Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Each time a visitor comes to the website, our web server collects only the visitor's domain name or IP address but not the e-mail address. This information may be consolidated into group data, which may be shared on an aggregated basis with research firms and member Boards and Associations. The shared data will not disclose your identity or personal data and will not enable the recipients to contact you.
The data collected is also used to help CREA analyze the browsing patterns of its visitors in order to improve the content and design of its websites. Personal information will not be sold to any third parties, nor will such information be added to bulk e-mailing lists.
