Privacy Policy

Effective: July 2020

We are pleased that you have elected to visit the website, www.eastdilsecured.com (the “Website” or the “Site”), which is operated by Eastdil Secured LLC (“Eastdil” “us” and “we”). Eastdil is a market-leading commercial real estate brokerage firm that offers its clients guidance and connectivity between the largest and most active real estate owners, operators, investors, and lenders in the world. The Website describes our products, services, markets, and locations.

Eastdil respects privacy rights and is committed to safeguarding the Personal Information entrusted to us by our clients and visitors to our Site. Eastdil has implemented this Privacy Policy to govern the use of Personal Information that we collect through the Website, including Personal Information you send to us. This Privacy Policy does not govern Personal Information collected from any other source or in any other manner. This Privacy Policy is intended to provide you with information as to: (i) the type of information that is collected, (ii) how the collected information is used and with whom it is shared; (iii) how we intend to protect the information; and (iv) how you can access such information and have it modified and/or removed.

This Privacy Policy may be changed from time to time, and we reserve the right to make changes without prior individual notice. Such changes are effective upon publication of the revised Privacy Policy. Please review this Privacy Policy often so that you will remain abreast of Eastdil's current policies, including its policies concerning the gathering and use of information that may be collected on our Site. You are responsible for making sure you are aware of the provisions of Eastdil's most current Privacy Policy. You can tell when the Privacy Policy was last modified by checking the “updated” date.

California Privacy Rights. Under California law, California residents who have provided personally identifiable information to a company may have the right to request the categories of Personal Information and the specific pieces of personal information that the company has collected from you. California residents also may have the right to request a list of all third parties to whom that company has disclosed and/or sold such information for the third parties’ business purposes during the preceding calendar year, along with a list of the categories of Personal Information that has been so disclosed and/or sold.

Eastdil does not at this time collect Personal Information other than internet and electronic activity information such as IP addresses through the Website, and does not use that Personal Information for any marketing or commercial purpose and does not share, sell, or disclose that Personal Information with any third party. Notwithstanding the above, if you are a California resident who would like information on how to exercise your rights concerning third party disclosures under California law, you may call Eastdil at its toll-free number: 888-732-2278. For avoidance of doubt, this provision is made applicable to all users of the Website who want to request information about Eastdil’s use of their Personal Information, whether such user resides in California.

Collection and Use of Information

Personal Information

Personal Information is information that uniquely identifies you, such as your name, address, email address, and telephone number. Eastdil does not currently collect Personal Information other than internet and electronic activity information such as IP addresses through the Website.

Financial Information

Eastdil does not collect any financial information through its Website.

IP Address

An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your internet service provider when you log on. Your IP address is not linked to your Personal Information but Eastdil does reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten the Site or other users or visitors. IP addresses may also be used to help diagnose problems with the Site and to gather broad demographic information. The information we collect in this manner is usually anonymized, and we will not identify you from this data, subject to a need to do so to protect the Site and/or other users.

Other Information

When you access the Website, Eastdil will automatically receive some information about your use of the service. The type of information that is automatically collected by Eastdil includes such things as the date and time of access of the Website, the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer that you are using, the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your browser software and operating system, the referring website address, and the specific activities you are engaged in while visiting the Site (collectively, “network activity data” or “automatic tracking information”). This aggregate tracking information is used to help Eastdil improve and enhance the website experience for all its visitors. The information we collect in this manner is usually anonymized, and we will not identify you from this data, subject to a need to do so to protect the Site and/or other users.

Your Consent

In the future, if Eastdil begins to collect Personal Information other than network activity data, you will be notified of such changes in this Privacy Policy. In any event, if the nature of the Personal Information Eastdil collects changes, we will only collect, use and/or disclose such Personal Information with your consent, and will request your consent to use your Personal Information for a particular purpose when we collect such information.

You must be 18 years of age and a resident of the United States to use this Site. Eastdil does not knowingly collect or maintain any Personal Information from children under the age of 13, and no part of any of the Site is designed with the purpose of attracting such children.

Use of Your Personal Information

We do not use the Personal Information we currently collect for any commercial purpose. To the extent network activity data is used, it is used only as set forth in this Policy.

