  • CALIFORNIA CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT

 

    1. California Consumer Privacy Supplement to Privacy Policy,
      Effective January 1, 2020.
    2. This California Consumer Privacy Supplement (“Supplement”) to our general Privacy Policy applies to visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California in order to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). Our general Privacy Policy is incorporated herein by reference and applies to California resident consumers in tandem with this Supplement to California consumers, with the terms of this Supplement taking precedence.
    3. California consumers have specific rights under the CCPA. You can access the full text of the CCPA by clicking https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180AB375 .
    4. The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), requires that we make certain disclosures about our collection, use, and sharing of California Consumers’ Personal Information (“PI”) as defined by the CCPA and provides California Consumers certain rights regarding User´s PI. Generally, we collect your PI from you, from our affiliates and from our service providers. We collect the following categories of PI which we may share with affiliates, service providers and owners of properties we manage:

 

  • Identifiers (e.g., Name, Phone Number, Email Address, I.P. Address)
  • Personal Records (e.g., Name, Phone Number, Email Address, Credit Card Number)
  • Consumer Characteristics (e.g., age)
  • Customer Account Details / Commercial Information (e.g., your vacation history, rewards program details)
  • Internet Usage Information (e.g., information regarding your interaction with our online services)
  • Geolocation Data (e.g., if you enable this feature on your device while using our app)
  • Sensory Data (e.g., recordings of customer service calls, property security camera footage)
  • Inferences from PI Collected (e.g., your preferences, your likelihood of interest in certain of our services)

 

We process the PI we collect from you for the following business purposes defined in the CCPA:

  • Providing our website, including maintaining and servicing your account on the Site, verifying your information, processing payments, advertising, marketing, or analytic services, and similar functions and services
  • Detecting security incidents and protecting against malicious, deceptive, or illegal activity
  • Debugging our website to identify and repair errors
  • Internal research and development
  • Quality and safety assurance, and improving, upgrading, and enhancing our website
  • Processing and managing interactions and transactions on our website
  • We may also process data for our operational purposes in accordance with our privacy policy.

 

We do not “sell” PI that we collect from you, including PI of minors under the age of 16, as “sell” is defined in the CCPA and will treat PI we collect from you as subject to a do not sell request.

We work with service providers and partner with advertising companies that use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about your visits to our website and third-party sites, and then use that information to deliver advertisements relevant to your interests. There is not yet a consensus as to whether third party cookies and tracking technologies associated with our websites and mobile apps constitute a “sale” of your PI as defined by the CCPA. You may opt out of interest-based advertising using ad industry opt out tools by visiting youradchoices.com/control or optout.networkadvertising.org. We are not responsible for the completeness, accuracy or effectiveness of any third-party programs, tools or frameworks, or the information they provide.

Some browsers have signals that may be characterized as do not track signals, but there is no industry consensus on recognizing or responding to such signals and we currently do not recognize or respond to these signals.

California Consumers have the right to exercise the privacy rights under the CCPA personally or via an authorized agent who meets the agency requirements of the CCPA. Before fulfilling your CCPA request, we must require you to provide sufficient information to reasonably verify your identity and residency. Depending on the type of request, this verification process may include confirming you are the owner of an email address we have in our records and/or requiring you to provide us at least three (3) unique data points. If you use an authorized agent to submit a request, we may require proof that the agent has been authorized by you and take other steps permissible under the CCPA to ensure it is a genuine request.

To make a request according to your rights to know or to request deletion of your personal data set forth below, you may email us at [insert email] or call us at [insert toll free number].

You have the right to send us a request, no more than twice in a twelve-month period, for any of the following from the twelve months prior to the date of your request:

  • The categories of PI we have collected about you.
  • The categories of sources from which we collected your PI.
  • The business or commercial purposes for our collecting or selling your PI.
  • The categories of third parties to whom we have shared your PI.
  • The specific pieces of PI we have collected about you.
  • A list of the categories of PI disclosed for a business purpose in the prior 12 months or that no disclosure occurred.
  • A list of the categories of PI sold about you in the prior 12 months or that no sale occurred. If we sold your PI, we will explain:
    • The categories of your PI we have sold.
    • The categories of third parties to which we sold PI by categories of PI sold for each third party.

You have the right to make or obtain a transportable copy, no more than twice in a twelve-month period, of your PI that we have collected in the twelve months prior to the date of your request and are maintaining.

 

Except to the extent we have a basis for retention under the CCPA, you may request that we delete your PI that we have collected directly from you and are maintaining.

You have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment in a manner prohibited by the CCPA as a result of your exercising your rights under the CCPA.

Separate from the CCPA, California’s Shine the Light law permits customers in California to request certain details about how their personal information is shared with third parties and, in some cases, affiliates if that personal information is shared for those third parties’ and affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. We do not share personal information with third parties or affiliates for those third parties’ or affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. Californians may request information about our compliance with this law by contacting us at [insert contact email] or to the address: 800 Brickell Ave., Suite 601, Miami, FL 33131, with the applicable reference, enclosing a photocopy of his/her national identity document or passport, in force, at any time and free of charge.

To make a request, please provide sufficient information for us to determine if this applies to you, attest to the fact that you are a California resident, and provide your current California address to which we will send our response. Your inquiry must specify “California Privacy Rights Request” in the subject line of the email or the first line of the letter and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year.
