How Express Homebuyers may use or share personal information collected online
Personal Information is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share Personal Information only as described below and with affiliates of Express Homebuyers.
We may employ other companies or individuals to perform functions on our behalf including analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and providing customer service. These agents have access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy business units. In such transactions, Personal Information generally is one of the transferred business assets. In the event that Express Homebuyers or substantially all of its assets are acquired, Personal Information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
