We Respect Your Privacy
Information We Collect
Winchester Homes™ collects two types of information about you when you visit one of our web sites: personal information (including, by way of example only, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and your realtor's name and contact information, if applicable) and non-personal, aggregate information (such as information regarding the pages on our site that you have visited and your IP address).
1. Personally Identifiable Information
The only personally identifying information that we collect and store about you is the information that you choose to provide to us. For example, if you request information about Winchester Homes™ properties, we will have to collect your personal information to respond to your request. Additionally, if you wish to register on the Winchester Homes™ web site, you will be required to submit your personal information. If you send us an e-mail requesting information about Winchester Homes™ or otherwise asking us a question, we may collect your name, address, e-mail address and other personal information so that we can respond to your request or question. We may also from time to time send you email and postal mail correspondence regarding products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
2. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We collect and use non-personally identifiable information about you in the following ways:
Referrers, IP Addresses and Other Non-Personal Information
Winchester Homes™ may also collect information through "referrers," IP addresses and various environmental variables. A "referrer" is information the web browser passes along to the Winchester Homes™ web server that references the URL from which you came. An "IP address" is a number used by computers on a network to identify your computer so that data can be transmitted to you. "Environmental variables" may include, among other things, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed the applicable web site, the type of web browser and operating system or platform used, the Internet address you visited before visiting a Winchester Homes™ web site, the pages you visit while at one of our web sites and the Internet address of the web site you then visit. We may collect all of this information to allow us to detect broad demographic trends, to provide information tailored to your interests and to enhance your experience on our web sites.
Sharing Your Information With Third Parties
1. Disclosure of Information by Winchester Homes™
We may share your personal information with third parties including our Internet web site hosting company, our promotion company, and our advertising agency. These parties will only use the information they obtain from us for the purpose of providing services to Winchester Homes™. Further, Winchester Homes™ may disclose your personal information if Winchester Homes™ reasonably believes it is required to do so by law, to protect itself, or to protect another user.
Though we may also from time to time share your personal information to third parties for research and development purposes, we will not sell your personal information to any third parties, other than as specifically disclosed in this policy. If you do not wish for Winchester Homes™ to share your information with the third parties noted above, please do not submit your personal information to Winchester Homes™.
From time to time, we might offer chat rooms or posting boards. Keep in mind that if you choose to post information in any chat rooms or on any posting boards, you may be revealing your personal information to the public.
