Email Reply Mechanisms
This Site may provide you with one or more email reply mechanisms through which you may submit questions or comments. Information you provide via such email reply mechanisms is typically optional. We may use the information you provide in your email to respond to your inquiry, and we reserve the right to retain whatever information you submit in your email, including your name, email address, and any comments or other information that you send via the email reply mechanism, in order to better serve you should you contact us again.
This Site may offer search functions, calculators, or conversion tools that help you learn more about various topics. We use the information you input while using these functions to provide you with immediate feedback. Unless we tell you otherwise at the collection point, we don’t store any of the information you enter.
This Site uses various technologies to passively collect information from you while you are visiting (that is, you do not actively provide this information). Such technologies allow the Site to collect a range of non-personally identifiable information, including, without limitation, your Internet Protocol (IP) address (a unique identifier automatically assigned to your computer when logging onto the Internet), the type of Web browser and operating system you use, the date and time you visit the Site, the specific pages you visit on the Site, and the address of the website you visited before coming to this Site or go to after visiting this Site. We typically use such passively collected information for a variety of purposes, such as to administer the Site, customize the Site to your preferences, and compile aggregated statistics for marketing and research purposes. We do not correlate any personally identifiable information with the passively collected information that we collect on the Site. We reserve the unrestricted right to use and disclose this passively collected, non-personally identifiable information.
Passive information collection technologies that deserve special mention:
Cookies are small files stored on your computer’s hard drive that are used to collect your personal information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, some of the functionality of the website may no longer be available to you.
Web beacons (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are internet tags that are smaller than cookies and tell the website server your IP address and browser type and help us to identify what pages you use on the Site.
Disclosures of Personal Information
We reserve the right to disclose personal information to our service providers, the government, law enforcement agencies, or other third parties under certain circumstances where a formal request has been made (such as in responding to a court order, subpoena, or judicial proceeding) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary and appropriate to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request, in our sole and absolute discretion. Moreover, in the event of a sale, merger, or transfer of some or all of Realty Income’s assets, or dissolution or bankruptcy, your personal information may be transferred to an unaffiliated third party as part of or apart from other transferred assets or assets. Any transfer will then be governed by and be the responsibility of any purchaser of or successor to the transferred assets or acquired business.
Confidentiality & Security
We take the protection of your personal information very seriously. We use technology tools and design our business practices to help ensure that the personal information of our customers is properly gathered, stored, and processed. We secure your personal information submitted by you by using reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, or accidental loss or destruction. We also work to maintain the security of, and internal and external access to, the personal information of our customers through the use of technology and our business practices. For example, we limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information in order to do their jobs. However, there are no guarantees that unauthorized access will not occur. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot absolutely ensure the security of any personal information that you transmit to us and you acknowledge this in your access and use of our website.
