Your privacy is very important to us. At Florida Custom Home Watch we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Patco Distributors, Inc. (“Patco”) operates this website. It is Patco’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating this website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Patco collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Patco’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Patco’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Patco may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Patco also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. Patco only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Patco’s website may choose to interact with Patco in ways that require Patco to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Patco gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who request a quote to provide their name, email address, and phone number. Patco collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Patco. Patco does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Patco may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Patco may monitor the most popular pages on the site. Patco may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Patco does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Patco discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Patco’s behalf or to provide services available at Patco’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Patco’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Patco will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Patco discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Patco believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Patco, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of this Patco website and have supplied your email address, Patco may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Patco and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Patco takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Patco uses cookies to help Patco identify and track visitors, their usage of this Patco website, and their website access preferences. Patco visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Patco’s website, with the drawback that certain features of Patco’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Patco or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Patco goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of Patco may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Patco may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at Patco’s sole discretion. Patco encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
