California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf.  If you are a California resident, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 400 R Street, Sacramento, CA 95814, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210. Other States may provide similar avenues for lodging complaints. Please check with your State's consumer protection authority.

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously. Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.  Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:

  • On our Privacy Policy Page

Users are able to change their personal information:

  • By logging in to their account

How does our site handle do not track signals?

We will still collect and use your browsing data to improve security, to provide content, services and recommendations and to generate reporting statistics.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we allow third party behavioral tracking.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify the users via email

  • Within 7 business days of the date upon which we become aware of any such breach

We will notify the users via in site notification

  • Within 7 business days of the date upon which we become aware of any such breach

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
  • Process investment orders and to send information and updates pertaining to investment orders.
  • We may also send you additional information related to your product and/or service.
  • Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.

To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:

  • NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
  • Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.

Changing or Removing Information; Opting Out

Applicable law places certain obligations on investors to keep information current, including, for example, Form W-9 Information. It is particularly important for you to keep your financial information current and to report to us any material change in this Information. We use this information to provide you with investment opportunities and financial distributions due to you as an equity or debt holder in an investment opportunity in which you have invested through our website. Without current information, you receive information in error or that you are not eligible to receive or act on. To allow appropriate control over PII, you can access your account (after supplying your user name and password) to change or update discretionary information that you have previously submitted. You are entitled to decline to participate in certain Services and to decline to give us permission (or to revoke that permission in your discretion) to use your PII for certain purposes. We provide you with the ability to opt-out of receiving communications concerning, or being included in, these activities. To opt-out of Services for which an opt-out right is available, please email us at support@realized1031.com. We can also answer questions or assist if you contact us as provided herein. You will not be allowed to opt–out of required notices or other legal and related notices concerning your relationship to the website. If you request, we will remove your name and all other PII from our databases. It may be impossible to remove this information completely, due to IRS and regulatory reporting requirements, ownership in an investment opportunity in which you have invested through our website and the rights thereof, data backups and records of deletions. If you request deletion of your information, you will be unable to use certain features of the website and any associated Services. You may not remove de-identified, anonymous, or aggregate data from our databases.

Third Party Access to PII

We may employ or retain other companies (“Service Providers”) to perform functions on our behalf, such as maintaining the website, providing services related to the website, collecting information, responding to and sending e-mail or other functions to facilitate our business, broker-dealer services, and escrow services. We may need to share your PII with Service Providers. We will share with our Service Providers only that information necessary for them to perform their functions, and we require them to commit to refrain from using your PII for any other purpose. We may reveal your PII to attorneys, private investigator organizations or law enforcement agencies if we believe (i) that you are in risk of harm from another, (ii) that you are harming or interfering (or will harm or interfere) with others, or (iii) that you are violating (either intentionally or unintentionally) our Terms of Use and Service or are otherwise violating legal rights. We will take all reasonable steps to disclose only so much of this Information as is necessary, limiting the disclosure, for example (and where applicable), to contact information only. We will reveal your PII to the extent we reasonably believe we are required to do so by applicable law. If we receive legal process calling for the disclosure of your PII, we will attempt to notify you at the email address you supplied during registration within a reasonable amount of time before we respond to the request, unless such notification is not permitted. We are entitled to transfer to a third party information we collect, including any PII, in connection with a sale of all or substantially all of our assets, provided the acquiring third party has agreed to safeguard your PII with protections that in all material respects are the same as, or more protective than, those set out in this Privacy Policy.

Anonymous, Aggregate Information

We use anonymous information to analyze the effectiveness of our website, to improve our Services and for other similar purposes. In addition, from time to time, we may undertake or commission statistical and other summary analyses of the general behavior and characteristics of users participating in our Services and the characteristics of visitors to our website and may share anonymous information with third parties, including advertisers. Anonymous information provided to third parties will not allow anyone to identify you or determine anything personal about you. We may collect anonymous information through features of the software that supports our Services, through cookies, and through other means. We may automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser, including your IP address (the Internet address of your computer), your computer's name, the type and version of your web browser, referrer addresses, and other generally-accepted log information. We may also record page views and other general statistical and tracking information, which will be aggregated with that of other users in order to understand how our website is being used, and for security and monitoring purposes. None of this data contains PII. We may include cookies on our website and use them to recognize you when you return to our website. You may set your browser so that it does not accept cookies. However, cookies must be enabled on your web browser if you wish to access certain personalized features of our Services. We may compile records of visits with respect to certain pages or information that are available on our website. We might also compile information and other metrics concerning Investors' interactions with respect to our Services and other features of our website. We might compile site metrics of a page of interest or other data. Such records do not contain any PII, and all such data and information is subject to our Privacy Policy. We may use "pixel tags" to tell us what parts of our website have been visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches users perform on our website. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format users can read, and they inform us whether emails have been opened, to help ensure that our messages are of interest to our Investors. None of this data includes PII, and you can "opt-out" of receiving these types of emails from us. If any PII is collected using such tools, it will be subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
