Abandoned Homes Project Privacy Policy

All information collected on this site is used only by the Abandoned Homes Project (hereafter referred to as “The Project”), the organization that owns this site. We do not sell, give or trade information with third parties. This policy describes all the ways we currently use the information you give to us.


If we decide to change our data collection and use practices, we will first publish a new policy on this web page before modifying our practices. YOUR ONLY NOTICE OF CHANGES IN OUR DATA COLLECTION AND USE PRACTICES WILL BE BY READING THIS PRIVACY POLICY. Information you provide while the current policy is in effect will be treated as promised in the current policy. Thus any changes we make in the future will not affect you unless you submit additional information after the modifications. For this reason, we encourage you to read this policy again if you submit additional information in the future.


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.


The Project and/or the host of its website may use “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that are placed on a visitor’s computer hard drive that, among other things, allow The Project and/or the host of its website to record how many times a user or computers within a user’s network of computers has visited the website, the number of times various pages of the website have been accessed and other such information. You may disable receipt of cookies using features of your internet browser that disable or turn off cookies. The Project does not use cookies to retrieve information that is unrelated to your visit to or your interaction with The Project’s site.



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.


This site provides links to other sites as a benefit to you. The Project is not in control of the information collection and dissemination practices of the sites to which this site links, nor do we necessarily endorse such practices merely by providing links. We urge you to use discretion in providing personal information to the sites to which we link. The Project urges you to review the privacy policies posted on these third party websites at the time you first visit such sites. We undertake no obligation to review or ensure enforcement or compliance with the privacy policy of any website to which the The Project website links.



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?
