The General Terms below are complicated legal terms that serve to protect us and make clear the privacy terms that will apply to users of Renti services. These terms below are here to give you a simple explanation of what the General Terms really mean in plain English.
However, these plain English terms are not legally binding and the General Terms are still the legal terms that will apply if anything goes wrong.
Renti is an online application portal that allows tenants to create a rental profile to apply for rental properties, quickly and easily. It enables fast, easy communication between the tenant, property manager and landlord to keep everyone up to date on the application process.
Renti collects personal information on the tenant, which included ID, credit and income information that is used by the property manager and landlord to determine who is the best fit for renting their property. This information is passed onto and stored by the property manager or landlord and is also stored in Renti to make it easier for you to apply for future properties.
Your personal information will be protected with the highest levels of standards and can be removed on your request. The Privacy Act governs how we handle your personal information and The Credit Reporting Privacy Code 2004 (“Code”) governs how we handle your personal credit information.
