I. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
a) Information You Give Us
We collect information that you voluntarily share with us through the WeFix Platform.
If you are using the WeFix Platform to request professional services, you may give us:
Contact information, such as your name, physical address, telephone number, and email address
Information about your home, such as the number of bedrooms, the types of appliances and zip code or postal code where your home is located
Billing information, such as credit or debit card number, expiration date & security code and/or information regarding your Google Wallet or other digital payment accounts.
If you participate on the WeFix Platform as a service professional, you may give us:
Contact information, such as your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number
Log-in information, including your WeFix Platform username and password
Application information, if requesting consideration to participate as a service professional through the WeFix Platform, such as your experience, skills, eligibility to work, and availability.
If you apply on the WeFix Platform for employment with WeFix, you may give us:
Contact information, including your name, email address, telephone number, and mailing address
Resume and LinkedIn profile.
More about payment card information:
Although users can submit credit card or other payment card information to pay for a service through the WeFix Platform, WeFix does not receive this information itself. Payment card information is transmitted directly to a third-party payment card processor, Stripe, through an Internet connection secured by industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. Stripe then communicates to Handy whether your payment has cleared, but does not provide payment card information to WeFix.
You may, at your choice, complete surveys on the WeFix Platform about, for example, your level of satisfaction with the WeFix Platform, your engagement with the WeFix Platform, and your awareness of WeFix Platform features. In some cases, we may link the information you provide in the survey with Personal Information in your WeFix account, such as your name or email address. When linked to Personal Information, your survey information becomes Personal Information too.
b) Information We Collect Through Technology
We collect information through technology to enhance our ability to serve you. When you access and use the WeFix Platform, WeFix and, in some cases, our third-party service providers collect information about how you interact with the WeFix Platform. We describe below a few of the methods we use to collect information through technology.
When you visit the WeFix Platform, we collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is often associated with the portal you used to enter the Internet, like your Internet service provider (ISP), company, association, or university. While an IP address may reveal your ISP or geographic area, we cannot determine your identity solely based upon your IP address. However, we may link the last IP address you used to access the WeFix Platform to Personal Information you provide us.
We may also collect a unique identifier for your computer, mobile device, or other device used to access the WeFix Platform ("Device Identifier"). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to the device you used to access the WeFix Platform. We may link the Device Identifier to other information about your visit, such as what pages you viewed, and to Personal Information you provide us, such as your name.
We may include small graphic images or other web programming code, called web beacons (also known as "pixel tags", "web bugs" or "clear GIFs"), in our web and mobile pages and messages. The web beacons are minute graphics with a unique identifier. They are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored in a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Web beacons help us better manage content on the WeFix Platform by informing us what content is effective, monitoring how users navigate the WeFix Platform, counting users of the WeFix Platform, and counting how many e-mails sent by us were actually opened.
c) Information Collected by Mobile Applications
When you use the App, the App may automatically collect and store some or all of the following information from your mobile device ("Mobile Device Information"), including, but not limited to:
The type of Internet browsers you use with the App.
Your preferred country site.
Your mobile operating system.
Your phone number or other identifiers assigned to your mobile device, including: The IP address of your mobile device, The manufacturer and model of your mobile device
We may also collect information about how you use the App, such as the amount of time you spend using the App, how many times you use a specific feature of the App over a given time period, how often you use the App, and actions you take in the App. In addition, we may gather information about the website from which you downloaded the App to help us determine what App download site is most effective (collectively "App Usage Information").
We may link your Mobile Device Information and App Usage Information to Personal Information you have provided us, in which case we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
d) Information You Provide About A Third Party
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about the WeFix Platform, we may collect your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the WeFix Platform. We store this information only to send this one-time email and to track the success of our referral program. We do not use this information for any other marketing purpose unless we obtain consent from that person or we explicitly say otherwise. Please be aware that when you refer a friend, your e-mail address may be included in the message sent to your friend.
e) Information Third Parties Provide About You
We may supplement the information we collect about you through the Handy Platform with records received from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you information that we believe may be of interest to you. For example, websites on which we have placed advertisements, such as Google, may tell us which ads about WeFix you clicked. This is often called "conversion tracking."
If you login to the WeFix Platform through a social networking site, such as Facebook, we may collect your Facebook authentication token and account identification number and use that information to provide you with access to your account on the WeFix Platform.
f) Information You Provide to a Third Party
The WeFix Platform includes links from the WeFix Platform to sites or applications operated by third parties ("Third-Party Sites") and plug-ins (such as Twitter buttons) from Third-Party Sites.
The Third Party Site may ask the service professional for identifying information to conduct the background check.

IV. HOW WE PROTECT THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The security and confidentiality of your Personal Information is important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access or disclosure and improper use.
For example, when users book services, the information they input is encrypted through SSL encryption. We do not store credit card information on our servers, and we use SSL encryption to protect your credit card information when it is transferred to our third-party payment processor. In addition, access to your Personal Information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the Personal Information to perform a specific job, for example, sales representatives, managers, and customer service staff, are granted access to Personal Information. All employees with access to Personal Information are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. After a new policy is added, these employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to enhance protection for our users' Personal Information.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your account password and to your computer. Be sure to log out of your account or to close your browser after you have completed your visit to our Site.
Please note that despite our reasonable efforts, no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information.
