Introduction

We offer a wide range of services that focus on all stages of the home and business lifecycle: renting, buying, selling, financing, and home improvement.

We know that everyone’s journey is different, and that deciding on the right place to call home, invest in, work in and to store your valuable assets and collectibles is an intimate, personal experience. Along with a wealth of information about Car Properties (Residential and Commercial) we also use the information you give us to provide our services and help you find your next property.

We carefully evaluate how we use data to make sure that we’re using your information to provide value for you. On this page, we aim to explain everything you need to know about your privacy at CarProperty.com. If you have any questions that we haven’t answered here, you can always contactus at privacy@carproperty.com.

Information collected by CarProperty.com

When you use our services, we collect a variety of information from and about you and your devices. Some of this information identifies you directly (like an email address) while some of it is associated with you through your account, profile, or device (like the homes you choose to save or your location data).

The kind of data we collect about you depends on how you use CarProperty.com. If you only use our services to browse for properties, we’ll have less information about you than if register on the site and create a profile, or if you use any of our other transaction services, such as placing advertisements. Even if you don’t have an account with us, we may still collect some data about you, like your IP address and other device information when you browse our sites or use our apps and interact with our third party advertising providers and networks, such as the Google AdSense Network.

Information you give us or create using our services

When you use our services, we often ask you for information about yourself. This usually includes basic things like your name, email address, and phone number. If you use our transaction services, you will be directed to our third party payment processor vendor. We do not save or store any of your credit or debit card information on our servers. If you contribute information, such as comments about and on advertisements or user profiles, we’ll store that as well. This includes any comments you make on a real estate agents profile or advertisement.

You may also provide information about other people through our services. For example, if you share a home listing with someone, we will collect that person’s email address as part of your account information.

Below are some examples of what information we collect for our main products and services and how we collect it.

Searching Properties Using our Different Search Tools

When you use CarProperty.com’s property search tools to find a property, in any category, to buy or rent, we don’t save any information about your searches. That means that if you tell us what you’re looking for,such as number of garage spaces, or number of bedrooms, we do not save that information or your search results. If you use our Map Search tool to find properties or agents, we do not save that geographic information or your search results

We also help you connect with local real estate agents through our Agent Search tools (both textually by Country, State, City and Zip Code and through a geographic search using our Map Search tool. If you choose to contact one of these pros through our platform you are either given those agents contact information in their profile because they entered it fory ou to have, or through our email system to contact them. We do not save that information or your search results.

Services and Products for Professionals

If you are a real estate professional, you can setup a profile on CarProperty.com and you have the option to disclose as much information as you decide and choose to put on your profile for public consumption. We do not track or save any other information then what you voluntarily enter into your profile or your advertisements. If you sign up for zip code territories in our Agent Marketing Network, we do keep track of the zip code territories that you sign up for and they are displayed on our site in your profile and in our textual and map search tools. You can log-in and change or delete any of your profile information at any time, including any zip code territories that you’ve signed up for even before their subscription timeline has expired.
