We collect Personally Identifiable Information in different ways. We may collect this information directly from you.

They may do this to make sure our Platforms function properly. We may get information about you from third parties. For example, our affiliates or partners may give us information about you. If our Platforms have social media integration, social media platforms may also give us information about you.
For example, we may combine information about you that we have collected offline with information about you we collect online.

We may share your information if a government agency or investigatory body requests, and when we are investigating potential fraud.

If you block cookies, certain features on our Platforms may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.
Information we maintain may be stored both within and outside of the United States. If you live outside of the United States, you understand and agree that we may transfer your information to the United States. This site is subject to U.S. laws, which may not afford the same level of protection as those in your country.

We are not required to provide the above Personal Information to you more than twice in a 12-month period.
In addition, you have the right to ask us to delete the Personal Information we have collected about you, subject to certain exceptions as permitted by law. Once we receive and confirm your Verifiable Consumer Request (defined below), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.
If you are a California resident and would like to exercise the rights described above, please submit your request by:
If you use any other method to submit a request, you may be directed to the process above to correct your request.
For your security and to ensure unauthorized third parties do not access or ask us to delete your Personal Information, as required by law, we must be able to verify your identity and may require specific information from you to help us do so before we can act on your request (a Verifiable Consumer Request).
If you are a current customer or still have access to your Housinglist.com account, you will be required to authenticate your identity through your account.
Prior to deletion of your Personal Information, we will require that you follow a two-step process in which you clearly submit a verified request to delete Personal Information and then secondly confirm that you wish to have the Personal Information deleted. Failure to complete both steps will prevent your Personal information from being deleted.
If you do not have an account with us, you are not required to create one and any Personal Information you provide will only be used to verify your identity and authority to make the request. You will be required to provide certain information to start the verification process, which may include, at a minimum, depending on the sensitivity of the information you are requesting and the type of request you are making, verifying your name, e-mail address, and physical address. For more sensitive information, such as a request to know specific pieces of Personal Information, you will be also required to submit a signed declaration under penalty of perjury verifying you are the consumer whose Personal Information is the subject of the request.
If you have submitted a request to delete and if we cannot verify your identity, we will deny your request to delete but will instead treat the request as a request to opt out of the sale of your Personal Information.
The CCPA allows you to authorize an agent to submit certain requests on your behalf if you have provided that agent with signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney, or if designating a business entity as your agent, it is registered with the Secretary of State. You are required to verify your identity with the agent. We may ask your agent to submit proof that they have been authorized to act on your behalf and may deny any request from an agent that does not submit proof.
In some instances, we may decline to honor your request. For example, we may decline to honor your request if we cannot verify your identity or confirm that the Personal Information we maintain relates to you, or if we cannot verify that you have the authority to make a request on behalf of another individual. In other instances, we may decline to honor your request for information where an exception applies, such as where the disclosure of Personal Information would adversely affect the privacy of others or interfere with legal requirements. We may decline to honor your deletion request if your Personal Information is needed to provide you with service, complete a transaction or fulfill a legal obligation, where the Personal Information that we maintain about you is not subject to the CCPA or for any other reason authorized by law.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your Verifiable Consumer Request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA.
