Last Updated: May 11, 2020
Yardi Systems, Inc. and its affiliated entities (“Yardi”) is committed to protecting the privacy of individuals and achieving and maintaining the trust of our clients (“Yardi Clients” or “Clients”) and other users of and visitors to Yardi websites (collectively, “Visitors”). Central to this mission is providing a robust security and privacy program that carefully considers data protection matters across the suite of products and services offered by Yardi (“Yardi Services” or “Services”), including data stored by Yardi on behalf of its Clients and their customers in connection with our Services (“Client Data”), and with respect to “personal data,” as defined by the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and “personal information,” as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) (collectively, “personal information”).
Web Sites Covered
IMPORTANT: THIS PRIVACY NOTICE DOES NOT APPLY TO CLIENT DATA. Yardi’s confidentiality/privacy and other obligations with respect to its Services, and Client Data (which is data collected and controlled by Yardi Clients as part of Yardi’s cloud services), are governed solely by the agreements under which the Services are provided to our Clients. The traditional licensees of Yardi Services are residential and commercial real estate property owners and property managers (again, collectively, as used in this Privacy Notice, “Yardi Clients” or “Clients”). Yardi generally has no direct relationship with the individuals to whom our Clients’ Client Data may pertain; Yardi merely hosts or processes such data on behalf of our Clients.
If you have any questions about the data practices of a Yardi Client that uses Yardi Services to process your personal information, please contact the Yardi Client directly. To reach out to your property manager, simply look up your apartment community on RentCafe – first choose your city and you’ll then have the option to perform a search by property name. Once you’ve found your apartment community, you will see helpful information listed (phone no. included) that you can use to contact your property manager.
Web Sites Not Covered
Some Yardi Services enable Yardi Clients to create websites and applications of their own that run on the Yardi platform. The terms of service and privacy notice of the Yardi Client govern such websites. If you submitted personal information to a Yardi Client-controlled website or application (e.g. property branded RentCafe resident portals) and you wish to exercise any rights you may have to access, correct, amend, or delete such data, please inquire with the Yardi Client directly.
The Yardi Sites may contain links to other third-party websites. The information practices or content of such other websites is governed by the privacy statements or notices of such other websites. Yardi encourages you to review the privacy statements or notices of such other websites to understand their information practices.
General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”)
Some countries, including countries in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), impose certain responsibilities on data controllers and data processors. A company is a data controller when it has the responsibility of determining why and how personal information is processed, whereas a company is a data processor when it processes personal information on behalf of a data controller. Yardi is a data processor and not a data controller under GDPR with respect to Client Data. Yardi Clients are data controllers because they make all decisions about how or why Client Data, containing personal information or not, is to be processed, including any disclosure or transmission to third parties. If personal information pertaining to you as an individual has been submitted or entered into a Yardi Service by or on behalf of a Yardi Client, or was otherwise collected by a Yardi Service on behalf of a Yardi Client, and you wish to exercise any rights you may have to access, correct, amend or delete such Client Data, please inquire with the Yardi Client directly. If an authorized Yardi Client requests that we update or remove the data in question and the Client has no ability to do so via use of the Services, we will acknowledge their request within 30 days.
California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)
If you are a California resident, you may have certain rights with respect to personal information, as set forth in Cal. Civ. Code 1798.100 et seq. This “Rights of Individuals” section of this Privacy Statement addresses those California-specific rights as applied to the CCPA-covered information, including the right to request information about the personal information we collect and share and to request access to and deletion of such information consistent with the provisions of the law. Please note that most of the personal information Yardi collects and maintains Yardi maintains on behalf of Yardi clients, as a service provider to those Yardi clients. As a result, Yardi clients’ privacy policies, not this Privacy Statement, cover that information. As a result, if you make a request to us with respect to such data, we will refer you to the Yardi client (for instance, property management companies) on whose behalf we may maintain the information to assist you with your request.
Canada Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”)
To the extent it is applicable, this Privacy Statement is made under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. There are some rare exceptions to the commitments set out in this Privacy Statement.
For more general inquiries, the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Canada oversees the administration of the privacy legislation in the private sector. The Commissioner also acts as a kind of ombudsman for privacy disputes. The Information and Privacy Commissioner can be reached at:

Privacy Laws of Other Territories

Rights of Individuals
Rectifying Personal Information Submitted on Yardi Sites
If we have collected and processed your personal information based on your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using the Privacy Feedback form. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
Visitors who wish to correct, update, change, or erase the personal information they submit on certain Yardi Sites should be able to go back to the applicable registration page or web form to edit their user or organization record. However, some of the information voluntarily submitted that is not personal information, such as a response to a poll or a survey, is typically aggregated and thus not correctable, updatable, changeable, or erasable. For additional information or problems accessing your information from such page, call us at +1 (805) 699-2040, or contact us using our Privacy Feedback form. If you consider that we have processed your personal information in violation of applicable law and failed to remedy such violation to your reasonable satisfaction, you may also lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority in your country.
Your Right To Request Disclosure of Information We Collect And Share About You
Yardi is committed to ensuring that you know what information we collect about you. You can request the following information from us, with respect to personal information we have collected:

