Information We Collect:
Personally Identifiable Information:
Personally Identifiable Information refers to any information that can be used to identify you as an individual in any way. Enrollment in any RentBeforeOwning.com service is contingent upon your agreeing to the Terms and Conditions of membership and providing Personally Identifiable Information as described above.
The RentBeforeOwning.com marketing program has a strict policy regarding unsolicited email. Because email is an integral part of our services, your signup ensures that you'll receive information relative to your interests at the time of your enrollment from RentBeforeOwning.com. If you later wish to cease participation in this portion of our services, you may do so at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link or button found within such message.
Please note that opting not to receive email does not exempt you from receiving administrative and informational emails from us, which include but are not limited to, notices about membership status changes and alterations to our Terms.
We may, from time to time, contact you regarding opportunities that may be of interest to you. In that process, we may use a third party service provider to manage our database and communication system in order to send that correspondence to you on our behalf. If you respond to a communication to take advantage of an offer you may see or receive, you share your Personally Identifiable Information with a third party. From time to time, we do share non-personally identifiable information collected in aggregate, anonymous form with third parties so that they may better evaluate what products and services are most appealing to different segments of our member base.
Automatically Collected Information:

We may use third party cookies and clear pixels (also referred to as "web beacons") to measure page views and email responses. These devices allow us to identify unique visitors to our Site and act as a counter for ongoing monitoring of Site, email and corresponding future transaction activity related to a specific offer.
Third-Party Websites and Services:
Occasionally, you may be offered the opportunity to participate in an offer or service that, by its very terms, will require us to forward your Personally Identifiable Information to the advertiser or partner so that they can provide the service to you. As always, it is your choice to participate.
We do not guarantee the content or information practices of any third-party site. You alone are responsible for determining the appropriateness of sharing your Personally Identifiable Information with our advertisers.
We have your consent to share collected personally identifiable information (including email addresses) with third parties for commercial purposes, such as advertising.
