“Dear PoPville,

This is language from a lease agreement, it seems to give them A LOT of control over my personal information. It has been a while since I lived in a big corporate-style apartment building (I’ve lived in shared houses for a while) and I don’t remember seeing language like this in the past. Is this normal now?

Consent to Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information Resident agrees that Owner may collect personal information, including but not limited to names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and credit card information (“Personal Information”) about Resident, Resident’s spouse, domestic partner, dependents, family members or occupants (“Information Providers”) residing in the apartment for the purpose of administering certain services to Information Providers which may include, but not be limited to, services necessary or appropriate to complete any transaction, delivery, or provision of products and services that Owner may offer or provide from time-totime (“Owner Services”). Resident consents to the exchange of Personal Information between Owner and the various vendors and service providers that may from time to time be selected or utilized by Owner, or a vendor/service provider required to be a party to certain transactions, delivery or provision of Owner Services (collectively, “Service Providers”), or their respective agents, for the purposes of administering and carrying out the Owner Services, and other related purposes or as permitted or required by law. Resident further consents to the Service Providers’ collection of Personal Information relating to the use of such Personal Information by Service Providers for the purposes described herein.
