Our policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. Our goal is to provide a "buyer centric" service to our members. This means we strive to represent the best interest of our members rather than the suppliers and advertisers that would like to sell products and services to our members. We will not willfully disclose individually identifiable information about our customers to any third party without first receiving that user's permission.
Does FacilityDude.com ask for personal information?
Yes, we do. FacilityDude.com may ask for your name, email address, and other personal information when you sign up for our services. We may also ask for such information at other times, such as when you request information from FacilityDude.com.
Will FacilityDude.com disclose any of my personal information?
FacilityDude.com will 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 FacilityDude.com. Under confidentiality agreements, FacilityDude.com may match user information with third party data.
FacilityDude.com does disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, 45% of our users are female) in order to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes. If/when we do match user information, we endeavor to keep personal information confidential from those third parties.
Additionally, if you make a purchase from our site, the information obtained during your visit to these areas, and the information that you give such as your credit card number and contact information, is provided to the merchant of record. These merchants can be FacilityDude.com or third party companies. These merchants have separate privacy and data collection practices. FacilityDude has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies.
How does FacilityDude.com use my personal information?
FacilityDude.com's goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with the most personalized web experience possible and our advertisers with an efficient means to reach the right audience. By knowing a little about you, FacilityDude.com is able to deliver more relevant content, and hence better service, to you.
Will FacilityDude.com use my information for direct or email mailings?
We will send you information about our various products and services, or other products and services we feel may be of interest to you. You can remove yourself from this distribution list via a link in the communication.

What else should I know about my privacy?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example in discussion forums, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Furthermore, while we strive to protect your personal information, FacilityDude.com cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. In addition, FacilityDude.com partners and third party Internet sites and services accessible through FacilityDude.com or parties whom we inform you are collecting data in connection with sweepstakes, promotions, etc., have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us.
