Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.oahurealtypro.com.
What personal data we collect, and why we collect it
This site retains anonymized information about each site visitor for a short period of time to improve your visitor experience while on this site. An example of this is your ability to ‘favorite’ a home, or several homes, without the requirement of registering. This allows you to keep a listing of your favorites and view those listings whenever you visit our site. When you delete your web browser cache, we can no longer identify which list is yours, and thus, your favorites list is deleted after a short time.
When visitors leave comments on this site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address, and the browser user agent string. We do this to help spam detection and prevent spam from entering our site. We work hard to create a constructive and helpful home search site and are diligent about fending off spam. Spam can be identified in several different ways in a multi-layered approach. One of the first layers is to compare the commenter’s IP address against known spammer IP addresses and block those known IP addresses from commenting. We work with the global leaders in cybersecurity to ensure our web traffic is encrypted, anonymized, and safe – while at the same time providing you with a rewarding experience while visiting our site.
If you upload personal images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website. These can be retained in cookies and are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. This ensures that only you are receiving the password reset request and helps us prevent someone else from gaining access to your account.
We DO NOT sell or distribute your personal data to anyone else. When you request information on a property, you will be asked to provide your email address to send you the additional information. When you select ‘Make an Offer’ or ‘Buy Now,’ we will ask for certain information to ensure we have the details correct to propose the offer on your behalf. We will keep your identity private until such time that it is required at a later date to continue the purchasing transaction.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. Any payment information for subscriptions or other services is handled by our payment processors whose logos are on the payment pages and are well known and of the highest integrity. We do not store or retain any payment processing information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data
We make regular backups of our site, which are held in encrypted containers. Backups are only used in case of a system failure that requires us to restore the site and its information to full functionality. We have a system backup policy that allows us to restore the site daily, weekly, or monthly. The longest we retain any backup is 45 days from its original backup date.
What third parties we receive data from
Third parties we work with include Hawaii MLS, Google Maps, Google Search, Microsoft Bing Search, Gravatar, SPAM Assasin, and other such services to ensure a seamless and safe experience on the web.
