following business or commercial purposes:
As mentioned, some of the CCPA’s privacy rights discussed here do not apply to the Personal Information listed above because of the CCPA’s business-to-business exemption.
Area of Personal Information
Type of Third Parties to Whom Information was Disclosed
Identifiers (name, postal address, email address)
Service providers and vendors (e.g., email, hosting, maintenance, backup, analysis, etc.)
Professional or employment-related information
Cookies, beacons, pixel tags, or other similar technology
Data analytics provider and advertising network
Internet protocol address
We do not intentionally gather or sell the Personal Information of minors under 16 years of age.
If you’re a resident of California, you have the right to request that we delete the Personal Information about you that we’ve collected. However, according to the CCPA, we’re not obliged to comply with a deletion request if it’s necessary for us to maintain the Personal Information in order to, for example, finalize a transaction, detect security incidents, comply with a legal obligation, or use the Personal Information internally in a lawful manner that aligns with the context in which you provided the information.
If we find that your request is subject to an exemption or exception, we will inform you of our decision. If we determine that your request is not subject to an exemption or exception, we will comply with your request upon verifying your identity and, if applicable, the identity of the California resident on whose behalf you are making such request. Our verification process may vary depending on whether you have a relationship or account with Green Box Containers (i.e., a password-protected account).
If you have a relationship and/or account with Green Box Containers, we may verify your identity through existing authentication practices available through your account. Before disclosing or deleting the Personal Information, we will ask you to re-authenticate yourself concerning that account.
If you do not maintain a password-protected account, or if you are an account holder but we suspect fraudulent or malicious activity related to your account, we will verify your identity to a “reasonable degree of certainty” or a “reasonably high degree of certainty” depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information and the risk of harm to you by unauthorized disclosure or deletion, as applicable.
If you are a California resident, you have the right to instruct businesses to stop selling your Personal Information. We do not sell Personal Information as defined in the CCPA.
We will not discriminate against California residents for exercising any of the rights provided in the CCPA as described in this section “Notice to California Residents.” As such, we will not deny goods or services to that California resident; charge different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties; provide a different level or quality of goods or services to the California resident; or suggest that the California resident will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services. However, we are allowed to charge a California resident a different price or rate, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to us by the individual’s data.
Yes, if you are making a request on behalf of a California resident, please submit the request through one of the designated methods discussed above. After submitting the request, we will require additional information to verify your authority to act on behalf of the California resident.
We don’t disclose personal information obtained through our website or services to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we don’t have any obligations under California Civil Code § 1798.83.
If you’re submitting a request on behalf of a California resident, you can do so through one of the methods outlined above. After you submit the request, we will ask for additional information to verify your authority to act on behalf of the California resident.
If you believe your rights under the CCPA have been violated, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the California Attorney General’s Office or your local data protection authority.
