Information Obtained to Compile Level 1 WISE Certified Technician Directory

In order to assist Level 1 WISE Certified Technicians in marketing their services online, and to assist consumers in locating Level 1 WISE Certified Technicians in geographic areas relevant to them, we collect and compile information about Level 1 WISE Certified Technician and publish it online in the form of a directory listing for each Level 1 WISE Certified Technician as part of our WISE Technician Directory.

Information Security and Data Retention

We have technical, physical, and administrative safeguards in place to help protect against unauthorized access to, use, and disclosure of the information that we collect or store, including your contact and payment information.  Our employees are trained on the importance of protecting privacy.  Under our practices and policies, access to sensitive information that could be used to identify you as an individual is authorized only for those who have a business need for such access, and sensitive information is retained only as long as necessary for business, accounting, tax, or legal purposes. 


Although we work hard to protect personal information that we collect and store, no program is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that the safeguards we have in place will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your personal information.  If you become aware of a security issue, please contact us at  We will work with you to address any problems.

Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the young (i.e., individuals under the age of 13) is especially important. For that reason, we never knowingly collect personally identifying information from anyone under the age of 13 and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. If a child has provided us with personal information, we ask that a parent or guardian of the child contact us at  if they would like the information submitted by a child deleted from our database.
