Last Updated: October, 2018

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) is intended to describe the data collection practices of doitonlineDIY (“we”, “our” or “us”) in relation to the website available at: www.doitonlineDIY.com (together with its subdomains, features, and services available thereon, the “Site”), and in relation to your use or interaction with any content, offer, feature, element or service we provide you with through the Site (the “Services”). The information is presented with the chosen headings and subheadings in an order designed for ease of reading only (and are not to be used for interpretive purposes), and we hope they help you navigate this Privacy Policy.

We retain the right, at our sole and absolute discretion, to alter this Privacy Policy at any time. In such an event, we will post the altered Privacy Policy on the Site, and the “Last Updated” stated at the shall reflect the date on which the altered version takes effect. Any visit to or use you make of the Site after such date, serves as your consent and acknowledgement of the altered Privacy Policy. In the event that we make meaningful changes, we will take care to notify you more prominently, e.g., posting a notification on the Site seven (7) days before the modifications take effect. In which case, the modifications will be effective seven (7) days after such notification was published.

The Privacy Policy includes:

 

 

 

 

  1. Terms of Use. This privacy policy constitutes an integral part of the Site’s Terms of Use (the “Terms”), a copy of which can be accessed at: Terms of Use. Capitalized terms are defined either in this Privacy Policy or in the Terms of Use.
  2. Information we collect. When you access the Site, or use the Services, we reserve the right to collect information about your visit and the way you use the Site and the Services, in any of the following ways:
    1. Information Provided by You. Some of the Services will necessitate submitting certain Personal Information in order that they may operate properly. Your specific and active consent for providing us with Personal Information will be required for some of the features and/or services (e.g. promotional material and forms, newsletters in certain Sites occasionally), whereas other information will be collected upon your agreement to this Privacy Policy, as described below.
      For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” refers to information used to personally identify an individual, such as a first and last name, phone number, a home or other physical address, an email address or other contact information, that could be used either alone or in combination with other information. In some jurisdictions the IP address that is allocated to your device by your Internet service provider may also constitute Personal Information. In such cases, this information will be handled as personal in terms of all handling and safeguarding aspects. This information, however, will not be used for user identification or personalization purposes.

      1. Third Party Forms and Services. The Site classifies, compares and evaluates various third-party businesses, commercial entities, and brands (collectively, “Partners”) and their corresponding products and/or services (collectively, “Products”). We may, every once in a while, suggest to you services, offers and Products of our Partners. In the event that you decide to make use of these Products, you will be able to do so by filling out an online form, which will be used, along with your information to facilitate your connection and/or interaction with the relevant Partner (“Lead”). In addition, if you wish to receive further information about a Product or a Partner, or if you wish to complete a transaction with a partner, and do so by clicking on the relevant Partner tab or icon, you will likely be directed to an online form that the partner operates and owns (the “Landing Page”); likewise, you may also be directed to the same Landing Page using other online searches and websites. In both incidents, however, you may be prompted to enter certain information on the Landing Page, including Personal Information such as your name, phone number, and email address (such information will be collectively referred to as “Landing Page Info”). Take into consideration that the Landing Page Info that you enter is collected directly by the Partner who owns the Landing Page, and that the information is kept and used in accordance to a different privacy policy and data collection practices. We highly recommend referring to such privacy policies to fully understand how your Personal Information is collected and used.
      2. Contact Us. You could be required to provide us with certain Personal information, such as your name and email address, if you send us a ‘Contact Us’ (or similar) request, be it by sending an email to an email address displayed on our Site, by submitting an online form that we make available, by using a feedback form or reporting a feature, or by other means. Such information submitted by you, including the content of your request to us, shall be used for processing and addressing your request. It may also be used for our legitimate business purposes described further in sections 4 and 5 of this Privacy Policy.
      3. Blogs, Newsletters, Surveys and Promotions. The Site may include articles, reviews, and a blog forum presenting information about our services, Partners, Products, and the relevant market vertical. You may also be offered the opportunity to subscribe to newsletters and take part in surveys and other promotional activities (some of which may be administered by us, whereas others may be administered by third-party services with which we engage). In each of the aforementioned cases, your engagement (such as taking part in a survey, responding on a blog forum, or subscribing to a newsletter) may necessitate providing certain Personal Information such as your name and email address. In which case, the information you submitted will also be handed directly to such third party and will be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy as well as such third party’s own privacy policy, and only for the specific purpose for which you provided your information.
    2. Information We Collect from You. We gather information about how you use the Services and about your engagement with the Site or the Services in the following ways:
      1. Device Information. We collect device information such as, operating system type, language and version, device type and version, and information that can be derived from a user agent, such as screen resolution, or browser type and version, for the purpose of delivering and compatibility, as well as for language, geographic location and time zone.
      2. Interaction and Usage. We collect information about your interaction and use of the Services, such as internal URLs of the Site which you have accessed and your actions in reference to the Services (such as view or click), URLs from which you were directed to our Site and to which the Site redirects you, timing for clicks, date/time stamp of your Site use and page-views. This information is collected in order to operate the Site and improving it over time, provide you with the Services, as well as the ability to synchronize with our Partners and affiliates.
      3. Log Files. We gather information by deploying website tracking technologies, such as pixel tags, within the Site, as well as through server log files. The purpose of this information collection is to track user’s engagement within the Site and particular Services, and analyze trends. The information we collect may include the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses that were allocated to your device by your Internet Service Provider. The information is collected for limited time and for particular purposes only. The first being better understanding of your geographic location (country, region and language), thus providing you with the Services in your own language, relevant to your country of origin. Second, we analyze IP addresses using automated tools and detect those that are fraudulent (“Anti-Fraud Purposes”).
      4. Cookies and Other Technologies. We or third-party service providers may employ “cookies” and other anonymous web tracking technologies (e.g. “web beacons” and “pixel tags”). A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the website again, the cookie allows that website to recognize your browser. Cookies are used for storing online preferences of users and other information about your engagement with the Site. You may adjust your browser settings to either refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent to your browser. Take into consideration, however, that some services may not function properly without cookies and some of the features included in the Site may become unavailable to you. A pixel tag is a technology commonly used in combination with cookies. It is used when emails are opened or accessed (when applicable), or for the purpose of tracking activity on websites.

