Information Collection and Use
Information Collected Upon Visiting
When you visit the Platform, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, the web-pages you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements or links on which you click.
For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider, the IP address will be different every time you log on. We use Log Data to monitor the use of the Platform and of our Service, and for the Platform’s technical administration.
Information Collected Upon Registration
If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of the Platform, you will be required to become a registered user, and to submit certain personally identifiable information to OurProperty.
This happens in a number of instances, such as when you sign up for the OurProperty service, if you desire to receive marketing materials and information, if you submit a Job, and/or if you create a Services Profile to offer services through OurProperty.
Personally identifiable information that we may collect in such instances may include your full name, password, email address, street address, time zone, telephone number, mobile phone number for text messages, photographs you upload, and other information that you decide to provide us with, or that you decide to include in your public profile.
If you register on the Platform, we may request and store your credit card number and other personally identifiable information.
If you create a Services Profile, you have the opportunity to provide additional information (“Business Information”) such as your business name, logo or avatar, credentials and qualifications, year of business establishment, as well as links to your personal web site, if you have one. You may also upload a photograph portfolio of your previous work.
We may supplement or modify the Business Information to conform to our editorial policies or to add information from your website, materials that you supply to us, or publicly available sources.
When you respond to a Customer’s Job, all of the Business Information is displayed to the Customer. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but may enable you market your services more effectively and potentially win more jobs on the Platform.
If you provide an optional mobile phone number, you may receive notifications on your mobile phone in a number of cases, such as when OurProperty updates you on a new Job offer or service request, or a status change of an existing Job or service request. You may sign up for notifications and modify your notification preferences to better control when OurProperty sends you email or SMS notifications.
If you contact us by email through the Platform, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and use such information to respond to your inquiry.
We may also collect information if you participate in surveys conducted by or on behalf of us or our partner companies, including but not limited to questionnaires, telephone interview and/or discussion groups, and otherwise providing general information about the OurProperty service.
We may create Anonymous Data records from information collected from you (such as information contained in a Job) by excluding information (such as your full name) that make the data personally identifiable to you.
“Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your personal information. Anonymous Data does not permit the identification of individual persons. We reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Data to third parties in our discretion.
