Privacy Policy

The cdarealty.com website (Site) is owned and operated by Windermere Coeur D’Alene Realty, Inc. and Windermere Hayden, LLC (WCR). WCR promises to protect the personal information given to us by visitors to our website. Any information that you give to WCR will be held with the utmost care, and will not be used in any way to which you have not already consented. A more detailed explanation follows.

COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION

Much of the general information on the Site can be accessed without needing to register or log in; we therefore collect no information about you whatsoever when you are accessing these generic areas of our website. To search our database of properties for sale you may select one of three search methods.

Anonymous: You may elect to remain completely anonymous when you search for properties on the Site. If you select this option we do not collect any personal information from you. This option provides limited access to property information. For example, property addresses may not be disclosed to anonymous users.

In selecting an associate using Agent MatchMaker you agree that your use of the Site does not, in and of itself, create an agency relationship between you and the sales associate, or with any Windermere brokerage company. However, further interactions between you and the sales associate (including contacts via e-mail, phone or in person) may result in establishing an agency relationship under the laws of your state, or the state where the agent is located. Agency Disclosure information for Idaho where Windermere operates is available on the Site.

“Request More Information” about a property. Your request will be forwarded to the next available agent. By clicking “Request More Information,” about a property, you consent to being contacted using the contact information you provide – including phone contact, even if the phone number you provided is listed on any national or state “Do Not Call” registry. Furthermore, by requesting more information about a property you may be offered the opportunity to opt-in to receiving additional, ongoing contacts (by phone and/or e-mail) about other properties meeting your criteria, or about your local real estate market generally. Such ongoing communications will always include instructions for how to unsubscribe from receiving future communications

Browser information collected on the website: As with many website operators, WSC analyzes our website logs to constantly improve the value of our website to our visitors. We use an external service to provide real-time reporting to us and our authorized agents of browser accesses to our site. This includes page views, unique views, unique visitors, repeat visitors, frequency of visits, and peak-volume traffic periods. In our use of this service, we do not gather, request, record, require, collect, or track any Internet users’ personally identifiable information.

Except as disclosed in this policy, WSC does not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease personal information collected on our website to any third party.

DATA QUALITY AND ACCESS:

WSC provides you with the opportunity to know about the information that WSC holds about you, together with the ability to correct, amend or delete, as appropriate, any such information that is incomplete or inaccurate. Should you wish to exercise any of these options or should you have any questions or concerns about information that WSC has collected in relation to you, please feel free to contact us by emaili jamieziegler@windermere.com. Specific details on how to correct, change or remove subscription information from our e-mail lists are provided on the “My Account” page of “My Windermere.”

EXTERNAL LINKS:

The Site may provide links to various websites that WSC does not control. When you click on one of these links, you will be transferred out of our website and connected to the website of the organization or company that you selected. Even if an affiliation exists between our Site and a third party website, we exercise no control over linked sites. Each of these linked sites maintains its own independent privacy and data collection practices and procedures. If you visit a website that is linked to our site, you should consult that site’s privacy policy before providing any personal information.

INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION TRANSFERS

Any personally identifiable information that you provide to WSC will be collected and maintained directly on servers located in the United States and Canada. If you are located outside the United States, this means that any information you provide will be transferred abroad. While WSC is committed to providing your information with the highest level of privacy protection, we believe you should know that the general level of protection for personal information in the United States may not be the same as that provided in other countries, including those that belong to the European Economic Area.
