Information We Collect
We collect and store information that you voluntarily provide to us as well as data related to your Site visit and usage. In some areas of the Site, we request or may request that you provide personally identifiable information, including your name, address, email address, telephone number, username, birth date, and other information from which your identity is or may be discernible. We collect personally identifiable information from our users (including, but not limited to, name, address and phone number) at several different points on the Site. We will also allow you the opportunity to provide descriptive, behavioral, preferential, and/or lifestyle and demographic information about yourself for purposes of facilitating, in the case of lessors or sellers, the advertisement of services or products made available by you or your affiliated entities and listings generated in connection therewith or, in the case of lessees or buyers, your research of properties advertised on the Site (in each case, as applicable, the “Services”), but it is solely up to you whether you furnish such information. If you do provide such information, you are thereby consenting to the use of that information in accordance with the policies and practices described in this Policy. This information may be stored on our servers, and on the servers of third party service providers.
If you register to place listings for the review of a business to the Site, we may require additional information in connection with the payment of applicable subscription fees. Although your credit card information is requested in connection with this process, we do not store any credit card information in our database. This information is shared with trusted third party service providers only for the purposes of processing payment, as described below in the section titled “Disclosure of Information”. In addition, please see our Listing Policy here, the terms of which are incorporated herein, for more information regarding such additional information and the processing of payments.
How We Use Information
We use collected information to make available and to improve our high standard of reliable services. We use such information to:
- respond to inquiries or service requests and monitor such responses;
- provide information about and market our products or services;
- resolve problems; and
- manage the Site and assess its usage and usage of the Services.
Disclosure of Information
We do not sell or rent personally identifiable information to third parties who are not affiliates of the Company. We may disclose personally identifiable information to appropriate affiliates of the Company, including strategic alliance affiliates and third party service providers, to respond to a request for service or to provide information about available products or services. We are not limited in our use of non-personal information that does not permit direct association with any specific individual, or non-identifiable aggregate information about our users (such as the number of users of our Services, the geographic distribution of our users, the amount of information located and/or removed, etc.).
We disclose information in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, levy, attachment, order of a court-appointed receiver or other comparable legal process, including subpoenas from private parties in a civil action. If the subpoena seeks information about an identified user or limited group of users, we’ll make reasonable business efforts to contact the user(s) before providing information to the party that requests it. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to contact the user(s) in all cases, whether because of a time limit, court order, inability to effectively contact a user, or for any other reason.
We may disclose information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).
We share information with companies that provide public relations and marketing services for us. Such information will only be shared by us to customize, measure and improve our products, Services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes. These third parties are obligated to protect your information and are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
As with any other business, it is possible that in the future we could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to the information maintained by us, including customer account information, but would continue to be bound by this Policy unless and until it is amended.
We share your information with our parent, subsidiaries and joint ventures to help coordinate the Services we provide to you, enforce our terms and conditions, and promote trust and safety.
We may share aggregate (non-personally identifiable) information with certain third parties such as advertisers, national industry organizations, and prospective affiliates. In addition, we reserve the right to disclose aggregate information and personally identifiable information to third parties as required or permitted by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights.
