Because of our commitment to privacy and our understanding of the necessity for confidentiality in buying and selling real estate, Canadian Property Values strives to collect as little personally identifiable information as possible from its users. However, for some of our services, such as making replies, we may need to collect some personally identifiable information from you in order to deliver these services to you and enable others to reply to your inquiry. The types of personal information collected at these pages are described in the sections below.
We request information from you when you fill out our inquiry submission form. You must provide a valid email address so that you can receive responses to your inquiries by our licensed real estate agents. We also collect information regarding the details of your property.
Your email address and other personal information required remain confidential and will not be distributed to any outside parties, except as necessary to process the inquiry through licensed real estate agents.
If you wish to request Listings automatically by Email through one of our agents, we ask for the email address to which you want the new listings delivered and for brief information regarding the types of listings you are interested in receiving. Your email address always remains private and is not sold or supplied to any third parties.
Canadian Property Values does permit its broker members to review our database of the types of listings that are currently sought, and if your Listings-By-Email request matches their criteria, the broker member is able to contact you through our blind email system (in which your identity or email address is not revealed). You may, however, opt to not have your listings preferences disclosed to Canadian Property Values broker members by checking the box on the Listings-By-Email form.
To unsubscribe from our Listings-By-Email, simply go to the Contact US section on the bottom of the site of Canadian Property Values and fill out the required information and in the box marked “comments” simply write "Cancel Inquiry" ((Note that Canadian Property Values may also delete your subscription if your email address no longer functions.) When you unsubscribe, your email address and information preferences are immediately removed from our database.
When you submit an inquiry to Canadian Property Values through our custom forms, your request is sent through our servers to the intended party. We do not sell or distribute to any outside party, any of the information submitted in the inquiry form reply form.
If you send an email to Canadian Property Values, we use your return email address to answer your inquiry or comment. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
On rare occasions, if ever, Canadian Property Values may send registered users an email announcement regarding a change in our service that affects their use of it.
