By using any of Smart Estates , or its clients’ sites, you will be providing Smart Estates with certain limited anonymous information, based on your activities. This information cannot be traced back to you, or matched up to personally identifying information in any way – it is completely anonymous, and will only be used in aggregate form with the information collected from other site visitors. Should you choose to correspond with, or participate in any of Smart Estates services or products, however, you will be asked to provide personally identifiable information, in order that we may respond, or do business with you. Please see below for more details on the kinds of anonymous and identifiable information Smart Estates collects.
When a user visits Smart Estates or one of its search sites, they leave a “trail” of electronic information, which is collected and stored on our servers. This information, often referred to as traffic, or click-stream data is not personally identifiable nor is it possible to combine with any kind of identifiable information we may collect from you by other means (see Personally Identifiable Information, below). Rather, click-stream data consists of very limited and specific information about your computer, your browser, and its activities. For example: your computer’s IP address, its operating system, the type and version of your browser, the date and time, the length of time spent on each page, search terms, results or advertisements clicked upon, and referral data.
This anonymous information is used to monitor our traffic and servers, as well as to screen for fraudulent behavior or abnormalities. It is also used to compile statistics and perform research by analyzing it in aggregate form, which in turn helps us to improve our services and offerings to both users of our sites and services.
Personally Identifiable Information
In certain limited circumstances, Smart Estates may gain access to your personally identifiable information. This information is made available to Smart Estates voluntarily, when a user or potential client specifically and knowingly provides it to us, in order to correspond with us, or to receive a service they’ve requested.
Correspondence: When a site user or potential client gives comments, questions, information requests, or feedback to Smart Estates by phone, mail, or email (either directly or through one of our online forms) and includes an email address and/or contact information, Smart Estates will use this information in order to respond. The contact information provided, however, is not stored in any kind of database. It is only maintained as a record of past correspondence, either in the responders’ files or sent items.
