California Privacy Rights.
California Privacy Rights. Under California law, California residents who have provided personally identifiable information to a company may have the right to request a list of all third parties to whom that company had disclosed such information for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year, along with a list of the categories of Personal Information that had been so disclosed unless the company has a policy of not disclosing such information if the user has exercised an option to opt out of such information sharing. Appear Here gives you the right to opt out of having your Personal Information disclosed to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Because Appear Here provides you with an opportunity to opt out of such disclosure, Appear Here does not have to provide you with such lists. For the avoidance of all doubt, these opt-out options are available for all users and are not just limited to California users. If you are a California resident who would like information on how to exercise your rights concerning third party disclosures under California law, you may send an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Collection and Use of Information
We may collect and process the following Personal Information about you: - Information that you provide by filling in forms on the Site. This includes a variety of information that you provide at the time of registering to use our Site, subscribing to our service, posting material or requesting further services. This information may include, but is not limited to your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and birthdate. We may also ask you for information when you report a problem with our site. - If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. We also collect and maintain details of every rental transaction you apply for or enter into through our site. Through our use of “cookies” and web beacons, as explained below, we also collect details of your visits to the Site and the resources that you view or access when you use the Site.
An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your internet service provider when you log on. We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual. Although your IP address is not linked to your Personal Information, Appear Here does reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten the Site or other users or visitors. IP addresses may also be used to help diagnose problems with the Site and to gather broad demographic information.
Other Information. When you access the Site, Appear Here will automatically receive some information about your use of the service. The type of information that is automatically collected by Appear Here includes such things as the date and time of access of the Site, the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer that you are using, the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your browser software and operating system, the referring website address, and the kinds of business activities you are engaged in while using the Site. This information is used to help us improve and enhance the website to better meet the needs of its users. Appear Here may also share aggregate tracking information with advertisers and/or its strategic partners.
Appear Here will also aggregate, anonymized Personal Information and may use, share and disclose such Personal Information as permitted by law. For example, we may use such aggregated Personal Information for research and product development purposes, and may also share such aggregated, anonymized Personal Information with Appear Here’s business partners.
Regardless of whether a User has chosen to limit Appear Here’s sharing of Personal Information as collected on the Site, Appear Here may, without restriction, use, share and disclose aggregated, anonymized statistics about Users, along with specific information concerning individual Users that is not Personal Information in any way permitted by applicable law.
If you want to delete any cookies that were already sent to your computer, please refer to your web browser’s “Help” facility. In addition, most web browsers can be set to prevent you from receiving new cookies, notify you before accepting cookies or disable cookies altogether. Details about this can normally be found in the “Help” facility provided with your browser. Please note that if you disable cookies you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Site’s interactive functionality.
Do Not Track Signals
Certain web browsers provide users with an option by which a user may have his/her browser send a “Do Not Track” signal to websites that the user is visiting, advising the recipient websites that the user does not want to have his/her online activity tracked. However, the way browsers communicate such “Do Not Track” signals is not yet uniform and, accordingly, our Site does not take any action in response to such signals. In the event a final standard is developed and accepted, we may reassess how we should respond to such signals.
You must be 18 years of age to use the Site. Appear Here does not knowingly collect or maintain any Personal Information from children under the age of 13, and no part of this Site is designed with the purpose of attracting such children. The Site is only intended for use in the United States. If you use the Site from any country outside the United States, the various communications will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries. By visiting the Site, you consent to these transfers.

This information may also be used to help Appear Here and its commercial partners, co-sponsors and services providers deliver information to you, and for other purposes as are reasonably necessary to provide the services requested by you. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings or other messages from us by following the instructions in the e-mail or other message you receive from us or by following the instructions set forth in the Opting In and Opting Out of Electronic Communications section in this Policy.
Opting In and Opting Out of Electronic Communications.

You may also opt-out or change your preferences by providing opt-out instructions – e.g. sending an email to email@example.com including the contact information we are using to communicate with you, such as your email address. Be sure to let us know the specific types of communications you no longer wish to receive.
Lawful Access, Legal Action and Investigations. Your Personal Information may otherwise be disclosed to non-affiliated third parties as either permitted by, or to comply with, applicable laws and regulations. Your Personal Information may be transmitted through and stored on servers in Ireland. ** ** We may disclose Personal Information if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities or fraud, situations involving the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms and Conditions of Use, or otherwise in accordance with applicable law.
Disclosure of Personal Information to Non-Affiliated Third Parties. In addition to the above disclosures, Appear Here may share your Personal Information, without restriction, with companies and organizations that we retain to perform services for us, such as those that provide data processing, computer software maintenance and development, and companies providing professional, legal or accounting advice to us. In such situations, Appear Here requires that these companies and organizations agree to (a) maintain the confidentiality of the Personal Information, and (b) limit the use of such Personal Information to the purposes for which it was provided. However, we may disclose aggregated statistics about visitors to the Site, along with anonymous information concerning individual users of the Site. We may combine anonymous information and/or aggregate information we collect with additional anonymous and/or aggregate information collected from other sources. We may share anonymous information (including aggregate information) we collect regarding our users with third parties (such as advisors, and/or consultants) for various business purposes including conducting general business analysis, and developing website content and services.
Retention of Personal Information. Personal Information is retained to deliver our services, to otherwise fulfill identified or apparent purposes, and Personal Information may be retained for record-keeping. At some point Appear Here may elect to destroy, erase or anonymize your Personal Information. Once anonymized, we undertake not to re-identify the information.
Links to Other Sites and Services
The Site may contain links to various other sites. These sites may ask to collect user information voluntarily or otherwise collect certain information (for example, your IP address). Please be aware that these other websites may have different privacy policies that may subject users to different privacy practices. Please review the privacy policies of such other websites for information concerning what information is collected on such websites and how it is used.

There are industry standard safeguards in place to protect Users’ Personal Information, such as the use of firewalls and SSL certificates, and limiting access to such information by company personnel. Personal Information will be stored in databases and servers located in Ireland.However, no transmission made through the internet can be made completely secure, and accordingly, we will not be liable for the disclosure of any Users’ Personal Information that occurs as a result of transmission errors or the actions of any third party to the fullest extent permitted by law.
In the unlikely event that we determine that there may have been a security breach that results in the unauthorized disclosure of Personal Information to a third party, Appear Here will promptly notify consumers whose Personal Information it reasonably believes may have been compromised by posting information on the Site and, if email contact is possible, then also by sending an email notification with respect to the situation.
Options to Review and Opt-Out Choices
In addition to having the ability to opt-out of receiving electronic communications (such as emails from Appear Here), Users may access, review and, in certain situations, update, revise and/or delete certain Personal Information by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. ** ** Additionally, please note that while you may request the updating, revision or deletion of such information, a copy of the unrevised information may be maintained in Appear Here’s records after any such revision or deletion.
