This Privacy Policy describes how we handle your personal information for our services available through www.MeridinREGroup.com (the "Site"). By accepting the Privacy Policy, you expressly consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is effective upon acceptance for new users and is otherwise effective beginning 30 days after first posted on the Site.

At Meridian Real Estate Group, we adhere to a philosophy of integrity, trust, and mutual respect among all parties involved with the real estate transaction. We understand that the privacy and security of information that personally identifies you is important to you. Therefore, Meridian Real Estate Group has created this Privacy Policy in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to ensure the protection of your information that is collected by us on this Site and through off-line communications with you, including telephone conversations and in-person communications.

Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be used while you take advantage of the services we offer. This policy may change from time to time as new features are added to the Site and as we incorporate suggestions from our users. We will post an amended Privacy Policy prominently on the Site so that you can always review what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we disclose it to anyone. Please check the Site at any time for the most recent version of our Privacy Policy. We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time on the Site. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Our Privacy Policy discloses the following information:

  1. What personal information is collected and how it is used
  2. What general information is collected and how it is used
  3. With whom personally identifiable information is shared
  4. User choices regarding collection and use of information
  5. Security measures used to protect personal information

What personal information is collected and how it is used Meridian Real Estate Group collects personally identifiable information from you in order to respond to your requests for our products and services. Depending on the services you request, this information may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, ZIP Code, email address, telephone number, whether you plan on buying, selling or both buying and selling property, information about the properties in which you are interested and your home search criteria. If you are seeking to buy or sell a property with another person, we will collect much of the same information about them as well.

What general information is collected and how it is used

When you visit Meridian Real Estate Group, our computer system, like most, will automatically log some basic information about you and your computer, including, but not limited to, your IP address, operating system and browser software. We use this information for routine maintenance and to gather broad demographic information to help us decide how better to implement our Site.

With whom personal information is shared

We recognize that the information we collect from you may, in itself, or when tied together with other information, identify you as a specific individual. Your account information and personal data is maintained by Meridian Real Estate Group in order to fulfill our legal and regulatory requirements and to provide you with the information, products and services you have requested or which we believe you may want in connection with your home ownership. As a general rule, Meridian Real Estate Group will not disclose your personal information to any third party except with your permission or under special circumstances where your personally identifiable information is protected, as discussed below.

By requesting information or services from Meridian Real Estate Group or other companies specified by you, you give Meridian Real Estate Group permission to transfer your information, as necessary, to the appropriate parties, such as the title insurer, homeowners insurer, lender, appraiser, escrow or settlement provider, home warranty company or inspector you select, so that they can fulfill your request and provide you with the services you require. You information may also be transmitted to other parties in a transaction or their agent. Our Agents are employees of Meridian Real Estate Group. All personally identifiable information you provide to Meridian Real Estate Group will be made available to your Agent and other Meridian Real Estate Group employees with a need for the information. Generally, your Agent will coordinate the disclosure of your information to third parties. This will be done in much the same way as a traditional real estate agent shares information with third parties. For example, your Agent may disclose your name and the address of the property you want to purchase to a building inspector when you request our assistance in arranging an inspection of the property.

The various lending institutions, title companies, homeowners insurers, home warranty companies and other service providers you choose for your real estate transaction may each have their own privacy policies governing how they handle your personally identifiable information. Meridian Real Estate Group accepts no responsibility or liability for third party privacy policies or the actions of any third party with respect to your personally identifiable information.

Meridian Real Estate Group may disclose personally identifiable information in certain circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to contact, identify or bring legal action against someone who may be intentionally or unintentionally causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, our users, our employees or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose personally identifiable information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative or other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain and improve our products and services. We may disclose personally identifiable information to a multiple listing service which provides us with listing data if, the multiple listing service suspects that a person is involved in breach of security of the data or a violation of our Terms of Use or the multiple listing service's rules. Additionally, we may disclose personally identifiable information in response to a valid subpoena or court order.

Our Site provides links to other web sites. Please be aware that when you click on one of these links, you are going to another web site even though the Meridian Real Estate Group logo, banner, or tool bar may still be visible. Information you enter on these other web sites is being collected by that site, not Meridian Real Estate Group. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites as their privacy policy may differ from ours.

Security measures used to protect personally identifiable information

Email is an important communication channel for our online customers. Email sent to our Agents, Buyers or Sellers are carefully routed to the intended party. Unfortunately, no email transmission over the Internet is guaranteed secure. While we strive to protect your information, Meridian Real Estate Group cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us from our Site, and you do so at your own risk.
