Subject to restrictions and obligations under U.S. Privacy Laws, our Vendors may also use your PI for Business Purposes and Additional Business Purposes, and may engage their own vendors to enable them to perform services for us.

We may also use and disclose your PI under this Notice for Commercial Purposes, which may be considered a “Sale” or “Share” under applicable U.S. Privacy Laws, such as when Third-Party Digital Businesses (defined below) Collect your PI via third-party cookies, and when we Process PI for certain advertising purposes. In addition, we may make your PI available to Third-Parties for their own use.  We provide additional information below regarding our PI disclosure practices in the “More Information on our Disclosure of Your PI” section below the two charts that follow.

More Information on our Disclosure of Your PI

We do not sell our mailing or contact lists to unaffiliated third parties for cash consideration. However, we reserve the right to do so in the future and accordingly provide you an opportunity to opt-out. In addition, New Home obtains your direction to disclose your email address and contact information to our selected service providers for home-related offers and other information we believe will be of interest to our customers, unless you indicated on a registration card or other material that you do not wish to be so contacted.  From time to time, New Home may decide that it is more efficient to use Vendors to perform specific services, such as performing surveys or publishing reviews. If we use a Vendor to provide specific services, then information (such as contact information) may be shared with that party to the extent necessary for the Vendor to provide these services. These Vendors are only allowed to use Personal Information for the purpose of providing the specific services requested by New Home or otherwise permitted of a service provider or processor under U.S. Privacy Laws (e.g., security and fraud prevention). 

New Home may Sell or Share PI to Third-Party Digital Businesses, as disclosed in the first chart above. For information on how you may opt-out of such Selling or Sharing of your PI, see the Do Not Sell/Share/Target section below

Signing up for an interest list or submitting a contact form may result in follow up correspondence from a New Home representative. To unsubscribe from marketing emails, you may use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our communications. You may remove your email address from our email marketing lists at any time by notifying us.

  1. Your Consumer Rights and How to Exercise Them

As described more below, subject to meeting the requirements for a Verifiable Consumer Request (defined below) and limitations permitted by applicable laws, Company provides California, Colorado, and Nevada Consumers the privacy rights afforded to them in their state of residence, to the extent applicable.  For residents of states without Consumer privacy rights, we will consider requests but will apply our discretion with respect to and if and how we process such requests. We will also consider applying state law rights prior to the effective date of such laws, but will do so in our discretion. 

To submit a request to exercise your Consumer privacy rights, or to submit a request as an authorized agent, use our Consumer Rights Request Form or call us at 1-833-459-0189. Our toll-free number is available from 8 am to 5 pm Pacific Time, Monday through Friday other than national holidays. If you submit your request by email, your email must originate from the same email address that we have in our records. Respond to any follow-up inquiries we make. Please be aware that we do not accept or process requests through other means (e.g., via fax, chats, social media etc.).  More details on the request and verification process is in Section 2(g) below.  The Consumer rights we accommodate are as follows:

   (a)       Right to Limit Sensitive PI Processing

We only Process Sensitive PI for purposes that are exempt from Consumer choice under U.S. Privacy Laws.

   (b)       Right to Know/Access

You are entitled to access PI up to twice in a 12-month period.  

           (1)       Categories (available for California Residents Only)

California residents have a right to submit a request for any of the following for the period that is 12-months prior to the request date:

  • The categories of PI we have Collected about you.
  • The categories of sources from which we Collected your PI.
  • The Business Purposes or Commercial Purposes for our Collecting, Selling, or Sharing your PI.
  • The categories of Third Parties to whom we have disclosed your PI.
  • A list of the categories of PI disclosed for a Business Purpose and, for each, the categories of recipients, or that no disclosure occurred.
  • A list of the categories of PI Sold or Share about you and, for each, the categories of recipients, or that no Sale or Share occurred.  

           (2)       Specific Pieces

You may request to confirm if we are Processing your PI and, if we are, to obtain a transportable copy, subject to applicable request limits, of your PI that we have collected and are maintaining.  For your specific pieces of PI, as required by applicable U.S. Privacy Laws, we will apply the heightened verification standards as described below.  We have no obligation to re-identify information or to keep PI longer than we need it or are required to by applicable law to comply with access requests.  

