This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in U.S. Privacy Law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

How Do We Use Your Information?

We may use the information we collect when you register, communicate with us, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:

  • To process your transactions
  • To improve our website in order to better serve you
  • To allow us to better service you in responding to your service requests
  • To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature
  • To send periodic emails regarding your order or other products and services
  • To personalize your experience with the website & our services

We may, for example, contact you to offer assistance, provide information or otherwise help with your real estate home search or property sale. We may also provide you with enhanced services such as an e-newsletter or "listing alerts" when homes that match your general search criteria become available on the market.

Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting vendors and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.

Cookies & Other Tracking Technologies

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on visitor's device to help us improve a user's access to a website and identify repeat visitors. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of users to enhance the website experience. Cookies are also used to collect general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personal information.

Third Party Cookies

The use of cookies by outside companies is not covered by our privacy statement. We do not have access or control over these cookies.

Web Beacons

Our Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used in conjunction with cookies to compile aggregated statistics in an effort to analyze how this website is used. These web beacons may also be used in emails to determine which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns, and ultimately to better serve customers & clients.

Links to Other Web Sites

Our site includes links to other web sites whose Privacy Policies may differ from those of RealFX, Inc, or sites which may not publish a Privacy Policy. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy statements and/or business practices. We encourage all website visitors to carefully read the privacy statement of any web site they visit.

Data Retention

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services.

We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under 13.

CAN-SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. We collect your email address in order to send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions, and to market to our mailing list and/or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.

To be in accordance with the CANSPAM Act we agree to the following:

  • To not use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
  • Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, please follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and we will promptly remove you from correspondence.
