Types of Information We Collect and How We Use the Information We Collect

OneStopHousing.org does not collect any personally identifiable information about you other than information that you affirmatively choose to submit to us. You can use much of the OneStopHousing.org site and search tools anonymously, without creating an account or providing any personally identifiable information whatsoever.

The types of information we collect and how we use the information varies by user group. Below is the specific information for each OneStopHousing.org user group:

Renters

Renters can search for units, services, and other information anonymously. Additional services, such as saving lists of rental units, are only available after a user creates an account. When creating an account for this purpose, a user needs to create a user name and password that do not personally identify him or her self. Providing a name and contact information is optional. Personally identifiable information is only required when applying for units, housing waitlists, or services through this system. If you do not feel comfortable supplying this information, alternate means of applying for units and services will always be available. If you choose, OneStopHousing.org, or agencies that use OneStopHousing.org, can use your personally identifiable information to assist you in locating or securing suitable housing or services. This information may also be used to contact you in the event there is a problem with your account.

Property Owners and Managers

Property Owners and Managers can search for units, services, and other information anonymously. An identified owner and/or property company name and contact details are required before a user can list properties in OneStopHousing.org. This information is used to ensure the quality of listings on the OneStopHousing.org site and to verify that the identified users are authorized to make units available for rent. This information may be used to contact you in the event there is a problem with your account.

Service Agency Staff

Service Agency Staff can search for units, services, and other information anonymously. Name, agency name, and contact information are required to create an account to access additional tools and information, such as saving lists of rental units. This information may be used to contact you in the event there is a problem with your account.

We also use the information we collect to assist in determining how to improve the manner in which OneStopHousing.org delivers services to you, the user.

Information submitted by OneStopHousing.org users will be treated as confidential. OneStopHousing.org will make every effort to keep this user information confidential. However, OneStopHousing.org may disclose information about you if OneStopHousing.org is ordered to do so by law or legal process, to respond to claims, or to protect the rights or safety of OneStopHousing.org or others.

In addition, OneStopHousing.org automatically collects aggregate information about the use of our site, including which pages are most frequently visited, how many visitors we receive daily, types of users that visit the site (renters, agencies, or property owners/managers) and how long visitors stay on each page. Such aggregate information may be shared with entities that are not OneStopHousing.org partners, but only in aggregate form.

How do we secure your personally identifiable information?

We use secure socket layers (SSL) encryption to protect your personally identifiable information. SSL encrypts your personal data, making it unreadable as it travels over the Internet. The 128-bit SSL technology used by OneStopHousing.org is the standard for large-scale online merchants, banks, brokerages, health care organizations, and insurance companies worldwide.
