When you visit the Site, Takao Home Team, through its technology providers, Placester, Inc. (“Placester”) and Google LLC (“Google”), collect information about you and your browsing habits. The information we collect depends on the pages of our website you visit and what you do during your visit.

Several companies offer tools that allow people to browse the web anonymously. We cannot provide you a personalized experience if you use these tools, because we cannot recognize you and your computer. However, we want to ensure you know of their existence. Because Takao Home Team does not track your online activities over time and across third party websites in order to provide targeted advertising, Takao Home Team does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
For most of the browsing services on the Site, Takao Home Team does not require your personal information. There are portions of the Site where you will be given the option to provide information about you. The information that you may be asked to provide may include your name, email address, telephone number, and address. Depending on your request and other circumstances, other information may also be collected. It is your discretion and determination whether to provide such information. If you use the Site to inquire about a property or contact a real estate agent, broker, or office, the information you have provided may be shared with a Takao Home Team real estate agent, broker, or market center. Additionally, when you use the Site to search for a property, you may be directed to a website operated by a Takao Home Team franchisee and we may provide that Takao Home Team office or real estate agent with the information you have provided (e.g. your contact information as provided by you or the parameters of your search) in addition to information automatically collected about you (e.g. your browser type or operating system version).
