Cross Realty promises to protect the personal information given to us by visitors to our website and information included on our electronic mail lists. Any information that you give to Cross Realty will be held with the utmost care, and will not be used in any way to which you have not consented. A more detailed explanation follows.
COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
Much of the general information on the Cross Realty web site (callcrossrealty.com) can be accessed without needing to register or log in – and we therefore collect no information about you whatsoever when you are accessing these generic areas of our web site. To search our database of properties for sale you may select one of three search methods.
Anonymous: You may elect to remain completely anonymous when you search for properties on the Cross Realty web site (callcrossrealty.com). If you select this option we do not collect any personal information from you.
My Listing Manager: Users who wish to access more detailed property information and extended searching features (such as the ability to save favorite listings, save searches and have new listings e-mailed to them automatically) may register to create a user account. To create a “My Listing Manager” account visitors are asked to provide certain contact information. We do not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease this personal information to anyone. NOTE: if your browser settings do not allow cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of some of the “My Listing Manager” features. See below for more details about cookies.
Voluntary E-Mail Lists: Once you have registered to create a “My Listing Manager” account, you will be invited to sign up to receive e-mail alerts about properties that match search criteria you establish. We configure our list server software to refuse to divulge the personal information on our list to anyone but us. The information is not, for example, available to other subscribers. Your agent at Cross Realty can help you modify and manage these lists. You can correct, change or remove subscription information from our email lists from within your “My Listing Manager” account” page after logging in.
Browser information collected on the website: As with many website operators, Cross Realty analyzes our website logs to constantly improve the value of our website to our visitors. We maintain real-time reporting to us and our authorized agents of browser accesses to our site. This includes page views, unique views, unique visitors, repeat visitors, frequency of visits, and peak-volume traffic periods. In our use of this service, we do not gather, request, record, require, collect, or track any Internet users' personally identifiable information.
By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is sent, or to reject all cookies. For more information on how to modify your browser settings to block or filter cookies, see http://www.cookiecentral.com/faq/. However, please note that if you reject some or all cookies, your experience at our site and on other sites throughout the World Wide Web may not be complete. Specifically, if you do not allow cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of the “My listing Manager” features described above.
Other uses of your personal information: In addition to using information about you for the specific purposes set out above, from time to time we may also use your personal information to send you news about our organization and new features available on the Cross Realty web site (callcrossrealty.com).
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION:
Resale or disclosure of information to third parties: Cross Realty does not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease personal information collected on our callcrossrealty.com website or included on our e-mail lists to any third party. When Cross Realty employs subcontractors that may have access to personal information, they are bound by a confidentiality agreement to ensure that they exercise the same level of care when handling your personal information as we do.
We take precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
DATA QUALITY AND ACCESS:
Cross Realty provides you with the opportunity to know about the information that Cross Realty holds about you, together with the ability to correct, amend or delete, as appropriate, any such information that is incomplete or inaccurate. Should you wish to exercise any of these options or should you have any questions or concerns about information that Cross Realty has collected in relation to you, please feel free to contact us by sending a message to email@example.com.
We comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulation establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children under 13. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13. It is possible that due to fraud or deception by others, we may unknowingly receive information pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, once we have verified the information, we will promptly delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information in relation to children under 13, please do so by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION TRANSFERS
Any personally identifiable information that you provide to Cross Realty will be collected directly on servers located in the United States and maintained on servers located in the United States. If you are located outside the United States, this means that any information you provide will be transferred abroad. While Cross Realty is committed to providing your information with the highest level of privacy protection, we believe you should know that the general level of protection for personal information in the United States may not be the same as that provided in other countries, including those that belong to the European Economic Area.
