When you visit the Site, PORTFOLIO, through its technology providers, for example, www.SiteGround.com (“SiteGround”), collects information about you and your browsing habits. The information we collect depends on the pages of our website you visit and what you do during your visit.
PORTFOLIO may collect information from you automatically when you visit our website, which may include the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer; the type of browser and software operating system you use; web log data, including the date and time you access our website; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked to our site.
Several companies offer tools that allow people to browse the web anonymously. We cannot provide you a personalized experience if you use these tools, because we cannot recognize you and your computer. However, we want to ensure you know of their existence. Because PORTFOLIO does not track your online activities over time and across third party websites in order to provide targeted advertising, PORTFOLIO does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
For most of the browsing services on the Site, PORTFOLIO does not require your personal information. There are portions of the Site where you will be given the option to provide information about you. The information that you may be asked to provide may include your name, email address, telephone number, and address. Depending on your request and other circumstances, other information may also be collected. It is your discretion and determination whether to provide such information. If you use the Site to inquire about a property or contact a real estate agent, broker, or office, the information you have provided may be shared with a PORTFOLIO real estate agent, broker, or brokerage.
Use of the Information
PORTFOLIO uses the information it collects (whether submitted by you or automatically collected) to respond to your requests, to provide you with information that PORTFOLIO thinks may be of interest to you, and to operate its business. PORTFOLIO may also disclose your information to its affiliates, agents, and third-party vendors and service providers working on our behalf. PORTFOLIO has implemented technical measures to protect against the risks of unauthorized access to, erroneous disclosure of, and unlawful interception of Personally Identifiable Information. You should know, however, that PORTFOLIO cannot fully eliminate such risks.
In addition, PORTFOLIO may disclose aggregated data and statistics in order to describe the Site to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, to improve and market its products and services, and for other lawful purposes. Additionally, PORTFOLIO may disclose part or all of a user’s personal information when PORTFOLIO believes, in good faith, that the law requires or compels such disclosure, or when PORTFOLIO has good faith reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to protect PORTFOLIO’s rights or property, the rights of another user, or to prevent harm. Further, PORTFOLIO may disclose information provided by you as part of any merger, sale, acquisition, or other acquisition of some or all of PORTFOLIO or its assets.
PORTFOLIO may choose to buy or sell assets or may transfer the Site, or permit someone else to operate or otherwise take responsibility for the Site or a successor version thereof. PORTFOLIO may share and/or transfer your information in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions. Also, if PORTFOLIO (or its assets) are acquired, or if PORTFOLIO goes out of business, enters bankruptcy, or goes through some other change of control, your personal information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
PORTFOLIO reserves the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that it believes is necessary to comply with the law or a court order or protect the rights, property, or safety of our company, our employees, our users, or others.
If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from PORTFOLIO, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not want to receive legal notices or other communications from PORTFOLIO, it is your responsibility to review and monitor the Site for such notices and communications.