   (c)       Do Not Sell / Share / Target

Under the U.S. Privacy Laws there are broad and differing concepts of “Selling” PI for which an opt-out is required. California also has an opt-out from “Sharing” for Cross-Context Behavioral Advertising (use of PI from different businesses or services to target advertisements). Colorado has an opt-out of “Targeted Advertising” (defined differently but also addressing tracking, profiling, and targeting of advertisements). We may Sell or Share your PI and/or use your PI for Targeted Advertising, as these terms apply under U.S. Privacy Laws. However, we provide you an opt out of Sale/Sharing/Targeting that is intended to combine all of these state opt-outs into a single opt-out available regardless of state of residency. 

Third-Party digital businesses (“Third-Party Digital Businesses”) may associate cookies and other tracking technologies that Collect PI about you on our services, or otherwise Collect and Process PI that we make available about you, including digital activity information. We understand that giving access to PI on our services, or otherwise, to Third-Party Digital Businesses could be deemed a Sale and/or Share under some state laws and thus we will treat such PI (e.g., cookie ID, IP address, and other online IDs and internet or other electronic activity information) collected by Third-Party Digital Businesses, where not limited to acting as our Service Provider (or Contractor or Processor), as a Sale and/or Share and subject to a Do Not Sell/Share/Target opt-out request. We will not Sell your PI, Share your PI for Cross-Context Behavioral Advertising, or Process your PI for Targeted Advertising if you make a Do Not Sell/Share/Target opt-out request. 

Opt-out for non-cookie PI: If you want to limit our Processing of your non-cookie PI (e.g., your email address) for Targeted Advertising, or opt-out of the Sale/Sharing of such data, make an opt-out request here.  

Opt-out for cookie PI: If you want to limit our Processing of your cookie-related PI for Targeted Advertising, or opt-out of the Sale/Sharing of such PI, you need to exercise a separate opt-out request on our cookie management tool here. This is because we have to use different technologies to apply your opt-out of cookie PI and to non-cookie PI. You can also access our cookie management tool by clicking on the “Your Privacy Choices” link on the footer of our website. Our cookie management tool enables you to exercise such an opt-out request and enable certain cookie preferences on your device. You must exercise your preferences on each of our websites you visit, from each browser you use, and on each device that you use.  Since your browser opt-out is designated by a cookie, if you clear or block cookies, your preferences will no longer be effective and you will need to enable them again via our cookie management tool.  Beware that if you use ad blocking software, our site footer “Your Privacy Choices” links may not appear when you visit our services and you may have to use the link above to access the tool.  

Opt-out preference signals (also known as global privacy control or GPC): Some of the U.S. Privacy Laws require businesses to process GPC signals, which is referred to in California as opt-out preference signals (“OOPS”), which are signals sent by a platform, technology, or mechanism, enabled by individuals on their devices or browsers, that communicate the individual’s choice to opt-out of the Sale and Sharing of personal information. To use an OOPS/GPC, you can download an internet browser or a plugin to use on your current internet browser and follow the settings to enable the OOPS/GPC.  We have configured the settings of our consent management platform to receive and process GPC signals on our website, which is explained by our consent management platform here. We process OOPS/GPC with respect to Sales and Sharing that may occur in the context of Collection of cookie PI by tracking technologies online by Third-Party Digital Businesses, discussed above, and apply it to the specific browser on which you enable OOPS/GPC. We currently do not, due to technical limitations, process OOPS/GPC for opt-outs of Sales and Sharing in other contexts (e.g., non-cookie PI).  We do not: (1) charge a fee for use of our service if you have enabled OOPS/GPC; (2) change your experience with any product or service if you use OOPS/GPC; or (3) display a notification, pop-up, text, graphic, animation, sound, video, or any interstitial in response to the OOPS/GPC.

We do not knowingly Sell or Share the PI of Consumers under 16, unless we receive affirmative authorization (“opt-in”) from either the Consumer who is between 13 and 16 years old, or the parent or guardian of a Consumer who is less than 13 years old. If you think we may have unknowingly collected PI of a Consumer under 16 years old, please Contact Us.

We may disclose your PI for the following purposes, which are not a Sale or Share:  (i) if you direct us to disclose PI; (ii) to comply with a Consumer rights request you submit to us; (iii) disclosures amongst the entities that constitute Company as defined above, or as part of a Corporate Transaction; and (iv) as otherwise required or permitted by applicable law.

   (d)       Right to Delete

Except to the extent we have a basis for retention under applicable law, you may request that we delete your PI. Our retention rights include, without limitation:

  • to complete transactions and services you have requested;
  • for security purposes;
  • for legitimate internal Business Purposes (e.g., maintaining business records);
  • to comply with law and to cooperate with law enforcement; and
  • to exercise or defend legal claims.

