Real Estate Talks dot com Privacy Policy

RealEstateTalks.com will never share information about you without your permission.

RealEstateTalks.com believes that strong electronic privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a service, commercial, and entertainment medium. To this end, unless you designate otherwise, the information you enter here will be known to only two parties: you and RealEstateTalks.com.

We pledge that RealEstateTalks.com will not release your personal data to anyone else without your consent - period.

You may change the status of whether you wish to receive RealEstateTalks.com offers and communications at any time.

When we do present information to our advertisers, unless you tell us otherwise, it is in the form of aggregate statistics compiled among all of our visitors' answers to survey questions as well as grouped on-site behavior.

1. What information does RealEstateTalks.com gather/track and how is it used?

Use of traffic data
Each time a visitor comes to RealEstateTalks.com, we collect some information to improve the overall quality of the online experience. At RealEstateTalks.com we collect the visitor's domain name (e.g., whether the user is logged on from telus.net or shaw.ca), referral data (e.g., we record the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to RealEstateTalks.com), and browser and platform type (e.g., a Safari browser on a Macintosh platform).

RealEstateTalks.com also logs IP addresses for systems administration purposes. IP addresses are logged to track a user's session. This gives RealEstateTalks.com an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a users session will be tracked, but the user will be anonymous.

Use of Cookies
RealEstateTalks.com uses a feature of your browser to set a "cookie" on your computer. The cookie allows you to automatically login every time you visit RealEstateTalks.com (no need to type the user name/password every time). The cookie also allows us to measure and report aggregate information to advertisers such as the number of people who see their ad (reach) and the number of times people see their ad (frequency). It also allows us to deliver ads that are more relevant to you and avoid delivering the same ads too many times.

Cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to find out the identity of any user. RealEstateTalks.com will only store information provided voluntarily, but this information is not personally identifiable. If for some reason you would rather not take advantage of the benefits made possible with cookies, most browsers allow you to reject cookies or to choose which cookies to accept.

2. With whom does RealEstateTalks.com share the information it gathers/tracks?

Demographic Information
When we do present information to our advertisers, it is in the form of grouped statistics compiled from all our participating users' answers to survey questions and on-site behavior. RealEstateTalks.com will not disclose the contact or demographic information of any individual user to advertisers or any other outside organization.
