1. The Information RED Collects
User Provided Information: You may provide certain personally identifiable information (such as your name, email address, payment information, contact information and other information required to create and manage your account) to RED when licensing a .REALTOR domain name or choosing to participate in various activities on the Website.
Log File Information: When you use the Website, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
2. The Way RED Uses Information
If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the Website, then we may use your personally identifiable information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Website, including, when applicable, sending you information.
We will not share, sell, or trade your email addresses, except potentially with the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), entities related to NAR (such as the Canadian Real Estate Association ["CREA"]), and ICANN-accredited domain registrars. We (and these entities) may use your email address to directly send you information and may provide you with online informational or marketing messages that have been approved by us together with other communications to which you have subscribed.
If you license a domain name from RED, certain elements of your personally identifying information (such as your name, address, telephone number and email address) will be accessible to the public via ICANN-required "WHOIS" searches; for example, such information may be used to populate the administrative, technical and/or billing contact WHOIS fields. Third parties have been known to access WHOIS information for the purpose of gathering contact information for disseminating marketing and advertising materials. RED is not liable for any communications received as a result of such access of the WHOIS information for any .REALTOR domain name.
3. When RED Discloses Information
We may release information we collect, including personally identifiable information, if required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant.
We also reserve the right to disclose information we collect, including personally identifiable information, that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use, Acceptable Use Policy and Takedown Procedures; take precautions against liability; investigate and defend RED against any third party claims or allegations; assist government enforcement agencies (including ICANN); protect the security or integrity of our Website; and protect the rights, property, or personal safety of RED, our users or others.
We may also disclose the information we collect, including personally identifiable information, with any sponsors of promotions or contests available through this Website. If information about you will be shared with a sponsor, you will be notified prior to your participation in the promotion or contest so you can decide not to participate in the promotion or contest.

5. Service Providers
We use a credit card processing company to bill users for services. Credit card information that you or authorized persons provide when you make any payment by credit card via this Website will only be used to process the transaction(s) you request. The credit card processing company will not otherwise retain, share, or store any credit card information provided during payment. If you would like to know more about privacy policies of our credit card processing company, you may e-mail us at info@red.REALTOR.
RED uses industry standard efforts to make sure all information received from online visitors is secure from unauthorized access and use. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place the appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information collected.
You should keep in mind, however, that no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure and any information disclosed online can potentially be collected and used by parties other than the intended recipient.
