What Tracking Information Does MedPro Disposal Collect and How Does MedPro Disposal Use It?
All information that MedPro Disposal collects may be used for improving our products and services, providing more effective customer service, performing research, and identifying ways of improving our site.
How Does MedPro Disposal Store My Data?
MedPro Disposal uses its own and third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run our business. The technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks, and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Currently, MedPro Disposal and its authorized third party vendors and hosting partners process data (including possibly your personal information) on servers in the United States of America. In some limited cases, personal information may be processed and stored outside the United States of America.
All customer data, including service records and cleanup documentation, is stored on a secure server within a high security firewall, with restricted access to external networks.
When Does MedPro Disposal Disclose My Data?
MedPro Disposal only shares information with other companies or individuals outside of MedPro Disposal in the following limited circumstances:
- With your consent, as in providing it to your insurance company who may be assisting with payment of services.
- When MedPro Disposal has a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with valid legal processes, applicable law, regulation or enforceable governmental requests; (b) when your actions violate the Terms of Service; (c) to protect user security, the security of other persons, or the security of MedPro Disposal, consistent with applicable laws; and (d) to defend or assert our legal rights.
- To our subsidiaries, affiliated companies and service providers, such as credit-card payment processors or third party API resources for marketing and research tools, who perform services on our behalf. These subsidiaries, affiliated companies and service providers may have access to information, including personal information, only as needed to perform their functions and are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.
Your Choices, Accessing and Updating Information
If you become a customer, you may control certain information stored by MedPro Disposal. For example, MedPro Disposal collects your email address. If you previously opted-in to receive marketing emails, no longer want us to contact you for marketing purposes, you can change your account settings by opting out of marketing related emails. Please remember that we will always need an email for mandatory service communications such as billing reminders, information on pending job details, and security announcements.
Because of the way MedPro Disposal maintains certain records, after we delete your information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from MedPro Disposal’s active servers and may remain on backup systems.

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
- Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Completing the below form:
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
For instructions on exercising sale opt-out rights, see Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Security and Retention
MedPro Disposal takes commercially reasonable security measures to guard your information from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alternation, disclosure or destruction. These measures include safeguards such as firewalls, encryption and secure technology. Certain areas of the MedPro Disposal websites such as online payment may only be accessed with a user ID and password. It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all persons using your user ID and password. Please advise us immediately if you believe your user ID and password have been compromised.
MedPro Disposal restricts access to your information to MedPro Disposal employees, contractors and agents who need to know the information in order to process it on MedPro Disposal’s behalf. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
However, neither people nor security systems are foolproof, including encryption systems. In addition, people can commit intentional crimes, make mistakes, or fail to follow policies. Therefore, while MedPro Disposal uses commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information, MedPro Disposal cannot guarantee its absolute security. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty to protect your information, you agree that intentional misconduct will be the standards used to measure our compliance with this duty.
MedPro Disposal retains information for as long as required, allowed or MedPro Disposal believes it is useful, but does not undertake retention obligations. MedPro Disposal may dispose of information in MedPro Disposal’s sole discretion without notice, subject to applicable law that specifically requires the handling or retention of information. You must keep your own, separate back-up records of your data.
