The Fine Print: Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS Privacy Policy

A look at our policies on the collection of user information.

Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS respects your privacy, and we are constantly evaluating our practices and procedures to protect your personal information. 

Information collection and use     

SanibelRealtors.com and SanibelCaptivaRealtors.org is accessible to everyone, but only Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS members may access certain tools and information. To view that info, members must log in if they wish to visit a password-protected page. We compare your login info to our membership records and the personal profiles. 

We won’t sell, share or rent this information to others, except in the ways outlined below. Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS collects information from our users at several different points on our website in order to verify valid users and is the sole owner of the information collected on this site.

You must be a member of Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS to access certain areas of this website. 

Security

This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When you submit sensitive information through the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When a registration/order form asks you for information such as a credit card number, the information is encrypted before it leaves your device.

If you have questions about security, send an email to [email protected]   

Cookies

A cookie in the Internet world is a piece of data stored on your hard drive that has some connection to a website you visited. It generally contains info about you that makes it easier to visit that site. 

Cookies are pretty standard in the Internet industry, and a huge number of websites use them. Cookies also allow us to track visits to different areas of the site, which lets Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS know which areas of the website we should improve and expand. 

If you don’t like being recognized, however, you can stop accepting cookies by adjusting the settings in your web browser. That will keep your visit anonymous on SanibelRealtors.com and SanibelCaptivaRealtors.org along with other websites. It may limit some of the functionality when you visit SanibelRealtors.com and SanibelCaptivaRealtors.org, though. In addition, third-party vendors produce some website services offered by SanibelRealtors.com and SanibelCaptivaRealtors.org. In those cases, the independent vendors may also place cookies on your hard drive. Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS has no control over these cookies.

Sharing

We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information to third parties, other than with our partners and designated Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS Rewards Partners. We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers, but that info isn’t linked to personal information that can identify you. We could tell another company, for example, that 85 percent of SanibelRealtors.com and SanibelCaptivaRealtors.org visitors took our property insurance survey and here are the results, but we can’t say that you, in particular, clicked on the property insurance survey. Third parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. 

Links

This website contains links to other sites, but Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. If another website asks for personal information, refer to that site’s own privacy policy. Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS privacy policy applies solely to information collected by this website.

Surveys 

Sometimes our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is voluntary, and you may choose not to disclose this information simply by not taking the survey. A survey could ask for information such as a name and address, as well as demographic information, such as your zip code or age. 

Choice/opt-out

Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS members have the opportunity to “opt-out” of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. If you no longer wish to receive a specific email product, such as newsletters or advertising materials, you may opt-out of individual communications by clicking the “Unsubscribe” button at the end of the email. If you need assistance, email us via the Contact Us page.  

Site and service updates 

Some types of email correspondence don’t have opt-out capabilities if you’re a Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS member, such as the occasional notice of a major breaking news event to Florida licensees, emails sent to committee members, and other website and service announcements. 

Correction/updating personal information 

Email addresses, phone numbers and other personal information may be changed or updated by members using the edit option on their page.

Changes in this policy

In the future, Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of REALTORS may need to change this privacy policy to meet the needs of its members; and since we can’t predict the future, we must put this clause into the privacy policy: We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time. Such changes may be made without prior notice but will be explained in this privacy policy. Changes will be effective when posted.
