Ruff Hewn. is very concerned for your sense of privacy and security while on our site as well as with respect to how we care for your information. The following is our privacy pledge to you and deals with the following issues:
1. Information Collection
From time to time we may ask questions, or we may use data collected to better understand our customers' preferences. This information allows us to improve our products and services, and to offer you specially tailored deals when appropriate. While some of this information is optional, other items are not.
We may request information from you when you:
In each of these instances, we may ask for any of the following types of information: name, e-mail address, phone number, address, as well as other similar personal information that is needed to register or subscribe you to services or offers.
If you don't want to receive promotional material or special offers from us, we ask that you tell us this in the section on communications preferences (opt out by un-checking the appropriate boxes). Please note that in the case of newsletters or mailing lists, you will be able to "unsubscribe" to these mailings at any time. Furthermore, if you need to change your profile and/or preferences, due (for instance) to a change of address, you will be able to make the change at any time.
Aggregate information may be used to design programs and promotions that we think would be of interest to an identified group of customers. For example, if an analysis of purchase data shows that 30% of our viewers are interested in receiving more information regarding the developer, we will make the appropriate changes to the site.
In addition we may use the detailed profiles in order to target special offers and promotions more effectively. Knowing more about you allows us to personalize the delivery of site content to you (at this time personalized content delivery may be via email) should you wish to receive offers from us.
If we decide to use information collected for any purposes other than those identified we will contact you for your agreement.
The Benefits of Providing Information

Note Ruff Hewn. assumes that visitors to our site are adults. We do not require any visitor to provide date of birth at registration. U.S. federal law prohibits discrimination in public accommodations based on age, so when we send out information on real estate offers we are required to treat all site members equally, regardless of age. We will send real estate offers only to customers 21 years old and older.
