This AmberCookHomes.com Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use were updated on May 19, 2019.
Your continued use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of the updated policies.

By visiting AmberCookHomes.com or making use of the AmberCookHomes.com Applications (together, the "Sites"), you are accepting the practices outlined in this Privacy Policy and my Terms of Use. Some terms used in this Privacy Policy are defined in my Terms of Use. A term used only here is "cookie." A cookie is a small electronic file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the website again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your computer. Cookies may store user preferences and other information. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some website features may not function properly without cookies.

1. Information Collection, Use, and Opting Out

The types of information I collect depends on your level of engagement with the Sites. The higher the level, the more information I need to provide my services.

A. All AmberCookHomes.com Website and Users of the AmberCookHomes.com Applications -From registered and unregistered users of the Sites, I automatically receive and record information whenever you interact with the Sites. This includes IP address data from my server logs, cookie information, the pages you request, and the URL of the site you came to the Sites from. From all Users of the AmberCookHomes.com Applications ("App Users") I also collect the mobile device ID and your geo-location information so that I can interact with you; I need to know where to direct responsive Application pages and it allows me to provide geo specific information, such as homes for sale near you. Your IP address serves the same function for website Users. App Users can turn off my access to your geo-location by adjusting "location services" within your iOS or Android device settings. Doing this will not effect the performance of the Sites but will reduce search capabilities. I use the information listed above to help diagnose Site problems and performance, analyze trends, customize your experience on the Sites, and administer the Sites.

Cookies and opting out:

B. Registered AmberCookHomes.com Site Users (including Registered App Users) -You must give me your name and email address as a condition when you create your AmberCookHomes.com account. When you give me this information upon request or through my Sites, I will create a AmberCookHomes.com account for you and this Privacy Policy and my Terms of Use apply.

C. Home Tours -When you submit a home tour request, I will ask for your tour date and time preferences, as well as your phone number. I will also ask some questions so that I can verify your identity. When you meet with me at the home, I will ask you to verify your identity, and may even ask for a photo ID. At this point, your relationship with me is not just online.

D. AmberCookHomes.com Clients -When you are getting ready to buy or sell a home and you start working me, you become a AmberCookHomes.com Client. As part of the home purchase or sale process, you will need to provide a lot of information as is customary for a home purchase or sale transaction. This information can include, without limitation, your name, address, phone number, email address, buyer loan pre-approval documentation and seller property information. I ask you, as a buyer, for loan pre-approvals from a mortgage broker or lender to determine which homes are in your price range, and to help you make an offer more quickly when you do find a home. You, as a seller, are legally required to disclose certain information about your property to prospective buyers. Once you sign a Listing Agreement or Buyer Agreement with me, your relationship with AmberCookHomes.com is governed by that agreement, as well as my online Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy.

2. Information Storage

I store all User information on secure servers in multiple locations

3. Information Sharing

I share your information with AmberCookHomes.com personnel in the normal course of business. I will only share your information with third parties if allowed by you, the end user upon arrangement.

5. Email Communications

I communicate with account holders and Clients about their accounts and home tours, searches and sales by email. You may also subscribe to Listing Alert Emails with customized summaries of homes for sale. If you opt-in to also receive marketing email messages, AmberCookHomes.com may send you AmberCookHomes.com-related news, surveys or promotions. If you do not want to receive alerts or marketing email from me, please visit the Email Preferences section of your profile and/or follow the instructions contained in the unwanted email message.
