This information may be used, for example, to alert you to software compatibility issues, or it may be analyzed to improve our Web design and functionality. Web beacons are images embedded in a Web page or email for the purpose of measuring and analyzing site usage and activity. HomeSpot, or third party service providers acting on our behalf, may use Web beacons to help us analyze Site usage and improve the Service. We may use third party service providers to help us analyze certain online activities. For example, these service providers may help us measure the performance of our online campaigns or analyze visitor activity on HomeSpotHQ.com.

We do not share any personal information about our customers with these third party service providers, and these service providers do not collect such information on our behalf. Our third party service providers are required to comply fully with this Privacy and Security Policy.

4. Third parties offering other products or services will not be given your personal information without your permission
There are a number of separate products and services offered by third parties advertised by us on our Site and through the Service that may be complementary to your use of HomeSpotHQ.com. If you choose to use these separate products or services, disclose information to the providers, or grant them permission to collect information about you, then their use of your information is governed by their privacy policies. You should evaluate the practices of external services providers before deciding to use their services. HomeSpot is not responsible for their privacy practices. If you click on a link to a third party site, HomeSpot encourages you to check the privacy policy of that site.

Your data is yours. You can remove it anytime you want. When you request us to delete your account for the Service, your data will be permanently expunged from our primary production servers and further access to your account will not be possible. We will also promptly disconnect any connection we had established to your Account Information and delete all account credentials. However, portions of your data, consisting of aggregate data derived from your Account Information, may remain on our production servers indefinitely. Your data may also remain on a backup server or media. HomeSpot keeps these backups to ensure our continued ability to provide the Service to you in the event of malfunction or damage to our primary production servers. We also reserve the right to use any aggregated or anonymous data derived from or incorporating your personal information.

8. Email communications from us
We also allow users to subscribe to email newsletters and alerts, and from time to time may transmit emails promoting HomeSpot or third-party goods or services. HomeSpot subscribers have the ability to opt-out of receiving our promotional emails and to terminate their newsletter subscriptions by following the instructions in the emails. Opting out in this manner will not end transmission of service-related emails, such as email alerts.

9. Your data is secure
We use a combination of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures, among others, to maintain the security of your online session and to protect HomeSpot accounts and systems from unauthorized access. When you register for the Service, HomeSpot requires a password from you for your privacy and security. HomeSpot uses industry-standard 128 bit secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect data transmissions between your browser and our servers. Our servers are in a secure facility. Access requires multiple levels of authentication, including biometrics (hand print scan) procedures. Security personnel monitor the system 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Our databases are protected from general employee access both physically and logically. We encrypt your Service password so that your password cannot be recovered, even by us. All backup drives and tapes also are encrypted.
