Share Homes Family Services (Share Homes) is committed to protecting the privacy of its website visitors, newsletter subscribers, and clients. We follow these policies:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

We ask subscribers who register for our free newsletter and our clients to provide us with their e-mail addresses.

These addresses are used only to send newsletters or client-based communications (such as invoices) to those subscribers. Share Homes never sells, rents, or lends e-mail addresses of users to anyone.

E-mailed newsletters may contain advertising, and such advertising may be “targeted” based on demographic information, e-mail domains, or zip codes. Such targeting is done through processes internal to Share Homes, and information from subscribers is not made available to advertisers or anyone else outside Share Homes.

Registered subscribers can change the e-mail messages that they receive, or stop receiving them altogether, at any time by contacting Share Homes.

Instructions for stopping e-mails appear at the end of each e-mail message.

Usernames and Passwords

Clients of Share Homes may have a username and password, generated by Share Homes.

Passwords are the private property of the client. For reasons of security and privacy, we do not give out usernames or passwords to anyone but the primary client contact on file. If you forget your username or password, you can contact Share Homes via phone to request it. Advertising

Share Homes may present advertisements on its website. We do not provide any personal information, such as names, postal addresses, phone numbers, or e-mail addresses, to our advertisers. The only information an advertiser will receive is what is automatically passed by a web browser, such as your internet protocol address, domain name, and browser type.


“Cookies” are bits of data sent from a web server to a user’s machine to be retrieved later for purposes of identification. When you visit Share Homes, we may create and access cookies on your computer. We use cookies for a number of reasons, such as recognizing you when you visit the site and maintaining the security of your account.

Many consider the use of cookies to be an industry standard. Consequently, your Web browser is probably set to accept cookies. If you would prefer not to receive cookies, you can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to do so, however, you should understand that it is possible that some areas of our site will not function properly when you view them.

Postal Mailings

Share Homes may send postal communications to its contacts, and these may include advertisements. Such mailings may be “targeted” based on demographic information or zip codes. Share Homes will never provide these addresses to any outside party.

If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please contact Share Homes.

Survey Information

Share Homes may ask subscribers or other users to provide demographic or other information about themselves. This information is used to help us deliver information and advertising to users of our site. Aggregated data may be shared with organizations outside Share Homes, but not individual entries including your personal information. Responding to a survey is optional.

Financial Information

Share Homes collects financial information (usually credit-card numbers) only to bill for our services.

Links to Other Sites

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
