In addition to improving the general layout of the website, Cookies allow us to customize our website to each visitor’s individual preferences. Although most web browsers automatically accept Cookies, you can usually change your browser to prevent you from receiving Cookies or to notify you whenever you are sent a Cookie so that you may decide whether or not to accept it.

Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

In certain portions of the New Amherst Homes website, certain Personal Information may be voluntarily and knowingly provided to us by visitors to the New Amherst Homes website. When entering a customer service request or requesting information to be sent to you, for example, we will ask you for your name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, as well as certain other information.

New Amherst Homes shall only collect Personal Information of visitors to the New Amherst Homes website with prior notification and shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information. If you do not want us to have access to your Personal Information, please do not provide it while using this site. When you do provide Personal Information, you are authorizing us to use it in accordance with the terms of the Privacy Policy and any other applicable terms, including your right to limit our use of the Personal Information (see Who to Contact” below).

New Amherst Homes may use Personal Information for editorial, feedback or other fully disclosed purposes, such as to respond by e-mail to an inquiry that you posed on-line, to the extent such use by New Amherst Homes is explained to visitors when the information is voluntarily and knowingly provided to New Amherst Homes. We may also match your Personal Information that you provide to us on this website to information contained in our database. Your Personal Information may also be used by New Amherst Homes, or any other division of New Amherst Homes, to contact you regarding other products or services which may be of interest to you (including those that we may offer jointly with other companies).

We will not give, sell, rent, or loan any of your Personal Information to any third party (with the exception of third parties performing functions on our behalf who have an obligation to keep your information completely confidential or a third party who buys our business) unless you have authorized us to do so.

New Amherst Homes reserves the right to access and/or disclose Personal Information where required to comply with applicable laws or lawful government requests or, in New Amherst Homes’ reasonable opinion, to operate the New Amherst Homes website properly and securely, or to protect New Amherst Homes or visitors to this website. New Amherst Homes, acting reasonably, shall attempt to obtain the prior consent of the individual to whom such Personal Information relates prior to disclosure to third parties. Your Personal Information may be stored on servers hosted in the United States or otherwise outside of Canada.

A Note to Parents

New Amherst Homes is very sensitive to privacy issues and is committed to protecting the on-line privacy of children and making the Internet safe for our users. As a result, no Personal Information should be submitted to or posted on this site by children under the age of 13 without their parent’s or guardian’s permission. In addition, if a user younger than 13 wishes to send us Personal Information, he or she must first give us his or her parent’s or guardian’s e-mail address so that we can obtain their permission, or have the child’s parent or guardian consent on his or her behalf. No Personal Information will knowingly be accepted from a child under 13 before this permission is obtained. Be assured that New Amherst Homes will not condition a child’s participation in any website activity on the child’s disclosure of more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity.

If your child has already provided us with Personal Information, you may ask to see this information for the purpose of correcting it, or ask us to delete this information from our records entirely (see Who to Contact” below.)
