WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
West Texas, REALTORS may request or collect personal information from visitors to our website in a variety of ways, including through online forms (such as our Contact Us) form and through Google Analytics, which collects demographic information of visitors to our website. The personally identifying data we collect might include and is not limited to:
- Your name
- Your email address
- Your place of employment
- Your job title
- Your location
- Your age
- Your gender
The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure and, therefore, West Texas, REALTORS cannot guarantee the security of the data you transmit to our website; any such transmission is at your own risk.
Like most standard websites, we use log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. However, none of the information stored in our log files, including but not limited to IP addresses, is linked to personally identifiable information.
Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google. Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of West Texas, REALTORS’ website, to prepare reports on its activities and share them with other Google services. Google may use the data collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. West Texas, REALTORS may implement certain tracking features supported by Google Analytics for Display Advertising Demographics and Interest Reporting. The data collected (age and gender) is used to better understand our visitors and help us provide the most relevant content we can. West Texas, REALTORS may also employ Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online. Third-party vendors, including Google, may show our ads on sites across the Internet. West Texas, REALTORS and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our website. You can opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and/or customize Google Display Network ads using the Google Ads Settings or Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. We will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information previously collected from Display Advertising features that are based on the DoubleClick cookie unless you have provided West Texas, REALTORS with prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to such merger.
