Privacy Policy

Thank you for using Decoms Properties!

Our mission is to help you find the properties and apartments of your dreams in a few seconds. To do that we use our geolocation mapping feature to root out your ideal villa, townhouse apartment, and direct link to the owners. We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it, and what choices you have about it. Because we’re an internet company, some of the concepts below are a little technical, but we’ve tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way. We welcome your questions and comments questions and comments questions comments on this policy.

Privacy Policy

We manage the collection, use, and security of your personal information according to our Privacy Policy, incorporated herein by reference. By using this Site you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as set forth in the Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to access and disclose the information you submit to the Site if required to do so by law or if we have a reasonable, good-faith belief that doing so is necessary for (i) responding to requests for customer service, (ii) addressing fraud, security, or technical issues, (iii) protecting the rights, property, and safety of Decoms Properties, its users, and the public, (iv) responding to legal claims and processes, or (v) enforcing these Terms, including investigating potential violations.

We collect information in a few different ways

1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it

When you sign up for or use Decoms Properties you voluntarily share certain information including your name, email address, phone number, photos, comments, and any other information you give us. You can also choose to share your precise location using your device settings or through photos. We will still use your IP address, which is used to approximate your location, even if you don’t choose to share your precise location. You will also have the option to share other information about yourself such as your gender, age, and preferred language. If you connect your Facebook, Google, or other third-party accounts to Decoms Properties, we use information from those accounts (such as your friends or contacts) to improve your Decoms Properties experience. This is dependent on the privacy policies or settings for those accounts.

2. We also get technical information when you use Decoms Properties

When you use a website, mobile application, or other internet services, certain internet and electronic network activity information gets created and logged automatically. This is also true when you use Decoms Properties. Here are some of the types of information we collect:

  • Log data. When you use Decoms Properties, our servers record information (“log data”), including information that your browser automatically sends whenever you visit a website, or that your mobile app automatically sends when you’re using it. This log data includes your Internet Protocol address (which we use to infer your approximate location), the address of and activity on websites you visit that incorporate Decoms Properties features (like the “Save” button—more details below), searches, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used Decoms Properties, cookie data, and device data. You can learn more about the log data we collect here.
  • Cookie data. We also use “cookies” (small text files sent by your computer each time you visit our website, unique to your Decoms Properties account or your browser) or similar technologies to get log data. When we use cookies or other similar technologies, we use session cookies (that last until you close your browser) or persistent cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them). For example, we use cookies to store your language preferences or other settings so you don‘t have to set them up every time you visit Decoms Properties. Some of the cookies we use are associated with your Decoms Properties account (including information about you, such as the email address you gave us) and other cookies are not.
  • Device information. In addition to log data, we collect information about the device you’re using Decoms Properties on, including the type of device, operating system, settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data that helps us understand when something breaks.
  • Clickstream data and inferences. When you’re on Decoms Properties, we use your activity —such as text that you add in a comment or description—along with the information you provided when you first signed up and information from our partners and advertisers to make inferences about you and your preferences. For example, we may also infer information about your education or professional experience based on your activity when you link your account to third parties like Facebook or Google.

3. Our partners and advertisers share information with us

We also get information about you and your activity outside Decoms Properties from our affiliates, advertisers, partners, and other third parties we work with. For example:

  • Some websites or apps use Decoms Properties features such as our “Save” button, or you may install our “Save” button for your browser. If so, we collect log data from those sites or apps. You can learn more about these features at our Help Center.
  • Online advertisers or third parties share information with us to measure, report on or improve the performance of ads on Decoms Properties, or to figure out what kinds of ads to show you on or off of Decoms Properties. This includes information about your visits to an advertiser’s site or purchases you made from them, or information about your interests from a third-party service, which we might use to help show you ads.

What we do with the info we collect

We’re committed to showing you content that’s relevant, interesting, and personal to you. To do that, we use your information to provide and improve your experience, including:

  • Identify you when you use Decoms Properties.
  • Respond to your questions or comments.

We have a legitimate interest in using your info in these ways. It’s fundamental to what we do at Decoms Properties and necessary in order to make Decoms Properties and its features relevant and personalized to you. We also have a legitimate interest in making Decoms Properties safe and improving our product features so you keep finding what you want. We all benefit when we use your information to:

  • Work with law enforcement and keep Decoms Properties safe. We may get requests for account information from law enforcement authorities like the police or courts.
  • Review your messages on Decoms Properties to detect activity that poses a risk to the safety of you, our community, and/or members of the public.
  • Conduct analytics and research on who is using Decoms Properties and what they are doing. For example, by logging how often people use two different versions of a feature on Decoms Properties, we can understand which version is better.
  • Improve Decoms Properties and offer new features.
  • Advertise Decoms Properties products and services to you on other sites. You can choose for us not to share your information with other sites to personalize those ads as described in the “Choices you have about your information section below.
  • Send you updates (such as when certain activity, like saves or comments, happens on Decoms Properties) and news by email or push notification, depending on your settings. For example, we send weekly updates that include Properties you may like. You can decide to stop getting these notifications by updating your settings.

