Last Updated and Effective: May 15, 2024


1. INTRODUCTION


We at AJMC LLC (“AJ Operations”, "we", "us", and "our") are strongly committed to transparency, and we want you ("you" and "your") to understand our data privacy practices.


This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, and disclose any personal information that we may hold about visitors to our website, our customers, our business contacts and other third parties with whom we may interact from time to time. It also explains your rights and choices regarding your personal information, and how you can reach us if you have any questions. This Privacy Policy applies to the personal information we obtain when you interact or communicate with us, whether online and offline, including when you: access or use our websites (www. MemoirResidential.com), mobile applications, or any other applications or services that link to this Privacy Policy; purchase or use our products, services, or features, including when you enter into a lease agreement with us; stay with us; engage with us on social media; interact with our advertising or marketing materials; or participate in any of our programs or events. This Privacy Policy also applies to individuals who apply for a position with us. Our “Services”, as such term is used in this Privacy Policy, include our website, products, features, and services, including the services offered at Memoir Residential. For certain products, services, and features, there may be additional notices about our practices and this Privacy Policy supplements any other privacy policies provided or communicated to you. Please read those additional privacy disclosures to understand how they apply to you.


By using our Services, you acknowledge the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not understand the terms of this Privacy Notice, please do not use our Services. If you have questions about this Privacy Notice, please contact us before using, or continuing to use, our Services. Our Services may include links to websites and/or applications operated and maintained by third parties. We have no control over the privacy practices of websites or applications that we do not own. We encourage you to review the privacy practices of those third parties.


We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time by posting the changes here. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of this Privacy Policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you a notification). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access this website, make a reservation with us, use our Services, or purchase any other Product or otherwise interact with us, so that you stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you with respect to your privacy. Where you are providing information on behalf of another individual, such as a fellow traveler, you represent and warrant that you have drawn their attention to this Privacy Policy and, where required, obtained their consent.


2. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION


INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US


We collect two basic types of information from you when you provide it to us and when you use or interact with our Services or through our advertising and media across the Internet: personal information and non-personal information. Personal information includes all information that relates to you or which are opinions about you personally and either identifies or may be used to identify you personally (collectively, “personal information”).


When you use our Services or other services provided by our third-party booking partners, or otherwise contact us to rent an apartment, stay with us, open an account, or sign-up for one of our amenities, we ask you to provide certain personal information, such as your name, postal address, room preferences, phone number, email address, the size and makeup of your party (including how many adults and children), your lease term dates, your arrival/department dates, the location of the property at which you intend to lease or stay, and your payment information.


When you lease an apartment with us, stay at or visit a Memoir Residential property, or use any of our amenities, we may collect the above information, as well as other information relating to your lease, stay or use of our Services, such as your preferences, choices, and purchases and other information that you may choose to provide to us. The purpose of your visit may also reveal certain other personal information, such as if you celebrate a birthday or anniversary with us and choose to let us know so we can celebrate with you.


We also collect personal information when you subscribe to our monthly newsletter online, fill out other online forms, make an online purchase, enter one of our promotions or competitions, communicate with us via third party social media or travel review sites, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us through our website.


We may provide you with the opportunity to participate in contests and sweepstakes, some of which might be sponsored or conducted by a third party. Participation in these contests and sweepstakes is completely voluntary. If you choose to participate, you will provide certain personal information to us. If there is a third-party sponsor involved in the contest or sweepstake, we may provide personal information to the third party sponsor. Please review the sponsor’s privacy policy and be aware that any contests or sweepstakes offered by use may be governed by specific rules and terms and conditions that are separate from and in addition to this Privacy Policy. By participating in any contest or sweepstakes, you will become subject to those rules, including but not limited to receiving emails containing survey communications.
