What Information About Me Is Collected and Stored?
We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Platform personal information and non-personal information.  Personal information is information that you and your builder, vendor, subcontractor, or retail partner supply to us, as described more fully below, i.e., when you use our Services, obtain a subscription, complete  a  survey,  register  on  the  Platform  upload  content,  participate  in  a  community,  or  provide  your  e-mail address.  Personal information is any information that can individually identify you and includes, among other things, your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, credit card, billing and contact information.   Non-personal  information  includes  information  that  does  not  personally  identify  you,  but  it  may  include  tracking  and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the Platform and the Internet.
Personal Information
As  a  general  matter,  you  can  use  and  browse  the  Platform  without  submitting  your  personal  information  to  us.  However,  there  are  a  number  of  circumstances  in  which  you  may  supply  us  or  our  agents  with  your  personal information.  The following lists the most common ways in which we may collect your personal information.
Non-Personal Information
In  addition,  when  you  interact  with  the  Platform,  we  may  collect  certain  information  that  does  not  identify  you individually  and  our  servers  may  automatically  keep  an  activity  log  of  your  use  of  our  Platform  (“Non-Personal Information”). Generally, we collect and store the following categories of Non-Personal Information:
Collection of Your Source IP Address/Location Information
The Platform works best when we can also collect your location information.   We may collect and store location information about you on the Platform and associated with your account that you volunteer on the Platform or enable through the Platform or your device.  We will not collect any location information that you do not volunteer or enable.  We will delete any location information that you request is deleted.  We do collect and store your device’s source IP address which may disclose the location of your device at the time you access the Platform

Emails and Other Communications.  If you would like to alter the type of communications you receive from us, including  opting  out  of  promotional  communications  from  us,  you  may  do  so  at  any  time  by  updating  the communication preferences specified in your account profile through the Platform.  Please note that this may affect your ability to access certain products and services, and we may continue to send non-promotional communications such as staffing confirmations, surveys, and other information about your use of the Service. If you refer others to us using our email functionality, please note that they may choose not to receive any promotional emails from us in the future by following the opt-out instructions in the email invitation.