We have a legitimate interest in delivering ads that are relevant, interesting, and personal to you in order to generate revenue. To further these interests we use the information we collect to:

  • Decide which ads to show you. For example, if you show an interest in room designs on Decoms Properties, we may show you ads for other interior design products. We customize the ad content we show you by identifying your interests based on your onsite and offsite activities, as well as by using the information we receive from ad partners or other third parties. Where we use cookies to identify your offsite interests, we’ll get your consent where we need to. Where ad partners or other third parties share information with us about you, we rely on the consent they already obtained.
    • Tell our ad partners how their Decoms Properties ads are doing, and how to make them better. Some of this information is aggregated. For example, we would report to an advertiser that a certain percentage of people who viewed a Promoted Properties went on to visit that advertiser’s site. In other instances, this information isn’t aggregated. For example, we would let an advertiser know that a particular Promoted property has been saved by certain people.

We have a legitimate interest in using the information we collect to customize your Decoms Properties experience based on your offsite activities. For example, if you visit websites that sell home appliances, we may suggest electric appliances to you. When we identify your interests based on your offsite behavior with cookies, we (or our partners) will obtain any consent that we may need.

Choices you have about your info

Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices regarding your information. If you have a Decoms Properties account, many of these controls are built directly into Decoms Properties or your settings. For example, you can:

  • Edit information in your profile at any time, decide whether your profile is available to search engines, or choose whether others can find your Decoms Properties account using your email address.
    • Link or unlink your Decoms Properties account from other services (like Facebook, Google, or Twitter). For some services (like Facebook), you can also decide whether or not to publish your Decoms Properties activity to that service.
    • Choose whether Decoms Properties ads delivered to you on other platforms, sites, or apps are customized using information about your account activities. You can control this by visiting your settings and updating your “Personalization” preferences.
    • Choose whether Decoms Properties shares information about your activity on Decoms Properties for ads performance reporting. You can control this by visiting your settings and updating your “Personalization” preferences.
    • Close your account at any time. When you close your account, we’ll deactivate it and delete your account data. Please note that there may be legal reasons for us to keep your data, such as if we receive a law enforcement request asking us to preserve data. We may also retain certain information in our backup systems for a limited period of time, or as required by law.

We also support settings such as Limit Ad Tracking in iOS, Ads Personalization on Android devices as well as Do Not Track in browsers. You also have choices available to you through the device or software you use to access Decoms Properties. For example:

  • The browser you use lets you control cookies or other types of local data storage.
  • Your mobile device lets you choose how and whether your precise location, photos, contacts, and other data are shared with us.

To learn more about these choices, please see the information provided by your device or software provider.

How and when we share information

Anyone can see the content you post and the profile information you give us. We also make this public information available through what are called APIs (basically a technical way to share information quickly). We also share your information with:

  • Other services, at your direction, to enable you to sign up for or log in to Decoms Properties, or when you decide to link your Decoms Properties account to those services, like Facebook or Google, or when you publish your content on Decoms Properties to them. For example, if you choose to publish your properties on Facebook or Twitter, then information about that content will be shared with Facebook or Twitter.
  • Services we use to market Decoms Properties to you on sites and apps other than Decoms Properties, such as Facebook Ads, Google Marketing Platform, Microsoft Advertising, LinkedIn Advertising, and others from time to time. You can opt out of sharing with such advertising services in your settings.
  • Online advertisers and third-party companies that we or they use to audit or improve the delivery and performance of ads or content on websites and apps (for example, through Google Analytics). This includes us sharing the ads you were shown on Decoms Properties and whether or how you engaged with those ads or other information about your activity on Decoms Properties.
  • Third-party companies, service providers, or individuals that we employ to process the information on our behalf based on our instructions and for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. For example, we share data with security consultants to help us get better at identifying spam. Some information we acquire may be collected by third-party providers on our behalf.
  • Law enforcement agencies or government agencies. We only share information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or Decoms Properties; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
  • Our wholly-owned subsidiaries and affiliates. If we were to engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy, we would share your information with a party involved in such a process (for example, a potential purchaser).

How long do we keep your information

We keep your information only so long as we need it to provide Decoms Properties to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share your information with and who carries out services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can’t identify you.

How we make changes to this policy

We may change this policy from time to time and if we do, we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use Decoms Properties after those changes are in effect, you agree to the new policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide a more prominent notice or get your consent, as required by law.
