"Personal Information" means individually identifiable information about an individual collected from that individual by Homee through the Homee Platform or by other means (for example, by Your voluntarily submitting Personal Information to Us via the completion of a registration form or in an email You send to Us). The types of Personal Information that We may request or collect may include, without limitation, information about you in the following general categories:
Where there are links between the Homee Platform and third party sites or social networks, We may collect account information for accounts You use on those third party sites or social networks. We collect payment card and financial institution information as well, in order to allow Us to collect and distribute payments. In some instances, We may also collect geo-location data of Your mobile or other device, including, without limitation, GPS-based, Wi-Fi-based, or cell-based location information. Even though We don't view them as "Personal Information," We may also collect your internet protocol (IP) address, MAC address, or other machine identifiers as you access the Homee Platform.
We require registration in order for you to use the Homee Platform. As part of the registration process you will be required to provide Us with Personal Information. Some of the Personal Information that We ask you to provide is mandatory and some is voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information, you may not be able to use the Homee Platform or your use may be limited to only certain portions. We reserve the right to change which parts of the Website require registration, and which do not, as We modify and update the Homee Platform.
You may update Your Personal Information through the Homee Platform. If you should become aware that your Personal Information with Homee is not complete and accurate, you must promptly update your Personal Information via your account. It is your obligation to ensure that your Personal Information is kept up to date. This is important for many reasons, including allowing educational institutions to verify your use of the Homee Platform and credit you receive for the work you do through the Homee Platform. We may backup or replicate Personal Information stored through the Homee Platform for disaster recovery or other purposes. Updates to your Personal Information will not necessarily be reflected in such backups or replicated data when you make those updates.

Some data, such as without limitation the types of services used and the numbers of users We receive daily in various parts of the Homee Platform, may be used for statistical, marketing, promotional, or any other lawful purposes.

Homee has implemented industry-standard measures to protect the security of the Personal Information We collect via the Homee Platform.

The data center(s) where We host our servers are also SOC (formerly SAS 70) certified.
Regardless of what measures are used to protect Personal Information, no one can guarantee, and We do not guarantee, that your Personal Information is completely secure at all times. If We determine that your Personal Information was accessed in an improper manner, We will comply with applicable laws as We understand them and will cooperate with internal investigators or law enforcement (including by possibly disclosing your Personal Information to such investigators or law enforcement agencies).
