Privacy Policy

We are serious about protecting the privacy of our users, which comprise travelers (who are seeking a property to rent) and members (who offer such properties on the Site). We use information collected about you only as permitted in this Privacy Policy. This is our privacy policy, but please be aware that should you follow a link to another website, you are no longer covered by this policy. It's a good idea to understand the privacy policy of any website before sharing personal information with it. Words and phrases used in this policy have the same meaning as in the Terms and Conditions of Use – available at www.RentalsYourWay.com/global/termsandconditions.htm (the “Terms and Conditions”).

Who processes your personal data ?

Your personal data (also referred to as personal information) – that is, data that identifies you, or from which you are identifiable – will be collected, processed, stored and used by us, and passed to and processed by our subsidiary and/or affiliated companies and other data processors acting under contract with us. Personal data contributed by or collected from users may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which we or our affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using our Site, you acknowledge and agree that you may be transferring your personal data outside of the country in which you have contributed it, and that you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to those that apply in your country. However, if we transfer your personal data outside of your country in this way, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected in compliance with applicable data protection law and this Privacy Policy.

The information we gather

At various times you may contribute your personal data to us. For example,
in order to process a request or enquiry you may make concerning a property or transaction, we need to know all or some of the following: your full name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and, in the case of a member’s (advertising) listing, a method of payment. You may also contribute personal data to us at other times, such as when registering on the Site.

For further detail on our gathering of personal data, see Surveys and Newsletters
below.

How we use your personal data

Your personal data will be used to provide and promote our Site, to process
payments members make to us, to provide user support, and for other purposes referred to in this Privacy Policy and the Terms and Conditions.

We will also use the personal data users provide to us to contact the user
from time to time with critical user or service updates, and to send other messages that are integral to the service we provide on the Site. If you have an account on the Site, we must always be able to e-mail you operational information about your account and your use of our services.

Your personal information is not shared with third parties, except: 1) in
the case of special promotions by us, or one of our partners, about which you've requested to be notified; 2) where a third party performs services on our behalf and has agreed to keep such information confidential (such as the processing of your credit card payment or the conduct of an online survey for example); and 3) our Affiliates, but only for the purpose of performing this Agreement.

In the event that we or the Site are acquired by a third party, your personal
information may be transferred to any such acquirer.

Newsletters:

As a member of the Site, you will receive our “Owner” newsletter,
which is an integral part of the service we provide. Traveler users of the Site will be given the option to receive our “Traveler” newsletter when they registered with us. Users may cancel their subscription to these newsletters at any time.

Surveys:

Surveys are another method by which we gather information about our users.
From time to time, we request users’ input in order to evaluate potential features and services. The decision to answer a survey is completely yours. We use information gathered from surveys to improve our service.

Inquiries:

Site users may send inquiries to members via clickable links on Site listings.
If you choose to send an inquiry through these links, your personal information, including your e-mail address and any other information you supply, will be visible to the member in question so that they might reply directly to you. If you call the member, you may be asked to leave a return telephone number. Do not share information in the e-mail or phone call that you are not prepared to allow them to have, including, but not limited to, credit card and bank account information. These inquiries are both sent to the individual member you selected and retained by us. The resulting inquiry is available for review only by the member to whom they were initially addressed and to our customer service employees, who may be asked by members for their past inquiry information. While the content of these inquiries is not shared with any other party, the Site may, from time to time, use third party e-mail servers to send and track receipt of the inquiry e-mails, and analyze the pattern of inquiry usage reported by these third party tracking systems; the resulting information is used and stored only in an anonymous form.

How Do We Protect Your Personal Information Once We Have It?

We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to guard against
unauthorized or unlawful processing of your personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by our site reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We have security measures in place to protect our user database and access to this database is restricted internally. However, it remains each user's responsibility:


  1. to protect against unauthorized access to your use of the Site;
  2. to ensure no one else uses the Site while the user’s machine is "logged on" to the Site service;
  3. to log off or exit from Site when not using it; and
  4. where relevant, to keep his/her password or other access information secret.

All personal information is stored on a secure server. We do not store credit
card numbers or related identifying information on any Site server. All such information is stored by our credit card processing partner, on their secured servers, and is protected via its proprietary methods. Please remember that many services and transactions are performed by our business partners. Our privacy policy and our security or common practices do not apply to other companies.

What is a Cookie and Why Do We Use Them?

A "cookie" is a small piece of information sent by a Web server
to store in a Web browser so that it can later be read back from that browser. We may use cookies to store some personal preferences for your future visits. Cookies allow us to recognize you more quickly; therefore, your time spent on our site can be more personalized and productive. You'll find that cookies are an industry standard and are used at most major websites in much the same way we use them here at our Site.

We use third-party site usage tracking companies to analyze your Site visit
or to conduct surveys. In the course of serving our pages, these third parties may place or recognize a unique "cookie" on your browser. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visits to the Site and other Web sites in order to help us understand how to serve you better.

We also use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit
our Site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. When you view a web page on our Site that contains advertising provided by one of these third parties, the service provider may place a cookie on or retrieve a cookie from your computer if you have not disabled your browser from receiving cookies.

At times, "cookies" may be used for remarketing with Google Adwords and analytics to display content specific advertisements to visitors that have previously visited our site, when those visitors go to other websites that have the Google Display Network implemented. 

If you wish, you can prevent cookie files from using (non-personal) information
about you by either deleting the cookie folder in your browser or by putting your browser’s Privacy setting higher, but doing so will mean that (a) your use of the Site will be adversely affected (and quite possibly entirely prevented), (b) your experience of this and other sites that use cookies to enhance or personalize your experience will be adversely affected, and (c) you will not be presented with advertising that reflects the way that you use our, and other, sites. You find out how to make these changes to your browser at this site: www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/. You can also opt out of Google's use of cookies by visiting Google's Ad settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads

Web Beacons and Clear GIFs

We gather and share anonymised information concerning the usage of the Site
by members and travelers with one or more third-party tracking companies for the purpose of reporting statistics. In this connection, some of the pages you visit on our Site use electronic images placed in the web page code, called pixel tags (also called a “clear GIFs” or “Web Beacons”) that can serve many of the same purposes as cookies.

Web beacons may be used to track the traffic patterns of users from one page
to another in order to maximize web traffic flow.

The Site's third-party advertising service providers may also use Web Beacons
to recognize you when you visit the Site and to help determine how you found the Site. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here: http://networkadvertising.org/consumer/opt_out.asp. How we protect your privacy with third parties

  • We participate in cookie-based ad networks operated by Exelate, Revenue Science and Tacoda.
