Data Collected and Use Thereof
Concrete Stories collects and stores various kinds of "personally identifying information" from users of the Site including monitoring use of the Site through IP addresses, personal information (i.e., individual and company name, address, e-mail), and may in the future collect transactional information (i.e., tours taken, leases executed, etc.), or secure information (i.e., passwords). We also collect "aggregate information" such as Site traffic, page views or impressions. We use this information to do research on our Site and to better serve users of the Site. This information is generally compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. This information may include the referrer, what browser you are using, and your IP address.
In a few instances on the Site, we will also ask you for information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you. Concrete Stories does not collect personal information about you except where you voluntarily submit such information to us, by completing a questionnaire, registration or other similar form. If you decide not to provide this information that personally identifies you, you may still access and use most of the Site. However, you will not be allowed to access areas that require information that personally identifies you.
Concrete Stories requires users to the password-protected areas of our Site to provide us with certain contact information (i.e., name, address, email address and company name) and, in the some cases, certain other more detailed information. We use this information to send correspondence to users about our company, notify users of updated services and offerings, conduct research, product development, marketing, customer service and verification of eligibility requirements. We do not sell, rent or loan any of this information to unaffiliated outside firms. Other than as provided herein, we will not share any personal information gathered from our users to anyone without the userŐs permission unless: (a) we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by law or (b) it is necessary to protect our rights or property.

You agree that Concrete Stories shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of such advertisers or merchants on the Site.
In addition, we may send you information regarding various products or services that may be of interest to you. In any such communication, you will be able to "opt out" so as to not receive any further marketing from Concrete Stories by following the instructions included in the communication.
