- Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization.
Your Access to and Control Over Contacts
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do so at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the RealtyZapp website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
In order to use the RealtyZapp website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on the RealtyZapp site in which you have expressed interest.
The RealtyZapp web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
From time-to-time RealtyZapp may request information via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
User Information Provided By You
Any user information we collect is considered private and we do not use it or share it except as permitted herein, without the user's permission. If you submit personally identifiable information to contact another member, contact a subscriber about a listing, create a listing, add your contact information to the Agent Directory or your RealtyZapp profile, such information becomes publicly available and RealtyZapp is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit to these services, forums, listings, or persons.
Information Collected by RealtyZapp
RealtyZapp collects user information from several areas of the RealtyZapp site including the registration process, and information provided by you to build a profile or list real estate, etc. on the RealtyZapp website. RealtyZapp collects individual user search activity for statistical, archival, and business purposes. RealtyZapp collects financial information (such as billing address, credit card number, expiration date) for billing payment and credit card authorization purposes. RealtyZapp may track the IP address of a user's computer or place a "cookie" in the browser files of a user's computer.
Though RealtyZapp makes every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served upon RealtyZapp. Users agree to share their contact information and allow all RealtyZapp users to view their contact information via the RealtyZapp directories or links made available to users on a listing or in an email, or otherwise during use of the RealtyZapp website. Unless required by law as detailed in this section or a user specifically takes action as discussed in this paragraph, RealtyZapp does not share individual user search activity information and such activity information remains private to the individual user and to RealtyZapp.
RealtyZapp shares information with its partners for the purpose of providing related services in which we deem our users have interest. The use that RealtyZapp's partners make of customer information will not exceed RealtyZapp's use of the data. Key billing information (such as credit card number, expiration date and dollar amount) gathered from users making online purchases of products or services is shared with PayPal, our credit card processing partner, in order to authorize charges to the credit card. RealtyZapp also uses third party providers to perform email and postal mailings on behalf of RealtyZapp, but this information (such as name, address and email) is confidential and is not used by the provider for any other purpose.
RealtyZapp does not rent or lease user information to any third party, except as disclosed here. From time to time, RealtyZapp may obtain information (such as electronic mail addresses) from third party providers. It is our goal to only contact individuals who we believe may have a legitimate business interest in RealtyZapp based on their membership or participation in other organizations or web sites, and who have indicated a willingness to be contacted for this purpose. While RealtyZapp endeavors to work with other sites and companies with a similar respect for user privacy, RealtyZapp cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other sites.
Please be aware that in the event RealtyZapp merges with a third party, or in the event all or substantially all of RealtyZapp's assets are acquired by a third party, customer information, including personally identifiable information, will be shared and/or transferred to such third party. The information may only be used or shared by such third parties for the primary purpose for which the information was originally collected. If such third parties, or if RealtyZapp for its own business needs, desire to use the personally identifiable information for another purpose, you will be notified prior to the information being used for a new purpose, and you will have the opportunity to opt out of such new use of your personally identifiable information.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
Security of personal information:
RealtyZapp's clients and their personal information are considered to be RealtyZapp's greatest asset and thus their privacy is treated with the utmost regard and respect. RealtyZapp takes every reasonable precaution to secure personal information within both its computers and its physical premises.
The security of your personal information is important to RealtyZapp. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security or privacy on our Web site, you can email us at email@example.com.
