Future Use of Information:

This policy describes Equity Office’s current business practices related to the use of the information we collect on south-station.net In the future, Equity Office may choose to change the way it collects and/or uses this information. Such new use may include the sale or transfer of all or a portion of its database information: (i) to providers of a service that Equity Office believes is valuable to its customers, (ii) as part of a large-scale transaction affecting the ownership interests in Equity Office (such as a merger or acquisition); or (iii) to the owner of the South Station building, thereby minimizing the inconvenience that will be experienced by our customers in connection with such a transition.

Each individual will then have the opportunity to have their information deleted prior to the transfer of ownership.
