In addition to this Policy, please also review our Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”), along with such other of our policies we may notify you of from time to time.
The definitions in the applicable Terms of Service apply to this Policy unless stated otherwise.
This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to individuals whom we do not employ or manage, including any of the third parties to whom we may disclose information as set forth in this Policy.
Types of Information We Collect
“Personal Information” or “PII” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Non-Personal Information” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Non-Personal Information does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Information and Non-Personal Information, as described below
Information Collected as Part of the Services
The Services are provided to (a) service providers (“Service Providers”) who have agreed to provide services in connection with ClipCall’s Home Service Program (“Program”) and (b) property managers (“Property Managers”) who have signed up for the Program and/or their tenants (each a “Tenant”). The Services are designed to allow Property Managers and Tenants to submit requests for repairs and maintenance within their building(s) (each a “Building”) that are covered by the Program (“Service Request”) Except where specifically indicated herein, the Policy applies to Property Managers, Tenants, and Service Providers, each of whom are included in the definition of “User” and “you” above. In order to use the Services, Users may be required to provide (and we will collect) certain information with respect to registration on the Services, the submission of Service Requests, and Service Requests Responses, including your name phone number, email address, address, your photo, and any information requested in connection with a Service Request, such as a description of the service needed, which are submitted using a video that the Tenant and/or Property Manager filmed on his/her device within the App interface, or Service Request Response.
For Service Providers, we may also collect details regarding your business, including, but not limited to, a business description, your service category, website, whether you have certain certifications, licenses, and insurance, and your business location.
The Services enable communication between Property Managers, Tenants, and Service Providers relating to a particular Service Request via the App and we will collect and store all such communications, including calls and messages.
Information You Provide To Us
If you, Service Provider, tell us where you are (e.g., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may store and use that information only to provide you with the Services. Location services are an essential part of the Services – we use them to help provide estimated Service Provider arrival times to the Tenant and/or Property Manager, but we do not store this information following confirmation of arrival times (which are used as a metric in the Service Provider quality score). As set forth in the applicable Terms of Service, we require Service Providers to leave location services enabled in the App when using our Services.
If you provide us Feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.
When you post content through the App (such as information (such as videos, images and other information) included in Service Requests, Service Request Responses, or any calls or messages via the App) we will collect and store the information in that posting and the applicable Service Provider, Tenant and Property Manager will be able to see such content.
When you place or receive calls or send messages through the App, those calls are recorded and stored on our servers.
For Service Providers and Property Managers, we will collect all information necessary to complete transactions as applicable to your role (i.e. as Property Manager or Service Provider) as set forth in the applicable Project Agreement. This information may include your name, credit card information, and billing information (collectively, “Payment Information”). Some or all of the Payment Information may be shared with third parties who will help process payments for Projects, as further detailed in the “With whom we Share Information, and for what Purposes” section below. Payment Information is encrypted using industry standard technology.
In addition, for all Service Providers, we collect information required for us to fulfil our obligations with respect to reporting taxable income (i.e., 1099 forms, which is included in the definition of Payment Information).
We also collect other types of PII that you provide to us voluntarily.
We may also collect PII at other points in the Services that state that PII is being collected.
Information we Collect from Others
If you are a Tenant, we will collect certain information about you from Property Managers, such as your name, email address, phone number, and address and will add this to your Account information. We use this information to verify that your Building is within the scope of the Program as well as to otherwise provide the Services.
Information Collected via Technology
Information Collected by Our Servers. To make the Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third-party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.
Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Services, track Users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our Users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Services again, you will be recognized, and the information could then be used to serve information appropriate to your interests. Except as noted in this Policy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to PII.
Mobile Services. We may also collect Non-Personal Information from your mobile device if you have downloaded our App. This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include your location, how you use the App, and the type of device you use. In addition, if our App crashes, we will receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our App. This information is sent to us as aggregated information and is not traceable to any individual and cannot be used to identify an individual.
Screenshots of how the App is being actually used. In order to improve our App and we record and store screenshots of the actual usage of the App.
Pixel Tags. We use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs), which are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send email messages in a format Users can read, and they tell us whether emails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our Users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a User. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our Users’ PII.
How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals. We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that might enable consumers to opt out of tracking on our Services.
Analytics. Other companies may set their own Cookies or similar tools when you visit our Site or use the Services. This includes third party analytics services such as Google Analytics (“Analytics Services”) that we engage to help analyze how users use the Services. We may receive reports based on these parties’ use of these tools on an individual or aggregate basis. We use the information we get from Analytics Services only to improve our Site and Services. The information generated by the Cookies or other technologies about your use of our Site and Services (the “Analytics Information”) is transmitted to the Analytics Services, which use Analytics Information to compile reports on user activity. The Analytics Services may also transfer information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process Analytics Information on their behalf. Each Analytics Services’ ability to use and share Analytics Information is restricted by such Analytics Services’ Terms of Service and Policy. By using our Site and Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by Analytics Services in the manner and for the purposes set out above. For a full list of Analytics Services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
