Verification of Accredited Investor Status: If you chose to invest in an offering featured on the Site, you must be an Accredited Investor and we must verify that you are an Accredited Investor.

Financing: Our Investment Entities may seek financing por refinancing of real estate projects which they own and, in connection therewith, the prospective lenders may require information on the identity of the investors holding interests therein. Information collected through our Site, including Personal Data is considered our trade secret or proprietary information. As the owner of such information, we may disclose or sell such information as an asset of the company in conjunction with the financing or refinancing by a third party of one or more of our Investment Entities or a portion of our assets.
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: BRE, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, fund administration, accounting and tax, verifying Accredited Investor status, custody and other bank accounts, maintaining databases, ID verification, processing applications, and processing payments and completing transactions. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information, including Personal Data, that they need to perform their specific function. These companies are authorized to use your Personal Data only as necessary to provide these services to us.
Legal Requirements: BRE may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) to comply with the law, cooperate and respond to requests and claims or comply with legal process served on us (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order), (ii) to enforce or apply our Site Terms, Confidentiality Agreement, and other policies or agreements (including to initiate, render, bill, and collect for amounts owed to us), (iii) to protect and defend us or our user’s rights or property, the Site, our employees, visitors or the public, (including protecting and defending from fraud, abuse, and unlawful use of the Site), or (iv) if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