        Please turn to our Cookie Policy for further information concerning the type of cookies used and for the way we use them and other tracking technologies on our site.
    3. Information Received from Third Parties.  Similar to other Internet based services, our Site and the Services it includes are run and supplied through the collaboration and synchronization with third parties, including, but not limited to, Partners, and affiliates. We may receive information from third parties for the purpose of allowing and facilitating such synchronization, for example, a system generated internal user identifier (not a unique identifier) or generating a summary of actions you perform on the Site (click, view, form submission, purchase or a phone call). The Site enables you to consume the Service on a click-by-call basis. Should you choose to do so, a third-party vendor/s will facilitate both the transmission of the call and the tracking and feedback for success. This third party may then provide us with the phone number from which you called (attaching to it no other information about you). The information is kept for a limited time and in order to resolve referrals and successful calls with our partners. We make no other use other than for this sole purpose, unless you expressly consent to it.
  3. Choice, Consent and Alterations. You are using this Site out of your free choice and will and you are not legally bound to supply us with your Personal Information (you hereby acknowledge that you do so freely). By engaging or interacting with services and by any other use of the Site, you agree to this Privacy Policy and to our data collection practices detailed herein.

    To offer you the Site and Services in general, and in order to constantly improve them.

    We do not share your Personal Information with Third Parties, with the exception of the following situations:

    1. Security Platforms and Data Storage (“Data Platforms”). We store and reserve Your Information on third party storage and cloud services. The meaning of this is that we may send or share your information with third party organizations which are located anywhere in the world, including the US, in order to store such information on our behalf, or for any other processing need.

These Data Platforms could be situated anywhere in the world.

Their actual activities and practices are eventually governed by their own privacy policies, rather than ours.
    2. Social Media Platforms. Non-identified information may be shared with social media platforms (such as Linkedin, Facebook etc.) for operation and marketing purposes. This information could be combined with your Personal Information already in possession of such social media platforms, which collect Your Information independently from us and to whom you gave your independent and separate consent. All such actions, including any Personal Information that may originate in them, are governed by the specific social media’s own privacy policy and is in no way controlled or known to us.
    3. Other Third Parties. Your information may be sent or shared with various third parties that assist us with our business operations (e.g. email or phone administration providers and customer service operators). They help us operate and improve our Site and Services and help us better understand how our users use them. These third parties are likely to have their own privacy policies to which they adhere, and our requirement is to have them made available whenever their services are provided. We advise you to access these such privacy policies when these services are extended to you directly. You should also take into consideration that these third parties could be based (and their servers located) anywhere in the world.
    4. Enforcement.

In such a case, we may share or send your Online Form information with/to the Partner about whose Product or about whom you wanted to receive further information, or with which you have expressed an interest in completing a transaction (the “Corresponding Partner” and “Corresponding Product” respectively). We will do so for the purpose of having such Corresponding Partner contact you back directly with the information you have requested. Either way, you acknowledge that: (i) Partners may contact you directly using the Online Form information that you entered; (i) we have no control over the way a Partner chooses to contact you, or the topic under discussion of such contact; (iii) each Partner is obliged to supply its own privacy policy and therefore, is not necessarily bound by this Privacy Policy; and (iv) Partners could be based (and their servers located) anywhere in the world.

In such case, the acquiring entity will be required to post its data protection practices and maintain all of your rights based on the jurisdiction of your residency.
      We may decide to share or send some non-Personal Information with/to certain types of third parties (as follows) and in the event of the following circumstances:
