Property Details Displayed on CompareProperty.in
CompareProperty.in accepts India property listings directly from consumers (ie sellers and buyers) and from agents, letting agents, property brokers, new homes developers, landlords, property owners and overseas property owners. If you are the owner of a property being displayed for sale or for rent on our website this is because either you or the agent you have chosen to use for the sale or the letting of your property has a contract with us to display the details of your property on our Site and thereby place the information about your property fully in the public domain.
Details held by us about a property do not comprise personal data. CompareProperty.in may use the data which we hold about properties advertised to provide professional valuation services and other data services to third parties. If your property is listed for sale or rent on CompareProperty.in you may ask us not to use some or all of the details of your property to provide such data services. In this event please write to the Data Controller, Compare Property Private Limited, datacontroller@compareproperty dot in, stating your full name and address, confirmation that you are the owner of the property upon whose instructions we are entitled to act, the full postal address of your property, the date it was placed on the website for sale or rent, and the name address and telephone number of the agent you have instructed to market the property. We will consider your request but are not under an obligation to take any action in this regard (e.g. taking your property off of our Site); this is ultimately a matter to be dealt with between you and your estate agent.
Changes to the policy
We may change this policy from time to time as we add new services or features or in response to changes in the law or our commercial arrangements. Any changes to this policy will be posted on this Site. Please check this page from time to time and take notice of any changes.
