2. TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT.
In order to better provide you with a better user experience on our Site, we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Aggregate Information. (a) Personally Identifiable Information. PII is information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this Site, including registering for an account, viewing project statuses, submitting bid and qualification forms, sending us feedback, or otherwise entering information on our Site, we may ask that you provide certain information about yourself. PII may include, but is not limited to, your first and last name, email address, mailing address, phone number, company name, or other demographic information. (b) Aggregate Information. This is information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Site and what other sites may have directed you to us. This information, which is collected in a variety of ways, is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator that points to the site you just came from, which URL you go to after visiting our Site, what browser you are using, the length of time you have browsed our Site, which pages you are viewing, and your Internet Protocol address.
3. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION.
We do not collect any PII about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. However, you may be required to provide certain PII to us when you elect to use certain features and services of the Site. These may include registering for an account on our Site, sending us an email message, submitting a form, or transmitting other information. When processing certain information, we encrypt the information using Secure Socket Layer encryption technology, in order to prevent your PII from being stolen or intercepted. Certain PII is collected through third parties, such as Red Team Software for bid submissions and project plan viewing, and Ascentis Human Capital Management Software for human resources submissions on our Careers page. These transactions are processed through the individual providers and are not stored or processed on our servers. We are not responsible for the way those entities collect and use such information. Please refer to their privacy policies. We will primarily use your PII to provide service offerings to you. We will also use certain forms of PII to enhance the operation of our Site, improve our internal marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze Site use, improve our service offerings, and customize our Site’s content, layout, and services. We may use PII to deliver information to you, contact you regarding administrative notices or to respond to correspondence from you, to resolve disputes, to troubleshoot problems, to comply with our legal obligations, or to enforce our agreements with you, including this Policy. We may also collect certain Aggregate Information. For instance, we may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers or software, administer our Site, and/or to gather demographic information.
5. RELEASE OF INFORMATION.
We will not sell, trade, or rent your PII to others except as provided herein or with your advance notice. We may share your PII within our organization or as you direct. Circumstances may arise where for business reasons, we decide to sell, buy, merge, or otherwise reorganize our business in the United States or some other country. Such a transaction may involve disclosure of PII to prospective or actual purchasers, and/or receiving such information from sellers. It is our practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions. We employ or engage other companies and individuals to perform business functions on our behalf. These persons are provided with the PII required to perform their functions, but are prohibited by contract from using the PII for other purposes. These persons engage in a variety of functions, such as providing vendor management and/or human resources services, removing repetitive information from customer and/or vendor lists, and etcetera. LandSouth also reserves the right to disclose to third parties Aggregate Information for marketing analysis about our users’ traffic patterns, site usage information, and related site information, but this will not include any PII. In addition, we may be, occasionally, required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide PII to the appropriate governmental authorities. In such cases, we will disclose PII upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our Site for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe unlawful.
6. UPDATING AND CORRECTING INFORMATION.
You may change any of your PII that you have provided to us in your account online at any time. We encourage you to promptly update your PII if it changes. You may also access and correct your PII and privacy preferences by emailing or writing us at: LandSouth Construction, LLC 4233 Pablo Professional Court, Suite 101 Jacksonville, Florida 32224 Attn: Website Support Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include your name, address, and email address when you contact us. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, some information, such as past transactions, logs of technical support calls, or other information may not be deleted. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups.
7. LOST OR STOLEN INFORMATION.
If any of your PII are lost or stolen, you should promptly notify us to enable us to cancel the lost or stolen information and to update our records with changed information.
8. SECURITY OF YOUR PII.
At our Site you can be assured that your PII is secure, consistent with current industry standards. We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of your PII. We work hard to ensure that the data we collect is reliable, accurate, complete and current. We encrypt all PII in order to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to us. We also keep collected information only for as long as reasonably necessary and use it only for the purposes for which it was collected or to comply with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements. We limit access to PII only to specific employees, contractors and agents who have a reasonable need to come into contact with the information. For example, we may provide members of our technical support team with limited access to your account in order to allow them to troubleshoot problems you may be having with the Site. Additionally, we also employ a number of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect PII. Our secure servers and our data centers are protected by industry-standard encryption, and our servers reside behind firewalls and employ high-level password protection. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your PII, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed. In the event of a data breach in which your PII is affected, we will strive to provide you with notice of such breach by electronic mail to the e-mail address on file with us within fourteen (14) days of the date that we have reason to believe that a breach has occurred, but no later than thirty (30) days from such date.
9. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY.
This Site is not intended for the use of children under the age of majority within the jurisdiction in which they reside without the supervision and involvement of a parent or guardian. In conformity with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), we do not seek or knowingly collect, use, or disclose PII about children under 13 years of age. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected PII from a child under the age of 13, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database. If you are the parent or guardian of a minor child who has provided us with PII, you may contact us using the information provided in Section 6 of this Policy.
10. THIRD-PARTY LINKS.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services, or otherwise link to third-party websites from our Site. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. Therefore, we have no responsibility for or liability for the content or activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our Site and welcome any feedback.
11. CAN-SPAM ACT.
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violation. We collect your email address in order to send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions, process and send information and updates regarding bids and projects, send you additional information, including a newsletter if you sign up to receive it. In accordance with the CAN-SPAM Act, we agree not to use false or misleading subjects or email addresses, to identify any advertising messages as such, include our physical business address in any email correspondence, monitor third-party email marketing services, if one is used, and honor any opt-out requests as quickly as practical. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can reach us using the information provided in Section 6 of this Policy.
