What personal information is collected?
Mays only collects personal information on a voluntary basis. If an on-line visitor submits information to Mays, it will usually take the form of either: (1) the purchase of goods or services though our on-line store, (2) e-Newsletter registration, (3) competitions, and (4) surveys. Personal information collected may include your name, home address, and e-mail address. We do not require this information to gain access to our sites, however, you will not be able to utilise certain features that require registration or receive materials such as newsletters unless such information is provided.
Visitors purchasing products or services through our on-line store will be required to provide additional information such as a valid credit card number, expiration date, and shipping and billing addresses.
What other types of information may we collect?
For some activities, we may ask you to create a username and password. In addition, your web browser or client software may transmit certain geographic information or information regarding the capabilities of your computer to Mays. Mays may use this information to generate aggregate statistics about our user community and may provide such information to advertisers and/or our partners. In addition, Mays may use such information for security or enforcement purposes.
How do we use your personal information?
The personal information you provide Mays will allow us to fulfill the purpose it was provided for; alert you of new products or services, features, or enhancements; handle/route your customer service questions or issues; and/or notify you of upgrade opportunities, competitions, promotions, or special events and offers. Lastly, we may use your personal information for internal marketing, profiling, or demographic purposes, so we can adapt our products and services to better suit your needs. We do this to better understand and serve our customers.
Who is collecting your information?
When you are asked for information while on the Mays site, you are sharing that information with Mays.
With whom may your personal information be shared?
Mays may need to disclose your personal information to third party vendors to fulfill product orders or prizes, to process mailings, or to process, analyze, and/or store data. We will attempt to ensure that these entities do not use your personal information for any other purpose, and that they have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us. We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against you if you are violating the Terms of Service or Use Agreements for a Mays site or product, or may be causing injury to or interference (intentionally or unintentionally) with Mays rights or property, other users of a Mays site or product, or anyone else who could be harmed by your activities.
As with any business, your personal information is also an asset of Mays and will become part of our normal business records. We will not sell your personal data to any third party. Similarly, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, your personal information may be transferred to Mays's successor or assign.
Mays sites may also have message boards, comment facilities, and/or chat areas, where users can exchange ideas and communicate with one another. When posting to a message board or chat area, please be aware that the information is being made publicly available on-line and the user does so at his or her own risk.
What choices do you have regarding the collection, use, and distribution of your personal information?
Mays attempts to allow you to control the way that we use personally identifiable information that we might obtain. At the time you provide personal information, Mays may give you the option of declining any future offers or information about new products, promotions, or services. In addition, many of the mailings Mays may send you, such as newsletters, have procedures within them to cancel the receipt of any future mailings.
If at any time you wish to opt out of receiving information from Mays (via email or postal mail) about new products, services, or promotions, you can do so. You may contact us at Mays Estate Agents, 290 Sandbanks Road, Poole, BH14 8HX. You can also contact us by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate what publications or services you no longer wish to receive so that we may better address your needs.

What to do if you want to correct or delete your personal information?
How secure is your personal information?
While Mays takes reasonable steps to secure your personal information, no system is fault proof. If Mays's security systems are breached Mays may attempt to notify you electronically and, by using the Service and/or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can notify you electronically. Mays may post a notice on the Mays Web Site if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a web browser enabling you to view the Mays Web Site. Mays may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us at email@example.com. If your email address changes and you have provided Mays with personal information, you should notify Mays at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can communicate with you if necessary.
