You have the right to request that Prometheus disclose to you: (1) the categories of your personal information collected; (2) the categories of sources from which your personal information was collected; (3) the categories of your personal information that were sold or disclosed for a business purpose, if any; (4) the categories of third parties to whom your personal information was sold, if any; (5) the business or commercial purpose for collecting and/or selling your personal information; and (6) the categories of third parties with whom we share your personal information. You also have the right to request to receive the specific pieces of your personal information collected by Prometheus to the extent such information is maintained by, and available to, Prometheus.

To submit a request, please visit our online request portal: https://prometheusapartments.com/privacy/online-privacy-policy-portal or call our toll-free number, 1-888-977-1383.

However, if your request involves receiving specific pieces of Personal Information (rather than categories of Personal Information), we must first verify your identity by matching at least three pieces of Personal Information provided by you with Personal Information maintained by Prometheus that we have determined to be reliable. Then, you must provide a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose Personal Information is the subject of the request.

We cannot respond to your request to provide any personal information if we cannot verify your identity using the information provided.
In the preceding 12 months, Prometheus has not sold consumer personal information to third parties, and will not sell such information. Prometheus has disclosed consumer personal information to service providers for a business purpose. However, we do not disclose the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age without affirmative authorization.

III. Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information

You have the right to request that Prometheus delete personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.
To submit a request, please log in to your online account and visit our online request portal: https://prometheusapartments.com/privacy/online-privacy-policy-portal or call our toll-free number, 1-888-977-1383.In order to process your request, you must first verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information. If your request relates to non-sensitive information, we can verify your identity by our online account login information, or if you do not have an account, by matching at least two data points provided by you with two data points already maintained by Prometheus.

However, if your request involves sensitive personal information, we must first verify your identity by matching at least three pieces of Personal Information provided by you with Personal Information maintained by Prometheus that we have determined to be reliable. Then, you must provide a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose Personal Information is the subject of the request.

IV. Request Processing and Timing

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

Any disclosures we provide in response to data access and/or data portability requests will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of your request. We will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, which in most cases will involve Adobe PDF and comma delineated data files. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

V. Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of Privacy Rights

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. This means that, unless permitted by the CCPA, your exercise of these rights will not result in Prometheus: (1) denying you goods or services; (2) charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties; (3) providing you a different level or quality of goods or services; or (4) suggesting that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

VI. Designating an Authorized Agent

If you use an authorized agent to submit a request for additional disclosures described in Section II or a request for deletion described in Section III, he or she must provide their name, email address, phone number, and written permission from you that includes your contact information. We will contact you using the information provided and verify your identity directly with us. We cannot respond to your request to provide additional disclosures or delete any personal information if we cannot verify your identity and the authorized agent’s authority to make the request on your behalf. Written permission is not required if the agent provides proof of power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465, or you are submitting the request on behalf of your minor child.

VII. Other California Privacy Rights

California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
