Privacy policy

information-logoBottom line

Westside Word collects a limited amount of personally identifiable information from our web site users but does not sell or share this information.

Email privacy

All email sent to Cindy Marty and Westside Word are considered confidential, in keeping with the Real Estate Industry’s best practices.


User-submitted names, links and email addresses are collected as is customary in the process of submitting blog comments. This information is used solely to help Westside Word protect itself from spam and abusive posters. This site may on occasion use comments and the provided name of the commenter for editorial reasons elsewhere on the site — such as a blog post inspired by the comments or a promotional blurb. Comments become the property of this web site.

Third-party information

Westside Word has relationships with Altos Research, IDXPro and perhaps other data/information providers. These services may use “cookies,” which are navigational files stored on your hard drive. This is standard practice on the World Wide Web.

If you subscribe to our email alert news service, we will use your email address to send content to you (via Feedburner).
