By installing any third-party application, you authorize such third-party applications to perform the actions and/or share with the third-party application the information communicated to [Spruce Cleaning Services] or requested from [Spruce Cleaning Services]. Spruce will send that information via a third-party application, which will then be routed via the internet. [Spruce Cleaning Services] is not liable for any dissemination, use, misuse, or disclosure of the user’s information as a result of using this or any third-party application.
Some of the information we collect through this Site may be “personal information”—information that, alone or in combination with other information available to us, identifies you personally. Other information, such as that collected by cookies, may be non-personally identifiable.
Additional privacy notices (“Privacy Notices”), provided at the time we collect your information, may supplement or amend this Policy from time to time. Certain pages of this Site, for example, may include Privacy Notices that provide more information about the information we collect on those pages, why we need that information, and what choices you may have about how we use that information. In some cases, specific Privacy Notices may be required in order to comply with the privacy laws of one of the countries, provinces, or states with which we do business.
By using this Site, you agree to the collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of your information in accordance with the terms of this Policy (and any Privacy Notices that apply to you). You may not use this Site if you do not consent to the collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of your information as described in this Policy (and any Privacy Notices that apply to you). Please contact us using the information provided below if you have any questions about this Policy or any Privacy Notice.
This Policy is a part of the Terms of Service, which govern your use of this Site. At the bottom of each page of this Site, a link to our Terms of Service is provided.
Generally, we respect your right to choose how we collect, use, and disclose information about you. This Policy explains some of your options, such as opting out of receiving “cookies,” and we may ask you to indicate your preferences at the time and on the page where you provide your information.
Mechanisms should not be tracked. According to California law, this Policy must address how we respond to any “Do-Not-Track (‘DNT’) signal” sent by your browser. We currently make no guarantee that we will honor DNT signals due to the changing state of technology and industry indecision regarding the meaning of DNT signals.
Preferences previously expressed You have the ability to change previously expressed preferences about how we use your information. If you wish to be removed from our mailing lists at any time, please contact us using the information provided below.
Spruce Cleaning Services reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to update or modify this Policy and any Privacy Notice by posting the revised version of the Policy or Privacy Notice on this Site.

Information Collected by Cookies and Other Technologies. To collect information and support certain features of this Site, we use “cookies” and other technologies. We may, for example, use these technologies to:

The information we collect through cookies and similar technologies is not personally identifiable in and of itself, but we may link it to personal information you provide. If you do not want to receive cookies, you can configure your browser to reject them or to notify you when one is placed on your computer. Although you are not required to accept cookies when visiting this Site, if your browser rejects our cookies, you may be unable to use all of its functionality.

On our Sites, you have options regarding the collection of information by third parties.

If some of the third parties that collect interest-based information on this Site do not participate in the industry-developed opt-out website, the best way to avoid third-party tracking of your online behaviors may be through your browser settings and cookie deletion. Please note that the industry-developed opt-out mechanism is device and browser specific.

With Third-Party Social Media Platforms. We may include functionality on this Site that allows you to automatically post information about your activities on this Site to a third-party social media platform (such as Facebook or Twitter). If you choose to use this feature, people who have access to your profile on the third-party platform may be able to see the actions you have taken, such as the products or services you have purchased. As a result, you should not expect privacy in those actions. Furthermore, if you choose to link your profile on this Site to a third-party social media platform, we may share the information in your profile with that third-party platform. We may also use third-party social media platforms to provide you with interest-based advertisements. To provide such ads, we may convert your email address into a unique value that our partner company can match with a user on their platform. Although we do not provide these platform vendors with any personal information, they may gain insights about individuals who respond to the ads we serve.
