- Interact professionally with us including e-mail, text, and other electronic messages between users and the Site and between users and our real estate investment business (collectively, “Professional Interactions”).
This Privacy Notice does not apply to: (i) information collected by us by any other means, including any other website operated by Montecito or any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries) unless such website specifically incorporates the terms of this Privacy Notice or you are provided with this Privacy Notice at the point of interaction; (ii) any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries), including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or on the Site; (iii) any personal information that you provide to third party websites or services; and (iv) any other publicly available personal information. A link to a third-party website or service does not mean that we endorse that third party, or the quality or accuracy of the information presented on the third party's/parties' website or service.
To the extent permitted by law, your use and continued use of the Site and professional interactions with us demonstrates your acknowledgment and acceptance of the terms stated in this Privacy Notice.
Information We Collect and Why
We collect and process information that you share through the Site. “Personal information” means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, with an individual (e.g., you or a household).
Please note that personal information does not include publicly available information from government records, deidentified or aggregated consumer information and personal information covered by certain sector specific laws such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), or the California Financial Information Act (FIPA).
We may use Google Analytics, Salesforce or other similar technologies (the "Analytics Technologies") to collect and process certain information about you and your use of the Site. The information collected by the Analytics Technologies is statistical data and does not include personal information. We do not manage it or associate it with personal information that we collect in other ways or receive from third parties.
Our web servers and/or the Analytics Technologies may automatically collect and store the following general information about you: the domain from which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the Site; the Site pages that you visit; the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to us; and the type of device, device ID and web browser you use to access the Site. This information is used to help us ensure that the Site functions properly and to improve Site performance and user experience. We may combine the foregoing types of data with data we already have, or data provided by third parties, including third parties from whom we have purchased personal data.
Our web servers and/or Analytics Technologies may also collect Internet protocol addresses (the Internet address of a computer or other electronic device) to track a user's session while the user remains anonymous. We analyze this data for certain trends in statistics, such as which parts of the Site users are visiting and how long they spend there.
Cookies and Other Data Collection Technology
Our Site (and authorized third parties) may also use "cookies" and other technology to collect information about you, your device, such as your IP address, cookie IP, browser used, browser history, search history and information as to how you interact with the Site. This Privacy Notice refers to cookies, web beacons (also known as pixel tags and clear GIFs), and other similar technology as “Data Collection Technology.”
Cookies are a small text file that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer's hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, info on when it expires, and a randomly generated unique identifier. A cookie may also contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using the Services.
Pixels, web beacons, and tags are types of code or transparent graphics that contain a unique identifier. These technologies provide analytical information about the user experience and help us customize our marketing activities. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, pixels, web beacons, and tags are embedded invisibly on web pages.
We and any authorized third parties may use the Data Collection Technology to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services, remember your login details and browsing behavior, improve the Site, provide you with offers that may be of interest, measure the effectiveness of our communications, and/or market our services.
We do not control these third parties' tracking technologies. If you have any questions about targeted content, you should contact the responsible third party directly. For information about how you can opt out of receiving targeted advertising from certain third parties, see the section below “Your Choices Regarding How We Use and Disclose Your Information.”
