Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

This data is collected by 3rd party app such as Google Analytics and Facebook. Google’s privacy policy can be obtained here. Facebook’s privacy policy can be obtained here.

Who we share your data with

Our website is a combination of services generated to provide you with all the information it contains. We do not operate in a vacuum so third party services (other companies) are used to bring you a complete website. The third party services such as from Google, Facebook, WordPress, MLS, CREA, REBGV, FVBRE, REALTORS.ca etc. collect usage data from you. We do not store these data for third party providers thus the privacy control is with the third party providers.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

For users that enter and send via contact form, or email, or text, the agent and the brokerage could elect to retain your information until the users give express request to delete the said information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

User’s contact send expressively by the user is to be kept by the website.

Additional information

Contact the webmaster or the site owner for any questions. 

How we protect your data

All backend access points are protected by unique usernames and passwords. Our server is protected by network enabled firewalls. 
  • We take reasonable steps to protect information from unauthorized access or disclosure in a manner commensurate with its sensitivity, value and criticality. This applies regardless of the media on which the information is stored, the location where the information is stored, the systems used to process the information or the processes by which information is handled.
  • The measures used to protect personal information include physical measures (e.g. locked filing cabinets), organizational measures (e.g. information is available to other persons only on a need-to-know-basis) and technological measures (e.g. computer passwords).
  • While we put in place reasonable precautions, we cannot guarantee at all times the security of the information. No method of transmitting or storing data is completely secure, particularly with regard to Internet applications.

What data breach procedures we have in place


We have an obligation to tell you if there are any risks to you that could result if someone (not us!) misuses the personal information you provide us. Honestly, we’ve struggled what to say here as most of the information we collect is not particularly sensitive.

One thing we wanted to flag, however, is that whenever you share your email with another person using our websites, there is a risk that other person could misuse that email. We’ve taken legal (e.g. terms of use), technological (e.g. anti-spam filters and CAPTCHA technology) and design (e.g. designing our systems to reduce the likelihood of your email being misused) measures to try to limit such abuse, but no system is perfect. Please feel free to report any potential abuse to us.

Also, keep in mind that when you provide your personal information to a REALTOR® (for example to, advertise your listing), the REALTOR® may use a variety of CREA, Board/Association and third party systems and software solutions to promote that property and conduct the transaction. So your personal information may end up in more places than you originally anticipated. Talk to your REALTOR® to find out just what exactly they do with your personal information, so you aren’t surprised.

What third parties we receive data from

MLS, CREA, various real estate boards and associations, Realtors, Google, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, website plugins necessary to operate the website, spam detectors, domain providers, hosting providers.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
