DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We gather two types of customer information: the data that you voluntary provide to us when registering on our site, and data we gather through aggregated tracking of page views throughout our site. Aggregate information is non-personally identifiable information about you, and may include your IP address, the time and frequency of your visits and the features on our website which you viewed.
You have the option, when visiting our website, of creating an account so that you can receive alerts, contact agents, follow homes, or gather information about our services or the communities we serve. Such information is provided to us with your authorization or consent. The information that you provide to us, such as your name, address, telephone number and email address, is not sold or shared with anyone. This privacy procedure applies to both current, and former, clients.
Additionally, we do not disclose any non-public personal information about current or former clients obtained in the course of representation, except as expressly or impliedly authorized by those clients to enable us to effectuate the purpose of our representation or as required or permitted by law or applicable provisions of the licensing regulations or ethical rules governing our conduct.
We may collect a social security number from you in order to obtain a credit report to support an offer to lease or purchase. We do not disclose this social security number to any person except as permitted or required by law. No person in this firm has authority to obtain or use the number for any purpose that you have not specifically authorized. When disposing of the social security number or credit report, the number will be shredded, and if kept electronically, erased or destroyed so it is unreadable.
We may also gather additional search information about your visit to our website based on your search history. Such information enables us to tailor our content to fit your needs better and to help advertisers understand our audience. We do not disclose personal information to third parties without your consent. This information can track the frequency of visits, pages viewed and other trends. It allows us to contact you to suggest tools and services to assist you in your search, or to inform you of new real estate listings or relevant products, information or news. You have the option of opting out of receiving promotional emails from us by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email.
