WWPI encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from TWWDisposal.org so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. WWPI is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the TWWDisposal.org and the WWPI family of websites.

WWPI does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
WWPI keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within TWWDisposal.org, in order to determine what TWWDisposal.org services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within TWWDisposal.org to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

The TWWDisposal.org website use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize TWWDisposal.org pages, or register with TWWDisposal.org site or services, a cookie helps TWWDisposal.org to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same TWWDisposal.org website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the TWWDisposal.org features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the TWWDisposal.org services or websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
WWPI secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. WWPI secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
WWPI will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. WWPI encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how TWWDisposal.org is protecting your information.
WWPI welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that TWWDisposal.org has not adhered to this Statement, please contact WWPI at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
