We also gather information about how visitors navigate through our site by using clickstream data from 'cookies' or other online tools. A 'cookie' is a small data file that is stored by your Web browser on your computer. Most cookies are 'session cookies', meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of some of our site or services. You may also encounter cookies from third parties on certain pages of our Website that we do not control.
We will maintain the data that you provide us, along with a record of your site visits, in a secure database and use your information only as permitted by law. To best serve you, we may combine this information with data that is publicly available and data that we receive from other reliable sources whose policies meet the Direct Marketing Association's privacy standards. If you request specific products or services, we will transfer your listing contact information as required by vendors, companies, affiliates, and partners, unless you specify otherwise.
Credit card information collected provides our members with the convenience of purchasing our products and services online. Credit card information is defined as any information that appears on a page where a credit card number can be submitted. All credit card information is protected by SSL encryption technology. Once submitted, your credit card information is not stored on our server. Your credit card information will not be distributed unless we have your permission to do so or unless required by law.

Because email is used to provide certain notifications and services, registered users must provide an email address and must consent to receive email from RentalHousingDeals.com. All users may also receive certain notifications and services via telephone and therefore must consent to receive calls from the Renter's Hotline. You hereby consent to any such communication or phone calls even if your phone number is or later appears on any DO NOT CALL list.

We may also share your personal information with:
Members of our corporate family to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and provide joint content and services (for example, registration, transactions and customer support).

Other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information (or about whom you are otherwise explicitly notified and consent to when using a specific service).

In such events, we will disclose information relevant to the investigation, such as name, city, state, zip code, telephone number, email address, user ID history, IP address, fraud complaints, listing history and scheduled home visits.
Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.

Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, 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 site. 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.
Registered users can see, review and change personal and rental listing information by logging on to our Website. We will not manually modify your personal information. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Once you make a rental listing live, the information contained therein is not the responsibility of RentalHousingDeals.com. Upon your request, we will cancel your listing plan and remove your rental listing from our Website as soon as reasonably possible. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, or take any other actions otherwise permitted by law.
If you prefer not to receive email communications sent directly from our advertisers, partners or other non-affiliates, you have the opportunity to opt out of such communications. We may, from time to time, permit our advertisers, partners or non-affiliates to email you about products, services, special offers or content we mutually believe might interest you. If you decline or opt out of this opportunity to receive such information, we will not share the personally identifiable information you provide with them for such purposes, though we may from time to time send you information on their behalf. Additionally, we may provide personal information collected to our marketing partners in order to enhance the opportunity of locating potential buyers for a specific home or property listing.
You may opt out by email or telephone.
