This document describes the types of information My House in the Cloud (MHITC) gathers from users of the MHITC website at www.myhouseinthecloud.com. It also describes how such information is used.

MHITC’s Privacy Policy is incorporated as part of the MHITC terms of use. Please read this Privacy Policy and MHITC’s Terms of Use carefully before using its services.

Why MHITC collects information from you

MHITC is a website which allows homeowners to store pertinent information regarding their homes. This information is available only to the homeowner and can only be accessed by a unique user name and password. The MHITC website also allows professionals such as real estate agents, lenders and insurance agents, as well as vendors such as potential contractors hired to work on a home, to sign up and enter their contact information which is available on separate directories to the general public

MHITC’s policy goal is complete transparency in regard to data it collects, why it’s collected, and how it is utilized.

Information MHITC collects and how it was obtained

You can access MHITC’s website pages without having to input any information about yourself. In certain cases, however, you or your designated Professional(s) will be able to enter your personal data, but are not obligated to do so. All Personally Identifiable Information (as defined by California Business and Professions Code Section 22577) provided is voluntary. The collected information may include:

  • Your first and last name;
  • Your home or other physical address, including street name and name of city or town;
  • An e-mail address;
  • A telephone number;
  • Any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of a specific individual; and
  • Information you may input, or that MHITC gathers such as cookies to remember your preferences, and is maintained as part of your account.
What MHITC does with collected personal information

MHITC collects, processes and uses personal data for various purposes such as:

  • To inform you about MHITC services or offers, if requested;
  • To provide to your Professional(s)

With whom MHITC shares this information

MHITC will not transfer, disclose, sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties other than as described in this Privacy Policy without your permission or as is required or permitted by law.

MHITC may transfer personal information collected about you through its website to countries other than the country in which the information originally was collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When personal information is transferred to other countries, MHITC protects that information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Unconsented personal data transmissions will occur when:

  • It is reasonably necessary in order to achieve the purposes outlined in the section titled, “What do we do with the personal information we collect?”;
  • Necessary to subcontractors or consultants to fulfill a contract which you entered into with MHITC;
  • Required for compliance with governmental, professional and legal obligations or inquiries, or for investigations and internal administrative activities; or
  • Required or permitted by applicable law.

In the event that MHITC transmits personal data to third parties who provide it services, all reasonable efforts to ensure third parties also comply with this Privacy Policy and applicable privacy laws will be made.
