PRIVACY POLICY

Washington Fine Properties, LLC, (WFP) promises to protect the personal information given to us by visitors to our website and information included on our electronic mail lists. Any information that you give to WFP will be held with the utmost care and will not be used in any way to which you have not consented.

WFP does not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease personal information collected on our website or included on our e-mail lists to any third party.

Collection and Usage of Personally Identifiable Information
Much of the general information on the WFP web site can be accessed without needing to register or log in, and we therefore collect no information about you whatsoever when you are accessing these generic areas of our web site. You may access our property search system providing access to many properties for sale in DC, MD and VA. No personal information is required to search for homes and view detailed information about those homes for sale.

If you choose to utilize certain features, such as saving favorite homes, saving searches or setting up notification of new listings meeting your search criteria, an account is required. When you create a WFP account, ONLY your name and e-mail address are required. Any additional information you provide is used solely to provide information or services directly to you and is not used by WFP for any other purpose.

When you create an account on wfp.com, you have the option to associate yourself with a licensed WFP sales associate. When you select an associate, that associate will be notified that you have done so, and will be provided with your contact information so that he/she may contact you for follow-up. The agent may also access details about your property search criteria and lists of specific properties you have viewed through the WFP web site. In selecting an associate you agree that your use of the WFP web site does not, in and of itself, create an agency relationship between you and the sales associate, or with Washington Fine Properties, LLC. However, further interactions between you and the sales associate (including contacts via e-mail, phone or in person) may result in establishing an agency relationship under the laws of your state, or the state where the agent is located.

Usage of E-Mail Address
We do not allow the use of your e-mail address by any third party; however, we may from time to time, send you e-mails containing information about WFP services, news and other information. You may opt out of receiving any future e-mails by: clicking the "unsubscribe" link within the e-mail; un-checking the "send me WFP informational e-mails" box in the settings are of your WFP online account; or by sending an e-mail to unsubscribe@wfp.com.

Usage of Mailing Address
We do not allow the use of your mailing address by any third party. We do not require you to provide a mailing address to use the WFP web site or to create an account. However, if you supply your mailing address to request printed information from WFP, we may, from time to time, send you e-mails containing information about WFP services, news and other information. You may opt out of receiving any future mailings by sending an e-mail to that effect to unsubscribe@wfp.com

Collection and Usage of Computer Identifiable Information
For each visitor to our Web site, our Web server automatically recognizes only the consumer's domain name, but not the e-mail address (where possible). The information we collect consists of the following:

  • The domain name (but not the e-mail address of visitors to our Web page).
  • Aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit.
  • User-specific information on what pages consumers access or visit.
  • The e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail.
  • Information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information and/or site registrations.

    The information we collect is used only to improve the content of our Web site and to customize the content and/or layout of our page for each individual visitor.

    Use Of IP Address
    Your IP address is a unique number used to identify your specific computer on a public network. WFP may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, such as diagnosing problems with our server, to analyze consumer behavior and trends, and to audit the use of our site. IP addresses are not used to personally identify a customer and are kept anonymous. WFP may use IP addresses to identify a customer when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our site terms of use or terms of service, or to protect our service, our site, customers, or others.

    Use Of Cookies
    WFP may use "cookies" to track web site visitors. Cookies are small amounts of data that the visitor retains on their computer, which enable the visitor to go back to saved information from a previous visit. They are also used to tailor the navigation of the web site to be consistent with the visitor's preferences and to enable them to see their sales agent's contact information in some cases as they work their way through the web site. Cookies make web surfing easier for you by saving your preferences so that we can use the saved information to facilitate your use of our web site when you return to the web site. Cookies do not tell us your individual identity unless you have chosen to provide it to us. We never save passwords or credit card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and as such, you will find that most major web sites use them. By showing how and when users use the web site, cookies help us see which areas of the web site are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the web site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies.

    Most cookies expire after a defined period of time, or you can delete your cookie file at any time. Most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your web browser to refuse cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of the WFP web site will not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies.

    Please be aware that when you click on links that take you to third-party web sites, you will be subject to their respective privacy policies. While WFP supports the protection of privacy on the Internet, WFP cannot be responsible for the actions of third parties. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement whenever interacting with any web site.

    Data Security
    We always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site.

    Legal Disclosure
    WFP may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating WFP's terms of use or terms of service, or may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with any of WFP's rights or property, other WFP customers, or anyone else. WFP may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.

    International Information Transfers
    Any personally identifiable information that you provide to WFP will be collected directly on servers located in the United States and maintained on servers located in the United States. If you are located outside the United States, this means that any information you provide will be transferred abroad. While WFP is committed to providing your information with the highest level of privacy protection, we believe you should know that the general level of protection for personal information in the United States may not be the same as that provided in other countries, including those that belong to the European Economic Area.
