LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME is dedicated to providing you with a compelling service to help you make the most of your time on the Internet. The more we know about you, the better we can serve your needs.
We recognize that we need to earn your trust, and firmly believe that you should know exactly what personally identifying information we collect and how we’re going to use it before you share it with us.
This policy describes how LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME collects, uses, shares, and secures information on our owned and operated websites, mobile applications and other properties, as well as the services we use to communicate with consumers and to facilitate communications between consumers and the businesses who advertise with us. Although you should read through the entire policy for complete information, the following provides a summary of some of the most important aspects of our privacy practices:
Personally identifying information that you provide to LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME will not be made available to third parties outside of LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME without your explicit permission.
WHAT IS “PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION”?
“Personally identifying information” is information that can be explicitly used to identify and/or contact you as an individual. This includes information like your real name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number, etc.
On occasion, LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME may ask you for personal information such as your name, phone number or address. We do this when you make purchases, register to advertise or offer services that require registration or subscription. LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME needs to collect this information for fulfilling the order, and for tracking/verifying compliance with LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME policies. It may also be needed for purposes of compliance with federal, provincial and local laws and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes. When we intend to use your personal information, we tell you up front. This way you can decide whether you want to give us the information or not. LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME collects personally identifying information about you only when you specifically and knowingly provide it to us.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Users should be aware that when you are on LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME pages that take you outside our service. For example, if you “click” on a banner advertisement, the “click” takes you off LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME’s logo as part of a co-branding agreement.
LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME’s policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
CREDIT CARD INFORMATION
We have done everything necessary to make your transaction a safe one. We have done the following:
1) SSL encrypted site for 100% credit card security.
2) We do not store credit card numbers on WWW.LOCALCONTRACTORNEARME.COM
3) Using your credit card on our website is as safe as using credit card in your local store.
In fact, you have more to worry at the local store or a café than using a credit card on our site. Occasionally, we have customers who ask if they can call to give out their credit card information over the phone instead. But that is unnecessary as most internet merchants who provide this phone service will then just turn around and process your card through their internet site anyways. Net difference to you ZERO! You are SAFE with us!
We use 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption throughout our whole order process. We use a real time, online, Authorize.Net Secure payment gateway. Additional protection during authorization includes fraud screening of each transaction prior to submission, Address Verification Service (AVS) and card verification value 2 (CVV2).
• We use your personally-identifiable information to provide you with products, services, and information, including more relevant search results and advertising and to make sharing with others quicker and easier, while enabling you to maintain control of that sharing.
• We may share your personally-identifiable information with third parties in some situations, such as if you decide to communicate with a company that advertises through our application.
• We are committed to working with you to reach the right balance of what information we collect, use, and share, by providing you with ways to control information that we collect, through our opt-out mechanisms.
• We take reasonable measures to secure your sensitive personally-identifiable information, but we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your sensitive personally-identifiable information will remain secure in all circumstances.
Collection Of Information
When we use the term “information” we are referring to both personally-identifiable information and non-personally-identifiable information that we collect about you. “Personally-identifiable information” refers to information that personally identifies you, or can reasonably be linked to you by us. Personally-identifiable information can either be “sensitive” or “non-sensitive.” “Sensitive personally-identifiable information” refers to information that is generally considered confidential such as your financial account number (e.g credit card number), billing information and precise location. “Non-sensitive personally-identifiable information” refers to information that is generally not considered confidential such as your name, mail or email address, telephone number, employer name or email address if you choose to refer them to us, general geographic information (e.g., your city or state), account preferences, and business information. “Non-personally-identifiable information” refers to information that does not specifically identify you, or has been processed so as to effectively prevent your identification, and may include data associated with a particular computer or device you are using that does not personally identify you.
Use Of Information
Our primary purpose in collecting information about you is to help you grow your business when you advertise with us and provide you with products, services, information, and advertisements that match your interests and preferences. For example, we may use this information to fulfill your order, respond to your inquiries, administer your account, send marketing, assess your needs and interests in order to better tailor offers and/or advertising, improve our website and marketing, conduct research, display content based upon your interests, allow you to search information on our site, and/or list you in our search and CONTRACTOR services. We do this on behalf of ourselves and the businesses which advertise with us. We also use traffic data received through our technologies, in conjunction with third-party demographic and interest-based data, to provide services to our Customers such as tools to see how their website or mobile applications are used.
