880 East Street, Lee, Massachusetts

PRIVACY POLICY

The effective date of this privacy policy is July 30, 2021.

SCOPE

This resident portal web site, The Village at October Mountain Association (the “Portal”), is owned by The Village at October Mountain Association, a Massachusetts condominium (“VOM”, “the Condominium”, “we”, or “us”).  This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes our information and privacy practices for the Portal.  Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected through the Portal, and does not cover any information collected at any other web site, by emails to the Condominium, or by its managers, officers, staff or offline by VOM (unless specifically stated).

INFORMATION COLLECTED

Active Collection via the Portal.  To access or take advantage of certain features offered through the Portal, we may ask you to provide personally identifiable information (“PII”), which is information that would reasonably allow someone to identify you personally or contact you, such as your name, address, unit number, email address, home address, email addresses and telephone numbers. You may also choose to provide financial or banking information for certain purposes, such as to make a service request, facilitate payment of your maintenance fees, assessments, fines and other charges owing by you or your renters to VOM.  We may also collect PII from you about another person, such as in the “Contract Us”, “Renters” or “Owners” sections of the Portal. In those instances, we will only use the other persons PII for the purposes stated when you provide you’re the person’s information to us. You may at any time choose to opt out of providing your PII by email to office@octobermountain.com

The Portal is only for use by adult owners of VOM condominium units and registered renters of VOM Condominium Units. As such, the Portal is not directed to children younger than age thirteen, and VOM does not knowingly collect information on the Portal from or about children younger than age thirteen.

Passive Collection of Non-PII via the Portal . The Portal web server automatically collects certain non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”), such as the address (or “URL”) of the web site that you came from before visiting the Portal, which pages you visit on the Portal, which browser you used to view the Portal, and IP address.  In connection with this, the Portal and any e-mails sent from the Portal may utilize cookies, web beacons or similar technologies.  A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your browser from a web server and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie is essentially your identification card when you return to the Portal. You can set your browser to reject the cookies, although rejecting cookies might affect your ability to use the Portal.  A web beacon is a small, often invisible, graphic image included in a web page or e-mail.  We may use web beacons for many purposes, such as to count visitors to the Portal or to monitor how visitors navigate the Portal. VOM may share Non-PII, such as aggregate user statistics, with potential partners and other third parties. 

Offline Collection. VOM may also collect PII from you offline, such as when you call or visit the village office at the Condominium property, register a renter, pay by credit card or check or send an email, text or letter to the Condominium or to its officers or managers.  This Privacy Policy does not apply to PII collected in these circumstances. However, we may combine the PII we collect from you offline with information that we collect through the Portal.  In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Policy to any PII that has been combined, unless specifically disclosed otherwise. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third party websites, Facebook pages, Tinder, Instagram o other social media pages, Nextdoor pages or any listing or entries in any such third party owned or operated portals or pages.

Information from Other Sources.  We may receive information about you from other sources; for example, other owners or renters at the Condominium, the electric or telephone company, Spectrum, the Town of Lee, brokers, plumbers and other contractors who may provide us information about you. We may combine the information we receive from these other sources with PII we collect through the Portal. In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Policy to any PII that has been combined, unless specifically disclosed otherwise.

VOM may store and use your PII to: (1) contact you concerning fees, assessments and other charges you may owe to the Condominium, (2) provide you with services or fulfill transactions that you have requested; (3) communicate with you regarding owner’s meetings, the operations and financial condition of the Condominium, information, features or offers that we believe will be of interest to you; (4) respond to your questions or other requests; (5) contact you with regard to your use of the Portal or, in our discretion, communicate changes to this Privacy Policy, Terms of Use or other policies; or (6) for other purposes disclosed at the time you provide your PII.
