Information You Provide To Us
If you book a Service Order, and you choose to create a user account (“Account“) you will provide information that could reasonably be used to contact you or to identify you personally (such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, mobile phone number, home address, and links to your social identities/networks, Account username and password, and credit card number (collectively, “Personal Information“)). In addition, a full history of your purchased Service Order(s) and warranty information is securely stored and accessible for future reference online through your Account. In addition, you will provide additional information in connection with the approval of an Estimate for a Service Order, such information will be combined with and stored with your Account information.
The Site may also ask you to provide other information such as a description of your particular service need and photos of the problem area (e.g., your appliance problem, your HVAC issue, etc.). This information, including your Personal Information, may be shared with the Service Professional that will be providing you with the service(s) booked by the Site.
If you do not want your Personal Information collected and used, please do not create an Account or book a Service Order.
Information We Collect Automatically
Whenever you visit or interact with the Site, Flat Rate may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Site is accessed and used (“Usage Information“). Usage Information may include, in part, browser type, operating system, the page served, the time, the preceding and following page views, and your location. This statistical data provides us with information about the use of the Site, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. This information helps us keep our website fresh and interesting to our visitors and tailor content to a visitor’s interests. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if Flat Rate associates it with you as a specific and identifiable person, Flat Rate treats it as Personal Information.
Flat Rate may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (” Device Identifier“) for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, “Device“) you use to access the Site. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a web site or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier.
The technologies used on the Site to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, may include:
Pixel tags. A pixel tag is a transparent graphic image, sometimes called a web beacon, clear GIFs or tracking beacon, placed on a web page or in an email, which indicates that a page or email has been viewed. In addition, a pixel tag may tell your browser to get content from another server.
