We make every effort to keep your information current and accurate. Accordingly, we ask that you notify us in the manner described below of any changes to your personal information.
Notice to California Residents – Your Privacy Rights
A. California "Shine the Light" Law
Under California’s “Shine the Light Law” (Cal. Civ. Code Section 1798.83), California residents are entitled to request certain information about our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. You may make such a request by sending an e-mail or letter to the Company’s Privacy Administrator at the address identified below.
As indicated in Section 1, above, trust is an essential part of our mission, and we take great pride in the relationship of trust that we have built with our customers. In furtherance of our commitment to trust, we have adopted a policy of not selling, renting or sharing your Identifying Information with third parties for direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure (e.g., your request that we send your Identifying Information to neighborhood builders so that they may contact you directly regarding their neighborhoods and products).
B. California Consumer Privacy Act
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (Cal. Civ. Code Sections 1798.100 to 1798.199) (the “CCPA”), California residents are entitled to certain disclosures about how a business collects, uses and shares personal information. Moreover, the CCPA grants to California residents specific rights regarding their personal information.
Consistent with the requirements of the CCPA, the CCPA Addendum identifies the categories of “personal information” (as defined in Section 1798.140 of the CCPA) that the Company has collected about consumers in the preceding twelve (12) months. Additionally, the CCPA Addendum addresses the rights of California residents to make certain requests regarding their personal information; specifically:
The right to request that we disclose the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected regarding the California resident (including the source(s) of the personal information, the Company’s business or commercial purpose for collecting the personal information, and the categories of third parties with whom the Company has shared the personal information); and The right to request that we delete any personal information about the California resident which the Company has collected from the California resident.
NOTE: Although the CCPA also includes a “right to opt-out” of the sale of personal information, we do not and will not “sell” (as said term is defined in the CCPA) personal information without the consent of the person who provides the personal information. Accordingly, the right to opt-out (as afforded to California consumers under the CCPA) does not apply.
The CCPA Addendum also discusses (i) the methods that Californians are to follow in connection with the submission of requests and (ii) the Company’s rights and obligations in connection with processing requests received from Californians.
