Meridian Waste Solutions (“Meridian Waste”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains our information collection, dissemination, storage and use for Meridian Waste’s website. It is important that you review our Privacy Policy. By accessing this website, you agree to Meridian Waste’s Privacy Policy.

Please note, Meridian Waste reserves the right to update, change or otherwise modify this Privacy Policy at any time, in its sole and absolute discretion. Meridian Waste will post a notice of any change to this Privacy Policy on this website and any such change shall be effective as of the posting. Your continued use of this website following the posting of any change to this Privacy Policy shall be your consent to and acceptance of any such posted change.

Information Collection and Sharing

Meridian Waste is the sole owner of the information collected on this website. Meridian Waste only has access to and collects information you voluntarily give us via email, payment enrollment or through other direct contact with you. While we do not require that you register or provide personal information to view this website, registration is necessary for certain services offered by and access to areas of this website. When you register on our site, we will ask for your name, address, phone number, credit card, account number, and email address.

Meridian Waste may use a widely used technology called “cookies” or similar technology. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a website visitor’s hard drive through a web browser program containing information about the visitor that helps us improve your access to our website and to identify and track repeat visitors to the website. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our website. If you prefer not to accept cookies, you may adjust your web browser to refuse cookies automatically. However, if you turn off cookies or refuse to accept a request to place a cookie, some features and services on this website may not function properly. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our website.

Additionally, Meridian Waste may use standard log files or similar technology which includes internet protocol (IP ) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movement in the aggregate and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Again, this information is not linked to personally identifiable information.

Meridian Waste will not sell, lease or trade your information to any other third party.

From time to time, a law, court order or other judicial or administrative process may require Meridian Waste to provide information to a governmental authority or to a party to a private lawsuit. We will provide the information that we believe, in good faith, is required to comply with any such law, order or other process. We may also have to disclose certain information in court documents if we have to bring an action against you for the enforcement of any agreement you have with Meridian Waste.

Use of Your Information

Meridian Waste will use your information to respond to emails, to provide customer service support, to process and collect any electronic payment or transaction which you have previously authorized and/or to provide you information about other related services that Meridian Waste offers.

Security

Meridian Waste is concerned with the security of the data and information we collect and we use commercially reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards to help ensure the integrity, security and privacy of your personal information. When you submit sensitive information (i.e., credit card, debit card or banking information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure manner. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or by looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect your sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need your information to perform a specific job (i.e., billing or customer service) are granted access to your personal sensitive information. Additionally, the computers/servers in which we store your information are kept in a secure environment and access to the computers/servers is password protected. Please note, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and login information. Additionally, please note, that Meridian Waste will never ask you for your password or login information in an unsolicited phone call or email.

Due to the inherent insecurity of the internet, no security measures should be viewed as one hundred percent effective in all circumstances. As a result, Meridian Waste cannot absolutely guarantee against a breach of its security or the access of third parties who may seek to obtain unauthorized access to your personal information. In the event of a security breach in which your personal information has been acquired, or is reasonably believed to have been acquired, by an unauthorized person, and where applicable law requires notification, Meridian Waste will notify you of the breach electronically by email or fax, and if it is unable to notify you in this manner, then it will notify you via U.S. Mail.
