Privacy Policy in Summary

This summary is not intended to replace the full privacy policy and you should not rely on its content as a legal definition of our privacy policy.

We only collect two types of data from you, data you input somewhere on the site, and information that is offered through your internet connections or through the configuration of your computer (or other devices).

Most data is used to analyse user trends, for example which browsers people use, location of users (regionally) – such information allows us to be more targeted to the needs of our users. Other data you provide us with may not be specific to you – for example you may “Rate a Pro” which means you will be providing information on your experiences with Trade Professionals.

In the Find a Pro service we offer to send Trade Professionals details to your email account. When you enter your email address we record this. Within the email that we send you (and only on the first occasion that we do send you an email) will be a username and a password. You should keep this safe, as this will allow you to login and amend your details. By entering your email address you are accepting our full Privacy Policy terms, and will automatically consent to the use of your details in the following mannor:
  • being made available to third parties to promote relevant products and services
  • HomePro sending you relevant offers and deals from third parties
  • HomePro sending you their periodic newsletter
If you do not wish to agree to any combination of these, you should login to your personal details and tick the relevant Privacy Rights, as detailed below:

Privacy 1: Will not allow your information to be made available to third parties to promote relevant products and services
