Information we gather

The type of visitor information Careys New Homes collects generally includes a name, work address, telephone numbers, e-mail address and any other relevant contact details which you have communicated to us by whatever means whether by e-mail, through this website or otherwise. We may also collect information about the use of our products and services, any preferences that we are told about, or information that is submitted voluntarily to us, such as requests for further information in a specific area of interest, an on-line survey or registration for a conference or event.

Information may also be indirectly collected through the Careys New Homes Internet access logs or cookies. This occurs automatically when you access pipc.com. This information is used to enhance your visit to our site. It does not personally identify you and we do not collect sensitive information, such as your political or religious beliefs, ethnic background or sexual preference.

Cookies

Cookies are the tools that give websites a sense of memory, allowing them to recognize one user’s computer session from another. For example, this site uses cookies to count the number of visitors to our site. A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk, so that the website can remember which computer you are using to visit the site. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the ‘lifetime’ of the cookie, and a value – usually a randomly generated unique number.

When you visit our site we send you a cookie, which is used in the following ways:

  • to help us recognize your computer as a unique visitor (not just a number); so, if you are requesting publications from various parts of this site, the cookie can memorise your shopping list for you and put it on your order form.
  • to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how visitors use our site, and to help us improve the structure of our site. We cannot identify you personally in this way.

Why Careys New Homes collects information

The personal information that is provided by or obtained from you is used and/or held by us for maintaining our records and in order that we can communicate with you. We need to communicate with you to respond to any requests for information you make and to provide any specific service you request. We may also use the information you provide to send you information which we believe may be useful to you, including newsletters, briefing notes and updates, and invitations to our seminars and other events.
