Links to other web sites
Our web site contains links to and from other web sites. Some of which may be in the form of display advertising. We cannot guarantee that web sites other than the Long Realty Companies websites will respect and protect your Personal Information in the same manner that we do. We urge you to go to and read the Privacy Statements of other web sites when you visit them for your own protection. We also are not responsible for the content of websites other than the Long Realty Companies’ websites.
Why we request information about you
The Long Realty Companies offer a variety of programs and services to you from personalized home searches to online mortgage applications. We collect and retain information about you only when we believe it will help us provide you with the services and products that you desire. We do not share this information with anyone outside of our companies, unless there is a specific business reason, such as a mortgage application, credit check, etc.
Personalized Home Search Registration
When you sign up for our personalized home search, we may use that information to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to our web site or new Long Realty Companies products or services.
When you request other information from us through our various order forms, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address and telephone numbers so we can be sure to get in touch with you when and how you ask us to. For instance, when you apply for an online mortgage loan, we need to know your name, social security number, e-mail address, mailing address, income, debt and asset information. This information is necessary to process your mortgage application and to obtain your credit report. We will not obtain your credit report without your authorization, but we cannot approve you for a mortgage loan without it. We can, however, pre-qualify you for a mortgage loan without your credit report.
How we protect your financial information
When you apply for an online mortgage loan, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure socket layer software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. We limit access to your information to employees who have a specific business reason for accessing it.
