We utilize reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information against unauthorized access, modification, or destruction. For example, we utilize Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Transport Layer Security (TLS), or similar encryption technology when sensitive data is transmitted over the Internet, and use firewalls to help prevent external access into our network. However, unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while we strive to protect Personal Information you submit to us, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. OpenHouse disclaims any liability, financial or otherwise, associated with the loss or misappropriation of your Personal Information due to authorized access that is beyond OpenHouse’s control.

Every time you use the Website (e.g., access a webpage) we collect Personal Information and non-Personal Information (discussed above) regarding that use. For example, to improve our Services, we collect how, when, and which parts of the Website or its features you use. Also, we may use your device’s unique identifier (UDID) or other unique identifiers to assist us in collecting and analyzing this data.
To assist us in the collection and storage of the foregoing information, the Website may use “cookies” and/or other technologies or files, including but not limited to mobile advertising IDs, web beacons and/or analytics tools from third parties to identify or otherwise to monitor how visitors make use of the Website and to gather operational and behavioral data through your interactions with the Website and related applications, and in communications by email, chat, and/or text message. A “Cookie” is a small amount of data a website operator, or a third party whose content is embedded in that website, may store in your web browser and that the website operator or, as applicable, the third party, can access when you visit the website. A Cookie may also refer to web-browser-based storage provided by Adobe’s Flash plugin (a “Flash Cookie”). A web beacon, pixel or tag is a small, usually-transparent image placed on a web page that allows the operator of that image, which may be the operator of the website you visit or a third party, to read or write a Cookie.
When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Services, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by us.
Implementing analytics tools allows us to evaluate and gauge the ways in which users interact with advertising and marketing materials, digital communications, applications, our products/services, and our web properties. Typically, third party providers deliver these services and may use additional technologies to collect information and data related to your website visits and usage of our web properties.
Additionally, we may use IP address information to count and track aggregate visits to the Website, to help diagnose problems with our server or our services, and to administer the Website.
Cookie management tools provided by your browser may not affect Flash Cookies. More information about managing Flash Cookies is available here. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for your local browser storage, please refer to the end user documentation for your browser.
The Website may include links to webpages on third party websites, such as OpenHouse’s social media pages, that we think will be of interest to you and are not operated by OpenHouse. These third party websites have separate data collection and privacy practices independent from ours, and OpenHouse is not responsible for the policies or activities of such other websites, including the handling of information you provide, once you leave the Website by linking to another site. Please contact such third parties directly if you have questions about their privacy policies.
Transparency and Choice; Do Not Track Signals If you would like to review the current details of your Personal Information or the scope and status of the Personal Information submitted by you, or if you would like us to change, or to discontinue use of, your Personal Information, please contact us at: email@example.com.We will try to locate and provide you with your Personal Information and give you the opportunity to correct this data, if it is inaccurate, or to delete it, at your request. But, in either case, we may need to retain it for legal reasons or for legitimate business purposes. However, we (and you) are not able to control information that you have already shared with other users or made available to third parties through the Website.
We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected, or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backups), or relate to information that is not associated with your Personal Information. In any case, where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
Please be aware that if you request us to delete your Personal Information, you may not be able to continue to use the Services. Also, even if you request that we delete your Personal Information, we may need to retain certain information for a limited period of time to satisfy our legal, audit and/or dispute resolution requirements.
We support the development and implementation of a standard “do not track” browser feature that provides customers with control over the collection and use of information about their web-browsing activities. Once a standardized “do not track” feature is released, we intend to adhere to the browser settings accordingly.
You can opt out of receiving marketing e-mails from us by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the e-mails. Please note that it may take up to ten (10) business days for your opt-out request to be processed. Also, even if you opt out of marketing e-mails, we may continue to send you certain account-related e-mails, such as notices about your account and confirmations of transactions you have requested.
