SoCo Technologies, Inc. is the sole owner of the information collected on realtybaron.com. SoCo Technologies, Inc. collects personally identifiable information when a user registers, posts a description of their property, or bids to represent a property owner.
If you participate in a listing auction as a homeowner, we will collect information about your house and property. Only the zip code, features (living rooms, bedrooms, baths, etc), short description, and photo of a property will be disclosed on the site. Of those items, the zip code, features, and short description are required. If you participate as a real estate professional, we will collect your history of bids on each auction. Your bid amount will only be displayed while you are winning.
SoCo Technologies, Inc. does not distribute personally identifiable information about users. In the future, we will use aggregate, non-personally identifying sales data collected after listing auctions to provide premimum services to consumers.
