Privacy Statement

Your Guarantee of SPAM-Free Privacy

At www.lesseeadvocate.com we want to do our part to make the world spam-free (or "spamless" if you prefer). We will not sell, rent, or swap your email address to third parties. We will not send you email that you have not asked us for. SPAM will not come from us. Here are the details on the safety of your information:

Your Personal Data

We collect and hold your name, email address, and zip code in order to send you the newsletters you have requested in a personalized manner. You can unsubscribe at any time for any reason. If you ever have a problem with your subscription, feel free to contact Customer Service at service@lesseeadvocate.com.com.

The Lessee Advocate does not sell, rent, or swap email lists (ever). Your information is available to The Lessee Advocate organization and one of our sponsors, Ecologic Leasing Services, who continues to participate in and support our editorial team. They were our very first and founding sponsor and without them we would never have launched or been able to bootstrap this service. You can read their privacy policy at: http://www.ecologicleasing.com/documents/ps.pdf. Sponsorship is one of the ways we support this site. We will not share your name with "marketing partners" unless you pro-actively check a box on our site personally requesting that your name be added to a partner’s list. These boxes are never pre-checked – you actively have to volunteer to be on any lists!

The Lessee Advocate automatically collects and/or tracks (1) the home server domain names, e-mail addresses, type of client computer, and type of Web browser of visitors to its Web sites, (2) the e-mail addresses of visitors that communicate with The Lessee Advocate via e-mail, or (3) information knowingly provided by the visitor in online forms, registration forms, surveys, and contest entries, and (4) information on what pages visitors access.

Personal data collected by The Lessee Advocate will be used by The Lessee Advocate for editorial and feedback purposes, for a statistical analysis of users’ behavior, for product development, for content improvement, and to customize content and layout of our Web sites. We use postal code (zip code) information to personalize the information you receive by geographically filtering information that may not apply to you (for example state specific tax issues or regulations; another example is that we also write about issues affecting our subscribers in other countries). Essentially, we use your information to improve our services to you.

The Lessee Advocate may contact site visitors regarding account status, privacy policy, or any other policies or agreements relevant to site visitors.

CAN-SPAM compliance plans

By November 1, 2005, we plan to add a new feature to our subscription management page that will enable us to become CAN-SPAM compliant. You will be able to use the form to add your name to our suppression "Promo Do Not Email" list. This is separate from our editorial lists, so you can be signed up for newsletters and also stop all promo communications regarding our products.

Your Friend’s Email Address

You may notice throughout this site we offer you the chance to send a friend an article or a note telling them about the site. Feel free to take advantage of these opportunities because your friend is also covered by Leasing For Treasurer’s Spam-Free Privacy policy.

We will only use your friend’s email address in order to send the message you asked us to send. After that they will never receive a communications from us again unless they voluntarily subscribe to our services.

The Problems With “Tell a Friend”

We recognize that there are some unfortunate (i.e. mean, nasty, rude, etc.) people out there who may abuse our "Tell a Friend" tool to send some email to a person who is NOT a friend and who does not want to get email from us.

Unfortunately this is a built-in danger when you offer people the convenience of forwarding an article to a friend. If someone using our system sends you something you do not want, we apologize with out reservation.

Special Reports

In addition to our regular, mostly-quarterly issues we may occasionally send you Special Reports that you may find valuable. These are always editorial in nature. They are neither advertisements nor purely commercial. They are always written by our own in-house editorial team. We will not send you anyone else’s content under our brand without explicitly identifying them. Here is a good example of a special report: we may send you a summary of our notes after an important leasing trade show.

Unsubscribing

We have followed trailblazers in this industry in making it easy to unsubscribe. Just look for the "Manage Subscriptions" link at the top and bottom of every page of our site.

That link also helps you change email addresses quickly and easily.

Alternatively, just reply to a newsletter issue with only the word "unsubscribe" in the subject line. This will unsubscribe you from that particular newsletter.
