How do we collect your information?

With whom may your personal information be shared?

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against you if you are violating the Terms of Use Agreements for a Ashoka Lion site, or may be causing injury to or interference (intentionally or unintentionally) with Ashoka Lion’s rights or property, other users of a Ashoka Lion site or product, or anyone else who could be harmed by your activities. We also reserve the right to disclose your personal information if we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities.

We sometimes employ other companies and individuals to perform services for us. For example, we hire agencies to help administer consumer data, to analyze data, to fulfill requests, and to provide customer service. These parties are required to maintain any personal information they receive from you in confidence and may only use it in connection with the services they are providing to us.

As with any business, your personal information is also an asset of Ashoka Lion and will become part of our normal business records. As such, we may also disclose your personal information to a third party if we decide to sell a line of business to that third party, so you can continue to receive service and information in connection with that line of business with as little disruption as possible. Similarly, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, your personal information may be transferred to Ashoka Lion’s successor or assign.

With regard to property owner and your sensitive private information obtained during tenant application/screening and such, we do not share the credit or consumer reports directly with the owner, but we will discuss the results with the owners regarding your application. However, if our property management relationship ends with the owner, then the owner may request these files be sent to the owner and/or new property management company who takes over after us.

What choices do I have regarding the collection, use, and distribution of my personal information?

Ashoka Lion allows you to control the way that we use personal identifying information that we might obtain. At the time you provide personal information to Ashoka Lion, we may give you the option of declining any future offers or information about new products, promotions, or services.
