A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag, or clear GIF, is used to transmit information back to a web server. We also may use third-party website analytics tools (including but not limited to Google Analytics and Facebook Insights), that collect information about visitor traffic on the Sites.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. We follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data stored on Our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions, including, where appropriate, password protection, encryption, SSL, firewalls, and internal restrictions on who may access data to protect our Site and the information We collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. The Site encrypts your credit card number, debit card number, or other payment option and other personal information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology to provide for the secure transmission of the information from your personal computer to Our servers.
Neither this website nor its server store your credit card number, debit card number, bank account numbers or any other private payment account number details. Our payment processor is PCI DSS compliant and uses strong encryption to secure your payment details.
In addition, only those employees and third parties who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are allowed such access. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your password private. Also, you should never share your log-in information with others. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
MODIFYING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You may modify any personal information that you have submitted by logging into your account and updating your profile information. Please note that copies of information that you have updated, modified or deleted may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Site for a period of time.
You may also delete your Contractortests account, just send an email to [email protected] with a subject titled “Delete My Account” and we will assist you in doing so. We will try to delete your account as soon as possible, but it may take up to ten (10) business days for our systems to completely delete this so you may still receive correspondence from us during that time.
