How do we protect your information?
Walters Recycling and Refuse, Inc. implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
Due to the inherent insecurity of the Internet, our security measures should not be viewed as one hundred percent effective in every circumstance. Walters cannot guarantee a breach of our security or the actions of third parties that may obtain unauthorized access. In the event of a breach in which personal information has believed to have been acquired, and where applicable law requires notification, Walters will notify the affected individuals of the breach electronically, by fax or email, or by U.S. mail if unable to contact electronically. Notice will be given in a timely manner, and in conjunction with any law enforcement measures used to determine the nature of the breach and to restore the security of our system.
