What information is generated when you visit the TBR website?
Depending on how you use our web site, certain types of personal and non-personal information may be generated and collected. For example, you may give us your name or email address when you complete a registration screen, respond to a questionnaire, or submit an email to us. We will use any personal information that you provide to us by us primarily to fulfill the stated objective for which the information was requested or collected (e.g., if information is provided as a result of you emailing us, we will use the information provided, such as email address, to respond to you).
Find a REALTOR® and Affiliate Services Directory
TBR is a private trade association consisting of real estate professionals. As one of the many benefits of membership with TBR, we make available on our website searchable databases of our members called “Find a REALTOR” and “Affiliate Services Directory.” These directories can be used by the public to locate and contact our members by such characteristics as name, company, or affiliate service type.
The member information made available through the directories is intended to contain only the business information of our members. Under no circumstances will we intentionally display or make available on our website the personal home addresses or phone numbers of our members, unless an individual member indicates that a personal address, cell phone, or home phone number is their primary contact information.
Directors and Committee Members
We make available on the web site the names of members who are serving as directors or committee members of TBR, as well as their primary contact phone number and email address.
"Contact Us" Feature
Like most sites on the Internet, our website contains a feature that allows you to contact us with your comments or questions. The information collected through the "Contact Us" feature is used to investigate and respond to your inquiries. If you are a member, we may also use the information you provide to update our membership records.
Links to Other Sites
We may from time to time create and use surveys on our website. Most surveys will be simple "click box" surveys where you click a box on the screen to indicate your response. However, we may from time to time ask you for your name, email address, or demographic information. If a survey does ask you this information, we will use the information to complete the survey, compile statistics and update member records.
Advertising space on our website will be available to advertisers who purchase ad space in our print publications. The advertising space on the website will be a graphic link to the actual Internet site or email address of the advertiser.
While we hope you will find our advertisers' products helpful, we cannot assume any responsibility for the privacy practices of our advertisers. Therefore, like any other Internet site you may visit, we encourage you to become knowledgeable of the privacy policies and practices of our advertisers prior to providing information on their sites.
We may provide chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups on our website. While we feel these features will be helpful to the users of our web site, we will not monitor them regularly nor will we be responsible for what is said on or done as result of them. Please remember that any information you disclose on these types of features will be accessible to the public and you should exercise caution prior to disclosing any personal information on these features.
Required by Law
We may disclose information provided by you if we are legally required to do so, such as by court order or subpoena.
Our website does not currently attempt to collect or solicit information from persons who are under the age of eighteen. However, given the anonymous nature of the Internet, it is possible that someone under the age of eighteen may access our website and provide us with personal information. If this situation occurs and it is brought to our attention, we will not use the information in any way without prior parental consent and we will take all reasonable steps to prevent it from occurring again.
