We at Kindred Real Estate (referred to as “we,” “us,” or “our”) recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of certain information (“Information”) collected about our customers and prospective customers (referred to as “Customers,” “you” or “your”). This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it. It is our intention to give you an understanding about how we collect your Information and the use we make of it in the course of our business.
How do we collect Information?
We collect information by specifically requesting it from you. Generally this occurs when you register at a site or request information or a service. Usually, we use your information to operate the site and to improve the delivery of our services. Our site also may use your information to inform you about other products or services available from us.
Use of Internet Protocol (“IP”) Addresses
With whom do we share your Information?
As a general rule we will not disclose any specific personal information that you submit to us about you (“Personal Information”) in a manner that connects you with the Personal Information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. The following describes some of the ways that your Personal Information may be disclosed.
Business Partners & Brokers
We may disclose some or all of your Personal Information to business partners, brokers, or similar associates, but this use will be specifically described to you prior to data collection or prior to transferring the data. By requesting more information, you give us permission to transfer your Personal Information to our contact list so we may fulfill your request. In many instances, only your e-mail address will be shared. If more Personal Information will be shared you will be notified prior to the transfer.
How can you control the usage of Information?
In case you change your mind or some Personal Information changes (such as your zip code or e-mail address), we will try to provide a way to correct, update or remove the Personal Information that you give us. We also give you the opportunity to control the communications we direct to you. We offer Customers the opportunity to “opt out” of having Personal Information shared with parties outside of our company or our affiliated companies.
What happens when you link to a third party site?
You should be aware that when you are on our site you could hyperlink or be directed to other sites that are beyond our control and/or outside our service. For example, if you “click” on a banner advertisement or an article from our site, the “click” may transfer you off this website. These other sites may send their own cookies to Customers, collect data, or solicit Information.
We do not control such sites, and, therefore, are not responsible for their contents or the hyperlinks or advertising they choose to place on such sites. Our inclusion of hyperlinks to these sites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such sites or any association with their operators. Our policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, which is beyond our control.
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out information online (for example, via message boards or chat) that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While we strive to protect our Customers’ information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, and you disclose such information at your own risk.
Is your Information secure from others using our site?
The importance of security of all information associated with our Customers is an important concern to us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. “Perfect security” does not exist on the Internet.
