Fixerline Consulting is the sole owner of the information collected on this Site. Fixerline will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this Agreement.

In order to use Fixerline.com, both Members and Experts must first complete a registration form. During registration the Member is requested to furnish contact information, such as name and email address. This information may be used to contact the Member about the services on Fixerline.com in which he or she has expressed interest, and is also used as Member's login information. Member may be asked to provide additional personalized information (such as experience and qualifications, areas of interest, profession, education, etc.) and unique identifiers (such as a screen name), so Fixerline may provide a more personalized experience on the Site. In such case the Member may decide whether he or she wishes to provide such information or not.
The information furnished by the Member during the registration process will be kept in Fixerline's database. Fixerline will use reasonable means to protect the integrity and safety of the database.
