At Real Boston, we respect your privacy and will not sell, trade or give away any information about you, including your email address, to any company, organization, or individual without your permission.
The information you provide Real Boston will be used solely for the purposes of emailing you our newsletter or contacting you to explain any and all of our services, and related information, including putting you in touch with other firms that we refer business to or that help us help you find a real estate professional.
We do retain the information provided via email, telephone, in person, or in forms filled out on our Web site to periodically follow up with you via email, telephone, and/or text message about our services and to provide home-buying and home-buying-related information. Your request to be removed from any email or other list will be honored.
If you request a referral to another professional, such as a real estate lawyer or lender, we will pass along the information you provided us to fulfill your request.
We use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
We may license web-based, automated marketing software that employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), which help us better manage our Web site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients.
This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs in emails to the personal information Web users may have provided to us.
