HOA Online Resource collects information in several ways from different parts of your community web site.
Some personal information is gathered when you register to access secure areas of the site. During registration to request access to secure sections of the site, we ask for your name, address, phone number and email address. This information is used solely to assist you in interacting with this website by automatically filling in certain forms (such as the classified ad posting form) with your information so that you don't have to continually re-enter it. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to HOA Online Resource - you have a username and are able to take full advantage of the many offerings of the secure sections of your association website.
In addition to registration we may ask you for personal information at other times, including (but not limited to) when you update your listing, place ads or take advantage of the other features of the HOA Online Resource program. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
How your information is used
The primary goal of the HOA Online Resource website in collecting personal information is to provide you and your community, with a customized experience and to assist your navigation throughout the resident portion of the website.
Who is collecting your information
When you are asked for personal information regarding your HOA Online Resource registration, you are sharing that information with the site administrator and the Association, unless it is specifically stated otherwise.
When you include personal information on the HOA Online Resource Classifieds, you are sharing that information with the HOA Online Resource Classifieds alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. However, some activities will, by their very nature, result in your personal information being revealed to other users of the HOA Online Resource Classifieds. For example, when you enter personal information on the ad posting form, this information will generally be included in your ad, unless specifically stated otherwise.
With whom your information may be shared
As a general rule, HOA Online Resource will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below.
HOA Online Resource may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms of Service of HOA Online Resource or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights or property of HOA Online Resource, other users of HOA Online Resource, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. HOA Online Resource may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.
What choices are available to you regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of the HOA Online Resource website, but you will not be able to access areas or use features that require registration or association membership.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those services of the HOA Online Resource Classifieds that require registration in order to participate. You can still use most of the features of the HOA Online Resource website even if you do not accept cookies.
HOA Online Resource does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to use a particular service.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, HOA Online Resource cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
What else you should know about your online privacy
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example in ads that you post or through email - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
