The Geyser Group’s Commitment to Privacy
What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit the Site, you may provide us with one of three types of information: (1) Personal Information, which means personal information that you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual or corporate basis; and (2) Aggregate Information, which refers to general web site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse the Site.
1. Personal Information You Choose To Provide
In order to access and use certain investor features of the Site via an investor portal, you must first set up an investor account. You must voluntarily submit certain personal information about yourself or your employer or business if you are opening an account on behalf of your employer or your own company.
In addition, for the purpose of providing the general information from us and our service providers, if you choose to correspond further with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
Mobile Device Information
We also collect Personal Information from your computer, tablet, mobile phone or other device that you are using to access our Services. This can include the IP address, the browser, geolocation and your language settings.
Individual Data Set Information
You may submit individual data sets containing Personal Information related to your real estate investments, contractors, or customers into the Site.
In general, Personal Information may include name, home address, email address, IP address, device identifier, social media account username or ID, phone number, SMS text messaging account name or number, personal preferences, and other user account-related information.
Personal Information is collected online when users voluntarily submit non-public personal information on the Site by requesting information, receiving electronic notices or other similar communications. Only your IP address would be collected automatically when you access the Site for purposes of enhancing the Site browsing via cookies and/or auditing.
We will retain any personal information submitted by you for fulfillment of the intended purposes for which such is collected. We will establish minimum and maximum retention periods based upon the type of information collected (i.e., sensitivity), the intended purposes and as otherwise may be legally required. We will retain your Personal Information for as long as you use the Site and until you request to delete your data.
2. Aggregate Information Based On Website Interactions
Aggregate Information is non-personally identifiable or anonymous information about you, such as pages most frequently accessed by you, time spent on a page or area of the Site, the number of visits to the Site by you, types of browser used by you, cookie preferences or search terms entered by you. Aggregate Information is used in a collective manner, and no single person can be identified by that compiled information (for example, the number of people who logged into the Site in a particular day). Aggregate Information does not personally identify a specific user.
When you visit the Site, we automatically collect Aggregate Information about your visit. We can tell the type of computer, browser, and web service that you are using. We also know the date, time, and pages that you visit. Collecting this information helps us design the Site to enhance your experience while on our site.
We may share Aggregate Information with third parties to enhance your experience on our Site and otherwise in fulfillment of obligations. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users’ movement on the Site, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the Site, and deliver customized, personalized content and data analytics reporting. IP addresses, however, are not linked to Personal Information. We also may use an unique assigned number located with the Site’s URL to determine the web site from which you navigated to get to the Site. While this number may not be apparent to you, it does not contain your Personal Information.
Similar to other commercial web sites, our Site utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and web server logs or beacons to collect information about how the Site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the Site, and the web sites visited by you prior to and after the Site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
How Do We Use Personal Information Provided By You To Us?
Generally, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information that we collect to notify you about important changes to the Site and new services and special offers that we think that you will find valuable. The lists are used to send you product and service offers developed and managed under our traditional corporate standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of our customers’ personal information.
How Does The Geyser Group Use Social Media?
We use social media in different ways and for different purposes. We use it partly to facilitate the use of certain features of the Site, but also to promote our services and mission and to advertise, improve and facilitate the real estate projects and other product and service offerings on the Site.
Do We Share Personal Information Provided or Collected From You?
As a general policy, we do not share, sell or trade Personal information with third parties without your permission; however, we may provide Personal Information to third parties directly involved in the operation, performance, support and/or maintenance of the Site and each service offered on the Site, including our web site service providers, technical consultant, network retailers and business partners. We also may use your information to personalize your experience and allow us to deliver the type of content and information found on the Site and to administer a coupon, promotion, survey, or other Site feature, to ask for ratings and reviews of products and services, and to correspond with you.
We also may share Personal Information with third parties in limited circumstances. For example, we may release Personal Information to third parties to perform services such as hosting the Site (and/or features available on the Site). Such third parties are obligated to maintain the confidentiality of Personal Information and are not authorized to use Personal Information for any purpose other than providing those services or otherwise enhancing your experience on the Site. Aggregate Information may at times be shared with our business partners and other third parties.
From time to time, we may be required to provide Personal Information or Aggregate Information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law, or if we reasonably believe that you have committed unlawful acts or acts that may endanger the health or safety of another user or the general public. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.
We also reserve the right to share, assign or transfer your Personal Information to any of our affiliates or any successor in interest to our organization by merger, reorganization, or operation of law.
How Do We Secure Your Information?
We maintain commercially reasonable safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the Personal Information provided by you. Such security safeguards are intended to be appropriate to the sensitivity of the Personal Information collected. When you send confidential and/or personal information to us on the Site, a secure server software encrypts all information that you input before it is stored in our network servers. The information also is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches the Site. These security measures work to make sure that such personal information is not accessible by third parties.
