Madison 1031
Privacy Policy

  • Madison Exchange, LLC d/b/a Madison 1031 has developed a Privacy Policy in order to articulate the strategies we employ to safeguard the confidentiality and privacy of our clients’ information.

    IDENTIFIABLE AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

    When a person or company becomes a Madison 1031 client, we recognize that our client will deposit sensitive business, financial and real estate documents with us, along with other information needed, to perform the 1031 Exchange.

    Madison 1031 receives two types of information from users of our service:

    1. "Personally Identifiable Information," defined as registration information (name and address), and financial information pertaining to the service, and communications between our client and others regarding the transactions.
    2. “Third-Party Identifiable Information,” including names and addresses of parties identified in the transaction, such as the buyer of the relinquished property, their lender, attorney and Realtor, and the seller of the replacement property, their lender, attorney and Realtor.

    Madison 1031 will not disclose a client’s Personally Identifiable Information or Third-Party Identifiable Information to a non-related Third Party except when we have the client’s express permission or under special circumstances set forth below.

    Personally Identifiable Information and Third-Party Identifiable Information may be disclosed under the following circumstances:

    • To send information to the client or a Related Third Party about or as part of the service when necessary;
    • When required by law enforcement authorities, upon receipt of appropriate documentation;
    • If necessary, in our good faith judgment, to protect our legal rights, or if the information relates to actual or threatened harmful conduct;
    • To third-party contractors (such as Madison 1031’s Internet Service Provider, search engine optimization vendor, PR firm, etc.) that assist us with our operations, provided, however, that our contractors use only such information as is necessary to perform specific tasks, and are required by agreement to maintain the confidentiality of any data they receive; or
    • If Madison 1031 or Madison Commercial Real Estate Services were acquired, the Personally Identifiable Information and Third-Party Identifiable Information of Madison 1031’s clients would be transferred to the acquiring entity. We may disclose aggregate data or analysis regarding the use of the Madison 1031’s web site and services to non-Related Third Party companies for marketing or other business purposes. All such aggregate data and the reports derived therefrom will not contain any Personally Identifiable Information or Third-Party Identifiable Information.

    All scanning, copying and sending of data will be handled by Madison 1031 employees who are bound by non-disclosure agreements.

    Madison 1031 and its parent company, Madison Commercial Real Estate Services, maintain user information for system administration and billing purposes. If a client cancels a transaction or closes an account, that client’s user information will be kept on file as long as is necessary for legal and financial auditing purposes.

    CHANGES TO THE PRIVACY POLICY

    If we plan to make significant changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post those changes to the Privacy Policy page before they take effect.
