Remodelers Advantage

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to Remodelers Advantage. As part of the normal operation of our web site and other operations, we collect and, in some cases, disclose information about you. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect about you and what may happen to that information.

If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, please contact us at info@RemodelersAdvantage.com. As described below, some of your personally identifiable information is disclosed to third parties and used by us and third parties. By accepting the Terms of Use, you expressly consent to such use and disclosure of your personally identifiable information.

1. Information We Collect.
We may collect certain information from you if you purchase or subscribe to one of our products or services. This would include subscribing to our newsletter, PowerTips, purchasing one of our books or periodicals in our Store, signing up as a Member of one of our Membership Groups, or enrolling in our training program, Remodelers Advantage University. The information we collect will be self-evident from the order, registration or subscription form but will generally include your name, address, phone number, email address and the size of your business. If you are purchasing a product or service we will also ask for your credit card information and shipping address.

In the course of using our site, we may automatically track certain information about you. This information could include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, and your IP address. Many web sites automatically collect this information.

In addition, we may use cookies on certain pages of our site. Among other reasons, cookies allow you to enter your password less frequently during a session. Cookies can also help us provide information which is targeted to your interests. Cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on our site. Most cookies are “session cookies,” meaning that they are automatically deleted at the end of a session. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may be required to reenter your password more frequently during a session.

2. Our Use of Your Information.
We internally use personally identifiable information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our site’s content and layout. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and better tailor it to meet our users’ needs.

We may also use personally identifiable information about you to deliver information to you that, in some cases, are targeted to your interests. For example, if we have your e-mail address, you are automatically subscribed to our complimentary electronic newsletter, PowerTips. If you would prefer not to receive the newsletter, the e-mail containing the newsletter contains a link where you can easily cancel your subscription.
We may use your email address and, in rare situations, your mailing address or phone number, to contact you regarding our programs or membership administrative notices from time to time.

3. Our Disclosure of Your Information.
We do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party. 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.

Unfortunately, due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Further, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will remain private.

4. Reviewing and Changing Your Personally Identifiable Information
Upon your request, we will remove your credit card number and credit card expiration date from our databases. To make this request, contact us at info@RemodelersAdvantage.com. We will retain in our files information you have requested to remove in some circumstances, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our terms of use for the web site. Further, such prior information is never completely removed from our databases due to technical constraints and the fact that we back up our systems. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.

You must promptly update your information if it changes.

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.

6. Security.
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.

7. General.
This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to any terms of use published on our web site from time to time. We reserve the right to change this policy at any time. If you have any concerns about our use of your information or about this Privacy Policy, please send an e-mail to: info@RemodelersAdvantage.com. We will make every reasonable effort to address your concerns and remedy any problems you bring to our attention.
