How do we store your data?

Grout Doctor securely stores your data at Silicon Mountain Technologies in Arvada, Colorado. The computers/servicers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. If we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. However, because data transmission over the Internet is never 100% secure, we cannot guaranty the security of any information you transmit to us from our Website and therefore your use of our Website is at your own risk.

Grout Doctor will store your data indefinitely. Once you provide information for an estimate or to contact us, our database stores your data for an indefinite amount of time. This stored data cannot be deleted but can be inactivated. We use this data to send out surveys and marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of our surveys or marketing campaigns, please click here to unsubscribe.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

You play a significant role in protecting your information. You are ultimately responsible for maintaining the secrecy of and protecting the security of your username and password. You are responsible for any transaction made using your username and password. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.

If you need to communicate with us regarding your credit card or other payment information, please contact us at the address or email address above.
