You agree and understand that You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of passwords associated with any account You use to access Re-TRAC Connect™. You are responsible for safeguarding the password that You use to access Re-TRAC Connect™ and for any activities or actions under Your password. We encourage You to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with Your account. Accordingly, You agree that You will be solely responsible to Emerge Knowledge for all activities that occur under Your account. If You become aware of any unauthorized use of Your password or of Your account, You agree to notify Emerge Knowledge immediately at

Re-TRAC Connect™ may be updated from time to time on a software release cycle determined by Emerge Knowledge.

You understand that Emerge Knowledge, in providing Re-TRAC Connect™ and the Services to our users, may:
Emerge Knowledge works closely with other third party service providers (collectively, the “Third Party Businesses” and, individually, a “Third Party Business”). These are Businesses that We do not control or own any shares in, which deliver fee-based services in the Software Toolkit, and with whom We co-market. Your choice to use the fee-based services of these Third Party Businesses is at Your discretion and is subject to the terms established in a separate agreement between You and the relevant Third Party Business.

You may not modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute or create derivative works based on this content (either in whole or in part) unless You have been specifically told that You may do so by Emerge Knowledge or by the owner of that content, in a separate agreement in writing between You and that owner. In consideration for Emerge Knowledge granting You access to and use of Re-TRAC Connect™, You agree that Emerge Knowledge may place third party content on Re-TRAC Connect™ in accordance with these terms and conditions.

Emerge Knowledge may collect personal information for the following purposes:
You may access some of Our Services by creating a Re-TRAC Connect™ account and providing Us with some personal information such as Your full name, and email address. Your email address, along with Your password, represent Your “Login Credentials”, and will be used to authenticate You when You access Re-TRAC Connect™ and protect Your account from unauthorized access by others. If You are a user of our Services, We make it easy for You to access or modify the personal information You have provided to Us and that is associated with Your account in order to keep Your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date.
If You are using Re-TRAC Connect™ and You choose to create a public profile, all information which You choose to share with the public (including any personal information you choose to provide in Your public profile) will be visible on the World Wide Web. You understand that creation of a public profile is entirely optional, as is the selection of personal information You choose to share on Your public profile.
You may provide Us with additional personal information such as Your opinions, comments, or photos through Your use of the Services including public profiles, Directories, forums, message boards, and/or social networking features. Providing the additional information is entirely optional and You are responsible for the information that You choose to submit in these instances. Please take care about the personal information that You provide upon using these features.
If You choose to join and/or report to a Program/Directory/Toolkit, during the Registration process You will provide some non-private or non-personal information, such as name of an employee of an organization, title, name of organization, organization address, organization telephone number, organization website address, and detailed information about materials accepted for waste management at the organization location which You represent, which is made available to the public through Your use of the Services.
The information that You are choosing to provide in the Programs and Toolkit sections is information that You understand and provide Your consent for Emerge Knowledge to collect and use as aggregated statistics for the purposes of benchmarking provided that the release of aggregated data will not identify You (or the organization that You represent).
Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by Your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as Your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and language, internet service provider (ISP), date/time stamp, pages visited, and search terms (click-stream data). Other actions, such as interactions with third party providers, may also be included in Log Data. We use this information to understand and analyze trends and to improve our Services.
We may disclose Your personal information if We believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect Emerge Knowledge’s rights or property.
All personal information collected by Emerge Knowledge in the Services is knowingly and specifically supplied to us by You, with Your consent, and other users. Commerce functions provided as part of the Services are protected by 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption.

If you wish to delete Your information, We ask that You put Your request in writing at
and identify Yourself and the specific information You are requesting to have removed before processing such requests. If the information You request to have removed is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes, We will act on your request and respond within thirty calendars days. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, would jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be impractical (for example, requests concerning information residing on backup files), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where We remove information, We perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort. In the case that information is deleted, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from our active servers and may remain in our backup systems.
Emerge Knowledge may change this policy from time to time. If We make a change to this polic
