Your privacy is important to us. The Pest Control Insulation Privacy Statement explains the personal data Pest Control Insulation, LLC (herein referred to as “PCI”) collects and processes about our clients and use it to provide our services.
PCI offers products and equipment to support programs designed for pest management professional and insulation contractors nationwide. These products are for use in a home to provide comfort from pests which typically invade and provide structural damage to the home as well as protect health risks for the home’s occupants. References to PCI products in this statement include PCI services, websites, apps, servers, devices, and equipment.
PCI is committed to protecting your privacy. The information you share is used to provide better service with PCI. We use it to invoice and bill you and send notices about your account, special promotions, and timely news as well as update you on our products and services. We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to third parties. If you would like to discuss how we use your information, please contact us. This statement applies to all interactions PCI has with you and the PCI products listed below, as well as other PCI products that display in this statement.
PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT
PCI collects data from you, through your interactions with us and through our products. You provide some of this data directly, and we get some of it by collecting data about your interactions, use, and experiences with our products. The data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with PCI and the choices you make, including your privacy settings and the products and features you use. This data may include:

We rely on a variety of legal reasons and permissions (“legal bases”) to process data, including with your consent, a balancing of legitimate interests, necessity to enter into and perform contracts, and compliance with legal obligations, for a variety of purposes described below.
We also obtain data from third parties. We protect data obtained from third parties according to the practices described in this statement, plus any additional restrictions imposed by the source of the data. These third-party sources vary over time and include:
- Data brokers from which we purchase demographic data to supplement the data we collect.
- Services that make user-generated content from their service available to others, such as local business reviews or public social media posts.

You have choices when it comes to the technology you use and the data you share. When we ask you to provide personal data, you can decline. Many of our products require some personal data to provide you with a service. If you choose not to provide data necessary to provide you with a product or feature, you cannot use that product or feature. Likewise, where we need to collect personal data by law or to enter into or carry out a contract with you, and you do not provide the data, we will not be able to enter into the contract; or if this relates to an existing product you’re using, we may have to suspend or cancel it. We will notify you if this is the case at the time. Where providing the data is optional, and you choose not to share personal data, features like personalization that use such data will not work for you.
By using PCI services, you consent to our use of your personal and non-personal data as specified above. PCI reserves the right to change this agreement and the Pest Control Insulation Privacy Statement at any time for any reason, with notification outlined below.

PCI is a distributor of products and equipment manufactured and distributed by third party vendors.

We don’t sell your personal information
COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
Under the Pest Control Insulation Privacy Statement, we will retain your Personal Information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained.
The criteria used to determine our retention periods
- Whether there is a legal or business obligation to which we are subject by certain laws which require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them
- The length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the Site or Offerings to you (i.e., as long as you have an account with us or keep using the Site or Offerings)
- Whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (i.e., applicable statutes of limitations regulatory investigations, or other legal matters).
PCI is committed to taking reasonable steps to ensure the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We have administrative, physical and technical controls to safeguard it; We train our employees on the importance of protecting it. Your credit card security is our highest priority. PCI utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, an advanced encryption technology that protects the information you send us against unauthorized access. This safeguard has helped, in many cases, to make shopping on the Internet significantly safer than using your credit card in a retail store or restaurant.
With a PCI account, you can sign in to PCI platforms. Under the Pest Control Insulation Privacy Statement, personal data associated with your PCI account includes credentials, name and contact data, payment data, device and usage data, and your interests and favorites. Signing in to your PCI commerce account enables personalization and consistent experiences across products and devices, allows you to make payments using payment instruments stored in your E-commerce account, and enables other features.
There are two types of PCI account:
- When you create an account tied to your email address, personal or professional, to obtain discounts on ordering quantities and frequencies or to be assigned a pricing structure based on your organizational relationship as a client, it is called an e-commerce account.
- When you are granted access to resources, videos, downloads, and literature stored on our approved client Member Support Site, it is called a Member Site account. Member Site account usage, login history, and download activity is monitored for evaluation and improvement processes and can be revoked or paused based on inactivity or gaps of three months or more in purchasing behavior. Member Site access is granted to customers of PCI who make regular and specific purchases of TAP® Pest Control Insulation.
Note: If you sign into a service offered by a third party with your PCI account, you will share with that third party the account data required by that service.
