PERSONS UNDER 13
The Site is not intended for individuals under the age of 13 and we have no intention of collecting PI from children under 13. If you are under the age of 13 or would otherwise be restricted from registering a social media account because of your age, please do not attempt to create an account on the Site or provide us with us with any PI of any kind.
We take safety issues very seriously, especially with children, and we encourage parents to teach their children about safe Internet practices. To learn more, visit onGuardonline.gov – the U.S. Federal Government’s website for safe, secure and responsible online use by children under 13.
ACCOUNT INFORMATION AND CONTENT
In order to use the Site, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on the Site for which they have expressed interest.
We collect the content and other information (collectively “Content”) that results when you use the Site, including when you create or share information, when you email or communicate with others on the Site, and when others post information about you. This information is used to provide the services of the Site to its users.
Users who choose to make a donation must provide contact information and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes. If we have trouble processing a payment, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
t is important that you do not share your personal account or your account password with anyone. Doing so will compromise our ability to protect your PI.
When a member creates or posts Content to the public areas of the Site, he or she shares it with the SeniorHomeshares.com community at large. In some cases, the Content may also be visible to other people visiting the Site. Therefore, if a member chooses to post information on the Site, he or she automatically makes that information public, not only to the SeniorHomeshares.com community, but also potentially to non-members. Therefore, you should have no expectation of privacy in the Content you post to the public areas of the Site.
In addition to disclosures that you specifically authorize, Senior Homeshares may disclose PI as follows: (1) to comply with legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; (2) in response to a physical threat to you or others; (3) to protect property or to defend or assert legal rights; or (4) in connection with a transaction or proceeding involving the transfer of all or part of our business relating to the information, or involving the transfer of control of those assets involved in such business. In the event that Senior Homeshares is legally compelled to disclose your PI to a third party, we will attempt to notify you, unless doing so would violate the law or court order. Any and all attempts by Senior Homeshares to provide notification will be made solely by email to the email address that you used when you registered with the Site.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Every computer that accesses the Site is assigned a different cookie by the Site. These cookies store tracking codes to enable our system to locate information from past visits to the Site, but do not contain information that identifies you personally. The information collected by cookies allows us to statistically monitor and to help optimize the Site. Cookies are also used to facilitate a member’s log-in, as navigation aids and as session timers.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Senior Homeshares may combine any public information you provide with information from other users to create aggregate data to display on the Site. This information may include, but is not limited to, any PI information you have submitted to the Site. This aggregate information may also be disclosed to third parties. Aggregate data does not contain any information that could be used to contact you or identify you personally.

We also send the user announcements about site and service updates. Members are not able to unsubscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and to address issues relating to their account, via email or phone.

UPDATING AND REMOVING YOUR INFORMATION
You have the right to access, correct and delete inaccuracies in your PI at any time. With respect to registration information, this may be accomplished by logging in to your account on the Site, where you can view and make changes to your PI.
You may have limited rights to edit or remove any Content that you post, share or otherwise distribute on the Site that includes your PI, depending on the specific portion of the Site on which it is posted. For example, a member will not have the ability to edit or delete information posted in a public forum but may submit a request to Senior Homeshares to remove such information by sending an email to Member Service.
Notwithstanding whether a member has an ability to edit or delete information seen by others, it is imperative for members to understand that even if Senior Homeshares elects to delete any Content from the view of others, such information may still be stored on other databases, specifically including those kept for archival purposes. Furthermore, while we may honor your request to remove any Content, any Content that was previously shared with a member or other third party at your consent will be subject to their own privacy policies and user agreements and cannot be deleted or removed by Senior Homeshares. Senior Homeshares will not endeavor to retrieve deleted content from our archives in order to erase it from the archives. Also members should be aware that any Content that you post may have been republished or distributed prior to deletion and may remain publicly available on another portion of the Site. Finally, it is important for you to be mindful that the Content you create on the Site may be available to the general public and may be collected, copied or indexed by third parties such as search engines.
