County Waste will use personally identifiable information voluntarily submitted to us to respond to requests you make of us or to contact you in connection with your requests. Additionally, County Waste may use that information to determine how we can improve its Site, business and services. Any and all uses will comply with applicable law.
The information we collect may include such items as: your name, address, telephone number, email address, payment information or interest in specific products or services.
In addition, we may use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a tiny element of data that a Web site (including our Site) can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive so we can recognize you when you return. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie.
As a general rule, we do not sell or rent your personal or business information to any third party, except as described below or in connection with effectively maintaining and operating the Site. However, County Waste cooperates with law enforcement and judicial inquires and other third parties to enforce laws, intellectual property and other rights. It may be necessary to furnish your information to third parties in connection with these objectives.
If you are using the Site to access our electronic payment system, we may request certain financial information so that we may affect the payment transaction. Our payment system may collect, store and use non-public personally identifiable information such as your name, address, credit card number, bank routing and account number, County Waste account number and e-mail address to process your payments. In addition, the payment system will also collect information regarding the actual bill payment transactions, including the dates and amounts paid. County Waste will store and protect this information in the same manner we store and protect other personal customer information, and this is true both for our current customers as well as our former customers. We will only disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make:
We may disclose certain information we collect about you to our affiliates who offer you waste management and disposal services, and to non-affiliated third parties that perform services on our behalf, including marketing services, or parties with whom we have joint services and/or joint marketing agreements. We reserve the right to provide non-personal identifying information, such as aggregate data, to third parties.
County Waste is concerned with the security of the data and information we collect. We use commercially reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards (such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software) to help ensure the security, integrity and privacy of all personal information. However, due to the inherent insecurity of the Internet, no security measures should be viewed as one hundred percent effective in all circumstances. County Waste cannot absolutely guarantee against a breach of its security or the actions of third parties that may seek to obtain unauthorized access to personal information.
In the event of a security breach in which personal information has been acquired, or is reasonably believed to have been acquired, by an unauthorized person, and where applicable law requires notification, County Waste will notify the affected individual(s) of the breach electronically, by email or fax, or if unable to contact the individual electronically, then by US Mail. This notice will be given in a timely manner, consistent with legitimate needs of law enforcement and any measures necessary for County Waste or law enforcement to determine the scope of the breach and to restore and assure the integrity of the data system.
In the case where law enforcement determines that notification will impede a criminal investigation, County Waste may delay notification until law enforcement or we determine that notification will not compromise the investigation.
