Privacy Policy

Last Updated: April 22, 2014

This Privacy Policy applies to your access and use of www.OneTwine.com (the “Site” or “One Twine”) owned and operated by RecycleRewards, Inc., its affiliates (collectively, “we”, “us”, “our” or “Recyclebank”). We are sensitive to your concerns about how we may collect and use your personally identifiable information (“PII”) that we collect from you through the Site. We recognize and respect the importance of maintaining the privacy of our visitors and members and have established this Privacy Policy statement ("Privacy Policy") as a result. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into our Terms of Use and the Recyclebank Membership Agreement (to the extent it is applicable) therefore governing your use of the Site. By visiting the Site and transacting through the Site, you are accepting the then current practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Please read this Privacy Policy and send us any questions, concerns and suggestions you may have. To contact us, please see the contact information provided below under “Contact Us”.

What One Twine’s Privacy Policy Covers:

  1. What Information Do We Collect?

    The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually enhance the Site and the services we offer. We gather the following types of information:

    1. Information You Give Us. We receive any information you enter on the Site or provide us in any other way (e.g., by telephone or e-mail to customer service). This may include information you provide when you register as a Recyclebank member (wherein the Recyclebank Membership Agreement and Privacy Policy also applies), engage in transactions, search, contact customer service, or participate in contests, promotions, surveys, content submissions, bulletin boards, requests for suggestions or other features or services offered by us. As a result, you may be supplying us with such PII, as defined above, as your name, address and phone numbers; credit/debit card numbers, expiration date and other billing information; people to whom purchases will be shipped, including addresses and phone numbers; and purchase history.

    2. Automatic Information. We automatically receive and store from the Site certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, as most websites do, we use "cookies" and other technologies to obtain certain types of information when your computer, mobile phone or other device (each, a “Device”) accesses the Site. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis, and it may include the Website's Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you go to next, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. Other examples of automatic information we may collect are purchase history, products viewed or searched for, visits to certain pages, page interaction information and the phone number you used to call any of our toll-free customer service numbers. We associate the information we store in cookies with PII you submit while on the Site. During some visits, we may also collect technical information from your Device to help us identify your Device for fraud prevention purposes.

    3. Mobile Devices. If you use a mobile Device to access the Site, we may collect certain information in addition to what we collect when you use other kinds of Devices to access the Site. We may receive information about your location and your mobile Device, including a unique identifier for your Device, your mobile operating system, and the type of mobile Internet browser that you use. We may at times use this information to provide you with location-based services and information, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile Devices provide users with the ability to disable location services. If you have questions about how to disable your Device's location services, we recommend you contact your mobile service carrier or your Device manufacturer.

    4. Information Provided by Third Parties. We may obtain certain information about customers from third parties. This may include updated delivery or address information from carriers.

    5. Cookies. We use small text files called “cookies” that provide non-personally identifiable information to us regarding visitors to the Site. In addition to the URL and IP addresses of our visitors detailed above, cookies may be used to gather the date and time of all visits to the Site. We may also track the pages of the Site which users viewed during their visit, or track search terms entered on the Site by that visitor. This helps us keep track of the number of visitors to the Site and allows us to gauge the areas that are of the most interest to our visitors.

      We also use Local Shared Objects (commonly known as Flash cookies) for fraud prevention and other purposes. Flash cookies are small data files that a website or App Sites on your Device. These files may contain information about your online browsing activities and preferences.

      We use a third-party tracking service that uses cookies and other technologies to track non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form about visitors to the Site. This information is analyzed periodically and is used to gain a broader picture of usage patterns at the Site. We may share the non-personally identifiable information gathered through use of cookies with our advertisers and/or business partners, in order to make the Site as user-friendly as possible.

      The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Flash cookies are not stored in the same manner as conventional cookies, and not all browser versions will delete Flash cookies when you clear conventional cookies from your browser. If you wish to block or delete Flash cookies, you should confirm whether your browser version supports this feature. You may also use Adobe's Flash Player Settings Manager to control how your Device handles Flash cookies. Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of the Site's features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

      Some of our business partners (e.g., advertisers) use cookies on the Site. We have no access to or control over these cookies. This Privacy Policy only covers the use of cookies by Recyclebank and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

  2. How Do We Use the Information We Collect and Do We Share the Information We Receive?

    Information about our customers is an important part of our business. We use information we collect from the Site to communicate with you, to process your orders, to authenticate your identity, to provide an enhanced and more personalized interactive shopping experience, to facilitate your transactions with our third party marketing partners, if any, and to inform you of offers and discounts. For example, we may communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request and to manage your account. We also send service-related announcements on occasions such as when we need to temporarily suspend the Site, the app or other service for maintenance. We also will send you promotional e-mails on occasion. Generally, you may not opt out of service-related communications, which are not promotional in nature. You can opt-out of receiving direct promotional communications from the Site by contacting us with the request. See the “Contact Us” section of this policy for information.

