Your email address, country of residence and first and last names will be visible only to those people who take the time to register with our site as home owner and house sitter members.
Be assured that any other information you provided when you registered (such as your home address) will not be displayed under any circumstances, except as an icon on a map. Note however that logged in members cannot zoom in to see your actual house.
For house sitters, if you provide your phone number in your registration form, these will optionally be visible to registered home owner members (depending on the settings in your listing). Please note that it would be helpful to your success as a house sitter if you include your full name when you register as a member. Home owners require this kind of transparency from house sitters.
In addition, you can also choose to make your listing invisible to Google and other search engines. Just click the 'hide from Google' checkbox on the 'Edit my listing' page, under the 'Miscellaneous' tab.For house sitters
You can choose to make your listing invisible to Google and other search engines at any time by ticking the 'hide from Google' checkbox on the 'Edit my listing' page, under the 'Miscellaneous' tab. Please note that your listing will still be searchable using the MindMyHouse search if you select this option. Also, it may take Google a while to take note of the changes - sorry but there isn't anything we can do about that.For house sitters
Unfortunately there is no easy answer to this question, as it depends on where you are and the laws of that particular country and region.
It is MindMyHouse policy however that if home owners have cameras or recording devices on their property, they must declare this to the house sitter before the assignment starts, so that this can be discussed and that there are no surprises.
We have tried to help by including a special declaration regarding this in our "House sitter agreement" document (in section five) which you can download before the assignment starts. In this section, home owners can declare the locations of these devices as well as the times of operation. Also, house sitters can declare whether they consent to the home owner operating the devices or not.For house sitters
