What information is collected?
Synergy Global Housing (“Synergy”) may collect information from you because we have a legal reason (allowed by law or under contract) to collect the information, or because you have consented for us to do so for a specific purpose.
As a corporate housing and services provider, we may receive, process or store certain information, including personal information, from Data Subjects. Data collection may include event logs, end user information (such as IP address, email address and computer name), and other data where relevant to a support or service request. Synergy also collects Personal Information about you when you choose to provide such information to us. For example, you may provide us with Personal Information when you submit an online form, apply for a job, communicate with us by e-mail, or access client-specific content. This information may include your name; business or personal contact information, such as your address, email address or phone number; and any information that you provide as part of our website and services (collectively, “Personal Information”).
Data Collected Automatically
Our Website, products and services also automatically create logs regarding your activity on our Website. These logs may identify the features that you use, the actions that you take, and the information that you access. We generally use this information in statistical and aggregate formats to assess the effectiveness of our Website and products and services and to better understand your priorities and interests.
Please note that this opt-out is cookie based (i.e., a cookie must be on your computer to tell our systems that you have opted-out). If you delete, block or otherwise restrict cookies, this opt-out may not be effective. Additionally, because different computers and different Internet browsers all require their own version of the opt-out cookie, you need to perform this opt-out process on any computer and browsers that you want to be opted-out.
