Construction Connectivity – Privacy Policy

Construction Connectivity, Inc. (“Construction Connectivity”, “we”, “us” or “our”) operates a proprietary web-based platform, which powers a number of web-based and app-based services on behalf of its business customers and their end users (for the benefit of their customers) (collectively, the “Construction Connectivity Service”) and the websites located at (each, a “Site”; and collectively, the “Sites”) and through its mobile applications and related services (such services, the proprietary web-based platform, the Sites, and the Construction Connectivity Service collectively, including any new features or versions of the Construction Connectivity Service and related services, the “Services”) subject to Construction Connectivity’s privacy practices outlined in this Privacy Policy.

Please read this Privacy Policy closely. By visiting the Sites and/or using the Services, when providing your personal information to Construction Connectivity, you agree that Construction Connectivity may collect, use, and disclose your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. We routinely update this Privacy Policy as our products and offerings change, so check back regularly for updates or changes.

We collect Personal Information and Aggregate Information. We use the term “Personal Information” to refer to information that can be used to identify an individual, and the term “Aggregate Information” to refer to information that does not allow for such identification (e.g., aggregated demographic information, areas visited on the Site, duration of page views, what browser was used to access the Site, and similar information). The collection, use and storage of personal information is described in this Privacy Policy. The collection of aggregate information is also described in this policy. Because aggregate information does not personally identify who it pertains to, such information may be used and/or shared by us for any purpose.

We may remove identifiers from Personal Information to make it anonymous. After Personal Information has been anonymized, we will treat and use such information as Aggregate Information.

The Services may contain advertisements and links to other websites. Construction Connectivity is not responsible for the content, privacy policies, and/or practices of any advertisers or linked websites. Before providing personal information to third parties, such parties’ privacy policies should be reviewed by you, as they will govern how information disclosed directly to such third party may be used.

The Services are intended for use by adults only. They are not directed to children (as defined by applicable federal or state law or regulation), and Construction Connectivity will not knowingly collect or use information from children, and we request that such individuals, or any third party acting on their behalf, not use or access the Services or provide any personal information through the Services. If at any time we learn that we have collected or received personal information from a child, we will promptly close the account and follow our process for retention of personal information.

We follow the same privacy policies and practices for our former customers as are described in this Privacy Policy.

OUR SERVICES

The Construction Connectivity Floorcloud™ solution is comprised of its proprietary hosted SaaS platform and managed services that provides both a web-based dashboard and a smartphone app. The Floorcloud™ solution uses its proprietary software algorithms to analyze real-time job site data from on-site environmental sensors against its curated materials specifications database, allowing the platform to provide real-time updates and alerts to a customer’s authorized users both onsite and offsite during the flooring installation process. Customers can monitor any number of job sites in real-time, receive customizable alerts and other notifications, and securely store valuable project information (e.g., photos, materials, etc.) specific to each job site or project.

If you are an end user of one of our business customers (an “End User”), Construction Connectivity processes any required personal information for registering you as that customer’s authorized user on behalf of our business customer. Our processing of End Users’ personal information is governed by our agreement with that business customer. You acknowledge and agree that a business customer may require you to share personal information as a condition to you using the Services. This Privacy Policy also describes in further detail how we process personal information on behalf of our business customers.

TYPES OF INFORMATION CONSTRUCTION CONNECTIVITY COLLECTS

When you or your End Users engage with our services, we may collect:

  • Profile information, such as name of employer, mobile phone number, email address, first name and last name, and your title.
  • Documents, Photographs, and/or Videos, including without limitation documents, photographs, and/or videos, or other notes or information, from your mobile or other device, or similar, which may be automatically or manually uploaded as part of the Services.
  • Metadata associated with the photographs that are uploaded (e.g., geotags).
  • Cookies, web beacons, tracking pixels and other technologies. Construction Connectivity may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or device until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our website or when using our services. We may also use cookies or other tracking technologies provided by third-party analytics companies, such as Google Analytics, to collect information such as how often users visit the website, what pages they visit and for how long, what other sites they used prior to coming to the website, and other engagement data (including how you interact with our emails). Construction Connectivity uses this information to evaluate and improve our services.
  • Information collected by our servers, such as the referring/exit pages, your browser type, domain name, date/time stamp for your visit and your Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer or device when you use the internet). Construction Connectivity uses this information to analyze trends, administer our services, monitor for fraudulent activities using fraud management tools, and better tailor the services to our customers’ needs.
  • Mobile service data, such as your general geographic location, how you use the application(s), and information about the type of device you use. This information is generally used to help deliver the most relevant information to you. In addition, in the event our application crashes your mobile device, Construction Connectivity will receive information about your mobile device model, software version and device carrier, to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our applications. This information is sent to Construction Connectivity as aggregated information. The aggregated information is not used to identify an individual.
  • Location information, if you have enabled location services on your phone and that information is associated with any photos that you share with Construction Connectivity, you agree to our collection and use of the associated location information. If you do not want Construction Connectivity to collect this information, you may adjust the location services settings on your device. In some cases, if you decline to provide information to Construction Connectivity, we will not be able to provide certain services, capabilities, or features to you.

