Your privacy is vitally important to us. We will not sell, rent or share your personal information (your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number) with any third party without your express permission.
Notice about customer service e-mails
If you enter into a customer relationship with us or any affiliate that offers products and services through this site, we or they may send you, as a customer service and for your protection, e-mail confirmation of orders you have placed through this site. You may also be sent e-mail renewal notifications concerning such orders, even if you have requested not to receive other e-mail marketing communications. We will send e-mail notification of changes to any online profile you create with us and will, at your request, e-mail a forgotten password.
How we gather information from users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate, and the services provided. You can visit many pages on our site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to portions of our site, request certain features, or make a purchase. You may also provide information when you participate in contests, voting and polling activities, message boards or forums, chat rooms and other interactive areas of this site.
If you are a licensed real estate broker or agent offering property for sale or rent, the law in effect in many states requires you to disclose your company name and phone number in all marketing communications. We may require you to provide, and may automatically display such information, as we deem appropriate.
Cookies and other technology
Like most Web sites, we collect information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to you. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use “cookie” technology, which is standard on the Internet. Among other things, a cookie may store session information and, if you so elect, other information such as your e-mail address and personal address, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit or request a service, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit or bar your ability to access certain portions of this site or may require you to re-enter information each time you visit. Refusing to accept cookies may also make it impossible for us to customize the site’s features based on your preferences.
When you access a Web page, we may track your interactions with that page and report those interactions, in an aggregated form and without disclosing your personal information, to the person who published the Web page.
What we do with the information we collect
Personal information collected by us may also be used for other purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site may, in certain circumstances, be provided access to such information, but they will not have any independent right to share such information.
As we develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. User information may be among the assets transferred in such transactions. We may also disclose your information when we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by court order or by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, to protect and defend our rights and property, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of this site, and / or whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary to give such information to law enforcement authorities. Please note that we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Your choice to opt out
A controlled program of e-mail marketing may be an important element of our business and of the business of some or all of the third parties from whom you purchase products or services through this site. We make your e-mail address and other personal information (except for credit card information) available to such third parties when you enter into a customer relationship with them. If you prefer not to receive e-mail marketing communications from us or from them, you will be given an opportunity to opt out of such communications on a blanket basis. We assume, by default, that you wish to opt out of receiving e-mail marketing communications. You may access your account information to change that preference at any time.
Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements
We expect our partners, advertisers and third-party affiliates to respect your privacy. However, third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a page, content that is created or hosted by a third party. You may also be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, advertisements, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. We are not responsible for the actions or policies of such parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
What you can do to protect your privacy
We provide a number of options, including supplying your e-mail address in a database field, that facilitate your anonymous communication with parties visiting this site and with Web page owners. We suggest that you be alert to those options and avoid including your e-mail address in other areas of the site.
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from or about children under 13 except as permitted by law. If we discover we have received any information from a child under 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe we have any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact us at the address listed below.
