Your Privacy Rights

Effective Date: July 1, 2015

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information gathered by Island Advantage Realty, LLC ("IAR", "us" or "we") in the process of providing this website, services, information, tools, functionality, updates and similar materials (collectively, the "Service"), how we use it, with whom the information may be shared, what choices are available to you regarding collection, use and distribution of information and our efforts to protect the information you provide to us through the Service. By using the Service, you hereby consent to allow us to process information in accordance with this Policy. Please also refer to our Terms of Use, which are incorporated as if fully recited herein.

This policy is subject to change. If our information retention or usage practices change, we will let you know by posting the Privacy Policy changes on the Service and/or otherwise making you aware of the changes. Please refer to the "Effective Date" above to see when this Policy was last updated.

Regardless of where our servers are located, your personal data may be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. BY VISITING THE WEBSITE AND USING THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY US THROUGH VOLUNTARY SUBMISSIONS, AND THAT U.S. LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.

Information Collected
We collect two types of information about and from persons who use the Service: voluntarily provided personal information and automatically collected information.

Personal Information Collected
IAR collects certain Personal Information about you or about those you identify, which may be supplied when you interact with the Service, complete a survey, when you request services or otherwise when you submit such information. The information collected may include one or more of the following:

  • Name;
  • Address;
  • Phone number;
  • Email

Non-Personal Information
Non-Personal Information is non-personally identifiable or anonymous information about you or about those you identify, including but not limited to age, gender, links, referring website, materials posted, enrolment history, the type of device you used and its operating system, the pages accessed most frequently, how pages are used, applications downloaded, search terms entered, and similar non-personal data.

Automatically Tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of automatically collecting information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your device whenever you surf the internet. Further, the Service may utilize web beacons, pixel tags, cookies (including third-party cookies), embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools.

Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device, that will interfere with your use of the Service.

Use of Information

Internal Use of Information by IAC
We accept and gather information in an effort to provide the Service to you and those receiving the Services. We may also use this information to help us develop and improve our Service, test business plans, conduct research, fulfill your requests, send materials to you, inform you about our offers, tailor our Service to meet the interests of our users, and for other purposes permitted by law.

Sharing Collected Information

We may share personal and non-personal information with our business associates, consultants, service providers, advisors and affiliates in order for them to provide services to us, to you, and to enable us to provide the Service. For example, our host and internet service provider may have access to this information to support our website, and a representative may call, text or e-mail you, if you have indicated an interest in one or more properties.

We may disclose aggregate information in connection with marketing and publicity relating to the Service.

We may further disclose information we collect with business associates for their own business purposes, in which such information and use will be governed by their own privacy policies.

Our Service may use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, to help us analyze how users use the Service. You may be able to opt-out of Google's collection. Please visit Google's Ads Preferences Manager or the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on for more information.

Further, we may disclose collected information to the extent we believe it necessary to comply with the law, such as in response to a subpoena or court order, to defend a legal claim or otherwise as permitted by applicable law. Additionally, we may transfer your information to successor in interest, which may include but may not be limited to a third-party in the event of an acquisition, sale, merger or bankruptcy.

Our Service may contain links to other websites or to third-party applications, such as mortgage calculators. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of such other sites. When you leave our Service to visit another website or application, please read the privacy statements of websites that may collect personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by IAR through the Service and in its general business activities.

We employ procedural and technical safeguards to secure personal information against loss, theft, alteration, and unauthorized access, use and disclosure. We also employ security procedures to protect information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company.

Regardless of the precautions taken by IAR, no transmission of data over the Internet is completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.

E-Mail and Electronic Newsletters
We may offer electronic newsletters and e-mails concerning available properties, as well as new products and services, or may provide other marketing materials as a service to our users. Users may receive newsletters and e-mails concerning promotions and marketing of ours or of our business partners, after registering with the Service or after engaging with IAR in person or through our agents.

If you have received a message from IAR, and you no longer wish to receive such materials, you may opt-out by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each electronic newsletter and e-mail.

Please note that you may be required to separately opt out of any e-mails sent by our business associates.

Children and Privacy
We do not knowingly permit users to register for our Service if they are under 18 years old, and therefore do not request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18.

If we become aware that a customer is under the age of 13 and has registered without prior verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her personally identifiable registration information from our files. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 13 who has provided personally identifiable information to us without your approval, please inform us by contacting us at the e-mail address below and we will remove such information from our database.

Do Not Track
At present, the Service does not specifically respond to automated browser do-not-track signals.

California Privacy Rights
California law allows California residents to request information regarding our disclosures in the prior calendar year, if any, of their personally identifiable information to third parties. To make such a request, please contact us at privacy@islandadvantage.com with "Request for Privacy Information" in the subject line. Please include enough detail for us to locate your file; at a minimum, your name, email, and username, if any. We will attempt to provide you with the requested information within thirty (30) days of receipt. We reserve our right not to respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year, or requests submitted to an address other than the one posted in this notice. Please note that this law does not cover all information sharing. Our disclosure only includes information covered by the law.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding our Privacy Policy, please contact us via e-mail at privacy@iarny.com.
