The Ameristar family of sites, including but not limited to this site, is committed to your privacy and security and wants to provide you with the best possible online experience. To that end, we want you to understand what kinds of information we gather from you, how this information is used and safeguarded, and how you can control its use.
What information is collected from me?
The kinds of information we collect from you will vary, depending on how you use our Web sites. It's possible to browse our sites without submitting any personally identifiable information ("personal information") at all, but if you choose to take advantage of some of our services, you may be asked to provide information such as a user name and password, your real name, e-mail address, phone number, address, or housing needs.
In addition to the information you choose to submit, our systems are set up to gather certain anonymous data to help us better understand how our sites are being used and how we can improve them. This automatically gathered data includes your computer's IP or "Internet Protocol" address, statistics about how visitors navigate through our sites, and information provided through the use of "cookies".
How is my information used?
The use of your information depends on the context in which it is collected. Therefore, pay special attention to the categories below that relate to the features of our sites that you wish to utilize. Also be aware that Homestore.com may at times be legally compelled to disclose certain information, by means such as subpoenas or court orders.
Unless you specify that you'd prefer not to hear from us, we may also use the e-mail address you provide at registration to contact you for other reasons. You may have these communications terminated at any time. If you indicate that you're interested in hearing from other companies, we may also share your contact information for that purpose.
From time to time, we may wish to use personal information you provide when requesting a product or service for purposes beyond those listed above. If this is the case, you will always be notified of the additional use prior to your submitting the personal information, and you'll be given a chance to "opt out" of that use or to not complete the request for the particular product or service.
You may occasionally see contests, surveys, and other features of our Web sites that ask you to provide us with information. When you choose to respond to these requests, the information you offer may be used for several reasons. If we are going to use your personal information for any other purposes, we will notify you of that purpose and give you a chance to opt out before responding to our survey or other request, or to not respond to or participate in the survey or other request.
Our Web sites enable you to send e-mail to us or to third parties. Whenever you choose to initiate these kinds of communication with us, or anyone else, you may expect to be contacted in return. Also remember that our bulletin boards and discussion groups are open to the public-what you post there can be seen by anyone and is not protected by Homestore.com. Please use your own discretion when deciding what to post publicly and whom to contact.
If you participate in any referral service we may offer, we will use the information you submit to determine which of our participating professionals may be able to serve your needs. We may then forward your name, contact information, and other responses to our sign-up form to the selected professional(s), who may then contact you using that information. Any information that you provide may also be used by us in accordance with the uses set out in the Registration section, above.
Automatically Gathered Data
The information gathered automatically by our system-such as your computer's IP address, the kind of browser you're using, and a record of your navigation through our site-may be used by AmeriStar so we can understand how to make our sites convenient and useful to our audience. This information may also be shared among the various Web sites in our family and used for similar purposes.
What choices do I have regarding the use of my information?
How do I "opt-out"?
You also have the ability to terminate e-mail correspondence from us at any time. You will either be given the chance to opt out of direct mailings when you disclose your e-mail address to us, you can simply reply to our e-mail, typing "Unsubscribe" in the subject line or e-mail the appropriate Web master below with your request, and we will promptly remove your address from that e-mail service: firstname.lastname@example.org.
