About Our Products and Services
We provide the Products and Services to our customers under an agreement with them and solely for their benefit and, when applicable, the benefit of their personnel and other personnel authorized by them
as users of the Products and Services (“Authorized Users”). Our customers can efficiently store and analyze all their data in the Products and Services.
This policy does not apply to the content that our customers and their Authorized Users upload and store in the Products and Services (“Customer Content”). In those circumstances:
(a) HOMEE is processing Customer Content on behalf of a customer and that customer is responsible for the collection and use of your data; and
(b) that customer’s privacy notice will apply to the customer’s collection and use of such Customer Content.
We process Customer Content in accordance with our customers’ instructions. The customer’s agreement with HOMEE governs our use of and processing of Customer Content in these circumstances. For such data, the customer is the “data controller” (for purposes of GDPR) or the “business” (for purposes of the CCPA) and is responsible for most aspects of the processing of your personal information. In such circumstances you should refer to their privacy notice and direct any queries to them. If we receive any rights requests concerning instances where we act as data processor, we will forward your query on to the relevant customer. For more information about our data collection and use in connection with our Products and Services see the section “Information We Collect Automatically” below.
What information do we collect?
Information You Provide to Us
HOMEE requires each customer to provide us with personal information (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”) to access and use our Products and Services. Personally Identifiable Information is captured when visiting our website or speaks on the phone with or emails a HOMEE employee, and willingly discloses that information. This disclosure may occur when a visitor registers on our website, engages in transactions, contacts customer service, or participates in contests, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, requests for suggestions, or other aspects of services offered by HOMEE.
Personally Identifiable Information includes: (i) “Contact Data” (such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address); (ii) “Financial Data” (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code or bank account information); (iii) “Demographic Data” (such as your zip code and sex).
Calls/Electronic Communications. In the regular course of our business, HOMEE may monitor and record phone conversations, email communications or video teleconferences between you and HOMEE employees for training and quality assurance purposes. We may receive a confirmation when you open
or click on content in an email from us, which helps us make our communications to you more useful and interesting.
Surveys, Sweepstakes, and Contests. We may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys on our site, to measure customer satisfaction. If you participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys, sweepstakes, or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes name, email address, and mailing address.
Testimonials and Reviews. We may display personal testimonials of satisfied customers. We will ask for your specific consent as part of the survey. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at email@example.com. We may also display customer reviews. If you provide a review that we display and wish to update or delete it, you can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Financial, Banking, and Payment Card Data. In the regular course of our business, HOMEE does not electronically store, process, or transmit any banking or cardholder data of its customers on our systems or premises, but relies entirely on third parties to handle these functions. All processing of cardholder data is entirely outsourced to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI DSS”) validated third-party service providers. HOMEE has confirmed that all third parties handling storage, processing, and/or transmission of banking and cardholder data are PCI DSS compliant.
Information We Collect Automatically.
Traffic Data. HOMEE or its third-party service providers may collect a variety of visitor data such as IP addresses, browser settings, internet service provider (ISP) information, referring/exit pages, operating systems, date/time stamps, and clickstream data (collectively “Visitor Data”). Our website may use Visitor Data to compile traffic data about the types of visitors who use our website at specific intervals (collectively “Traffic Data”).
We may use Traffic Data to analyze website traffic. We may also use Traffic Data to diagnose problems with our server, administer our website, or display content according to your preferences. Visitor Data and Traffic Data may also be disclosed to business partners, affiliates, or advertisers on an aggregated and anonymous basis.
Cookies. HOMEE may use the standard cookie feature of major browser applications and third-party providers, or employ internally developed cookies, clear GIFs, pixel tags, tracking codes, and other technologies that allow HOMEE to store a small piece of data on a visitor’s computer, or any other device a visitor uses to access our Products and Services, about his or her visit to our website or use of Products and Services. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” directory. If you reject cookies, you may still use our website, but your ability to use some areas of our site may be limited.

When Using Products and Services. We automatically collect certain data relating to the performance and configuration of our Products and Services and our Customers’ and Authorized Users’ consumption, use
of, and interaction with the Products and Services (collectively, “Usage Data“). While Usage Data usually does not involve personal information, it may include such data in the following instances:
Usage Data is used by HOMEE for (a) providing, supporting and operating our Products and Services, (b) network and information security and (c) to analyze, develop and improve our Products and Services.

