Privacy and Data Protection Policy.
We at Aska Gateway Estates Inc. (referred to as “Aska Gateway”, “Our”, “We”, or “Us” hereafter) realize the significance of protecting the privacy of visitors of Our web site (referred to as “Owner”, “Tenant”, “Client”, “User”, “Your”, or “You”). At Aska Gateway, We want You to understand what information We collect, how We collect it, and how We use it in the course of Our business.
What is Personal Information?
Personal Information includes but is not limited to Your name, address, zip code, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc.
How Does Aska Gateway Collect Information?
Aska Gateway collects two (2) types of information about You: 1) data that You provide through registration or login registration on Our web site, and 2) data that Aska Gateway gathers through a collection of tracking the web pages that are viewed by You throughout Our web site.
With registration and login registration, We collect information by specifically requesting it from You. Generally this occurs when You register at the web site or request information about a product or a service.
Use and Tracking of Internet Protocol (“IP”) Addresses.
An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to Your computer whenever You are surfing the Internet so that Your computer can be identified by the web servers. This allows Us to identify and gather general information and data about You, such as the web pages You view.
Aska Gateway collects IP addresses for the purposes of helping Us with system administration, report collected information to Our business partners, audit the use of Our web site and diagnose problems with Our servers. When Users request web pages from Our web site, Our web servers log the User’s IP address. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a User’s session will be logged, but the User will remain anonymous to Us.
The information gathered automatically by our system, such as your computer’s IP address, the kind of browser you are using, and a record of your navigation through our site, may be used by Aska Gateway so we can understand how to make our site convenient and useful to our audience. Aska Gateway will not disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties not associated with Aska Gateway unless requested by court order or by legal authority.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
The Aska Gateway web site is comprised of both public and private sections. Public sections can be accessed by anyone and do not require registration or login. Private sections are exclusive to Owners, Tenants, and Clients and requires registration. During registration, you will be explicitly asked for information that personally identifies you. Personal information collected during registration will be primarily used to validate that you are an Owner, Tenant, or Client and have been given access to the private section of the web site by Aska Gateway, but may be used by Us to help offer content and services that are most likely to appeal to You. You will have the means to verify and update your personal information, allowing you to ensure that such information is current and valid.

Aska Gateway may disclose some or all of Your Personal Information to business partners or sponsors, but this use will be specifically described to You prior to data collection or prior to transferring the data.

You should be aware that when You are on Aska Gateway’s and/or Aska Gateway-affiliates’ Web site You can hyperlink, or be directed to, other Web sites that are beyond Our control and/or outside Our service. For example, if You “click” on a banner advertisement or a Aska Gateway search result, the “click” may transfer You off of Our Web Site. These other Web sites may include sites of advertisers, sponsors, and partners that may use Our and/or Aska Gateway-affiliates’ logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other Web sites may send their own cookies to Users, collect data, or solicit Information.
Please keep in mind that whenever You give out information online, that information can be collected and used by people You do not know. While Aska Gateway and Aska Gateway-affiliates strive to protect Users’ information and privacy, We cannot guarantee the security of any information You disclose online, and You disclose such information at Your own risk.
Is Information Secure From Others Using The Aska Gateway Web Site?
The security of all information associated with Our Users is an important concern to Us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of Your information from Your computer to Our servers. Unfortunately, data transmission over the Internet cannot ever be guaranteed to be 100% secure even with the usage of Secure Socket Layers (SSL) and Internet Protocol Security (IPsec). As a result, while We strive to protect Your information, Aska Gateway and Aska Gateway-affiliates cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information You transmit to Us so You do so at Your own risk. Once We receive Your transmission, Aska Gateway uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of Your information, such as firewalls and SSL. However a flawless security does not exist on the Internet.
