  1. Definition of Confidential Information.

1.1       “Confidential Information” includes all oral and written information, in tangible or intangible form, that the Disclosing Party or any of its directors, officers, employees, or representatives provides, directly or indirectly, to the Receiving Party or any of its directors, officers, employees, or representatives in connection with evaluation of the Potential Transaction including, without limitation, financial data, costs, margins, software, computer programming, mailing or other marketing lists, customer lists, sources of supply, salaries and other information concerning employees, any advertising, promotion, product or program concepts, plans or proposals, or any other information that is of a confidential, proprietary, or non-public nature.  Confidential Information includes the fact that the Receiving Party has received the Confidential Information, the fact that discussions are taking place in connection with the Potential Transaction, and the status of those discussions.

1.2       Confidential Information does not include information that:

(a)        was already known by the Receiving Party or any of its directors, officers, employees, affiliates, or representatives without any obligation of confidentiality before the Disclosing Party disclosed it to the Receiving Party;

(b)        is in the public domain or later enters the public domain through no wrongful act or omission of the Receiving Party;

(c)        is disclosed to the Receiving Party or to any of its directors, officers, employees, affiliates, or representatives by a third party having, to the best of the knowledge of the Receiving Party after inquiry, the right to disclose the information without any obligation of confidentiality;

(d)        is or may be developed independently by the Receiving Party without reference to any Confidential Information; or

(e)        is ascertainable from a visual inspection of the Disclosing Party’s products, services, or advertising or promotional material.

  1. Obligations of Receiving Party. The Receiving Party must:

2.1       Not, without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party, discuss or disclose or permit the discussion or disclosure of the Confidential Information to anyone other than the Receiving Party’s directors, officers, employees, affiliates, investors, lenders, accountants, contractors, consultants, or representatives that have a legitimate need to know Confidential Information in connection with the evaluation of the Potential Transaction;

Regenerative Home that Enhances Your Well-Being {Regenerative Home that Enhances Your Well-Being} – English

Regenerative Home that Enhances Your Well-Being – English

Beyond Green Design, a regenerative home that enhances your well-being.

Homes have been designated as “Green” for years, the aim of green design is sustainability, Vera Iconica Architecture, an architectural firm in Jackson, Wyoming specializing in wellness architecture, challenges us to think beyond sustainability into the world of regeneration. Posing the question “do we really want to sustain the current condition”? Suggesting that instead we think bigger and look to create design standards that give back, regenerative design does just that. Regenerative buildings live in harmony with the local ecology and can establish symbiotic relationships that allow local flora and fauna – including humans – to flourish.

It is already well documented that our environment impacts our physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and financial health, even how well we age. Environmental psychologists, neuroscientists and clinical doctors are beginning to study just how big that impact is. Additionally, products marketed as green or environmentally friendly are not always so. Product manufacturers are quick to tout the benefits of a single element of their product without appreciation for how the remaining elements interact with our environment, sometimes doing more harm than good to our health and planet.

The architecture and real estate communities can help, with education and the opening of the western mindsets to ancient wisdom and knowledge from around the globe. All of this to enrich and regenerate our environment while contributing to the enhanced well-being of those who currently share our environment and future generations.

Here are 3 small shifts you can make today to move toward well-ism in your personal environment:

1. Sync your natural Circadian Rhythms to the rhythms of the environment, this helps to balances your hormones for optimal health . Create connection to the natural color and intensity shifts of daylight, by waking up and preparing for sleep away from the blue screens of digital devices. Integrate candlelight in your morning and evening rituals when additional light is needed.

2. Nourish your space, so it can nourish you and don’t be the only thing living in it. Bring your space to life with plants, crystals, trickling water, and essential oils. These seemingly small additions to your space can shift your mood, your ability to respond to stress, and your cognitive performance, not to mention your indoor air quality.

3. Reduce your exposure to toxins, especially unknown toxins. Unless you are cleaning with vinegar and essential oils, you are inadvertently putting chemicals into your body and the bodies of those around you. Airborne cleaning products that spray on to surfaces or aerosol products that mask smells are proliferating the air with harmful chemicals that are absorbed through your lungs, skin, and eyes. Cosmetic products, lotions, and perfumes are no different. A small amount of research and education can save your body the stress of constantly detoxifying itself and use those energy resources for your vitality and well-being.

