This Privacy Statement relates to our online information collection and use practices. This Website is owned and operated by Cornerstone Land Abstract. (“Cornerstone Land Abstract”). We recognize that many visitors and users of our Website are concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information. This Privacy Statement has been developed to address those concerns. We may update this Privacy Statement from time to time, so you should revisit it occasionally.
What Personal Information About You Do We Collect?
In order to access the Website, you will be required to provide certain personally identifiable information at various times and places, including but not limited to upon initial registration. These questions are intended to ascertain that you are qualified and an appropriate user of this Website and/or that you are a serious potential candidate for the products and services offered. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with requested information or Cornerstone Land Abstract declines to grant you access, you may not be able to access certain content or services offered on the Website.
Note To Parents / Children’s Privacy
Protecting children’s privacy is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information on our Website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Website is targeted to attract anyone under 13. We request that all visitors under 13 to our Website not disclose or provide any personally identifiable information. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete the child’s personally identifiable information from our records.
Other Information We Collect
Log Data: When you visit this Website, our web server automatically collects anonymous information that describes how our visitors use and navigate our Website, and which includes the number and frequency of visitors to each web page, the length of their stays and like information, as well as the anonymous information automatically sent to us by your web browser, such as browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting this Website, and IP addresses. We also may determine what technology is available through your browser in order to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page.
IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When visitors request pages from this Website, our servers log the visitor’s IP address. We may collect IP addresses for a variety of internal purposes, such as system administration and to audit the number of visits to different pages on this Website.
Web Beacons: While you are on the Website, or while you are otherwise viewing our content, you may encounter Web beacons, which may come from Cornerstone Land Abstract or from third parties, such as content providers. A Web beacon, which is sometimes also called a “Web bug” or “clear gif,” is a small graphic image in a Web page, a Web-based document or an e-mail message, which generally allows the party that set the Web beacon to monitor certain information about the viewer of the Web page, Web-based document or e-mail message, and it may allow access to certain cookies. Web beacons are usually invisible to the user, because they are small. In general, however, any electronic image viewed as part of a Web page, including an advertisement, can act as a Web beacon. Web beacons typically collect the URL of the page the Web beacon comes from, the type of browser requesting the Web beacon, the IP address of the computer that the Web beacon is sent to and the time the Web beacon was viewed. Web beacons can also be linked to personally identifiable information. We may aggregate information we collect through Web beacons. Cornerstone Land Abstract does not have control over Web beacons used by third parties and does not have access to whatever information they may collect.
How Do We Use and Disclose the Information We Collect
We use the personally identifiable information you provide to ascertain whether you are an appropriate user of this Website, to contact you regarding goods and services, and for other purposes disclosed at the time of collection.
We may share non-identifying aggregate information with third parties. However, we will not share your personally identifiable information with outside parties unless you specifically agree to a governing set of rules that allow such disclosure or otherwise give us permission to do so.
We may provide access to your personally identifiable information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Website, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors of this Website or the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that purpose.
In the event Cornerstone Land Abstract goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
We will not share your personally identifiable information in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
How To Access or Correct Information or Modify Your Choices
In certain instances you may visit the registration area of this Website where you will have the opportunity to access certain of your personally identifiable information, to correct errors in such information, and to update your preferences regarding what information you may receive from us. It may take us up to five (5) business days to process your changes, but we will do so as quickly as we can. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases.
Third Party Content
We take physical, electronic and managerial steps to maintain the security and accuracy of personally identifiable information we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. However, we make no representation, warranty or guarantee that such information will remain secure and accurate at all times. In addition, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
