Information We Collect
The personal information that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point we ask you to provide your personal information. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you such as your name, email address, phone number, the contents of the message and/or attachments you may send us, and any other information you may choose to provide.
How We use Your Information
We use the information we collect in various ways, including to:
If you choose to upload images to our website, we recommend reviewing and removing any sensitive location data embedded in the images. Your privacy and security are important to us, and we strive to maintain a safe environment for our visitors.
We value your feedback and appreciate your comments on our website. When you leave a comment, we collect the information you provide in the comment form to improve our services and ensure a secure browsing experience. We prioritize your privacy and take measures to prevent spam and protect your data.
Rather Be Properties follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this as part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
Embedded Content from Other Websites
Our articles may include embedded content from other websites, such as videos or images. This content behaves as if you were visiting the source website directly and may collect data about you. We recommend reviewing the privacy policies of these websites before engaging with their content to ensure your privacy and security.
How Long We Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment on our website, your comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This enables us to recognize and automatically approve any follow-up comments, ensuring a seamless experience for our visitors.
Rather Be Properties prioritizes the security and confidentiality of your personal information. We do not sell, trade, or transfer your data to external parties. However, we may share your data with trusted third-party service providers who assist us in operating our website and delivering our services under strict confidentiality agreements. Additionally, under the CCPA, California consumers have specific rights including the right to request disclosure of the categories and specific pieces of personal data we have collected, to request deletion of their personal data, and to request that we do not sell their personal data. We are committed to responding to such requests within a month. To exercise any of these rights, please contact us.
We want to ensure that you are fully aware of all your data protection rights. As a user, you are entitled to the following:
If you make a request, we have one month to respond to you. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us.
Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity. Rather Be Properties does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will do our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
