We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
Wayste may use tools or third-party analytical software to automatically collect and use certain non-personal information that does not directly enable Wayste to identify you. The types of non-personal data Wayste may collect and use include, but are not limited to: (i) device properties, including, but not limited to IP address, Media Access Control (“MAC”) address, and unique device identifier or another persistent or non-persistent device identifier (“Device ID”); (ii) device software platform and firmware; (iii) mobile phone carrier; and (iv) other non-personal data as reasonably required by Wayste to enhance the Service. Application usage information may be tracked to determine which features are most popular, how they are being used, and how we can improve the applications and Services.
Wayste may use and disclose to Company partners and contractors the collected non-personal information for purposes of analyzing usage of the Service, advertisement serving, managing and providing the Service, and to further developing the Service and other Wayste services and products.
You recognize and agree that the analytics companies utilized by Wayste may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products relating to your activities. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies.
Wayste does not guarantee or warrant the security of our servers nor can we guarantee that the information you supply through the Service will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal data submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. When you enter sensitive information on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secured socket layer technology.
Information Collection and How it is Used
When you use our Service, we collect information about you in the following general categories:
Location Information: When you use the Service for trash pickup and hauling, we collect precise location data about the pickup location. If you permit the mobile app to access location services through the permission system used by your mobile operating system, we may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address.
Transaction Information: We collect transaction details related to your use of our Services, including the type of service requested, date and time the service was provided, amount to be charged (or weight of pickup), distance traveled, and other related transaction and hauling details.
Call and SMS Data: Our Service facilitates communication between Users and haulers. In connection with facilitating this service, we may receive call data, including the date and time of the call or SMS message, the parties’ phone numbers, and the content of the SMS message.
Log Information: When you interact with the Service, we collect server logs, which may include information like device IP address, access dates and times, app features or pages viewed, app crashes and other system activity, type of browser, and the third-party site or service you were using before interacting with our Service. This information does not identify you personally. Generally, we use this information to improve this Site and Service and make it more compatible with the technology used by our visitors. However, we may link information sent by your browser to information that identifies you personally. For example, if you are a registered member, we may link your IP address to information that identifies you personally. In addition, if we suspect criminal activity, we may share our server logs with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify you.
If you have supplied us with your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, ask for your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Wayste and our products. If you would prefer not to receive marketing or promotional e-mails from us that may relate, for example, to new services or offerings, you may opt-out of receiving these communications by using the opt-out mechanism in an email or by specifying your email communication preferences in your account settings. Following your opt-out, please be aware that we, or our affiliates, may continue to contact you via email for administrative or informational purposes, including, but not limited to, follow-up messages regarding the administration of your account, any services, features or functions you have affirmatively enrolled in or registered to use, any promotions or sweepstakes you have participated in or have entered, or other transactions you have undertaken on the Site.
