1. What information do you collect, how is it collected and how do you use it?
Anyone can visit our site free of charge. You are welcome to browse our ratings lists and read reviews without ever giving us your individual personal information. But we do need to gather some information about users who wish to submit ratings and reviews. We collect information in two ways: directly from you and through the use of "cookies". Third party services like Google AdSense may also collect information about you through cookies to display behavioral ads.
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, and site functionality.
If you want to review a moving company, we will ask you to provide some personal information. The information we require is very basic: your e-mail address and name. One of the reasons we ask for your e-mail address is so that we can communicate with you and send you a validation email.
When the quick moving quote form or the free moving calculator form or the cost calculator is filled, RemovalReviews collects information about your name, email address, phone number, size of your household and your current and future (after the move) locations. This information is forwarded/sold by RemovalReviews to third party moving companies and moving brokers, so they can provide estimate services to the consumers. In some cases these third party moving companies and moving brokers may forward/re-sell this information to other third party moving companies with the same purpose (providing moving estimate services to the consumers).

In certain situations, World Media Group, LLC may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities or law enforcement requirements.
We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings, or similar legal process; when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
If World Media Group, LLC is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
2. How is my privacy protected?
One of the great features of RemovalReviews is that we allow you, as a user, to leave comments messages and written reviews, not just ratings, so you can explain your opinions in some detail. Please remember that when you post your comments they are publicly available, so you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose anything personal about yourself. This includes your e-mail address. Many of our users like to leave their e-mail addresses with their reviews message. That way others can e-mail them if they want to discuss the moving company or the specific move. You should realize that you are not obligated to attach your email address. To request removal of your personal information from a review, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why. Alternatively, if you used a third party application to post such information, you can remove it, by either logging into the said application and removing the information or by contacting the appropriate third party application.
When you respond to a moving review (send a message to the reviewer), the information you enter is sent to the reviewer. We cannot guarantee how the reviewer will handle this information.
If you are a moving company (or you represent a moving company) and you apply for an account or update your moving company account information, the information you enter is stored behind a password and can be accessed by you and the administrators of this website. After logging into the website, you can control what information to display to the public.
California has passed legislation requiring certain specific disclosures be made available to California residents who use the Internet and provide information that may be used for marketing purposes. That legislation requires any business that discloses a customer's personal information (as defined by the act) to any third party for direct marketing purposes to provide the customer a method for obtaining the names, addresses and certain other specified details of anyone who might have received that personal information. If you are a California resident you may request this information from RemovalReviews or any of its affiliates by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. RemovalReviews.com is not obligated to respond to more than two such request from you per calendar year.
California residents have the right to request that RemovalReviews, as a business that collects personal information about the consumer, to disclose to the consumer the following:
- The categories of personal information it has collected about that consumer.
- The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
- The categories of third parties with whom the business shares personal information.
- The specific pieces of personal information it has collected about that consumer.
California residents have the right, at any time, to direct RemovalReviews not to sell the consumer's personal information. This right may be referred to as the right to opt-out and can be executed from the following Do Not Sell My Personal Information page on the website.
RemovalReviews will not sell the personal information of consumers if the business has actual knowledge that the consumer is less than 16 years of age, unless the consumer, in the case of consumers between 13 and 16 years of age, or the consumer's parent or guardian, in the case of consumers who are less than 13 years of age, has affirmatively authorized the sale of the consumer's personal information.

4. What kind of security measures do you take?
6. How can I change or delete my personal information?
Upon request World Media Group, LLC will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, amend, delete/remove, ask to have it removed from a public forum, directory or testimonial on our site or deactivate it by making the change on our member information page, by emailing our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting us by postal mail at the contact information listed below. We will respond to your request to access within a reasonable timeframe. The information entered in the free moving quote form or the free moving calculator form or the cost calculator form cannot be modified because it is already submitted to the moving companies that prepare the moving quotes, moving estimates and the approximate moving cost calculations. The personal information entered in the free moving quote form or the free moving calculator form or the cost calculator form is used by the moving companies to contact you with the results of the moving estimate. We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you.
