The information we gather through our Services falls into two categories: (1) information you voluntarily provide to us when you submit a service request, comment or question, or otherwise communicate with us through the Services, and (2) information collected automatically as you use our Services. We may also obtain information about you from third parties and combine it with the information we collect through our Services. The following are examples of the types of information we may collect:
How Information Is Used.
We, our service providers, and other third parties acting on our behalf or with our permission, may use any information collected through the Services, alone or in combination with other information provided by third parties, to:
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies.
Like most website operators, we, our service providers and other third parties acting on our behalf or with our permission, use embedded scripts, "cookies," device identifiers and other tracking technologies to operate, analyze, and improve our Services and tailor content and advertising to user interests. Third-party companies that provide some of the tools and features accessible through our Services and advertisers and other companies involved in the delivery of advertisements you see on our Services and other media also may use such tracking technologies to collect information about your use of our Services.
How We Share Information.
If you submit a service request, we will share your information with third-party contractors and/or third-party contractor network operators that may assist you with your request. If you are a contractor and you use our service feature designed for contractors, we may share your information with third-party contractor network operators and/or other companies that provide specialized marketing services for contractors that may help you grow your business. We reserve the right to share any information we collect about you.
How Information Is Protected.
We use commercially reasonable procedures to protect the personally-identifying information that we collect while it is in our possession. No security system, however, is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
Email communications. You may use the unsubscribe link in the footer of any commercial email message we send.
Children Under 13.
Our Services are intended only to be used by homeowners, contractors, and other adults. Our Services are not directed to children under the age of 13 and we won't knowingly allow anyone under the age of 13 to provide us with personally identifying information online. If you're under 13, please do not submit service requests.
