To be considered for residency at a property, applicants (and lease guarantors) must provide some personal information to us. This information will be used by us to identify and consider the applicant for residency, to verify information provided to us by the applicant or guarantor, and to contact the resident and/or the resident's guarantor(s). We may also request contact information from prospective applicants who visit or call one of our properties. This information may be used to contact the prospective residents, or to inform them of news or promotions. Any personal information you submit to one of our properties will only be used to conduct official business. We do not sell, rent, or trade personal information to unrelated third parties or telemarketers. The information you submit to one of our properties may be accessed by the property manager for the property, and by us. It may also be disclosed by us to a credit bureau or investigative agency as a part of the application process, for purposes of credit verification, or to a collection agency in the event of a lease or guaranty default. If law enforcement officials request information, we may, without your consent, provide such information to them. When ordered to do so by a court or other judicial body, we may also provide and disclose such information without your consent. In matters involving a danger to personal or public safety, we may voluntarily provide information to appropriate government authorities.
Some lease applicants may choose to apply for residency online and to pay any applicable application or other fees online. From time to time, the Websites may also allow residents to pay their rent online. E-commerce information is encrypted and securely transmitted via SSL or equivalent technology. These transactions are processed by third parties and we are not responsible for their privacy practices.
Our websites may contain links to other sites for groups that are not directly affiliated with us. Also, we may have a presence on one or more social-networking sites to which you may have access. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these sites, and recommend that you review their privacy policies as they may differ from ours.
