This Policy governs the information practices of Growinestate.com and its affiliates or subsidiaries (“we,” “us,” and “our”) about your use of the Services offered on Growinestate.com’s websites, products, tools, promotions, and any other services that refer to this Policy. You authorize Growin Estate, its corporate parents, affiliates, and partners to send you telemarketing promotions through automated telephone dialing systems, artificial or prerecorded voices, and text messages for products or services that may be of interest to you, beyond those for which you have already applied. However, you are not required to sign this agreement to purchase any property, goods, or services.
As we update and expand our offerings, we will continue to assess and revise this Policy, and any changes will be posted on our website. If there are significant changes to this Policy, we will provide you with notice as required by law. Your continued use of the Services signifies your acceptance of the terms of the updated Policy.
We collect information through various means, including actively and passively, such as when you directly provide information to us or when we collect information from your browser or device.
2. How we use your information
The following outlines the purposes for which we may use the information we collect from and about you:
We may combine information collected from different parts of our services or from our affiliates and non-affiliated third parties, and use it in accordance with this policy. We may also aggregate or de-identify information for research, analytics, and marketing purposes, and share it with third parties.
We may communicate with you through various channels, including SMS, Whatsapp, LinkedIn, Facebook, emails, and apps, and may deliver telemarketing promotions for products or services in addition to those you’re applying for, but that may be of interest to you. You’re not required to sign any agreement as a condition of purchasing any property, goods, or services.
Consent varies depending on the type and nature of the conversation we have with you, and we may need your express permission to send you certain types of messages. Conversational SMS/text messaging is a one-on-one two-way conversation between us and our existing customers or known contacts with an existing business relationship, and we may not need your explicit permission to engage in such conversations. Informational messaging occurs when you give us your phone number and agree to be contacted for informational purposes, and we require your express permission to send you such messages. Promotional texts directly promote, market, and sell our business or its services, and we need your express permission to send you such messages.
We may include links or buttons in our text messages to prompt you to take certain actions. Message and data rates may apply, and you may opt-out at any time by texting “STOP” to us.
We may send you SMS text messages based on your activity or engagement, and you may opt-out by expressing your lack of interest or texting a keyword like “STOP” or “UNSUBSCRIBE.” We may only send promotional text messages to contacts who have received them through inbound queries on our website or other advertising pages used for lead generation. We can only attempt to contact consumers when a service is requested or available.
3. Disclosing Your Information
Under certain circumstances, we may need to disclose or share your information with non-affiliated third parties. These circumstances include:
4. Online Analytics and Advertising
5. Notice regarding Do Not Track (DNT)
The Do Not Track (DNT) feature is a privacy preference that can be set by users in certain web browsers. We currently do not acknowledge or react to DNT signals initiated by browsers because the Internet industry is still working to define the precise meaning of DNT, what it takes to comply with DNT, and a unified approach to handling DNT.
6. Managing Your Data
7. Consent to Data Transfer
By using our Services, you consent to the processing of your personal data by us in the United States and other countries where our computer systems are based. The data protection and privacy regulations in these jurisdictions may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. You also agree to the transfer of your information to these jurisdictions, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection required in your jurisdiction of residence, and to the processing of your data as described in this Policy.
8. Children’s Privacy
Our Services are not intended for children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from children under 13, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as possible, as required by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
We have implemented administrative, technical, and physical measures to protect against unauthorized access, use, or alteration of your information. However, we cannot guarantee that these measures will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your information since no electronic transmissions can be entirely secure. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you must protect access to your devices to prevent unauthorized access to the Services. If you suspect unauthorized access to your account, you must contact us immediately at Info@growinestate.com. We are not responsible for unauthorized access through information or devices obtained from you by others.
10. Third-Party Links and Services
Our Services may contain links to third-party websites, applications, and services. However, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these sites and services. We encourage you to review their privacy policies when you visit them.
11. Your California Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, you have the right to request information once a year regarding our disclosure of your “personal information” to third parties for direct marketing purposes under California law. To make such a request, please email us at Info@growinEstate.com with “Privacy Support” in the subject line.
Opt-out Right for California Consumers
Starting on January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) granted Californians with data privacy rights, such as the right to opt out of having their personal information “sold” according to the CCPA’s definition. We provide information about the CCPA’s definition of “sale” in our State Privacy Disclosures.
We recommend that you carefully review this Policy before using or submitting any information through or in connection with the Services. By accessing any part of the Services, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information as set out in this Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Policy, please refrain from using the Services. We will regularly review and revise this Policy as we expand and update the Services and offerings, and we will post any changes here. If we make significant changes to this Policy, we will provide you with notice as required by law. Your continued use of the Services constitutes acceptance of the updated Policy.
