This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the My Rent Coach website.
Tracking User Behavior
My Rent Coach may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within My Rent Coach, in order to determine what My Rent Coach services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within My Rent Coach to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
The My Rent Coach website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize My Rent Coach pages, or register with the My Rent Coach site or services, a cookie helps My Rent Coach to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same My Rent Coach website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the My Rent Coach features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the My Rent Coach services and websites you visit.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Security of your Personal Information
My Rent Coach secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. My Rent Coach uses the following methods for this purpose:
- SSL Protocol
When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
We also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed.
Do Not Track
California law requires us to let you know how we respond to web browser Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals. Because there currently isn’t an industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals and because we cannot guaranteed that third-party sites integrating with our Site will respond to DNT signals the same way, we don’t respond to them at this time. We await the result of work by the privacy community and industry to determine when such a response is appropriate and what form it should take.
Children Under Thirteen
My Rent Coach is in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) and does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. The My Rent Coach website and all products and services are directed toward individuals who are at least 13 years old and older.
From time to time, My Rent Coach may contact you via email for the purpose of providing announcements, promotional offers, alerts, confirmations, surveys, and/or other general communications. In order to improve our services, we may receive a notification when you open an email from My Rent Coach or click on a link therein.
