Our Privacy Policy

The Following describes the Privacy Policy for Fine Restoration’s website.

Your Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. We take it very seriously, which is why at this very moment, as you read this privacy policy, we do not know who you are. How Seriously you might ask? So  seriously that we probably care about your privacy as much as you do…we’re just sayin’  Oh yeah, and just to let you know, by using our website you are agreeing to these policies, and you are agreeing to provide us with some of your personal information. 

I know, right now you’re probably thinking “WHAT?! They just said they cared about our privacy, but now they’re tracking us?! What kind of malarkey is this?”  Well, we care about your privacy, but we care about your restoring your home after a disaster more…so yeah, if you fill out a form with your name on it, and your address, and your email, and phone number…well, we’re going to collect that data and…We’re going to call you back! It’s kind of scary how fast we call you back and can be on site. We take a lot of pride in our commitment to a fast response time.

I mean, we know it’s kind of creepy that we’re sitting around, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year waiting for you to call, but it’s even creepier that if you ask us to come over, we’ll be on site within about an hour. But hey, that’s the price you pay for super reliable service and a job well done. We may even share some of your personal information with your insurance company.  We don’t like to kiss and tell, but we do like to make sure that you get fairly compensated for your loss, so long as you have insurance coverage and the incident is covered. 

Just to let you know, we do like to figure out how you found our website, this allows us to know which avenues of marketing and advertising are doing the best for us and, in turn, this helps us keep our costs lower. So, we promise, we will look at your data, unless you tell us not to, then we’ll stop to the best of our ability.In trying to figure out how you found us, we may track your calls in, but this also is what allows us to monitor how our employees are doing and hey, we’re always trying to be the best at what we do. Below you have some more reading to do, but you can also opt in or out of our data collection and third party information on the website. We should warn you, opting out may or may not impact the performance of the website, sorry bout that!

Please choose your privacy settings

State Laws, Country Laws & Accompanying Rights

Different states and countries have different laws. We’re well aware that the EU has pretty strict privacy laws, but let’s be completely honest, if you’re living in the EU and on our website, we really aren’t trying to track your data. In fact, we’re probably trying to filter it out, but this new Google Analytics 4 is kind of hard to get the hang of, seriously, you can ask our web guy, he’s pretty smart and even he’s having trouble with it. Anyway, back to the point at hand, there may be different laws giving you additional rights, based on where you live. We have created an iron-clad privacy policy that complies fully with every jurisdiction in which we operate. Accordingly you may contact us any time at 913-270-3646 or admin@fine-restoration.com to assert any of your rights and we will, as quickly as possibly comply with your requests.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

It’s important for us to protect the privacy of the very young, for that reason, our website will never collect or maintain information on our website from minors…unless they fill out one of our forms. If they do, and we are made aware that the contact form was submitted by a child, we will delete the form. But we have bigger questions, why is your kid on a water damage restoration website? What made them fill our a form here? There are a lot better places on the internet for a child to be, and while we’re not questioning your parenting abilities, we’re just kinda scratching our heads…kids do the strangest things. Anyway, we don’t cater to minors, and we won’t, if your child has been on our site and submitted a contact form, please let us know and we’ll remove it.

Google Analytics

Fine-restoration uses Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the site. The tool uses “cookies,” which contrary to popular belief are not delicious snack cakes for all to enjoy. No, they are text files that are placed on your computer to collect information about who you are, how you got here, what you did on our website, and all that fun stuff. The cookie on the website has your IP address and we anonymize it, but it does let us know around the geographic region you came from, unless you’re using a VPN and honestly, while yeah, most VPNs are trackable, who has time for all that…err I mean, we care about your privacy.

We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information of visitors to our site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. Honestly, we found this privacy policy somewhere, we don’t know what Google does with your data, but they promise they don’t do anything bad.

We promise, we’re not in the business of selling your data. This is in large part because we don’t know who wants to buy it or how much it’s worth, but if you want to give us a lot of money for our data, we could be willing to sit down..Clearly, we’re kidding, but. if you or anyone you know would like to buy data we might always our privacy policy Seriously though, we wont ever sell your data nor link you to anything other than providing fantastic disaster restoration, quickly, and professionally. That’s literally the only reason we actually care about your data.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. Also, our web guy wants you to know that it makes his job, of tracking where you came from super hard..he’s a pretty nice guy, so maybe consent to cookies, for him, or don’t, because we lied about him being a nice guy earlier. If you’re interested, we can all plan a time to really mess with our webmaster, anyone else want in on this?

Other Collection of Personal Information

At times, you will be fully aware of information received, as you are the direct source providing it. For instance, you may comment on a blog post, reply to an email (whether broadcast message or autoresponder), provide an email address, complete a survey, requests SMS, or otherwise. Likewise, purchases necessarily involve collecting certain information, such as credit card information, Paypal addresses, your physical address for billing and/or shipping, phone number, and so on. Refusing to provide some of this information may lead to us being unable to provide you with the products or services you’ve requested. That being said, if you comment on our blog, or buy something from our website, we’re gonna be super confused. We’re not an ecommerce site and we have comments turned off. How did you leave one and what did you buy? We would pay for that data.

