2. Collection of Information
a. We collect information you provide to us about yourself when you use the Site. Such information may include (but is not limited to) your and/or your company’s name, address, telephone number, email address, requirements for a fence, and payment details related to a specific transaction, including credit card and billing information. You may provide this information when you request to be put in touch with a Service Professional. If you are a Service Professional, you may provide information such as (but not limited to) your pricing data, your company’s geographical boundaries, and your employees’ names and qualifications. Such information may be provided when you create an account with Fence Hub.
b. Some information you post to the Site, such as (but not limited to) photos or reviews, or a company’s identifying information in the case of a Service Professional, may be used for public display and consumption. By posting such information to the Site, you authorize Fence Hub to display this material publicly.
d. If you purchase or sell products or services, or otherwise enter into a transaction with us or with a third party via the Site, we will collect certain information from you regarding your payment information, pricing, and your credit card information. In the case of a third party transaction, we will pass along to such third party the payment information necessary to process and complete the transaction. Use of such information for other purposes is strictly forbidden. We use commercially reasonable methods of encrypting and securing your personal and financial information. However, because no method of encryption on the Internet is completely secure, we cannot guarantee the protection of any information you provide to us.
e. We collect and store information about your use of the Site, including (but not limited to) page views, viewing times, searches, as well as your browser type, device type, IP address, referring and requested web pages, visited web pages, and cookies.
f. You may be able to connect your Fence Hub profile to other social network profiles and, if you so choose, we may collect certain information from your other social network profiles as a part of that connection process. In such an instance, you will be given a choice as to what information you wish to share among the profiles.
