The PLP website is located at www.pacificliving.com (the "Site"). PLP is committed to implementing policies and procedures designed to protect your privacy and security, in addition to providing you with the best possible online experience. To that end, we want you to understand what kinds of information we gather about you, how this information is used and safeguarded, and how you can control its use.
Information You Give Us
Information collected from you will vary, depending on how you use the Site and what information you may choose to provide to us (whether through e-mail, online applications, online service requests or otherwise). It is possible to browse most sections of the Site anonymously without submitting any personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") means individually identifiable information about you that we, or third-party service providers with whom we have contracted, collect online, including but not limited to, your full name, a user name and password, e-mail address, phone number, driver license, information about your prior rental activities, physical address, or, for certain products or services, pay stub information, credit information, your social security number or financial information. Personal Information is collected only when you submit such information through the Site or authorize a third party, such as a Social Media site, to do so on your behalf. We do not utilize any other means to collect Personal Information. If you choose to take advantage of some of our products and/or services, or to access certain of our tools or Site functionality, you may be asked to provide Personal Information. You can choose not to provide us with Personal Information, but then you may not be able to fully take advantage of certain features of our Site and we may not be able to provide you with certain requested information, products and/or services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, PLP does not require the disclosure of Personal Information through the Site prior to providing its services to customers, nor does it charge different prices to those who choose not to provide such Personal Information through the Site. If you would like to access PLP services without utilizing the Site, please contact us at: Privacy Administrator. Please note that we contract with third party service providers to provide services to us which are used on the Site, including, without limitation, our online rental application service, our referral network, renter insurance and our resident portal service (including, without limitation, online rent payment and online service request portal).
Automatic Collection of Information
Like many web sites on the Internet, we may automatically track certain information about you as you visit and use our Site to help us to better understand how the Site is used and how we can enhance your overall experience on the Site. This information may include your computer's Internet Protocol address, the URLs and Site pages you have visited, the number of times you visit each Site page, what downloads and/or search queries you have made, how long you spent on particular sections of the Site and on the Site generally, and your browser type. This automatically gathered data includes information provided through the use of "cookies" (which is described in more detail below).

User-Requested Services and Information. Certain products or services on our Site may seek Personal Information from you, which may be used in the following ways:
To the extent you provide us with Personal Information, such Personal Information will be made available to our employees, agents, owners and affiliates.

All such e-mails/postings and communications become our property. Whenever you choose to initiate these kinds of communication with us, or anyone else, you may be contacted in return. Also, remember that communications to us are open to the public, and therefore, your communications can be seen by anyone and are not protected by us or any other entity, unless we choose to maintain such communications as confidential material.

California Do Not Track Signals
What is a DNT Signal?
Currently, various internet browsers offer a DNT option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header that sends a signal to websites visiting by the browser user about the user’s DNT preferences. You can usually access your browser’s DNT option in your browser’s preferences.
How to We Respond?
PLP does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Accordingly, a DNT standard has not been adopted to this day, and therefore PLP does not utilize DNT signals.
We continue to develop our business and in doing so might choose to buy or sell other businesses or assets. Personal Information is generally one of the transferred assets acquired or transferred in such transactions and such transfers will likely occur in the event we sell all or part of our business, including an individual property.

Your e-mail address serves as a unique identifier in our record system, and together with your password is designed to prevent unauthorized access to any information you choose to store on the Site. The data you give us about your personal preferences and demographics may be used to help us offer content, advertisements, products, and services that we believe will be of interest to you. In addition, we may share this information, in aggregate form, with our current and potential advertisers so that they can present advertisements more effectively. Any such information shared will be aggregated and anonymized. No Personal Information will be shared except for as described below.
Unless you specify that you'd prefer not to hear from us, we may use the e-mail address you provide at the time of registration or application or as set forth in your lease file to contact you for promotional or other purposes.
