REGISTRATION OF SUBCONTRACTORS, GENERAL CONTRACTORS, HOMEOWNERS AND SUPPLIERS
In order to submit a project request or enroll as a subcontractor; a user must register with our website, including creating a unique username and password. During the registration process, a user must provide contact information. We then use this information to contact the user about services on our website for which they have expressed an interest. By submitting a project request or enrolling as a subcontractor, a user expressly consents to being contacted by us by phone, email address or mail.
INFORMATION COLLECTED WHEN SUBMITTING PROJECTS
A project request includes the completion of a Submit Project Form and a Personal Profile Form. The Personal Profile Form is used to register the user to our website and is only required during the first instance of a project request. At the Submit Project Form we collect information that describes the scope of the project. We will also collect information relevant to the project such as contact name, address, bid due date, email address, and relevant information about the project.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM REGISTERED USERS
Users enroll in our service online and complete a Registration Form and agree to a Service Agreement. During the registration we may collect the following information: first and last name, company name, address, phone number, email address, membership affiliations, trades, billing address, username, password, credit card number, expiration date.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT:
The information collected is used to provide project information to qualified contractors within our network.
ENHANCEMENT OF MARKETING PROFILE
We may purchase third party marketing data and add it to our user database to target our advertising and provide pertinent offers to our users. We use this information to enhance the profile of individual users, and it is tied to users’ personally identifiable information. This information is not collected directly from users, but from third party sources.
We use users’ personally identifiable information to facilitate their use of our services. We create a personalized profile for each of our users by storing information we collect through a variety of mechanisms, which are explained below. This profile includes information on our users’ viewing preferences, activities on our website and interactions with EliteProNet. By analyzing our users’ activities on our website and use of our services, we can improve our services and our website.
A cookie is a very small file stored on the user’s hard drive that identifies the user to our website and assists us in data collection. We use both session cookies, which terminate when the user’s browser is closed, and persistent cookies, which must be manually deleted. Session cookies allow our system to remember information about the user only during that internet browser session. Persistent cookies allow our system to remember our users, meaning that they will not be required to log in every time that they visit our website. Users may reject these cookies, or manually delete them.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. We do, however, offer several features only available through the use of a cookie; users who have rejected our cookies may not be able to access these features.
We employ log files, which track certain information about your internet connection, including internet protocol addresses and internet service provider type. These log files are not linked to personally identifiable information of any user. By tracking this information, we are better able to analyze our users’ needs and improve our services and website.
INFORMATION ELITEPRONET SHARES
EliteProNet collects aggregate information on our users’ use of our website, which we may share with third parties. This information does not contain personally identifiable information. Rather, this information is an anonymous summary of activities on our website.
Though we strive to preserve users’ privacy, we cannot ensure that users’ private communications and other personal information will always remain confidential. For example, we may disclose personal information when required by law or when we believe parties are misusing or attempting to misuse our websites or services.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Users should also know that there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully access private communications and information. While we use several online and offline security tools, policies and procedures, we cannot guarantee security of the information we collect or that unauthorized access will not occur.
Users of our website are always notified when their information is being collected for marketing purposes by any outside parties, except our affiliates or service professionals.
Sale, Merger or Acquisition:
In the event that EliteProNet goes through a merger, acquisition or asset sale, users’ personal information will likely be part of the assets transferred.

Notifications for Registered Users
Registered users of our network may receive regular communications from us regarding bid requests we have received, or directly from our users.
