fsboHandshake.com (“Handshake”, the “Service”, “we”, or “us”) respects and protects the privacy of consumers. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes what information we collect, how we use that information, and some of your privacy rights regarding that information.


Collection of Information and Your Privacy Rights


What information we collect and how we collect it.


Handshake may collect user submitted information such as your name, address, phone number, email and password data to authenticate users, maintain accounts, and to send notifications to those users relating to the Handshake service. This information may be derived from registrations for an online account with Handshake by you, entering a contest or sweepstakes promotion, participating in online surveys or questions, making a purchase with Handshake or a partner, requesting information, downloading our mobile application, connecting with us through a social media site such as Facebook, by posting content on any of our services, or otherwise submitting information to us.


Handshake may automatically collect certain other information about the computer, devices, or mobile phones you use when connecting to the Service. This information can include but is not limited to the device IP address, date/time stamp, aggregate user data, and browser type. This data is used to manage the website, track usage and improve the website services. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to Handshake’s account holders. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.


Handshake may collect information regarding your location. This can include your city, state, and country, and may include information derived from the GPS location determined by your device. We use this information to tailor the Service to your location and provide relevant advertisements to your geographic area. If you do not want us to have such information, you may be able to disable the GPS location feature on your device if it allows you to do so. Please see your device’s manufacturer instructions to determine if this is an option. Otherwise, you can choose to not use our Service.


We may use cookies when you use our services. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer's hard drive by our servers to identify your computer to our servers. You can disable cookies or otherwise manage them through tools provided with your browser software and with third-party software packages, or choose to not use our Service.


These cookies contain no personally identifiable information. The cookies may reflect de-identified demographic or other data linked to data you voluntarily have submitted to us, such as


your email address, that we may share with any third party, solely in hashed, non-human readable form. To learn about how you can opt-out of the receipt of cookies, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices and to learn more about cookies in general, please visit http://www.cookiecentral.com. Handshake does not have a mechanism or process to respond to any “do not track” signals which a web browser may send or receive, other than as expressly described in this Privacy Policy.


We do not knowingly collect information about minors under the age of 18. MINORS UNDER THE AGE OF 18 SHOULD NOT PROVIDE OR SUBMIT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, INCLUDING THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS, TO HANDSHAKE. If Handshake is notified it has information about a minor under the age of 18, that information will be promptly deleted from our database. Minors are not permitted to open accounts with Handshake.


Use of Information and User Data


How we use and share the information we collect.


Except as otherwise described in this privacy statement, Handshake will not disclose personal information to any third party unless we believe that disclosure is necessary: (1) to conform to legal requirements or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other legal process received by Handshake, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; (2) to enforce the Handshake Terms of Use Agreement or to protect our rights; (3) to protect the safety of members of the public and users of the service; or (4) to complete a service Handshake offers. Personal Information may be used in the course of providing the services offered by Handshake, such as sharing such information with a title company, escrow company, insurance company, inspection company, etc., or completing a form, which may result in such information being shared with third parties consistent with the purpose of such services.


Handshake reserves the right to transfer personal information to a successor in interest that acquires rights to that information as a result of the sale of Handshake or substantially all of its assets to that successor in interest. For more information see the "Changes in Our Privacy Policy" section below.


How we store and protect the information we receive.


Handshake user accounts are secured by user-created passwords and Handshake takes certain precautions to ensure that user account information is kept private. We use reasonable measures to protect user information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot guarantee the absolute security of member account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time. For any additional information about the security measures we use on Handshake, please contact us at privacy at fsboHandshake.com.
