Privacy Practices & Controls

Disclosures of Personal Information

Realty Income will not disclose, sell, rent, or lease your personal information to others except as described in this Privacy Policy or at the point of collection.

We reserve the right to disclose personal information to our service providers, the government, law enforcement agencies, or other third parties under certain circumstances where a formal request has been made (such as in responding to a court order, subpoena, or judicial proceeding) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary and appropriate to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request, in our sole and absolute discretion. Moreover, in the event of a sale, merger, or transfer of some or all of Realty Income’s assets, or dissolution or bankruptcy, your personal information may be transferred to an unaffiliated third party as part of or apart from other transferred assets. Any transfer will then be governed by and be the responsibility of any purchaser of or successor to the transferred assets or acquired business.

Confidentiality & Security

We take the protection of your personal information very seriously. We use technology tools and design our business practices to help ensure that the personal information of our customers is properly gathered, stored, and processed. We secure your personal information submitted by you using reasonable security measures to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure or accidental loss or destruction. We also work to maintain the security of, and internal and external access to, the personal information of our customers through the use of technology and our business practices. For example, we limit access to personal information about you to employees who we reasonably believe need to access that information in order to do their jobs. However, there are no guarantees that unauthorized access will not occur. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot absolutely ensure the security of any personal information that you transmit to us and you acknowledge this in your access and use of our website.

Governing Your Privacy

Our General Counsel oversees the application of this Privacy Policy, while the Board of Directors’ Audit Committee is responsible for the risk identification process that informs policy development.
