1. Information Collection and Use
Purplewire, the developer of CNYHomes, is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Purplewire collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

2. Email Campaigns
We record aggregate statistics on the images that are loaded when HTML e-mails are read, in order to help determine the percentage of e-mails we send that are viewed in a given time frame. We do not collect any information about when or if our e-mails are read by specific individuals. Users who click through to our website from links in our e-mail are logged. This information is used in accordance with Section 1 above.

3. Registration
In the future, CNYHomes might offer services such as e-mail notification of new homes that match a user's preferences. In order to use this feature, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used only to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest.

4. Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the userís hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site.

5. Log Files
We use IP addresses 1 to analyze trends, administer the site, track userís movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

6. Links
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that CNYHomes is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

7. Surveys and Forms
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or other forms. Participation in these surveys or forms is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used only in regard to a specific question the user has submitted. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

8. Security
All of our usersí information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customersí information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to CNYHomes by using our contact form.

9. Correction/Updating Personal Information:
If a userís personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that userís personal data provided to us. This can be done by sending an email to CNYHomes by using our contact form.

10. Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

11. Contact Us
If you have any questions or concerns about CNYHomes' use of your information or about this Online Privacy Statement, please send an email to CNYHomes by using our contact form.

1 An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop.
