Data Collected for use in ProspectNow Products
ProspectNow licenses and aggregates data to provide to its customers for use our in our products. These customers are most commonly real estate professionals.
Although not legally mandated until January 1, 2020, ProspectNow is already fully compliant with the recently enacted California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The vast majority of our information about non-business properties and individual homeowners has been obtained from public records sources, such as mortgage liens and real estate tax assessments, that is not considered “personal information” under (and is therefore not subject to) the CCPA. However, ProspectNow does license and collect phone numbers and email addresses on consumers information which is subject to the CCPA. In the interest of transparency and to implement our commitment to consumer privacy, ProspectNow applies the CCPA’s requirements to ALL our residential real estate database and website registration content, meaning that California residents enjoy the benefits of CCPA rights from ProspectNow even though we are not obligated to do so on all of our data.
The CCPA includes three important rights that ProspectNow voluntarily offers to California consumers:
- Disclosure. California consumers can request that ProspectNow disclose the categories and specific pieces of personal information we have collected or purchased about them, the business purpose for collecting or purchasing the information, and the categories of any third parties with whom we share or to whom we have sold such information, without charge but no more than twice in any 12-month period, by sending a written disclosure request by e-mail to privacy@ProspectNow.com or by phoning us toll-free at 888-956-9998. You will need to provide documented proof that you are the person in question. We will disclose the foregoing within 45 days unless we provide notice of a longer period as permitted by the CCPA.
- Deletion. California consumers can request that ProspectNow delete any personal information about the them which we have collected from or purchased by sending a written deletion request by e-mail to privacy@ProspectNow.com or by phoning us toll-free at 888-956-9998. Again, you will need to provide documented proof that you are the person in question. ProspectNow will promptly delete all personal information about a California consumer upon a receipt of a deletion request, except with regard to information that is necessary for us to complete registration of and provide services to the consumer, protect against security incidents or fraudulent or illegal activity, to maintain the functionality of our website and databases and for other, internal uses specifically permitted by the CCPA.
Opt-Out. California consumers can request that ProspectNow not sell personal information about them to third parties. Known as the “right to opt-out,” such a request may be made by sending a written opt-out request by e-mail to privacy@ProspectNow.com, by phoning us toll-free at 888-956-9998 or by using the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link and page of our website.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information collected on or through our website and in our services. While we use the latest security technologies and tools, it should be noted that no method of electronic storage or transmission can guarantee absolute data security.
When you enter sensitive personal information (such as credit card information) into our system, such information is sent to our payment processor in an encrypted form (with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology) and not stored on our servers. This information will not be sold or shared with any third party other than the trusted transaction processing partner that we use to complete any on-line financial transaction.
While we strive to protect your personal information, ProspectNow cannot ensure or warrant the security of any data or content you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your personal information, we will notify you as soon as possible so you can take appropriate protective steps and to inform you of the steps that ProspectNow is taking with respect to such breach.

We communicate with subscribers to our services through e-mail, SMS, phone and other means of electronic communication. By filling out an online form, you are consenting to this communication.
Users may choose to opt out of receiving e-mail communications from ProspectNow and clear opt-out instructions are included in e-mail messages, or you can simply call us at 1-888-956-9998. However, we periodically communicate information to active customers about customer accounts, renewal notices and information about service changes in order to ensure the integrity of our services and such communications cannot be terminated by subscribers unless they cease to subscribe to the services.

The ProspectNow Database and Ability to Opt Out
The ProspectNow Database contains millions of property records and company profiles. The ProspectNow Database has been created by ProspectNow in the following ways: 1) by way of public records aggregationg, and 2) by way of licensing of business information from third-party data providers. We recognize that publishing public information about real property necessarily involves the publication of information about real estate properties that might be used to associate public records with individual people. The information provided on this site is protected by the Freedom of Information Act, the corollary state laws, and the First Amendment; however, we oppose the use of the information on this site to invade the privacy of anyone.

As our site is updated regularly, we cannot promise than any such changes will be permanent.
Phone number data is the responsibility of your telephone service provider or the public agency which provided it. If you wish to have a commercial phone number removed from the site, contact your provider or the appropriate agency to have your phone number de-listed or removed. It may take three to six months for this change to appear on the site. If the phone number you’d like to have removed is a number for your personal residence associated with a property in our database, enter phone number below along with proof of residency at the property in question, and we will provide a response within 48 hrs.
