Our Commitment to Privacy
Use of Information
We only use your personally identifiable information to respond to your requests and to provide you with information about CBRE’s services, but may also use it to provide you with marketing material about CBRE services, unless you opt out of receiving this information as provided below. We also use personal information for the purposes of providing our services to clients, maintaining client relationships (such as informing our clients and prospective clients of properties and services that may be of interest to them) and for our other related business activities.
Some of our websites may invite you to contact us or to provide information about yourself. We use the information you provide to personalise your online experience and to deliver the content most suited to your needs.
In addition, “cookies” (i.e. small text files placed on your computer when you first visit the site) are used on some of our websites. Most browsers now recognise when a cookie is offered and permit you to refuse or accept it. If you are not sure whether your browser has this capability, you should check with the software manufacturer, your company’s technology help desk or your Internet service provider.
Cookies are primarily used to enhance your online experience and are not used to track the navigational habits of identified visitors, unless we obtain your permission to do so.

We use this information about the number of visitors and their use of the sites in aggregate form to make our sites more useful and attractive to you.
Some of the cookies we use are provided by Google Analytics and these are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. These cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including numbers of visitors to the site, the pages visited and where visitors have come to the site from.

The personal information you provide to us will be retained only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected or as required by law. We do not share personal information with third parties except as necessary to carry out our business or your request or as required by law or other legal processes, and we never sell your personal information.
Furthermore, personal data collected by CBRE may be transferred to our subsidiaries or affiliated companies where it is necessary to carry out our business or to meet the purpose for which you have submitted the information. By submitting data through CBRE electronically, you are providing explicit consent to trans-border transmission of data collected via our websites.
In addition, we have technological and operational security policies and procedures in place to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or unintentional destruction. Our personnel who have access to the data have been trained to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
