Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This website is owned and operated by CIRCA Old Houses, LLC. We respect your privacy and
understand that you have a right to know why we collect your personal information and what we do with it.
This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect through our Sites (as defined below) as well as
information we may collect offline.

This policy describes the type of information we collect from you and/or that you may provide us when
you visit and/or use this website and/or any of our mobile applications (individually or collectively, “Sites”).
“You/your/user(s)” means you as a user of our Sites.

By accessing the Sites, you acknowledge this Privacy Policy and agree to be bound by the terms hereof,
the Terms of Service, and any other terms or policies we post on the Sites. If there is anything you do not
understand, please email any inquiry to letters@circaoldhouses.com. If at any time you do not agree to
this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Sites or provide us with any personal information.

We reserve the right to change or update this Privacy Policy by posting such changes or updates to the
Sites or emailing you notice of the changes. Amendments to this Privacy Policy will be posted at this URL
and will be effective when posted. You can tell if this Privacy Policy has changed by checking the last
modified date that appears at the end of this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Sites following the
posting of any amendment, modification or change shall constitute your acceptance thereof.


We strive to keep your Personal Information private and safe. We take commercially reasonable physical,
electronic and administrative steps to maintain the security of Personal Information collected, including
limiting the number of people who have physical access to database servers, as well as employing
electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. All
payment transactions will be handled through our third party payment processors, and we will not have
access to your credit card number or other such financial data.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the transmission of data over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to
be 100% secure. While we will use reasonable means to ensure the security of information you transmit
through the Sites, any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We cannot guarantee that
such information will not be intercepted by third parties, and we will not be liable for any breach of the
security of your Personal Information resulting from causes or events that are beyond our control,
including, without limitation, your own act or omission, corruption of storage media, defects in third-party
data security products or services, power failures, natural phenomena, riots, acts of vandalism, hacking,
sabotage, or terrorism, and we are not responsible for unauthorized circumvention of any privacy settings
or security measures contained on the Sites.

we collect Personal Information that you provide to us. Second, we collect certain Automated Information

unavailable or difficult to view or use.

In some of our email messages we may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on our Sites. When
you click one of these URLs, you will pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web
page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the
effectiveness of our Sites. If you prefer not to be tracked through our emails, simply avoid clicking text or
graphic links in the email.


Third parties may also collect information via our Sites through cookies, third party plug-ins and widgets in
order to deliver our targeted advertisements to you across the Internet.
Our web server may collect clickstream information such as the address (or URL) of the website that you
came from before visiting the Sites, which pages you visit on the Sites, which browser you used to view
the Sites, and any search terms you may have entered on our site, among other things. The Sites may
also use other technologies to track which pages our visitors view.


Most commonly we will use your Personal Information in the following circumstances:
● Where you have asked us to do so, or consented to us doing so;
● Where we need to do so in order to perform a contract we have entered into with you;

rights do not override those interests; and

We are committed to maintaining your trust and we want you to understand when and with whom we may
share Personal Information and information collected about you. We do not share your Personal
Information with any third parties except as set forth herein.
We may disclose your Personal Information to outside individuals and/or companies that help us bring

If we seek investors or go through a business transition, including but not limited to, a merger, acquisition
by another company, or a sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information may be shared
as part of the negotiation of the transaction and will likely be among the assets transferred in the event of
a sale or partial sale of our assets.

We may disclose your Personal Information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with law
enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of
the Website, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights or to protect the rights, property or safety of
Users of the Sites or the public.

because we work with third party advertisers to engage in remarketing and retargeting activities. Through
our relationships with these advertisers, we can target messaging to our users by interest-based,
demographic, contextual, and other means. These third party advertisers track your online activities over
time and across websites and mobile applications by collecting information through automated means,

information to show you advertisements that may be tailored to your individual interests. The information


our advertising partners may collect includes data about your visits to websites and mobile applications
that participate in the relevant advertising networks, such as the pages or advertisements you view and
the actions you take on the websites or apps. This data collection takes place both on our Sites and on
third-party websites and mobile applications that participate in the advertising networks. This process also
helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. Some third-party advertising companies may be
advertising networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offer a single location

the other party in writing, including by e-mail, and advise the other party of the dispute in reasonable
detail as well as informing the other party of the remedy being sought. We may send you notices via the
email address or physical address you provide to us, and all notices to us shall be sent to the following
email address: letters@circaoldhouses.com and include the words “DISPUTE NOTICE” in the subject.
The parties shall then make a good faith effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal
means of resolution. In the event that the dispute is not resolved through this procedure, the party raising
the dispute may proceed to mandatory arbitration as set forth below.


YOU HEREBY AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights
under this Privacy Policy, except for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be
determined by a neutral arbitrator, NOT a judge or jury. You agree that any dispute arising out of or
relating to this Privacy Policy, including with respect to the interpretation of any provision of this Privacy
Policy or other agreements between you and us, or concerning the performance or obligations of you and
us, shall be resolved by mandatory and binding arbitration submitted to JAMS in accordance with its
Commercial Arbitration Rules at the request of either us or you pursuant to the following conditions:
● Place of Arbitration Hearings. Unless you elect to conduct the arbitration by telephone or written
submission, an in-person arbitration hearing will conducted at a JAMS facility in your area or at a
JAMS facility in New York, New York.


● Selection of Arbitrator shall be made pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules &
Procedures or JAMS’ Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures, depending on the amount
of the claim as specified herein.

● Conduct of Arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator under
JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures. For claims exceeding $5,000.00, the
arbitration shall be conducted under JAMS’ Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures
Subject to the applicable JAMS procedure, the arbitrator shall allow reasonable discovery in the
forms permitted by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, to the extent consistent with the purpose
of the arbitration. The arbitrator(s) shall have no power or authority to amend or disregard any
provision of this section or any other provision of these Terms of Service, except as necessary to
comply with JAMS’ Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum
Standards of Procedural Fairness. The arbitration hearing shall be commenced promptly and
conducted expeditiously. If more than one day is necessary, the arbitration hearing shall be
conducted on consecutive days unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties.

● Findings and Conclusions. The arbitrator(s) shall, after reaching judgment and award, prepare
and distribute to the parties written findings of fact and conclusions of law relevant to such
judgment and award and containing an opinion setting forth the reasons for the giving or denial of
any award. The award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on the parties, and judgment
thereon may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction.

● Costs and Fees. You will be subject to a filing fee, set by JAMS, to initiate the arbitration. To the
extent permitted by JAMS procedures, each party shall bear its own costs and expenses and an
equal share of the arbitrators’ and administrative fees of arbitration, and we will remain
responsible for its share of costs, expenses and fees plus any costs, expenses and fees required
under JAMS procedures.

● Litigation. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms. Either
party also may, without waiving any remedy under these Terms, seek from any court having

that party, pending the establishment of the arbitral tribunal (or pending the arbitral tribunal’s
determination of the merits of the controversy).

basis and not in any class action, mass action, or on a consolidated or representative basis. You further
agree that the arbitrator shall have no authority to award class-wide relief or to combine or aggregate
similar claims or unrelated transactions. You acknowledge and agree that this agreement specifically
prohibits you from commencing arbitration proceedings as a representative of others. If for any reason a
claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, each party waives any right to a jury trial. Any claim that
all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be
determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