Please also be aware that making a deletion request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal or deletion of PI or content you may have posted.

Note also that, if you are a California resident, we may not be required to delete your PI that we did not Collect directly from you.  

   (e)       Correct Your PI

Consumers may bring inaccuracies they find in their PI that we maintain to our attention and we will act upon such a complaint as required by applicable law. You can also make changes to your warranty online account in the account settings section of the account. That will not, however, change your information that exists in other places.

   (f)       Automated Decision Making/Profiling 

We do not engage in Automated Decision Making or Profiling.

   (g)       How to Exercise Your Consumer Privacy Rights

To submit a request to exercise your Consumer privacy rights, or to submit a request as an authorized agent, use our Consumer Rights Request Form or call us at 1-833-459-0189. Our toll-free number is available from 8am to 5p Pacific Time, Monday through Friday other than national holidays. If you submit your request by email, your email must originate from the sam email address that we have in our records. Respond to any follow-up inquiries we make. please be aware that we do not accept or process requests through other means (e.g., via fax, chats, social media etc.).

           (1)       Your Request Must be a Verifiable Consumer Request

As permitted or required by applicable U.S. Privacy Laws, any request you submit to us must be a Verifiable Consumer Request, meaning when you make a request, we may ask you to provide verifying information, such as your name, e-mail, phone number and/or account information. We will review the information provided and may request additional information (e.g., transaction history) via e-mail or other means to ensure we are interacting with the correct individual. We will not fulfill your Right to Know (Categories), Right to Know (Specific Pieces), Right to Delete, or Right to Correction request unless you have provided sufficient information for us to reasonably verify you are the Consumer about whom we collected PI. We do not verify opt-outs of Sell/Share/Target or Limitation of Sensitive PI requests unless we suspect fraud.

We verify each request as follows:

  • Right to Know (Categories) (available for California residents only): We verify your Request to Know Categories of PI to a reasonable degree of certainty, which may include matching at least two data points provided by you with data points maintained by us, which we have determined to be reliable for the purpose of verifying you.  If we cannot do so, we will refer you to this Notice for a general description of our data practices. 
  • Right to Know (Specific Pieces) : We verify your request to know Specific Pieces of PI to a reasonably high degree of certainty, which may include matching at least three data points provided by you with data points maintained by us, which we have determined to be reliable for the purpose of verifying you together with a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the Consumer whose PI is the subject of the request. If you fail to provide requested information, we will be unable to verify you sufficiently to honor your request, but we will then treat it as a Right to Know Categories Request if you are a California resident. 
  • Do Not Sell/Share/Target & Limit SPI:  No specific verification required unless we suspect fraud.
  • Right to Delete:  We verify your Request to Delete to a reasonable degree of certainty, which may include matching at least two data points provided by you with data points maintained by us, or to a reasonably high degree of certainty, which may include matching at least three data points provided by you with data points maintained by us, depending on the sensitivity of the PI and the risk of harm to the Consumer posed by unauthorized deletion.  If we cannot verify you sufficiently to honor a deletion request, you can still make a Do Not Sell/Share/Target and/or Limit SPI request.
  • Correction: We verify your Request to Correct PI to a reasonable degree of certainty, which may include matching at least two data points provided by you with data points maintained by us, or to a reasonably high degree of certainty, which may include matching at least three data points provided by you with data points maintained by us, depending on the sensitivity of the PI and the risk of harm to the Consumer posed by unauthorized correction.

To protect Consumers, if we are unable to verify you sufficiently we will be unable to honor your request. We will use PI provided in a Verifiable Consumer Request only to verify your identity or authority to make the request and to track and document request responses, unless you also gave it to us for another purpose.

           (2)       Agent Requests

You may use an authorized agent to make a request for you, subject to our verification of the agent, the agent’s authority to submit requests on your behalf, and of you.  You can learn how to do this by visiting the agent section of our Consumer Rights Request Form. Once your agent’s authority is confirmed, they may exercise rights on your behalf subject to the agency requirements of applicable U.S. Privacy Laws.

           (3)       Appeals

You may appeal Company’s decision regarding a request by following the instructions in our response to you. 

   (h)       Our Responses

Some PI that we maintain is insufficiently specific for us to be able to associate it with a verified Consumer (e.g., clickstream data tied only to a pseudonymous browser ID). We do not include that PI in response to those requests.  If we deny a request, in whole or in part, we will explain the reasons in our response.  

