This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for InformedAppraiser.com. By using this website, you are agreeing to the terms specified in this policy. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this web site.
Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available via our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested. From time to time, we may make changes to this policy as deemed appropriate; please review it on a regular basis.
The Information We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the Informed Appraiser website. The types of personal and other information collected include, but are not limited to:
- Email address
- Phone number
- Content submissions (such as links, reviews, comments, and other pertinent information)
The Way We Use Information
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. The personal information collected from each user is utilized to maintain records of each user’s account and preferences so that a superior user experience can be achieved. Users are provided the opportunity to create a unique “user name” for their accounts. When submitting information to the website, users may be given the option to identify themselves as the contributor or author of such information. Alternatively, they may opt to contribute anonymously.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers, if any. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
With regard to user-supplied site content, we recognize that the very nature of this website depends, to a large degree, on the willingness of our users to submit information (such as relevant website links and details or comments about such links) to be added to the website’s database. To this end, we offer registered users the option to have such submissions attributed to them by name. Alternatively, submissions may be made anonymously such that the submitter’s identity will not be publicly associated with the submission.
In order to facilitate the continued operation of this website, all submissions become the property of Informed Appraiser. With the goal of maintaining a high professional standard for the content of the website, the management reserves the right to reject, edit, or otherwise modify submissions as deemed appropriate for such purposes. Users may contest any such actions, however the final determination remains the prerogative of the management.
With respect to advertisements: To bring you offers that are of interest to you, we may form relationships with other companies and allow them to place ads on our web pages. As you utilize the website, ad server companies may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information. This is standard practice for virtually all websites that feature targeted advertising.
Though Informed Appraiser as a matter of policy makes user privacy a top priority, it may under specific circumstances be necessary to disclose personal information when required by law. In addition, we may utilize such information when it is believed necessary in the course of business to bill and/or collect amounts owed to us, enforce website policies, protect rights or property, or protect other users from malicious actions.
Informed Appraiser may use third-party advertising companies to display ads on the website. In that case, industry-standard web advertising technology will be employed by such companies to make the advertising targeted and relevant in order to best serve you, the user, as well as the advertising parties.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures and precautions to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we make every effort to follow generally accepted industry standards in protecting all personal information submitted to the website, no Internet data transmission can be guaranteed 100% secure. Hence, we cannot absolutely guarantee the security of data submitted to the website.
Furthermore, please be advised that the websites that InformedAppraiser.com links to are outside of our domain and as such, we cannot vouch for the security of visiting or otherwise interacting with these sites. Likewise, the accuracy and reliability of the information provided by such outside websites cannot be guaranteed.
As a user of the site, there are basic responsibilities (common to many websites) that you must take in order to maintain your security. Upon registering an account with Informed Appraiser, you will either receive or specify a password. How your account name and password are used is your own responsibility. It is strongly suggested, for your own protection, that you not share your account information with others. Doing so may compromise the security and accessibility of your account. In the event that you become aware of unauthorized use of your account, you are to notify Informed Appraiser immediately. Furthermore, upon completing a session of website use, each user shall properly log out or exit from their account. Because your account and password belong to you, Informed Appraiser cannot be held responsible for any damages that result from your failure to follow these directions.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Information
You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by navigating to the “Your Account” section of the website. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.
You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.
To protect your privacy and security, we may also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
