3. Overview: How We Protect your Privacy
Buyside is an information service that combines data you provide with data from third parties and publically-available data. We can then report information back to you that helps you rent and sell properties.
All non-confidential information entered at Buyside is used by Buyside and its affiliates for the purpose of facilitating Buyside’s Site and Products, including the buyer management and listing process.
Email messages may be reviewed for compliance and security.
All buyer contact information is confidential and is never shared by us on the public site or to any subscribers of Buyside, rather it is only accessible by the agent listing that specific buyer (“Buyer Agent”), the Buyer Agent’s business associates, and anyone with whom the Buyer Agent chooses to share the buyer contact information.
Credit card information is never stored by Buyside. After a transaction is processed by Buyside, all credit card information is deleted from Buyside’s servers. Credit card information will be stored by credit card processing companies, banks and other financial institutions.
Buyside uses 128 bit data encryption and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to better protect online transactions.
Buyside data is protected by and complies with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security requirements of Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Discover, although we do not store credit card information.
We don’t share your Personal Information with third parties for marketing purposes, but we do share Non-Personal Information with third parties for marketing purposes.
Account information is password-protected. Please keep your password safe.
We are not responsible for, nor have any control over, the privacy policies of any third party websites, and encourage all users to read the privacy policies of each and every website visited.

4. Data We Collect
For each Organization, Administrator and Member, we collect Personal Information, including name, user name and password, and contact information such as email address and telephone number. Each of these different types of information is used to provide the Buyside Site and Products. Personal Information is also used to authenticate users, for service-related communications, and as an integral component of the Products. In some cases, contact information will be sent to third party syndication partners who have the ability to anonymize email addresses.
We sometimes collect email address for purposes such as sending self-publishing and confirmation emails, authenticating user accounts, providing subscription email services, registering for forums, and other communications.
We sometimes collect your phone number for account authentication purposes, and may transmit it to a third party service for tele-robotic verification.
Buyside does not store credit card information. Credit card transactions are transmitted to a financial gateway, and we endeavor to protect the security of your payment information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.
We may collect Personal Information if you provide it to us, or if you contact us directly. Please do not post any Personal Information in any correspondences or emails that you expect to keep private.
Our web logs collect standard web log entries for each page served, including your IP address, page URL, and timestamp. Web logs help us to diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Buyside Site, and to otherwise provide our service to you.
We allow third-party companies to collect certain Non-Personal Information and other anonymous information when you visit our Site. These companies may use Non-Personal Information during your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or a third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice, you can visit www.networkadvertising.org.

We store all buyer listings in our database. Even after “deletion” from our database, we continue to store buyer listings, and they may be archived elsewhere. Our web logs and other records are stored indefinitely.
Active Members can access and update their account information through the account homepage.
All user Organization, Administrator and Member contained within the Products remain the Organization’s property. We will continue to make that data available to the Organization as long as the Organization is a customer, and make that data available to the Organization upon the termination of its relationship with Buyside.
If at some point Buyside sells all or a portion of its assets, or merges with another entity, all Personal Information and other data are assets that may be transferred or acquired by a third party. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify all affected Organizations, Administrators and Members of any such transaction, and each will have the opportunity to retrieve their Personal Information and cease usage of the Site and Products. After such a transaction, the third party that becomes the custodian of the Personal Information would have the right to continue using the Personal Information solely as set forth in this Privacy Policy or any policy that may replace it where the new policy is instituted in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Policy.

6. Spam
We do not tolerate spam. To report spam or spoof emails to Buyside, please forward the email to Spam@GetBuyside.com. You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our Terms of Service or Service Agreement.

We recommend that you refrain from divulging your login identification or password to anyone. We will not ask you for your login identification or password during an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email.

We use cookies to help you personalize your online experience, to enable us to provide quality Products through each Site and to provide general statistics regarding use of each Site and Product.
The purpose of a cookie is to tell a web server that you have returned to a specific page.

The Sites and the Products are hosted and managed in the United States of America, and are subject to United States laws, which may be different than laws in other countries.
