Collection and Use of Personally Identifying Information
UpSell collects and uses personally identifying information that you provide via our websites and associated applications. This personally identifying information may include your name, address, e-mail address, contact information, and information about property or properties you seek to sell. UpSell uses this information for its own business purposes, including to contact you, analyze the property or properties you seek to sell, and to formulate potential offers.
We do not sell any of the personal information we collect about you to third parties.
We may also share your personal information with third parties in connection with a merger, sale, acquisition, assignment, bankruptcy proceeding, reorganization or other disposition of some or all aspects of our business or assets.
“Nonpublic Personal Information” is the nonpublic information about you that is obtained by UpSell from you. UpSell and its advertisers may collect Nonpublic Personal Information from the online forms you complete, from your transactions with UpSell and its advertisers, and from consumer reporting agencies. UpSell will not disclose any Nonpublic Personal Information except as permitted or required by law or as described in this Policy. We may disclose all of the Nonpublic Personal Information we collect about you, as well as other information collected as described in this Policy, to our affiliates who offer related goods and services, and to nonaffiliated third parties that perform services on our behalf, including marketing services, or financial institutions with whom we have joint marketing agreements.
Other Information You Provide or Post
In addition to the practices described above, we may also use information we collect to, at your election, provide you with information and advertisements about goods and services we believe may be of interest to you.
You may provide us with testimonials about your experience with us (including a picture of yourself), and with feedback about our services. We may use any such information you provide to enhance our services and for public-facing marketing purposes, such as through online or public display of your testimonial, feedback, and/or picture. We may also incorporate information you provide through messages, e-mails, or other means (though not your personally identifying information) into our materials or offerings.
Accessing the Websites and Information Collection
Cookies & Location-Based Services
To provide location-based services, it may be necessary to collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your computer or device. Where available, location-based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine the location of your device. Unless you provide consent, such location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used to provide location-based services.
For example, your device may share its geographic location with a Service that selects and displays properties relative to the location of your device. Some location-based services may require your personal information for the service to be provided.
The Websites contain links to other websites. UpSell is not responsible for the privacy practices of sites other than our own. We encourage you to be aware of the privacy statements on other websites and to read those statements.
Protection of Information
Some areas of the Websites are secured and can only be accessed using unique login credentials. You must have a specific user identifier (user ID) and password to access resources through any password-protected portions of the Websites. Your login credentials and password are for your use only and strictly confidential. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of those credentials, and are responsible for all activity occurring on the Websites using your login credentials and password. You are strictly prohibited from any sharing of your login credentials and/or password with any other person(s) and from any use of your login credentials other than for your use of the Websites in compliance with the Online User Agreement.
Third-Party Data Collection/Online Tracking
UpSell does not track your activity over time and across different websites or online services other than as set forth herein, and we do not currently respond to browsers’ DNT signals with respect to the Websites. We do not permit our third-party service providers to collect information from the Websites for other websites or for their own purposes other than as described in this Policy.
Social Media; Third-Party Applications
The collection and use of information on social media websites and applications are governed by their own privacy policies and terms. We may receive personal information from a social media site platform or application when you connect through a social media feed, post content, or otherwise interact with us using social media tools. For example, we may receive basic Facebook account information (name, e mail, gender, birthday, current city, and profile picture URL) through Facebook. Also, when you “like” us, or send a “Tweet” to us through a social media channel, we may receive your username, handle, and any other available personal information from the social media site or application. All information received from social media sites and applications is treated and used in the same manner and for the same purposes as described in this Policy with respect to similar information we obtain through the Site.
We are committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations regarding the collection, storage, and use of personal information of minors under the age of 18, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.
Changes to This Statement
We employ reasonable security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of your information. We maintain organizational, technical and administrative measures designed to protect your information against unauthorized access, loss, alteration or misuse. However, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while we try to protect your information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
