Privacy Policy


Saint Christopher and Nevis Solid Waste Management Corporation commonly referred to as SWMC respects and is committed to protecting your privacy. We have, therefore, established this online privacy policy so that you can understand the care with which we intend to treat your personal information.

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address and an email address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit SWMC’s website and its webpages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.

SWMC strives to comply with all applicable international laws that are designed to protect your privacy. Although legal requirements may vary from country to country, SWMC intends to adhere to the principles set forth in this online privacy policy even if, in connection with the above, we transfer your personal information from your country to countries that may not require an “adequate” level of protection for your personal information. In other words, our goal is to provide protection for your personal information no matter where that personal information is collected, transferred, or retained.

Information We Collect

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a set of numbers that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” IP address. When you requests a webpage from within SWMC’s website, our web servers automatically recognize your IP address. The IP address reveals nothing personal about you. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of SWMC’s website, or to cooperate with law enforcement. See also “Disclosure to Third Parties” below. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals.

SWMC may offer access to services that require registration on its website. In that event, your registration and/or contact information may be used to send notification to you of SWMC products and/or services by e-mail. We maintain a strict “No-Spam” policy that means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third party, without your consent or as permitted by this privacy policy.

When you use co-branded services or those provided by a third party within SWMC’s website, your personal information may be passed to that third party provider. Its use of your personal information is subject to their applicable privacy policies.

Information We Do Not Collect

When you visit our website, we do not collect your name, email address or any other personal information unless you provide it to us.


We use cookies as part of a normal business procedure to know about the trends of behaviour of visitors to our site. A cookie is an element of data that our website sends to your browser which is then stored on your system. You can set your browser to prevent this happening. Any information collected in this way can be used to identify you unless you change your browser settings.


If you make a purchase from SWMC, your name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number and expiration date are requested. This information allows your orders to be processed and fulfilled. Credit card and e-mail information will not be shared or sold to third parties for any purpose.

Wherever SWMC collects personal information we make an effort to include a link to this privacy policy on that webpage.


Wherever your personal information may be held within SWMC’s website or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.

SWMC may use industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) software which encodes data transferred between you and the server. SWMC is not responsible for any personal information you disclose to third party affiliates that do not use SSL software or do not offer a secure way to transfer information.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

Third Parties

Some webpages on the SWMC website may include links to third party websites. These websites are governed by their own privacy statements, and SWMC is not responsible for their operations, including but not limited to their information practices. Users submitting information to or through third party web sites should review the privacy statement of those sites before providing them with personal information.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online (e.g., through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere) that information can be collected and used by others.

Disclosure to Third Parties

All information you provide to us will be used for the sole purpose of completing the transaction. None of this information will be sold, rented, leased, or otherwise released to any third party for any reason.

Your Consent to This Agreement

By using SWMC’s website, you consent to the collection and use of information by SWMC as specified above. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
