"Data privacy has always been a top priority for us; that has not changed. We are introducing the Dotloop Data Privacy Guarantee to provide increased transparency on this topic, making it very clear that dotloop customers own their data and that their data will not be used for Zillow Group products or services without their permission."

The Dotloop Data Privacy Guarantee affirms that:

  • Dotloop customers own the data they put into dotloop. This includes all customer data, from user information to transaction data.