How Information Is Collected
We collect information from you by asking that you provide it to us on-line, through a mobile application or device or via other means by which we communicate with you. We also collect information when you choose to communicate with us or when you choose to utilize our services to communicate with other users of our services or with the businesses who advertise with us. We also collect information about your interactions with third-party websites and applications that use our technologies, and may combine the information we collect about you with additional demographic and interest-based data from third-party providers. This may include:
a. Identification data (e.g. name, username, password, address, telephone number, mobile number, email address);
b. Profile information (e.g. age, gender, country of residence, language preference, business listings and any information that you choose to make available as part of your LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME user profile);
c. Products or services ordered and delivered;
d. List of your contacts and related data (we will give you a
choice as to when and whether you want LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME to use contact lists from other services to populate your LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME provided contacts list);
e. The content of any communications you choose to have with us or with any of our other users or advertisers via the services we make available (e.g. reviews, e-mails, instant messages, recorded telephone calls (including those which we record or store on behalf of our advertisers), user-generated content, etc.); and
f. Data from surveys in which you participate.
We may also collect information from you automatically. For instance, we, like many websites and applications, automatically collect information including the computer or wireless device you use, unique device identifier, location data, the type of browser and operating system that you use, the internet provider or wireless carrier you use, the webpages or applications you view, the time and duration of your visits, the search queries that you enter, and how you interact with advertising. Among other things, we use the following technologies to automatically collect information:
• “Unique Identifiers” are unique strings of characters that are used to identify you, your computer, or your mobile device. Such identifiers may be preset on your computer or mobile device. We may use unique identifiers to recognize you when you visit our sites or use our mobile applications.
• “Local Shared Objects,” “LSO’s,” or “Flash Cookies” are data files similar to cookies, except that they can store more complex data. These are used to remember settings, preferences, and usage, particularly for video, interactive gaming, and other similar services. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove them. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for LSO’s or Flash Cookies click here.
• “Telephone Caller ID” refers to information automatically transmitted about you when you call someone. If you call a telephone number that we have provided to you, your caller ID may be recorded. Most telephone providers will, upon request, block your caller ID. Such services may not always be effective if you choose to call a pay-per-call (900) or toll-free number.
• “Web beacons” or “clear pixels” are small graphic images on a Web page or in an e-mail that can be used for such things as recording the pages and advertisements clicked on by users, or tracking the performance of e-mail marketing campaigns.
• A “web server log” is a record of activity created by the computer that delivers the webpages you request to your browser. For example, a web server log may record the search term you entered or the link you clicked to bring you the webpage. The Web server log also may record information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser by the server.
• A “widget” is a program or application that can be embedded in a web page or mobile application. Widgets can provide real-time information, such as stock quotes or weather reports, or take information, such as restaurant reservations or online food orders. Widgets are often provided and hosted by a third party, and may allow that third party to collect data about users viewing that page or interacting with that widget, possibly subject to privacy policies other than LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME’s. We also use Social Media Features such as the Facebook Like button. In addition to information you fill in, these features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly.
• You can log in to our site using “sign-in services” such as Facebook Connect or an Open ID provider. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personally-identifiable information with us, such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form, or to post information to your account.
• “Geo-location technologies” refers to technologies that permit us to determine your location. We may ask you to manually provide precise location information on our website, or to enable your mobile device to send us precise location information in order to provide you with relevant services in your area.
• We may also automatically use information from your web server or computer to determine general location information, such as the city in which you live.
In addition to information that we collect from you, we may collect information about you from third parties for purposes such as ad targeting, optimization and reporting.
We may share information about you with third parties in certain circumstances including in the following situations.
Advertisers: If you decide to communicate with a company that advertises with us, for example by calling a telephone number or clicking a link that we provide for that advertiser, we may share non-sensitive personally-identifiable information with the advertiser, including non-sensitive personally-identifiable information that might help the advertiser to contact you, including device identifiers, names of applications associated with a click/install and click/install times.
Advertising INSIDERs: A third party may use technology (e.g., a cookie) to collect non-sensitive personally-identifiable information about your use of our website or mobile applications so that they can provide advertising about products and services tailored to your interests. If you would like to opt-out of having third party advertising INSIDERs use information that LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME has shared with them to target advertising to you please see the instructions in the section titled “What Privacy Choices Do I Have” below.