  3. What Information is Collected Through Integration With Third Party Services?

    1. Third-Party Service Providers. We employ other companies to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail or e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and link (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to PII to the extent they need to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

    2. Social Networking Sites. Where integration with a social networking site is present on the Site, it is provided to enhance the Recyclebank member experience. When you add any social networking service to your Recyclebank online profile and access the Site through your other social networking account(s), Recyclebank will collect relevant information necessary to enable this Site to access and collect your data contained within that particular social networking service (e.g. such as your Facebook profile information). Please remember however that the manner in which such third party social network provider uses, stores and discloses your information is governed solely by that provider’s policies, and Recyclebank will have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any third party site or provider that you may enable and link to your online experience with Recyclebank.

  4. Promotional Offers.

    We periodically provide our customers with information about third party products and services we believe will be of interest to you and with opportunities to participate in offers and/or promotions on behalf of other businesses. Your participation in these events may require us to share data with such a business. If you do not want to receive such information or offers, on behalf of third parties or otherwise, please opt-out following a transaction, e-mail us later at customercare@onetwine.com, or follow the unsubscribe instructions within each communication.

  5. Select Partners.

    From time to time, we may establish a business relationship with third parties who we believe are trustworthy and who will be asked to confirm that their privacy policies and procedures are substantially consistent with ours. In such cases, these third parties will be known as our “Select Partners”. Where we have a Select Partner, we may share and cross-reference information, including PII about you, that will enable such persons or entities to contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest to you. We may also combine your PII with publicly available information and information we receive from or cross-reference with our Select Partners and others. We use that combined information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience with us, to communicate with you about our products and services that may be of interest to you and for further promotional purposes. If you do not want us to share information with Select Partners, please opt-out during registration, e-mail us later at customercare@onetwine.com, or follow the unsubscribe instructions within each communication.

  6. Customer Reviews.

    If you review a product on the Site, your review may be posted on the Site, as well as on a partners' network site that shares reviews with other shopping communities. When seeking or receiving customer testimonials or feedback, we disclose that we may post the customer’s first name along with all or a portion of his/her testimonial on the Site unless the customer inform us otherwise by following the instructions we provide.

  7. Merger/Sale.

    In the event that the Site, all or substantially all of its respective assets is acquired, individually identifying information of our members may be one of the assets sold in connection with that transaction, without notice to you or your consent. In such an event, we will notify Site users of such a change in ownership or transfer of assets by posting a notice on the Site.

  8. Bankruptcy

    In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your PII is treated, transferred or used. Therefore, you should know that in such event, your PII may be treated like any other asset of Recyclebank, and sold, transferred or shared with third parties, or used in ways not contemplated or permitted hereunder, without notice to you or your consent.

  9. Protection of Recyclebank and Others.

    We may release PII when we reasonably believe a release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, safety of Recyclebank, our users, our members, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. This however does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing PII from users or members for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this policy.

  10. How Secure Is the PII You Collect?

    We have taken precautions, including the deployment of technological resources and the use of firewalls, systems and procedures, to protect the security of your PII. While no security system is absolutely foolproof, we are constantly reviewing, refining and upgrading our security technology to protect your privacy. If you are accessing the Site as a Recyclebank member, you are issued a password by which to access and secure your account and account information. Although we have taken these precautions, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password, which should not be disclosed by you. When using a shared Device, always be sure to sign off when finished. We do not store your credit/debit card numbers, expiration date or other billing information; we transmit the information only during order processing.

  11. Third Party Links and Websites

    This Privacy Policy applies only to the Site. This Site and e-mails received from Recyclebank may contain advertisements for and links to other websites not operated or controlled by Recyclebank. The policies and procedures we describe here do not apply to those third party sites. We have no control over the content, policies or actions of those sites, even if you are offered services on those sites because you have established an account with the Site. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects PII.

  12. Minors

    You must be 18 years of age or older to transact with Recyclebank via One Twine. We do not knowingly collect information nor transact from minors.

  13. Changing Your Personal Information

    As a Recyclebank member transacting through the Site, you may review, change or correct your PII at any time by accessing your account information on www.recyclebank.com or calling us at the contact information below. You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy and completeness of your personal information, including your e-mail address, and we urge you to review your information regularly to ensure that it is correct and complete.

