Introduction

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy.  This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the website goldendealnetwork.com (our “Website”) and use the services (the “Services”) of the real estate agents who are registered users of our Website (the “Agents”), and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information.

This policy applies to any information that we collect on the Website, including any information in any e-mails, posts, texts and other electronic messages between you and the Website and any information about you transferred to the Website from other websites or mobile or desktop applications.  Except as expressly provided below, this policy does not apply to any information that we collect by any other means, including offline collection.

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it.  If you do not agree with our policies and practices, you can choose not to use our Website.  By accessing or using our Website, you agree to this privacy policy.  This policy may change from time to time.  Your continued use of the Website after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

We collect several types of information from and about users of our Website, including information by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number (“Personal Information”). The Personal Information that we collect on or through our Website may include information that you provide by registering to use our Website, using the Services, posting material, requesting further Services or reporting a problem with our Website.  We will also retain records and copies of your correspondence (including e-mail addresses), if you contact us.

Payments will be processed by Braintree Payments, a PayPal company, a third party payment processor.  We will collect certain Personal Information on our Website required for Braintree Payments to process payments, including credit card numbers, security codes and other financial information.  All such information will be transferred directly to Braintree Payments and not retained, stored or used by us.  All such transferred information is subject to the privacy policy of Braintree Payments rather than this policy.

Users may provide some Personal Information directly to Agents who are providing Services.  Agents are third parties who are not our contractors, employees or agents, and we do not supervise, direct, or control any Agent’s provision of Services.  Accordingly, while Agents are contractually obligated to comply with this policy in their storage, use and disclosure of any Personal Information that you provide to them, we cannot ensure that Agents will always comply with their obligations.

You also may provide information to be posted, published or displayed on public areas of the Website, or transmitted to other users of the Website or third parties (collectively, “User Contributions”).  Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk.  We cannot control the actions of other users of the Website with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions.  Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
