Information We Collect About You
We may collect or receive a variety of information from you when you use our Website or interact with our Company representatives, such as:
Information We Never Want to Collect
We never wish to receive and do not intend to collect any information about you that would be considered highly sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, drivers license information (except when we are required to verify your age in connection with communities that are age-restricted), bank account or bank routing information, credit card information, income tax information, pay statements, credit reports, health-related information, or anything of that nature. If we inadvertently receive such information, our policy is to destroy it (for example, shredding physical copies) as soon as possible after receipt.
Further, because we are committed to the letter and the spirit of federal and state policies intended to achieve equal housing opportunity for all, we do not request or maintain any personal information relating to a customers race, color, religion, gender, handicap, familial status or national origin. We do not in any way limit the marketing and sales of our homes based on this type of personal information.

The technologies used for this automatic data collection may include cookies (or browser cookies). A browser cookie is a small text file placed on your computer to remember interactions with our Website, such as login credentials, preferences, and actions across different sessions. Our system may issue cookies when you direct your browser to our Website.

Information We Collect Through Third Parties
We may collect or receive information about you from our business partners, such as mortgage lenders, title companies, closing agents, warranty insurance providers, and insurance companies. We will treat this type of information like we treat information we collected directly from you.
How We May Use or Disclose Your Information
We may use or disclose the information we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information, for various purposes depending upon how you use our services, how you interact with us, and the permissions you give us. This may include:
Protection of Your Information
We have adopted physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect personal information in our custody and control against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, use, modification, and disclosure. For example, our team uses updated and appropriate information technology procedures regarding the security of the information we collect on our Website. We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data. But no transmission over the internet or any storage method is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our services, nor can we guarantee that the information you provide will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the internet or through vulnerabilities outside of our environment. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its security.
Text messaging systems are less secure because they often use the resident messaging systems on a Company representatives personal phone. Therefore, we strongly discourage any exchange of substantive information by text messaging or other instant messaging applications.
We may use third-party ad servers (or ad networks) to deliver ads to you on our behalf. These third-party ad servers may collect and use information from your visits to our website to present advertisements that may interest you. The third-party ad servers typically provide options for opting out of the advertising.
Google Analytics and other Analytics Applications
We also use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google that utilizes the data collected across multiple devices to track and examine the use of this Website to prepare reports on a users activities and share them with other Google services. Google Analytics uses first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) or other first-party identifiers and third-party cookies (such as Google Advertising cookies) or other third-party identifiers to make advertising more engaging to users. Google may use the data collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its advertising network. Google offers options for opting out of Google Analytics tracking. We may use other similar analytics tools in the future, but we will ensure that each tool will offer options for opting out of the analytics tracking.
Do Not Track
Our Website does not currently support Do Not Track (DNT). DNT is a privacy preference that you can set in your web browser to indicate that you do not want certain information about your webpage visits collected across websites when you have not interacted with that service on the page.
