This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from http://www.theqbstore.com (the “Site”). 

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT 

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device.

We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.” 

We collect Device Information using the following technologies: 

– “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org. 
– “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

We refer to this information as “Order Information.” 

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information. 

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION? 

We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to: 
Communicate with you; 
Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and 
When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services. 
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

CALIFORNIA NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES

If you are a California resident (as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act), you may have certain rights. For more information, please see the Supplemental Privacy Notice for California Residents below.

NOTICE FOR NEVADA RESIDENTS

Under Nevada law, certain Nevada consumers may opt out of the sale of “personally identifiable information” for monetary consideration to a person for that person to license or sell such information to additional persons. “Personally identifiable information” includes first and last name, address, email address, phone number, Social Security Number, or an identifier that allows a specific person to be contacted either physically or online.

We do not engage in such activity; however, if you are a Nevada resident who has purchased or leased goods or services from us, you may submit a request to opt out of any potential future sales under Nevada law by support@theqbstore.com. Please note we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity and the authenticity of the request. Once verified, we will maintain your request in the event our practices change.

Supplemental Privacy Notice for California Residents

This Supplemental Privacy Notice supplements the information in our Privacy Policy above, and except as provided herein, applies solely to California residents (as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act). It applies to personal information we collect on or through the Platform and through other means (such as information collected offline, in person, and over the telephone).

Summary of Information We Collect

California law requires us to disclose information regarding the categories of personal information that we have collected about California consumers, the categories of sources from which we collect personal information, the business or commercial purposes (as each of those terms are defined by applicable law) for which we collect personal information, and the categories of parties with whom we share personal information.

As described further in our Privacy Policy above, in the preceding twelve months, we or our service providers may have collected the below categories of personal information for business or commercial purposes:

  • Identifiers (such as account information, name, email address, address, phone number, or social network account and profile data);
  • Commercial information (such as transaction data);
  • Financial data (such as payment information);
  • Internet or other network or device activity (such as IP address, unique device, advertising, and app identifiers, browsing history or other usage data);
  • Location information (general location, and, if you provide permission, precise GPS location);
  • Sensory information (such as audio recordings if you call our customer service);
  • Inferences about your project preferences and traits; and
  • Other information that identifies or can be reasonably associated with you (such as user generated content, e.g. reviews).

We collect the categories of personal information identified above from the following sources: (1) directly from you; (2) through your use of the Platform; (3) affiliates; and (4) third parties such as other users or vendors.

We or our service providers may collect the categories of information identified above for the following business or commercial purposes (as those terms are defined in applicable law):

  • Our or our service provider’s operational purposes;
  • Auditing consumer interactions on our site (e.g., measuring ad impressions);
  • Detecting, protecting against, and prosecuting security incidents, fraudulent or illegal activity and activity that violates any terms or policies;
  • Bug detection, error reporting, and activities to maintain the quality or safety of our services;
  • Short-term, transient use, such as customizing content that we or our service providers display on services;
  • Providing services (e.g., account servicing and maintenance, order processing and fulfillment, customer service, advertising and marketing, analytics, communication about our services, administering surveys, contests, and promotions, enabling you to find a Service Member to provide services to you, facilitating communications between users);
  • Improving our existing services and developing new services (e.g., by conducting research to develop new products or features, or to train our employees on issues that our users need to be resolved);
  • Other uses that advance our commercial or economic interests, such as third party advertising and communicating with you about relevant offers from third party partners;
  • Other uses about which we notify you.

We describe our information sharing practices in the Privacy Policy above. In the previous twelve months, we may have shared certain categories of personal information with third parties for business purposes. The personal information shared may include the following categories of personal information: (1) identifiers; (2) commercial information (such as the type of professional services you are seeking); (3) location information (e.g. to describe where you are seeking professional services); and (4) other information that can be associated with you (such as information related to a home improvement project).

Examples of these types of uses are identified below. We may also use the below categories of personal information for compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and we may combine the information we collect (“aggregate”) or remove pieces of information (“de-identify”) to limit or prevent identification of any particular user or device.

Rights

If you are a California resident (as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act), you may have certain rights. California law may permit you to request that we:

  • Provide you the categories of personal information we have collected or disclosed about you in the last twelve months; the categories of sources of such information; the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your personal information; and the categories of third parties with whom we shared personal information.
  • Provide access to and/or a copy of certain information we hold about you.
  • Delete certain information we have about you.

You may have the right to receive information about the financial incentives that we offer to you, if any. You also have the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising certain of your rights referenced herein. Certain information may be exempt from such requests under applicable law. In addition, we need certain types of information so that we can provide our services to you. If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use our services.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please submit a request at support@theqbstore.com or visit https://theqbstore.com/privacy-policy . You will be required to verify your identity before we are able to fulfill your request. You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. To do so, you must provide us with written authorization or a power of attorney, signed by you, for the agent to act on your behalf. You will still need to verify your identity directly with us.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) sets forth certain obligations for businesses that “sell” personal information. Theqbstore shares certain information of Customer with its marketing partners who do not qualify as “service providers” under the CCPA. To opt out of such sharing, you may click submit a request at support@theqbstore.com.

Metrics

California law may require us to compile the following metrics for the previous calendar year: the number of rights requests received, complied with, and denied, as well as the median number of days within which we responded to those requests. To the extent this obligation applies to Theqbstore, we will update this section after the CCPA has been in effect for a year.

California Shine the Light

If you are a California resident, you may ask for a list of third parties that have received your information for direct marketing purposes during the previous calendar year. If we have shared your information, this list will contain the types of information shared, and we will provide this list at no cost. To make such a request, contact us at support@theqbstore.com

California Do-Not-Track Disclosure

Theqbstore is committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on our Platform for third party purposes. That is why we have provided links to the NAI “Consumer Opt-Out” link, the DAA opt-out link, and a Google opt-out link (a) Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out Link  b) Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out Link c) Google Ads Settings page page). However, Theqbstore does not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do-Not-Track signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working on Do-Not-Track standards, implementations, and solutions.
