Windermere Real Estate Services Company
Windermere Real Estate Services Company (“Windermere,” “we,” “us,” and “our”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through compliance with this Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”). This Privacy Notice describes the types of Information we may collect from you when you visit the website at www.windermere.com (the “Site”), and that you may provide in electronic messages between you and the Site. It also describes our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that Information. This Privacy Notice does not apply to Information collected by us offline, through any other means or by any third party. For agents utilizing MoxiWorks products and services, you can find MoxiWorks’ privacy statement here.
Please read this Privacy Notice carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your Information and how we will handle it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, do not use the Site. By accessing or using the Site, you agree to this Privacy Notice.
Windermere may change this Privacy Notice at any time, at its discretion. Your continued use of the Site after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Privacy Notice periodically for updates.
Windermere may collect two types of information from you when you visit the Site: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information (collectively “Information”).
We collect Information:
Information You Provide Directly to Windermere. The Information that you provide us directly through our Site may include:
Information Automatically Collected from You. The Information that Windermere may automatically collect and store about you when you visit the Site may include:
Cookies are small text files that a web server (such as Windermere‘s or its chosen web hosting company server) places on a user's computer. When accessing a cookie, Windermere’s server reads a number associated with a browser, but is unable to determine any data about a user. With that number, our web server can tailor its content to the needs of the specific browser, and we can optimize the Site for your use.
Web Beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of web or mobile application users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive or your smartphone, web beacons are small graphics that are embedded invisibly on, for example, web pages or in HTML-based emails. Our third party analytics providers may place web beacons on the Site that track what other websites you visit (both before and after visiting the Site). Our third party analytics providers use information obtained from web beacons to help us improve our business and services. We do not control the use of web beacons by third parties.
Google Analytics Advertising Features. We also may have the following Google Analytics Advertising Features Implemented: Demographics and Interest reporting, Remarketing, GDN Impression Reporting and Double Click Campaign Manager. These features collect data using Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers. Windermere and third-party vendors use these first-party cookies to access the success of online marketing campaigns, inform future campaigns and improve usability on the Site. To learn how to opt-out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features we use, please see Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We use Information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any Personal Information, for the following purposes:
Site statistics are compiled into traffic reports, which help Windermere understand, anticipate, and respond to user needs. If we learn, for example, of heightened interest in certain aspects of Windermere’s projects, we are likely to highlight that information on the Site home page. This Information helps us create a better overall experience for Site users.
Windermere will retain your Information as long as Windermere believes it is appropriate for the purposes of this Privacy Notice.
We have implemented measures designed to protect your Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Unfortunately, the internet is not completely secure. Although we are working to protect your Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Information either in transmission or when stored. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.
We may use and disclose Non-Personal Information about our users without restriction. We may disclose Personal Information that we collect or you provide as described in this Privacy Notice:
Except as described above, Windermere does not sell any of your information.
We use third parties to host the Site, design and operate the Site features, and perform administrative, analytics, and communications. Services these third parties provide include enabling Windermere to send you email newsletters and providing information to Windermere about the use of the Site and viewing of our content. We may disclose your Information to these companies so they can carry out these services.
Windermere complies with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and related regulations. The Site is not directed at children, and Windermere does not knowingly collect any Information from children under 13 years of age. If Windermere learns that a child under 13 years of age has provided Information, Windermere will delete this Information from our databases. If you are under 13, do not use this Site or provide any Information about yourself to Windermere, including your name, address, telephone number or email address. If you become aware that Information of a child under 13 years of age has been provided, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites or services linked to or from the Site, including the information or content contained therein. Our Privacy Notice does not apply to third party websites or services.
Some browsers incorporate a "Do Not Track" (“DNT”) feature that, when turned on, signals to websites and online services that you do not want to be tracked. At this time, the Site does not respond to DNT signals.
If you choose not to provide Information, you may be unable to access or use all portions of the website. We send promotional and marketing communications only with your consent. If you no longer wish to receive these or other communications, you can stop these communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe link” provided in such communications.