Staying Healthy on the Trails {Staying Healthy on the Trails} – English

Hitting the trails is a must during the beautiful Summer months. And these tips from our Chief Wellness Officer will help keep you healthy, happy, and hydrated when you’re on the trails.

Hydration – This should be your first priority, particularly if you aren’t used to exercising at higher elevations. General recommendations for water are 1 liter per hour of exercise. Instead of stopping for large gulps of water take small sips throughout the hour. And don’t forget, water can feel heavy when you carry it for long periods of time – 1 liter of water weighs almost 2 pounds.

If you don’t want to carry your water you have another option; carry a filter system such as Lifestraw or a water sterilizing pen like SteriPEN so you can drink water straight from the source. Generally, natural spring water fresh from a spring doesn’t need filtration. But filters do a great job at removing larger particles and are usually effective enough for drinking from U.S. water sources. On the other hand, a sterilizing pen can kill viruses and/ or bacteria that can’t be caught by a filter. Some people like to have both, and both are pretty lightweight.

Chemical purification tabs are an alternative to carrying equipment. Most hikers prefer Chlorine Dioxide Tablets. Plan ahead as these tablets can take between 30 minutes and 4 hours to properly purify the water.

Nutritional Support – With hydration also comes electrolyte and mineral loss. For shorter 1/2 day hikes proper mineral balance can be achieved by keeping water intake high and with some smart snack choices. Eating foods that are high in potassium and contain some salt, fat, and even a little natural sugar are great. Make your own trail mix with salted mixed nuts, fresh dates, and dried (unsweetened) coconut can for the perfect nutritious snack. If you don’t have access to any of the above supplementing with electrolyte drinks or tabs is always an option.

Nutritional bars are another great choice, but finding the right one is key. How can you tell what nutrition bar is going to be best for you? Make sure that the sugar grams are lower than protein grams, there are no added sugars or sweeteners, carbohydrates are between 25 to 45 grams per serving, and there are 10 to 25 grams of protein. For shorter hikes, protein can remain higher and carbohydrates lower, for longer hikes over 90 minutes increase carbohydrate intake and decrease protein.

Conventional wisdom says to load up on carbohydrates before a workout but a meal higher in fat will actually give you better-sustained energy. Carbohydrates can then be used for immediate energy as needed. Be sure to enjoy a healthy protein rich meal after your hike to refuel.

Bear spray, a hat, proper shoes, and sunscreen are always essential. For sunscreen, Rathna Raju, MD of Reincarnation Medical Spa recommends Elta MD sunscreen for face & body. Apply even when it feels like the sun is not out, those rays in Jackson are powerful!

As with any successful outcome, it all starts with proper planning. Knowing how many hours you’ll be active, how strenuous your activity will be, and any water sources that you’ll be near to hydrate if you choose not to carry your own water.

Shedding Light on Home Lighting and Health {Shedding Light on Home Lighting and Health} – English

The lights in your home can have a huge impact on your health!

Corey Hart was on to something with his 1983 hit “Sunglasses at night”! Little did he know biohackers (people who study biology hacks for longevity and optimal health) across the globe would be wearing orange colored glasses at night. These glasses are designed to block harmful blue light that disrupts circadian rhythm and promotes ill-health when exposure is artificial and mistimed.

Before 1879, when Thomas Edison patented the electric lightbulb, people relied on candles, lanterns and fires for sources of light after the sunset. Just 3 decades ago, researchers at Harvard discovered that light in fact governs our interval clock, known as circadian rhythm. Research on light, particularly blue light has been on the rise, especially since the introduction of computers and personal electronic devices. So much so that the 2017 Nobel Prize in “Physiology or Medicine” was awarded for such research.

Here’s what we know:

  • Exposure to blue light before bedtime is linked to a 99% of melatonin suppression and up to 90 minutes of decreased duration of melatonin.
  • Melatonin is essential for restful sleep, brain health, gut health, and fertility. it is also a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
  • Melatonin production is suppressed when cortisol levels are high, particularly due to artificial lighting, stress, and late night meals or snacking, particularly high carbohydrate or sugary snacks.
  • Heart attack, asthma, arthritis, depression, diabetes & obesity instances are higher in those sleeping less than 7 hours per night.

