This Privacy Statement is designed to tell you about BioHiTech America, LLC. (“BioHiTech”, “We”, or “Us”) practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information related to your use of websites, mobile applications and other electronic services that link to this Privacy Statement (collectively the “Service”). Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Statement before using the Service.
By registering for or otherwise using the Service, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement. Specifically, you authorize the collection, processing, retention, and disclosure of Information about You by BioHiTech and its affiliates, business partners, and service providers for the purposes described in this Privacy Statement or as described to you during your interactions with the Service. For example, We might clarify our practices when you register or when you use the Service, or one of its functions, for the first time.
This Privacy Statement is updated as of February 6, 2017. We reserve the right to update this Privacy Statement. If We update this Privacy Statement, We will use reasonable electronic efforts to advise you of the change, which may include posting a notice of the change in the Service, or we may send you an electronic notification of the change. If We electronically notify you by an electronic communication, We will provide these electronic messages to your last known or provided electronic communication address (which may be for example, a text message address, Twitter user name, Facebook address or other site address). You are responsible to review communications we send to those addresses, to authorize communications from us, and to keep those addresses up to date. Use of the Service after our notice of a change in the Privacy Statement is acceptance of the terms and changes in the updated Privacy Statement, which shall, unless expressly prohibited by applicable law (or unless expressly stated in such changed Privacy Statement), be effective from the inception of your use of the Service.
We, business partners, and service providers, use the Information about You to support your use of the Service. Information about You includes direct identifiers-such as your name, user name or number, and contact information-and other information associated with the direct identifiers-such as account information. If We remove direct identifiers about you, such information is no longer considered Information about You and is not subject to this Privacy Statement. Information about You is collected through a variety of sources, including directly from you, through your interaction with the Service, and from the other persons who may provide Information about You through the Service. Many functions of the Service involve you directly submitting information (such as by subscribing to one of our services) so you may benefit from features or participate in activities using the Service. For example, We collect or derive Information about You through the Service when you respond to questions and images to derive your personality profile.
We, along with our affiliates, business partners, and service providers, use the information about you to provide or promote our products and services, to fulfill your information requests, and contact you as you have requested. Except as otherwise stated, we may also use information about you to improve our programs or the content of our Service, and for our analysis. In cases where We remove the elements of your information that could identify you, We may use and disclose the resulting “de-identified” information without restrictions. For example, We may create de-identified, statistical, and aggregate data results for research purposes and for reporting to other organizations. This data reported will not contain personal identifiers and will not identify individuals.
We may share information with the following parties for the following purposes:
To keep the information that you provide via this Service accurate, current, and complete, please contact Us as specified below and We will take appropriate steps to update or correct such information in our possession, or to make changes to the Information about You so that we no longer contact you for certain purposes.
We may communicate with you through electronic communications and through the Service, such as through the use of notifications and alerts. You may manage certain other ways in which We communicate with you. For example, you may subscribe or unsubscribe to certain electronic communications from Us, such as for notifications and marketing. You may not unsubscribe from administrative Service and electronic messages that We may send, such as to alert you of changes in our Privacy Statement or Terms of Service.
The Service may provide hyperlinks and references to other websites, or allow you to connect your information on this Service to such sites. Our Privacy Statement does not apply to those websites, and we are not responsible for the content or function of those websites. We encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of the other websites that you use.
We take reasonable steps to protect Information about You in our possession and control, and to protect the information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, or alteration.
