Information We Collect

We collect both Personal Information and non-personally identifiable information through the Site to help us to learn more about how our visitors use the Site, to measure areas of interest, and to provide our users with important information on our network of independently owned and operated Senior Helpers® franchise businesses (the "Network") and our and/or our Network's services. Collection of information allows us to build features and functionality that will enhance your experience. You are not obligated to provide us with Personal Information to use the Site. However, we do require that you register and provide certain Personal Information to send us inquiries, to receive information about our Network and how to become an independently owned and individually operated franchise, and to receive newsletters and other special offers. We collect non-personally identifiable information using General Tracking Information and Click Path Tracking (cookie technology) described below.

Collection of Non-Personally Identifiable Information

  1. General Tracking Information

We keep track of the pages visited by each user. Our web server automatically collects some information about you when you request pages from our server, including your IP address using first-party cookies or identifiers, and third-party cookies or identifiers. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you. We aggregate this data with data on the pages visited by other users to track overall visitor traffic patterns. We use this information to improve our Site by making it more responsive to the needs and preferences of our users. This information does not identify you personally.

  1. Click Path Tracking

Technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags and scripts are used by Senior Helpers and our affiliates, our marketing, testing and quality assurance partners, and/or our analytics, information technology and web monitoring service providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the Site, tracking users' movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. Mobile applications may also use cookies. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to help improve the services we and/or our Network offer you and to help improve marketing, analytics, or Site functionality.

We use local storage to store content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner may provide certain features on our Site or display advertising based upon your web browsing activity use local storage to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing local storage / HTML5 LS.

At any given time, we may partner with one or more third party advertisers, search providers and/or ad networks to either display advertising on our Site or to manage our advertising on other sites. Each such third-party advertiser, search provider and ad network partner may use cookies and web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on the Site and other websites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. If you wish to not have this information used to serve you targeted ads, you may opt-out by contacting us at 901 Dulaney Valley Road, Suite 700, info@seniorhelpers.com , or 1. 844-843-4357. Please note that this does not opt you out of being served generic, non-targeted advertising. You will continue to receive generic, non-targeted ads.

  1. Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

We may share non-personally identifiable information in the aggregated form with third parties who are providing research services that, in turn, will help to enhance the experiences of the Network's clients.

Collection of Personal Information

If you choose to register on our Site, you will be asked to provide Personal Information which may include your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number. Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we do not actively share Personal Information gathered from our web servers.

If you register, your registration information may be used by Senior Helpers, our independently owned and operated Franchisees, our affiliates and our third-party service providers or other partners for internal research purposes and may be compiled as part of our internal database system. In addition, both we and our independently owned and operated Franchisees, affiliates, third-party service providers and other business partners may send correspondence to or contact you using the e-mail, street address and/or phone number you provide to us when registering on our Site or which you provide to us through the Site. These communications may include, but are not limited to, newsletters, promotional offers, information on new features and services that we and/or our Network provide(s), franchise opportunities, employment opportunities with us at our corporate office or an independently owned and operated franchise business, Site updates, responses to your e-mails, inquiries, comments and opinions, surveys, and technical support.

We and/or our Network will retain and use your information for as long as your account is active, as needed for the Network to provide you services, or as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce agreements.

  1. Sharing of Personal Information

We will share your Personal Information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy. We currently do not provide or sell any Personal Information to marketing research or bulk advertising sales companies or to any other third parties. We will share your Personal Information with our independently owned and operated Franchisees and affiliates who are bound to protect such information from disclosure or misuse. We may share your Personal Information with third-party businesses who offer services that we determine may be helpful to people who are or may be interested in the Network's services or resources. As described above, you may limit this sharing by following the instructions in the "Opt-Out" Section below. We may also disclose Personal Information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this Personal Information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may have breached our Terms of Use or who may be causing (whether intentionally or unintentionally) injury to or interference with our rights or property, other website users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We reserve the right to disclose your Personal Information to law-enforcement personnel and agencies when requested to do so, as required by law such as to comply with a subpoena, or if Senior Helpers is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets.

We may also provide your Personal Information to or allow access to your Personal Information by companies that provide services to help us or the Network with our/its business activities, such as offering customer service, assessing quality and customer satisfaction, enabling website features, or assisting with hiring of employees. These companies are authorized to use your Personal Information only as necessary to provide these services.

  1. Click-to-Chat Conversations

Any personal information that you share during any click-to-chat conversation will be considered Personal Information that may be used and retained in accordance with this Privacy Policy. As a click-to-chat conversation may not be a secure form of communication, please do not provide any social security numbers, credit card numbers, or other sensitive information during any click-to-chat conversation in which you elect to participate.

Links to Third Party Websites

Occasionally our Site may include a hyperlink ("Link") or a banner advertisement ("Banner Ad") containing a Link which allows you to connect to the home page of a third-party website ("Third-Party Site"). Senior Helpers or the Network may provide these Links to you as a convenient method of accessing information that may be useful or of interest to you. This Privacy Policy and the practices that we follow under this Privacy Policy do not apply to Third Party Sites.

We are not responsible for the content, accuracy, or opinions expressed on any Third-Party Site or for the privacy practices of any third party. We will not, and are under no obligation to, investigate, monitor or check the Third-Party Sites for accuracy or completeness, or for any obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, indecent, profane, defamatory or unlawful content or materials. Inclusion of any Link or Banner Ad to a Third-Party Site that is placed on our Site does not imply approval or endorsement of the Third-Party Site. You understand and agree that by clicking on a Link to a Third-Party Site you have left the Site, and the Senior Helpers Privacy Policy stated on the Site is no longer in effect.

Social Media

Our Site includes social media sharing tools and features, such as Facebook Like, YouTube, Twitter and "share" buttons and widgets, and interactive mini-programs that run on our Site (each a "Feature" and, collectively, the "Features"). These Features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on our Site and set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. Features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site.

We also maintain profiles or accounts with various social media providers, including, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Google+ (collectively, "Social Media Properties"). Your interactions with these Social Media Properties and/or the Features are governed by multiple privacy policies. Our collection use and disclosure of information obtained through the Social Media Properties and/or the Features is governed by this Privacy Policy to the same extent as information gathered through the Site; however, the privacy practices of the applicable social media provider are governed by the applicable social media provider's privacy policy. We encourage you to review the applicable social media provider's privacy policy before interacting with a Social Media Property and/or Feature.

Security

To reduce the possibility of unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place several physical, electronic and managerial procedures to help protect the information we collect online. In addition, we use standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates to secure all pages used for inputting users' Personal Information. However, due to the open communication nature of the Internet, no system can be completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information.

California Do Not Track Disclosure

Do Not Track is a web browser privacy preference that causes the web browser to broadcast a signal to websites requesting the user's activity that such activity will not be tracked. Senior Helpers' Site does not respond to Do Not Track signals.
