  2. Information on visitors
    During the course of any visit to RecycleNow, the pages you see, along with something called a cookie, are downloaded to your computer. Cookies are text files that identify your computer to our server. Most, if not all, websites do this, because cookies allow the website publisher to do useful things like find out whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the site before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit. Any information that is supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better service and assists us to analyse the profile of our visitors. Cookies themselves only record those areas of the site that have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long. Your personal information is not captured in the cookie.

    When you supply any personal information to WRAP (eg. for the RecycleNow email newsletter) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data. We must collect the information fairly, we must let you know how we will use it; and we must tell you in advance and get your permission to pass the information on to anyone else. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or on your request. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
  4. Direct marketing and user surveys
    As RecycleNow's services expand, there will be more opportunities to enhance the services provided to you.
