We at Charleston Island Builders (CIB) (referred to as “CIB,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of certain information collected about our customers and prospective customers (referred to as “Customers,” “you” or “your”). CIB respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it all times. This privacy statement explains what information we collect, how we use it, how we safeguard it, and how to correct or change it. CIB gathers two types of data about Customers: data obtained through optional, voluntary registration and data CIB gathers through aggregated tracking. This Internet Privacy Statement applies only to information collected by CIB through its web sites.
Browsing the site and IP (Internet Protocol) Addresses
When you are only browsing www.charlestonislandbuilders.com, you are assigned an IP address. An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re using the Internet so that your computer can be identified by the main computers (web servers). CIB collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our site. When customers request pages from CIB, our servers log the customers’ IP addresses. No personal identifiable information (i.e. name, address, phone number and e-mail address) is linked to your IP address or is collected as you browse unless you choose to give it to us.
“Cookies” are small pieces of data stored by your computer to help keep track of your user profile in order to facilitate your use of our website each time you return. Cookies do not tell us your individual identity unless you have chosen to provide it to us. Cookies are used by most major web sites.
Most cookies expire after a defined period of time and can be deleted from your computer at any time. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can set up your computer to choose what cookies to accept. However, if you block cookies, some parts of CIB and/or its affiliates’ services will not function properly or may be considerably slower. For example, without cookies, you will not be able to save previous real estate searches.
You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers. CIB and/or its affiliates do not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.
