But HON does own this information forever, right, to use for whatever purpose it wishes … now and in the future? Can you name the people and entities that have access to all participating inspectors’ client base?
Forgive me Dom, I just want to nail this down once and for all. You say my client MUST opt into receiving the monthly maintenance newsletters. What are they agreeing to when they “opt in?” Who gets my client’s data?
Yes. They’re agreeing to receive the monthly newsletters. We’ve been EXTREMELY cautious about spamming. If we’re seen as spammers then the whole system falls apart so that doesn’t work! It’s technically a double opt in as the inspectors are explaining the app and newsletters on site and the inspectors have the option of not submitting the information if the client doesn’t want it as well.
From Kevin (as I wanted to make sure I got my facts right!)
Just as you negotiate the best deals you can for your members so will we for our Home Owners Network members.
Just as you have offers from your approved vendors on your website so will we have offers to our members on our website.
Your latest email newsletter had 67 offers in it. Ours will have fewer offers each time but will still have some.
Any offer made on our newsletters or website will require the client to click through and request it.
No client will get spammed, called or harassed.
We will not “sell” any members or client’s information. We collect all basic information to better provide support and make available benefits. If
a member opts to take advantage of a “pods” member discount they will not be contacted by another vendor. It is not our intention to “spam” anyone and members can unsubscribe at any time.
We are not selling information.
I just signed up for the “Inspector 360” program on your site and got 5 emails in 5 minutes. We are not doing that.
