1) COLLECTING INFORMATION We collect information on our web sites in a variety of ways, depending upon how you use our sites. We collect information that you voluntarily submit to us, and we also gather information anonymously to help us better understand how our sites are being used and how we can better server our customers (including information provided through the use of “cookies”). In addition, “third party” web sites that you can link to from our web site may also collect and use your information. We use this information in a variety of different ways, including:
b) Requesting Information from Genesis. When you request information from Genesis, we send your information (name, address, phone numbers, e-mail address, messages, etc.) to the factory or retailers that service the area where you are planning to build. In addition, one of our factory sales representatives may forward your information to a local independent builder who can sell and install Genesis homes in the area you are planning to build. We may also use that information ourselves to better serve your needs, and we may provide it anonymously and in the aggregate to advertisers or other interested parties. Champion shall not be responsible for the actions of its independently owned retailers. If you feel that one of our retailers is improperly using your information, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
c) Search Criteria; Polling. You may wish to enter search criteria when looking for homes, or homebuilding facilities on our web site. We may store the search criteria you enter in cookies on your computer, or we may anonymously aggregate and compile this information on our own system for our own use. You may also respond to polls that we conduct on our web pages, and we may store those responses anonymously for our use or “tag” you computer so that you can only vote once on a particular question.
d) Automatically Collected Data. Some information about you may be automatically gathered and stored on our system whenever you visit our web sites, including your Internet Protocol address, the kind of internet browser you use, and how you use our site. We may also use this information to measure and report the number of “hits” on our web pages and report this information publicly or privately (without identifying any specific users). We also track traffic patterns throughout our web sites.
