Our Commitment to Data Security
Wastebits uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards.

In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy
In the event that Wastebits is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our Users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control so that the Wastebits Service can continue operations. 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 will do everything in our power to protect how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used. You will be notified via notice through the Wastebits Services of any such change in ownership or control of your personally identifiable information.
