Our Commitment to Privacy
Information We Collect From You and About You
We collect personal and financial information from you while you use the site, and most of this collection occurs during registration. Some information is required and some is optional, some will remain private and some will be displayed to other users. We always let you know which is which. Additional information may be gathered during your subsequent use of the site, whenever you choose to provide it.(“the Personal Information”)
Certain personal information must be supplied during the member and investor registration processes, as indicated below, in order to (a) enable registered users to login to the site, (b) verify investors’ identities, (c) establish investors’' ability to invest by verifying that they are at least 18 years of age and qualify as accredited investors, (d) comply with SEC regulations, (e) complete background checks to comply with anti-money laundering and PATRIOT Act regulations, and (f) guard against potential fraud.

In addition, we gather names and email addresses of people who contact us through our web site with questions about our company or its operations. We collect this information for the sole purpose of responding to such inquiries and do not store the contact information unless requested by these people, such as in the case of job applicants who submit resumes, etc.
Finally, we (and/or our service providers) collect information about your computer and your visits to our web site, such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit, and page views through the use of log files. We (and/or our service providers) use this aggregated information in the administration of our web site to improve its usability and to evaluate the success of particular marketing/advertising campaigns, search engine optimization strategies and other marketing activities. We (and/or our service providers) use non-identifying and aggregated information to help optimize our web site based on the needs of our users. Additionally, third parties may collect certain similar information about your computer and other pages you may visit when you visit our web site, as discussed further below.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Tell-a-Friend and Other User Referral Activities
Users may choose to refer friends to the site or directly to their loan listings via email. You can import contacts from your Outlook or other email account address books to invite them to become members of our site. We collect the username and password for the email account you wish to import your contacts from and will only use it for that purpose.
If this referral occurs independently of our site or a partner’s site, we do not track the referral other than as a unique page view. Since we do not collect any information from the referring party or the recipient of the external email referencing our site, we do not capture or store any information about either party. If friends refer each other to our site, we will store and track information about the referring and receiving parties only long enough to determine the effectiveness of our marketing activities which contributed to the referral.
Our users can also refer friends to the site by completing a simple form to generate an email invitation. The information collected in this process is only kept long enough to monitor whether the referral program is achieving the desired results in terms of attracting new visitors to the site and converting them into members. Again, these are messages initiated by friends of the recipients, and the recipients will not be added to any mailing list or contacted by the Company apart from this referral process, which may include invitation reminders. In the case where a bonus is offered to a member in return for the referral, the Company will only retain the information about the referred parties to properly credit the account of the member initiating the referral. The information is not used for any other purpose
Your friend may contact us at to ask that we remove their information from our database

Notifications United States Real Estate Corporation will send you email notifications from time to time, and these are required elements of your transactions on our web site, such as confirmations of particular actions you have taken. These required notices are sent typically to notify you of a change in status such as when you are confirmed as an investor, or for legal or security purposes. For example, certain notifications are sent for your own protection to ensure that no one can make a change to your account without your knowledge, such as confirming the addition of a new email address or linked external bank account.

Data Security, Integrity and Retention The security, integrity and confidentiality of your information are important to us. We use commercially reasonable efforts to follow generally accepted standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. When you enter sensitive information (such as bank account information) on our Site, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We also may use third party ID verification to ensure our users’ true identities are validated. From time to time, we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technology and methods. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that your information, including but not limited to Personal Information, will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. We cannot assume responsibility or liability for unauthorized access to our servers and systems. We will retain your information for as long as your Account is active or as needed to provide you services unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. If you wish to cancel your Account or request that we no longer user your information please contact us at If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can also contact us at as well.
Encryption & Web Site Certificates Industry standard encryption protects the information you share with us from the moment it leaves your computer until it reaches our systems. Look for the secure “locked padlock” on your browser to confirm the identity of our web site and that your connection is secure. Consult your Web browser documentation for more information.
Session time-outs We employ session time-outs to protect your account. You will be logged out of the site automatically after a period of inactivity. This reduces the risk of others being able to access your account if you leave your computer unattended.
Passwords You should never share your password with anyone. Your password is not known to any Company employee or third-party, and we will never ask for your password by phone or email. If you ever receive a communication claiming to be from us that asks for your password, you should immediately report it by contacting us at
ID theft policy If an investor suspects that they have experienced ID theft, please contact us at We will work with law enforcement authorities to track down and prosecute anyone who has committed identity theft.
What You Can Do In addition to our own substantial efforts, you can take several precautions to protect the security of your computer and Personal Information. For instance, you can start by using a well-chosen password. You should avoid using any information that others can easily learn about you, such as a family member’s name or birthday, and you can also use special characters in place of letters. We also recommend that you change your password frequently. You can also install and regularly update antivirus and firewall software to protect your computer from external attacks by malicious users. When you are finished with a session on our site, be sure that you log out and close the browser window.
To protect your account, we send automatic notifications confirming certain actions taken on your account, such as changes to a password or external linked account. We do this for your own protection so that you can be sure no one else is making changes to your account without your knowledge. However, the security offered through these notifications can be undermined if other people have access to your email account. Therefore, you might consider restricting access to the email account you registered with on this site and/or changing your password on that email account frequently.
If you use a computer that is accessed by other people, such as in a public library or Internet cafe, we recommend that you take special precautions to protect the security of your account and personal data. When you are finished using our site, you should log out completely, then close the browser window and clear the browser’s cache files.
You should also be aware of fraudulent attempts to gain access to your account information known as "phishing." Phishing is a tactic used by scammers in which unsuspecting people are brought to a web site by a genuine-looking email purporting to be from a legitimate company. The phony or "spoof" email takes the person to a web site that looks legitimate but in fact is not. Either in the email itself or on this fake site, scammers will ask for login information to gain access to people’s accounts and withdraw their money. We will never ask you for your login information in the context of any email. In general, you can protect yourself against phishing by never providing personal or login information via an email instead, go the web site directly. You might also make it a habit to check the URL of a web site to be sure that it begins with the correct domain. In the case of our Company, you should always ensure the URL begins with www.usrecorp.com.
