The Information We Collect
In the course of operating the Platform, Quote Nerds will collect (and/or receive) the following types of information.
1. Personal Information
When you sign up to become a User, you will be required to provide us with personal information about yourself, such as your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number.

All information we collect and/or receive under this section is collectively called “Personal Information.”
2. Billing Information
When Users register with us, they will be required to provide certain information in addition to the Personal Information noted above.

Any other Billing Information provided by Users is collected, stored, and processed directly through these third-party vendors, and we do not obtain access to it.
3. Order Information
When you place an Order, you must provide us with certain information about the leads you are seeking to purchase, such as the Lead Provider and the vertical, and we may automatically collect other information relating to each such transaction. Such information is collectively called the “Order Information.”
