Information Submitted by Applicants
In order for one of our properties to process a lease application, applicants must provide some personal information. This information will be used to identify and consider the applicant for residency, and to contact the resident and/or the resident’s guarantor. We may also request contact information from prospective residents who visit or call one of our properties. This information may be used to contact prospective residents, or to inform them of news or promotions. Any personal information you submit to one of our properties will only be used to conduct official business. We do not sell, rent, or trade this information to unrelated third parties or telemarketers. The information you submit to one of our properties may be accessed by the property, and by American Campus Communities and its affiliates. It may also be disclosed to a credit bureau or investigative agency during the application process, or to a collection agency in the event of contract default. If law enforcement officials or judicial authorities request information, we may, without your consent, provide such information. In matters involving a danger to personal or public safety, we may voluntarily provide information to appropriate government authorities.
