This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for our Macy Homes web site at http://www.macyhomes.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this web site. This notice will inform you of the following:
What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the web site, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
We only collect enough information from you to respond to your requests for information and to help you find a new home. It is extremely important to us and to our business that we treat your personal information in a way that is secure, private, and risk-averse.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to and collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use you information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization beyond what is necessary to fulfill your request, for example, to run a credit report if you have asked to pre-qualify for a home loan online.
Internet service providers that provide internet access assign unique IP (internet protocol) addresses to computers that connect to the internet through their networks. Unique addresses ensure that email, web site, and other internet traffic reach their destination. These IP addresses often change and some internet providers share IP addresses among their customers who access the internet. Therefore, IP addresses are of limited use and concern.
Periodically we utilize IP addresses to improve the technical performance of our web site or to determine the effectivity of advertising with various online web sites. IP addresses are never used to connect your personally identifiable information with your visitor activity online.
We do not use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to improve user access to a site and identify repeat visitors to a site. Macy Homes does not utilize this tracking technology.
Credit Report Providers
When visitors voluntarily submit a Pre-Qualification form online, we partner with another party to provide credit reports based on visitor provided information. If a visitor requests pre-qualification, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide us with a credit report. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via any email address or phone number given on our web site:
See what data we have about you, if any.
Change/correct any data we have about you.
Have us delete any data we have about you.
Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We take numerous precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the web site, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as your social security number), 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 use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need your information to perform a specific job (for example, to provide requested information) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
As a business that operates in California, we work hard to comply and stay current with all California state laws that protect your privacy online and offline. We have made significant efforts to ensure that we comply with state laws to handle your personal data in an appropriate manner that meets your information needs with as little risk as possible to your personal data.
