Information Collection, Use, and Tracking
We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you choose to provide that information to us. Most areas of the Service are accessible without registration or the need to disclose any personally identifiable information. However, Owners have the option to register with the Service, and purchase a subscription in order to advertise properties on the Service. In order to register as an Owner and complete the subscription process, you will be required to provide your name, address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information. All personal financial information you provide to us in order for us to complete the subscription process will be securely collected and provided to a third party vendor, who will process payments and complete transactions.
Owners will be required to create a public profile, which will include your name and telephone number, and may include other optional information. Please be aware that information in your public profile may be viewed by the general public.
Apartment Advisor does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from, or allow registration by, persons under 18 years old. If you are under 18 years of age, you are not authorized to create an account on the Service, but you may utilize those portions of the Service that do not require the collection of personally identifiable information.
Apartment Advisor gives you the opportunity to subscribe to newsletters by providing us with your email address. We will send each newsletter to the email address you have provided. If you later decide you no longer wish to receive these newsletters, you may opt-out as instructed in each email.
If you forget your account login information, you may request that we send it to the email address associated with your account. Please take steps to keep your account information secure to prevent unauthorized access.
California Do Not Track Notice
Apartment Advisor does not track its users over time and across third party websites, and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track signals sent by your browser or mobile application. Apartment Advisor does not authorize the collection by third parties of personally identifiable information from Apartment Advisor users.
We understand how highly our users value the privacy and security of their personally identifiable information. We will disclose information collected from and about you only as follows: (1) to our related companies, service providers, and Affiliates (as defined below), to enable them to fulfill a product or service request or to perform a business, professional or technical support function for us; (2) as necessary if we believe that there has been a violation of our Terms of Service or of our rights or the rights of any third party; and (3) to respond to judicial process and provide information to law enforcement agencies or in connection with an investigation on matters related to public safety, as permitted by law, or otherwise as required by law.
Disclosure to Affiliates
Apartment Advisor uses third party marketers ("Affiliates") to assist in marketing and promoting the Service and the advertised properties. In connection with these efforts, we share with our Affiliates certain information about Owners and their advertised properties, including text, photographs, and the Owner’s public profile. We do not disclose any personal financial information to Affiliates, nor do Affiliates collect any personal financial information.
Please keep in mind that any information you choose to include in your public profile and advertisements will be visible to the general public and may be collected and used by others. Consequently, we urge you to be cautious in deciding what and how much information you choose to disclose.
Links To Third Party Sites
The Service may contain links to third party websites. These sites may have their own terms of service and privacy policies which do not apply to Apartment Advisor or the Service.
We employ encryption and other security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We take commercially reasonable steps to protect this information by using secure-socket-layer ("SSL") to protect the transmission of such information. However, please be advised that while we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent unauthorized access from occurring. Please take steps to maintain the security of your account information.
