MBK Real Estate: Privacy Policy

Version 2.0 - Updated August 11, 2014


At MBK (referred to as "us" or "we" in this Privacy Policy), your personal privacy is important to us. The following Privacy Policy describes the practices that we have adopted.

Please review this Privacy Policy, which governs the information collected through the Website. Each time you access, use, or browse the Website, you signify your acceptance of the then-current Privacy Policy. If you do not accept this Privacy Policy, you are not authorized to use the Website and must discontinue the use of the Website immediately.

Our Collection and Use of Your Personally Identifiable Information
As part of the normal operation of the Website, we may collect and, in some cases, use or disclose information about you where we reasonably believe it will help us administer our business or provide products, services or other opportunities to you. The personally identifiable information that you give us may, among other things, allow us to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze Website usage, improve our content and product offerings and customize our Website's content, layout and services. For our records, we may, in our sole discretion, retain original and updated information for reasons such as technical constraints, dispute resolution, troubleshooting and agreement enforcement. This Privacy Policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we may collect from you. We do not have a process for you to review and request changes to your personally identifiable information that is collected through the Website.

MBK collects information from our users at several different points, including but not limited to the following:

Information You Provide To Us
Any personal information that we may collect about you is voluntarily provided to us by you. We receive and may store the information you provide to us. As you navigate through the Website, there are several online forms which you can use to request information about us. In order for us to respond to your request, we ask that you provide to us, among other things, your first and last name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address on the online form. Other information may be identified as optional, and you may choose whether or not to provide it. The use of these online forms is completely voluntary. We may use your first and last name, email address, mailing address and telephone number to contact you from time to time. Visitors to the Website may navigate the entire Website without using any of these features or providing any information.

If you correspond with us, we may retain such information. In addition, where we have sent an email to you, we may receive confirmation that you have opened it. If you want to unsubscribe from an MBK email list, please let us know by following the "Unsubscribe" instructions that are included in each promotional email from us. Please note that such requests may take up to ten (10) days to become effective. You may not opt out of receiving communications regarding certain dealings with the Website or technical information about the Website.

Cookies and Other Tracking Methods
Like many websites, we use cookies and similar technologies to collect additional website usage data. A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information; however, once you choose to furnish a site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. When you access our Website, we look into the cookie to fill out some fields you would otherwise have to re-enter (but not passwords or any financial information) and customize our Website to be more relevant to you. There are products commercially available that are designed to help you disable cookies. You may delete and/or decline our cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, but some parts of our Website may not work properly if you do so and this may affect your ability to use the full functionality of the Website. Also, most browsers have incorporated certain "do not track" (DNT) features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. At this time, our Website does not respond to browser "do not track" (DNT) signals or other "opt out" settings or features that may be offered by your browser or similar devices, however, we reserve the right to do so in the future.

Google Analytics
Our Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies and similar technologies to collect and store anonymous information about you, which may include the non-personal information described above. You can read Google Analytics' privacy policy at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ and Google Analytics Terms of Use at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Our Website may use certain features of Google Analytics, including:

(a) "Demographics and Interest Reporting" to analyze information regarding the interests and demographics of users of the Website. We use such non-personal information in the same manner as we use other non-personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.
(b) "Remarketing with Google Analytics" to place ads on other sites directed to people who have visited the Website.
(c) "Google Display Network Impression Reporting" to report how people's interactions with our ads relate to their visits to the Website. You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads by changing the ad settings at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662856. You also can opt-out from being tracked by Google Analytics in the future by downloading and installing Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on for your current web browser at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time, our Website may request information from you via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include, but is not limited to, contact information (such as name, telephone number, email and mailing address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level, interests).

Information from Other Sources
We may receive information about you from other sources, such as our agents, vendors and service providers and from publicly available sources. For example, sometimes we receive updated address information from third parties that we may use to update our records.

Disclosing Information To Third Parties

We may reveal personally identifiable information about you to third parties (including any agents, vendors, service providers and any affiliate or subsidiary we may have) for their independent use, including, without limitation, if: (1) you request or authorize it; (2) the information is provided to help promote or otherwise market a service or product to you or complete a transaction for you; (3) the information is provided to comply with the law, enforce our Terms of Use or other agreements we have with you, or to protect our rights, property or safety, or the rights, property or safety of others; (4) the disclosure is done as part of a purchase, sale or transfer of services or assets (for example, if substantially all of our assets are acquired by another party, your information may be one of the transferred assets); or (5) the information is provided to our agents, vendors or service providers who perform functions on our behalf. We may also gather aggregated data about you and disclose the results of such aggregated (but not personally identifiable) information to third parties for marketing, promotional or other purposes.

Inapplicability of Privacy Policies of Any Linked Websites or Other Third Parties
