How we use and share the information we collect
We use the information we collect to provide and maintain our service, and to evaluate our service. We treat your information as confidential, use industry standard practices to protect it, and aim to collect no more than is required and to keep it for only as long as required. We use and share information for the following purposes.
To provide and maintain our service. We use the information we collect to provide, evaluate, improve and personalise our service to you. We, for example, use this information to prefill work orders, display relevant contractors, provide you with support, communicate with you, and comply with our legal obligations. We do not disclose any of your personal information, except as described below, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, or to protect the rights or property of FM Clarity.
To facilitate third-party communication. When you create or execute a work order through our Services, your information is provided to us and to the contractors with whom you choose to deal. In order to facilitate your order, we provide your information to that contractor in a similar manner as if you had made an order directly with the contractor. If you provide a mobile phone number, contractors or FM Clarity may send you text messages regarding your work order’s status. Information you choose to share with a contractor when you make and/or pay an order through our Services may be used by the contractor for its own purposes. We do not control the privacy practices of contractors or any other third-parties you may interact with in the course of using our Service. Please contact the contractor or third-party directly if you want to learn about their privacy practices.
