3. Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies: We use cookies, web beacons, pixels, session replay/screen capture, and similar technologies to collect information and personalize your experience with our Services.

a. Cookies: Cookies are small web files that a site or its provider transfers to your device’s hard drive through your web browser that enables the site’s or provider’s system to recognize your browser and remember certain information.

i) How We Use Cookies: We use first-party and third-party cookies for the following purposes:

  • to make our Services function properly;

  • to improve our Services;

  • to recognize you when you return to Paradigm One and to remember information you have already provided, such as items already in your order cart;

  • to collect information about your activities over time and across third party websites or other online services in order to deliver content and advertising tailored to your interests; and,

  • to provide a secure browsing experience during your use of our Services.

ii) How to Manage Cookies: You may disable the use of cookies by modifying your browser settings. If you choose to disable cookies you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of our Services.

b. Web Beacons: Web beacons, also known as web bugs, pixel tags or clear GIFs, are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Site to deliver or communicate with cookies, in order to track and measure the performance of our Site and Services, monitor how many web visitors we have, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on webpages (or in an email).

c. Online Analytics and Advertising Technologies: We and our third-party vendors may use automated technologies (including cookie identifiers on our Site), along with other collected information, to tailor ads or deliver content when you are on our Services or on other devices, apps or websites.

d. Interest-Based Advertising: We (or our service providers) may use the information we collect, for instance, IP addresses and unique mobile device identifiers, to locate or try to locate the same unique users across multiple browsers or devices (such as smartphones, tablets, or computers), or work with providers that do this, in order to better tailor content and features and provide you with a seamless experience across devices. If you wish to opt out of cross device tracking for purposes of interest-based advertising, you may do so through your device settings. We may also use cross-device targeting to help identify our users and serve advertising. This type of advertising is often called “interest-based” or “personalized” advertising—and when it occurs on mobile apps, “cross-app” advertising.

You can learn more about interest-based advertising and how to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising by visiting (i) the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer ​Opt-Out link or (ii) the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer ​​Opt-Out link​. To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, you can visit the ​​Google Ads Settings page​.

Please note that even if you opt-out, you may still receive advertisements from us. However, in that case, the advertising will not be tailored to your interests. Also, we do not control any of the above opt-out links or whether any particular company chooses to participate in these opt-out programs.

e. Mobile Applications: Depending on your permissions, we may receive your Personal Information from your Internet service and mobile device providers. Users of mobile devices ​who do not want to receive interest-based advertising may opt-out in several ways. Learn more about your choices for mobile devices by visiting www.aboutads.info/appchoices​. Each operating system, (iOS for Apple phones, Android for Android devices, and Windows for Microsoft devices) provides its own instructions on how to prevent the delivery of tailored in-application advertisements. You should view your device or system “Settings” to determine how you can opt out of use of your device ID for “cross-app” personalized advertising.

 

4. Use of Your Personal Information: We may use the information we collect or receive about you for any of the below purposes.

a. To Provide You with the Services: We use your information to provide you the Services. For example, we use credit card information to complete a transaction. If the applicable information is to be provided or Service is to be performed by a third party, then we will disclose the applicable Personal Information to the third party providing the information or performing applicable Services. Your information may be available or provided to third-party service providers and that are contractually obligated to protect your information as disclosed in this Policy.

For example, we may send you text messages or other notifications about the status of your membership account, container levels, food delivery and container collection orders, or other services we are providing to you. We may also contact you with promotional offerings or other communications that may be of interest to you. If we send you marketing emails about services that may interest you, each email will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future email marketing communications.

d. In the event you contact us, we use certain information to respond to your questions and assist you with any issues that may arise in your use of the Services. If you send text messages to Paradigm One or one of its employees, using the telephone number for that employee available on the Services, we may use a third-party service provider to track and analyze these text messages. We track these text messages for fraud prevention, to ensure appropriate charging of fees, to enforce our Terms of Service, and for quality and training purposes. As part of this process, Paradigm One and its service provider will receive in real time and store data about your text message, including the date and time of the text message, your phone number, and the content of the text message. You will not be able to opt out of transactional text messages between you and Paradigm One employees.

e. For Account and Network Security Purposes: We care about keeping you secure and safe while using our Services. Keeping you safe requires us to process your Personal Information, such as your device information, activity information and other relevant information.
