Like most website operators, Big Bang Realty collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Big Bang Realty’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Big Bang Realty’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Big Bang Realty may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Big Bang Realty also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on bigbangrealty.com blog posts. Big Bang Realty only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Big Bang Realty’s websites choose to interact with Big Bang Realty in ways that require Big Bang Realty to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Big Bang Realty gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask agents who sign up for a subscription at bigbangrealty.com to provide a username and email address.
