Collection of Personal Information
Related collects Personal Information when you fill out an online form that is submitted to Related via the Website, including, but not limited to, those forms requesting information about Related or any of its properties, or requests for someone at Related to contact you. The submission forms require you to provide contact information (such as name and e-mail address), and in some cases ask for other optional information (such as phone number, home address, ZIP code, and contact preferences).
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Related may use the Personal Information to send you information about its company, The Shops at Columbus Circle as well as Related’s properties, as well as to contact you when necessary. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings or e-mails in accordance with the “Opt-Out” section below.
- Agents . Related employs other companies and individuals to perform functions on its behalf (e.g., creating and maintaining the Websites, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance and providing customer service) (“Agents”). Related’s Agents will have access to personally identifiable information solely to perform their functions and provide their services to Related, and for no other purpose.
- Business Transfers. As Related continues to develop its business, Related may sell or buy assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Thus, if Related or a subsidiary Related controls, sells substantially all of its assets, or is acquired by another entity, a customer’s Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets, and you agree that you consent to such transfer.
