Privacy Policy

Century 21 (“Century 21”) operates www.century21paihia.co.nz/ and may operate other websites. It is Century 21’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Century 21 collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Century 21’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Century 21’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Century 21 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Century 21 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.century21paihia.co.nz/ blogs/sites. Century 21 only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Century 21’s websites choose to interact with Century 21 in ways that require Century 21 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Century 21 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at www.century21paihia.co.nz/ to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Century 21 are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Century 21 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Century 21. Century 21 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Century 21 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Century 21 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Century 21 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Century 21 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Century 21’s behalf or to provide services available at Century 21’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Century 21’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Century 21 will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Century 21 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Century 21 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Century 21, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Century 21 website and have supplied your email address, Century 21 may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Century 21 and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Century 21 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
