Commercial Service Information
As used herein, “Commercial Service Information” means (i) any information that you post or provide to us via the Services applications and other tools, for our provision to you or others through the Services, including but not limited to property listings, pricing and location (your User Content” – as further described in our Terms of Service), and (ii) any other information that we collect through the Services and/or that is shared with Funnel by its business partners (“Funnel Content” – as further described in our Terms of Service).

Your Personal Information
Information You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you enter on the Site or through the Services or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of all of our features. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain services, customizing the advertising and content you see, communicating with you about our products, and marketing our Services and those of our partners to you. In order for you to use all of the features available on Funnel or Funnel Listings, you must register with the Site. We require your name, business e-mail address, company name (if applicable), and password during the registration process.
We may also request optional demographic information and unique identifiers to provide you with a more personalized service. Your username and certain profile information, and any Personal Information you include in the post, are visible to other users.
You are solely responsible for the consequences of posting information on the Site. Funnel assumes no liability for the consequences of your disclosure of information on the Site and through the Services. If you choose to purchase paid components of the Services, further information may be required, such as a physical address, order information, and billing information. Funnel uses third-party partners for credit card processing and invoicing who may require and store your credit card and billing information under their own terms and conditions. We may also require you to submit additional industry-related information in connection with submissions you may make on the Services, including but not limited to property information and policies from property owner or management company users, and business contact information, and employment information and license numbers from broker and agent users.
Prospective Tenants’ Personal Information
We also collect certain Personal Information you voluntarily provide in order to initiate rental housing search, application, lease fulfillment, and related services. For example, you may be asked by Funnel to provide Personal Information such as name, email address, and phone number to request a tour of a rental community. If you do not provide this Personal Information, we may not be able to assist you in scheduling a tour. We may collect your email address so that we can send you information you have requested, to inform you about current events, or to send you updates regarding information that was previously sent to you.

Web Traffic Information
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Funnel automatically receives and records “traffic data” on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, Funnel cookie information, and pages you request. Funnel uses this traffic data to analyze trends and administer the Site. Our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Site and its components. This data is only used in the aggregate. This type of collective data enables us to figure out how often users use different parts of the Site and Services. In addition, we may provide statistical collective user information, not information about you personally, to our partners so that they may understand how often people use specific components of our Site and Services.
California Do Not Track Disclosure
Information From Other Sources
To improve our Services, we may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. Like the information you provide to us, we do not share this information with anyone except authorized third parties we work with in order to provide you with our Services.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our Site are visited and by how many people. Funnel cookies do not collect Personal Information. Most browsers allow you to prevent the browser from accepting new cookies, to be notified when you receive a new cookie, or to disable cookies.
Email Sync and Calendar Sync
Funnel will not use this Gmail data for serving advertisements. Funnel will not allow humans to read this data unless we have your affirmative agreement for specific messages, doing so is necessary for security purposes such as investigating abuse, to comply with applicable law, or for internal operations and even then only when the data have been aggregated and anonymized.
Sharing of Information by Funnel
We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. Except as explicitly provided for in a superseding agreement you may have entered with Funnel, we only share your Personal Information only as described below.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control
Funnel may provide services or sell products jointly with affiliated businesses. We will share customer information that is related to such transactions with those affiliated businesses. Funnel may receive from other registered users a record of transactions you may have entered into with them and we will use this information as directed by them. If you believe any of the information we receive about transactions that involve you is incorrect, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to help us to attempt to correct any errors. Funnel may share aggregated demographic information regarding users with business partners.
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to enable them to provide us with their products and services. Examples include, but are not limited to, billing, processing payments, marketing assistance, and customer service. We require our agents to subscribe to the same level of privacy protection as we do. Unless we tell you differently, Funnel’s agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. Financial and billing information is passed to third party processors who are authorized to use this information solely to bill for the Services. This billing information is never seen by Funnel nor used by Funnel for any purposes. Funnel uses third-party intermediaries to manage credit card processing and billing who may store, retain, and use the information provided solely for the purpose of credit card processing.
We may send offers to certain users on behalf of other businesses or provide our partners with the opportunity to notify users directly of promotions by e-mail. If you do not wish to receive these offers, you may opt out by e-mailing us at email@example.com.
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Funnel, the business related to the Site or Services, or substantially all of Funnel’s assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets that is reviewed and transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Funnel or the Site or Services may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
Child Protection and Privacy
Funnel does not knowingly seek to collect or maintain Personal Information or other information from children under the age of 13. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete any Personal Information or other information later determined to be provided by a child under the age of 13. Use of the Web Site by children under the age of 13 is not permitted. If you become aware that a child has provided Personal Information through our Web Site, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any California residents under the age of eighteen (18) who have registered to use our online services and who posted information on the service can request removal by contacting us at email@example.com, detailing where the information is posted and attesting that you posted it. We will then make reasonably good faith efforts to remove the information or anonymize it, so the minor cannot be individually identified to the extent required by applicable law. This removal process cannot ensure complete or comprehensive removal.

We may release Personal Information when we in our sole discretion believe in good faith that release is necessary or appropriate to comply with the law, enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements, or protect the rights, property, or safety of Funnel, our employees, our users, or others.
