WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED ON THIS SITE AND HOW IS IT USED?

When you access and use this Site, there are three ways we may collect information about you:

Information You Knowingly and Voluntarily Provide. 
DECK GUARDIAN collects the personal information you knowingly and voluntarily provide when you use this Site, for example, the information you provide when you request an appointment, request literature or services, or e-mail us with questions or feedback. 
DECK GUARDIAN uses the personal information you volunteer through this Site to provide the information and services you request and for any other purpose we identify to you in a specific Privacy Notice. For example, we use the information you provide when you request an appointment to make arrangements for a local DECK GUARDIAN expert to contact you to discuss your project. The information you provide about yourself (for example, whether you are a homeowner or a builder) and your project helps us determine how to direct your inquiry. As another example, we use the information you provide when you request literature to send you information about the products that interest you. 
When we collect your contact information, we may ask you if you would like to receive news and special offers from us. If you indicate that you would like to receive our mailings, we will add your contact information to our mailing lists and, from time to time, we will send you newsletters or updates, special offers, or other information about programs, services and products we believe would be of interest to you. In addition, if we provide promotional information or materials to you by email, we will include a link to our “opt-out” page in every email. 
Finally, we may remove the information that identifies specific individuals and study the balance of the information we collect through this Site to improve our programs and services, to improve the content, functionality, navigation and usability of this Site, to better understand the needs and interests of our customers and potential customers, and to better market our programs, services and products.

Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser.
DECK GUARDIAN collects information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser. This information typically includes the IP address of your Internet service provider, the name of your operating system (such as Unix, Windows® or Mac OS®), the name and version of your browser (such as Google Chrome®, Safari® or Internet Explorer®), the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. The information we receive depends on the settings on your web browser. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings.
The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally, and we do not normally link this information to any other information that would permit us to identify you. Generally, we use this information to create statistics that help us improve our sites and make them more compatible with the technology used by our visitors. However, we may review our server logs for security purposes, for example, to detect intrusions into our network. The possibility therefore exists that, in the event of criminal malfeasance, we might share our server logs, which contain visitors IP addresses, with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.

Information Collected By Placing a “Cookie” On Your Computer.
DECK GUARDIAN uses “cookies” to “tag” your computer when you visit our Site. A cookie is a small text file our Web server offers your browser. Our cookies contain a randomly generated, unique identification number that lets us identify your computer each time your visit our Site. 
We use these cookies to collect statistical information about the ways visitors use our site – which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. We analyze this information (known as “clickstream data”) in statistical form to better understand our visitors’ interests and needs and to improve the content and functionality of our sites. 
Our web server recognizes the cookies on your hard drive each time you visit our Site. Because we recognize your computer, we do not count it twice. Also, we can use the number assigned to your computer to link the clickstream data we collect each time you visit our Site. This technology helps us determine how many visitors are using our site, how often they return, and how their use of our site may vary over time.
These cookies do not identify you personally and we do not link “clickstream data” with any information that identifies you personally.

You may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave our Site. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit this Site, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of the Site if your browser rejects our cookies.

If your personal information is transferred to another company that has acquired DECK GUARDIAN, one of its affiliates, one of its distributors, or one their databases, for example, as the result of a sale, merger or reorganization, the acquiring company’s use of your personal information will still be subject to this privacy policy and the privacy preferences you’ve expressed to us.

M.Lewis from Fleminton, NJ

S.Smith from Chester Township, NJ

“I’m completely impressed. I have dealt with my share of contractors as I have been updating my home for several years. Deck Guardian gets the gold medal. Deck Guardian restored my 10 year old deck & fence to a brand new condition. I am amazed!”

P.Tang from Westfield, NJ

“Deck Guardian Team did a good and pleasant job to give us a professional service and a beautiful new deck, without replacing it. We love the color and the way it feels like. Highly recommended!”

Kathryn Barchi from Piscataway, NJ

“My husband and I had recently moved into a new home and quite quickly we learned of so many things that both us and the home inspector missed prior to the purchase; the deck being one huge item. We quite desperately wanted to use our deck and know that it was safe for us, our kids, our pups, and our guests, which in the original state, was definitely not the case. Deck Guardian to the rescue! The Deck Guardian team, from the free estimate to the point of project close, were quite wonderful to work with entirely. They even pointed out additional things we had missed with regards to the safety of our deck. Of course, best of all, the Deck Guardian team was able to work within our budget, while giving us back our deck with a new lease on life. Deck Guardian far exceeded our expectations and for that, my husband and I can not thank them enough!!!”

Jessica Ravitz from Skillman, NJ

“Deck Guardian completed an amazing deck replacement project for us in less than 2 weeks after we signed our contract. Not only did they provide an extremely competitive price, we got a beautiful deck that so greatly exceeded our expectations! Everyone at Deck Guardian is wonderful – from the estimator, the crew and the administrative staff – very friendly, professional, meticulous and hard working. We are so pleased and give the highest recommendation!!! Thank you Deck Guardian!”

Paul Cichello from Bridgewater, NJ

“I contacted Deck Guardian and was given an estimate the very next day. The representative was very knowledgeable and fair. The workers were polite and professional. We are satisfied with our new deck and would recommend Deck Guardian to anyone who wants quality work.”
