COLLECTING INFORMATION

When you visit my web site, I may collect information about you that you share with me. This identification information typically includes your name, email address, and perhaps your telephone number. You aren’t required to provide this information to use my web site.

By supplying your name, email address and telephone number, you create a non-binding, default “buyer agency” relationship (a lawful consumer-broker relationship) with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties that permits us to provide you with non-public information about real properties for sale or lease for your personal, non-commercial use. If you wish, you may set up searches and email alerts to notify you when new or updated property listings matching the criteria you specify become available.

Cookies: As is a widespread practice on many consumer web sites, I collect data involving your usage using “cookies” (i.e. small text files placed on your computer by consumer applications), web server logs, and other web tools. The tracking data I collect may include, but is not limited to, the date, time and location of your visit, the time you spend, the web pages you view, and basic information about your computer, such as your browser type. By continuing to browse my site, you are agreeing to my use of cookies.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies and will also provide controls that allow you to block or delete them. Instructions for blocking or deleting cookies are generally available in your browser's privacy or help documentation. If you choose to delete cookies, some settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, will be deleted and may need to be recreated. You may deactivate cookies if you do not want your browsing to be tracked but doing so may hinder your online experience on our site.

Third-party sites: When visiting my site, you may be directed, through hyperlinks, to other web sites that are beyond my control. This Privacy Policy doesn’t cover the collection of information by those other companies and consumer applications. I am responsible for their activities, such as how they handle the information they collect online.

Processing location: Your personal information is processed in the United States. For users located outside of the United States, please see the paragraph titled International Users below for more information.

USING INFORMATION COLLECTED

I primarily use the identification information you voluntarily share with me to customize your online experience and to do what you have asked of me. I also use your identification information to tell you about my services. You may instruct me not to send communications to you by following the procedure indicated below under “Contacting Me.” As for usage tracking data, I primarily use that information to operate and improve my site and to further my marketing efforts. I don’t share your information with unaffiliated third parties unless you request me to do so. I do, however, share your information with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties personnel to the extent necessary to fulfill your requests. I do reserve the right to disclose your information under limited circumstances, such as to cooperate with law enforcement or judicial authorities as required by law or legal process, to protect my own legal rights or to protect the public good.

Please note that I’ll retain the information I collect from you for as long as needed to provide the services you request.

Whenever you’re online or on our applications, you run the risk that the information you give out will fall into the wrong hands. I cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide to me. I accept no responsibility or liability for the activities of third parties.

YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

If you’d like to review the information about you that I’ve collected, to change that information, you can make that request by following the procedure indicated below under “Contacting Me.” I may require that you verify your identity before we process your request.

ANTI-FRAUD DISCLOSURE

Electronic communications such as email, text messages, and social media messaging are neither secure nor confidential. While real estate brokerages have adopted policies and procedures to aid in avoiding fraud, even the best security protections can still be bypassed by unauthorized parties. No broker or agent will ever send you any electronic communication with instructions to transfer funds or to provide nonpublic personal information, such as credit card or debit numbers or bank account and/or routing numbers.

YOU SHOULD NEVER TRANSMIT NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION, SUCH AS CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD NUMBERS OR BANK ACCOUNT OR ROUTING NUMBERS, BY EMAIL OR OTHER UNSECURED ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION. EMAILS ATTEMPTING TO INDUCE FRAUDULENT WIRE TRANSFERS ARE COMMON AND MAY APPEAR TO COME FROM A TRUSTED SOURCE.

If you receive any electronic communication directing you to transfer funds or provide nonpublic personal information, EVEN IF THAT ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION APPEARS TO BE FROM YOUR REAL ESTATE BROKER OR AGENT, do not respond to it and immediately contact your real estate agent by telephone or another means. DO NOT USE THE CONTACT INFORMATION DISPLAYED IN THE COMMUNICATION YOU RECEIVED. Such requests, even if they may otherwise appear to be from your real estate agent or another person connected with your property transaction, are likely part of a scheme to defraud you by stealing funds from you or using your identity to commit a crime.

UPDATING MY PRIVACY POLICY

I may, from time to time, change my Privacy Policy.

EFFECTIVE DATE: 

This Privacy Policy is effective as of October 30, 2020.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

Under California law, California residents have the right to request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship (1) a list of categories of personal information, such as name, address, e-mail address, and the type of services provided to the customer, that a business has disclosed to third parties (including affiliates that are separate legal entities) during the immediately preceding calendar year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes and (2) the names and addresses of all such third parties.
