Use of Email Tools
You may NOT use the Email The Broker, Copy Email Address, or other email services that we offer to send spam (i.e. unsolicited commercial email) or otherwise send content that would violate TenSource's Terms and Conditions. We may monitor, track or save the use of this feature, but will be under no obligation to monitor, track or save these email messages sent from these tools.
Though TenSource makes every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request served on our website and to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.
TenSource shares member information in the following areas on the site: Home Page, Listing Service, Email Alerts and Professional Directory. When a member enters a tenant requirement or property in the Listing Service, listing contact information is also entered. During this process, the listing submitter is able to view other members' contact information when he adds another contact beside himself to the listing. In addition, members searching TenSource can view contact information (name, email and phone number) when they view a property listing profile. TenSource allows users to share contact information with one another via its Email Alerts service. With Email Alerts users can save their property search criteria or tenant search criteria to have information about properties or tenants that match the specified criteria emailed to them. Unless required by law as detailed in this section TenSource does not share individual user search activity information and such activity information remains private to the individual user and to TenSource. Professional Profile users agree to share their contact information and allow all TenSource users to view their contact information via the TenSource Professional Directory or via links made available to users on a listing or in an email. TenSource users who do not opt out of the Professional Directory service during registration with TenSource (or anytime thereafter) also agree to share their contact information via the TenSource Professional Directory.
TenSource shares information with its partners for the purpose of providing related services in which we deem our users have interest. The use that TenSource's partners make of customer information will not exceed TenSource's use of the data. Key billing information (such as credit card number, expiration date and dollar amount) gathered from users making online purchases of products or services is shared with Stripe, our credit card processing partner, in order to authorize charges to the credit card.
TenSource does not rent or lease user information to any third party, except as disclosed here. From time to time, TenSource may obtain information (such as electronic mail addresses) from third party providers. It is our goal to only contact individuals who we believe may have a legitimate business interest in TenSource based on their membership or participation in other organizations or web sites, and who have indicated a willingness to be contacted for this purpose. While TenSource endeavors to work with other sites and companies with a similar respect for user privacy, TenSource cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other sites.
