In addition to the information provided by you, we may automatically receive and record information from your Internet browser, including your IP address, cookie information, and the pages you request.
The Website is not directed to children and we do not knowingly solicit data from children or knowingly market to children.
We use information you provide on an aggregated basis to do such things as operate our site, enhance our site, and to better understand the profile of our online audience. We may also use this data, both aggregate and personal to you, to enhance your site experience on our site by displaying content and marketing messages that we believe will be of interest to you. In some cases we use your personal information to contact you or to provide information to you, such as to send you information that you request. We may provide your information to third parties such as homebuilders and service and product providers to enable them to follow-up with you on your requests. We may also use your information for market research purposes, for project planning or for developing prospect lists for our existing and future communities. In doing so, we may reproduce, publish, broadcast or post such information to third parties assisting with our planning.
We may share your personal information with our employees, auditors, contractors and consultants and other parties, including our subsidiaries and affiliated companies who require such information to assist us with administering our business. These include third parties that provide services to us or on our behalf, third parties that collaborate with us, and third parties with whom we contract to perform our services.
We will not sell or rent your personal information or share your personal information with third parties or nonaffiliated companies, except with your permission, or under the following limited circumstances:
- We may need to share your information or send your information to partners who work on our behalf in order to provide the information, product or services you have requested, or to help us communicate with you (provided that these companies do not have any independent rights to use the personally identifiable information we provide to them beyond what is necessary to assist us, unless they have your consent to do so);
- We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information about our users with builders and service and product providers for marketing and promotional purposes;
- We may store and disclose personal information as allowed or required by applicable law, including making disclosures in order to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process;
- We may establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims as necessary or advisable to protect the rights, safety or property of our communities or others and to conform to legal or regulatory requirements;
- We may share information if it is publicly available (other than as a result of disclosure in violation of this Policy); and
- We may transfer information about you in connection with a merger, joint venture or the acquisition of all or a portion of our assets.
We require your consent to collect, use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Policy. Consent may be expressed or implied. Express consent may be given orally or in writing, including electronic transmission. Implied consent is consent that can be reasonably inferred by your action or inaction. By providing us with the personal information described in this Policy, we assume you have impliedly provided us with your consent to collect, use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Policy. Unless otherwise notified by you to do otherwise, we use all information in accordance with this Policy under which the information was collected. If you do not agree to any provision of this Policy, or any update or modification thereto, please do not use our Website.
You may withdraw or limit your consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information at any time. You must provide reasonable notice of the withdrawal of your consent. All communications with respect to the withdrawal or limitation of your consent should be directed to us in writing. Our contact information is below.
Accuracy and Retention of Personal Information
We endeavor to ensure that any personal information in its possession is as accurate, current and complete as necessary for the purposes for which we use that information. If your personal information changes or you believe information we have about you is not accurate, please notify us as soon as reasonably possible. Any request to verify or correct your personal information must be made in writing. In some circumstances, we may not agree to your request to change your personal information, but will instead append an alternative text to the record in question.
We keep your personal information only as long as it is required for the reasons it was collected. The length of time we retain information varies, depending on the product or service and the nature of the information. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with us but it will only be for as long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise at a later date and to comply with applicable law and regulatory requirements. When we no longer require your personal information, we will either destroy or erase it, or we will make it anonymous such that it cannot be associated with or tracked to you.
Safeguarding Personal Information
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We endeavor to maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to prevent your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification or disclosure. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and despite our efforts to maintain the privacy of your information, third parties (hackers) may unlawfully intercept or access information or confidential transmissions.
Access to Your Personal Information
You may ask to see the personal information we have about you. A request to review your personal information must be made in writing. We will endeavor to provide the information requested within a reasonable time from the date of the written request, or within the time otherwise required by law.
If you make a request to review your personal information, we may request specific information from you to enable us to confirm your identity and right to access such information. We may also require information that would assist us in locating your personal information. If permitted by law, we may charge a fee to access your personal information; if so, we will notify you of that fee at the time you make your request or within a short time thereafter.
Subject to any disclosure required by applicable law, we reserve the right to decline to provide access to personal information in certain circumstances. These include, but are not limited to, circumstances where the information requested:
- Would disclose personal information, including opinions, about another individual;
