How We Protect Your Information

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our visitors is of utmost concern to us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, Maid Brigade can't ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk.


Remember to sign out of your Maid Brigade account where applicable and close your browser window when you have finished your work so that others cannot access your Personal Information.


Maid Brigade discloses Personal Information to those of its employees, contractors, agents and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on Maid Brigade’s behalf or to provide services. Some of those employees, contractors, agents and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your state, province or country. By using the Site or providing us information, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.


We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, we may not immediately delete residual copies of Personal Information that are on our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems. If you believe that Personal Information we maintain about you is inaccurate, subject to applicable law, you may have the right to request that we correct or amend certain information by contacting us as indicated below.


Maid Brigade undertakes commercially reasonable efforts to guard against unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of Personal Information, which efforts you agree are sufficient, adequate and complete. In some cases, we cannot control, and are not responsible for, information that is shared about you. For example:


  • Information You Share: Our Site may let you share information with others publicly. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines or otherwise further disclosed.
  • Social Media Accounts: Maid Brigade maintains various social network accounts such as, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Please note that comments and information that you leave in such settings are likely to be broadly visible and may not be controlled by Maid Brigade. We therefore are not responsible for any information or messages you leave in such settings or for how such information may be used by others.
  • Accessing and Updating your Personal Information: If you provide us with information or create an account in order to access or receive Resources, we may or may not be able to provide you with access to your Personal Information. If information that we control about you is incorrect, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it (unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes). When updating your Personal Information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. If you are unable to verify your identity, or if verification is not possible, we may not complete your request.

Business Transfers

As we continue to grow our business, we might add or transfer franchise locations. In such transactions, client and prospect information generally is provided to the new or different franchise as pertaining to that specific franchise territory. By giving us information about you, you consent to the transfer of information to the franchise.


In the event (i) Maid Brigade engages in one more asset sales or purchases, (ii) Maid Brigade is acquired, (iii) Maid Brigade engages in one or more business combinations, mergers or acquisitions, (iv) substantially all of Maid Brigade’s assets are acquired, or (v) Maid Brigade is subject to an event of bankruptcy, you acknowledge and agree that personal and other information comprises an asset of Maid Brigade and that the same is subject to assignment, transfer and/or acquisition by a third party. Accordingly, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Privacy Policy, you acknowledge and agree that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of Maid Brigade may continue to use your Personal Information thereafter, and that such subsequent use may not be consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Advertisements

Advertisements appearing on the Site may be delivered to visitors by advertising partners, who may set cookies or other technologies. These technologies allow the ad server to recognize your device each time it sends you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your device. This information allows ad networks, among other things, to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies and similar technologies by Maid Brigade and does not cover the use of technologies by any advertisers.

Comments

You acknowledge and agree that Maid Brigade has no duty or obligation to respond to or save visitor comments.

The Site may contain links to webpages or tools operated by parties other than Maid Brigade. We do not control such websites or tools and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy policies or other practices of such websites or service providers. Our inclusion of links to an outside website or tool does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or tools or any association with their operators. Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from an application or other websites) is free of viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. These websites and services may have their own privacy policies, which you will be subject to upon accessing the third party’s website. We strongly recommend you review the third party’s terms and policies.

California Consumer Privacy Act
As of January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) came into effect. The CCPA bestows certain additional privacy rights for natural residents of California in regard to Personal Information maintained by a ‘business’ about that consumer and/or household. Pursuant to Section 1798.140(c) of the California Civil Code, the CCPA only applies to for-profit businesses doing business in the State of California that satisfy one or more of the following conditions:


  • Annual gross revenues in excess of 25 million dollars ($25,000,000);
  • Receive or disclose the personal information of 50,000 or more California residents, households, or devices on an annual basis; or
  • Derive 50% or more of their annual revenue from selling California residents’ personal information.


Your privacy is extremely important to us, however, as Maid Brigade is not a ‘business’ as defined by the CCPA, Maid Brigade will not respond to CCPA consumer requests at this time. Maid Brigade continues to value your privacy and may update this Privacy Policy as required by law.
