Types of Data We Collect – We collect personal information from users, as described below.
SECTION 2 – Information You Provide to Us
We may collect personal information from you, such as your first and last name, phone number, e-mail, address, and password when you create an account to log in to our network (“Account”).
If you use our Services on your mobile device, including through our App(s), we may collect your phone number and the unique device ID number.
When you use our Services, we will collect all information necessary to complete the transaction, including your name, address, preferences, and payment information.
If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.
Use of our Services may require you to provide your account credentials, including user names and passwords, for those third party software applications on your mobile device that you link to the Service (“Third Party Credentials”). The Service will use your Third Party Credentials solely to provide the services you request. We encourage you to use user names and passwords that are different from Third Party Credentials on those accounts and applications that do not link to the Services.
We may collect other types of personal information that you provide to us voluntarily, to access your residence/property. For the purpose of providing some Services, we may be required to take images of your residence; such images will be used solely for the purpose of providing the service requested.
We may also collect personal information, such as at other points in our Service that state that personal information is being collected.
Information Collected from SNS Accounts
Depending on the version of the App you are using, you may be able to login to the Services using your Facebook account or another social networking service (“SNS”) that we support, you will first be asked to enter your SNS credentials and then be given the option to register for the Services. In this case, we may receive information from the SNS to make it easier for you to create an Account on the Service and show our relevant content from your Facebook or SNS friends. Any information that we collect from your SNS account may depend on the privacy settings you have with that SNS, so please consult the SNS’s privacy and data practices. You can edit privacy settings at any time or disconnect your Services activity stream from Facebook by visiting the Facebook Applications Settings page.
Information Collected via Technology
As is true of most websites and mobile applications, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests. Except as noted in this Privacy Statement, we do not link this automatically-collected data to personal information.
We may also collect non-personal information from your mobile device if you have downloaded our Application. This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include how you use the Application, and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event our Application crash on your mobile device, we will receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our Application. This information is sent to us as aggregated information and is not traceable to an individual.
In addition, we may use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ personal data.
Information Collected from You About Others
If you decide to invite a third party to create an Account, we will collect your and the third party’s names and e-mail addresses in order to send an e-mail and follow up with the third party. We rely upon you to obtain whatever consents from the third party that may be required by law to allow us to access and upload the third party’s names and e-mail addresses as required above. You or the third party may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the removal of this information from our database.
Information Collected from Third Party Companies
We may obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect on our Services.
SECTION 3 – Use of Your Personal information

We will share your feedback with your first name and last initial only.

It should be noted that we have no control over, and take no responsibility for, the use, storage or dissemination of such publicly-disclosed personal information.
Creation of Anonymous Data

We use this aggregate data to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of our Services and improve Website and App navigation. We reserve the right to use anonymous data for any purpose and disclose anonymous data to third parties in our sole discretion.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which your web browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. Recycle From Home™ currently does not take action in response to these signals. If and when a standard is established, we may revise our Statement on responding to these signals.
Security of Your Personal information
Recycle From Home™ is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We also require you to enter a password to access your Account information. Please do not disclose your Account password to unauthorized people. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while Company uses reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, Company cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Changes to This Privacy Statement
This Privacy Statement is subject to occasional revision, and if we make any material changes in the way we use your personal information, we will notify you by sending you an e-mail to the last e-mail address you provided to us and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes within the Apps. Any changes to this Privacy Statement will be effective upon the earlier of thirty (30) calendar days following our dispatch of an e-mail notice to you or thirty (30) calendar days following our posting of notice of the changes on our Site or within the Application.

In the event that the last e-mail address that you have provided us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, our dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described in the notice. If you do not wish to permit changes in our use of your personal information, you must notify us prior to the effective date of the changes that you wish to deactivate your Account with us.
