Mason & Morse, Inc. - Privacy Policy

We at Mason Morse Real Estate (“MMR”) recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of certain information collected about our customers and prospective customers. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it.

MMR gathers two types of information about customers: data that customers provide through optional, voluntary registration on our sites; and data MMR gathers through aggregated tracking, mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. Such information enables us to tailor our content to fit customers' needs better. However, be assured that MMR will not disclose personal information to third parties without your consent, except as may be noted in this Privacy Policy or disclosed to you when the information is submitted.

How Does MMR Collect Information?

Optional Registration
We collect information by specifically requesting it from you. Generally this occurs when you register on our site or request information or a service. Usually, we use your information to operate the site and to deliver services. MMR’s site also uses your information to inform you about other products or services available from MMR.

Usage Tracking
MMR collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our site. When customers request pages from MMR, our servers log the customers' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a customer’s session will be logged, but the customer will remain anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a customer when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our site terms of use or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.

MMR has two primary uses for ‘cookies’. First, we use them to specify a customer’s preferences. For example, customers can specify keywords across several categories or markets so you don't have to tell us repeatedly about certain features in the home you are seeking. Second, we use cookies to track customers' Web site usage trends and patterns. This helps us understand our customers' needs better and improve areas of MMR's services that our customers find valuable. While both of these activities depend on the use of cookies, you have the option of disabling the cookies via your browser preferences.

With Whom Does MMR Share My Information?
As a general rule MMR will not disclose any specific personal information that you submit to us about you in a manner that connects you with the personal information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances described below. The following describes some of the ways that your personal information may be disclosed.

Third Party & Aggregate Data: From time to time, you may be offered the opportunity to receive materials or special offers from third parties. If you opt to receive information from these third parties, MMR will (with your permission) share your name and e-mail address with such third parties. Under confidentiality agreements, MMR may match Personal Information with third party data. Also, MMR may keep track of what portions of the Web site customers are visiting and other customer statistics, and aggregate this information to help us create a better experience for users of our Web site. This is all done without knowing your name or other personal information in order to describe our viewers and services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.

Other: MMR may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. MMR may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating MMR's terms of use or terms of service, or may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with any of MMRs rights or property, other MMR customers, or anyone else.

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. If a customer wishes to update personal information or objects to any usage provided herein for any reason, he/she may e-mail the requested change to:

What Happens When You Link to a Third Party Site?
You should be aware that when you are on MMR's sites you could hyperlink or be directed to other sites that are beyond our control and/or outside our service. These other sites may include sites of advertisers, sponsors and partners. These other sites may send their own cookies to customers, collect data, or solicit information.

MMR does not control such sites, and, therefore, is not responsible for their contents or the hyperlinks or advertising they choose to place on such sites. MMR's inclusion of hyperlinks to these sites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such sites or any association with their operators. MMR's policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, which is beyond MMR's control.

Is My Information Secure from Others Using the MMR 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. Once we receive your transmission, MMR uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers.

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out information online that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While MMR strives to protect its customers' information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, and you disclose such information at your own risk.

Your Acceptance Of These Terms
By using this site, you signify your agreement to MMR's Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS SITE. Your continued use of MMR's site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.
