QUALITY BUILT, LLC | PRIVACY POLICY

PRIVACY STATEMENT

Overview

We are committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you a secure online experience. This Privacy Statement governs your use of the software application QB Builder Link® (referred herein as “QBBL” or “Application”) for mobile and other devices that was created by Quality Built, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Company”, “we”, “us”, “our”). This Privacy Statement does not apply to any other applications, websites, services or products offered by the Company, each of which may have its own privacy statements that differ materially from this Privacy Statement.

The Application is a secure, client-friendly, construction reporting program that efficiently captures construction data and QA (Quality Assurance) processes during the course of new construction. The Application is a collaborative risk management tool that allows the Company’s field consultants to work together with construction managers, superintendents and others involved in the construction industry to track and remediate anomalies observed during construction. Data collected using the Application is summarized in reports that are distributed via automated emails, which provide action items and promote process improvement for construction projects. The Application is versatile and allows the Company’s builder clients to use the Application to collect data independently of the Company’s field consultants in support of such builders’ internal QA program.

By downloading and logging into the Application, you acknowledge and fully understand this Privacy Statement and consent to the information collection and use practices described herein and in the materials associated with the Application. If you do not agree to this Privacy Statement, do not download or log into the Application.

Collection of your Personal Information

The Application obtains information that you provide to us when you download and register the Application. Registration with us is mandatory to enable you to log into the Application and use the basic features of the Application. Builders and/or owners of construction projects will also be required to enter into a contract with us to obtain QBBL services and may be required to provide additional information through the contracting process. Once a contract is entered, additional users associated with the construction project may be entitled to download and register the Application.

The Application may be used in connection with the Quality Built Information Network (“QBIN”), which is accessed through our website at www.qualitybuilt.com. Reports generated by the Application can be accessed through QBIN. Our website has its own privacy policy and terms of use, which governs your access to and use of QBIN. We encourage you to review the privacy statement and terms of use on our website to understand how our website collects, uses and shares information submitted to QBIN.

Upon execution of a contract for services by the builder and/or owner, we will set up the construction project through our CRM (customer relationship management) system, which will interface with the Application enabling the Application to access the construction project’s name, module name and address, if available. Only registered users will be able to access project data via CRM. When users of the Application register with us, they will be required to provide the user’s full name, telephone number, title, Company name, and email address.

To access the Application, users will be asked to log in with a user name, typically the user’s email address, and password. We will assign users an initial password which can later be changed by the user through QBIN. Passwords are encrypted. Users may also be requested to provide questions and secret answers, which we use to help verify your identity and assist in resetting your password.

When users download and register the Application, we collect the following information:

  • A User ID assigned by us to identify the person collecting the data;
  • Answers to checkpoints (quality metrics) collected through the Application;
  • Photos taken at the time the checkpoint is answered. We do not access the photo gallery located on the mobile device, but we do move the photo taken through the Application into an album which is located on the mobile device after the collected photo has been sent to us through the Application;
  • The time the answer and photos were collected; and
  • Meta data for the photo, which can include the geo-location of the photo.

We do not collect the following information:

  • Mobile telephone number;
  • Call logs;
  • Contacts;
  • Financial and payment information or social security numbers; or
  • Videos.
