Welcome to Casafari!
We know from personal experience just how painful it can be to purchase real estate abroad, and we think it should be faster, easier, and more transparent. So we created Casafari, a real estate search engine for prime properties abroad. We help buyers to find the homes they want and help property owners and real estate agents to find interested buyers.
Information we collect
We log your IP address in order to help diagnose problems with our server, administer the Site and track usage statistics. Your IP address may vary each time you visit, or it may be the same, depending on whether you access the Site through an always-on type of Internet connection (e.g., cable modem or DSL), or through a dial-up connection (e.g., AOL or Earthlink). Either way, it would be extremely difficult for us to identify you through your IP address, and we make no attempt to do so. If you reached the Site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another site, then we also log that information. This helps us maximize our Internet exposure, and understand our users’ interests. All of this information is collected and used only in the aggregate; that is, it is entered into our database, where we can use it to generate overall reports on our visitors, but not individual reports that identify you personally. In addition, in order to access features of the Services, you will be required to provide certain information to Casafari, such as your first name, last name, home address and answers to security questions (your “Credit Information”). For the purpose of using certain payment features, you may provide to Casafari financial information such as credit card or bank account numbers (“Payment Information”). Casafari may also request other information including such information as your first and last name, email address, job title, employer, location, gender, age, marital status, phone number, type of device through which you access the Site or Casafari App, and other personal and lifestyle information (your “Personal Information”). You may provide your Personal Information to Casafari by completing the required forms on the Site or Casafari App, or by allowing us to access your name and other profile information through existing accounts you may have on social networking services, or otherwise. Casafari will not be responsible for any problems or liability related to inaccurate or incomplete Credit Information, Payment Information, and/or Personal Information, whether due to your failure to update such Credit Information, Payment Information, and/or Personal Information or otherwise.
We also give you the option to give us your email address and other information so we can send notifications of real estate listings to your email account, store listings you choose to save on the Site, log your search activity to display to you which listings you’ve viewed previously, and also to connect your account activity between the Site and Casafari App, if applicable. Through the Site and Casafari App, you may choose to contact landlords or listing agents directly. If you do this, Casafari may provide your first name, last name, email address, phone number, and other Personal Information to such third parties. You may choose to attach additional Personal Information to emails you send through the Site.
How we use the information we collect
We use the information we collect to help you:
a) find the most relevant information by organizing the Site and Casafari App optimally
b) communicate with third parties regarding listings available on the Site or through the Casafari App c) make payments to third parties through the Site or the Casafari App, should you choose to do so
d) send you relevant real estate-related listings via email (if you have not opted out of such communications), and via phone, text messaging, or push notification on your phone (only if you have consented to such communications)
e) compare information for accuracy and verify it with third parties
Disclosure of Information
Casafari does not rent or sell Personal Information, Payment Information, or Credit Information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies, except when we have your consent to do so, as necessary to complete a transaction you have requested, for marketing purposes (unless you have chosen not to receive such communications, in certain business transactions), and when required by law. We reserve the right to use in any manner and disclose any non-personal information that we collect including cookie and traffic data. We do not combine Personal Information with any of the non-personal information gathered on the Site or the Casafari App. Logs, recordings, related Personal Information, and other information related to communications between you and third parties through the Services may be stored, maintained, and/ or divulged to those third parties by Casafari on an individual basis or in the aggregate. We may release Personal Information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order) or applicable regulations; to enforce or apply our policies; to initiate, render, bill, and collect for amounts owed to us; for risk assessment; to protect our rights or property or those of our other users, or to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, the Site or Services; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
We may use third party service providers to assist us with the administration of the Site, Casafari App or otherwise perform services on our behalf, including transaction processing and sending email. Such third parties may be supplied with or have access to certain portions or all of your Personal Information solely to provide services to us or on our behalf. Similarly, we occasionally hire consultants that may need access to our member database to perform their services for us. Information about our users, the Site, and the Casafari App is a business asset of Casafari. Therefore, information about our users, including Personal Information, will be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition; the creation of a separate business to provide the Site or Services or to operate a part of the Services; the sale or pledge of company assets; as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which Personal Information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.

Accessing and Modifying Your Information
We use commercially reasonable security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. However, we cannot guarantee the protection of information against interception, misappropriation, misuse, or alteration or that your information may be not be disclosed or accessed by accidental circumstances or by the unauthorized acts of others.
