CAPTIVA8 PRIVACY POLICY

The Captiva8 Privacy Policy was updated on November 5, 2020.

We appreciate your interest in us and hope to make your online experience enjoyable and secure. Your privacy is very important to us and we will make every reasonable effort to safeguard any information we collect.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.

You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Captiva8 or an affiliated company. Captiva8 and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if you choose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.

Here are some examples of the types of personal information Captiva8 may collect and how we may use it:

Types of Personal Information Captiva8 Collects

  • When you connect to our services, contact us including by social media or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, device identifiers, IP address, location information, credit card information and profile information where the contact is via social media.
  • When you inquire about our services or that of an affiliated company, Captiva8 may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. Captiva8 will use such information to fulfill your requests, provide the relevant product or service, or for anti-fraud purposes.
  • In certain jurisdictions, we may ask for a government issued ID in limited circumstances, including age verification, or as required by law. 

Use of Your Personal Information

  • We may process your personal information: for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, with your consent, for compliance with a legal obligation to which Captiva8 is subject, for the performance of a contract to which you are party, in order to protect your vital interests, or when we have assessed it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Captiva8 or a third party to whom it may be necessary to disclose information. If you have questions about this legal basis you can contact the Privacy Officer at info@captiva8.com.
  • The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Captiva8’s latest service announcements, software updates, and upcoming events. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt-out anytime by emailing info@captiva8.com.
  • We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes. 
  • We may also use your personal information for account and network security purposes, including in order to protect our services for the benefit of all our users, and pre-screening or scanning uploaded content for potentially illegal content, including child sexual exploitation material. Where we use your information for anti-fraud purposes it arises from the conduct of an online transaction with us. We limit our uses of data for anti-fraud purposes to those which are strictly necessary and within our assessed legitimate interests to protect our customers and our services. For certain online transactions we may also validate the information provided by you with publicly accessible sources.
  • We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with identification of users, and to determine appropriate services. 
  • From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Captiva8, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
  • We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Captiva8’s services and customer communications.
  • If you apply for a position at Captiva8 or we receive your information in connection with a potential role at Captiva8, we may use your information to evaluate your candidacy and to contact you. If you are a candidate, you will receive more information about how Captiva8 handles candidate personal information at the time of application.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal and Non-Trade Secret Information

  • We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
  • We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where a Captiva8 product is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our services and communications.
  • We may collect information regarding customer activities on our website.
  • This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
  • We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
  • With your explicit consent, we may collect data about how you use your device and applications in order to help app developers improve their apps.
  • If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

Cookies and Other Technologies

  • Captiva8’s websites, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
  • Captiva8 also uses cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website, online services, and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with Captiva8 more convenient and personal.
  • Knowing someone using your computer or device has shopped for a certain product or used a particular service helps us make our advertising and email communications more relevant to your interests. And knowing your contact information, hardware identifiers, and information about your computer or device helps us personalize your operating system, and provide you with better customer service.
  • If you want to disable cookies and you’re using the Safari web browser, go to Safari preferences and then to the privacy pane to manage your preferences. For example, on an Apple mobile device, go to Settings, then Safari, scroll down to the Privacy & Security section, and tap on “Block Cookies” to manage your preferences. For other browsers, check with your provider to find out how to disable cookies. Please note that certain features of the Captiva8 website will not be available once cookies are disabled.
  • As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Captiva8 may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
  • In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Captiva8 website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages. Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

California Privacy Rights

California consumers have a right to knowledge, access, and deletion of their personal information under the California Consumer Privacy Act. California consumers also have a right to opt out of the sale of their personal information by a business and a right not to be discriminated against for exercising one of their California privacy rights. 

Captiva8 provides notice of our privacy practices in our Privacy Policy. The Privacy Policy includes what personal information is collected, the source of the personal information, and the purposes of use, as well as whether Captiva8 discloses that personal information and if so, the categories of third parties to whom it is disclosed. The nature of Captiva8’s business is to connect a consumer with options for home care services. Captiva8 does not sell consumer’s information to any third party and does not discriminate in response to privacy rights requests.

California consumers with a Captiva8 account can exercise their rights directly or through an authorized agent by signing in to their Captiva8 account at https://www.captiva8.com. If you are a California consumer without a Captiva8 account and you or your authorized agent would like to exercise your privacy rights, requests may be made to info@captiva8.com. If you do not have a Captiva8 account, Captiva8 will ask you for information which we consider necessary to verify your identity for security and to prevent fraud. This information may include name, contact information, and information related to your transaction or relationship with Captiva8, but the specific information requested may differ depending on the circumstances of your request for your security and to protect privacy rights. If we delete your personal information, we will both render certain personal information about you permanently unrecoverable and also deidentify certain personal information.

Do Not Track

Captiva8 does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Third parties that have content embedded on Captiva8’s website(s) such as a social feature or a stock ticker may set cookies on a user’s browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific Captiva8 website from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from Capiva8’s website(s) unless you provide it to them directly.

Notice for Minors

Captiva8 does not communicate with minors. Proof of age may be required when initiating a conversation in chat application with a representative.
