A. Information You Provide to Us.
Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you fill out our “Contact Us” form, we will receive your first and last name, work email address, company, phone number, address, and the content of your message.
Careers. If you decide that you wish to apply for a job with us, you may submit your contact information and your resume online. We will collect the information you choose to provide on your resume, such as your education and employment experience. You may also apply through LinkedIn. If you do so, we will collect the information you make available to us on LinkedIn.
Information at our Recycling Facilities. We provide a number of artificial-intelligence based tools for recycling facilities and the broader recycling industry. A core part of this technology is the system’s ability to learn how to better distinguish material as it is exposed to additional waste and recyclable material. In the course of improving itself, the technology will view the contents of recycling bins, which may contain material discarded by residents and businesses that contain personal information. We may use recordings of this material in aggregated and anonymized form in order to improve our technology.
