BlueTarp understands that confidentiality of information is critical to our purchase account Customers and Dealers. We have created this Security Statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to keeping information about our Customers and Dealers confidential. For purposes of this Security Statement, any references to BlueTarp (or "we," "us" or "our") mean both BlueTarp Financial, Inc., and the issuer of BlueTarp accounts and "you," or "your" refer to BlueTarp account holders or BlueTarp Dealers as applicable.

BlueTarp Financial primarily collects information to process BlueTarp transactions and service your business management needs. We also collect information to notify you of offers that may be of interest. In addition, BlueTarp compiles information in the aggregate to share with third parties, such as distributors and manufacturers.

We firmly believe that it's your right to know that your information is secure, what information we collect, how we use it, and what options are available to you with regards to information sharing. This Security Statement provides details about Internet security, information collection and use, and how to contact us.

Security

BlueTarp Financial uses the most widely accepted, commercially available measures to protect the security of all information and, where possible, conforms to industry best practices. To assure that your privacy is respected, we protect our Web site by:

Because email is not guaranteed to be secure, you should not provide us with confidential information, such as your password, through email. Also, if we must communicate confidential information, we may choose to call you or request via email that you contact us by phone.

You also play an important role in maintaining security of information while using the Internet. You should ensure that you are familiar and comfortable with the security level of your browser and watch for security alerts affecting the software on your computer or the browser you are using.

Dealer Data Transmission Security

BlueTarp data transmission between a Dealer and our transaction processing system is conducted in a manner that ensures the integrity and the confidentiality of your business information. We apply accepted e-commerce techniques to support the exchange of transaction information. The connection between your site and our data collection server is conducted over an https/secure link using session-wide strong encryption.

BlueTarp will only collect information that is customarily printed on the contractor's invoice. There is no internally sensitive information required to support the requirements of the BlueTarp program. To further ensure that the information transmitted to BlueTarp is acceptable to you, we will ask you to approve all information that we are collecting from your system prior to initiating the first data transmission. Should there be information included in the transmission data set that you feel is sensitive, it can be eliminated from the report at that time.

Other Third Party Information Sharing

It is our policy to use information in a way that will be helpful to you. BlueTarp will not share information we collect in a way that will intentionally put you at a competitive disadvantage or harm your business relationships. We may from time to time share information we collect with our business partners, manufacturers, distributors, market analysts, advertisers and other third parties as described below.

Aggregated Information: We may share aggregated information about our Customers and Dealers and BlueTarp transactions with manufacturers, distributors, market analysts, advertisers, Business Partners, sponsors, our affiliates, and any other third parties. Aggregated information will not be identified with any particular Customer or Dealer.

Any such offers are developed and managed under strict conditions designed to safeguard the security and privacy of your information and will provide you with a means to "opt out" of future offers.

Opting Out

You may choose to opt out of receiving some or all communications from us regarding third-party companies concerning their products or services. If you would like to stop such information sharing at any time and for any reason, you may "opt out" by sending written notice to BlueTarp.

If you make a purchase of goods or services from a third party listed on or linked to the Web site, any information that you give in connection with such purchase (such as a purchase card number and contact information) will be provided to such third party.

For information that remains in dispute, we will keep a record of your opinion.

Reviewing, Editing, or Downloading Online Information

You may edit transaction information on your Web site account for your specific job costing and accounting purposes. User-edited information will not, however, be reflected on your printed monthly billing statement, as BlueTarp does not print most online edits as a part of its billing process.

Changes

We may change our policies (including this Security Statement) at any time. If we decide to change this Security Statement, we will post the changes to this page so that you may be aware of our actions. If you do not agree to any such change, you must tell us and remove any information from your account on our Web site, and we will terminate our relationship as provided in our BlueTarp Account Agreement or Dealer BlueTarp Agreement (as applicable).
