Welcome to recycler.com. We believe in your right to know what information is collected during your visit to our site and how the information is used and safeguarded.
The information gathered by the recycler.com falls into two categories:
- Information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our site through optional registration.
- Tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our site.
Information Gathered By Voluntary Submission
To make use of certain features on our site (such as Place an Ad, Saved Ads or Alerts, etc.) visitors need to register and to provide certain information as part of the registration or participation process. If you place a paid ad, and from time to time to use certain other features, we also request credit card information which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers. From time to time, we also may ask, for example, for information such as your address, zip code, interest in sports, personal finance, the performing arts, and the like. Although providing additional information is entirely voluntary, the information you supply will help us to offer you more personalized features, to tailor our site to your interests and make it more useful to you. The more you tell us about yourself, the more value we can offer you.
Information Automatically Gathered About All Visitors
We collect both aggregate and user-specific information on what pages consumers access or visit. This information is used to generate reports that help recycler.com assess the value of interest in the site. We use the information we collect to improve the content of our web page. We can build a better site if we know which pages our users are visiting and how often.
Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address but not the e-mail address, when you visit our site. Your IP address does not identify you personally. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our site to the interests of our users, and to measure traffic within our site.
When registered users sign in, our servers automatically record information that their browser sends whenever they visit a website. These server logs may include information such as the web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of the request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify their browser.
When advertisers and users send email or other communications to recycler.com, we may retain those communications in order to process the inquiries, respond to their requests and improve our services.
Information Shared With Other Organizations
We present information to our advertisers to help them understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising on our websites.
This information is usually in the form of aggregated statistics on traffic to various pages within our site. From time to time, we may share information on visitors to our site with organizations marketing products and services that we believe may be of interest to you. This list can include your e-mail address and other specific information (such as your address, phone number personal interests, etc.) you may have provided us while online.
Special Attention To Children
Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We do not specifically collect information about children. We encourage parents to review and share safety tips with their children participating in the online experience.
