If you choose to submit your information, you will be required to provide personally identifiable information.

Collecting and Using Your Non-personal Information

We collect non-personal information about your use of the Site through the use of various technologies, such as cookies, web beacons and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream). The information collected through the various technologies enable us to facilitate use and ensure technical functioning of the Site, dynamically generate and deliver targeted content, statistically monitor usage of the Site, and improve the overall quality of our user experiences.

Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify security settings so that you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis or reject all cookies. If you reject cookies from our Site, some parts of the Site may not work properly for you.

Collecting and Using Your Personally Identifiable Information

Whenever you submit information via our Site, or otherwise in connection with your use of the Site, including, but not limited to, by telephone with customer service, you consent to the collection, storage, use, combination, deletion and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

When you use the Site, we collect personally identifiable information, including your:

• first and last name,

• telephone number, and
• postal address.

You may also provide information regarding problems you are experiencing or potential housing violations that are occurring.

You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the personally identifiable information and any other information that you provide in connection with your use of the Site and submission of any information.

In addition to the other uses described in this Privacy Policy, we may use the personally identifiable information (1) to identify your account for purposes of providing you with customer service, (2) to submit housing violations to the appropriate agency, (3) to send you communications regarding general housing violation information, updates, or changes to this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use.

Use of Aggregated Data

We may combine user-inputted information, including your address or proximity, housing violations information and other information provided by you with information from other users to create aggregated data that may be disclosed to and utilized by our affiliates and by third parties. Such aggregated data will not contain any information that could be used to contact or identify you.

Sharing of Information with Service Providers

Sometimes we may provide limited access to your personally identifiable information to our contractors and consultants, including vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, or content for the operation and maintenance of our Site or data and analysis on Site use. Such access is limited to the information reasonably necessary for the contractor or consultant to perform its services to us.

Our Site may link to or refer to websites or mobile device applications that we do not control. This Privacy Policy does not apply to such other websites or applications, and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of any website or application not controlled by us. If you have any concerns, we urge you to review the terms of those other websites or applications for more information about their applicable policies.


We take reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as you transmit it to us and to protect such information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. If we become aware of a security breach compromising your personal information, we will make all legally required disclosures, consistent with our ability to determine the scope of the breach, our need to restore the integrity of the system and the needs of law enforcement.
