Our Commitment To PrivacyYour 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 on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
Accordingly, at Regional IDX we have a few fundamental principles:
* We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
* We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
* We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
* In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Regional IDX Inc. (“Regional IDX”) operates several websites including RegionalIDX.com. It is Regional IDX’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Website VisitorsLike most website operators, Regional IDX collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Regional IDX’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Regional IDX’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Regional IDX may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Regional IDX also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Regional IDX does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying InformationCertain visitors to Regional IDX’s websites choose to interact with Regional IDX in ways that require Regional IDX to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Regional IDX gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Regional IDX – by purchasing access to the services provided, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Regional IDX collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Regional IDX. Regional IDX does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the RegionalIDX.com web site. On some pages, you can order products, make requests, and register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:
Credit/Debit Card Information
On some pages, you can submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient's address. In this circumstance, the types of personal information collected are:
The Way We Use InformationWe use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
If we offer gift-cards by which you can personalize a product you order for another person. Information you provide to us to create a gift-card is only used for that purpose, and it is only disclosed to the person receiving the gift.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
You can register with our website if you would like to receive our online catalog as well as updates on our new products and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.
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.
Aggregated StatisticsRegional IDX may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Regional IDX may monitor the most popular blogs on the RegionalIDX.com site or use spam screened to help identify spam. Regional IDX may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Regional IDX does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying InformationTo prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Regional IDX discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Regional IDX’s behalf or to provide services available at Regional IDX’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Regional IDX’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Regional IDX will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Regional IDX discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Regional IDX believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Regional IDX, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Regional IDX website and have supplied your email address, Regional IDX may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Regional IDX and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Regional IDX takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Our Commitment To Children's PrivacyProtecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
CommentsComments and other content submitted to our anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
How You Can Access Or Correct Your InformationYou can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by logging into your account in the members section of this web site. 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.
