This web site is a Portal to give legal guidance to various categories of persons, businesses etc. The advertisements and related services posted on this web site are procured and provided by this web site and its subsidiaries and affiliates.
Collection: While you can browse some sections of the website without being a registered user, certain activities (such as viewing property information and viewing your transactions, property agreements etc) do require registration. Once you give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us. In most cases, the information we hold about you is collected on this web site website, but we may also collect information from private-label, co-branded and affiliate websites. Depending on the services used, we may collect and store the following personal information:
a. contact information such as name, email address, address and telephone number;
b. move-in date and demographic information such as gender, age, marital status, occupation, and other personal and lifestyle information (for example, if you respond to an optional survey request or use our roommate service);
c. financial information such as credit card or bank account numbers;
d. guest card information, lease terms, lease parties and other transactional information; and
e. Information based on your activities on the website, such as search information, computer sign-on data, statistics on page views, traffic to, from and within the website, ad data, and IP address and standard web log information.
f. We may occasionally obtain supplemental information about you from third parties. For example, if you incur a debt to this web site, we may conduct a credit check by obtaining additional information about you from a credit bureau, as permitted by law. As another example, if the information you provide cannot be verified, we may ask you to send us additional information (such as your driver’s license, credit card statement, and/or a recent utility bill or other information confirming your address) or to answer additional questions online to help verify your identity.
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. We may use your personal information to:
a. Provide the services and customer support you request, including confirming emails related to the website services, reminders and transactions.
b. Provide the ability to communicate with all categories of people.
c. Resolve disputes, collect fees and troubleshoot problems.
d. Customize your experience and otherwise measure and improve our services and the website’s content and layout.
e. Tell you about targeted marketing, service updates, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences. (If we use your personal information to market to you, you will be able to opt-out of such uses; see “Choice/Opt-Out” below.)
f. Compare information for accuracy and verify it with third parties.
g. Measure consumer interest in our products and services.
h. Help promote a safe service and detect and prevent error, fraud and other potentially prohibited or illegal activity.
i. Enforce our agreements, terms, condition, and policies.
j. As otherwise described to you at the time of collection.
We may share some or all of your personal information with:
a. Members of our corporate family to provide joint services and help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts. (Our corporate affiliates will market only to users who request their services.)
c. Other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information, or about whom you are explicitly notified and consent when using a specific service. (The information we disclose in this way may be subject to those third parties’ privacy policies.)
d. Service providers under contract who help with our business operations (such as fraud investigations, bill collection, invoicing, affiliate and rewards programs and co-branded credit cards).
We may also disclose personal information if permitted to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to respond to subpoenas, court orders or other legal process.
Our website links to other websites that may collect personal information about you. This web site is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those linked websites.
Cookies: We or our service providers may place cookies or web beacons on your computer when you visit portions of our website. We use permanent cookies to provide personalized features, such as automatically logging you into your personalized home page. We use session cookies, which are deleted when you log out of this web site or browse to a different website, to monitor and improve the functionality and usability of our website. You can block our cookies by changing the settings on your browser (contact your ISP for help), but doing so may prevent us from delivering certain services to you.
Choice/Opt-Out: This web site provides all users with the opportunity to opt out of receiving non-essential (promotional, marketing-related) communications from us on behalf of our partners, and from us in general, after setting up an account.
Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Personal Information:
Account Protection: Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not disclose your password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify this web site and change your password.
Security: Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the website. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
