We collect information from you only when you register on our site or initiate a transaction. Information includes your name, address, e-mail address, phone number and financial account information. This information is required for us to process transactions, issue a new password if you forget or lose your password, protect you against fraud, and to contact you should the need arise in administering your account. To activate a property, we require that you fax us a copy of your drivers license or another valid form of identification along with a voided check for the checking account that you intend to use to collect rental payments for the property with. You will be able to add the property during registration, however the property will not be activated until we receive these documents.
Please note that any person who pays you or receives payment from you through our service will not see any of your personally identifiable information, including financial account information.
You may visit our site anonymously without registration or use of our service.
