This web site (the “Site”) is provided by Rockrose Development L.L.C. and its affiliates, subsidiaries and related entities (“Rockrose,” “we,” “our” or “us”). This Privacy Notice describes our privacy practices with regard to information about you that could reasonably be used to identify you personally or that is associated with information that identifies you (“Personal Information”). Unless specifically stated otherwise, this Privacy Notice applies only to Personal Information that we gather or collect via the Site and any other Rockrose web site or online service that posts a link to this Privacy Notice. It does not apply to any Personal Information collected offline. Please note that certain features or services discussed in this Privacy Notice may not be offered on the Site at any particular time.
PLEASE REVIEW THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY NOTICE CAREFULLY. IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO OUR PRACTICES AS STATED HEREIN, DO NOT CONTINUE USE OF OUR SITE. YOUR USE OF THE SITE REPRESENTS ACCEPTANCE OF OUR PRIVACY NOTICE AND AGREEMENT TO OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS, WHICH GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE SITE.
You should read this entire Privacy Notice, but here is a partial list of some of the key topics. Any capitalized terms have the meanings given to them where defined in the Privacy Notice.
- Collection of Information About You
- 1.1 Active Information Collection. We may collect Personal Information from you at various places and through various mechanisms on the Site. This may include, for example, when you fill out and submit forms (such as forms requesting information needed to consider you for apartment rentals or potential employment opportunities), when you initiate payments to us through the Site, when you participate in promotions, contests, or sweepstakes on the Site, when you post to any interactive forum, bulletin board, chat room that we may make available on the Site, when you register for e-mail communications, and when you submit a survey response, question or request to the Site using a form or the e-mail address links on the Site.
- 1.2 Passive Information Collection. When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your activities (“Site Usage Information”). Site Usage Information is information about your device, including browser and device identifiers such as IP address, and information about how our visitors use and navigate the Site. To collect this Site Usage Information, the Site and any e-mails sent to you by the Site (or otherwise by Rockrose) may utilize cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts or other tracking technologies (“Tracking Technologies”).
- Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on a device when it is used to visit the Site. A Flash cookie (or locally shared object) is a data file placed on a device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built-in to or downloaded by you to your device. HTML5 cookies can be programmed through HTML5 local storage. To identify local shared objects on your computer and adjust your settings, please visit: www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html.
- Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs,” “Pixel Tags,” or “Web Bugs”) may be included in our Site’s pages and messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Site, to monitor how users navigate the Site, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
- Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
- In addition, third parties may use Tracking Technologies in connection with the Site, such as a Facebook or Instagram widget, which may include the collection of information about your online activities over time and across third-party web sites or online services. We may not control those Tracking Technologies and we are not responsible for them. However, your consent to potentially encountering third party Tracking Technologies in connection with use of our Site and accept that our statements under this Privacy Notice regarding our practices do not apply to the Tracking Technologies or practices of such third parties.
- Our Site does not monitor or take any action with respect to Do Not Track signals or other mechanisms, though we may consider doing so if an understandable and practical standard is developed and widely adopted.
- 1.3 Offline Collection from You. Rockrose may also collect Personal Information from you through means other than the Site. This may include offline collection, such as when you submit a paper application to rent an apartment, make a rent payment by check, or call or visit the management office at a Rockrose property. It may also include e-mails that you send to us separate from the Site. This Privacy Notice does not apply to Personal Information that you provide to us through means other than the Site. However, to the extent we combine the Personal Information we collect from you outside of the Site with Personal Information that we collect through the Site, we will apply this Privacy Notice to the combined information, unless specifically disclosed otherwise.
- 1.4 Information Collected from Other Sources. We may receive Personal Information about you from other sources. For example, if you are applying for an apartment, condo, corporate housing, or employment, either via the Site or offline, we may obtain information from third parties about your creditworthiness, among other information, as part of the application process. This Privacy Notice does not apply to Personal Information about you that we receive from other sources. However, we may combine the information we receive from these other sources with Personal Information we collect through the Site. In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Notice to the combined information, unless specifically disclosed otherwise.
