The information we collect, why we use it, who we share it with, and how we protect it, along with the tools you can use to manage your privacy.

When you use our services to find, buy, rent, or sell your home, we know you’re trusting us with your data. We also know we have a responsibility to respect your privacy, and we work hard to do just that. This policy explains what information we collect, why we use it, who we share it with, and how we protect it, along with the tools you can use to manage your privacy.

Information collected by Ndayishimiye Real Estate
When you use our services, we collect a variety of information from and about you and your devices. Some of this information identifies you directly (like an email address) while some of it is associated with you through your account, profile, or device (like the homes you choose to save or your location data).
The kind of data we collect about you depends on how you use our sites. If you only use our services to browse for homes, we’ll have less information about you than if we help you sell your home, get a mortgage, sign your lease, or if you use any of our other transaction services. Even if you don’t have an account with us, we may still collect some data about you, like your email address and phone number if you choose to contact a real estate agent through our platform, or your IP address and other device information when you browse our sites.

Information you give us or create using our services
When you use our services, we often ask you for information about yourself. This usually includes basic things like your name, email address, and phone number. If you use our transaction services, we might ask you for more sensitive data like your income, housing history, and credit score. If you contribute information, such as agent reviews, we’ll store that as well.
You may also provide information about other people through our services. For example, if you share a home listing with someone, we will collect that person’s email address as part of your account information.
Below are some examples of what information we collect for our main products and services and how we collect it.
We collect similar contact and transaction-related information from you if you are interested in purchasing a Ndayishimiye Real Estate-owned home. If you choose to tour a Ndayishimiye Real Estate-owned home, we collect information to verify your identity. Ndayishimiye Real Estate may collect information about you from third parties if needed to verify your identity.

Ndayishimiye Real Estate Offers

This includes contact information (such as an email address or phone number), identifying information about you, and details about your home. We may also take some photos of your home so we know what types of repairs may be necessary. If we agree to buy your home, we’ll need to collect more information from you that is typical of any real estate transaction, including financial information.

Home Search
When you use Ndayishimiye Real Estate’s home search brands to find a home to buy or rent, we give you lots of tools to find your next home.

We also help you connect with local real estate agents, homebuilders, property managers, mortgage loan officers, and other real estate professionals.
