To receive certain benefits of using the Websites, you may be required to provide your personally identifiable information, including but not limited to your name, email address, physical address, phone number and job titles (“Personal Information”). Such Personal Information, for example, is collected when an applicant fills out and submits a rental application to us. If you do not wish for this Personal Information to be collected, you should not use the relevant function of the Websites. The following describes the types of Personal Information and other information we may collect about you, and how we use and maintain that information:


Our web servers may collect information related to the device or browser you use to access or interact with our Websites, such as IP address, location information, unique device identifiers and other information about your device, browser types, browser language, and unique numbers or codes in cookies. This information may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Websites, pages viewed, etc. We may use this information to measure the use of our Websites and to improve the content we offer. We may share with third parties this experiential information or other data on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you. We do not use technology that recognizes a “do-not-track” signal from your web browser.


As you browse the Websites, cookies will be placed on your computer so that we can better understand your interests. A “cookie” is a small amount of data that our Websites can send to your internet browser which may then be stored on your computer’s hard drive so that we can recognize you when you return to our Websites in the future. If you have registered with the Websites, these cookies may let us know who you are and identify your browser as one that has visited the Websites before. These cookies may also be required to access your account information (which is securely stored on the hard drive of our computer) in order to allow us to deliver our products and personalized services to you. You may set your Web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to not accept certain cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from our Websites, you may not be able to take advantage of all of the features of our Websites.


By providing Personal Information to us through our Websites or by submitting a rental application to us online via email, or by any other method, you acknowledge that you have read and understood our collection and use of that information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you choose to submit Personal Information to us, we will retain the information you submit. You also agree that we may use any information that you provide and may share it with our affiliates and third parties, only as described in this Privacy Policy. Before you can utilize some portions of our Websites, we may require that you register with Venterra and provide us with your contact information and generate a password. This registration information may be used, for example, for identification purposes, to communicate with you regarding your account with us or to facilitate the functioning of our Websites. We will keep any information that you provide to us for no longer than is necessary in accordance with the purposes for which the information was originally collected. Additionally, by submitting a rental application through the Website, you acknowledge that you are submitting your Personal Information to us and that we may use such Personal Information to determine rental eligibility and collection of amounts owed, and that we may share your Personal Information with our affiliates and third parties for business related reasons including but not limited to, credit reporting agencies, collection agencies or perspective purchasers or their agents in any manner allowed by law and as described in this Privacy policy.


To the extent permitted by applicable law, we retain personal information we obtain about you as long as (1) it is needed for the purposes for which we obtained it, in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Policy or (2) we have another lawful basis, stated in this Privacy Policy or at the point of collection, for retaining that information beyond the period for which it is necessary to serve the original purpose for obtaining the personal information. When determining the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we take into account various criteria, such as the amount, nature and sensitivity of the Personal Information; potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure; purposes for which we process your Personal Information; whether we can achieve those purposes through other means; and business operations and legal requirements.

Because we maintain our Websites to protect from accidental or malicious loss and destruction, residual copies of your Personal Information may be retained in our backup and archival systems for a limited period of time, after which the information will be deleted in compliance with the Texas privacy law.

We may keep all of this information for as long as it is required for the purpose it was originally collected.

If you are having difficulty unsubscribing using the above methods, please contact us directly at the email or phone number listed below under “Contact“.
