Privacy Policy


Handy Banjo, Inc (“Handy Banjo,” “we,” or “our”) allows its users (the “Consumers”) to find, contract, and review a variety of home-related service companies (the “Service Providers,” and collectively with the Consumers, “you” or “your”). Our Platform is an online community where homeowners can find, connect, and work with vetted and accountable service providers for everything from the front curb to the back fence. In addition, our platform makes communication, scheduling, tracking, and payment easy. This Privacy Policy is intended to inform you of our policies and practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of any information submitted to us or collected through your use of the Platform. This Privacy Policy does not pertain to any publicly available information that happens to appear on our Platform.

To make this Policy more readable, other Capitalized terms are defined below.

User Consent

By accessing or otherwise using the Platform, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service and consent to the processing of your Personal Information and Anonymous Information according to this Privacy Policy.

We do not intentionally process data from outside the United States. Your Personal Information may be processed by us in the country where it was collected as well as other countries (including the United States) where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country.

Regarding Children

Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use the Platform and we do not intentionally collect or maintain Personal Information from those who are under 13 years old. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. Thus, if we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under 13, we will take steps to remove that user’s Personal Information from our databases. By using the Platform, you represent that you are able to form a binding contract in your jurisdiction.

Collection and Use of Information

Information Submitted to Handy Banjo

In general, we collect both Personal Information and Non-Identifiable Information that you submit to us voluntarily through the Platform. We collect information that you submit in the process of creating or editing your account and user profile on the Platform. For example, our registration and login process requires you to provide us with your name, a valid email address and a password of your choice. Due to the nature of the services available on our Platform, we may also collect your home address when you decide to inquire about any services using the Platform. When you personalize your profile and use the features of the Platform, we will collect any information you voluntarily provide, and we may also request optional information to support your use of the Platform, including Non-Identifiable Information such as your year of birth, gender and other demographic information. We also collect information in the form of the content that you submit during your use of the Platform, such as photos, reviews, ratings and other information you choose to submit, including information from other social networks that you choose to link to your Handy Banjo profile.

If you send an e-mail to us, or fill out our “Feedback” form through the Platform, we will collect your e-mail address and the full content of your e-mail, including attached files, and other information you provide. When you finalize transactions through our Platform, you will need to submit your credit card or other payment information so that our service providers can process your payment for those products and services. When you participate in contests, sweepstakes, or other activities that we make available on the Platform, we will collect the information designated along with such activity, which may include your Personal Information to permit us to contact you in connection with that activity. If you choose to sign up to receive information about products or services that may be of interest to you, we will collect your email address and all related information. Additionally, we collect any information that you voluntarily enter, including Personal Information, into any postings, comments, or forums within the Handy Banjo community.

We may monitor your communications with other Consumers or Service Providers through our Messaging functions and elsewhere on the Platform in order to detect, diffuse, and resolve potential conflicts, and for other purposes in our sole discretion. We will treat any Personal Information and Non-Identifiable Information that we obtain through such monitoring in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Information from Other Sources

We may receive information, including Personal Information, about you from other sources with which you have registered, companies with whom we have partnered, or other third parties. If you connect to the Platform through another social network, we may collect information about you and your friends from that social network in order to provide you with a more personalized experience. For instance, we may collect your user ID or profile information from that third-party social network that you have permitted to be displayed through the Platform in order to display you as a friend or in association with your profile and connections. Handy Banjo will treat this information in the same manner as we treat the information we collect directly from you. However, please remember that the third party providers of such information handle it according to their own privacy policies.

Information Collected Via Technology

As you use the Platform, certain technical and usage information may be collected from you, including your Internet protocol address, browser type, and operating system. In connection with your use of our Platform through a mobile device, we may also gather information from your mobile device including its unique identification number and your geographic location. We also use Cookies and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the Services and information for which you searched and viewed, or on which of the advertisements displayed on the Platform you clicked. This type of information is collected to make Handy Banjo and its solutions more useful to you and to tailor the Handy Banjo experience to meet your special interests and needs.

An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. We, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access the Platform to assist with ad targeting.

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with Handy Banjo. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. In order to use our services offered through the Platform, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of the Platform may not work properly, and you may not be able to find or receive Services.

We may also enable third-party advertising networks, advertisers and ad servers to promote third-party products or services by placing advertisements on the Platform. These advertisers and ad servers may use their own Cookies or “Web Beacons” (which are usually small, transparent graphic images) in order to monitor information related to those advertisements and your use of the Platform. Clicking on such advertisements will direct you to the website of a third-party and the advertiser. This Privacy Policy does not cover the privacy practices of any advertisers or ad servers. For more information about third-party advertising, and to exercise your choices regarding advertising customization by third-party ad networks, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website. (

Derived Information

We may use Personal Information from any of the categories above to create Derived Information.

In general, both the Personal Information and Non-Identifiable Information you submit to us is used to provide you access to the Platform, to improve the Platform, to better tailor the features, performance, and support of the Platform, and to offer you additional information, opportunities, promotions and functionality from us, our partners or our advertisers. For example, we may use and display your full name and email address when you send an email notification to a friend through the Platform or the social network from which you have connected to the Platform (such as in an invitation, or when sharing your content). We may also use your phone number to call you or send you text messages in order to facilitate the services you request, and to ask for feedback about your experience with the Platform.
