WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES THE ABANDONED HOMES PROJECT COLLECT?
When you visit The Project’s website, you remain anonymous. To the extent you use e-mail links or the Feedback Form via the website to communicate with The Project and provide us with personally identifiable information, however, you will not remain anonymous. Because it is not possible to anticipate every conceivable context in which such information might be provided to us via e-mail or the Feedback Form, we can provide you no assurance that personally identifiable information you choose to provide to us via e-mail or the Feedback Form will be maintained as private.
As you browse this site, The Project and its web hosting service may collect hit data or other web statistics in order to monitor website traffic patterns. The Project does not attempt to link web traffic patterns to personally identifiable information. The Project uses all non-personally identifiable data that it collects internally and together with its website designer and host in order to improve The Project’s website. The information is used, for example, to evaluate what portions of the website are more popular than others, to determine from where visitors came to the site, and to determine how many times particular pages of the site were accessed in aggregate. The Project’s personnel uses the data to prepare reports regarding website activity as part of the process of maintaining and improving the site.
We urge everybody under the legal age of adult to avoid disclosing any information over the Internet that would allow someone to identify them personally, including without limitation, their name, phone number, address, or social security number.
WHAT STEPS DOES THE ABANDONED HOMES PROJECT TAKE TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY?
The Project does not presently collect personally identifiable information via its website except to the extent that such information is provided in unsolicited e-mails or on the Feedback Form. The Project and the host of its website take reasonable security precautions to maintain the privacy of the data that is collected, such as ensuring that it is accessible only to appropriate personnel and that the information is user ID- and password-protected.
For all practical purpose, only attorneys or staff working for The Project will have access to the information you submit through e-mail or the Feedback Form. However, it is also possible that our Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as your own ISP may access the information you submit over the Internet to us, although it is generally not the practice of ISPs to do so. Finally, although highly unlikely, computer hackers may be able to gain access to information you submit when it’s transmitted through the Internet or sitting on your server or our server.
BECAUSE WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THE PRIVACY OF INFORMATION YOU SUBMIT OVER THE INTERNET, no attorney-client relationship is created by sending us e-mail or using the Feedback Form via this site.
WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN’S PRIVACY?
The Project does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from any children under age 13.
Is Data Storage and Processing Conducted in the United States?
