Your information is never shared with a third party without your consent
To be completely clear - your information stays within Homer until you say otherwise. No 3rd party can see anything that is uploaded onto your Homer account, unless you have given your consent. (See below)
Sometimes you WANT to share your information with others
There are lots of examples of times you would want to share your information in Homer:
- You share your home with a partner/ family member/ other and want to give access to your home
- You want to report an error, respond to an offer from Homer or one of our partners, or share your information in other ways with someone who may need to know your address, model number or series number etc. If this information is already stored in Homer it can be very practical to share it directly from Homer.
- You want Homer to find more information about an appliance, machine or item. Then Homer need access to information on this particular item in order to know what brand and model to search for.
I have received targeted content in the app from a company in Homer - what information have they received?
As a way of earning money, we have a collaboration with leading brands within insurance, appliances and service providers. They want to show relevant and helpful content for you as a homeowner.
Your personal information is not shared with a third party in this case either. Homer can show specific information to users based on choices such as language, postal code, home type and brands - but that occurs internally and the third party organisations do NOT have access to your information.
