    When you enter your personal information in TREND MLS, know that it’s safe with us. We take our role in respecting your privacy seriously and work diligently every day to protect your data.

    While we don't sell your personal information to outside companies interested in selling their products to you or your clients, we do share your information with our partners. Our partners are companies that you know in the real estate industry and most likely, already use their services, such as Homesnap, RatePlug, Remine and others. We also send listings to Zillow, REALTOR.com and various other real estate related websites designated by your broker.

    But that is all. Please rest assured that we do not share information with outside third-party companies interested in marketing their products to you. We think that’s inappropriate and it’s not a TREND practice.


    TREND’s Privacy Policy

    Our Privacy Policy includes more about our approach to privacy and how your personal information is collected and shared. We know it may be a little dry (what Privacy Policy isn’t?) but we recommend familiarizing yourself with it. Read our Privacy Policy here.

    Tips to keep your personal information safe online

    The best way to protect your online information is to read what others are seeing about you. Go ahead Google yourself. As a real estate professional, your information is likely everywhere on the internet. But I bet you’ll find it interesting to see exactly where.

    Here are a few tips to see what other people may find out about you on the internet:
    1. Always log out before you Google yourself - This will give you a clear picture of what others see when they Google your name. Otherwise, Google may be giving you personalized search results that won’t be exactly what others see online when they search for you.
    2. Identify bad results and remove them - If you have results you don’t want being seen through a quick search, you can change the privacy setting so those results don’t come up when your name is searched. Many social networks make your profile public, so you may need to change your privacy settings to protect your content.
    3. Develop new content - When new content is posted, Google will give you a new algorithm that affects your ranks in the search engines. Updating your site frequently will affect these rankings. The better the ranking, the more information you choose and curate will be seen.
    4. Take control and be proactive - If there are photos of you online that are available through someone else’s account or website, contact the website administrator and request the photos be removed. You can either find a “Contact us” link on their site or contact the site’s hosting company, which is usually located on the bottom of their webpage.
