The Standish is committed to protecting your privacy. Keeping your personal and financial information secure is one of our most important responsibilities.

The Information We Collect

In the course of your relationship with us we may collect personal information about you, (such as your name, telephone number, and social security number) and financial information (such as credit card or bank account numbers, and credit history). We may also collect information that you provide when you contact us or use our Website. We use this information to process your applications and requests for services, improve your experience on our Website, provide you with information about our services, otherwise service your needs, or exercise or protect our rights under any law or contract with you. We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to unaffiliated third parties for marketing purposes.

Cookies and Anonymous Information

To provide better service and a more effective Website, we use "cookies" as part of our interaction with your browser. A "cookie" is a small text file placed on your hard drive by our web page server. These cookies do not collect personally identifiable information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to determine who you are or your e-mail address. Cookies are commonly used on the web and do not harm your system. We use cookies to determine if you have previously visited our Website and for a number of administrative purposes. When you use our Website, we also collect anonymous information from you, even if you have not registered with The Standish. We use this information to personalize your experience during your visit to, and to show you the same information (for example, "Last Searched for" in the Apartment Search Section) each time you visit the web Website. The Standish will not share any anonymous information about your use of our Website with unaffiliated third parties.

How We Share Information

The Standish will provide personal and financial information to other companies at your request. For example, if you request to sign-up for certain utilities on-line, then The Standish will provide the necessary information to the utility company or other third party vendors. Also, if you choose to pay your rent or for other services on-line, then The Standish will provide the necessary information to process the transaction to third party vendors. We may also use and disclose your information in order to enforce or preserve our rights under a law, a lease, an application for residency, or any contract with you, or in a lawful attempt to collect a debt owed by you. In certain special cases, we may use and disclose your personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties when we have reason to believe that this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to you, or otherwise injuring or interfering with The Standish's rights, property or operations, other The Standish users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We may also disclose your personally identifiable information when we believe the law requires it, or in response to any request by law enforcement authorities in connection with a criminal investigation, or civil or administrative authorities in connection with a pending civil case or administrative investigation.

Information Security

The Standish values your trust and handles your information with care. When you apply online for a user account or services, you provide personal information that is necessary for us to process your application. To ensure that your application remains confidential, the information is sent to us in a "secure session" established with Secure Socket Layer (SSL). After you have submitted your application online, we recommend that you end your browser session before leaving your computer. We, along with the outside companies with which we work, if applicable, may keep the information you provide to us, along with information we collect from outside sources. The Standish operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection. The Standish has security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your user data under our control. We safeguard information according to established security standards and procedures, and we continually assess new technology for protecting information. Our employees are trained to understand and comply with these information principles.
