WHAT ARE COOKIES?
HOW DO WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM COOKIES?
WE DO NOT USE DYNAMIC ADS?
We do not utilize retargeting ads on this site. We do however display homes recently viewed in order to enhance the user experience.
Dynamic Ads are ads that are personalized in real-time to the user. Unlike static ads that show the same content on every impression, Dynamic Ads enable the advertiser to display a unique creative for different users. Dynamic Ads are the only feasible way to scale up the number of creatives per campaign and to personalize them on each impression.
WHAT IS RETARGETING?
The main goal of ReTargeting Ads is to re-engage site visitors after they have left the site. Dynamic ReTargeting Ads are generated based on the actual products or offers viewed on the advertiser’s site. For example if you’ve visited a retailer’s website and viewed a specific product, you might receive a banner ad containing that product.
HOW CAN I REMOVE MYSELF FROM BEING RETARGETED?
IREALTY does not do any retargeting however if you’d like us to delete your home search account you should simply send an email to [email protected]

WHAT ABOUT LEGALLY COMPELLED DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.
