Privacy Policy

Last updated: March 25, 2014


Introduction


ALL COLLEGE RENTALS, LLC, (“ALL COLLEGE RENTALS”) respects your privacy. 

This Privacy Policy explains how ALL COLLEGE RENTALS collects, uses, and safeguards information on AllCollegeRentals.com and any other website operated by ALL COLLEGE RENTALS from time to time (the “Site” or “Sites”).  This Privacy Policy only applies to information collected by ALL COLLEGE RENTALS through its Sites.  ALL COLLEGE RENTALS reserves the right to amend the Privacy Policy at any time, for any reason, and with or without notice of any kind. 

The terms “users” or “you” as used in this Privacy Policy, refer to both members, who join the Site to look for properties to rent, and landlords who use the Site and list their properties for rent.  It also applies to other visitors to our site - for example our investors or those applying for a job through the site.  Unless we explain otherwise in this policy, the words and phrases used in this policy have the same meaning as in the Terms and Conditions.

By providing information to AllCollegeRentals.com when subscribing, contacting us or otherwise using the Site, you expressly agree to this Privacy Policy.  This Privacy Policy was last updated on March 25, 2014.  This Privacy Policy applies from that date.  We may occasionally amend this Privacy Policy to reflect regulatory requirements, advances in technology, Site updates and changes in our information collection and disclosure practices. Any new policy will automatically be effective when it is published on the website. You should therefore return here regularly to view our most up to date Privacy Policy. You should also print a copy for your records.

With Whom We May Share Your Information


ALL COLLEGE RENTALS may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process served on ALL COLLEGE RENTALS; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ALL COLLEGE RENTALS; or (c) protect the personal safety of ALL COLLEGE RENTALS personnel, members, directors, officers, employees, or members of the public in urgent circumstances. 

ALL COLLEGE RENTALS may also share your personal information with (a) another user if you are conducting a rental transaction with them; (b) a third party performing on our behalf; (c) other companies or business entities, for example if we are considering a merger or sale; (d) third-party companies with whom we work to feature property listings and other promotional services; (e) any third-party Site that you have asked us to share your personal data, such as Facebook


Newsletters


If you sign up as a member on the Site, you will receive our Member newsletter, which is an integral part of the services we provide. Landlord users of the Site will be given the option to receive our Renter newsletter when they register with us. AllCollegeRentals.com may offer different newsletters from time to time intended to enhance the services we or they offer. Users may cancel their subscription to these newsletters at any time, although it may take a short while for the changes in your preferences to become effective in accordance with applicable laws.


Surveys


We also use surveys to collect information about our users. From time to time, we request users’ input in order to evaluate potential features and services. The decision to answer a survey is completely yours. We use information gathered from surveys to improve our services.


Inquiries


Members may send inquiries to landlords via clickable links on the listings on the Site. If you choose to send an inquiry through these links, your personal information, including your email address and any other information you supply, will be visible to the user in question so that they might reply directly to you.  Your details may also be sent to us and we may have access to those communications even if you contact the user directly.  Additionally those messages may be hosted on, be processed by or transmit through our servers. Do not share information in the e-mail or that you are not prepared to allow them and AllCollegeRentals.com to have, including, but not limited to, credit card and bank account information. Inquiries can be sent to the individual member you selected and to our system. The resulting inquiry is available for review by the member to whom it was initially addressed and to our customer service people, who may share past inquiry information, or information related to past stays including your contact details with members. We may also from time to time, use third-party e-mail servers to send and track receipt of inquiry emails, and analyze the pattern of inquiry usage reported by these third party tracking systems.


Information Security


ALL COLLEGE RENTALS implements commercially reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data and personal information.  We restrict access to personal information to the ALL COLLEGE RENTALS employees and contractors who may need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our services.  These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. 


User ID and Password


Certain areas of the Site require the use of a user ID, email address, and password as an additional security measure that helps protect your information.  When you have finished using a secure area of the Site, make sure you click on the “Sign Out” link which appears on every secure page to end your secure session.  No further secure transaction can be conducted without re-entering your user ID and password.  You should be aware that browser software often “caches” a page as you look at it, meaning that some pages are saved in your computer’s temporary memory.  Therefore, you may find that clicking “Back” will show a saved version of the secure site.  This does not affect the security of your confidential user ID or password, but you should be sure to log off the computer to avoid allowing other users to access the cached page by hitting “Back.”


Phishing or False Information


If you receive an unsolicited email that appears to be from ALL COLLEGE RENTALS or one of our users that requests personal information (such as your credit card, login, or password), or that asks you to verify or confirm your account or other personal information by clicking on a link, that email was likely to have been sent by someone trying to unlawfully obtain your information, sometimes referred to as a “phisher” or “spoofer.” AllCollegeRentals.com do not ask for this type of information in an email. Do not provide the information or click on the link.  Contact us if you get an email like this.


Accessing and Changing Your Information


If you are a registered user of ALL COLLEGE RENTALS, you may review and update or correct your information by using your user ID or e-mail address and password or by contacting ALL COLLEGE RENTALS at .