A prime example of limited access to our website is where content may be protected by a username and password. Most of that content is you know, where we publish whets on our website, in the backend of WordPress..why did you enter your user name and password, you don’t work for us, or manage our website. Hey, we’re on to you…we’ve got your data, which now we’re tracking because, don’t hack our website please!

Whether a username and password is generated by our website, or created by you, these will almost always be connected with some other information related to or connected with you. This is true since much content that is protected on the internet is subscription based, often paid for. Thus, the username and password must necessarily be tied to your other account data. Usernames and passwords, by their very nature, should be kept private.

Handling of Personal Information

Note that any personal information you provide to others apart from us or our vendors is wholly optional. As an example, you might disclose something in a blog post comment. That “private” information is now “public,” and we have no control over that. In like fashion, you sharing information with any other third party not functioning as a service provider to us puts that information beyond our control and becomes subject to the policy that party has in place.

Our primary intention for collecting personal and private information from you is simply to conduct our business. We can use this internally to better serve you. Accordingly, we see no reason to share your personal information to other parties and outside interests unless you have authorized us to do so. We may, speak to your insurance adjusters, but only with your knowledge and consent. 

Of course, there are instances where your information is stored with third party service providers, such as email service providers, as they provide services that are industry-leading in quality and security and are far more beneficial to our end user than attempting such services “in-house.” However, you are never required to deal with any such third party directly, they are limited in how they use your information, and they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.

However, of course, your information does comprise part of an overall whole. This aggregate of information, by contrast, may be used to understand our overall user base. Further, we may share this information about our website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third parties for various purposes, in our sole discretion. Like our web guy, he might know more about you than we do, we let him so that he can report back to us as to why he isn’t getting us as many leads as he used to. 

While we are staunch privacy advocates, there are times when even we may be forced to abandon these ideals. Just as major search engines face ongoing compulsion to provide data against their will, so too may the same occur with our website. Illegal activity or other serious acts or allegations could create legal liability for our website. In those cases, we reserve the right to share your information, or else may simply be compelled to do so by law. Yeah, so if the law is all like “WHO WAS ON YOUR WEBSITE LAST NIGHT” we’re probably going to comply with giving over any data we may have, but honestly, that seems like a pretty weird scenario.

On the other hand, there may be times when we would need to share your private information in order to protect our own interests. For instance, in cases of suspected or alleged copyright infringement or other intellectual property violations, it may be necessary to share personal information. Or like, maybe you were on this website and so was the person of your dreams, and you both emailed us at the same time, and then you agree to meet at the top of the seattle tower…Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, what are you guys doing on our website again? Go away, we’re busy trying to track other people’s activity on our site!

Links to Third Party Websites

We have included links on this website for your use and reference. We are not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You should be aware that the privacy policies of these websites may differ from our own. We link to Facebook and IICRC and X or twitter, or muskvision, or whatever it’s called. If you leave our website to go to theirs, we are unable to stop them from selling your data to people. Why do they know who wants your data and we don’t? We use Nimbata for our call tracking, Google Analytics, Google Ads, Google Local Service ads, Google Phone, Google Trends, and sometimes Bing.

Comments Policy

As you know, Web 2.0 is all about the conversation. But without a few simple ground rules, that conversation can turn into a shouting match that discourages others from entering into the fray.Especially since we don’t allow comments on our website, and who fights on a disaster restoration website? Cmon, seriously, grow up guys. We’re sick of it, you’re being too loud, and if you don’t settle down, we’re gonna turn this car around.

So here is Fine-Restoration.com  comments policy. By posting on my blog, you agree to the following: Don’t post on our blog. We don’t have a commentable blog, you’re in the wrong place. 

If you find a magical way to post a comment on our website, we will delete it. 

You retain ownership of your comments. I do not own them and I expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on my site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve me from any and all liability that may result from those postings.

You grant fine-restoration a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant me the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation. I’m pretty sure just saying that doesn’t make it so, but hey, I found this iron-clad privacy policy on the internet, so, you know it’s legit.

Phone Tracking – We utilize Nimbata Phone Tracking. When you call it dynamically swaps out the number meaning it calls a tracking number, and that’s how we know things like where you came to our site from, how you found us, and how we did on the phone. Most of our calls are monitored or recording for tracking purposes or quality assurance, but we let you know it when you call, if you don’t want to be recorded, hang up or ask us to call you back and the recording will stop. 

WP Smush – For some reason we’re supposed to have a bit about them in our privacy policy. They make our images smaller, but unless you upload images to us, which you can’t, you shouldn’t have to worry. 

Where we send your data

This web site uses a third party service to manage administrative tasks. If you leave a comment, submit personal information via a contact form, or otherwise exchange personal details with us, it is possible that we may use this service to manage that data. Please visit the SolidWP Privacy Policy for more information regarding the way they handle their data. Again, we’d like to ask you not to leave one, we have them turned off, we’re not a blog.
