Scrapr (hereinafter referred to as "Scrapr," "the Company," "we," "us," or "our") respects your privacy and is dedicated to safeguarding it in compliance with our privacy policies. This policy outlines:
  • The types of information Scrapr may gather from you when you utilize its mobile application, websites, and other online services (collectively referred to as "Services").
  • Scrapr's practices for collecting, utilizing, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.
This policy solely pertains to the information Scrapr gathers through its Services, including email, text, and other electronic communications sent through or in association with its Services.
This policy does not extend to information provided to, or gathered by, any third-party entities, such as Scrapr Partner where scrap pick up/or payments are processed via Scrapr's Services, and social networks utilized in conjunction with Scrapr's Services. Scrapr advises consulting directly with such third-parties regarding their privacy practices.
Please carefully review this policy to understand Scrapr's guidelines and practices concerning your information and how it will be handled. By accessing or using Scrapr's Services and/or registering for an account with Scrapr, you consent to this privacy policy and agree to Scrapr's collection, usage, disclosure, retention, and protection of your personal information as outlined herein. Failure to provide the required information may result in Scrapr being unable to offer all of its Services to you.
Your data controller is responsible for adhering to its privacy standards and applicable national laws concerning the collection, usage, disclosure, retention, and protection of your personal information. The data controller may transfer data to other members of Scrapr as described in this Privacy Policy. Scrapr may process and retain your personal information on its servers in India, where its data centres are located, and/or on servers of third parties (inside or outside India) with whom Scrapr has contractual relationships.
This policy may undergo revisions periodically. Your continued usage of Scrapr's Services after any modifications constitute acceptance of those changes. Therefore, please review the policy periodically for updates.
