Privacy Policy

Introduction:

CreditMyRent.com is committed to respecting the privacy rights and concerns of all users of CreditMyRent.com’s website where this Privacy Policy is posted (the “Site”) and the services made available by CreditMyRent.com (collectively with the Site, the “Service”). As such, we have established and implemented this Privacy Policy to inform visitors to the Site and users of the Service how we use and protect the information we collect through the Service. By accessing the Site or using any of the Service, you consent to CreditMyRent.com’s collection, use, storage, deletion and disclosure of information relating to you as set forth in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is effective as of the date set forth above and is only applicable to the Service and not to any other website that you may be able to access from the Service which may have its own data collection and use practices and policies.

Policy:

This policy answers the following questions:

  • What information do we collect about you and how do we use it?
  • Will we share your personal information with third parties?
  • What choices do you have about the collection and use of your personal information?
  • What security measures do we take to safeguard your personal information?

Types of Information We Collect

Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you. You do not need to submit personal information to access the Service generally. However, you may be required to submit personal information to access certain aspects of the Service. We may collect non-personal information such as your browser type, when you accessed the Service and from what physical location you accessed the Service. This information may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about users of the Service. We also may use this data to monitor the Service’s performance and to make the Service easier and more convenient to use.

We collect personal information when you purchase services through the Service; create an account; subscribe to our newsletter; participate in registration forms, feedback forms or surveys; receive customer or technical support; or participate in components of the Service through which users may submit content.

To create an account through the Service, we require you to provide (i) if you are a renter, certain personal information about yourself (name, email address, password, phone number, date of birth, social security number, property address and prior property address), personal information of your landlord or property manager (name, phone number and address), rental information (rent amount and payment dates) and any information necessary for us to verify and validate the information with your landlord or property manager and (ii) if you are a landlord or property manager, your personal information and personal information of your tenants, and rental information. Some of the personal information we collect when you register, like your social security number, is required by the credit bureau to verify your identity. Your contact information will only be made available to other users as authorized by you in connection with the property address you submit.

When purchasing services through the Service, you will also be required to provide a credit card number, billing address, phone number or other payment information. No information of this type will be collected unless you have registered for aspects of the Service that require it.

By submitting personal information through the Site, you authorize CreditMyRent.com to share this personal information for the purposes identified herein and on the Site, such as responding to user inquiries, processing transactions, distributing materials, and requesting feedback.

Third Party Privacy Policies

Through the Service, you may be able to link to technology, software and services owned and controlled by third parties (“Third Party Features”). You may be permitted or required to submit personal information to access Third Party Features. Such use of Third Party Features and submission of information through Third Party Features will be subject to such applicable third party’s terms of use, terms of service and privacy policy. You agree to look solely to the applicable third party and not to CreditMyRent.com to enforce your rights in relation thereto. When you have clicked on a third party logo or URL displayed on the Site, or accessible through the Service, which links you to any Third Party Features, our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use no longer applies and you must read the terms of use, terms of service and privacy policy of the third party to see how your personal information will be handled on their website.

When you register for our Services, we use the personal information you provide to us to verify your identity, communicate with you, and provide the Service to you, depending on the aspects of the Service for which you register. This includes verifying your identity, property address, and rent amount; reporting your information to third party credit bureaus; obtaining your credit score and excerpts of your credit report before and after the initial reporting of your rental history to the credit bureaus; alerting you of new products, services, features, or enhancements to the Service; handling your customer service questions or issues; processing orders; requesting feedback; distributing newsletters; and administering contests, promotions or surveys. We may also use your email address and phone number as part of the Service in sending you messages about the Service and other general announcements. We keep track of your interactions with us, including but not limited to your activity within the Service. Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, or unless we have your consent, we will not share your personal information with any person or entity other than those affiliated with us, entities acting on our behalf, and relevant third parties such as those needed to collect and maintain our servers and perform technology and related services.

We may supplement personal information we collect about you with information from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you. We may combine the information we receive from outside sources with personal information we collect through the Services. We treat all personal information about you, whether received from you or from a third party, in accordance with this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.

We may use your personal information with other information that we have collected, whether through the Services or from third parties, to tailor our content to you and to offer you opportunities to consider financial products or services that we believe may be of interest to you, such as credit card offers. We may process your personal information in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Service. We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information (the “De-Personalized Information”). You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, fully paid-up, sublicenseable, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully transferable right and license to use your personal information in connection with the creation and development of De-Personalized Information and analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect in providing the Service (the “Analytical Data”). We are expressly authorized to make any commercial use of the De-Personalized Information and Analytical Data, including without limitation, sharing the De-Personalized Information and Analytical Data with third parties, provided that we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer from us any part of the information or data that personally identifies any Service users.

Disputes

You agree that, in the event any dispute or claim arises out of or relating to this Privacy Policy, you and CreditMyRent.com will attempt in good faith to negotiate a written resolution of the matter directly between the parties.

This Privacy Policy may change from time to time and we will post all changes on the Site.
