The PII you provide while on the Citrus Hills websites will be used only for the purpose it was provided.
Personally Identifiable Information
Citrus Hills collects information in a couple of different ways, all explained in more detail below. Information such as domain, IP address, operating system and device information, date and time of visit, content visited or downloaded, etc. are all collected via cookies. However, information such as first and last name, phone number, email address, personal address, price range, time frame to move, as well as personal interests are all collected via user interaction. In other words, you must voluntarily give us this information. This information is not collected automatically. By voluntarily providing your PII, you are giving Citrus Hills your permission to use the information for a specific, stated purpose. This information is provided to Citrus Hills in order for us to provide you with the service you are seeking.
If you choose to provide us with PII on this website, by completing the web form, we will use that information to help us provide you with the information that you are seeking.
Our website allows you to send us email messages. We use the information provided to adequately respond to your inquiry. We only ever send out general information via email. You should keep in mind that email may not necessarily be completely secure against interception. Therefore, you should never send sensitive PII (such as a Social Security number) to us via email. If your email includes sensitive PII in any way, you should send it to us by U.S. mail instead.
