Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy demonstrates our commitment to the protection of individual privacy. This Policy describes our practices in dealing with the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information when you visit and obtain information for a purchase of a property from www.paradisedevelopments.com or other sites operated by us (the "Site").

PERSONAL INFORMATION

For the purposes of this Policy, “Personal Information” broadly means any information about an identifiable individual. “Non-identifiable Information” means information that cannot be associated with or traced back to specific individuals with any certainty.

COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We collect Personal Information from individuals on a voluntary basis through a number of ways via digital tracking, registration forms and through property transaction documents, both online and offline. The Personal Information includes contact information (such as, name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number), demographic information, household information, preference information and transaction-related information.) We also collect information when you visit our register pages and email signup forms at the Site.

You have the choice whether you wish to supply Personal Information to us. The decision to withhold Personal Information or to object to the use and/or disclosure of Personal Information as provided in this Policy, may, in certain instances, limit your ability to complete purchases of our properties and to have us provide services to you or limit your ability to access or take advantage of certain promotions and features. You may wish to opt-out of receiving certain informational and promotional materials and features from us. Opt-out opportunities are also provided in other circumstances such as in certain promotional mailings.

Your Personal Information is obtained and used only with your consent that may be expressed or implied depending on the circumstance. If you provide Personal Information of another individual, you represent and warrant that you have all necessary authority and have obtained all necessary consents from that person to enable us to collect, use and disclose such Personal Information of such individual for the purposes set out in this Policy.

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION AT THE SITE

WWhen you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, domain name, time zone, operating systems, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about usage statistics, web browsing, history, the individual web pages or properties and services that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

We use cookies to compile aggregate Device Information about the Site traffic and the Site interactions to offer better Site experiences as well as enable social media connectivity through buttons and/or links on the Site to connect to social media networks in various ways.

TEXT/SMS MESSAGE CONSENT AND OPT-OUT

If you choose, you can provide your mobile phone number to receive text message alerts from our Site to receive property, services and/or event information, tips, promotions or features. You agree that by providing your mobile phone number you expressly consent to receive automated marketing text messages from us to the mobile phone number provided. Message and data rates will apply and you should check the rates of your mobile carrier. You can opt out from further text marketing communications by texting STOP to the SMS number used by our marketing company to contact you. We may share your mobile phone number with service providers with whom we contract to assist us with these activities, but we will not share your mobile phone number with third parties for their own marketing purposes without your consent. Text messages are distributed via third party mobile network providers and, therefore, we cannot control certain factors relating to message delivery. Depending on your mobile carrier, it may not be possible to transmit the text message to you successfully; nor is all content available on all carriers. We do not warrant or guarantee availability or performance of this service and do not accept liability for transmission delays or message failures.
