We also automatically collect certain personal information from emails we receive from clients and others.

Personal Information You Provide Voluntarily.  On some pages of the Sites, We provide online forms for the purposes of contacting us, registering for online services and establishing an account, subscribing to communications, registering for a training course or webinar, downloading information resources such as whitepapers, and engaging in promotional events or other purposes. Personal information collected may include name, phone number, mailing address and email address.

Users are requested to keep your User ID and password secure and not disclose them to a third party. The portal and services are intended to be used by professionals – government officials, contractors, attorneys, inspectors, among others – involved in the real estate, construction, management and building trades (collectively, “Clients”).

Users should assume that any and all uploaded Client Information, including any personal information, will be publicly available. (See our Terms of Use for more information.)  No financial or payment information is collected or processed when a user registers for the portal under a Client Account. If payment is enabled, such as to obtain a government permit, such payments are made through third-party payment processors. The collection and process of this information by the third-party payment processors is subject to their terms and policies. We do not have access to any financial information that you provide to any third-party payment processor.