We will make commercially reasonable efforts to identify Consumer PI that we Process to respond to your Consumer request(s).  In some cases, particularly with voluminous and/or typically irrelevant data, we may suggest you receive the most recent or a summary of your PI and give you the opportunity to elect whether you want the rest.  We reserve the right to direct you to where you may access and copy responsive PI yourself.  We will typically not charge a fee to fully respond to your requests; provided, however, that we may charge a reasonable fee, or refuse to act upon a request, if your request is excessive, repetitive, unfounded, or overly burdensome.  If we determine that the request warrants a fee, or that we may refuse it, we will give you notice explaining why we made that decision.  You will be provided a cost estimate and the opportunity to accept such fees before we will charge you for responding to your request.

Consistent with applicable U.S. Privacy Laws and our interest in the security of your PI, we will not deliver to you your Social Security number, driver’s license number, or other government-issued ID number,  in response to a Consumer privacy rights request; however, you may be able to access some of this information yourself through your account if you have an active account with us.

  1. Non-Discrimination/non-retaliation 

We will not discriminate or retaliate against you in a manner prohibited by applicable U.S. Privacy Laws for your exercise of your Consumer privacy rights. We may charge a different price or rate, or offer a different level or quality of good or service, to the extent that doing so is reasonably related to the value of the applicable PI.

  1. Notice of Financial Incentive Programs

We may offer discounts, rewards, giveaways, or other benefits (“Incentives”) from time-to-time to Consumers, such as our Buyer Referral Program for referrals and giveaways for engagements in our marketing programs. We may use your PI and/or your friends’ PI, such as name, phone number, or e-mail address, to administer the Incentives to you and to market our products. However, we do not condition your receipt of Incentives on the non-exercise of your privacy rights. You may opt-in to Incentives we may offer from time-to-time (“Program(s)”). Each Program may have additional terms, available on the Program page or at Program sign-up. The Incentives will be described in the Program page, or at Program sign-up. We generally measure the value of your PI collected in Programs by the cost of operating the applicable Program (excluding Incentive costs) and/or the cost of providing the Incentive. We deem the value of the PI to be reasonably related to the value of the Incentive, and by subscribing to these Programs you indicate you agree. If you do not, do not subscribe to the Programs. For any ongoing Programs, if you subsequently wish to withdraw from the Programs, the method for doing so will be explained in the Program terms. However, a deletion request will not delete Program PI to the extent it is necessary to document your participation in the Program or as necessary to maintain your participation in the Program. With respect to any Program that has ongoing benefits, if you desire to delete Program PI (other than for record keeping purposes) terminate your participation in the Program before making a Consumer deletion request.

  1. Our Rights and the Rights of Others

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, we may collect, use and disclose your PI as required or permitted by applicable law and this may override your rights under U.S. Privacy Laws. In addition, we are not required to honor your requests to the extent that doing so would infringe upon our or another person’s or party’s rights or conflict with applicable law.

  1. Additional Notice for California Residents

In addition to the CCPA, certain Californians are entitled to certain other notices, as follows: 

This Notice provides information on our online practices and your California rights specific to our online services. Without limitation, Californians that visit our online services and seek to acquire goods, services, money or credit for personal, family or household purposes are entitled to the following notices of their rights:

   (a)       California Minors

Although our services are intended for an audience over the age of majority, any California residents under the age of eighteen (18) who have registered to use our services, and posted content on the service, can request removal by contacting us, detailing where the content is posted and attesting you posted it. We will then make reasonably good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view or anonymize it, so the minor cannot be individually identified to the extent required by applicable law. This removal process cannot ensure complete or comprehensive removal. For instance, third parties may have republished or archived content by search engines we do not control.

   (b)       Shine the Light

California Civil Code § 1798.83 (California’s “Shine the Light” law) permits California residents who have supplied personal information, as defined in the statute, to us to, under certain circumstances, request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If this applies, If you are a California resident, you may request information about our compliance with the Shine the Light law by contacting us via e-mail at [email protected], or in writing at: The New Home Company Inc., 15231 Laguna Canyon Rd., Suite 250, Irvine, CA 92618 Attn: General Counsel.  Any such request must include “California Privacy Rights Request” in the first line of the description and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code.  Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests not labeled properly.

As these rights and your CCPA rights are not the same and exist under different laws, you must exercise your rights under each law separately.
