RECYCLE GLOBAL EXCHANGE, LLC

Privacy Policy

Effective Date: June 1, 2021
This is the privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) for Recycle Global Exchange, LLC (“RGX” or “we” or “us” and the possessive “our”) whose headquarters is 834 S. Perry Street, Unit F, #337, Castle Rock, Colorado 80104. RGX values your privacy in your personal information and content that you store in our Website. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and made a part of the Recycle Global Exchange, LLC Terms of Service Agreement among us and the various “Users” (defined therein) (the “TOS”). Capitalized terms used, but not otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy have the meanings given to them in the TOS, including “Platform,” “Website,” and “Program,” which are used herein interchangeably. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to explain to our Users of the Program, as well as to visitors to our Website who are not Users (“Visitors”), what information about them, including Personal Information (defined below) we collect, store, use, and disclose, how we collect, store, use and disclose that information in order to give to you better tools to access, understand, and control, the collection, processing, use and sharing of your Personal Information.

Please read this Policy carefully. If you do not agree with anything contained in this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Website or Application or provide any information to us. By using our Platform, Website, or Application, you accept the terms of and consent to this Privacy Policy. This consent provides us with a legal basis to process your personal information. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

We reserve the right, at any time, and from time to time, to modify, update or revise this Privacy Policy. We will post those revisions to this Privacy Policy to our Website, and you will have the opportunity to consent to those modifications. You should review this Privacy Policy periodically so that you keep up to date on the most current versions and related practices and procedures.

IN GENERAL

RGX collects two overall types of data: 1) “User Data,” such as information provided by Customers and Vendors who use the Platform to connect regarding technology equipment and data recycling needs; and 2) “Visitor Data,” which is from visitors to its Website (whether or not they are also Users). This is an important distinction that will continually be made in this Privacy Policy, because the applicability of certain provisions, and additional contractual terms in the TOS between RGX and its Users, will depend on whether the data in question is either User Data, or Visitor Data.

RGX is a “Service Provider” to Users.  RGX provides the Program as a Service Provider to its Users, and as such, the TOS describes the business purposes for which RGX collects and processes User Data (such purposes, the “Service”). To allow RGX to provide the Service, and for Users to use the Platform, Applications, and other tools, RGX must collect and be permitted to disseminate User Data as further described in the TOS and this Privacy Policy.  As such, and to carry out the business purposes of its Users, Users agree that RGX may provide a User’s information to other Users of the RGX Program as well as third parties utilized by RGX to provide the Service, and that such disclosure do not constitute the sale of a User’s information. Such User information shared by RGX with other Users in fulfillment of the Users’ business purposes will include, but is not limited to, the User’s Personal Information (identifiable information about the User), and information about the User’s business that is entered by the User into the Program. The provisions in the TOS, in addition to applicable provisions of this Privacy Policy, govern and limit what RGX is authorized to do with such User Data.

RGX will never utilize User Data for any purpose other than: 1) as permitted by the TOS and this Privacy Policy; and/or 2) to the extent necessary to detect data security incidents, or protect against fraudulent or illegal activity. RGX will not sell your Personal Information to third parties, and will only disclose your information to third parties as provided in the TOS and this Privacy Policy.

RGX Users are Responsible for their own privacy compliance. RGX Users agree in the TOS to acknowledge their own compliance with applicable law in their collection of data from other Users and any third parties (including their own customers) who may directly or indirectly benefit from or be involved with the Program, and not to use any personal information collected from within the RGX Program for any purpose other than to facilitate their own use of the Program. The privacy policies and direct agreements between Users govern the rights of such Users as to the personal information they may provide to each other, whether within or outside of the RGX Program.

  1. How We Protect Your Information. We use a combination of administrative, physical, and technical tools and security procedures to safeguard your information from unauthorized access to, erroneous disclosure of, loss or destruction of, or unlawful interception of Personal Information. Our computer systems utilize industry-standard security measures designed to prevent unauthorized access. Some of the safeguards we use to protect your information are firewalls and data encryption, and information access controls. However, no security system is perfect, and we cannot promise, and you shall not expect, that your Personal Information will remain secure in all circumstances. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of information you transmit to us or your User Content or that unauthorized access to or manipulation of it can be prevented, and you do so at your own risk. You are responsible for keeping your passwords confidential and not sharing them with anyone. Further, we cannot guarantee that your Personal Information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed as a result of an attack to our systems or as a result of any other event beyond our reasonable control. To avoid doubt, we expressly and to the fullest extent permitted by law, disclaim any representation or warranty, whether express or implied, with respect to ensuring, guaranteeing or otherwise offering any definitive promise of security in connection with your Personal Information or User Content.
  2. How Long We Keep Your Information. We store your Personal Information until you terminate your Account with us. If you decide to stop using the Service, we must retain certain Personal Information for as long as is necessary to perform contracts between you and us and to comply with our legal obligations, data backup, or reporting requirements, as well as to allow its continued use by other Users with whom you have engaged via the Program, in accordance with the TOS. We may also retain some of your Personal Information as necessary for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud detection and prevention and enhancing safety. Please note, however, that User Content that you have shared with others may continue to be publicly visible on the Platform, even after your Account is terminated.
