Thank you for using RelocationOnline Hosted Relocation Services.
Our Services are intended for and provided to businesses and other organizations that provide relocation services ("Service Users"). Service Users may use our Services to deliver relocation support to individual end-users or consumers ("Relocation Users"), in which case the Service Users may direct us to process personal data of Relocation Users. When we do, we do so as a "service provider" or a "data processor" working on behalf of the Service Users, and do not control and are not responsible for the privacy practices of the Service Users. If you are a Relocation User using our Services through one of the Service Users, you should read the Service User's privacy statement and direct any privacy inquiries to that organization.

Cookies, Mobile IDs, and similar technologies
What are cookies and similar technologies?
Cookies are small text files placed by a website and stored by your browser on your device. A cookie can later be read when your browser connects to a web server in the same domain that placed the cookie. The text in a cookie contains a string of numbers and letters that may uniquely identify your device and can contain other information as well. This allows the web server to recognize your browser over time, each time it connects to that web server.
Web beacons are electronic images (also called single-pixel or clear GIFs) that are contained within a website or email. When your browser opens a webpage or email that contains a web beacon, it automatically connects to the web server that hosts the image (typically operated by a third party). This allows that web server to log information about your device and to set and read its own cookies. In the same way, third-party content on our Sites (such as embedded videos or plug-ins) results in your browser connecting to the third-party web server that hosts that content. Our Services including any emails we may send you may contain web beacons. Web beacons are used to monitor user activity and other related web statistics.
We, and our analytics partners, use these technologies in our Services to collect personal data (such as the pages you visit, the links you click on, and similar usage information, identifiers, and device information) when you use our Services, including personal data about your online activities over time and across different websites or online services. This information is used to store your preferences and settings, enable you to sign-in, analyze how our Services perform, track your interaction with the Sites, develop inferences, combat fraud, and fulfill other legitimate purposes. We and/or our partners also share the information we collect or infer with third parties for these purposes.
The third-party analytics providers we use on our websites include, for example:
Please consult the respective privacy policies and statements of these third parties for more information, including how to opt-out from their use of cookie data for targeted advertising purposes. You may also use the advertising and cookie controls described below.
What controls are available?
- Browser cookie controls. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can go to your browser settings to learn how to delete or reject cookies. If you choose to delete or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our Sites. If you choose to delete cookies, settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, may be deleted and may need to be recreated.
- Email web beacons. Most email clients have settings which allow you to prevent the automatic downloading of images, including web beacons, which prevents the automatic connection to the web servers that host those images.
- Do Not Track. Some browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track" (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, our Sites do not currently respond to browser DNT signals. Instead, you can use the range of other tools to control data collection and use, including the cookie controls and advertising controls described herein.

Location of personal data
We transfer personal data from the European Economic Area, United Kingdom and Switzerland to other countries, some of which have not been determined by the European Commission to have an adequate level of data protection. When we do so, we use a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts, to help ensure your rights and protections. To learn more about the European Commission’s decisions on the adequacy of personal data protections, please visit:https://commission.europa.eu/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_en
Data storage and retention
We retain personal data for as long as necessary to provide the Services and fullfill the transactions requested by you, to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce our agreements, and for other legitimate and lawful business purposes. Because these needs can vary for different data types in the context of different products, actual retention periods can vary significantly. The criteria used to determine retention include:
- How long is the personal data needed to provide applicable Services? This includes such things as maintaining and improving the performance of the Sites, keeping our systems secure, and maintaining appropriate business and financial records.
- Do Service Users provide, create, or maintain the data with the expectation we will retain it until they affirmatively remove it? In such cases, we may maintain the data until actively deleted by the Service User.
- Are we subject to a legal, contractual, or similar obligation to retain the data? Examples can include mandatory data retention laws in the applicable jurisdiction, government orders to preserve data, or data that must be retained for the purposes of litigation.
We provide a variety of ways for you to control the personal data we hold about you, including choices about how we use that data. In some jurisdictions, these controls and choices may be enforceable as rights under applicable law.
If you have an account, you may view and update certain information we have about you by logging into your account. If you otherwise wish to request to access, copy, download, correct, or delete of any of your personal data held by us or otherwise request a change in the way we use your information, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. However, to the extent permitted by applicable law, RelocationOnline may decline requests where granting the request could adversely affect the privacy or other rights of another person, could reveal a trade secret or other confidential information, or could interfere with a legal or business obligation that requires retention or use of the data.Further, we may decline a request where we are unable to authenticate you as the person to whom the data relates, the request is unreasonable or excessive, or where otherwise permitted by applicable law. If you receive a response from us informing you that we have declined your request, in whole or in part, you may appeal that decision by submitting your appeal using the contact method described at the bottom of this privacy statement.
You can choose whether to receive promotional communications from us. Our marketing emails tell you how to "opt-out" of receiving further marketing emails. If you opt out of marketing emails, we may still send you non-marketing emails. Non-marketing emails include emails about your accounts and our business dealings with you, and as allowed by applicable law, requests for your participation in surveys. You may also contact us at email@example.com at any time to let us know that you no longer wish to receive further marketing emails.
