Usage Data Collection. The Site automatically collects passive information and may also customize your visit through technical means, including the following:
Cookies allow STLPL to recognize you when you visit the Site, to personalize your experience and generally to serve you better. For example, if you enter your name, address or ZIP code on one of the Site’s forms, it may be stored in a cookie so you do not have to enter it again on other forms on the Site. Cookies and web beacons can tell us what advertising you have seen on the Site, which allows STLPL to offer you a more diverse selection of advertising information and may also be used together to measure the effectiveness of STLPL advertising campaigns. Cookies, web beacons and IP addresses are also used to compile data regarding Site usage (what web site you came from, what pages of the Site you visit, how long you were on the Site, what type of browser you are using, what web site did you go to, etc.). Web beacons may also be included in emails sent by STLPL to determine when and if such emails are opened or forwarded. You may disable cookies or otherwise manage them through tools provided with your browser software and with third-party software packages. If you turn off cookies, many of the Site’s features will not work as well or at all. Anonymous information regarding usage of the Site and services that is collected and/or aggregated by or on behalf of STLPL through the use of such technical means or otherwise is referred to in this Policy as “Usage Data”.
Personally, Identifiable Information: Personally, identifiable information collected by STLPL through your use of the Site may be stored on servers or in a cookie on your computer and may be used by STLPL for any of the following purposes:
Usage Data: Usage Data is used by STLPL for administrative, analytical, research, optimization and other purposes. For example, STLPL may use statistical analyses of Usage Data in order to measure interest in the various areas of the Site, for development purposes and to inform advertisers and partners in aggregate and anonymous terms about consumers who click on their advertising or other messages. IP Addresses are also used for systems administration and for related troubleshooting purposes.
With respect to promotional materials and newsletters that STLPL may send via email from time to time, STLPL will not continue to send you such communications if you ask us not to. However, you agree that STLPL may send to you, and you cannot opt out of, communications of a transactional or relationship nature, including, but not limited to, communications regarding fraudulent or illegal activity, account status, changes to this Policy or the STLPL Terms of Service, as well as communications to confirm, fulfill, and follow up on your registration, service, or a request submitted through the Site.
Information Sharing. STLPL may share personally identifiable information that you provide with third parties in the following cases:
Affiliates. STLPL may share personally identifiable information with its Affiliates on the condition that the Affiliates’ disclosure and use of such information is consistent with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations and this Policy.
Requests. STLPL maintains relationships with third party providers for some of the products and services offered through the Site. If you request information or services through the Site, you agree that STLPL may share personally identifiable information with third parties as may be necessary to provide such information to or perform such services for you. For example, if you request information about a property advertised on the Site, STLPL will share the information collected through such request with the owner(s) and/or agent(s) for property (or applicable designee) and any other parties providing that listing (e.g., if a third-party real estate company or real estate agent provides the listing to us on behalf of the property owner(s)). In some cases, the information that you provide through the Site may be collected directly by a third party or its designee (e.g., through forms hosted by such third party or on a page framed with STLPL branding). Personally, identifiable information also may be shared with the specific third parties that can respond to your requests in the form of reporting and other follow-up communications. The subsequent use or disclosure of any information collected by or provided to third parties is subject to their privacy policies and practices.
Direct Marketing. Except as provided herein, it is STLPL’s policy not to disclose personally identifiable information of its users to third parties specifically for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are 18 years of age or older and have affirmatively agreed to receive third party direct marketing materials, STLPL may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for direct marketing purposes. Although STLPL will endeavor to notify all third-party direct marketers that the information provided to them is confidential, the subsequent use or disclosure of information is subject to those third parties’ privacy policies and practices.
Service Providers. STLPL may work with related and unrelated third parties that provide services on its behalf. Examples include providers of analytical, developmental, promotional, research, credit card processing, technology, support and other services. For example, STLPL may work with third parties who host or operate the Site or may ask that a third party conduct an online survey or sweepstakes or send newsletters or other email communications on its behalf. Similarly, if you make a payment to STLPL by credit card, STLPL may share personally identifiable information and credit card information with a third party in order to process credit card transactions, or such information may be collected directly by the credit card processing service provider on STLPL’s behalf. In such cases, STLPL shall endeavor to require that the third party maintain personally identifiable information as confidential and use the information only to perform the services specified by STLPL.
Sweepstakes/Promotions. In the event that you participate in a sweepstakes, contest, or other promotion on the Site, STLPL reserves the right to share personally identifiable information collected in conjunction with the sweepstakes, contest or promotion with any third-party sponsor or co-sponsor.

Please note that the messages that STLPL sends to you to confirm, fulfill, or follow up on a request may incidentally include promotional material or other content from STLPL or its partners. In the case of these messages, STLPL is not sharing your personally identifiable information with those third parties. STLPL reserves the right to share Usage Data with Affiliates and any other third party for any reason.

For example, you may include a phone number and/or an email address to allow users to contact you regarding your SLP. As such, you may receive unsolicited phone calls and emails from third parties, even after your SLP is no longer on the Site. Except for required information, you should not include any contact or other information in a SLP that you do not want other parties to see or use.

Moreover, users who post a message in the Site’s Forums make their email addresses available to others, and if you post any messages in the Forums that include contact information (e.g. name, phone number) you may receive unsolicited email or calls from third parties.
