The Property whose website you have visited respects the privacy of your information, and we appreciate that you trust us to use and share information about you in a careful and sensible manner.  This notice describes our privacy policy.  By visiting this website, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy notice.

Information that We Collect

The information that we learn from and about you helps us personalize and improve your experience and improve the rentals, products, and services that we (or a third-party with whom we have a relationship) provide you.  Although most personal information is collected by third-party websites that are beyond our control, you may provide personal information to us (which we may collect and save) when you fill out a form on our website or communicate with us.  Primarily, that information includes IP addresses, browsers, information captured in cookies, and pages viewed, but it could also include, among other things, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, social security number, home demographics, and pet ownership.   

The information that we collect may fall into the following categories:

  • Information that you provide to us: We collect and save information that you enter on our website or on a third-party website with whom we have a relationship or that you provide to us in another way.  We use the information that you provide for purposes such as responding to your requests and inquiries; customizing rental, product, or services offerings; improving the Property and other properties we own, and communicating with you.  For example, we collect and save information when you respond to a survey or marketing communication sent to you by a third-party vendor with whom we have a relationship.
  • Automatic information: We collect and save information when you interact with us.  For example, we use “cookies,” which are discussed in more detail below.
  • Mobile: If you use an app created by the Property or a third-party with whom we have a relationship, we may collect and save information about your location and your mobile device.  This information may be used for a variety of purposes, including providing you with location-based services, advertising, search results, rentals, and other personalized content.  Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services.
  • Information that we observe: We might collect and save information about, among other things, your preferences, rental history, or payment history.
  • Information from other sources: We might collect and save information about you from other sources.

Using, Sharing, or Disclosing Information

We use personal information to provide you with information on the rentals, products, and services in which you have expressed an interest and on other rentals, products or services in which we believe you may have an interest.  We use personal information for a variety of purposes, including to:

  • Deliver information to you regarding rentals, products, or services.

We generally do not disclose your personal information except in the following situations:

  • Third Parties with whom we have a relationship: We work closely with third-party vendors to provide you rentals, products, and services that are important to your experience with the Property.  To provide those rentals, products, and services, those third parties have access to personal information.  Those third parties are prohibited from using your personal information for other purposes.
  • Affiliates: We may share your personal information with an affiliate.
  • Business transfers or investments: We may sell or buy businesses or assets.  Customer information is typically one of the assets being transferred.  We also may share your personal information with a potential investor under an agreement which contains reasonable confidentiality requirements.
  • Protection of the Property and others: We share account and other personal information when we believe sharing is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our terms of use and other terms and agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Property, our users, or others.  For example, the Property may share information (a) with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction; (b) to help the Property defend against claims and/or exercise a legal right or remedy that the Property may have; or (c) to respond to lawful requests by public authorities.
  • Consent: The Property may also share personal information with your consent.

Third-Party Links

We may include or offer products or services of third-party vendors or we may utilize products or services of third-party vendors in our providing of rentals, products, and services to you.  Sometimes, those products or services are obtained from a third-party’s website, in which case, the third-party websites will have separate and independent privacy policies.  We are not responsible for those third-party websites, the third party’s privacy policies, or the actions of those third parties.
