Our Platforms are intended for use by adults 18 years of age or older and are therefore not directed to anyone younger than 18 (“Minors”). We do not knowingly collect, nor use, and therefore do not disclose, information from Minors. Children younger than 13 should always get permission from their parents before sending personal information (such as name, email or physical addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet. If we learn we have collected or received Personal Information from a child under 13 without parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe or know that we have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us as provided in the Contact Us section below. If you are under 18 years old, you should not use, register, nor provide any information on our Platforms (including your name, screen name, user name, address, telephone number, email address) and you should refrain from using the Platforms’ features.
What Information Do We Collect and How Is it Collected?
We collect several types of Information (as defined below) from and about our customers, prospective customers, and the users of our Platforms.
We collect some information overtly by explicitly asking that you share such information with us; other information is collected automatically as you navigate through our Platforms, and some information about you is obtained from third parties (such as social media sites or apps) who have collected your information, or with whom you have previously shared your information pursuant to their privacy policies.
The information we collect overtly or explicitly includes but is not limited to information which personally identifies you, for instance, name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card, or payment information ("Personal Information"). We only collect Personal Information when you provide it to us, whether in person, over the phone, via chat, teleconference, email, or through any other interaction you may have with our Platforms (when you fill out a form, participate in a sweepstake or any other game or survey, post a comment or review, make a query, or transact with us (make purchases) in our Platforms).
The Information we collect automatically as you navigate through our Platforms is information which on its own would not identify you (non-identifiable information), and it includes but is not limited to your gender, ethnicity, internet connection, “IP” address, browser type, geolocation, online identifier, equipment information (operating system), as well as usage, and behavior details over time (for instance, time and date of visits to the site). Some of this information is shared by your internet provider, or other third parties, and it is gathered using automatic data collection technology, cookies, flash cookies, web beacons, embedded pixels, local data storage, and other tracking technologies.
Finally, we also collect information from third parties with whom we have a contractual relationship. These third parties may share either non-identifiable information or Personal Information and they do so pursuant to their policies, and the terms under which you may have agreed to have them collect, use, process, protect, store or share your information. Within any of our Platforms with purchase functionality or Platforms which we may use to assist us with recruiting employees, we would collect Personal Information, non-identifiable information, as well as any other information which is explicitly requested form you. Strand Builder is not responsible for the accuracy of the information about you which third parties share with us or how such third parties collect, use, process, protect, store, or share your information, and you should refer to those parties’ privacy policies to find out.
All of the Information we collect from you over time is eventually attached to an individual profile we create to identify you once you provide us with your Personal Information or become a client.
Why Do We Collect Information and How Do We Use It?
We collect Information about and from you to:
- Stay in touch and determine how and when you want to be contacted
- Deliver information you requested
- Notify you of Strand Builder’s latest offers and promotions (marketing and advertising)
- Manage our business relationship if you are a client, for instance by sending appointment reminders, invoices, important notices
- Tailor our offers to fit your needs
- Create and maintain a personal profile about you and recognize when you return to our Platforms
- Improve our Platforms, speed up your searches, estimate our audience size and usage patterns
- Assist our advertising partners to display Strand Builder offers as you browse the internet
- Fulfill any purpose we may have disclosed or for which you consented, or provided the Information
- Comply with any legal requirement
You Have Options
Strand Builder’s goal is to communicate with you in the manner you prefer and opting to receive marketing and advertising communications is not a condition for our services.
If you do not want Strand Builder to use your Information for any of the purposes above or you want to update or tailor your preferences about how to be contacted, please refer to the Contact Us section or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, we do not control third parties' collection or use of your Information. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to manage your information. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") on the NAI's website.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Strand Builder will not rent or sell Information, but Strand Builder works with a variety of third parties and service providers to help provide you with our product or services and we may share your Information with them to support these efforts. We may share your Information with third parties for Strand Builder’s and their affiliates’ marketing purposes, but we do not share your Personal Information with unrelated third parties for their marketing purposes. Additionally, Strand Builder shares your Information under the circumstances described in this section.
- Social Networking Sites, third party platforms, and software. When you interact with third party websites or platforms which are unrelated to and not under Strand Builder’s control, such as social media or networking sites, analytics services, or an advertising network partner these third parties may require that You or Strand Builder share your Information. If you agree to interacting with those third party websites or platforms, such as by clicking on a Strand Builder ad on Facebook, or by logging in to your Skype account for a teleconference with a Strand Builder employee, it means that you are consenting to our sharing of your Personal Information with those third party websites or platforms, and acknowledge that we will do so. Please note that once we share or post your Personal Information with such company, your Personal Information becomes subject to the third party’s privacy practices and may become public depending on those third party’s practices and your agreement with them. Strand Builder will have no way to control what that company does with your Information. Strand Builder explicitly disclaims responsibility for or liability for the privacy practices or actions of third parties. Most of these third parties will not change their tracking practices in response to “do-not-track” signals from your web browser and we do not have any contractual safeguards in place that would require them to do so.
- Affiliates. Strand Builder may share your Information with its affiliates, subsidiaries, or parent companies (“Affiliates”) for different purposes, including but not limited to, to provide services to you, or to allow our Affiliates to provide services to Us, and or to coordinate Strand Builder’s business activities and services, and to understand and take advantage of market opportunities.
- Service Providers. Strand Builder shares your Personal Information on a need to know basis with third-party service providers when it is necessary for those third parties to provide services to you personally, or on Strand Builder’s behalf or to Strand Builder, these service providers may include but are not limited to marketing companies, credit card companies, mailing services, calling centers, or subcontracting customer service agencies.
- Business Reasons. Strand Builder may disclose Personal Information about you in connection with a merger, bankruptcy, acquisition, dissolution, reorganization.
Strand Builder places great importance on the security of any Information collected from its clients and visitors. We have implemented technical and organizational measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, destruction, or disclosure, by encrypting our Platforms, by reviewing and updating our information collection, storage and processing practices periodically, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems. We also restrict access to Personal Information to Strand Builder employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations. Please note, however, that although at Strand Builder we strive to adhere to industry standards of security to protect your Personal Information, Strand Builder is unable to guarantee the safety of your Personal Information, including with respect to unauthorized access or use of your data by third parties, and the internet is not fully secure. The measures we use are appropriate for the type of Information we collect. We cannot promise that your use of our Platforms will be completely safe. We encourage you to use caution when using the Internet and our Platforms.
