Personal Information. We collect information that personally identifies you, such as your name, your business name, address, telephone number, username, e-mail, payment information, and other personally identifiable information that you choose to provide us with, including via the Sites (“Personal Information”). We collect Personal Information only if you choose to share it with us. The decision to provide this information is optional. However, if you choose not to provide the requested information, you may not be able to use certain features of the Sites.
Usage Data. We automatically collect anonymous usage information that does not identify an individual user (“Usage Data”). For example, each time you use the Site we automatically collect the type of Web browser you use, your operating system, your Internet Service Provider, your IP address, the pages you view, and the time and duration of your visits. We use this information to help us understand how people use the Sites, and to enhance the services we offer.
How We Use Information and When We May Share and Disclose Information
Service Providers. From time to time, we or Your REALTOR® may establish a business relationship with other businesses whom we, he or she believe is trustworthy and who we have asked to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management, or marketing and promotions. We only provide our Service Providers with the information necessary or helpful for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information other than for the purpose for which such information was provided or as authorized by you.
