Legal & Privacy Policy

Welcome to our website ("Site"). Buckingham Companies ("Buckingham") has created this notice to ensure that you understand our privacy policies and procedures, what personal information you must provide if you wish to use the Site and, ultimately, to ensure you understand how we use personal information.

Information Collected by Buckingham

Buckingham may collect and store personally identifiable information about persons who visit this Site and voluntarily submit information to Buckingham. Information obtained in connection with the Site may be intermingled with and used by us in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than the Site, including both offline and online sources.

How We Use Your Personal Information

Buckingham receives and stores the personal information you enter on our website or give us in other ways. We use this information to respond to requests, process rent payments or applications and to communicate with you regarding our properties and services or those of third parties. We do not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties or mass marketers. Unless you consent to the disclosure of your personally identifiable information, only we and our staff, respective affiliates, technical consultants, third party auditors and other third parties who make our Site available, enhance its functionality, or provide associated services have access to this information and they are covered by this policy. Please note that we do reserve the right to transfer your personally identifiable information and other information to our successors in business and purchasers of site assets.

Non-Personal Data

In some cases, we may collect non-personal information, such as the type of internet browser you use, the type of computer operating system, software and peripherals you use and the domain name of the web site from which you access our Site. We use this information on an aggregated basis to operate and enhance our website and improve its usability. We may share non-personal information with third parties for advertising, promotional and/or other purposes.

Cookies

We reserve the right to utilize cookie technology. A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain various types of information, including a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you have visited. We may use cookies to enhance your experience on this Site, to determine user traffic patterns and for other purposes.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies; however, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent or you can flush your browser of cookies from time to time. (Note: you may need to consult the help area of your browser application for instructions.) If you choose to disable your cookies setting or refuse to accept a cookie, however, you will not be able to access the Site with the use of your password.

Clickstream

As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each website you visit. This information, sometimes referred to as "clickstream data," can be collected and stored by a web site's server. Clickstream data can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the web site from which you linked to the Site. We may collect and use clickstream data as a form of aggregate information to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Site, how visitors navigate throughout the Site and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of tenants and visitors. This information will be used to improve our Site and our services. Any collection or use of clickstream data will be anonymous and aggregate, and will not intentionally contain any personal information.

Security

We are committed to taking reasonable steps to ensure the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put into place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and us or information stored on the Site or our servers, will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of the Site demonstrates your assumption of this risk. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. You also need to protect your security by guarding against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
