We do disclose certain of your contact information, such as name and address, to some of our sponsors and partners in our Remodelers Advantage University program for other marketing and promotional purposes. We view this disclosure as beneficial to you because you may be contacted with special offers of interest to the remodeling industry. Further, in the event you are contacted via e-mail you should be able to unsubscribe to or cancel any future communications.
Remodelers Advantage cooperates with all law enforcement inquires and with all third parties to enforce their intellectual property or other rights.

5. Third Party Collectors of Information.
Our policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties, whether they are sponsors of our programs, advertisers or sites linked to by our site, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. To the extent that we use third party advertisers, they adhere to their own privacy customs and policies. Since we do not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. E-mail messages may not be secure. Site visitors should be careful when sending confidential information by e-mail.