Here’s what you can do about it:

  • Swap out LEDs for incandescent or low-voltage incandescent halogen lights or Consider a Smart Home system such as Nest or Alexa to program lighting shifts from day to night.
  • Get exposure to direct sunlight early in the morning, at times when natural sun is not available consider an indoor wide spectrum white light lamp to simulate sunlight in the morning.
  • Limit exposure to blue light after sunset, adjust computer, phone and other personal electronics to limit blue light or install apps or software such as f.lux or use apple’s “Night Shift” settings.
  • Use candle light or orange tinted lights at night, especially in bedrooms.
  • Use orange tinted, blue light blocking glasses in the evenings where blue light exists (computer/phone use).

  3. To ensure that confidential information retains its character, and to ensure that confidential information is not used improperly or disclosed to any unauthorized person or entity, the parties enter into this Agreement.

AGREEMENT

  1. Definition of Confidential Information.

1.1       “Confidential Information” includes all oral and written information, in tangible or intangible form, that the Disclosing Party or any of its directors, officers, employees, or representatives provides, directly or indirectly, to the Receiving Party or any of its directors, officers, employees, or representatives in connection with evaluation of the Potential Transaction including, without limitation, financial data, costs, margins, software, computer programming, mailing or other marketing lists, customer lists, sources of supply, salaries and other information concerning employees, any advertising, promotion, product or program concepts, plans or proposals, or any other information that is of a confidential, proprietary, or non-public nature.  Confidential Information includes the fact that the Receiving Party has received the Confidential Information, the fact that discussions are taking place in connection with the Potential Transaction, and the status of those discussions.

1.2       Confidential Information does not include information that:

(a)        was already known by the Receiving Party or any of its directors, officers, employees, affiliates, or representatives without any obligation of confidentiality before the Disclosing Party disclosed it to the Receiving Party;

(b)        is in the public domain or later enters the public domain through no wrongful act or omission of the Receiving Party;

(c)        is disclosed to the Receiving Party or to any of its directors, officers, employees, affiliates, or representatives by a third party having, to the best of the knowledge of the Receiving Party after inquiry, the right to disclose the information without any obligation of confidentiality;

(d)        is or may be developed independently by the Receiving Party without reference to any Confidential Information; or

(e)        is ascertainable from a visual inspection of the Disclosing Party’s products, services, or advertising or promotional material.

  1. Obligations of Receiving Party. The Receiving Party must:

2.1       Not, without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party, discuss or disclose or permit the discussion or disclosure of the Confidential Information to anyone other than the Receiving Party’s directors, officers, employees, affiliates, investors, lenders, accountants, contractors, consultants, or representatives that have a legitimate need to know Confidential Information in connection with the evaluation of the Potential Transaction;

2.2       Not, without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party, copy any Confidential Information for any purpose other than in connection with the evaluation of the Potential Transaction or as otherwise permitted under this Agreement;

2.3       Not, without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party, use any Confidential Information for any purpose other than in connection with the evaluation of the Potential Transaction or as otherwise permitted under this Agreement;

2.4       Promptly notify the Disclosing Party in writing of any impermissible disclosure or use of Confidential Information under this Agreement; and

2.5       Not, without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party, contact or initiate contact at any time for any purpose relating to the Potential Transaction, either directly or indirectly, any officers, directors, shareholders, consultants, attorneys, employees, agents or other affiliates of the Disclosing Party.  The Receiving Party further agrees not to undertake any transaction or a series of transactions of any kind relating to the Potential Transaction, or the assets associated therewith, without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party.

    1. Subpoena. If the Receiving Party is required by any court of competent jurisdiction, by subpoena or court order, to disclose any Confidential Information, the Receiving Party must provide the Disclosing Party with prompt written notice of the requirement so that the Disclosing Party has an opportunity to seek an appropriate protective order.  If the Disclosing Party does not seek or is unable to obtain a protective order and the Receiving Party is compelled to disclose Confidential Information, disclosure will not constitute a violation of this Agreement.
    2. Term of Agreement. This Agreement is effective as of the Effective Date and will remain in effect until the earliest of the following events (each, a “termination”):

4.1       Termination of all discussions between the parties in connection with the Potential Transaction, including Receiving Party’s satisfaction of its obligations under Section 6 hereof; or

4.2       Written notice by one party to all other parties that the notifying party considers all discussions between the parties in connection with the Potential Transaction to have terminated, including Receiving Party’s satisfaction of its obligations under Section 6 hereof.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party’s obligations of confidentiality set forth in this Agreement, including but not limited to the provisions of Section 2.5 hereof, will survive termination for a period equal to two (2) years from the date hereof.

