Privacy Policy

In this Website Privacy Policy, Seashine Real Property Services, Inc. or “Seashine” or “we”, provide information about how we use, collect and transfer personally identifiable data from website visitors to www.realhomeownership.com, and other websites that we operate and for which we provide a link to this Privacy Policy (collectively the “Website”).

Scope

This Privacy Policy covers only data collected through the Website and not any other data collection or processing, including, without limitation, data collection practices of other websites to which we link or data that we or our subsidiaries or affiliates collect offline or through websites, products, or services that do not display a direct link to this Privacy Policy.

Collection, Use, and Sharing of Data

Seashine collects information from visitors of the Website, including the domain names, IP and MAC addresses, browser types, and unique device identifiers of such visitors. This information includes the number of visits, average time spent on the Website, pages viewed and similar information. This information may also include usage information about the page-by-page paths you take as you browse through the Website. Seashine uses this information to measure the use of the Website and to develop ideas to improve the content of the Website. For more information regarding our use of this information, please see the sections on “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies” and “Analytics” below.

There are times, however, when we may need additional information from you, including personal information that may be used to identify you. This information includes items such as your name, address, telephone number, and email address. The information we collect is typically used by us to respond to your inquiry, process a transaction or allow you to access specific account/profile information. We may also use your personal information to: improve the Website or Seashine products and services; customize your experience with the Website, or to serve you specific content that is relevant to you; contact you regarding your use of the Website and, in our discretion, changes to our policies; provide you with Website-related notices; send you advertisements for Seashine products and services; and for purposes disclosed elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, at the time you provide your personal information, or with your consent. If you choose to share any personal information with us, we will use it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We collect nonpublic personal information about you from the following sources:

  • Information we receive from you on Website forms and in other communications;
  • Information about your transactions with us, our affiliated companies, or others; and
  • Information we receive from third-parties (if we receive personal information from a third party source and/or if we combine the information we receive from these third party sources with your personal information, we will treat that information as personal information. We are not responsible for the accuracy of the information provided by third-parties or how such third-parties collect, use and share such information).

Prospective applicants for the REAL Homeownership Program will be asked to provide personal information including name, current address, phone number(s), email address, social security number (SSN) or individual tax identification number (ITIN), financial data, employment data, date of birth, residence history, military status and other information necessary to process your application and to evaluate program eligibility. Furthermore, prospective applicants will be asked to provide the names and dates of birth for all prospective occupants including children.

We may share personal information with non-affiliated third-parties as necessary for us to provide the product or services requested, as permitted by law, with third party service providers so that they may perform certain services for us, or as otherwise specified herein. Such disclosures may include situations in which we are required to respond to subpoenas or other legal processes, or are responding to the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation.

We may store your information indefinitely, including the period after which any Customer relationship has ceased. Such information may be used for any internal purpose, such as quality control efforts or customer analysis.

We may, in our sole discretion, share with third-parties, information that is not associated with your name or identity, such as Website usage information, non-personally identifiable demographic information, and aggregate user statistics.

We may also provide all of the types of nonpublic personal information listed above to one or more of our affiliated companies.  Affiliated companies include but are not limited to the Seashine Financial, LLC, Seashine Owner Co, LLC, Seashine Asset Management, Inc., and Seashine Capital Management, LLC.  From time-to-time, Seashine may become affiliated with other companies or trusts associated with the Acquisition Lease Program.

It is possible that Seashine, its subsidiaries, affiliates, joint venture companies, or any combination of them, could merge with or be acquired by another legal entity. In such event, or in the event of any other proposed or actual purchase, sale (including a liquidation, realization, foreclosure or repossession), lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of Seashine or of any of the business or assets or shares of Seashine or a subsidiary or division thereof, Seashine may share your information with third-parties. You will have the opportunity to opt out of any such transfer if, in our discretion, the new entity plans to handle your information in a way that differs materially from this Privacy Policy.  Furthermore, we may also provide all the information we collect, as described above, to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf, on behalf of our affiliated companies or to other financial institutions with which we or our affiliated companies have joint marketing agreements. In some circumstances, we will request your consent to share your information with nonaffiliated third parties, such as lenders, realtors, and insurers, so that they may offer you products and services that may be of interest to you.

These third-parties use cookies, web beacons, pixels, embedded scripts and other, similar technologies to automatically collect information about your Website use, report Website trends, and help us compile Website metrics.  This Privacy Policy does not cover any use of information that such third-parties themselves may have collected from you.

Certain functionality on the Website may permit interactions that you initiate between the Website and a third party website or service (“Social Features”). If you choose to use Social Features, the information you post or provide access to may be publicly displayed by the provider of the Social Feature that you use. Similarly, if you post information on a third party platform that references the Website (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with Seashine in a Tweet or status update), your post may be published on the Website in accordance with the terms of the third party website or service. Also, both Seashine and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Website and the third party site or service. The information we collect in connection with Social Features is subject to this Privacy Policy. The information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party’s privacy practices.

We provide information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, and other businesses or persons for the purposes of processing such information on our behalf, some or all of which may store your information on servers located outside of the United States.

California Privacy Rights

When California customers provide personal information to a business, they have the right to request certain disclosures if that business shares personal information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Once per the calendar year the customer may request that the business provides a list of companies with which it shares personal information for those companies’ direct marketing purposes and a list of the categories of personal information that the business shares. Seashine does not generally sell or share personal information with third parties.  However, if we engage in such activities, you may request information about our compliance with this law by contacting us at:
