The Durst Organization (“Durst”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust as it relates to the privacy of your information. This privacy notice (this “Privacy Notice”) describes our policies and practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of that information through the mobile and desktop versions of our website, web pages, interactive features and social media pages and their respective contents (collectively, the “Site”) whether accessed via computer, mobile device or other technology.
The Site is currently being tested and is collecting a limited amount of information.
Personal Information: We will collect your name and email address when you register for an account, as well as your account password. Our use, sharing and protection of the other person's information will also be subject to the terms of this Privacy Notice.
Communications: You may send us communications, for example to report a problem or to submit queries, concerns, or comments regarding the Site.
Our web servers collect the Internet Protocol addresses, but not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. This information can measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, pages viewed, and other such statistics. In addition, you may be asked for information that identifies you, including your name, email address, mailing address, zip code, telephone number, and/or fax. You may also elect to provide such information to us by sending or responding to emails regarding certain listings or services offered the Site.
Please be aware that if you disable or reject Cookies, some features and services of the Site may not work properly because we may not be able to recognize and associate you with your account.
Web Beacons: We may also include web beacons (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, tracking beacons and clear GIFs) with the content that we deliver to you, which we will use to collect information regarding your interaction with such content. A web beacon is a transparent graphic image placed on a web page or in an email, which indicates that a page or email has been viewed or that an email has been forwarded. In addition, a web beacon allows third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer or mobile device that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in Cookies set by the third party. A web beacon may also tell your browser to get content from another server.
We use the information we collect about and from you to respond to your requests; verify your identity; communicate with you about your account and activities on the Site and, in our discretion, changes to any the Site policy; tailor content, improve the Site; comply with legal obligations; and for purposes disclosed at the time you provide your Personal Information or otherwise with your consent. We may collect your location based information.
When you request information, we need to know your name, email address, and mailing address. This allows us to process and fulfill your request.
We may also send you communications unless or until such time as you terminate your account.
Except as described here, we will not trade, rent, or share any of your personal information to any third parties without your specific consent. We may share non-personal information, such as aggregate data and site activity information with third parties. We may also share your information as disclosed at the time you provide your information, as set forth in this Privacy Notice and in the following circumstances:
You may always direct us not to share your information with third parties, not to use your information to provide you with information or offers, or not to send you emails or other communications by: (i) sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org; or (ii) following the unsubscribe instructions within the Site's emails.
If you wish to modify, verify, correct, or delete any of your information collected through the Site, you may edit account information or contact us at the above address or email. In accordance with our routine record keeping, we may delete certain records that contain information you have submitted through the Site. We are under no obligation to store such information indefinitely and disclaim any liability arising out of, or related to, the destruction of such information. It may not always be possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, contact us at 212-257-6600. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
The Site is not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal information from anyone under 13 years of age. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain his/her personal information without the parent/guardian’s consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 13, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our records.
We take information security seriously and use certain reasonable security measures to help protect your personal information. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use the Site and provide us with your information at your own risk.
Although we will use reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of personally identifiable information collected on the Site, subject to the provisions of this Privacy Notice, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. We will have no liability for disclosure of personally identifiable information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized acts of third parties or through the use of third party cookies, including those of any advertisers when you view or click on their advertisements. Once you leave this Website, you will be subject to third party privacy policies, which may differ significantly from our Privacy Notice.

The Site makes no representation that it is governed by or operated in accordance with the laws of any other nation. By using the Site, or providing us with any information, you (a) acknowledge that the Site is subject to the laws of the United States, (b) consent to the collection, processing, maintenance and transfer of such information in the United States and other applicable territories in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as or equivalent to those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen, and (c) waive any claims that may arise under those laws.
We may update this Privacy Notice to reflect changes to our information practices.
