Localad Services Handyman Assist

 

Through use of this website, and through normal business operations, I’ve collected some contact information from you, so I can send you any downloads you have requested, updated blog entries and tell you about other things I think you’ll find useful.

Periodically, I’ll send you e-mails detailing newsletters, product and service updates and even a few enticements for further business. Or if you have subscribed, I’ll send regular updates to my blog. I promise I’ll try hard not to be spammy or annoying.

At all times, there will be a fully functional unsubscribe link at the bottom of all my emails. It is completely automatic and if you unsubscribe, I won’t contact you again.

I also undertake not to give or sell your details to any other organisation, except as described below in the legal jargon.

 

OVERVIEW

 

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Localad Services collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a “User”) of the https://www.localadserv.com.au website (“Site”). This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by Localad Services such as the https://www.localadserv.com.au web presence.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a User shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Localad Services. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, Users are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

 

  1. Personal identification information

We may collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to:

  • When Users visit our Site
  • Register on the Site
  • Place an order or request a quote
  • Respond to any surveys
  • Subscribe to the Site’s blog posts

And in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we shall make available on our Site.

Users may be asked for, as appropriate:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Mailing address
  • Phone number
  • Credit card information

Users may, however, visit our Site anonymously. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personal identification information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities.

 

  1. Non-personal identification information

We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site.

Non-personal identification information may include:

  • The browser name
  • The type of computer and technical information about a User’s means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system, the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information.

 

  1. Web browser cookies

Our Site may use “cookies” to enhance User experience.

A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID. A User’s web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. The User may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the Site may not function properly.

Through the use of cookies, Localad Services can provide the Users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the User in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our Site Users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for Users to utilize the Site.

The website User that uses cookies, does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed because this is taken over by the Site, and the cookie is thus stored on the User’s computer system. Another example is the cookie used for a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via use of a cookie.

The User may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the User deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

You can check out our Cookie Policy here.

 

  1. How we use collected information

Localad Services collects and uses Users personal information for the following purposes:

  • To improve customer service– Your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs.
  • To personalize user experience– We may use information in the aggregate to understand how our Users as a group use the services and resources provided on our Site.
  • To improve our Site– We continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you.
  • To process transactions– We may use the information Users provide about themselves when placing an order only to provide service to that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the service.
  • To administer content, promotion, survey or other Site feature
  • To send Users information they agreed to receiveabout topics we think will be of interest to them.
  • To send periodic emails– The email address Users provide for order processing, will only be used to send them information and updates pertaining to their order. It may also be used to respond to their inquiries, and/or other requests or questions. Users will also be subscribed to our mailing list. They will receive emails that may include company news, updates, related product or service information, etc.

If at any time the User would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we’ve included detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email. The User may also contact us via our Site or email Handyman Assist to unsubscribe.

 

  1. Subscription to our newsletters

On the website of Localad Services Handyman Assist, Users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our blog updates. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data is transmitted, as well as when the updates are ordered from the controller.

Localad Services informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The business’ newsletter may only be received by the User if:

  • The User has a valid e-mail address and
  • The User registers to receive any communication from the Site, such as updates or newsletters.

During registration for the newsletter or an opt-in, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the User at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a User at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

 

  1. Newsletter tracking

Any newsletter from Localad Services contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Localad Services may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a User, and which links in the e-mail were called up by Users.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the User. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Users are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of a double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. Localad Services automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

We use MailChimp as our email provider. To read their privacy policy, click here.

 

  1. Contact possibility via the website

The website of Localad Services Handyman Assist contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a User contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the User are automatically stored.

Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a User to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the User. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.

  1. How we protect your information

  1. How we accept payments

On this website, the controller has integrated components of Stripe. Stripe is an online payment service provider and is able to process virtual payments through credit cards.

The personal data transmitted to Stripe is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or other data necessary for payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data, which are in connection with any respective order.

The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to Stripe, in particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The personal data exchanged between Stripe and the controller for the processing of the data will be transmitted by Stripe to economic credit agencies. This transmission is intended for identity and creditworthiness checks.

Stripe will, if necessary, pass on personal data to affiliates and service providers or subcontractors to the extent that this is necessary to fulfil contractual obligations or for data to be processed in the order.

The User has the possibility to revoke consent for the handling of personal data at any time from Stripe. A revocation shall not have any effect on personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing.
