Privacy Policy

All terminology used in our Terms and Conditions of Use are incorporated herein. We are serious about protecting the privacy of our Users.  By providing information to us when subscribing, posting Listings, sending inquiries to FIF, its Users or Advertisers, and/or otherwise using the Site, you expressly agree to this Privacy Policy.  IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THIS SITE. 

Nonpublic information provided to us will not be shared, published, traded, sold, rented, bartered or in any other way provided to another party outside of FIF except: (1) for legal purposes, (2) to our affiliates, (3) to nonaffiliated third parties utilized by FIF for operational purposes, and (4) as described below.

Our primary purpose in collecting your personal data is to provide you with the services you requested.  In order to process any type of correspondence concerning a Property, we need to know all or some of the information listed on the listing application form and/or the rental inquiry form. You agree that we may use your personal data for the following purposes:

  1. For the services or support you request.
  2. To verify information for accuracy.
  3. To promote services or special offers.
  4. To contact you about your account and your use of our services.
  5. To prevent potentially illegal activity.

We may disclose your personal data to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, or respond to claims that a listing or other content violates the right of others. In all cases, such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations to legal or government officials in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation, alleged illegal activity or other governmental request, provided that we will require a court order, subpoena or similar legal procedure except when we believe in good faith that disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm, financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.

Users submitting inquiries to Advertisers on the Site should be aware of the following: 

  1. You have the option of providing your email address and/or phone number to the Advertiser as a means of contact as well as additional information in the comments section. This information will be visible to the Advertiser and FIF. You should not provide any information you do not wish either party to have, such as banking or credit card information.  
  2. Information provided in an inquiry is available for review by the Advertiser to whom the inquiry is addressed and to our employees. While the content of these inquiries is not shared with any other party by FIF, we cannot guarantee that an Advertiser will not share it. Furthermore, we may, from time to time, use third party e-mail servers to send and track receipt of the inquiry e-mails, and analyze the pattern of inquiry usage reported by these third party tracking systems.

Advertisers listing their Properties on the Site should be aware of the following:

  1. You have the option of publishing your email address and/or phone number on the site making it visible to anyone using the site. Doing so may invite unwanted phone calls or emails and we recommend that inquiries regarding rentals be routed through our site to help protect your privacy.
  2. If you receive an unsolicited e-mail that requests personal information or that asks you to verify or confirm your personal information by clicking on a link, that e-mail was possibly sent by someone trying to unlawfully obtain your information.  Do not provide the information or click on the link.
  3. All information received from you on your Listing Application is kept confidential and stored in our secure database.  We will retain your personal data only as long as is necessary for the purposes to which you consent under the Terms and Conditions of Use and this Privacy Policy, or as is required by applicable law, and then we will delete it.
