Our Privacy Policy was created to help you clearly understand how we collect and use the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site, products and services.

What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit the South Lake Associates website, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly disclose that is collected on an individual basis; and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.

Registration Information
You provide us information about yourself, your firm or company, and your practices when you register to search listings.

Email Information
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.

Website Use Information
Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the websites visited just before and just after our website. We, our advertisers and ad serving companies may also use small pieces of code called “web beacons” or “clear gifs” to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.

How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
In general terms, we employ personal information for administering and expanding our business activities, providing superior customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services and special offers our customers usually find valuable.

What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
As you browse our website, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other home buyers. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from seeing unnecessary advertisements or requiring you to log in more than is necessary for security. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Web site and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our website and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.

Sharing Information with Third Parties
We NEVER enter into alliances, partnerships or other business arrangements with third parties. The only people other than your Agent that might see your information, is the mortgage broker if you request a pre-approval for a mortgage.

Notice of New Services and Changes
Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. As our customer, you will be given the opportunity to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers by sending our website vendor an email request.
