Commercialpropertydirectory.com shares member information in the following areas on the site: Listing Service, Email Alerts and Professional Directory. When a member enters a sale or lease listing in the Listing Service, listing contact information is also entered. During this process, the listing submitter is able to view other members' contact information when he adds another contact beside himself to the listing. In addition, members searching Commercialpropertydirectory.com can view contact information (name, email and phone number) when they view a property listing profile. Commercialpropertydirectory.com allows users to share contact information with one another via its Email Alerts service. With Email Alerts users can save their property search criteria to have information about properties that match the specified criteria emailed to them. When selecting this service, users are given the option of releasing their contact information to other users who have property listings that match their criteria. This contact information is then shared with the users who have property listings that match the buying or leasing criteria. Unless required by law as detailed in this section or a user specifically takes action as discussed in this paragraph, Commercialpropertydirectory.com does not share individual user search activity information and such activity information remains private to the individual user and to Commercialpropertydirectory.com. Broker/Agent Profile users agree to share their contact information and allow all Commercialpropertydirectory.com users to view their contact information via the Commercialpropertydirectory.com Broker/Agent Directory or via links made available to users on a listing or in an email.

Commercialpropertydirectory.com shares information with its partners for the purpose of providing related services in which we deem our users have interest. The use that Commercialpropertydirectory.com's partners make of customer information will not exceed Commercialpropertydirectory.com's use of the data. Key billing information (such as credit card number, expiration date and dollar amount) gathered from users making online purchases of products or services is shared with Google Checkout, our credit card processing partner, in order to authorize charges to the credit card. Commercialpropertydirectory.com also uses third party providers to perform email and postal mailings on behalf of Commercialpropertydirectory.com, but this information (such as name, address and email) is confidential and is not used by the provider for any other purpose.
Commercialpropertydirectory.com does not rent or lease user information to any third party, except as disclosed here.

While Commercialpropertydirectory.com endeavors to work with other sites and companies with a similar respect for user privacy, Commercialpropertydirectory.com cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other sites.
