Upon registering on our Site or filling out an online form, you agree that you are providing an electronic signature which authorizes OttawaRealEstate.ca or an affiliated real estate agent to contact you at any email address or telephone number you entered. This agent will act as an independent third party to assist you with your request. This authorization overrides any previous registrations on a federal or provincial Do Not Call registry or any internal OttawaRealEstate.ca privacy or solicitation preference you have previously expressed.

When you request an online service on OttawaRealEstate.ca, the information you provide to us is used to assist you with your home buying, home selling or other real estate related needs, to deliver email notifications to you (or to people you designate as your recipients), and from time to time, to validate your identity. Although a certain limited amount of information is required for us to be able to serve you, our data collection policies otherwise allow you to choose how much information you provide to us. The information you provide will be shared ONLY within our network of real estate professionals and organizations that can assist you in the process of selling your home, buying a new home, finding a rental, moving, and finding a mortgage or lender.
