The types of Personal Information we collect about you depend on your interactions with us and are described in more detail below.

Information We Collect Directly from You. We collect information directly from you in a variety of ways. Any information you provide to us is voluntary, but please note that some information may be necessary for us to provide you with our Services.

The categories of Personal Information we collect directly from you include:

  • Identifiers, such as your first name, last name, phone number, email address, and mailing address;

You can opt out of accepting cookies by adjusting your browser settings to not accept cookies or to notify you when you are sent a cookie. However, certain features of our Sites or other Services may not work if you delete or disable cookies.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR CALIFORNIA CONSUMERS


The California Consumer Privacy Act or "CCPA" (California Civil Code Section 1798.100 et seq.) requires us to disclose to California consumers the categories of Personal Information (as defined in the CCPA) we have collected in the preceding 12 months, our business and commercial purposes for collecting, using, or selling such Personal Information, the categories of sources from which we collect Personal Information, whether we have disclosed or sold any Personal Information for business or commercial purposes in the preceding 12 months, the categories of Personal Information we have disclosed or sold for a business or commercial purpose in the preceding 12 months, and the categories of third parties with whom we share Personal Information. We have provided these disclosures in the prior sections of this policy. The CCPA also requires us to communicate information about rights California consumers have to request access to their Personal Information, to request deletion of their Personal Information, to request additional details about our information practices, to request to opt out of the "sale" of their Personal Information, if applicable, and to not be discriminated against for exercising such rights.

Your options in regard to the Personal Information we collect about you are described below. You may designate an authorized agent to exercise these options on your behalf by providing your authorized agent with written permission to act on your behalf and by verifying your own identity with APFM. Alternatively, you may provide a power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465.

Personal Information We Disclose or Sell (as defined by the CCPA)


California law requires that we provide transparency about Personal Information we "sell," which, for purposes of the CCPA, means instances in which APFM has shared Personal Information with certain Participating Communities in exchange for valuable consideration. If in the preceding 12 months, APFM may have disclosed Personal Information to Participating Communities to facilitate providing services to you, this disclosure may be considered a sale under California law. The categories of Personal Information disclosed includes: identifiers, such as your first name, last name, phone number, email address, and mailing address, and information about the Services you are seeking for yourself or a Resident. For information about opting out of these "sales," please see the "Do Not Sell My Info" section below. We do not knowingly disclose or sell personal information of minors under 16 years old without affirmative authorization.

Do Not Sell My Info


As described above, we may provide Personal Information for the purpose of connecting you with Participating Communities to discuss services that you may be interested in for yourself or for a Resident. We give you the option to opt out of such sharing at any time by following the "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" link. The link is also available on our Sites and mobile apps.
