Privacy Policy for landlordology.com

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Landlordology we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.

Cozy Services Ltd. (“Cozy,” “we,” “our,” and “us”) operates Landlordology.com (“Landlordology”). It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most websites, Landlordology collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Landlordology’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Landlordology’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Landlordology may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Landlordology also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our website.

Notice Concerning Children

PLEASE NOTE: We are a general audience site, and do not direct any of our content specifically at children under 13 years of age. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a Site user is under age 13, we will promptly delete any personal information in that user’s account.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the Landlordology’s website choose to interact with Landlordology in ways that require Landlordology to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Landlordology gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Landordology.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Landlordology are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Landlordology collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Landlordology. Landlordology does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Landlordology discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at Landlordology’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Landlordology, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Landlordology discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cozy, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Landlordology website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Landlordology, other Cozy sites, and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

Automatic Collection

Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Landlordology uses cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of the Landlordology website, and their website access preferences. Landlordology visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Landlordology’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Landlordology may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If we, or substantially all of our assets, are acquired (including without limitation as part of a bankruptcy or other liquidation), user information may be transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Landlordology and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.
