Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy: Last updated February 5, 2018

Thank you for visiting the website of Root Tax, (the “Website”). When we use the terms “we”, “us” or “our” in this Privacy Policy, we mean our company, Root Tax. Your privacy is important to us and we are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide to us through our Website. This Privacy Policy explains what information we may collect through our Website, how we may use that information, and under what circumstances we may disclose that information to others. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through our Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

We may collect two types of information from and about you: (a) information that you voluntarily provide us that personally identifies you and (b) information that does not personally identify you that we automatically collect when you visit our Website or that you provide us.
We only collect personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, phone number, e-mail address, and physical address, to the extent you voluntarily provide it, by entering information in forms or requesting information on the Website. If you do not wish to share this information with us, you may choose not to provide it.

The data that we regularly collect about visitors to the Website (e.g., IP address, browser type, pages accessed, duration of visit, etc.) does not necessarily enable us to personally identify you, and it is not our intention to do so. In order to collect these data, we may utilize automated tools and files such as “cookies.” These automated tools and files may reside on our servers or on your computer or device. If you are concerned about the storage and use of cookies, you may be able to direct your internet browser to notify you and seek approval whenever a cookie is being sent to your hard drive. You also may delete a cookie manually from your hard drive through your internet browser or other programs. Please note, however, that some parts of our Website will not function properly or be available to you if you refuse to accept a cookie or choose to disable the acceptance of cookies.

To the extent you provide it to us, we use your personally identifiable information primarily to enhance your use of the Website, to respond to your requests for information about our services, and in other ways related to the circumstances under which you provided the information to us. We may also use that information to later contact you for a variety of reasons, such as customer service, offering of programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you, or to communicate with you about content or other information you have posted or shared with us via our Website. We use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect in a variety of ways, including to administer the Website, help us analyze site traffic, understand customer needs and trends, carry out targeted promotional activities, improve the quality of the pages that make up our Website, gather broad demographic information, and to improve our Website and our services. We may use your non-personal information by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others. We may share your non-personal information with our affiliated companies and third parties to achieve these objectives and others. Aggregated information is anonymous information that does not personally identify you.

Our Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). The features of Google Analytics Advertising we have implemented include remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, and integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data for advertising purposes. Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use that information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may use the data collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. Google also may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, as noted above, if you do that you may not be able to use the full functionality of this Website. You may also prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics by downloading and installing an add-on for your web browser, available here: Otherwise, by using this Website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. You may view Google’s privacy policy on Google’s website.

We may disclose your personally identifiable information as we believe reasonably necessary to comply with laws, regulations, or demands of governmental authorities, or to prevent harm to yourself or others. In addition, we may share your personally identifiable information with third parties we have engaged to help us provide and maintain the Website or to perform marketing, business, or other services for us, or third parties we have engaged to provide our services. For example, we may engage subcontractors to perform portions of the services we provide and we may provide those subcontractors with your personally identifiable information to the extent necessary to enable them to perform those services. In those cases, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent such third parties from disclosing your personally identifiable information, except for the purpose of providing the services in question. Finally, we may transfer your personally identifiable information as part of the assets of our company if our company is, or parts of our business are, sold to, merged with or acquired by, a third party.

Residents of the State of California, under certain provisions of the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed certain personally identifiable information as defined under California law during the preceding year for third party direct marketing purposes. You are limited to one request per calendar year. Should you make a request, in your request, please attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. You may request the information from us in writing at:, with the subject heading “California Privacy Rights.”

We may offer blogs, message boards, bulletin boards, or similar public forums where you and other users of our Website can communicate. The protections described in this Privacy Policy do not apply when you provide information (including personal information) in connection with your use of these public forums. We may use personally identifiable and non-personal information about you to identify you with a posting in a public forum. Any information you share in a public forum is public information and may be seen or collected by anyone, including third parties that do not adhere to our Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for events arising from the distribution of any information you choose to publicly post or share through our Website.

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information relating to children. The features, programs, promotions, services and other aspects of our Website requiring the submission of personally identifiable information are not intended for anyone under 18 years of age. In the event we learn we have collected personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 years of age without prior parental consent, we will take steps to promptly delete such information. By providing your personal information to us, through the Website, you represent that you are 13 years of age or older.

When you submit information to us through our Website, you should be aware that your information is transmitted across the Internet and that no method of transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. We have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. In the unfortunate event that your “personally identifiable information” (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by e-mail (at our sole and absolute discretion) to the last e-mail address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.

For your convenience, we may provide links to certain third party websites or referrals to certain third parties’ products or services. If you choose to visit a third party’s website or use its products or services, please be aware that the third party’s privacy policy, and not this Privacy Policy, will govern your activities and any information you disclose while interacting with the third party.

The Website is hosted in the United States. If you are visiting from the European Union (EU) or other regions, please note that United States data protection laws may differ from the laws of your jurisdiction, and by submitting personal data via the Website you are agreeing to the use of your personal data for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, and consenting to the transfer of your personal data to the United States.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time, and will post any revisions on the Website. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Your continued use of the Website will be subject to the then-current privacy policy.
