Any and all personal information that you may willingly provide to the staff of REALTOR® Communication Services, Inc.(a wholly owned subsidiary of State-Wide MLS), via Rhode Island Living, such as your name, postal and e-mail address or telephone number, is private and confidential. Accordingly, the personal information you provide is stored in a secure location, is accessible only by designated staff, and is used only for the purposes for which you provide the information (such as to reply to your request or to handle your complaint). Your information will be kept strictly confidential and will not be sold, reused, rented, loaned, or otherwise disclosed. Furthermore, any information you give to RCS via Rhode Island Living will be held with the utmost care, and will not be used in ways for which you have not consented. A more detailed explanation about how we safeguard your personal information is described below. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Browser information collected on the web site:
RCS analyzes our web site logs to constantly improve the value of the materials available on Rhode Island Living. Our web site logs are not personally identifiable, and we make no attempt to link them with the individuals that actually browse the site. Our computer is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information about its visitors. It does recognize the home server of visitors, but not e-mail addresses. For example, we can tell which Internet Service Provider our visitors use, but not the names, addresses or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our sites. This information is used only for internal purposes by RCS technical support staff. In addition, our web site tracks information about the visits to Rhode Island Living. For example, we compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to our site, the daily requests we receive for particular files on our site, and what countries those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.

What is a cookie? Here is some general information on cookies & how they work:
Some Web sites store information in a small text file, called a "cookie," on your hard disk. Cookies contain information about you and your preferences. For example, if you inquire about a flight schedule at an airline's Web site, the site might create a cookie that contains your itinerary. Or it might only contain a record of which pages within the site you visited, to help the site customize the view for you the next time you visit. Only the information that you provide, or the choices you make while visiting a Web site, can be stored in a cookie. For example, the site cannot determine your e-mail name unless you choose to type it. Allowing a Web site to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer, and only the site that created the cookie can read it.
