HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
You will be furnishing some of your personal information (such as Social Security or other government identification numbers) at the time you apply to rent from us. This information will be on the rental application form or other document that you provide to us or any apartment locator service, either on paper or electronically.
HOW AND WHEN THE INFORMATION IS USED
We may use this information in the process of verifiying statements made on your rental application, such as credit and employment history. We may use the information when reviewing any lease renewal. We may also use it to obtain any payment from you for any monies you may owe us in the future.
HOW THE INFORMATION IS PROTECTED AND WHO HAS ACCESS
In our business, only authorized persons have access to your Social Security or other governmental identification number. We have all documents containing this information in a secured area, accessible only by authorized personnel. We limit access to electronic versions of the information to authorized personnel only.
HOW THE INFORMATION IS DISPOSED
After we no longer need your Social Security or other governmental identification numbers, we will store or destroy the information in a manner that ensures that no unauthorized persons have access. Our disposal method may include physical destruction or obliteration of paper documents or electronic files containing such information.
If you found us through a locator service, please be aware that locator services are independent contractors and are not our employees – even thought they may initially process rental applications and fill out lease forms. You should require locator services you use to furnish their privacy policies, as well.
