Homebot, Inc. (“Homebot” or “we” or “us”) is committed to privacy and will only use the personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that you provide in accordance with the terms outlined below.

This Privacy Policy covers any Personal Information we obtain when you visit us, use our services, or access the features on the websites that Homebot owns or controls (today or in the future), including https://homebot.ai (collectively, the “Sites”). You can access the Sites in many ways, including from a computer or mobile phone, and this Privacy Policy will apply regardless of the means of access. This Privacy Policy also governs the use of Personal Information we obtain from you from any third party site or application where we post content or invite your feedback or participation. Homebot cannot control the privacy policies or practices of sites or of companies that we do not own or control, and cannot control the actions of people we do not employ or manage.

Cookies

We also use cookies to collect information about you. A “cookie” is a small data file stored on your web browser or on your mobile device that allows us to recognize your computer or mobile device when you visit the Sites by associating identification numbers with other user information you have provided us. Some cookies will remain on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device for the duration of your browser or user session, while others will remain until deleted by you. You may also be able to configure your computer or mobile device to limit the collection of these “cookies,” but that limitation may also limit our ability to provide all the services or functionality of the Sites. For more information about cookies including how to set your internet browser to reject cookies please go to www.allaboutcookies.org.  

Pixel Tags

We may use pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs) on our Sites. They can help us analyze what our customers like to do on our Sites and the effectiveness of our features and advertising. They can also help us customize your browsing experience. We may use information collected through pixel tags or tracked links in combination with your personal information. We may also combine personal information you provide to us with other personal information (such as purchase history and demographic information). If we work with other companies to help us track, collect and analyze this information, they will be prohibited from using this information for any other purpose.

Google Analytics

The Sites use Google Analytics (and in the future may use other similar sites or services), a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to better assist us in understanding how the Sites are used. Google Analytics will place cookies on your computer that will generate information that we select about your use of the Sites, including your computer’s IP address. That information will be transmitted to and stored by Google. The information will be used for the purpose of evaluating consumer use of the Sites, compiling reports on Sites’ activity for our use, and providing other services relating to Site activity and usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. Please note that by doing so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Sites. The use of cookies by Google Analytics is covered by Google’s privacy policy.

  4.   Information Security

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your Personal Information and data stored on our Sites. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect and store. Additionally, our services are designed to comply with the laws applicable to the highly regulated financial services industry.  This includes utilizing practices and measures that are designed to comply with the requirements for safeguarding, using and protection personal information as set out in laws such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) of 1999 and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA).  However, we cannot and do not guarantee that these measures will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your information because despite our efforts, no internet and/or other electronic transmissions can be completely secure.

We recommend that you change your password periodically. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account username and password. If you believe that your account username and/or password have been stolen or been made known to others, it is your responsibility to immediately contact us at customersuccess@homebot.ai and change your password.

  6.   Correcting Your Information

We provide you the opportunity to update or correct the contact information that you have provided to us.

We recommend that you do not use email communications to send us sensitive personal information. If you need to change that personal information, we recommend that you call us directly.

  7.   Third Party and Social Media Sites

In general, the third-party providers that we use will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

Once you leave our Sites or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our Sites’ terms.

Social Media Sites

We work with third parties, including social network sites like Facebook, and with application developers who specialize in social commerce so we can connect to your social networks. All of these companies operate Social Media Sites. We provide access to our Sites by third parties and business partners so we can generate interest in our products and services among members of your social networks and to allow you to share product and service interests with friends in your network.

The use of any features made available to you on our Sites by a third party may result in information being collected or shared about you by us or by the third party. Information collected or shared through any such third party features is considered public information by us because the Social Media Sites made it publicly available. If you do not want us to be able to access information about you from Social Media Sites, you must instruct Social Media Sites not to share the information. We are not responsible for how these third parties may use information collected from or about you so be sure to review the privacy policies and privacy settings on your social networking sites to make sure you understand the information they are sharing. If you do not want a Social Media Site to share information about you, you must contact that site and determine whether it gives you the opportunity to opt out of sharing such information. However, we do identify any areas on our Sites where third parties share information about you.

We use features on Social Media Sites that allow you to express opinions about our services. Those Social Media Sites may collect or register your views about our services and make those views available to us and on public portions of the Social Media Sites. If you do not wish any of this to happen, you should not express your views about our services on Social Media Sites and you should review your privacy settings on such Social Media Sites. We are not obligated to display your name or other identifying information, account name, profile photo or other information or content on our Sites even if you express an opinion about our services or have consented to our use of such information or content. We reserve the right to remove the information of any person for any reason. We may also remove from our Sites, in our sole discretion, any product offering or any photo or product description relating thereto. If you would like us to delete the data we have collected about you that we have received through any social media provider or Social Media Site, please contact us. However, if your information is deleted you may not have access to certain promotions, services information or opportunities as a result.

Links

The Sites may contain third-party embedded content or otherwise list or link to third party products, services or websites. We do not have any control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of suppliers to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items, or the truth or accuracy of any information on third party websites. For these reasons, Homebot and its affiliates cannot ensure that a buyer or supplier will actually complete a transaction or that information on a third party’s website is accurate or reliable. Homebot will not be a party to any transactions between you and such third parties and any correspondence concerning such transactions should be conducted between you and the third party.

  8.   Children’s Information

The Sites are only intended for individuals over the age of 18 who meet the criteria described in our Terms and Conditions, accessible here:  homebot.ai/terms-of-service.

If you believe a child has provided us with information, contact us at legal@homebot.ai or customersuccess@homebot.ai.

  9.   International Users

  10.   California Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, you have the right to request information from us regarding the manner in which we share certain categories of Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, in addition to the rights set forth above. Under California law, you have the right to send us a request at the designated address listed below to receive the following information:
