At New Homes, your privacy is very important to us. We want you to understand what types of information we collect and what may happen to that information.
Website Visitors: Like most website operators, New Homes collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, New Homes may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information: Certain visitors to New Homes’ website choose to interact in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that New Homes gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our email newsletter to provide a name and email address. Those who wish to receive a free magazine subscription are asked to provide a mailing address and answer a few questions about themselves and their home search. Visitors who request additional information about communities are also required to provide contact information. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s request. New Homes does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Aggregated Statistics: New Homes may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, New Homes may monitor the most popular pages on the site and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, New Homes does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information: New Homes discloses personally-identifying information only to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on New Homes’ behalf or provide services available at New Homes’ website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using New Homes’ website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, New Homes discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when New Homes believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of New Homes, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of the New Homes website and have supplied your email address, New Homes may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with New Homes and our products. New Homes takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Business Transfers: If New Homes, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that New Homes goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of New Homes may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
