We will collect any information you voluntarily provide, and we may also request optional information to support your use of DumpsterCo, such as your year of birth, gender and other demographic information. We collect information in the form of the Content that you submit during your use of DumpsterCo, such as photos, reviews, ratings and other information you choose to submit.

Information Collected Via Technology
An iInternet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. For example, we, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access DumpsterCo to assist with ad targeting.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to retain information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site, and to provide anonymized tracking data to third party applications. This enables us to improve our services and your experience of DumpsterCo. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your internet browser info file directions. In order to use our services offered through DumpsterCo, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of DumpsterCo may not work properly, and you may not be able to receive our services.
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (“interest based targeting”).
The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (for example, if you have been viewing websites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related website, such as on a website about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.
You can opt-out of this ad serving on all websites using this advertising by visiting: http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our website as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a website running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. You can find out more about cookies by visiting: http://www.aboutcookies.org

Except where you have made direct contact with a Merchant or otherwise given them permission to contact you directly, if a Merchant uses your Personal Information to contact you for any purpose other than in response to a service request submitted via DumpsterCo please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect and defend our rights or property, you, or third parties. You hereby consent to us sharing your Personal Information under the circumstances described herein.
