with Third-Party Vendors
Toledo REIA shares information collected through this Site with third-party vendors who act for us or on our behalf. For example, we may use third-party vendors to design and operate this Site; to conduct surveys, and to help us with our promotional efforts. These third-party vendors may need information about you to perform their functions. Additionally, we will share your information with third-party vendors when you request us to do so. For instance, you may request that we provide your information to hard money lenders so that you may receive information about offers and rates.
Other third parties may also deliver cookies to your computer or mobile device for the purpose of tracking your online behaviors across non-affiliated websites and delivering targeted advertisements either on this Site or on other websites. If you would like to opt-out of having participating entities collect your online behavior for advertising purposes when you are browsing websites, click here for a “Website Opt Out.” You will be directed to an industry-developed website that allows you to choose whether each listed entity may collect and use data for interest-based advertising purposes. It may be that some of the third parties that collect interest-based information on this Site do not participate in the Website Opt Out, in which case the best way to avoid the third-party tracking of your online behaviors may be through your browser settings and deletion of cookies.
The Website Opt Out described above only works on websites. To opt-out of having participating entities track your behaviors for advertising purposes when you are using our mobile apps, download and use the Digital Advertising Alliance’s “App Choices” app. As with the Website Opt Out, the “Mobile App Opt Out” prevents tracking only by participating entities.
Please note that the Website Opt Out and Mobile App Opt Out are device-specific. If you wish to opt-out from having interest-based information collected by participating entities across all devices, you need to take the steps outlined above from each device.
with Other Users of this Site
For example, if you visit the profile or click on an ad of a Pro member, we may notify the Pro member of your interest so he/she can reach out to you. We may also use UGC you submit for advertising campaigns and other promotions. We may or may not use your name in connection with such use, and we may or may not seek your consent before using the content for such purposes. You should have no expectation of privacy with respect to UGC you submit on or through this Site.
with Third-Party Social Media Platforms
We may provide functionality on this Site that allows you to automatically post information about the actions you take on this Site to a third-party social media platform (such as Facebook or Twitter). If you choose to take advantage of this functionality, people with access to your profile on the third-party platform may be able to see the actions you have taken—for example, the items you have purchased. Thus, you should have no expectation of privacy in those actions. Further, if you choose to link your profile on this Site with an account on a third-party social media platform, we may share the information in your profile with that third-party platform. We may share or provide some of your information, such as an email address, to third-party social media platforms so that we can identify you in order to engage with you on those platforms.
In addition to the cookies Toledo REIA delivers to your computer or mobile device through this Site, certain third parties may deliver cookies to you for a variety of reasons. For example, we may use Google Analytics, including the following Google Analytics Advertising Features: Adsense, Adwords, Doubleclick, Remarketing. To learn more about Google Analytics, click here. Please note that the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on does not prevent information from being sent to Toledo REIA.
with Our Affiliates & Business Partners
From time to time, we may share your information with selected third parties for their own marketing purposes. For example, we may partner with third parties to sponsor contests or other promotions, and we may share with these third parties the information you submit to us to participate in the contest or take advantage of the promotion. Before doing so, however, we may offer you the opportunity to “opt-out” or “opt-in,” as required by applicable law.
in Aggregate or De-identified Form.
We use information collected through this Site to create a compiled, aggregate view of usage patterns. We may share aggregated information with third parties so they can better understand our user base. We may also share with third parties information about how particular individuals use this Site, but only on a de-identified basis (“Individualized Data”). Individualized Data is not personally identifiable, but it does reflect the usage patterns of a particular Site user, as opposed to Site users collectively. We may provide basic demographic information (gender and age) in conjunction with providing Individualized Data. Third parties typically use this information for analytical purposes and to market their own products and services. It is possible that third parties will attempt to “re-identify” de-identified data, and you should know that this is possible using external points of reference.

Your information may be transferred to successor organization if, for example, we transfer the ownership or operation of this Site to another organization or if we merge with another organization. If such a transfer occurs, the successor organization’s use of your information will still be subject to this Policy and the privacy preferences you have expressed to us.
