Privacy Policy

The use of a NuHabitat Account by an Account holder (collectively referred to as “You”, “Your”, “Yourself”, “I”, or “Me”) is subject to the following Privacy Policy that governs the use of personally identifiable information about You that is gathered by NuHabitat, LLC (“NuHabitat”), or by the licensed real estate agent (“Agent”) with whom you collaborate through Your Account, and the broker with which the Agent is affiliated (“Broker”) (collectively referred to herein as “We”, “Our”, or “Us”.). NuHabitat provides the web based computer application through which the content and functionality available on to You at Your NuHabitat Account is delivered, and which enables You to collaborate with the Agent and Broker in Your effort consummate a real estate transaction on terms acceptable to You. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to Us. We want to make Your use of Your NuHabitat Account or the NuHabitat Site, as defined below, both satisfying and safe.

Because We gather certain types of information about NuHabitat Account holders, You should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This Privacy Policy discloses what information We gather and how We use it.

Information Collected and Tracked

In general, when You visit the NuHabitat website at www.NuHabitat.com (the “NuHabitat Site”), You remain anonymous until such time as You become a registered user by creating Your NuHabitat Account.

Optional Voluntary Information

There are occasions where We ask You to voluntarily submit information about Yourself, such as Your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and property search criteria. For example, We request identifying information about You when You register as a NuHabitat Account holder, and We may do so when You use or manage Your NuHabitat Account to enable Us to better understand Your needs, adjust Your NuHabitat Account to Your personal preferences, enhance Your ability to search properties on Your NuHabitat Account, enable You to participate in any message boards, and send You e-mail and postal mail newsletters and announcements, and for other similar business purposes. We give You the opportunity, however, to elect not to receive further materials from Us. We also will share Your personal information and information about Your use of Your NuHabitat Account with the Agent or Broker with whom You are collaborating through Your NuHabitat Account.

Usage Tracking

We collect tracking information and monitor traffic patterns throughout the NuHabitat Site; however, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users unless You have registered as a NuHabitat Account holder. We do break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and internet protocol address by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every Internet user’s browser). This information allows Us to better tailor Our content to Our Account holders’ needs and to help Our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of Our Account holders and other users of the NuHabitat Site.

Cookies

We, or third party service providers engaged by Us, may place text files called “cookies” in the browser files of Your computer to track usage of the NuHabitat Site, your NuHabitat Account, or web pages within those sites. The cookies themselves do not contain personal information about You, although they will enable Us to relate Your use of the NuHabitat Site or Your NuHabitat Account to information that You have specifically and knowingly provided to Us. The only personal information cookies can contain is information You supply yourself. Cookies cannot read data on Your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. We use cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). We may also use cookies when You register for Your NuHabitat Account. In these situations, a cookie will store useful information that enables the NuHabitat Site or Your NuHabitat Account to remember You when You return to Your NuHabitat Account.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in Your browser. If You have set Your browser to warn You before accepting cookies, You will receive the warning message with each cookie. Please refer to Your browser instructions for information regarding erasing, blocking, and receiving warnings for cookies. You should understand, however, that if You prevent Us from placing cookies on Your computer, Your use of the Your NuHabitat Account may be less efficient.

Other Data Collection

We may collect data from or about You in other ways not specifically described in this policy. For example, You might contact Us with a question. We maintain such data like other business records. All opinions, ideas, suggestions, and other feedback submitted through Your NuHabitat Account or the NuHabitat Site may be used by Us, without any restriction and free of charge, including Your name as the source of such content, and nothing contained in this policy shall limit or otherwise affect NuHabitat’s rights in this regard.

We may also collect non-personally identifiable information such as the type of internet browser or the type of computer operating system You are using, and the domain name of the website from which You linked into Your NuHabitat Account, the NuHabitat Site, or an advertisement appearing on such sites.

Please note that we will fully cooperate with any court order or other legal process and will provide Your personal information to the extent required in any legal proceeding.

Use of Information and Protection of your Privacy

As mentioned above, We gather and use personal information about You when You register as a NuHabitat Account holder and We track Your usage and management of Your NuHabitat Account and use of the NuHabitat Site, to better understand Your needs, adjust Your NuHabitat Account to Your personal preferences, enable You to search properties on Your NuHabitat Account, enable You to participate in any message boards, and send You e-mail and postal mail newsletters and announcements, and for other similar business purposes. We also permit the Agent or Broker with whom You may be collaborating through Your NuHabitat Account to view this information to enable the Agent or Broker to better serve Your real estate needs and expectations. We do not in the regular course of Our business disclose or sell mailing lists containing personally identifiable information about You to any outside parties. Also, We will not share Your personal information with any outside parties without Your permission, unless such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety or property of Our users, employees, independent contractors or the public.

We may use third party contractors who can access Our databases for the purpose of conducting repairs or upgrades to Our computer system. We may also use third party service providers and give access to Your personal information as part of the services they provide to Us. We hold all such third parties to the same privacy standards to which We hold Ourselves. We require these third parties to use and disclose Your personal information only as necessary to perform their services for Us.

Children

Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) years. If We discover that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has provided Us with any personally identifiable information, We will delete that information from Our systems.

Security

We operate secure data networks protected by industry standard security protocols, such as (if and where appropriate) firewalls, encryption, and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by Our users.

Unsubscribe / Opt-Out Policy

You may unsubscribe or opt-out of receiving electronic correspondence from Us by either logging into Your NuHabitat Account to modify your preferences or following any instructions in such electronic correspondence on how to unsubscribe or opt-out from any further electronic communications from Us. The foregoing does NOT opt You out of receiving e-mail correspondence about Your NuHabitat Account, or prevent Us from enabling the Agent or Broker with whom You may be collaborating through Your NuHabitat Account to view Your activity within Your Account.

Links

Your NuHabitat Account or the NuHabitat Site may contain links to other websites that are not under our control. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of those sites, and We provide the links solely for the convenience and information of Our users and Account holders.

Your Consent

By using Your NuHabitat Account or the NuHabitat Website, You consent to the collection and use by Us of the information about You in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. If We decide to change our Privacy Policy, We will post those changes on this page so You are always aware of what information We collect, how We use it, and under what circumstances We disclose it.
