What information do we collect automatically?
When you visit the Website, and in the course of providing the Services, we collect information about you that does not identify you personally. This information may include the type of computer and browser you are using, Uniform Resource Locators (“URLs”) used by you to access the Website, your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, your Machine Access Control (“MAC”) address, and what web service you are using. We may also collect the date, time, and length of visit, and the pages you visit. Collecting this information helps us design the site and the services to best suit your needs. This information may be compiled and analyzed on both an individual and an aggregate basis.
What information do we collect as part of the services?
In the course of using the services, you are required to provide certain Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) to us, including your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), e-mail address, telephone number, and other information about you and your business that allows us to contact you in person or online. In addition, non-personal information that is automatically collected or that you provide may be linked with your PII in order to improve the provision of the services. We may gather additional personal or non-personal information in the future. Depending on which part of the services you choose to access, some information we ask you to provide is mandatory and some is voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information with respect to a portion of the services, you will be unable to access that portion of the services.

How do we share the information we collect?

We may also share your information with other providers of real estate-related services that we work with (“Service Partners”), such as lenders that may contact you regarding your mortgage needs. You may opt out of such sharing at any time by following the opt-out procedures in the Terms and Conditions. Our employees, agents, Service Partners, and brokers are contractually bound to use your PII solely in connection with providing the services to you, and may not use it for any other purpose.
We may be required by law to provide information about you to government authorities, including law enforcement, homeland security, and intelligence agencies.