How do we disclose the information we receive?
Except as disclosed here, we do not rent, sell, or disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties. We disclose customer information as follows:
Analytics & Advertising
Analytics. We may use third-party web analytics services on our website. These service providers use the sort of technology described in the “Information We Collect Automatically” section above to help us analyze how users use our website, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the website.
If you would like to learn more or opt out of receiving online display advertising tailored to your interests, please visit the Networking Advertising Initiative at www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp or the Digital Advertising Alliance at http://aboutads.info/choices. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads. If you delete your cookies, use a different browser, or buy a new computer, you will need to renew your online display advertising opt-out choice.
Do Not Track. We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track (DNT) signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working on DNT standards, implementations, and solutions.
You may choose not to provide HOMEE with Personally Identifiable Information or you may turn off cookies in your browser by changing its settings. If you make these decisions, you may continue to use the website and browse its pages. However, HOMEE cannot process orders without Personally Identifiable Information.
Authorized Users and Authorized Contact Access to Order Information. HOMEE will give you, or anyone listed as an Authorized User for your account, information about any services ordered. This may include information about the nature and status of the service rendered, information you provided to process your service order, payment information, and contact information. If you want someone to have access to your order, you must include them as an Authorized User or they may not obtain information.
Deleting Your Information. If you no longer desire our services, or if you want to remove your Personally Identifiable Information from our Site, you may terminate your account by contacting email@example.com.
Opting Out of Marketing. We send promotional emails and newsletters from time to time to users who have registered on the website and to those who have opted in to receive such emails. You can opt-out of promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions in any communication or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Generally, you may not opt-out of service-related or transactional communications, which are not promotional. If you do not wish to receive service-related communications, however, you may terminate your account by contacting email@example.com.
We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. HOMEE may maintain some or all of this data in its archives even after it has been removed from the website.
We strive to make certain that the cloud servers we use and the connections thereto incorporate the latest encryption and security devices. We have implemented physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Personal information is transmitted by secure servers (SSL). In the event that we mail you documents, documents are delivered to you via Federal Express or similar overnight delivery services, the United States Postal Service, or email. Unfortunately, no data transmission is guaranteed to be 100% secure and we therefore cannot guarantee the security of information you transmit to or from the website or through the use of our Products and Services, and you provide this information at your own risk. ACCORDINGLY, WE DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR THE THEFT, LOSS, OR INTERCEPTION OF, OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR DATA OR COMMUNICATIONS BY USING THE SITE, APPLICATIONS, AND OUR SERVICES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND ASSUME THESE RISKS.
IF YOU BELIEVE YOUR PRIVACY HAS BEEN BREACHED THROUGH USE OF OUR WEBSITE, APPLICATIONS, OR OTHER SERVICES PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY AT DATAPRIVACY@HOMEE.COM.
The Products and Services are not directed to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information (as that term is defined in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)) from children under 13. If we discover that an individual under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete the personal information to the extent required by COPPA.

“Sale” of Personal Information
California residents may opt out of the "sale" of their personal information. The CCPA broadly defines "sale" in a way that may include allowing third parties to receive certain information such as cookie identifiers, IP addresses and/or browsing behavior to add to a profile about your device, browser or you. Such profiles may enable delivery of interest-based advertising by such third parties within their platform or on other sites.
Depending on how you use the Products and Services, we may disclose the following categories of information for such interest-based advertising, which may be considered a “sale” as defined by the CCPA: identifiers (such as IP address, device identifiers, and cookies) and internet and device activity. To opt out of such "sales," please submit a request to email@example.com or submit this form.
"Sharing" of Personal Information
California residents may opt out of the "sharing" of their personal information. The CCPA defines "sharing" as the targeting of advertising to a consumer based on that consumer's personal information obtained from the consumer's activity across websites. We "share" information for these purposes to provide more relevant and tailored advertising to you regarding our Services. As part of this advertising, we may "share" identifiers (such as IP address, device identifiers, and cookies) and internet and device activity with advertising platforms and advertising networks. To opt out of such "sharing," please submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit this form.
Children Under 16
We do not knowingly "sell" or "share" the personal information of children under 16.
Sensitive Personal Information
The CCPA also allows you to limit the use or disclosure of your "sensitive personal information" (as defined in the CCPA) if your sensitive personal information is used for certain purposes.
