Effective January 1, 2014
Inherent to transacting on the Internet is the collection of some personal information. Neon Blowfish, LLC ("Neon Blowfish") is committed to protecting your personal information and privacy. This Privacy Statement applies exclusively to the site www.RemodelQA.com. This policy describes the personal information we collect from you and how we use and secure it. "Personal Information" defines information such as name and email that can identify an individual.
Because your privacy is important to us, RemodelQA® operates by the following principles.
Capitalized terms not defined in this Agreement will have the meanings set forth in the Terms of Service.
You may browse the RemodelQA® site without providing any personal information that may be used to identify you personally ("Personally Identifiable Information" or "PII"). If you choose to provide us with your PII, you are agreeing to the processing and storage of your information in the United States and countries outside of the United States which may have data protection laws that differ from laws in your country.
RemodelQA® explicitly asks when it needs PII. To help facilitate the question and response process, RemodelQA requires basic data such as email address. Expert applicants and/or referral participants may be asked for additional information, such as full names, addresses, telephone numbers, and professional license and certification information. Experts who win prizes on the site may be required to provide shipment addresses. If you choose to use our referral program to recommend potential Experts to the site, to tell a friend or others about RemodelQA, or send a copy of a question and answer sequence to a friend, you may need to provide your and their email addresses (and possibly their and your names). If you choose to have RemodelQA notify you of responses to your questions via text message, you will be asked for your mobile phone number and mobile carrier name. Other PII may be requested in certain circumstances or collected on a voluntary basis such as on users' profile or signature pages.
In some cases, RemodelQA® supplements portions of the PII you provide with other data received from third parties, or data sent to us from your web browser including (depending on its settings) your IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data ("Usage Statistics").
