II. PURPOSES FOR WHICH WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We use the above-referenced categories of personal information for the following purposes:

To provide our services. We may use your personal information in connection with the management, operation, administration, leasing, and development of the Property or any purchases, or event reservations that you make. We and our third-party service providers, such as our property manager and concierge and amenities vendors, also use information to fulfill your requests and provide you with products and services, such as scanning pictures of the address labels on packages that are delivered to you, fulfilling your food and beverage orders, assisting you with travel or restaurant and entertainment reservations, or ensuring you receive services at the Oasis Fitness Center.  

For marketing purposes. For example, we may use your personal information to provide you with information about events, promotions, retailer discounts, purchase incentives, prize promotions, shopping guides, or offers made by us or other third parties (“Offers”). Our third-party service providers may also use your information to send push notifications on our Apps regarding such Offers and to tell you about new features or services we are offering. You may opt out from allowing push notifications by adjusting the permissions in your mobile device and the Apps, however, this opt-out choice does not apply to in-app notifications. You will not receive marketing calls, text messages, or push notifications from us or our third-party service providers unless you have opted-in to receive such calls, messages or notifications.  We may send you marketing messages as described in this paragraph, but you can opt out from receiving them at any time.  To learn about your choices for these communications, read Section V below.

To provide you with support and respond to your requests and inquiries. We use your personal information to contact you in response to questions, inquiries, or other feedback you provide to us, including with respect to customer support, or in connection with other matters related to our relationship with you, which may include your use of or access to the Property, your lease, product purchases, or event reservations.

To test, develop, analyze, improve, and provide the Sites, the Apps, the Property, our products and services. We might use your information to improve our content, the use, functionality, and configuration of the Property and our services, customize your experience with us and to conduct research and analysis, including to better understand how you use the Property and our services, including those available at the Oasis Fitness Center. For example, the Property is outfitted with beacons, which are small devices that allow us and our third-party service providers to gather valuable analytics on how different areas of the Property are being utilized (including occupancy and density levels) and to push you timely notifications based on your location and the time of day.

To administer our Sites and Apps, and for property management or internal operations. When you download the Apps or access the Sites, we and our third-party service providers collect certain information from you such as your name, email address, and password in order to create and administer your accounts and to identify you for authentication purposes.  We and our third-party service providers also use your personal information to administer the Sites and the Apps, including to troubleshoot, perform data analysis and testing, and to notify you when updates to the Apps are available, or of changes to (i) any products or services we offer or provide through the Apps or the Property, or (ii) our terms, conditions and policies.

For security, safety, compliance, and due diligence purposes. We may use your personal information to safeguard and secure OAC and the Property and its tenants, licensees, occupants, visitors, guests, customers, business partners and their respective Personnel. For example, when you scan your identification access card or fingerprints at the entrance to one of our turnstiles or elevator banks, we and our third-party service providers use that information to verify your identity to ensure you are authorized by us, our property manager, or one or more of our tenants to enter a restricted area of the Property before unlocking the turnstiles or elevator banks. We may also use the information you provide during a COVID-19 health-related screening to maintain a safe environment at the Property, to help mitigate the risk of transmitting the virus and exposing others to COVID-19, and to identify individuals who are displaying COVID-19 symptoms. We also may use your personal information to protect our Sites, Apps, or services (including our IT systems, architecture and networks), as well as to detect and investigate activities that may be fraudulent, or otherwise illegal or prohibited (such as cybersecurity incidents, thefts, property damage, or fraudulent transactions).
