2. Our Services
GreenZone crowdsources data to support economic activity in your local area.

Weorganize all of this information and give you efficient ways to access and receive updates about your data.Specifcially, GreenZone shows you places, facilities and businesses surrounding locations that you select. You can monitor and analyze information about those places, facilities and businesses that you and others provide using GreenZone.

We may use such information to send you special offers from a variety of 3rd Parties (such as a coupons). In addition, we may share aggregated and/or de-identified data with 3rd Parties.
