Scope of this Privacy Statement
This Privacy Statement applies to your use of this Site only.
1. Collection and Use of Your Personal Information
We collect your Personal Information on the Site in order to enhance the services we offer to you. We collect Personal Information from you only when you voluntarily submit it in order to obtain certain services or information, including (A) registrations for special communications, such as saving a search for you and, but only if you request it, sending you new listings that fit the profile of your saved search; (B) requests to find an apartment or commercial space or to find a sales associate; (C) requests to contact us; (D) requests to receive periodic industry updates; (E) requests to email a listing to a friend; and (F) applications for employment.
If you submit a request through this Site to find an apartment or commercial space or to find a sales associate, you will be asked to provide Personal Information and we refer this information to affiliates or sales associates to respond to your request. For example, if you ask to see more listings in a given area, you will be directed to an affiliate or sales associate in that area.
If you contact us, we collect Personal Information, which is retained or referred to an affiliate or sales associate depending on the nature of your inquiry. If you are looking for an apartment, commercial space or a sales associate, your inquiry is referred to an affiliate or sales associate; if your inquiry or complaint requires a response from us, it is referred to the appropriate department for research and a response. The information we collect is not used in any other way.
If you choose to send a listing to a friend, you will be asked to provide the friend’s email address. We do not store this information, and the information is used only to send the one-time referral email.
If you are seeking employment, you will be asked to provide Personal Information about yourself, which will be forwarded to our corporate Human Resources Department.
2. Collection of Non-Personal Information
Even if you do not send us any Personal Information, we collect information about how you use our site (“Non-Personal Information”). This information cannot be used to identify you personally and is explained in more detail below under “Non-Personal Information”.
Like many sites, we obtain Non-Personal Information such as IP (internet protocol) addresses, browser types, the name of your ISP (internet service provider), information about where a user comes from before arriving at our Site, what pages a user visits, the order of those pages, and the amount of time spent on each page. A vendor performs this service for us by sending a cookie to gather this information, compile it, and report to us. We use Non-Personal Information to customize the advertising and content you see, improve our services, conduct research, and provide anonymous aggregated reporting for internal audits.
3. Use of Information
We use the Personal Information and the Non-Personal Information we collect on the Site (A) to provide you with the services that you ask to receive through the Site, including saving searches and, if you request it, sending you updates about those searches, (B) to receive, if you choose, to receive periodic industry updates, (C) to answer your questions or complaints, (D) to refer you to affiliates and sales associates about finding an apartment or commercial space or to locate a sales associate; (E) to refer a listing to a friend, and (F) for analytical purposes to help us improve the Site and for our business generally.

(a) Third party vendors we engage to provide services on our behalf, such as hosting, web-site development, and support, have access to Personal Information, but they have agreed not to disclose the Personal Information or to use it for any purpose other than providing the requested services.
(b) There may arise special circumstances where it is necessary for us to disclose and use Personal Information and Non-Personal Information, such as: to enforce this Privacy Statement or any other part of our Terms & Conditions; to protect our property or rights; to protect the safety of anyone; to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or improper activities; to carry out a sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, or any similar transaction; or for other reasons we determine in good faith are necessary, appropriate, or required by law, such as when we respond to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal or administrative process.
Our hosting service maintains its systems in accordance with reasonable industry standards to reasonably secure the information of its customers. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. “Perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, and you use the Site at your own risk.
