Effective Date: January 16, 2011
We at ContractorComplaints.com are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) you share with us.
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. In general, you can visit ContractorComplaints.com’s Web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself.
If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information on the Web, we may transfer that Information within ContractorComplaints.com, its affiliated companies, its clients or to ContractorComplaints.com’s third-party service providers, across borders, and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Some of our Web pages utilize “cookies” and other tracking technologies. A “cookie” is a small text file that may be used, for example, to collect information about Web site activity. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information previously indicated by a Web user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them.
You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of website.
To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles with respect to your Personal Information:
Where we collect Personal Information on the Internet, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why Personal Information will be collected and whether we plan to share such Personal Information outside of ContractorComplaints.com or those working on ContractorComplaints.com’s behalf. ContractorComplaints.com does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on ContractorComplaints.com’s behalf unless such transfer is legally required. Sometimes the purpose statement for our websites are set forth in privacy policies specifically set forth or linked to from that page.
With respect to entering your Personal Information on the ContractorComplaints.com website for a home services project, we will notify you if ContractorComplaints.com or ContractorComplaints.com’s network of member contractors will be contacting you with respect to your home services project. If you wish not to share your Personal Information, you are not obligated to fill out any form requesting such information, although we will not be able to provide you with any contractors that may be available in your area. If ContractorComplaints.com is not able to match you with a contractor, it may provide your Personal Information to its affiliates that may be able to match with you a contractor in your area. All the entities mentioned in this paragraph would have access to your Personal Information that you voluntarily submit to ContractorComplaints.com.
Furthermore, by submitting your email address to us on our websites, you consent (“opt-in”) to receive ContractorComplaints.com’s newsletter which may consist of commercial advertisements. ContractorComplaints.com complies with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 and we give you the opportunity to opt-out of commercial email sent by or on behalf of ContractorComplaints.com.
You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to ContractorComplaints.com. The notice we intend to provide where ContractorComplaints.com collects Personal Information on the Web should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of ContractorComplaints.com’s websites, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve our interaction with you.
If you chose to have a relationship with ContractorComplaints.com, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
If you no longer wish to receive communications via email, you may opt-out by clicking here. To have your Personal Information completely removed from our databases, if feasible, simply contact us at info@ContractorComplaints.com and provide the name of the service for which information was provided, your full name, mailing address, phone number and email address so that we may identify you in the opt-out process. Once we receive your instruction, we will promptly take corrective action.
Wherever your Personal Information may be held within ContractorComplaints.com 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.
To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, ContractorComplaints.com wishes to maintain accurate Personal Information. Where we collect Personal Information from you on the Web, our goal is to provide a means of contacting ContractorComplaints.com should you need to update or correct that Information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your Personal Information to info@ContractorComplaints.com and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your Personal Information that we hold as soon as practicable.
ContractorComplaints.com is not structured to attract children. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 13 years of age.
Your California Privacy Rights
California has passed legislation requiring certain specific disclosures be made available to California residents who use the Internet and provide information that may be used for marketing purposes. That legislation requires any business that discloses a customer’s personal information (as defined by the act) to any third party for direct marketing purposes to provide the customer a method for obtaining the names, addresses and certain other specified details of anyone who might have received that personal information.
If you are a California resident you may request this information from ContractorComplaints.com by writing to the address below (“Contacting Us”) with an attention to CA Privacy/Legal Dept. or by sending an e-mail to info@ContractorComplaints.com. Please indicate in your correspondence that you wish to receive “CA Shine the Light Disclosures.” Please be advised that ContractorComplaints.com is not obligated to respond to more than one such request from you per calendar year.