  1. No Transfer of Ownership; No License. All Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement is and will remain the property of the Disclosing Party.  No licenses or rights under any patent, copyright, trademark, service mark, or trade secret are granted or are to be implied by this Agreement.  Subject to the provisions and obligations of this Agreement, the Receiving Party Proprietary Information (as hereinafter defined) shall be the sole and exclusive property of Receiving Party.
  2. Return or Destruction of Confidential Information. Upon written demand by the Disclosing Party or upon the termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party must destroy or return all Confidential Information to the Disclosing Party within 5 business days, provided, however, that any and all separate internal analyses, compilations or similar proprietary information, recommendations or conclusions prepared by Receiving Party or its representatives (the “Receiving Party Proprietary Information”) shall be subject to destruction only and shall not be turned over to Disclosing Party.  Unless otherwise agreed to in advance by the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party may not retain any archival copies of any Confidential Information.  This Agreement will survive the return of Confidential Information to the Disclosing Party.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Receiving Party and its representatives shall be entitled to retain (x) any Confidential Information that may be required for the purposes of defending or maintaining any pending or threatened litigation (including any administrative proceeding) relating to this Agreement or the Potential Transaction, (y) copies of electronic data containing Confidential Information pursuant to Receiving Party and its representatives’ respective automatic backup and storage systems for electronic data or the ordinary operation of electronic devices, and (z) copies of Confidential Information required in order to comply with any legal, regulatory or internal compliance, risk management or document retention requirements.

In addition to the foregoing, it is acknowledged and agreed that Receiving Party will be sharing certain data and information with Disclosing Party during the course of their ongoing business relationship, which information may include confidential client lists and similar proprietary data of Receiving Party (such information, the “Receiving Party Client Information”).  Upon termination of this Agreement, Disclosing Party must destroy or return all Receiving Party Client Information to the Receiving Party within 5 business days, provided, however, that any and all separate internal analyses, compilations or similar proprietary information, recommendations or conclusions prepared by Disclosing Party or its representatives (the “Disclosing Party Proprietary Information”) shall be subject to destruction only and shall not be turned over to Receiving Party. Unless otherwise agreed to in advance by the Receiving Party, the Disclosing Party may not retain any archival copies of any Receiving Party Client Information.  This Agreement will survive the return of Receiving Party Client Information to the Receiving Party.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Disclosing Party and its representatives shall be entitled to retain (x) any Receiving Party Client Information that may be required for the purposes of defending or maintaining any pending or threatened litigation (including any administrative proceeding) relating to this Agreement or the Potential Transaction, (y) copies of electronic data containing Receiving Party Client Information pursuant to Disclosing Party and its representatives’ respective automatic backup and storage systems for electronic data or the ordinary operation of electronic devices, and (z) copies of Receiving Party Client Information required in order to comply with any legal, regulatory or internal compliance, risk management or document retention requirements.  In addition to the foregoing, and not in limitation thereof, following termination of this Agreement, Disclosing Party shall be entitled to retain and continue to utilize any and all anonymized data associated with, or derived from, the Receiving Party Client Information (the “Anonymized Data”), none of which will include or reflect client information or similar identifying information for any of the individual clients of Receiving Party.  The Anonymized Data may be used by Disclosing Party in the creation, modification and running of algorithms, proprietary tags and similar software applications associated with the Potential Transaction and the ongoing operation of the businesses associated therewith, including following termination of this Agreement.

  1. Warranties. The Disclosing Party warrants that it has the right to disclose Confidential Information to the Receiving Party under the terms of this Agreement and that the disclosure does not violate any obligations to any third party.  ALL OTHER WARRANTIES ARE DISCLAIMED, INCLUDING THAT ANY CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR MERCHANTABLE.  Without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, the Disclosing Party does not make any representation about the accuracy or completeness of any Confidential Information that may be provided to the Receiving Party.  This paragraph will not supersede the terms and conditions of a definitive transaction document entered into by and between the parties with respect to the Potential Transaction.
  2. Equitable Relief. The Receiving Party acknowledges and agrees that all Confidential Information has been developed by the Disclosing Party with substantial effort and at substantial cost; that a breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement may cause the Disclosing Party irreparable injury for which no adequate remedy at law exists; that Disclosing Party will have the right, in addition to any other rights it may have (and, by executing this Agreement, the Receiving Party hereby consents) to the entry in any court having jurisdiction, of a temporary or permanent restraining order or injunction restraining or enjoining the Receiving Party from any violation of this Agreement; and to waive any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy.
  3. General.

