Collection and Use of Personal and Demographic Information
We collect personal information when users opt to fill out an e-mail submission form in order to request information or contact someone at Domain. The e-mail submission forms require users to provide us with contact information (such as their name and e-mail address), and in some cases ask for other optional information (such as phone number and contact preferences). We use the contact information from these forms to send the user information
about our company, as well as to contact the user when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the section entitled "Opt-Out" below.
We may also collect demographic and profile data at our site. This data will primarily be used to provide users with requested information. It may also be used to compile usage statistics and other data regarding the use of the Web site services. We will not share your personally identifiable information with third parties, outside of the limited circumstances referenced in the paragraph immediately below. We may, however, share with partners aggregated statistical data that includes users' demographic information but does not identify them. We reserve the right to provide any and all such aggregated and non-individually identifiable data to third parties.
We share customer information only with the subsidiaries The Domain Companies controls and as described below:
* Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include creating and maintaining our Web sites, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
* Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets.
