Email Communications. If you have provided contact information through the Service and decide that you do not want Blend Realty to use that information for anything other than communications regarding your Service-related activities, you can opt-out of future use at any time by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that you will not be able to opt-out of emails about your Service-related activities, such as email alerts regarding your Service account, requests, or inquiries. Separately, you will be able to opt-out of marketing communications by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in the email.
Updating and Deleting Your Information (Non-California Residents). You may be able to add, update, or delete certain information through the Service. When you update information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records for legal compliance purposes. We retain information for as long as needed to provide the Service. We may also retain some of the information for reasons including, but not limited to, compliance with applicable regulations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. We may also continue to use any aggregated or de-identified information for improving the Service and developing business analytics, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.
Nevada Residents. Under Nevada law, certain Nevada consumers may opt out of the sale of “personally identifiable information” for monetary consideration to a person for that person to license or sell such information to additional persons. “Personally identifiable information” includes first and last name, address, email address, phone number, Social Security Number, or an identifier that allows a specific person to be contacted either physically or online. We do not engage in such activity; however, if you are a Nevada resident who has purchased or leased goods or services from us, you may submit a request to opt out of any potential future sales under Nevada law by sending us an email at email@example.com. Please note we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity and the authenticity of the request. Once verified, we will maintain your request in the event our practices change.
This section of the Policy applies solely to those individuals who reside in the State of California (“consumers” or “you”). We are providing this policy in compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and other applicable California privacy laws. Any terms used in this Notice that are not defined in the Notice itself have the same definition as used in the CCPA and its implementing regulations.

We base the information in this disclosure on our data collection practices over the previous 12 months until present time.
- How We Use Your Information: We use your information for the business or commercial purposes described above in the “How Will Blend Realty Use My Information” section of the Policy. Exactly how we use your information depends on what products/services you use and how you use the Service and interact with us.

- Blend Realty does not “sell” your personal information as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act and its implementing regulations.
Right to Know: California law provides California consumers with the right to request that certain covered businesses provide you (i) the categories of personal information we collect, use, disclose or sell about you; (ii) the categories of sources of such information; (iii) the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your personal information (as applicable); (iv) the categories of personal information we sell or have sold or disclosed for a business purpose about you and the categories of third parties to whom we’ve disclosed your personal information and, (v) specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you. This “Right to Know” is subject to certain exceptions, and we may refuse to disclose the information requested under one or many of these exceptions.
Right to Delete: California law provides California consumers with the right to request that certain covered businesses delete personal information that they have collected from you. This “Right to Delete” is subject to certain exceptions. Furthermore, Blend Realty is not required to respond to requests for the Right to Know from users acting as an employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor of another entity or within the context of another entity in conducting due diligence regarding, or providing or receiving a product or service to or from such company. Please note, we need certain types of information so that we can provide the services to you. If you request deletion of your information and we are required to delete your information, you may no longer be able to access or use the services we provide.
Blend Realty does not sell your data: While the CCPA provides California residents with the right to opt out of the “sale” of their personal information, Blend Realty has not “sold” consumer personal information in the preceding 12 months and does not “sell” your personal information as we understand that term to be defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act and its implementing regulations. In addition, Blend Realty does not have actual knowledge that it sells the personal information of minors under 16 years of age.
Authorized Agent: When a consumer uses an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, a business may require that the consumer do the following (this does not apply when a consumer has provided the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465):
- Provide the authorized agent signed permission to do so.
- Verify their own identity directly with the business.
- Directly confirm with the business that they provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.
A business may deny a request from an authorized agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by the consumer to act on their behalf. To make an authorized request on behalf of another pursuant to consumer rights provided by California Law, please visit https://realty.blend.com/policies/personal-data-requests/.
Financial Incentives: We do not offer financial incentives for the collection of your data. If this changes, we will notify you prior to doing so, and we will obtain your consent to opt-in to this program before enrolling you.
Non-discrimination Rights: You also have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising certain of your rights under the CCPA. If you exercise your rights under the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
How other data privacy laws may affect your ability to request access to, or delete, your data: Please note that your rights and choices regarding your personal information are often subject to other laws. Personal information collected pursuant to other laws, such as information governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and the California Financial Information Privacy Act, may be exempt from requests to access or delete data.
Contact us: If would like to exercise any of these rights, please submit a request at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit https://realty.blend.com/policies/personal-data-requests/. You will be required to verify your identity before we fulfill your request. You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. To do so, you must provide us with written authorization or a power of attorney, signed by you, for the agent to act on your behalf. You will still need to verify your identity directly with us. If you have any questions regarding your rights under California law, you may reach out to us at email@example.com.
