PLEASE READ THIS POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU PROVIDE US WITH ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION.
If you have questions about this policy, please email us at email@example.com
1.1 Personal Information Collection and Use
When on the Royist Site, you have the option of creating an account (e.g. when saving searches, signing up for alerts, sharing assets, contacting agents, etc.) and to subscribing to our premium service. When you sign up, we ask you to give us contact information (such as name, telephone number and email address).
We use the information we collect to:
• find the most relevant information by organizing the Web site optimally
• find relevant news and information via email (if you have registered your email address)
1.2 Disclosure of Personal Information
We may release personal information when we believe that doing so is appropriate to comply with the law (for example, to respond to a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply our policies; to initiate, render, bill, and collect for amounts owed to us; to protect our rights or property; to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our site or services; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
We may use third party service providers to assist us with the administration of the site or otherwise perform services on our behalf, including payment transaction processing and sending email. Such third parties may be supplied with or have access to your personal information solely to provide services to us or on our behalf.
We may use third-party ad servers (or ad networks) to deliver ads to you on our behalf. These third-party ad servers may collect and use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to our site in order to present advertisements that may be of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice or to opt out of having this information used by third-party ad servers to provide targeted ads, please visit the Network Advertising website.
Information about our users and the site is a business asset of Royist. Consequently, information about our users, including personal information, will be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business to provide the site, our services or fulfil products, sale or pledge of company assets as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.
1.3 Cookies and Tracking Technologies
We log your IP address in order to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Web site and track usage statistics. Your IP address may vary each time you visit, or it may be the same, depending on whether you access our site through an always-on type of Internet connection (for example, a cable modem or DSL). Either way, it would be extremely difficult for us to identify you through your IP address, and we make no attempt to do so. If you reached our site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another site, then we also log that information. This helps us maximize our Internet exposure, and it helps us understand our users’ interests. All of this information is collected and used only in the aggregate; that is, it is entered into our database, where we can use it to generate overall reports on our visitors, but not individual reports that identify you personally.
We also place a small text file known as a “cookie” on your computer’s hard drive as explained in the following paragraphs.
