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
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.
