When you visit the Site, OL collects information about you and your browsing habits. The information we collect depends on the pages of our website you visit and what you do during your visit.
OL may collect information from you automatically when you visit our website, which may include the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer; the type of browser and software operating system you use; web log data, including the date and time you access our website; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked to our site.
Several companies offer tools that allow people to browse the web anonymously. We cannot provide you a personalized experience if you use these tools, because we cannot recognize you and your computer. However, we want to ensure you know of their existence. Because OL does not track your online activities over time and across third party websites in order to provide targeted advertising, OL does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
For most of the browsing services on the Site, OL does not require your personal information. There are portions of the Site where you will be given the option to provide information about you. The information that you may be asked to provide may include your name, email address, telephone number, and address. Depending on your request and other circumstances, other information may also be collected. It is your discretion and determination whether to provide such information. If you use the Site to inquire about a property or contact a real estate agent, broker, or office, the information you have provided may be shared with a OL real estate agent, broker, or market center. Additionally, when you use the Site to search for a property, you may be directed to a website operated by a OL franchisee and we may provide that OL office or real estate agent with the information you have provided (e.g. your contact information as provided by you or the parameters of your search) in addition to information automatically collected about you (e.g. your browser type or operating system version).
Use of the Information
OL uses the information it collects (whether submitted by you or automatically collected) to respond to your requests, to provide you with information that OL thinks may be of interest to you, and to operate its business. OL may also disclose your information to its affiliates, agents, and third-party vendors and service providers working on our behalf.. OL has implemented technical measures to protect against the risks of unauthorized access to, erroneous disclosure of, and unlawful interception of Personally Identifiable Information. You should know, however, that OL cannot fully eliminate such risks.
In addition, OL may disclose aggregated data and statistics in order to describe the Site to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes. Additionally, OL may disclose part or all of a user's personal information when OL believes, in good faith, that the law requires or compels such disclosure, or when OL has good faith reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to protect OL' rights or property, the rights of another user or to prevent harm. Further, OL may disclose information provided by you as part of any merger, sale, acquisition, or other acquisition of same or all of OL or its assets.
