Information We Collect and How We Use It
Information You Submit: You may choose to provide personal information (such as your name, address, birth date, Social Security number, email address, telephone number, and residential history information) through our Sites. In addition, we offer visitors to our Sites various services, which currently include maintenance requests and online rental payments, and which we may change from time to time. We may ask you to submit certain personal information so we can provide you with these services.
Information Collected by Automated Means: In addition, when you visit our Sites, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons. The information we collect in this manner includes IP address, browser characteristics, device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, information on actions taken on the Sites, and dates and times of Site visits. A "cookie" is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A "web beacon," also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. As the visitor clicks through the website, a record of the action may be collected and stored. We also may use third-party web analytics services on our Sites, such as those of Google Analytics. The providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons to help us analyze how visitors use the Sites and improve the overall experience of the Sites. The information collected through these means (including IP address) is disclosed to these providers, who use the information to evaluate use of the Sites. To learn more about Google Analytics and how to opt out, please visit www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
We may use the information we collect to:
- Provide, administer and communicate with you about products, services, events and promotions (including by sending you marketing communications);
- process, evaluate and respond to your requests, inquiries and comments;
- operate, evaluate and improve our business (including developing new products and services; managing our communications; performing market research; determining and managing the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing; analyzing our products, services and websites; and administering our websites);
- protect against and prevent fraud, unauthorized activities, claims and other liabilities; and comply with and enforce applicable legal requirements, industry standards and our policies and terms.
We also may use the information in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.