9.1     Merger.  This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, writings, statements, and understandings between the parties with respect to the subject matter.

9.2     Assignment; Modification; Successors.  Except as hereinafter provided, this Agreement may not be assigned by any party without the prior written consent of all parties and may not be modified by any party except by a written agreement signed by all parties.  Subject to the provisions of this Section 11.2, this Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of any successors and assigns.

9.3     Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement is deemed void or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be stricken from this Agreement without affecting the remaining provisions.

INTRODUCTION

REALM, LLC (“REALM” or “we”) is a full service residential real estate brokerage firm.  We provide various information and brokerage and other services relating to the offering, search and purchase and sale of residential properties directly and in coordination with our network of independent residential real estate agents operating within our brokerage (“Agents”).

This GDPR Privacy Notice (this “Notice”) provides information about how we collect, use, and share your personal information as required by the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) including advising you of certain rights and choices you have with respect to our handling of that information.   This includes through websites we operate that link to this Notice, in our email, phone and other communications with you, and in providing our services to you and operation of our business generally.  Personal information means information that identifies you or that pertains and can be linked to you.

This Notice does not apply to websites or, except where noted below, Agents’ handling of personal information nor does it apply to any other website or application not linking to this Notice.  This Notice applies to individuals whose personal information is governed by the GDPR, typically permanent residents of the European Economic Area.

It is important that you read this Notice together with any other privacy policy or notice we may provide on our websites or on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal information about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your information. This Notice supplements other notices and privacy policies and is not intended to override them.

HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION

We collect information that you give us through our websites, mobile apps, over the phone, via email, and through other correspondence or communications.  For such directly and deliberately submitted information, you generally decide how much information to share with us, but not providing certain information may prevent us from fulfilling your request or otherwise performing the purpose for which the information is collected.  For example, in serving as a broker as to a Transaction, we are required by necessity, and in certain cases by law, to collect certain personal information to do so.  If you cannot or will not provide such information we will not be able to serve as a broker as to the Transaction or your Transaction may not be completed as planned or at all.

We may obtain information about you from other sources.  For example, when we serve as broker in your purchase or sale of a property (a “Transaction”), we may receive personal information from title companies, our Agents, and other parties in connection with the Transaction or from publicly available sources.  We may also receive information about you collected by our Agents prior to a Transaction.  And, when you create an account on our website using your Facebook credentials, we collect certain information from Facebook as set by your permissions for our websites within your Facebook account.  Additionally, our websites may permit you to share our posts and other content through your accounts on social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others in which case we may be notified of such activity.  You should review the privacy policy of those services, which governs your sharing activity through their service.

We collect information automatically.  By visiting and interacting with our websites and mobile applications, we collect certain technical data by automated means.   In most cases, this information is collected through web server logs or through the use of cookies and related technologies.  You can read about how we use cookies and your choices in limiting our use of them in our general Privacy Policy.

TYPES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

In general, we collect limited amounts of technical information to optimize and allow our websites to function, your name and contact information, information you share about your property interests and search criteria, and, if we serve as broker for your Transaction, information about the Transaction that would typically be accessible to a residential real estate broker.

More specifically, we collect the following personal information:

  • When you visit our websites [or download and use or mobile applications], we collect technical data such as your IP address or other device identifiers, browser type and version, operating system, and analytic information about your activity on the website [or application].
  • When you register on one or more of our websites so that, for example, you may save your property searches or receive notifications of new listings or when you request other information, we collect your basic contact information such as your first and last name and email address and such other contact information you share with us as well as the password you provide (which is hashed or encrypted). In conducting or saving a property search on our websites, you provide us with information about your search criteria and interests [directly or through our Agents].
  • If we serve as a broker in your Transaction (whether initially or until closing of the Transaction), we collect and otherwise may have access to the information pertaining to your Transaction. This includes details of the Transaction including required seller disclosures [as well as correspondence between you and your Agent that we are required by law to retain].
  • When we collect your personal information in the context of operation of our business, such as when we collect your information as a billing contact.

Personal information we collect from third parties such as from an Agent or in the course of brokering a Transaction is consistent with the information described above.

