1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you?
Premier Abodes collects information in several ways from different parts of the Premier Abodes Web Site. Some personal information is gathered when you register as a buyer, renter or seller. During registration, Premier Abodes asks for your name, email address, mailing address and other information concerning your desired apartment. The more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we are able to customize your experience and help you buy, rent or sell an apartment. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to Premier Abodes – you are given a Premier Abodes User Name and ID and are able to take full advantage of Premier Abodes’s many services.
Premier Abodes may also collect non-personal data from visitors who browse the Premier Abodes Web Site (often referred to as “clickstream” data), such as their IP address, the type of Web browsing software they are using, the Web site they visited before linking to the Premier Abodes Web Site and the Web site they visit after leaving the Premier Abodes Web Site.
2. What cookies are and how they are used?
3. How your information is used?
Premier Abodes primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with a customized experience on the Premier Abodes Web Site and to better assist you in buying, renting, or selling Interior Design. This includes personalization services, interactive communications, online scheduling and many other types of services. In order to provide the best possible services to you, we need to better understand your Interior Design requirements. By knowing a little about you, Premier Abodes is able to deliver more relevant services and content, and hence better Interior Design experience, to you.
You may also receive updates from Premier Abodes via e-mail regarding your transactions with Premier Abodes and promotional material about Premier Abodes’s services and features if you have indicated in your preferences that you would like to receive them. You can change your account preferences at any time. (See “How you can access, update, or delete your information?”)
Premier Abodes does research on its users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us upon registration, from our server log files, third-party analytics tools or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. Premier Abodes may share this aggregated data with advertisers or business partners. (See “With whom does Premier Abodes share my information?” for more information on how Premier Abodes discloses aggregate data.)
4. Who is collecting your information?
Once you register as a buyer, renter or seller, Premier Abodes stores this information on its own servers. In order to provide these Interior Design services to you, it is necessary for us to share your personal information with other Interior Design companies. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not registering to buy or rent an apartment. (See “With whom your information may be shared?” for more information on how Premier Abodes discloses personal information in the course of your use of the Premier Abodes Web Site.)
5. With whom your information may be shared?
The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed.
If you choose to register with Premier Abodes as an apartment buyer or renter, we may forward some of your contact information to a participating Interior Design broker. That broker may in turn contact you to discuss your Interior Design needs in more detail and offer to assist you in your apartment search. If you do not wish to allow your information to be shared, you can choose not to register with Premier Abodes.
Additionally, Premier Abodes may disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, 45% of our users are female) in order to describe our services to current and prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
We use analytics tools and other third-party technologies, such as Google Analytics and to collect non-personal information in the form of various usage and user metrics when you use our site. These tools and technologies collect and analyze certain types of information, including cookies, IP addresses, device and software identifiers, referring and exit URLs, onsite behavior and usage information, feature use metrics and statistics, usage and demographics, and other similar information.
6. What choices are available to you regarding the collection, use, and distribution of your information?
Once you register with Premier Abodes, we usually use email to provide you with updates concerning new apartments meeting your criteria, scheduling changes and other transaction-related information. Premier Abodes may also send you e-mails to let you know about its products and services. At any time you can easily edit your Premier Abodes Web Site Preferences to no longer receive such email. You will need your Premier Abodes ID and Password in order to access your Premier Abodes Web Site Preferences. (See “How you can access, update, or delete your information?” for more information on changing your account preferences.)
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences using most Web browsing software, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those Premier Abodes services that require registration in order to participate.
