Comey & Shepherd Realtors® Privacy Policy

Updated November 2021

We are committed to protecting your privacy at Comey & Shepherd Realtors® (“Comey”). This privacy policy (“Policy”) sets out how Comey uses and protects the personal information (“PI”) you provide on the Comey website (hereinafter, the “Site”).

Comey shall use any PI you provide to use when you use the Site in accordance with this Policy. However, this Policy applies only to information collected by the Site and does not protect information you post to public areas or third-party websites, except as set forth herein. This Policy imposes no duties on Comey not imposed by state, federal, or other applicable law.

Comey may change this Policy periodically by updating this Site. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you continue to agree with the terms of this Policy.

The Site is owned and operated by Comey. Any inquiries about this Policy should be directed to Comey at, 513.561.5800, or by mail to:

What We Collect

This Policy applies to all PI collected or submitted on the Site. While using the Site, you may have the opportunity to register for an account, make requests or transactions, and post content. Accordingly, depending on the process, you may be asked to provide certain types of PI, such as:

  • Name
  • Postal address
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Credit or debit card information

We may also retain the details of communications, requests, transactions, or payments made or exchanged with us through the Site in order to provide you with more personalized content. However, if requested, we will only keep your payment account number if we first obtain your consent.

Any PI you provide is voluntary or is necessary for the identified purposes for which it is to be used.  Sensitive PI (such as payment account numbers) is only collected if you affirmatively choose to provide it by opting in where applicable.

You have no obligation to provide the information requested on any Comey form, but the failure to do so can impact Comey’s ability to respond to your inquiry, problem, request, or other communication, and may result, in the case of a service or other request, in the denial of such request.

How We Use and Share PI

We will only use the PI you provide for the following specific purposes: to effectuate an account registration made by you; to customize the advertising and content you see; to fulfill purchases or orders if applicable; to improve the content and overall look and feel of our Site and services; to respond to your inquiries or requests; and to provide you promotional messages, surveys, and targeted advertising, unless you have opted out.

We agree that we will not share, sell, rent, or otherwise distribute your PI with outside parties, except to provide products or services you’ve requested through us or to suppliers performing services for us, including for example, companies that host our data services, process payments, deliver communications on our behalf, fulfill service requests, operate apps or plug-ins on our behalf, or perform analytics (as described below). 

We may also provide your PI in response to a validly-issued subpoena, court order, or other legal process, or when necessary to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims made by you or on your behalf. 

Our affiliates and third-party providers use any such PI and data you have provided in accordance with this Policy, may need PI to perform their functions, and may use this PI to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you unless you opt out of such communications.  We also use a third-party advertising company to serve ads when you visit our Site.  These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose.  

From time to time, we may employ the use of return email addresses to answer the email we receive from you.  Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

Also be aware that we may buy and sell business assets and/or divisions; customer information is generally part of such a sale.

Web Statistics and Shared Data

We collect and use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad aggregate demographic information for reporting and sponsorship purposes. IP addresses are not linked to PI.  Comey may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our customers, traffic patterns, and related site information. This data reflects site usage patterns gathered during thousands of customer visits to our Site each month but does not contain behavioral or identifying information about any individual member, unless that member has given us permission to share that information. We may also provide log files and other databases of user information to third parties for analysis, so we can get a better understanding of traffic through our site and thus improve our content offerings.


Like many other websites, Comey uses cookies to identify members by IP address or Web browser so they don’t have to re-enter a user id and password when they, for example, wish to post to a discussion. Cookies also help us improve your experience and display more prominently goods and services that might interest you. If you do not have cookies enabled, you must enter your password each time you access our Site or any of its member features.

Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important to us. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our Site from those we actually know are under 13, nor do we allow registration of users under the age of 13.  If you are under 13, DO NOT give us any PI.  If you have reason to believe that a child has provided PI to Comey, contact us at, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete that information from our databases.


We use reasonable precautions to keep the PI you disclose both in your browsing and your purchases and to only release this PI to third parties we believe share our commitment to privacy in accordance with this Policy. However, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for the actions of these parties.

Scope of this Agreement; Third-Party Websites

Although this Policy applies to the PI obtained when you visit our Site, it does not apply to entities that are not owned or controlled by us.  This Site may contain links to other third-party websites. Please be aware that Comey does not claim any responsibility for the privacy practices of these third-party sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to take reasonable precautions when sharing your PI on third-party websites.


If you wish to make requests regarding any information you have given us, or have any questions on our Policy, you can contact us at