- For each category:
- The categories of sources from which we collected the personal information
- The business or commercial purposes for which we collected the personal information
- The categories of third parties with which we shared the information
- The specific pieces of information we collected about you
Yardi will respond to such requests if required by law, in which case the response will cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of the request.
Your Right To Request the Deletion of Personal Information We Have Collected
Upon receiving a deletion request covered by the GDPR, the CCPA, or other applicable privacy law with respect to Yardi Sites, Yardi will delete the personal information we have collected about you, except for where we have a legitimate business purpose to retain such information, or situations where specific information is necessary for us to: provide you with a good or service that you requested, perform a contract we entered into with you, maintain the functionality or security of our systems, or comply with or exercise rights provided by the law. The law also permits us to retain specific information for our exclusively internal use, but only in ways that are compatible with the context in which you provided the information to us or that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us.
We Do Not Sell Personal Information
Yardi does not and will not sell personal information to third parties and has not sold personal information within the last 12 months.
We Are Committed To Honoring Your Rights
If you exercise any of the rights explained in this Privacy Statement, Yardi will continue to treat you fairly. In particular, this means that if you exercise any rights under this Statement, you will not be denied or charged different prices or rates for goods or services, or provided a different level or quality of goods or services than others.
How Yardi Will Respond to a Request to Exercise Your Rights
For individual rights requests covered by the CCPA, Yardi will provide a substantive response to your request generally within 45 days from when we receive it, although it may take longer under certain circumstances. For individual rights requests covered by the GDPR, Yardi will provide a substantive response to your request generally within 30 days from when we receive it, although it may take longer under certain circumstances. For individual rights requests covered by other applicable laws, Yardi will provide a substantive response within the timeframe set forth in such law. In some cases, the law may allow us to refuse to act on certain requests. When this is the case, we will endeavour to provide you with an explanation as to why.
We may ask you for additional information to verify your identity for purposes of responding to a request you have made. If Yardi is unable to verify your identity with the degree of certainty required, we will not be able to respond to the request.
You may designate an agent to submit requests on your behalf. For requests covered by the CCPA, the agent can be a natural person or a business entity that is registered with the California Secretary of State. If you would like to designate an agent to act on your behalf, you and the agent will need to comply with our agent verification process.
Please note that this subsection does not apply when an agent is authorized to act on your behalf pursuant to a valid power of attorney. Any such requests will be processed in accordance with the applicable law pertaining to powers of attorney.
How to Make a Request to Exercise Your Rights
To exercise any of the rights above, or to ask a question, contact us at (800) 866-1124, using our Privacy Feedback form.

Yardi may share your personal information with affiliates of Yardi for the purpose of any necessary collaboration. For example, Yardi may need to share your information with an affiliate for job application and employment purposes.
Yardi may share your personal information with a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of Yardi’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by Yardi about our Visitors is among the assets transferred.
Yardi reserves the right to use or disclose information and personal information provided on the Yardi Sites if required by law or if Yardi reasonably believes that such use or disclosure is necessary to protect Yardi’s rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process.
International Transfer of Information
To facilitate Yardi’s global operations, Yardi may store, transfer and access the information and personal information you submit on the Yardi Sites around the world, including the United States, Canada and other countries in which Yardi or its third party service providers have operations.
If you are using the Yardi Sites or Service from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed by Yardi in our facilities and by those third parties with whom we may share your personal information, in the United States and other locations where we have offices. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country. This Privacy Statement shall apply even if Yardi transfers such information or personal information to other countries. By registering to attend an event, contacting us through our web form or providing information or personal information to us on any Yardi Sites in any other context, you consent to the transfer of your information and personal information among these facilities, including those located outside your home country.
If you are located in the EEA, we will comply with applicable legal requirements and have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your personal information remains protected in accordance with this Notice in relation to the transfer of personal information outside of the EEA. In all such cases, we will only transfer your personal information if:
- The country to which the personal information will be transferred has been recognized as offering an ‘adequate’ level of protection by the European Commission;
- The recipient of the personal information is located in the U.S. and has certified to the EU-U.S. and/or Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework(s), as the case may be; or
- We have put in place appropriate safeguards with respect to the transfer of data, for example by implementing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal information (the “EU Model Clauses”).
In relation to transfers of information between our group companies, we have implemented the EU Model Clauses, which require all group companies to protect personal information they process from the EEA in accordance with European Union data protection law.
You may request a copy of the safeguards that we have put in place in respect of transfers of personal information by contacting us as described in the Contacting Us section below.
Yardi offers Visitors who provide contact information a means to choose how Yardi uses the information provided. You may manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located on the bottom of Yardi’s marketing emails. Additionally, you may specify your communications preferences using our Privacy Feedback form. Yardi Clients cannot opt out of receiving transactional emails related to their account with Yardi or the Services.
Children Under the Age of 16
Yardi Sites are not intended for children under 16 years of age. No one under age 16 may provide any information to, or on, any Yardi Sites. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16, nor do we sell the personal information of children under 16. If you are under 16, do not use any Yardi Sites, and do not provide any information via any Yardi Sites. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that data. If you believe any Yardi Sites may have collected personal information from or about a child under 16, please contact our Legal Department at +1 (805) 699-2040.
Yardi retains the personal information we receive on the Yardi Sites for the duration of your relationship with Yardi, and where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements, to enforce our agreements or comply with our legal obligations). Retention periods may be extended if we are required to preserve your personal information because of litigation, investigations and other similar proceedings, or if a longer retention period is required or permitted by applicable law.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize such data. If this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Yardi is committed to protecting the security of any personal information you provide to us. Yardi uses appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect any such information you submit. Despite these protections, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be completely secure, so you should take appropriate precautions before deciding what information you send us in this way.
