Personal Information We Collect
In order for you to receive the most benefit from our Site, we collect user-submitted, personally identifiable information when you access the Site. We receive and store any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way. This includes information that can identify you ("personal information"), including your first and last name, the name of your company, your telephone number, postal and email addresses, and fax number. Information may be submitted to the Wastexperts either via the Site or via phone or email when communicating with one of our representatives.
In addition to “personal information,” we may also gather non-personal information. Such data may be gathered when using the Site and includes things like the referring URL and the type of browser you may be using to access the Site. We gather this information to better understand your use of the Site. This in turn, enables us to improve and enhance your experience.
Cookies and Web Tags
A cookie is a small data file that is sent by web servers to your computer’s hard drive, where your internet browser files are kept. Cookies enable web sites to store small bits of information on your computer and retrieve that information at a later time.
We may also use web tags, also known as single-pixel tags, which are graphics that function similar to cookies. Single-pixel tags are not visible because of their small size. They are used to collect information in web logs that do not identify you personally, such as web pages viewed, the web site you came from, and any advertisement you clicked on to visit our Site. They can also be used to determine whether certain promotional or other commercial e-mail messages we may send are opened.
Please remember to help keep the Site secure by never sharing your username or password. If you think your password may have been compromised, please change it immediately or contact Wastexperts for additional assistance.
How We Use Your Information
We may share with third parties, such as advertisers on our Site or other website operators, anonymous, aggregated information about user habits, characteristics and user patterns. We may use your IP address and share it with third parties to help diagnose problems with our servers, to manage the Site, and to enhance the Site based on usage pattern data.
Use by Minors
The Site is not intended for use by anyone under 18. No person under 13 should disclose information on this Site. We do not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should email us at Service@wastexperts.net to remove the information. You may learn more about protecting children's privacy online by visiting www.onguardonline.gov.
Legal Requests and Change of Ownership
In the event of a change in control of Wastexperts, personal information may be exchanged as part of a merger, sale, or other business transfer.
Wastexperts may disclose personal information when we believe such action is necessary to comply with the law or enforce or apply our Terms of Service.
Updates and Notices
Periodically, Wastexperts may send you email communications detailing new features or promotions on the Site. You may “opt-out” from these messages by using the link at the bottom of the email. We may also send you email messages about the status of your account or any notices as required by law. You may not opt-out of receiving these administrative emails so long as you continue to use this voluntary service.

Protection of your Personally Identifiable Information
In an effort to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure or accidental loss or destruction of your personally identifiable information, we use reasonable efforts to secure the information you provide. ALTHOUGH WE TAKE REASONABLE STEPS TO SAFEGUARD AND PREVENT UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION, WE CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTS OF HACKERS AND OTHERS WHO GAIN UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, AND WE MAKE NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR OTHERISE, THAT WE WILL PREVENT SUCH ACCESS. YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE RISK OF IDENTITY THEFT, RELATING TO THE ACTS OF THOSE WHO GAIN UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS. COMMUNICATIONS YOU MAY HAVE WITH US VIA EMAIL MAY NOT BE SECURE UNLESS WE ADVISE YOU THAT SECURITY MEASURES ARE IN PLACE PRIOR TO YOUR SENDING INFORMATION. THEREFORE, IF YOU CHOOSE TO COMMUNICATE WITH US THROUGH THESE MEANS, YOU ARE ASSUMING THE RISK OF DOING SO AND WE REQUEST THAT YOU DO NOT SEND OR POST SENSITIVE INFORMATION THROUGH THESE MEANS.
If you are not a resident of the United States, you acknowledge and agree that we may collect and use your personal information outside your home jurisdiction, and that we may store your personal information in the United States.
