Bozzuto & Associates, Inc., d/b/a The Bozzuto Group, a Maryland corporation, and its subsidiaries and affiliates (“Bozzuto,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Policy.  We adopt this Policy to comply with applicable data privacy and security laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), and any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Policy.

 

This Policy describes the types of information we collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the website https://www.bozzuto.com (our “Website”) and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.   The Policy applies to information we collect on this Website, in email, text, and other electronic messages between you and this Website, and when you interact with our advertising and applications on third-party websites and services, if those applications or advertising include links to this Policy.  It does not apply to information collected by us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by Bozzuto or any third party (including our subsidiaries and affiliates) or any third party, including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link or be accessible from or on the Website.

 

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it.  If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Website.  By accessing or using this Website, you agree to this Policy.  This Policy may change from time to time (see Changes to Our Privacy Policy).  Your continued use of this Website after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Policy periodically for updates.

California Residents: Your California Privacy Rights

 

Right to Know and Data Portability

 

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months (the "right to know").  Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.

  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).

 

Right to Delete

 

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions (the "right to delete").  Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will review your request to evaluate if an exception allowing us to retain the information applies.  We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.) or other applicable federal, state, or local law or regulation.
  6. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  7. Comply with a legal obligation.
  8. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

 

We will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action.

 

Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete

 

To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request by either:

  • Calling us at 1-202-751-2644

 

 

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or delete related to your personal information.  You may also make a request to know or delete on behalf of your child.  You may only submit a request to know twice within a twelve (12) month period.  Your request to know or delete must:

 

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

 

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  We will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make it.

 

Response Timing and Format

 

We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days.  If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please email Privacy@Bozzuto.com.

 

We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt.  If we require more time (up to another forty-five (45) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

 

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve (12) month period preceding our receipt of your request.  The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.  For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

 

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer 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.