- 1.5 Children. We are a general audience service and do not use the Site to knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13). In the event that we become aware that we have collected personal information from any child, we will dispose of that information. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe that your child under the age of thirteen (13) has provided us with personal information, please contact us at email@example.com.
- Use of Personal Information. We retain and use Personal Information to: (1) provide you with services or process transactions that you have requested; (2) communicate with you regarding information, features or offers that we believe will be of interest to you; (3) respond to your questions or other requests; (4) contact you with regard to the Site; (5) process or communicate with you about applications, payments or changes to your account information; (6) process other information or Personal Information that you submit through the Site; (7) conduct user surveys; (8) contact you regarding a sweepstakes, contest or promotion in which you have participated, and (9) fulfill other purposes disclosed at the time you provide your Personal Information. We may also use the information you provide to improve the Site or Rockrose’s services, to customize your experience on the Site, to serve you specific content, or for any other purposes not inconsistent with this Privacy Notice or prohibited by applicable law.
- Sharing of Personal Information with Third Parties. We do not share your Personal Information with third parties for those third parties’ (other than our affiliates) own direct marketing purposes without your consent. We may share non-personally identifiable information, such as Site Usage Information or other aggregated user statistics, with third parties without restriction. In addition, we may share your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Notice, in any manner in which you expressly consent via the Site, or in the following circumstances:
- 3.1 Affiliated or Subsidiary Companies. We may share Personal Information with our affiliated or subsidiary companies who require access to Personal Information for business purposes related to your tenancy or to process any application, request, inquiry, or other information or Personal Information you submit via the Site, and for our affiliates’ own marketing purposes. This includes the owner of any community where you make application or where you lease, as well as the management company for such community.
- 3.2 Third parties providing services on our behalf. We may share your Personal Information with third parties who perform services on our behalf or on behalf of the owner of one of our properties, or give them access to collect it. This includes, without limitation, third parties that send communications, process payments, analyze data, assist with utility billing or renters’ insurance, provide credit checks, resident screening, or collection services, provide marketing assistance, or create, host and/or provide customer service on our behalf. These third parties may have access to Personal information in order to provide these services to us or on our behalf. These third parties may also receive, or be given access to collect, Site Usage Information and other non-Personal Information for their own use.
- 3.3 Legal Requirements and Law Enforcement. We may disclose Personal Information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; at the request of governmental authorities conducting an audit or investigation (except as prohibited by applicable law); pursuant to a court order, subpoena, or discovery request in litigation; to verify or enforce compliance with our Site’s Terms and Conditions or other agreements or policies governing the Site and applicable laws, rules, and regulations; or whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to limit our legal liability or to protect or enforce the rights, interests, or safety of the Site, its users or other third parties. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful.
- 3.4 Sweepstakes and Promotions. If you choose to enter a sweepstakes, contest or other promotion, your Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties in connection with the administration of such promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law, such as on a winners list. Also, by entering a promotion, you are agreeing to the official rules that govern that promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the promotion to use your name, voice and/or likeness in advertising or marketing associated with the promotion.
- 3.5 Corporate Change. We reserve the right to disclose and transfer your Personal Information in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, financing, sale of substantially all assets, or other corporate change, including for transaction due diligence. For instance, when a potential buyer is interested in purchasing one of our properties, we may provide the potential buyer with information about the property and the tenants who live there, which may include your Personal Information. Upon the sale of the property in which you live, all of your Personal Information may be transferred to the purchaser.
- 3.6 Equal Employment Opportunity Reporting. In conjunction with laws and regulations enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) and similar state and local regulatory agencies, we may ask you to provide us with self-identifying information (such as veteran status, gender and ethnicity). Providing such self-identifying information is voluntary, but if you do provide us with such information, we may submit that information, to the EEOC, the OFCCP and similar state and local regulatory agencies or otherwise use or disclose it for business-related purposes, including, without limitation, responding to information requests, fulfilling regulatory reporting requirements and defending against employment related complaints.
- Notice to Residents of Certain States Some state laws permit residents who provide us with personal information to request certain information regarding our disclosure of such information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. We do not, currently, disclose such information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If we change this policy, we will update this provision and provide instructions on how you may make a request for details.
