Disclosure of Information
We may share your information when you consent or direct Stamped Concrete America, Inc. to do so. For example, if a User seeks a Professional Contractor through the Services, we may provide User information to the Professional Contractor and Professional Contractor information to the User. The method of consent will be appropriate for the type of personal information involved and the purposes for which it is collected, used or disclosed. Depending on the circumstances, consent may be express (i.e., you specifically agree either verbally, in writing or electronically) or implied.
Please note that, when you submit a request for products or services, you are requesting to be (and you expressly consent to be) contacted by Stamped Concrete America, Inc., companies that may receive your service request, and Professional Contractors, as the case may be. You consent to be contacted by these parties by telephone, email, mail, text (SMS) messaging, fax, or other reasonable means at any of the residential, cell or fax phone numbers or addresses you provide, even if they are listed on a national "do not call" or "do not contact" list. You agree that these parties may contact you for the purposes of providing the products or services you have requested, marketing, addressing complaints, billing or other account-related matters, or other purposes reasonably related to the services you have requested. Your consent to receive marketing communications is not required as a condition of purchasing any goods or services.
We may contract with other companies to provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use third-party service providers to process payments, host the Properties, provide call center or other customer service, send out information or offers, serve or manage ads, and analyze Services data. Some of these companies collect and store information for us as part of their services, or we may provide them with the elements of your personally identifiable information that they need to deliver their services. These companies are prohibited from using personally identifiable information for any other purpose and will have access only as necessary to perform the applicable services for us.
Professional Contractor Information
We may share a Professional Contractor's business name, owner/proprietor name, business contact information and other information with third parties.
Compliance with Laws and other Policies
We may decide to sell, buy, merge or reorganize our own or other businesses, conduct a securities offering, or do a joint venture or other strategic transaction. We could also be involved in a bankruptcy, liquidation, dissolution or similar transaction. Any such transaction may involve disclosing personal and other information. We would seek protections of confidentiality and restricted use for all information disclosed. In the event that we or all of our assets are acquired in such a transaction, our collected information would be one of the transferred assets.
We may share aggregated, non-personal data with service providers, advertisers or existing or potential business partners.
You may unsubscribe at any time from our email programs by clicking on the unsubscribe link included at the bottom of every email message. We reserve the right to send you service announcements such as notifications or administrative messages, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. In addition, because we must communicate with you about service requests that you have submitted (or received, if you are a Professional Contractor), you cannot opt out of receiving emails relating to those requests.
The security of your personal information is very important to us. However, no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot completely guarantee the protection of any information that is shared with us.
If you create an account, you may be asked to choose a password to protect your account and account information. We recommend that you do not disclose your password to any other person. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account.
The Services are not directed to children under 13, and we do not knowingly collect or store any personally identifiable information about persons under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information of a child under 13, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from our files.
