PRIVACY POLICY

Thank you for visiting the website (“Website”) of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (“AEPW”). We are committed to maintaining the privacy of visitors to this website as described in this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to websites controlled by AEPW’s members, websites to which this Website links, or third-party websites linking to this Website.

THIS PRIVACY POLICY DISCLOSES HOW THE AEPW COLLECTS, USES, SHARES, AND PROTECTS INFORMATION GATHERED FROM THIS WEBSITE. BY USING THIS WEBSITE, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PROVISION DESCRIBED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE OUR WEBSITE. IN ADDITION, BE SURE TO REVIEW THE TERMS & CONDITIONS, WHICH GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE.

The Website may passively collect information that is automatically sent to us by your web browser in order to provide a more personalized website experience. This information may include your domain name and user name.

The Website may use “cookies” to provide personal service for those who register and to estimate our audience size. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. This Website may use cookies in order to give you a more personalized user experience. Please refer to your browser if you want to learn more about your cookie settings.

Each browser accessing the Website may be given a unique cookie which is then used to determine the extent of repeat usage, usage by a registered user versus by an unregistered user, and to help develop content based on user interests and behavior. We may also measure certain traffic patterns, which areas of the Website you have visited, and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. We may use this research to understand how our users’ habits are similar or different from one another so that we can make each new experience on the Website a better one. We may use this information to better personalize the content users see on our Website.

AEPW will not share with a third party, any information collected on this website for direct marketing purposes. Because of the nature of the Internet, we may transmit the information to another country for purposes other than direct marketing, such as for storage or because of where our servers are located. We may also use it to investigate security breaches or cooperate with authorities pursuant to a legal matter. We may also remove all the personally identifiable information and use the rest for historical, statistical or scientific purposes.

If you e-mail us, you are voluntarily releasing personal information to us. For example, your e-mail address may be used by AEPW to respond to you. It is AEPW’s policy to not disclose externally with third parties personal information collected through our Website, except in the following instances:

• The personal information provided to us may be transferred, disclosed, or shared with third parties engaged by us specifically to handle and deliver certain activities and perform other technical and processing functions, such as sending e-mail or otherwise operating our site. They have access to information needed to perform their functions, but are not to use it for other purposes.

• Personal information provided to us through correspondence may be shared (as appropriate) with other interested parties, including our members.

• We may also disclose personal information to third parties and our members (1) when required by law or when the information is pertinent to judicial/government investigations or proceedings; (2) to protect and defend our rights and property; or (3) when necessary to protect our interests, our Website, the safety of its users, or the public.

Other than as set forth above, we currently do not intend to share your personal information with third parties for other purposes. However, in the future we may disclose personal information you have provided to third parties for additional purposes. In the event we do, we will provide notices of such use to our users.

For your convenience, this Website may contain hyperlinks to websites outside the AEPW. We make no promises or guarantees regarding data collection on the hyperlinked pages that are not owned by the AEPW. We therefore recommend that you read the privacy policy/statement for each site you visit. We are not responsible for the privacy practices at these external websites or their use of any information they may collect from you.

You have the right at any time to withdraw your consent to the use of your personal data in the future. Please note that any information that we have collected may remain in back-up storage, archival, and/or our log files, for some period of time after a deletion request. This may be the case even though no information about your account remains actively used as described in this Privacy Policy.
