Types of Information We Collect. The following are the types of information about you that we collect:
Information you give to us. We receive and securely store the information you provide to us when you register for, or otherwise use, the Site such as your name, email address, phone number, address, information and any feedback, questions, or recommendations you provide. We may invite comments, questions, or feedback on certain public areas of the Site. If you provide information in public areas of the Site (if any), such information may be read, collected and used by us and other users of the Site. If you provide information directly to us in other ways, such as by sending us an email, we may retain that information and add it with the other information we have collected from you.
Types of information collected by technology. We may receive and store certain types of information from you each time you use the Site. For example, we may automatically log your browser type, language preference, precise geographic location, the date and time of your visit to the Site, any actions you take on the Site, the date and time of your visit to specific listings on the Site, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and the website you visited before our Site. In addition, we may receive and store information about your use of the Site. The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include:
Web Beacons. Web beacons are electronic images that may be used on our Site or in our emails. We use web beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.
Other. We may also use clear gifs or other data files or identifiers to collect information for statistical purposes and to improve and develop the Site or the services we offer. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are placed on a hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages.
Do Not Track. We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking). We do not respond to browser-based “do not track” signals. Some third party sites who push content to our Site may keep track of your browsing activities over time and across different websites when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you.
Use of Your Data. In general, information you submit to us is used either to respond to requests that you make, or to aid us in serving you better. Evaluator Group uses your information: for research and marketing purposes; to facilitate the creation of your account on our network; identify you as a user in our system; to provide improved administration of our Site; to improve the quality of your experience when you interact with our Site; to send you e-mail notifications; to respond to your inquiries; to send promotional communications; to send upgrades and special offers related to our services and for other marketing purposes of Evaluator Group or our third party companies; to make telephone calls to you, from time to time, as a part of secondary fraud protection; and to solicit your feedback. We may create anonymous or aggregated data records from your information by excluding information that makes the data personally identifiable to you (such as your name) or by compiling information about you with information from other users. We use this anonymous or aggregated data to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of our services and improve Site navigation. We reserve the right to use and disclose anonymous and aggregate data to third party companies for any purpose in our sole discretion. If you provide feedback on any of our services to us, we may use such feedback for any purpose, provided we will not associate such feedback with your information.

Regardless of any choices you make regarding your information (as described below), Evaluator Group may disclose information if it believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on Evaluator Group; or (b) protect or defend the rights or property of Evaluator Group, users of the Site, or any other party.
Disclosure to Third Parties. We may share your information with third party service providers that are contractually bound to safeguard your information. We may make such disclosure in order to provide you with services, or to conduct quality assurance testing. We may also share your information with any other party with your express consent.
