Storing personal information

When you request a quote, the information you fill out is direct personal information. Your name, email address, telephone numbers, and other such personal information is stored in our database for a period of six (6) months. If at any time you decide you would no longer like to receive emails, promotions, or email-exclusive deals, you can simply unsubscribe by following the instructions within the email itself.

This is done to ensure a couple of things:

Serving you better:

With the information that you provide, Ottawa General Contractors LTD is able to get a better understanding of the way ‘you’ use our services. When you visit a website that uses the same advertising services as ottawageneralcontractors.com, or if you interact with the content within our website, we are able to tailor our services to fit your needs directly.

Return Users:

We understand that life is not a constant; things come up which may cause you to stop using our services. As a result, we find that it is most convenient to save your information for when you decide to come back. If you choose not to, then simply wait the six (6) months and all information we have stored will be deleted.

  1. Enforce any and all applicable terms and agreements, including violation of said terms.
  2. Protect all rights, property, information, or enforce any safety provisions made to protect ottawageneralcontractors.com or the users or the public as is required or permitted by law.

Cookies

Internet cookies are little bits of text which go between the web browser and the website it is trying to access. Websites use the cookies to create an identity around the person accessing the site; without cookies, they would not be able to distinguish one user from another, or be able to pass information from one webpage to another during a single web-session.

How we use cookies

This is useful to websites, because it allows them to better personalize what content they show to tailor directly to your preferences! Additionally, the data the web servers collect is nothing personal; it cannot identify people, so instead it creates an identity by combining your browser, user account, and computer.

For Ottawa General Contractors LTD, the cookies we collect will be used primarily for advertising; by collecting information about web pages you have recently browsed, we can choose specific advertisements which may be of interest to you. So when you’re looking for a home renovation, you won’t see ads trying to sell you on car insurance!
