When you use our mobile application or our website, your location may be obtained from the mobile device or the network, or directly from you, and may be used to search for information you may need, including local searches for rental properties. When we execute such searches on your behalf, we do not transfer your identity or Personal Information to third parties other than the rental property owners or managers. This information is not used to create a profile about you or your activities. Your location is only stored in the application if you save your location (rental property) searches, and you may delete this information by clearing your search history. Location coordinates are shared with our geocoding service providers (such as Google Maps) only to perform the task of providing maps and directions at your request. No location information is shared with any third parties for marketing purposes. Our application does not interact or share information with any other applications installed on your mobile device.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We may disclose Personal Information:

  • To affiliates and other entities within Florida Buy and Sell’s group of companies, distribution partners, other Florida Buy and Sell customers, and service providers
  • To third parties when you use a third-party feature in our Services
  • To enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements or comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including government or regulatory requests
  • To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Florida Buy and Sell’s assets

  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide Personal Information
  • With your consent, such as when you choose to provide your information to third parties
  • We may also disclose de-identified information without restriction. Note that if you make any Personal Information publicly available on the Services, anyone may see and use such information.

     Florida Buy and Sell may share member information in the following areas on the Services: Marketing Center, Email Alerts and Professional Directory. When a Florida Buy and Sell customer enters a sale or lease listing in the Marketing Center, listing contact information is also entered. During this process, the listing submitter is able to view other Florida Buy and Sell customers’ contact information when he or she adds another contact to the listing. In addition, Florida Buy and Sell customers can view contact information (name, email and phone number) when viewing a property listing profile.

The Services may also allow users to share contact information with one another via email alerts. With email alerts, users can save their property search criteria to have information about properties that match the specified criteria emailed to them. When selecting this service, users are given the option of releasing their contact information to other users who have property listings that match their criteria. This contact information is then shared with the users who have property listings that match the buying or leasing criteria.

International Transfer of Personal Information

Florida Buy and Sell is a global business. We may transfer your Personal Information to the United States, where we are headquartered, and to other countries which may not have the same privacy laws as the country in which you initially provided the information, but we will protect your Personal Information in accordance with this Global Privacy Notice, or as otherwise disclosed to you.

Security of Personal Information

Florida Buy and Sell implements security safeguards to protect your Personal Information.

We take steps to secure Personal Information through administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect against the risk of accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. For example, we encrypt payment card information in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and store sensitive information such as biometric and geolocation data on Florida Buy and Sell servers located in the United States with access limited to authorized Florida Buy and Sell employees.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted through the Internet, and where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.

Retention of Personal Information

Florida Buy and Sell generally retains records only as long as necessary and as required for our business operations, for archival purposes, and/or to satisfy legal requirements.

When determining the appropriate retention period for personal information, we take into account various criteria, such as the amount, nature and sensitivity of the Personal Information; potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure; purposes for which we process your personal information; whether we can achieve those purposes through other means; and business operations and legal requirements.

Because we maintain our applications and websites to protect from accidental or malicious loss and destruction, residual copies of your Personal Information may be retained in our backup and archival systems for a limited period of time, after which the information will be automatically deleted or put beyond use where deletion is not possible.

Manage Your Personal Information

You may manage your Personal Information by making certain choices. If you believe that any Personal Information you have provided to us is out-of-date or inaccurate, you may review and correct such information if it is within your online account by logging in at any time or Contact Us. You may also have additional rights detailed below depending on where you live. As a security precaution, we may need to request information from you to help us confirm your identity when exercising a right related to your Personal Information.

Depending on the Services, you may also be able to manage notification preferences in your account.
