CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT

“Request to Know.” Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”), California residents have the right to request that the Company disclose what Personal Information it collects, uses, discloses and sells (referred to as a “Request to Know”). The Company has not and does not sell Personal Information that it receives to third parties. This Privacy Policy describes the categories of Personal Information we collect, the categories of sources from which Personal Information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting Personal Information, and the categories of third parties with whom we share Personal Information. Pursuant to the CCPA, you have the right to request specific pieces of Personal Information that we have collected about you.

“Request to Delete.” Under the CCPA, California residents also have the right to request that the Company delete any Personal Information which we have collected from such resident (referred to as a “Request to Delete”). We may not be able to delete your Personal Information in response to such a request in certain circumstances, such as if we need to maintain the Personal Information in connection with your purchase of a home from the Company, if you registered as a prospective buyer and we need to maintain such information in connection with a broker referral program, to comply with a legal obligation, or in other circumstances. We will notify you if you request that we delete your Personal Information and we are unable to do so.

To submit a request under the CCPA, please contact us by any of the following methods: (a) by e-mail at [email protected], or (b) submit a written request at our office located at 850 7th St. San Francisco, CA 94107.
