SITES COVERED

This Privacy Policy applies to the Website, and does not apply to any linked sites owned, operated or otherwise maintained by any third party. While we encourage our business partners to adopt privacy policies that build users' trust and confidence, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any third party website.

COLLECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

Demographic Information

We do not require visitors to provide personally identifiable information to visit the Website. However, we do collect usage data, ZIP codes and other demographic information on all users, but it is not personally identifiable except for Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of users.

Personally Identifiable Information

While some sections of the Website are available to any visitor, certain activities do require registration, such as viewing property contact information or receiving rewards. To become a registered user, you must provide certain personal information, which will be apparent from the forms we ask you to complete. You must be 18 years of age or older to register and use certain interactive portions of our Website and agree to the then-current Terms of Use. When joining our Website as a registered user, request information, or use one of our other interactive services, we may request, collect, and store specific information about you, including:

contact information such as your name, age, address, e-mail address, and phone number;
your school information and school year;
financial information such as credit card information or bank account numbers;
move-in date, lease terms, lease parties and other transactional information; and
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 addresses and standard web log information.

If necessary, we may occasionally obtain information about you from third parties to supplement the information you supplied to us. For example, if you incur a debt to us, 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.

Cookies and IP Addresses

We may place "cookies" on your computer when you visit our Website. Cookies are small text files placed on your browser to identify your computer and store your preferences. While not all of the information that we collect from users is personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that users provide us through our Website. We currently use third party ad networks to serve ads on our Website. The cookies received with banner ads served by these networks are used to collect and build anonymous behavioral profiles by these companies to deliver targeted ads and tracking referrals. You may disable cookies or otherwise manage them through tools provided with your browser software and with third-party software packages. If you turn off cookies, many of the Website features will not work as well or at all.

Our Website compiles IP addresses, the location of your computer on the Internet, for administrative and analytical purposes. In cases of suspected abuse or service problems, we may use an IP address in conjunction with other personally identifiable information to enforce our terms of service and to protect or troubleshoot the services, the Website, its users or others who may be affected.

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with smooth, efficient, and customized services. We may use your personal information to provide the services and customer support you request, as well as communicate with service providers, renters, lessors, and roommates. We may also use such information to offer and collect rewards, troubleshoot problems, and measure customer interest in our services. The information we collect can also be used to protect you by preventing error, fraud and other potentially prohibited or illegal activity. We may also send messages that contain promotional material or other content from our Website or our partners. In the case of these messages, we are not sharing your personally identifiable information with third parties, nor will we continue to send you promotional messages if you ask us not to.

We may perform statistical analyses of user behavior in order to measure interest in the various areas of our Website, for development purposes, and to inform advertisers and partners about consumers who click on their advertising or other messages. The information you provide may be used to compile aggregate data that is not personally identifiable and may be used internally or shared with third parties. In these analyses, we will disclose information to third parties only in aggregate form, except as specified in this Privacy Policy.

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties as is necessary for third parties to provide information or perform services specifically requested by you or to perform the services by us. After information is provided to such third parties, we do not and cannot control their subsequent use or disclosure of information. We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for marketing purposes. Although we will notify all third-party direct marketers that the information provided to them is confidential, we do not and cannot control the use or disclosure of information by such marketers after the information is provided to them.

In some cases, we may work with third parties that do analysis and development on our behalf. We may provide your personally identifiable information to service providers who help with our business operations, such as fraud investigations, bill collection, invoicing, and affiliate and rewards programs.

We may share your personal information with law enforcement offices, third-party rights owners or others in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy; respond to claims that an advertisement, posting or other content violates the rights of a third party; or protect the rights, property or personal safety of our users or the general public. We may also disclose your 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. Your personal information may be shared with another business entity should we (or our assets) plan to merge with, or be acquired by that business entity. Should such a transaction occur, that other business entity (or the new combined entity) will be required to follow this Privacy Policy with respect to your personal information.

CHOICE/OPT-OUT

Our Website 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 after setting up an account. To remove your contact information from all of our mailing lists, simply edit your email preferences.

SECURITY

Your personal information is one of our most valuable assets. It is kept physically secure and is accessible only to authorized personnel as needed to perform operations governed by this Privacy Policy on servers based in The United States. In addition, when we collect credit card or other highly sensitive information from you, such as a Social Security number, we use industry standard encryption system to ensure your privacy. However, 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.

ACCESSING, REVIEWING, AND CHANGING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

You can see, review and change most of your personal information by logging into the Website and editing your account profile. Generally, we will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts in order to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms of Use of the Website, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.

UPDATES

We reserve the right to make changes to the Privacy Policy from time to time for any reason. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon posting, unless otherwise indicated. We have no duty or obligation to inform prior visitors that changes have been made, regardless of the scope and importance of the changes. We encourage you to periodically check back and review this Privacy Policy so that you always will know what information we collect, how we use it, and to whom we disclose it. Your continued use of the Website after such changes are posted will be deemed to constitute your acceptance of such changes notwithstanding your opportunity to discontinue using our services.
