It is Florida Rental By Owners ("FlaRBO") policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. This privacy statement applies to all information, personal or otherwise received on this website. At FlaRBO, our goal is to give straightforward, transparent information so you can make an informed decision whether or not to use FlaRBO's products and services. FlaRBO is a for-profit company and provides users a software product in the form of subscriptions by helping Florida vacation rental owners advertise their properties to FlaRBO travelers and website users. This Privacy Statement may also change from time to time as needed but will be updated here for full transparency.
Like most website operators, FlaRBO collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. FlaRBO's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how FlaRBO's visitors use its website. From time to time, FlaRBO may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
FlaRBO also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on FloridaRentalByOwners.com. FlaRBO only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left. FlaRBO reserves the right to disclose your personal data as required by law, or when FlaRBO reasonably believes that disclosure is necessary to protect its rights, or to protect the personal safety of another person, or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served upon FlaRBO.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to FlaRBO websites choose to interact with FlaRBO in ways that require FlaRBO to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that FlaRBO gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at FloridaRentalByOwners.com to provide a username, email address and billing address. Those who engage in transactions with FlaRBO are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, FlaRBO collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with FlaRBO. FlaRBO does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Access to Personal Data
FlaRBO provides users with reasonable access to personal data to correct any inaccuracies or to delete personal data. Please contact FlaRBO here if you are unsure of how to do either process. FlaRBO may decline requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy and/or safety of others, would be extremely impractical, or where information is required to be retained by law for legitimate business purposes.

FlaRBO will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, FlaRBO discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when FlaRBO believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FlaRBO, third parties or the public at large.

FlaRBO takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
User and Event Data Retention - including International Visitors and Customers
If FlaRBO, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that FlaRBO goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of FlaRBO may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
No data transmissions over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, FlaRBO cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit and there you do so at your own risk. However, FlaRBO makes every reasonable effort to ensure that physical, administrative, and technical safeguards are in place to protect the security of its systems and its data collection. However, note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, altered, disclosed or destroyed by breach of such measures. If FlaRBO learns of a security breach, it may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate steps to protect yourself. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of such a security breach in writing.
