Collecting, using, and sharing your personal information:
We require you to share your personal information with us for some of our online activities. These activities include asking us questions, and requesting quotes..

Any information you provide us
If you apply for a product or service, we may collect information from your consumer reports, such as your credit report or motor vehicle report. We may use an "insurance score." An insurance score uses information from your credit report to help predict your future claims. Typical items that could affect an insurance score include payment history, number of revolving, new and collection accounts, bankruptcies, and foreclosures.
You may request the credit report source. Each MAA company has different contact information and instructions for requesting this information, so you will want to review the specific privacy statement for the MAA product you own. We have included links to these products and companies in the box labeled “Privacy Statement for Your Specific Product.”
