Information posted on Properties ABC is publicly available. Our servers are located in the United Kingdom (UK) and United States (US). While the laws on handling personal data in the US may be perceived as less rigorous than the laws applicable to the UK, Properties ABC promises to handle your information in a lawful, confidential and secure manner. By choosing to provide us with personal information, you are consenting to the transmission and retention of that information on our servers in the UK and the US. We handle the following personal information: email address; additional contact information; and (depending on the service used) sometimes financial information; computer sign-on data; statistics on page views; traffic to and from Properties ABC and ad data. This latter information is acquired via cookies; cookies on your browser can be disabled but this is likely to impede your activity on the Site; other information, including user IP address and standard web log information, will also be acquired.
We acquire personal information in order to:
- provide the services outlined on the Site;
- address disputes and troubleshoot;
- maintain safe trading and enforce our policies;
- optimise user experience, evaluate interest in our services, and communicate with users about relevant services and news;
- communicate marketing and promotional offers;
- conduct other services for users as described during the collection of information.
We will not sell or lease your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your express consent. We may disclose personal information as deemed mandatory by law, or to enforce our policies, respond to claims that any content violates others' rights, or to protect anyone's rights, property, or safety. For example, if you submit false contact details or impersonate another person, we may pass your personal information to any implicated third party, their agent or to any law enforcement agency.
We may also share personal information with service providers who help with our business operations: to provide joint content and services, such as registration, transactions and customer service; to help detect and prevent potentially unlawful acts and violations of our policies; and to inform decisions about their products, services and communications. Members of our corporate group will use this information to send you marketing communications only if you have requested their services.
We use various tools to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, but as none of these is failsafe we are unable to make any guarantees therein.
