Information Collected About You
Boston Properties collects certain personal information about you whenever you send an email to Boston Properties or complete one of our online forms, such as the Email Alert form. The personal information you provide can identify you and your business, and include such items as your name, your employer’s name, email and US mail addresses, and office and home telephone and fax numbers.
Boston Properties also collects or logs other information that cannot identify you personally when you visit our websites. This information includes your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and your domain name. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) computer through which you access the web, and a domain name is the name of the ISP computer itself through which you access the web.
Boston Properties logs IP addresses and domain names and aggregates them for system administration and to monitor the use of our site. We use the aggregated information to measure the number of visits to our site, the average time spent on our site, the number of pages viewed, and to monitor various other site statistics. This monitoring helps us evaluate how our websites are used and helps us continuously improve the content we provide. Boston Properties does not share these statistics with outside parties, except businesses that provide requested services to Boston Properties, and bostonproperties.com does not link IP addresses or domain names with any personally identifying information, which means that a visitor’s session will be logged on our servers, but the visitor will remain anonymous.
