We endeavor to protect our users’ private information to the greatest extent possible, but we cannot promise, and users should not expect, that personal information or private communications will always remain private.

REGISTRATION OF SUBCONTRACTORS, GENERAL CONTRACTORS, HOMEOWNERS AND SUPPLIERS
In order to submit a project request or enroll as a subcontractor; a user must register with our website, including creating a unique username and password.

By submitting a project request or enrolling as a subcontractor, a user expressly consents to being contacted by us by phone, email address or mail.

DATA COLLECTION

Cookies:
A cookie is a very small file stored on the user’s hard drive that identifies the user to our website and assists us in data collection. We use both session cookies, which terminate when the user’s browser is closed, and persistent cookies, which must be manually deleted. Session cookies allow our system to remember information about the user only during that internet browser session. Persistent cookies allow our system to remember our users, meaning that they will not be required to log in every time that they visit our website. Users may reject these cookies, or manually delete them.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. We do, however, offer several features only available through the use of a cookie; users who have rejected our cookies may not be able to access these features.

Log Files:
We employ log files, which track certain information about your internet connection, including internet protocol addresses and internet service provider type. These log files are not linked to personally identifiable information of any user. By tracking this information, we are better able to analyze our users’ needs and improve our services and website.
