Terms & Privacy

 

PRIVACY POLICY STATEMENT:
EFFECTIVE ON MAY 25, 2018.

Boise Regional REALTORS® (“BRR”) is strongly committed to the protection and security of the information provided it by members.

Your privacy and trust are important to us, and we want to take this opportunity to advise you of our practices in regards to the information you provide us by and through this website. The policies in this Privacy Policy Statement (“Statement”) apply only to boirealtors.com.

Our site was created to facilitate the ability to provide information to BRR members, and in some instances, to the public.

WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT:

Generally speaking, this website is informational. To gain access to the members-only resources, members are given a login and password. We do not collect any personally identifiable information from members online unless they voluntarily create a profile or complete an online form. During these processes, we collect contact information such as name, business address, telephone number, and email address.

In addition to the information members voluntarily submit, we may collect your IP (Internet Protocol) address to administer our site and best serve our members. When a web browser or email application requests a web page or email from another computer on the Internet, it automatically gives that computer the address where it should send the information. This is called the computer’s “IP address.” This “address” does not contain any personally identifiable information.

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION:

BRR will not sell, rent, or exchange any data collected through this website from our members except as provided in this Statement. The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and Idaho REALTORS® (IR) have posted their own “privacy policies” and “terms of use” which you can read on their respective websites. Those “privacy policies” and “terms of use” may differ from ours.

We will use your email address to contact you for association business, weekly newsletters, updated information, surveys, or promotions.

Your contact and other information are available to visitors on this website by way of the “Find a REALTOR®” or “Affiliate Service Guide” sections. This service is a member benefit and is made available to further the objectives of promoting our members. Members can deactivate their membership for the purpose of being de-listed from the membership directory by calling 208-376-0363 and ask for Membership department and request that your membership with BRR be inactivated.

NOTE: Inactivation of your membership, even when voluntary, can result in any or all of the following: inability to use the terms “REALTOR®” or “REALTORS®”, inability to use the REALTOR® “R” logo or any logos affiliated with a National Association of REALTORS® designation, loss of reduction in MLS fees, inability to access any forms provided by the state or local association or through the MLS, access to member pricing for any association programs, and limited access or no access to all programs and services reserved for REALTOR® Members of the local, state, and national associations. Further, if you inactivate your membership but continue to hold an active real estate license and maintain affiliation with a Designated REALTOR®, the Designated REALTOR® may still be responsible for dues on your behalf, under Article 10 of BRR’s Bylaws.

We use the REALTOR® Electronic Commerce Network (“E-Commerce Network”) when you make payments by credit card. Credit information that you and credit authorizers provide when you make payments by credit card for products, dues, or services through the E-Commerce Network will be used only to process the transactions you requested. This information will be provided to and maintained by reputable credit reporting databases, but will never be sold, shared, or provided to other third parties. Your credit card statement may reflect the name “Realtor Association/MLS Chicago, IL” as the vendor, and this name will appear on any transactions processed by BRR.

BRR does not retain, share, store, or use this personally identifiable information for any other purposes.

BRR may disclose, transfer, sell, or assign information obtained through this website, or otherwise in its possession, to third parties as a result of a sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization, or liquidation of BRR. You will be notified via email or a prominent notice on this website for thirty (30) calendar days of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

BRR may also make information obtained through this website, or otherwise in its possession, available to law enforcement personnel and agencies when requested to do so or as required by law.

YOU HAVE CHOICES:

BRR offers you the opportunity to correct, update, and amend information by logging into www.boirealtors.com and making changes in the “MEMBER LOGIN” section. This takes you to another website administered by our membership database vendor. This vendor has their own “privacy policies” and “terms of use” that may differ from ours. If you prefer to make changes with an association staff membership, please feel free to notify us by email at info@boirealtors.com or phone at 208-376-0363, and we will make every effort to correct, update, or amend your information.

COOKIE TECHNOLOGY:

Cookie technology may be employed by the website administered by our membership database vendor, and when you access that site with your login and password. “Cookies” are small text files sent by web servers to be stored on the hard drive of website users and help us better serve you. BRR uses “session cookies” that control the current state of the website and contain the information useful only to the computer memory. These files often contain personalization settings or unique identifiers for successful logging into the password-protected part of this website, to keep track of your information and to help us understand the movements of users within and between websites. “Session cookies” do not contain any personal information about you when visiting this website.

DATA SECURITY:

We also want you to know that we take the security of your information very seriously. The website administered by our membership database vendor uses industry accepted tools and procedures that protect the files in our data system and have established an offline privacy policy regarding the membership and other information maintained by BRR, through our membership database vendor. Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) encryption is used to transmit sensitive data such as credit card numbers to the site. You need to be aware that due to the open communication nature of the Internet we cannot guarantee that communication between you and us, and us and you will be free from unauthorized access by third parties, nor can BRR be responsible for members’ information stolen from this website by information harvesting software which may have the ability to scrape data, such as your email address, from the “Find a REALTOR®” or “Affiliate Service Guide” sections of this website.

BRR is not responsible for the availability of or the business and privacy practices of other websites which are linked from boirealtors.com or used to facilitate things such as event registrations, membership surveys, online auctions, etc. We provide these links for information and service. We do not take responsibility for the contents, advertising, products, or other materials made available through any other website nor for their data collection practices. We refer you to their Privacy Statements and Policies to learn how they collect and use information about you.

PRIVACY STATEMENT CHANGES:

BRR reserves the right to change or amend this Statement to address new issues of privacy and information security and to reflect changes to this website or business practices. Any new changes and/or amendments will be posted in this section of this website.

If we make material changes to this policy in how we use your personal information, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our homepage.
