CREDIT CARD SECURITY AND TRANSMISSION
greenlightjobs employs an encryption for secure credit card transactions through a gateway and merchant account provider, Cybersource. When you make a purchase on our Site with your credit card information we ensure that it is protected through the use of encryption, which means that is it difficult, not impossible, for your credit card information to be intercepted or stolen while the data is being transmitted through our Site.
At greenlightjobs, we use the highest level of encryption currently available to consumers through Cybersource. This ensures the safety and security of your credit card transactions. SSL ("Secure Sockets Layer") that basically means our server and your browser create and agree on an encryption key that will be used only for that particular session. Once established, this key encrypts all communication between our server and your browser.
To ensure accountability to these security measures, we have a "Server Certificate" issued to us by Thawte. They are a trusted third party authenticator. The certificate allows for authentication and guarantees mutual protection as well. If you have concerns, or witness any questionable Site activity or believe you are a victim of fraud, you should review your credit card agreement or call the Company that issues your card to ask about its policies regarding liability for fraudulent Internet charges or, contact your local authorities, or you may e-mail greenlightjobs for more information regarding online credit card transactions at firstname.lastname@example.org so steps can be taken for your immediate safety.
