You may choose to provide us with information. Examples include:
- Contact and identification information, such as your name, postal address, telephone number, and email address;
- Login and access credentials, such as your username and password for the Sites; and
- Information you include in your communications with us or in connection with a satisfaction or research survey (including demographic information, such as your age, gender, and occupation).
Information We Collect by Automated Means
When you visit our Sites, we may collect certain information by automated means, using technologies such as cookies, Web server logs, and Web beacons. This information may be used to provide a better-tailored experience on our Sites, and for market research, data analytics, and system administration purposes. For instance, we may use this information to determine whether you’ve visited us before or are new to our Sites, to store your preferences and settings, to provide sign-in authentication, and for compliance with our legal obligations, policies, and procedures.
Our Sites may use Web server logs to record information about your Site visits, such as your device type, operating system type, browser type, domain, system settings, and IP address, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located. These logs also may record information such as the address of the Web page that referred you to our Sites, and other information about your interaction with our Sites, such as which pages you visit. This is a common practice that supports the operation of our Sites.
Our Sites and e-mails may also contain tags known as “Web beacons” or “single-pixel gifs,” which are small electronic images used to help deliver cookies from our Sites, count visitors to our Sites, and determine whether e-mails are opened. We may use third-parties to place and analyze Web beacons, and these third-parties may also set or read a cookie on your computer.
We may also use third-party Web analytics services in our Sites, such as those provided by Google Analytics. Such service providers help us analyze how users use our Sites, and these providers may collect various information associated with your visits to our Sites, including your IP address. They may also place cookies to help with the analysis. To learn more about Google Analytics and how to opt-out, click here.

We may supplement information collected through our sites with information obtained from other businesses, such as updated addresses or phone numbers we obtain from vendors who maintain such data. We may also obtain information from public sources, such as information you submit in a public forum (for example, a customer review).
We may also obtain information about you from our affiliates, which includes Lowe’s Companies Inc. and its affiliates.

HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties (companies outside the Alacrity Services family, which including Lowe’s Companies Inc. and its affiliates) without your consent, except as described below.
In limited cases, we may disclose limited personal information (generally contact information) about our customers or contractors to trusted third-parties who may use the information to market their own products and services to the customers or contractors. For instance, we may provide information to a business who has agreed to offer our customers or contractors a discount or other exclusive offers.
In limited cases, we may disclose limited personal information about our policyholder customers to select insurance carriers for the purposes of identifying common customers for potential cooperation and further developing our products and services. In these instances, we do not authorize the recipient insurance carrier to use your information, except to the extent it is already known by them, for any other purpose without your consent.
We may disclose your personal information to companies that provide services to us (such as providers of hosting, support, delivery, printing, e-mail, and data enhancement) or that help us market our products and services. These companies may need access to information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are generally not authorized to use the information we disclose to them for any other purpose without your consent.
Legal, Enforcement, Security, and Investigation
We may disclose information about you (1) if we believe we are required to do so by law, regulation or legal process, such as a court order or subpoena; (2) as we deem appropriate or necessary in response to requests by government agencies, such as law enforcement authorities or tax authorities; (3) when we believe disclosure is appropriate or necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of Alacrity Services, our customers, our employees, or others, including to prevent physical, financial or other harm, injury or loss, or to collect debt you owe; or (4) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual unlawful activity.
Sale or Transfer of Business or Assets
We reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including, without limitation, in the event of a reorganization, dissolution, or liquidation).
Aggregate or De-Identified Data
We may share or make public aggregate or de-identified data derived from personally identifiable information. Such information, however, will not identify you or any other individual.
HOW WE PROTECT INFORMATION
We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed and intended to protect personal information against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. Despite these safeguards, due to inherent uncertainty in the use of the Internet and information systems and the potential for unlawful attacks by third parties, we cannot guarantee that the use of our Sites or computer systems will be completely safe or secure.
Information we collect and use may be transferred, stored, and accessed globally to support our operations. We retain information for as long as it is needed or useful to provide and improve our products and services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
