Privacy and Security

The Laurel® is dedicated to protecting the privacy of your information.

As a matter of policy, we do not sell or share your information with third parties. Dissemination of your Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") is solely within your control. Only when you decide to "submit" it to the Board of the building to which your "Board Package" is to be submitted ("Building") is it forwarded by The Laurel®. Any other party to whom you, alone, provide one or more of your Access Numbers may also receive it.

We do, however, reserve the right to disclose your PII as required by law or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.

All of the PII you enter on The Laurel®, including, but not limited to, contact information; references; associations; legal status; net worth and banking and investment information; and tax returns are being submitted to the Building by you via The Laurel® to enable the Building to approve your apartment purchase. We have no control over it after the Building receives it.

It is not our intention to store any PII after an Applicant’s Board Package has been reviewed by a Board. However, only a Building can "delete" the information. Accordingly, Applicants are responsible for making certain that a Building does so.

To make changes to your PII after you have "submitted" to the Building, please contact the Building’s representative. Prior to such "submission", you may re-enter The Laurel® and "edit" any particular entry.

When you enter sensitive information on our site, we ENCRYPT that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). To learn more about SSL, follow this link: Secure Sockets Layer.

We follow generally accepted and state of the art industry standards to protect the PII submitted through us, both during transmission and when we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, any more than is the traditional paper transmission of information. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable state of the art means to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
