PRIVACY POLICY

This privacy policy of Apartment Investment and Management Company (collectively, with its subsidiaries and affiliates, "Aimco," "we," or "us") describes the privacy practices for Aimco in connection with information we collect from you online through Aimco's website located at www.aimco.com (the "Site") (the "Privacy Policy"). The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you, including information gathered when you visit the Site, and information we may receive from third parties or affiliates in addition to that online information, how we may use that information, whether we disclose that information to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information. Aimco strives to help visitors of the Site protect their privacy while using our Site. By using the Site, you expressly consent to the use and disclosure of information as described in this Privacy Policy.

How We Collect Information

We may collect information in several ways by your use of this Site, as well as from forms you submit to us (such as our "Request a Call form), personal correspondence, such as emails or letters that you send to us, or any other activity through which you identify yourself. We may ask you to voluntarily provide us with personal information on this Site, for example, by creating a profile in the Career Opportunities area of the Site, creating an account to pay rent or submit a service request via the Site or by submitting a rental application to a property online. In addition, when you log onto the Site, our servers may log your IP address, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the HTTP header. Also, our third-party service providers may ask you voluntarily to provide personal information on their websites and may share such personal information with us, as governed by their respective privacy policies. Our use of information received from a service provider will be dictated by the service provider's privacy policies and not this Privacy Policy.

What Information We Collect

We collect 2 types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you ("Personally Identifiable Information"). We also may collect information that by itself typically cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (such as age, profession or gender), user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our Site ("Non-Personally Identifiable Information").

Personally Identifiable Information

Personally Identifiable Information we collect may include your name, email addresses, postal addresses, ZIP code, telephone number, date of birth, marital status, gender, age, user name and password, and other information either desirable or necessary to provide quality services to our customers and visitors. If you sign up for certain services, complete a rental application, complete an employment application, or choose to pay your rent or submit a service request through the Site, then we may collect financial information (such as credit card information, bank account number and routing information, current employment information--including salary, employer, and job title, information about your current financial obligations, other sources of income, and credit history); information regarding your desired employment with Aimco (such as desired employment position, start date, salary and location, employment, educational and criminal history); information about other permanent residents of an apartment you seek to rent from Aimco--including their social security number and date of birth; additional personal information to allow us to perform a background check or otherwise assess your eligibility to rent an apartment at an Aimco property (such as your social security number, your drivers license number, your passport number, whether you smoke cigarettes, prior addresses and rent paid at prior residences, your history of loan default, and your criminal history); and/or information required of residents of Aimco properties (including information regarding an emergency contact for you--including the name, address, phone number and email address of a relative or other emergency contact, information about your pets and information about your vehicle). We may also collect information about you such as your use of the Site and communication preferences.

How We Use Information
