OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
We strive to be transparent in our data collection and use practices. This is the type of personal information we may collect about you.
1. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION
We collect the following types of information about you:
Information directly provided by you: When registering for an account, we ask for certain information that we collect from each user. Also, at times we may retain any information voluntarily provided by you, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, register for access to the services or use certain services, which typically include your (i) name; (ii) telephone number; (iii) email addresses; (iv) home addresses; (v) information about your home; (vi) your payment details; (vii) your IP address; and (viii) any other personal information which you give us in connection with the services.
Your account information may be available, in whole or in part, to other users or cleaning service providers who belong to our Company Platforms. Your name, network name, profile picture may be available in search results through our Company Platforms and networks. The only information besides your name, network name and profile picture that may be accessed by others is the information that you specifically allow them to see as per your privacy settings.
Information received from third parties: Through the functionality of our Company Platforms, we may receive information about you from third parties. This information may be stored along with the other personal information we’ve gathered directly from you. From time to time, we may send you emails containing newsletters or other updates. If you do not wish to receive such email messages, you may opt out by unsubscribing from this option. We may also use your information to send you service-related emails (e.g., account verification, reminders, changes/updates to features of the service, technical and security notices).
Information collected through technology: We automatically collect certain types of information when you access and use our Site. Specifically, when you visit our Site, we may send one or more cookies — a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and allows us to help you log into our system faster and enhance your navigation through the Site and our other Company Platforms. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Site, our Company Platforms, and our services (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Company Platforms) as well as track your usage of the Company platforms over time. We may compile into a log file all collected data from your browser or mobile device each time you access and use the Company Platforms (the “Log File Data”). The Log File Data may include anonymous information, such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, information about your mobile device, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. We may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons), which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns of our users. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails were opened and which links were clicked on. This information provides us with a more accurate reporting as to how we can improve our services of the Company Platforms by adding new feature that best fit your needs. All of these tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit, the third party applications you use, and other information that assists us in analyzing and improving the Site.
We use or may use the data collected through cookies, log files, device identifiers, and clear gifs information to:
(a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during next time you visit the Company Platforms;
(b) provide custom, personalized content and information;
(c) to provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Company Platforms;
(d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, usage, and demographic patterns on our Company Platforms;
(e) diagnose or fix technology problems; and
(f) help the overall efficiency of the Company Platforms;
Your privacy is important to us. We only share your personal information in very limited circumstances.
2. HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We will not rent or sell your information for marketing purposes.
Who we may share your information with: We may share your information with those that provide us with technology services (e.g. web hosting and analytics services), but strictly for the purpose of carrying out their work for us. We may be required to share your information with law enforcement or other third parties when compelled by court order, legal processes, statutes and regulations, or our Terms and Conditions of Service. Also, we may share your information if we believe, in good faith, that disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property or personal safety of our users. We may share aggregate or anonymous data, including personal data that has been stripped of personally identifying characteristics, with third parties.
What happens in the event of a change of control within the Company: If we sell, divest or transfer the business or a portion of our business, your information may be transferred, provided that the new provider has agreed to data privacy standards no less stringent than our own. We may also transfer your personal information – under the same conditions – in the course of mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions, reorganizations, liquidations, similar transactions or proceedings involving all or a portion of our business.
We take strong measures to keep your data safe and secure.
3. HOW WE STORE AND PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
Storage and processing: The information collected through our Site may be stored and processed in any country in which Manor Cleaning Services or its subsidiaries, affiliates or service providers maintain facilities.
Keeping your information safe: We maintain strict administrative, technical and physical procedures to protect information stored in our servers, which are located in the United States. Access to information is limited (through user/password credentials and software systems) to only those employees who require it to perform their job functions. We use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard the account registration process and sign-up information.
