We at CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez (referred to as "we," "us," or "our") recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of certain information ("Information") collected about our customers and prospective customers (referred to as "Customers," "you" or "your"). This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it. At CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez, it is our intention to give you an understanding about how we collect your Information and the use we make of it in the course of our business.

 

To that end, CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez gathers two types of information about Customers: data that Customers provide through optional, voluntary registration on our sites; and data CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez 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 and to help our agents understand our audience.

Be assured that CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez 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 CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez collect Information?

• Optional Registration
We collect information by specifically requesting it from you. Generally this occurs when you register at a site or request information or a service. Usually, the CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez sites and CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez's service partners use your information to operate the sites and to deliver services. CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez sites also use your information to inform you about other products or services available from CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez and its affiliates

• Usage tracking
Use of Internet Protocol ("IP") Addresses

An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Internet so that your computer can be identified by the main computers, known as "Web servers," that "serve up" Web pages.

CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez and/or its affiliates collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregated information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When Customers request pages CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez's and/or its affiliates' sites, 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.

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 CENTURY 21 Adanalian & Vasquez's and/or its affiliates services that our Customers find valuable.
