Your access provider assigns an IP address
to your computer when you use the Internet. We log each IP
address that accesses the site, along with referring/destination
URLs. We use this data, as well as other data in our databases,
to analyze site and user behavior, troubleshoot technical
problems, resolve disputes, address complaints and prepare
aggregated reports that we share with others.
You may subscribe to emails or newsletters by providing only
your email address and password, which we use to create a
username and account for you. For privacy purposes, an email-only
account acts like a registered account. However, you cannot
use some site functionality until you complete your registration.
When you register, you provide us with some personal data
(including your email address). We use registration and member
data for many purposes, including emailing you newsletters
and alerts. In most cases, you can configure your account
to turn these emails on and off. However, some administrative
emails (such as emails about user agreement changes) are not
optional while you have an account.
Content and Ratings.
You can publish reviews and rate others’ reviews. Your
member name is automatically displayed with reviews you publish.
We can republish your content as described
in the user agreement. We publish rental companies’
ratings and use them to develop aggregate ratings.
If you send emails through our site, your email will include
your email address and any personal message you include. However,
these emails aren't private communications. We do not retain,
in any easily-retrievable way, the addresses you are emailing.

the user agreement.
We may ask for your feedback through a survey, which we treat
like other business records.

We may disclose data about you to the government if we are
required to do so or if we think the disclosure is appropriate;
and you authorize these disclosures. We may also disclose
data about you in connection with actual or potential lawsuits

Limits on Our Abilities.
We might inadvertently use or disclose your data in ways inconsistent
with this statement. For example, a temporary software glitch
could lead to public display of your personal data despite
your preferences otherwise. We might also make ad hoc uses
of your data in ways not mentioned here. In these anomalous
situations, your sole remedy is that we will try to rectify
the anomaly as soon as we can.
We use industry-standard security protocols, such as (if and
where appropriate) firewalls and restrictions on which employees
can access user data. However, perfect security does not exist
on the Internet. Also, in theory third parties can intercept
Internet transmissions containing your personal data, and
we don't control the privacy/security of transmissions to
and from the site while in transit.
