COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
This site is owned and operated by Clean Earth, Inc. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At Clean Earth, Inc, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
INFORMATION CLEAN EARTH, INC. GATHERS AND TRACKS
Clean Earth, Inc. gathers two types of information about users:
- Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. Gathered information may include but is not limited to voluntary submissions to receive our electronic news, request a quote, request a permit, request an analytical review, request general information, request a W-9, request a Certification of Insurance, email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys.
- Information Clean Earth, Inc. gathers through aggregated tracking information is derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to better understand the demographics of our audience.
Clean Earth, Inc. Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
- Electronic News: We will offer a free electronic news to users. Clean Earth, Inc. gathers the contact information of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every eblast.
- Requested Information (forms): Users of the site's request forms must register separately for these requests in order to submit requests through our website for requested permits, quotes, analytical reviews, W-9, Certificate of Insurance, or general information. The user is required to supply information such as but not limited to first name, last name, email address and under certain circumstances will need to provide additional information so that we can fulfill the request. The user’s information is not used for any other purpose other than to respond to the request in the appropriate manner.
- "Share" Service: Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "Share". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
- Polling: We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. Clean Earth, Inc. may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
- Surveys: Clean Earth, Inc. may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Clean Earth, Inc. tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Clean Earth, Inc. does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
Clean Earth, Inc. sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms those users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
