Privacy Policy

The information that the user provides via this Web site, together with information regarding the manner in which the user uses this Web site, will not be processed or disclosed by Appraisal Institute except as permitted by these terms and conditions. By being a user of this Web site, the user agrees that the Appraisal Institute may share with other parties aggregate, individual, and locator information gathered by the Appraisal Institute in the course of the user’s continuing individual use of this Web site.

“Aggregate information” is information that describes the habits, usage patterns and/or demographics of users as a group but does not describe or reveal the identity of any particular user. “Individual information” is information about a user that is presented in a form distinguishable from information relating to other users but not in a form that personally identifies any user or enables the recipient to communicate directly with any user.

“Locator information” consists of a user’s name, e-mail address, physical address and/or other data about the user that enables the recipient to personally identify the user. Any user who does not wish to receive any special offers or communications from the Appraisal Institute directly or on behalf of suppliers, may so notify the Appraisal Institute at the address listed below. (Note that a user’s election not to receive such information will not affect the user’s receipt of offers and communications that were processed prior to the users’ election.)

Locator information and individual information will be processed and stored by the Appraisal Institute in the United States. Users may contact the Appraisal Institute to determine whether such information has been accurately recorded and, if not, to request correction of any inaccuracies in the information recorded by the Appraisal Institute.

The Appraisal Institute reserves the right to change this agreement at any time by revising the terms and conditions herein. Users are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms and conditions. Continued use of this Web site following any such changes shall constitute the user’s acceptance of such changes.

This agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, U.S.A., without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws. User consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in the State of Illinois, U.S.A. in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of this Web site.

Use of this Web site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms and conditions, including without limitation this paragraph. Those who choose to access this site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Appraisal Institute and the user with respect to this Web site and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between the Appraisal Institute and the user with respect to this Web site.
If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained by the Appraisal Institute.
