What is personal information?

Personal information is generally any information about an identifiable person other than the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization, provided that such business contact information is used only to contact the employee in their business or professional capacity.

How does Darby Hiles collect personal information from you?

We collect personal information from you only for the purposes we identify to you at or prior to the time we collect such personal information. We do not require this information in order for you to obtain access, to surf or to view the content on this website.

For those few activities on our Sites where the collection of personal information is necessary (for example, when you contact us with a question or a request), you will know because the purposes for which your personal information is to be used will be identified to you. For those activities, we may collect, for example, your name, street address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address and postal code. When you complete a realty request, it may be necessary for us to supplement the information you provide with information from third party sources. We will not collect more information than is necessary.

Does Darby Hiles collect or use information collected from you with technology?

This Site collects some information about you using technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to our Sites, your IP address may be collected so that we know how many visits we have had by separate individuals. An IP address is often associated with the place from which you enter the Internet like your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or your firm or company. This information is not personally identifiable.

How does Darby Hiles use the personal information he has collected from you?

Darby Hiles collects and uses personal information to respond to your questions or comments, to send out information and reports about real estate or mortgage services, to promote the products or services of other third-party partners, to administer certain services as identified to you at the time of collection, to refer you (with your consent) to another agent or broker if there is a service that we cannot provide for you. We will also use such information for statistical and marketing analyses, in a form where the information is no longer identifiable with you which may also be shared with third-party's.

To whom will Darby Hiles provide your personal information?

Personal information is used by us and may be used by others. We will not disclose such information, other than as follows:

  1. to third-party service providers with whom Darby has a contractual agreement, which includes appropriate privacy standards, for the purpose of (i) performing functions such as data processing, database services, marketing or information technology support; (ii) submitting and processing your loan and realty requests; (iii) sharing your information for the promotion of third-party products and/or services; (iv) providing insurance for Darby Hiles product liability claims on behalf of Darby Hiles; or (v) referring you to another agent or broker;

  2. to comply with any legal actions like a court order, to enforce our user agreement/terms and conditions for this Site or to protect the safety and security of guests and our site; and

  3. as otherwise permitted or required by law.

We will let you know at the time the information is collected if such third-party sharing is anticipated, will identify the types of businesses at the area of collection, will describe the information we will share (like your mail or e-mail address) and will only share data if you agree. We recommend that you contact such other parties directly for more information about their privacy policies.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may also (a) make disclosures of personal information to a potential acquiror in connection with a transaction involving the sale of our business, and (b) send personal information outside of the country for the purposes set out above, including for process and storage by service providers in connection with such purposes, and you should note that while such information is out of the country, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is held, and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of such other country, pursuant to the laws of such country.
