How I Use this Information
I am in the business of selling homes. This is a primary interest with respect to your personal information. I collect this information to best serve your needs whether the purchase or sale of a home is now or in the future. Your personal information helps me communicate properly with you to that end. Many of my online customers are not completely ready to start the process so I hold on to your personal information until such time as you verbally state you do not need my services any longer and at that time I set your status to “deleted”. I do not physically delete your information from my database unless you specifically request it but I do cease all communications verbal and electronic. On the other hand, should you complete the purchase or sale of a home with our office your information is kept in my database forever unless you specifically request it to be deleted.
I will not sell, provide or share your information with unaffiliated third parties. I do share your data with my real estate brokerage and any applicable service provider when I need to complete any of your requests. I reserve the right to disclose your information if necessary as required by law or for any legal process.
