WIN Home Inspection (WIN) promises to protect the personal information given to us by visitors to our website and information included on our electronic mail lists.
Any information that you give to WIN will be held with the utmost care, and will not be used in any way to which you have not already consented. A more detailed explanation follows.
Collection and Use of Information
Much of the general information on the WIN web site can be accessed without needing to register your personal information - and we collect no information about you whatsoever when you are accessing these generic areas of our web site.
Voluntary e-mail newsletter lists: While you are browsing the WIN website, you will have the opportunity to sign up to receive various e-mail newsletters that provide home inspection- and home maintenance-related information that match audience criteria you establish (ex. general consumer, real estate professional).
Browser information collected on the website: As with many website operators, WIN analyzes our website logs to improve the value of our website to our visitors. We use an external service to provide real-time reporting to us of browser accesses to our site. This includes page views, unique views, unique visitors, repeat visitors, frequency of visits, and peak-volume traffic periods. In our use of this service, we do not gather, request, record, require, collect, or track any Internet users' personally identifiable information.
A "cookie" is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all of WIN web site offerings.
Disclosure of Information
Resale or disclosure of information to third parties: WIN does not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease personal information collected on our website or included on our e-mail lists to any third party.
We take precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Data Quality and Access
WIN provides you with the opportunity to know about the information that WIN holds about you, together with the ability to correct, amend or delete, as appropriate, any such information that is incomplete or inaccurate. Should you wish to exercise any of these options or should you have any questions or concerns about information that WIN has collected in relation to you, please feel free to contact us by sending a message to email@example.com. Specific details on how to correct, change or remove subscription information from our e-mail lists are provided on the WIN web site E-Newsletter sign-up page. In e-mail you receive from WIN, there will also be a link at the bottom of the e-mail to unsubscribe or change your areas of interest.
We comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulation establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children under 13. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13. It is possible that due to fraud or deception by others, we may unknowingly receive information pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, once we have verified the information, we will promptly delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information in relation to children under 13, please do so by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
