Our Commitment To Privacy


Thank you for visiting the AMLI Residential (“AMLI”) website (including any AMLI-branded and affiliated websites that are both directly linked from this website and display a link to this Privacy Policy, the “Websites”).

Children's Privacy


Except with respect to collection of specific data required to determine unit occupancy within our online leasing process, we do not collect information on the Websites from those we know are under 13, and the registration page for the Websites requires visitors wishing to become Website registrants to be at least 18 years of age. No part of the Websites is structured to attract anyone under 13. By using the Websites, you represent that you are not under 13 years of age.

Links to Third Party Websites


1. General

The Websites may offer links to third party websites that may have information policies and practices different from ours (e.g., utility connection websites, rent easy-pay websites, or any AMLI-branded websites that are operated by third parties and do not link to this Privacy Policy). The fact that we have provided a link to a site is NOT an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship, or affiliation by us with respect to such website, its owners, or its providers. We do not control and are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices or the content of any third party websites.

2. Locator Services

If you found us through a locator service, please be aware that locator services are independent contractors and are not our employees or agents, even though they may initially process rental applications and fill out lease forms. You should require any locator services you use to furnish you their own privacy policies.

Our third-party advertising partners may use certain information about your visits (e.g., excluding name, address, email address or telephone number, but including but not limited to geo-location information and Traffic Data) to this and other websites, mobile websites and/or mobile applications across your various devices, in order to provide content and advertisements about AMLI to you across those various devices.

California Do Not Track Disclosures


Certain web browsers may include settings that allow you to provide “do not track” (DNT) signals to the websites you visit. However, DNT is an evolving technology that currently lacks finalized industry protocols and standards. As such, the Websites do not currently respond to DNT signals, but instead adhere to the standards set forth in this Privacy Policy. For more information about DNT, please visit www.allaboutdnt.com.

When you visit the Websites, our third-party advertising partners, social media providers (e.g., Facebook, Pinterest) and analytics providers (e.g., Google Analytics) may collect information about your online activity on the Websites and on third-party websites. These providers may set web tracking tools (e.g., cookies and web beacons) to collect non-personally identifiable information regarding your online activity (e.g., Traffic Data). In addition, our advertising partners may use this information to deliver advertisements to you when you visit third-party websites within their networks. Please see the “Advertising” section above for more information, including how to opt-out.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Websites, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
