We want you, our user, to understand how we collect and use data about your visit to the Websites, specifically the portions of the Websites or Services that require you to register and/or log in to gain access, fill out forms or otherwise provide information about you. You can choose not to provide us with this information, but certain portions of the Websites or certain Services may not be available to you.
3. TYPES AND COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
- 3.1 Personally identifiable information.
- 3.1.1 Personally identifiable information You Provide. In connection with your use of the Services we may ask you to provide personally identifiable information on the Websites, which may include your first and last name, home address, former home addresses, email address, home telephone number, mobile telephone number, employer name, work address, employment history, gender, birth date, age, personal traits and likeness, Social Security number ("SSN"), password, credit or debit card number or other payment method, billing information, preferences for products or services, shopping and entertainment, financial information and other information about you that is not otherwise publicly available. We also might ask you about relevant details about a property that interests you. These details may include whether the location is a business or residence, the location, and the square footage, to give some examples. This information can be gathered when you send us an e-mail or when you complete the specific web page request or registration form. In all such cases you choose whether to provide us with the personally identifiable information, but certain portions of the Websites or certain Services may not be available to you or we may not be able to respond to your inquiry effectively if you do not provide the personally identifiable information requested.
- 3.1.2 Personally identifiable information Acquired From Third Party Sources. Fenton also may acquire personally identifiable information about you from publicly available sources, social media platforms, third party providers of Services available on the Websites, vendors and other third parties that may share information as permitted in their privacy policies. For example, we may obtain personally identifiable information about you from our third party payment processing providers, currently ClickPay, Entrata and PayLease, in order to process rental and lease payments. In addition, if you register to use certain Services available through the Websites using login credentials from an account you have with a third party, such as a Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo or Google account, you give us express permission to receive data from such third party. Fenton may combine personally identifiable information and other information collected as described above with information available from other sources (such as other platforms, analytics services, offline records or publicly available information). If the combined information, or any other non-personal information that Fenton collects about you, is maintained, used or shared in a manner that associates it with you, your name, contact information (online or offline) or other personal information, we will treat such information as personally identifiable information.
- 3.2 Anonymous Information. We also collect certain anonymous or non-personal data regarding your usage of the Websites. This information does not personally identify users, by itself or in combination with other information. We gather it to improve the performance of the Websites and our Services. The non-personal data we collect can include, but is not limited to, information such as the type of browser you are using, your Internet Protocol address, the pages you view, and the length of your visit to the Websites, your media access control (MAC) address, the pages you request, type of computer or device you use, the operating system you use (e.g., Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, Google Chrome OS, iOS or Android), the type of browser you use (e.g., Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer or Safari), the domain name of the Internet service provider, your activities while visiting or using the Websites or Services and the content you access or view, the time of your visit to or use of the Websites or Services, your general geographic location such as the city from which your computer or device is connecting to the Internet, information regarding the websites you visit prior to and after visiting the Websites or using the Services, information regarding your Internet location when you see Fenton’s ads and whether you click on such ads, information regarding your age, gender and interests with respect to products and services.
- 3.4 Web Beacons The pages on the Websites may include Web beacons or pixels, which are electronic files to count users who have visited that page, to track activity over time and across different websites, to identify certain cookies on the computer or other electronic device accessing that page, or to collect other related information, and this information may be associated with your unique browser, device identifier, or Internet Protocol address. We may, for example, implement a pixel on the pages of the Websites where you view a certain advertisement so that we can track whether you visit a website associated with that advertisement at a later time.
- 3.5 Third Party Analytics, Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Tracking Tools. We use Google Analytics, which collects information about our users of our Websites and reports usage trends to us, without identifying individual visitors. Google Analytics may collect similar information from you when you are on other websites. To learn more about Google Analytics, including how to opt out of it, please visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
- 3.6 Do Not Track. California law requires us to let you know how we respond to web browser Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Because there currently isn't an industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals, we don't respond to them at this time. We await the result of work by the privacy community and industry to determine when such a response is appropriate and what form it should take.
