05 How We Use Your Information

We describe below how we use the information you provide so that you can make the decision of whether or not to use the Site. Because the Site permits you to search listings, the Site must use information provided by you to deliver search results. Like search engines, the Site requires sharing a minimum amount of information for its search engine functionality to provide results. In addition:

  1. To Process Listings: The information you provide to us will be used to process listings, including by providing this information to applicable third parties, as set forth in Section 4 above.
  1. To Improve the Site: Any of the information we collect, as described above, may be used for the following purposes: to improve and develop services and products; to ensure and improve the technical functionality of the Site and network; to facilitate your completion of data fields in repeat visits to the Site; to protect the rights of you, HiRise and other HiRise users, and to help HiRise in providing services to you.
  2. To Identify Yourself to Other Users: The Site may offer the ability for you to identify yourself and your profile information (such as your username and first and last name) to other tenants and users, but only if you choose to do this.
  3. To Provide Information to You: The information you provide to us may be used by us to provide you with additional information about HiRise and related entities/services, unless you opt out.
  4. To Develop Aggregated Data: We may aggregate the information we collect regarding your use of the Service and the Site, including your transactions with other users, with similar information regarding other users. We may use that aggregated data, in a manner that anonymizes your identity so that you and your uses and transactions cannot be identified, to enhance the Service to you and others, develop new features of the Service, to provide reports to lessors of properties, and otherwise for analytical and marketing purposes.
06 Your Privacy Choices

Regardless of whether you are logged in to your account, the Site provides you the following protections to enhance privacy:

  1. As mentioned in Section 4 above, and except for critical system communications, you and your information will be provided to HiRise related entities and third party vendors of products and services such as insurance only if you choose to contact, communicate with or purchase from these entities and vendors.