If you contact Eastdil via direct postal mail and/or by telephone with a request and/or regarding your relationship with Eastdil, we will contact you, if requested, using the contact information you provide at the time. Any contact information provided to Eastdil at that time will be maintained and used only with your consent.

Opting in and opting out of electronic communications. If you receive electronic communications, such as emails, from Eastdil at any time, you can opt-out of receiving future electronic communications by (i) calling us at 888-732-2278 or (ii) clicking on the “opt-out” or “unsubscribe” link in any electronic communication you receive.

Do Not Track Signals. Certain web browsers provide users with an option by which you may have your browser send a “Do Not Track” signal to the website that you are visiting, advising the recipient website that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. However, the way browsers communicate such “Do Not Track” signals are not yet uniform and accordingly, our Site does not take any action in response to such signals. In the event a final standard is developed and accepted, we may reassess how we should respond to such signals.

Use of Your Personal Information Within Eastdil. Eastdil may share your Personal Information with our affiliates, which are companies controlled or owned by us, or companies that control us, or are under common control with us (“Affiliates”) without your express consent to comply with applicable laws and regulations.  The Site is intended for users in the United States and its territories and possessions, but if you use the Site from any country outside the United States, the various communications will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries, and by visiting the Site, you consent to these transfers as required or permitted by applicable law. We will not share your Personal Information with unaffiliated third parties, except as stated in this Privacy Policy, without your consent. Your Personal Information will be stored on servers located in the United States.

Use of Your Personal Information by Our Service Providers. From time to time, we may hire third parties to assist us with certain functions and services, such as data processing, computer software and website maintenance and development, transaction processing, promotional and marketing services, customer service, professional, legal or accounting services and/or business and sales analysis. Eastdil may share your Personal Information, without restriction (and regardless of whether you have chosen to limit our sharing of your Personal Information as collected on the Website), with such companies that we hire to perform services for us. In such situations, Eastdil requires that these companies agree to maintain the confidentiality of your Personal Information and to comply with the safeguards described in this Privacy Policy. These companies have access to the Personal Information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes. Furthermore, in compliance with privacy laws, we also provide our opt-out lists to non-affiliated third party companies so that communications sent by those companies on Eastdil's behalf do not get sent to addresses appearing on our opt-out lists.

If Eastdil changes ownership. We may also share your Personal Information as required to allow for a change in ownership of Eastdil and/or any of Eastdil Affiliates and/or of any business(es) to which the Site relate, and the related transfer of user information to the new owner. In the event of any such change of ownership, your Personal Information will continue to be protected by the terms of this Privacy Policy unless and until you are notified of a change.

Lawful Access, Legal Action, and Investigations. Your Personal Information may be disclosed to non-affiliated third parties as either required by, or to comply with, applicable laws and regulations. We may disclose Personal Information if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities or fraud, situations involving the physical safety of any person, violations of our Privacy Policy, or otherwise in accordance with applicable law. For example, Eastdil may disclose your Personal Information to comply with investigations by regulatory authorities or enforcement agencies in the United States of America or elsewhere, or to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud. Furthermore, Eastdil may disclose your Personal Information if it has a reasonable good faith basis to believe that it is required to do so by law, compelled by court order or legal process, or is reasonably necessary and/or appropriate to: (i) protect the rights, property and/or safety of Eastdil or any other person or entity; or (ii) prevent or take action concerning any alleged: (a) illegal activity or (b) breach of the Privacy Policy of the Website.

Use of Cookies. The Site may make use of “cookies” - small data files that can be used by the website to make a user’s experience more secure and to analyze traffic to the site.

We use cookies for the following purposes:

  • Necessary:  Cookies required to access secure areas of the website and to provide important platform notifications.  The site cannot function properly without these cookies.

However, we may disclose aggregated statistics about visitors to the Site, along with anonymous information concerning individual users of the Site. We may combine anonymous information and/or aggregate information we collect with additional anonymous and/or aggregate information collected from other sources. We may share anonymous information (including aggregate information) we collect regarding our users with third parties (such as advisors, and/or consultants) for various business purposes including conducting general business analysis and developing website content and services.