PURPOSES FOR PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION

When you visit our websites [or use our mobile applications], we process automatically collected technical data in order to make the websites function and optimized for your device and also to collect aggregated analytical data about usage of our websites by using Google Analytics, although we have enabled Google Analytics’ anonymizing feature.  You can read our general Privacy Policy for more information about how we use cookies.

When you search for properties or request notifications of listings based on certain criteria, sign up for our newsletter or blogs or make similar requests for information, we process the information collected in order to provide you with the requested service or information.  Where we receive your consent to do so, we may also use this information to send you marketing information, including property listings, we believe may be of interest to you.

When you register with our website, we collect your information including a password for purposes of establishing your online account.   In certain cases when you request information, we may automatically generate an account and issue a temporary password, which we email to the email address you provide.

When we serve as a broker in your Transaction, we use the information collected for the purpose of performing our services as broker in connection with the Transaction, including performing any legal and regulatory obligations we may have.

Additionally, we may use your personal information in the operation of our business generally, which may include the following:

  • To respond to and process your specific inquiries including support services and to provide you with information and access to resources that you have requested from us;
  • To administer, protect, operate, and maintain our websites and our systems and networks;
  • To improve the navigation and content of our websites, system administration and security;
  • To compile aggregated statistics about usage of our websites and to better understand the preferences of website visitors;
  • To help personalize and optimize the experience on our websites;
  • To help deliver information about our offerings to our clients and prospective clients;
  • To update you about changes in our privacy practices, terms of use and other matters pertaining to our relationship with you;
  • To disseminate our blogs, newsletters and similar communications;
  • To analyze and develop new products, services, and websites or improve existing ones;
  • To perform accounting, auditing, billing, reconciliation, collection, and similar administrative activities;
  • To prevent, detect, identify, investigate, respond to, and protect against potential or actual claims, liabilities, prohibited behavior, and criminal activity; and
  • To comply with and enforce applicable legal requirements, agreements, and policies.

LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION

Our legal basis for collecting and using your personal information will depend on the personal information concerned, the specific context in which we collect it and the purposes for which it is used.

However, we will normally collect and use your personal information only where we have your consent to do so (typically in order to send you marketing communications), where we need the personal information to create or perform a contract with you (for example, where we serve as broker for your Transaction or where you have agreed to our Terms of Use in using our websites), or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (for most of our activities not covered by consent or creation or performance of a contract).  In some very rare cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect or use your personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

If you have specific questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “How to Contact Us” heading below.

IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE PERSONAL INFORMATION

Where we need to collect personal information by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that information when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to serve as a broker in connection with your Transaction).  In this case, we may have to cancel our services to you, but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.  Please note that sales of properties are often subject to strict deadlines and timeframes.  Failure to provide necessary personal information when required could cause a Transaction to fail to be consummated.

HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

Where applicable, we share your personal information in the follow ways:

  • Within our group of affiliated companies (e.g. parent, subsidiaries) consistent with this Notice.
  • With Agents for purposes of assisting you in your property search and sale transactions.
  • Where we serve as broker for your residential purchase or sale, to those involved in the transaction (for example, the title company).
  • With our contracted service providers who perform services for us such as web hosting, cloud applications and infrastructure providers, communications, and technical services, marketing and relations management services, investigations and accounting services, customer support, and bill collection services. Such providers are obligated to only use the information as necessary to provide the contracted services to us.
  • If we believe disclosure is necessary and appropriate to prevent physical, financial, or other harm, injury, or loss, including to protect against fraud or credit risk or to pursue collections efforts or other legal rights and interests.
  • With legal, governmental, or judicial authorities, as instructed or required by those authorities or applicable laws, or in relation to a legal activity, such as in response to a subpoena or investigating suspected illicit activity.  We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies activities that we in good faith believe to be illegal.
  • In connection with, or during negotiations of, an acquisition, merger, asset sale, or other similar business transfer that involves substantially all of our assets or functions where personal information is transferred or shared as part of the business assets (provided that such party agrees to use such personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Notice).

Note, that while our Agents are affiliated with our brokerage, they operate as independent real estate agents and we may exchange your personal information that you submit to us or them and use it for our own respective purposes.  While we contractually restrict how Agents use personal information that they receive from us, you should look to your Agent for your questions about how they collect, use, protect and retain your personal information.
