Boston Properties has developed a Privacy Policy, described below, to inform you of Boston Properties' policy and practice regarding information we collect about you on our websites. By using our websites or providing your contact information (e.g., email address), you consent to our practices concerning the collection and use of your information. If you have additional questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact us.

This Privacy Policy governs the collection of information at the website located at the URL http://www.bostonproperties.com and any other Boston Properties websites that display or link to this Privacy Policy as well as any information you submit to Boston Properties via email, and describes what information our sites collect about you, how it is collected and how it is used.

Because our business will continue to evolve, from time to time our policies will be reviewed and may be revised. We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time and notify you by posting an updated version of the Privacy Policy on the websites. It is your responsibility to periodically check this page so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we might disclose it. The amended Privacy Policy will apply between us whether or not we have given you specific notice of any change.

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.
