PRIVACY POLICY


The information on this Web site (the "Site") is being collected by Red Truck Group, INC ("Red Truck").  This privacy policy is designed to tell you how we collect and use personal information so you can make an informed decision about using our Site. Please read this policy before using our Site or submitting any personal information to us.  By using our Site, you consent to the information collection and use practices described herein.  Red Truck reserves the right to change the provisions of this privacy policy at any time, but will alert you that changes have been made by indicating on the privacy policy the date it was last updated.  Your use of the Site following the posting of such changes or revised policy shall constitute your acceptance of any such changes. We encourage you to review our privacy policy whenever you visit our Site to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

We collect personal information in various ways when you use this Site.  Collection is done both actively (information you voluntarily submit to us) and passively (information automatically gathered from your computer).

ACTIVE COLLECTION.  At several places on our Site, we collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us which may contain personally identifiable information.  For example, our subscription page requests your name, address, and email address, and certain profile information about you.  You may provide us with credit card information for payment of fees collected by Red Truck.  If you send us an email request, we may also store that information.  You may also provide us with information regarding apartments that you are interested in or properties that you own.

PASSIVE COLLECTION.  Our software automatically collects certain information from your computer and mobile device (such as your Internet address, browser type and current location) using two methods:  (1) "cookies", [(2) log files and (3) Web Beacons]. [Note: Is this accurate?  Any other collection methods?  Not sure how to describe location information collection.]

1. Cookies.  A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user.  Usage of a cookie is not linked to any personally identifiable information while on our Site.  We use cookies to track a user's path for security purposes, as well as to target their interests in an effort to enhance the experience on our Site.  If you wish to block, erase, or be warned of cookies, please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn about these functions.  If a user rejects a cookie, they may still use our Site, however they will be limited in some of its areas.  For example, the user may not receive promotions or product information and use of the Site's apartment search functions may also be limited.  Please note:  while some of our business partners may use cookies on our Site, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

2. Log Files.  We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.  IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

3. Web Beacons.  We may collect information using Web beacons.  Web beacons are electronic images that may be used on our Site or in our emails.  We may use Web beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.

HOW DO WE USE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT?

Red Truck is the sole owner of the information collected on this Site.  Personal information that you provide Red Truck may be used by Red Truck in the following ways:

  • to contact you about your use of the Site or about our products and services;
  • to respond to your comments or requests;
  • to request feedback and to enable us to develop and improve the Site and our products and services;
  • for internal and marketing/promotional purposes; and
  • for the specific purpose for which the information was provided.

For example, we send new subscribers a welcoming email to verify password and username, and established subscribers will occasionally receive information on product services or special promotions.  Please see "What Choices Do You Have Regarding The Use Of Your Information?" below regarding your options not to receive such communications.  We also send subscribers our site and service announcement updates via email.  Subscribers are not able to un-subscribe from such announcements, which contain important information about our service. 

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE SHARE WITH THIRD PARTIES?

We will not sell, share, or rent any personal information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this policy without first obtaining your authorization.  We may provide aggregate information (i.e., information we collect that does not allow you to be personally identified or contacted) to third parties without your authorization, such as information about your access and use of the Site.

We may disclose personal information you provide to independent contractors, service providers and consultants who are engaged by or working with Red Truck.  For example, we share any personal information you provide in credit applications with potential funding sources.  We may also use credit card processing companies to process payments for goods and services, outside shipping companies to ship orders and credit bureaus to check credit histories.  We may partner with other parties to provide specific services and will share information with them in order to facilitate their provision of services.  For example, when the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information necessary for the third party to provide these services.

We may also disclose personal information we have collected if we are required to do so by law or if in our good faith judgment, such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, to respond to any claims, or to protect the rights of Red Truck and its customers and the public.

Please note:  This Site may contain links to other sites.  Please be aware that Red Truck is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.  We encourage our users/subscribers to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy policies of every web site that collects personally identifiable information.  Similarly, if you entered this Site through another site, Red Truck is also not responsible for the privacy practices of that site, and you should review the privacy policy of the originating site before providing any personal information to that site.  This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by Red Truck.