Affiliates: We may share all types of information with the LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME family of companies, including all companies doing business under either the LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME brand or LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME INSIDER, for the purpose of fulfilling the services that we provide to our customers and to customize your experience.
Blogs, Online Postings, and Testimonials: We may share with the public any information that you publish in conjunction with an on-line review, comment, blog, or message board. This may include non-sensitive personal information that identifies you.
Business Transition. In the event that we, or part, or all, of our assets are acquired, we may share all types of information with the acquiring company. You will be notified via email or a notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your personally-identifiable information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personally-identifiable information.
Law Enforcement: We may report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful, or that we believe may aid a law enforcement investigation. In addition, we reserve the right to release all types of information to law enforcement agencies if we determine, in our sole judgment, that either you have violated our policies, or the release of information about you may protect the rights, property or safety of us or another person.
Legal Processes: We may share all types of information with others as required by, or permitted by, law. This may include sharing all types of information with governmental entities, or third parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, other legal process, or as we believe is necessary to exercise our legal rights, to defend against legal claims that have been brought against us, or to defend against possible legal claims that we determine in our sole discretion might be brought against us.
Other Third Parties (without your consent): We may share non-personally-identifiable information with other third parties that are not described above. When we do so we endeavor to either aggregate or de-identify the information so that a third party would not be likely to link data to you, your computer, or your device. Aggregation means that we combine the non-personally-identifiable information of numerous people together so that the data does not relate to any one person. De-identify means that we remove or change (e.g., hash) certain pieces of information that might be used to link data to a particular person.
Other Third Parties (with your consent): We may share any information, including sensitive personally-identifiable information, with other third parties that are not described above if you give us consent to do so.
Securing Your Information
We take our commitment to securing personally-identifiable information in our possession seriously. When you provide your credit card number or contact information we protect your information during transmission and storage through the use of encryption. We also encrypt sensitive data such as geo-location information in transmission. For other types of information, we use reasonable measures to help prevent the information from becoming disclosed to individuals who are not described in this policy. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. No security measures are perfect and we cannot promise that the information about you will remain secure under all circumstances.
Your Privacy Choices
Revising Your Information: If your personally-identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our services, you may correct, update, or delete information about you, or ask that it be removed from public forums such as directories, blogs, or testimonials by logging in and viewing your user profile (e.g., the “My Account” link on Homeprosaver.com) or by contacting us at the email address, telephone number, or mailing address indicated below. If you have previously consented to the use of your location data as outlined within this policy, you may opt out at the device level. We attempt to respond to your requests within 30 days. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personally-identifiable information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
Behaviorally Targeted Advertising: Behaviorally targeted advertising refers to the use of information about you in order to provide advertising that is tailored to your interests. We participate in several types of behaviorally targeted advertising. If you would like to opt-out of receiving advertising that is tailored to you, you have the following options:
• Advertising Provided by LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME on LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME Websites: If you would like to manage some of the information that LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME uses about you to tailor the advertising that you see on the websites and mobile applications that we own or operate to your interests, or if you would like to opt-out of LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME using any personally-identifiable information about you to tailor its advertising, you can do so by emailing us.

• Non-Personally-Identifiable Mobile Profiles: If you do not want LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEAR ME to maintain non-personally identifiable user profiles based on your mobile device’s location data (in addition to other opt-outs that may be available through your mobile device or apps), you can opt out through banner ads you receive from us on your phone.
Other Contractual Relationships: If you enter into a separate contractual relationship with us which requires, or contemplates, collecting, using, sharing, or securing information about you in a manner that is different than that which is described in this policy, the terms of that contract will apply.
Referral Services: If you choose our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site.

- in case of sale of personal information or disclosure for a business purpose, two separate lists where we disclose:
- for sales, the personal information categories purchased by each category of recipient; and
- for disclosures for a business purpose, the personal information categories obtained by each category of recipient.
The disclosure described above will be limited to the personal information collected or used over the past 12 months.

How to exercise your rights
To exercise the rights described above, you need to submit your verifiable request to us by contacting us via the details provided in this document.
For us to respond to your request, it’s necessary that we know who you are. Therefore, you can only exercise the above rights by making a verifiable request which must:
- provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative;
- describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We will not respond to any request if we are unable to verify your identity and therefore confirm the personal information in our possession actually relates to you.