  14. Updates to the Privacy Policy

    If you choose to visit the Site or use any of our other services, your visit and/or any dispute over privacy is subject to this Privacy Policy, our Terms of Use and the Recyclebank Membership Agreement (if you are or become a Recyclebank member), including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the State of New York.

    It may be appropriate to update our Privacy Policy, the Terms of Use, the Recyclebank Membership Agreement (if applicable) and other terms and conditions from time to time. We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy at any time in our sole discretion, with or without advance notice. In the event of a significant change in the manner in which we maintain or treat PII or the terms of this Privacy Policy, we will display a notice on the Site or send you an e-mail to inform you of these changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you. This Privacy Policy was last updated on the date first indicated above. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the PII we receive from you. Your continued use of this Site shall constitute your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any of its updates.

If you fail to notify Recyclebank immediately upon your knowledge when any of the conditions detailed herein occur, neither Recyclebank nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates or subsidiaries can or will have any responsibility or liability to you or to any other person whose claim may arise through you for any claims with respect to the handling, mishandling or loss of any order.

    YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ACCESS TO AND YOUR USE OF ONE TWINE CONSTITUTES YOUR EXPRESS CONSENT AND AGREEMENT TO ABIDE BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THESE TERMS. RECYCLEBANK MAY AT ANY TIME REVISE THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS BY UPDATING THESE TERMS. YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY SUBSEQUENT REVISIONS AND AGREE TO REVIEW THE TERMS OF USE PERIODICALLY FOR CHANGES TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE TERMS OF USE. THE MOST UP TO DATE VERSION OF THE TERMS OF USE WILL ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR REVIEW ON THE WEBSITE. CONTINUED USE OF ONE TWINE AFTER SUCH CHANGES WILL CONSTITUTE ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH AMENDMENT. These Terms of Use represent the entire agreement between you and RecycleRewards, Inc., concerning the subject matter hereof if you are a user of the Website without Recyclebank membership; if you are a Recyclebank member using and transacting through the Website these Terms apply along with the Recyclebank Membership Agreement and Privacy Policy. Certain policies and/or procedures may be further outlined on One Twine and Recyclebank.com websites, and by your use of Recyclebank websites and services, you agree to be bound by any and all such postings. You may not assign any right or obligations hereunder without first obtaining the prior written consent by an authorized officer of Recyclebank.





    You agree to indemnify and hold Recyclebank and its affiliates, officers, directors, members, shareholders, agents, employees, and licensors harmless from any claim or demand, including attorneys' fees, made by any third party arising out of your violation of these Terms.


    The Website, its content and compilation of content, and all software used on the Website is owned by Recyclebank or its affiliates or agents and is protected by United States Copyright Act of 1976, as amended, and the copyright laws of other countries. All content, logos, designs and icons are proprietary to Recyclebank or its affiliates or agents. The materials provided in this service, including graphic images, buttons and text, may not be copied, reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted or distributed in any way, without the prior written permission, except that you may download, display, or print one copy of the materials on a single computer solely for your personal, non-commercial, home use, provided that you keep intact all copyright, trademark and other proprietary notices. Modification of the materials or use of the materials for any other purpose is a violation of Recyclebank's, its affiliates' or its third party information providers' copyrights and other proprietary rights.


    "One Twine", "Recyclebank" and other marks (including graphics, logos, page headers, button icons, scripts and service names) indicated on our Website are trademarks or trade dress of Recyclebank in the United States and other countries. Recyclebank's trademarks and trade dress may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not Recyclebank's, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers, or in any manner that disparages or discredits Recyclebank or the Website. All other trademarks not owned by Recyclebank that appear on this Website are the property of their respective owners, who may or may not be affiliated with, connected to, or sponsored by Recyclebank.


    Recyclebank reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, all or any portion of the Website with or without notice. You agree that Recyclebank will not be liable to you or to any third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance.


    The license granted under these Terms will terminate if you fail to comply with any term or condition. Upon such violation, you agree to terminate access to the Website. You further agree that Recyclebank, in its sole discretion and with or without notice, may terminate your access to any or all of the Website, and remove and discard any information or content within the Website. You also agree that Recyclebank will not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your access to the Website.


    If any part of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.


    Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your visit to the Website or to products or services sold or distributed by Recyclebank or through any Website will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms.

    There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.

    To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our Legal Department, RecycleRewards, Inc., 151 W. 26th Street, 11th Floor, New York, NY 1001. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Recyclebank will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

    We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.


    By visiting the Website, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of New York, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Recyclebank. These Terms shall inure to the benefit of Recyclebank and its successors, assigns and agents. Recyclebank may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any of its subsidiaries or affiliates without giving you notice, or to any other entity upon prior written notice to you.