We use personal information of End Users for:

HOW CONSTRUCTION CONNECTIVITY SHARES YOUR INFORMATION

We may share personal information:

  • At the direction of our business customers, if you are an End User of one of our business customers.
  • With service providers that perform services on our behalf or help us operate our services (such as customer support, hosting, analytics, email delivery, marketing, and database management services). These service providers may use your information only as directed or authorized by us and in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy and are prohibited from using or disclosing your information for any other purpose.
  • At your direction, we may share your photographs and some of your profile information with other End Users.
  • In the context of a business transfer, we may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our business or assets, including information, in connection with a business transaction (or potential business transaction) such as a corporate divestiture, merger, consolidation, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy or dissolution.
  • To comply with the law: we may be required to disclose your information to comply with applicable local, state, federal, or international laws or regulations, lawful requests, and legal process, such as to respond to subpoenas or requests from government authorities or court orders, or for the compliance, fraud prevention, and safety reasons described above.

SAFEGUARDS

We implement administrative, technical and physical measures in an effort to safeguard the information in our custody and control against theft, loss and unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your information.

End Users are responsible for establishing unique credentials to access their profiles. All users are responsible for any actions on their profiles that result from access to the accounts with users’ valid credentials, except where the user, or the business customer, notified Construction Connectivity at support@constructionconnectivity.com that the credentials have been compromised.

RETENTION

We retain personal information in accordance with all applicable laws and for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, to establish or defend legal claims, or for fraud prevention purposes. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA USERS

We are providing this supplemental privacy notice to customers and their End Users in California, pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). End Users should submit their requests to the relevant business customer and Construction Connectivity will cooperate with the business customer pursuant to the terms of our agreement.

We do not sell our End Users’ personal information in the traditional sense. As we explain in this Privacy Policy, we use cookies and other tracking technologies to analyze website and application traffic and use, and to facilitate advertising. To limit use of cookies and other tracking technologies, please review the instructions provided in the Online Tracking Opt Out Guide.

The CCPA grants California residents the following rights.

  • Information: You can request information about how we used and shared your personal information through the Construction Connectivity Services during the past 12 months.
  • Access: You can request a copy of the personal information that Construction Connectivity maintains about you.
  • Deletion: You can ask to delete the personal information that Construction Connectivity maintains about you.
  • Opt-out of sale of your personal information: We do not sell personal information. We offer instructions on how to limit online tracking in the Online Tracking Opt Out Guide.

Please note that the CCPA limits these rights by, for example, prohibiting businesses from providing certain sensitive information in response to an access request and limiting the circumstances in which they must comply with a deletion request.

You are entitled to exercise the rights described above free from discrimination.

We describe the sources through which we collect personal information and the types of personal information collected in the “Types of Information Construction Connectivity Collects” section above. We describe the purposes for which we use and share this information in the “How Construction Connectivity Uses Your Information” section above and the “How Construction Connectivity Shares Your Information” section above.

  • To verify your identity prior to responding to your requests, we may ask you to confirm information that we have on file about you or your interactions with us. Where we ask for additional personal information to verify your identity, we will only use it to verify your identity or your authority to make the request on behalf of an End User.
  • Authorized agents: California residents can empower an “authorized agent” to submit requests on their behalf.

ONLINE TRACKING OPT OUT GUIDE

Like many companies online, we may use services provided by Google, Facebook, Twitter and other companies that use tracking technology. These services rely on tracking technologies – such as cookies and web beacons – to collect directly from your device information about your browsing activities, your interactions with websites, and the device you are using to connect to the internet. There are a number of ways to opt out of having your online activity and device data collected through these services, which we have summarized below:

  • Blocking cookies in your browser: Most browsers let you remove or reject cookies, including cookies used for interest-based advertising. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser settings. Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings. For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, visit: www.allaboutcookies.org.
  • Blocking advertising ID use in your mobile settings: Your mobile device settings may provide functionality to limit use of the advertising ID associated with your mobile device for interest-based advertising purposes.
  • Using privacy plug-ins or browsers: You can block our websites from setting cookies used for interest-based ads by using a browser with privacy features, like Brave, or installing browser plugins like Privacy Badger, Ghostery, or uBlock Origin, and configuring them to block third party cookies/trackers. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
  • Platform opt-outs: The following advertisers offer opt-out features that let you opt-out of use of your information for interest-based advertising:

    • Digital Advertising Alliance for Mobile Apps: www.youradchoices.com/appchoices
    • Network Advertising Initiative: optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1

Note that because these opt-out mechanisms are specific to the device or browser on which they are exercised, so you will need to opt out on every browser and device that you use.
