This information will be on the rental application form or other documents that you provide to us or to an apartment locator service, either on paper or electronically.
Use of Information We may use this information in the process of verifying your rental, credit, background, and employment history. We may use the information when reviewing any lease renewal. We may use it to assist us in obtaining payment from you for any money you may owe us in the future.
Access to Information Only authorized persons have access to your Social Security or other governmental identification number. We keep all documents containing this information in a secure area, accessible only by authorized persons. We limit access to electronic versions of the information to authorized persons only.
Storing and Disposing of Information 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 person will have access to it. This may include physical destruction of any paper documents or electronic files, or storing paper documents or electronic files where only authorized persons have access.
Third Parties and Locator Services We may use a third party to complete background and credit screenings. If you utilize a locator service to lease with a Sunchase American managed property, please be aware that locator services are independent contractors and are not our employees. You should require any locator services you use to furnish you their privacy policies, as well.
