Our business partners, ad networks, and other third parties may also have their own websites and services with separate privacy practices and policies. We encourage you to read the privacy notices of all websites, portals, and applications that you visit to understand their privacy practices. Our website may contain “links” to other third party websites/service providers. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices employed by other sites, so please read the privacy policies of these sites before disclosing any personal information to or through them.

By providing personal information to Propeze through our Platform and/or Services, you agree and consent that we may collect, use, and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Policy. You may refuse or withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal and contractual restrictions and reasonable notice; however, refusal or withdrawal of consent may prevent us from providing you with our products or services.

Throughout this Privacy Policy, the term “personal information” is information about an identifiable individual.

Sharing and Disclosure of Your Information

  • When you consent: We will share your personal information when you consent or direct Propeze to share it. This happens when you submit your information through many of our Services. For example, if you choose to contact a real estate professional, your name and contact information will be shared with that professional.

Such information may be shared with other third parties for the purposes of completing a transaction.

We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may share certain personal information when we believe it is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of others and Propeze, including to enforce or investigate a potential violation of the MSSA (accessible at www.propeze.com/mssa), detect, prevent, or otherwise respond to fraud, security or technical concerns, to support auditing and compliance functions, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Propeze, its users, or the public against harm.

  • With our service providers: When we hire a service provider to help us operate the Platform, Services, or our business, we may give the service provider access to personal information only as necessary and appropriate for them to perform the required service for us, and only subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Retaining Your Information

We may also retain aggregate information beyond this time for sale, research purposes, and to help us develop and improve our services. You cannot be identified from aggregate information retained or used for these purposes.

Security of Your Information

We restrict access to personal information to our employees, contractors, and agents who need to know the information to process it for us, and who are subject to confidentiality obligations.

Any sensitive personal information will be transmitted in an encrypted form using SSL encryption. Notwithstanding our security safeguards, it is impossible to guarantee 100% security in all circumstances.
