Lone Star Waste Services 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, Lone Star Waste Services  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.

Lone Star Waste Services  only shares information with other companies or individuals outside of Lone Star Waste Services  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 Lone Star Waste Services 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 Lone Star Waste Services, consistent with applicable laws; and (d) to defend or assert our legal rights.

Because of the way Lone Star Waste Services maintains certain records, after we delete your information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from Lone Star Waste Services’ active servers and may remain on backup systems.

Lone Star Waste Services takes commercially reasonable security measures to guard your information from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction. These measures include safeguards such as firewalls, encryption and secure technology. Certain areas of the Lone Star Waste Services’ 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.

Lone Star Waste Services restricts access to your information to Lone Star Waste Services  employees, contractors and agents who need to know the information in order to process it on Lone Star Waste Services’ 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 Lone Star Waste Services uses commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information, Lone Star Waste Services 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.

Lone Star Waste Services retains information for as long as required, allowed or Lone Star Waste Services believes it is useful, but does not undertake retention obligations.
