SITE POLICIES, MODIFICATION, AND SEVERABILITY
PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
Rental Househunter has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control, including protecting information behind a firewall, encrypting your personal information so that it cannot be read by a third party during transmission.
Any payments made for Featured or other Rental Listings on Rental Househunter are processed via Google Checkout. Rental Househunter NEVER stores or ever sees your credit card number. These payments made via Google Checkout are highly secure using 128 bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption.
To further secure your personal information, we require you to create a password when you establish an account with us. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account. We encourage you to use a password that is not easily guessed (i.e., don't use your name or your spouse's name). Keep your password secret; do not share it with anyone. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer.
Always remember to exit from your account at the end of each session or when you decide to step away from your computer. Anyone who accesses your computer after you have signed in but before you have signed out can access your account. As an extra safeguard for your information, your session will automatically be terminated if your computer goes through a period of inactivity longer than 25 minutes. You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to immediately notify Rental Househunter of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security. Rental Househunter cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this.
If you forget your password, you can click the "Forget your Password?" link on the login page. You will be asked to enter your email address and to provide the correct answer to the Security Question you selected when registering. Your password will be sent to the email address under which your Rental Househunter account has been registered.
