Categories of Information We Collect
We interpret the term “Personal Information” in accordance with applicable law as referring to information that may be used to identify, contact, or locate a specific person. We collect Personal Information from individuals who volunteer their information to us to enable us to contact them regarding our business. The Personal Information we collect from individuals includes: names, telephone numbers, email addresses, mailing addresses, and other information individuals choose to provide.
We use the Personal Information collected to communicate with customers and potential customers, including distribution of our newsletters, to provide products or services, and for additional purposes identified at or before the time that the information is collected. Metro Presort also uses Personal Information for accounting and transaction completion purposes. Metro Presort may disclose Personal Information to its legal, financial, and other service providers or in connection with the sale or reorganization of all or part of its business or operations. To the extent Metro Presort shares Personal Information with service providers, Metro Presort will require such service providers to honor the commitments to privacy and security as are set forth in this Policy.
We do not disclose Personal Information to third-parties other than service providers who process Personal Information on our behalf or as may be required by applicable law.
We do not regard Personal Information that has been anonymized or aggregated to prevent the identification of a specific individual to continue to be Personal Information.
In addition to collecting and using Personal Information as outlined above, we also gather certain information known as “Usage Information” that tells us how visitors interact with our website. Usage Information means certain personally identifiable and non-identifiable information that we or our third-party service providers may collect through a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain information from users as they visit or interact with our website. Usage Information may include IP address or other device identifiers, the type of browser, device, and operating system a user employs, the URL that referred users to our website, how and when users interact with our website, and other similar information. We collect information about the manner in which our website is used and the devices on which they are used and to collect data to improve the performance and features of our website. If we combine Usage Information with Personal Information, we will treat the combined data as Personal Information.
Usage Information collected is used to compile overall statistics and is not recorded at an individual level. The statistics help us decide which products and services best serve our website visitors and other customers and for the maintenance and improvement of our Platforms.
The Usage Information we may access, collect, and/or monitor can include location data, such as geographic information regarding the location of the accessing device. Location data may help us understand where our Platforms are being used. Location data, however, is only displayed and shared in accordance with the privacy settings in each user’s device or browser software.
By using our website, you are authorizing us to process Personal Information and Usage Information as described in this Policy.
Once a user accesses or uses our Platforms, we and the service provider(s) assisting with the administration of our Platforms may engage, receive, collect, and store Usage Information through automatic data collection tools including cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, embedded web links, and similar technology.
A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server that facilitates communication between browser and server. A cookie can function like bookmark, enabling efficient return to a desired website.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but browser settings can be changed to decline cookies based on user preference. If you decline cookies, you may not be able to experience all features of our website.
Security of Your Personal Information
Metro Presort takes reasonable precautions, including administrative, technical, and physical security safeguards, to protect the Personal Information we receive from users via our Platforms. The security precautions we take are commensurate with the sensitivity of the Personal Information we process. With respect to Personal Information we receive from our website, the servers that store Personal Information are kept in a secure environment under restricted access. Because of these safeguards and our policy of not sharing Personal Information with third parties other than our own service providers, we believe that your decision to share Personal Information with us represents a low risk to you.
Of course, the Internet is not 100 percent secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us. We do not accept liability for unintentional disclosure. Should any event occur where Personal Information has been potentially compromised, our policy is to alert our customers according to applicable law.
By providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of our website or receipt of our products or services. If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on our website or by e-mailing you. You may have a legal right to receive this notice in paper/hardcopy format. To receive free written notice of a security breach in paper or hardcopy format (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice), please notify us at the contact information listed below.
User Rights and Choices
Opt-In. We primarily receive your Personal Information when you voluntarily provide it to us by interacting with our website or otherwise providing it to us. You are not required to submit your Personal Information to access and use our website. By providing your Personal Information to us, you are authorizing us to use your Personal Information for the purposes set forth in this Policy. By providing your telephone number, you are authorizing us to call you and to send you text messages for our marketing purposes. You can unsubscribe to these communications by contacting our us, replying to a text message, or by letting us know during a call that you wish to discontinue such communications.
Opt-Out. If you have provided your Personal Information to us but do not wish to receive communications from us, you may unsubscribe at any time by contacting us using the contact information below. You can also unsubscribe from receiving further e-mail communications from us by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link that is included at the bottom of every such e-mail.
You may also set up your browser so that it sends a so-called “do not track” signal to websites you visit. Because we never track your activities across websites or use Usage Information to allow behavioral advertising companies, analytics companies, or others to track users for third-party marketing purposes, your use of the “do not track” signal does not alter the way we collect Personal Information and Usage Information.
California Privacy. If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your personal information by Metro Presort or its affiliates to a third party for the third party’s direct marketing purposes. Metro Presort does not currently disclose any Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. For further inquiries under California Civil Code Section 1798.83, please contact our privacy officer at the contact information below. As to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), because of our business activities, the CCPA does not apply to us.
European Union Privacy. As we are not established in the European Union and neither intentionally market to individuals in the Union nor track data subjects in the Union, we are not subject to the GDPR.
We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or use Personal Information from children under 13 years of age without parental consent, and no part of the website is directed to children under the age of 13. If you learn that a child has provided us with Personal Information without parental consent, you may alert us at the contact information shown below. If we learn that we have collected any Personal Information from children under 13 years of age without parental consent, we will promptly take steps to delete such information as well as any other reasonable remedial steps as we deem necessary.
Governing Law and Location of Adjudication
By choosing to use our website or otherwise provide information to us, you agree that any dispute over privacy or the terms contained in this Policy will be governed by the law of the United States and the state of Oregon and the adjudication of any disputes arising in connection with our website or your Personal Information, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law (unless the parties unanimously consent to another forum), must occur in a federal or state court in the State of Oregon.
Data Minimization & Retention
We do not collect Personal Information except as necessary to accomplish the business purposes set forth in this Policy. Except where otherwise required by law, we will retain your Personal Information only for as long as needed for the business purpose for which we collected it.
