Renter beware: Your privacy right might have been violated ! ================================== If you are a renter living in a HOA community anywhere in the Metro Atlanta area that does NOT have "leasing control" and is currently managed by an outside property manager, your landlord might have disclosed your private info to 3rd parties without your knowledge and consent. This has been happening to many renters in Johns Creek and neighboring cities. To find out if your privacy right has been violated, call your landlord or the HOA to find out if your info had been shared with a 3rd party contractor that runs a “Rental Monitoring” program at the HOA community you live in. In addition, your landlord might have already passed on the cost of such a program to you in the form of excessive rental rate hike. You may want to consult an attorney if you are indeed victimized by such a privacy violation.

The activities of this volunteer, all people's movement, are aimed at reviving spiritual and moral values in the world community and establishing a peaceful dialogue around aspects of life within society such as cultural, social, spiritual and moral conditions. The main activities are carried out through the voluntary initiative of people, their desire to change themselves and the world for the better. This is a unique, peaceful global movement in which people, in their spare time, successfully implement an entirely new form of communication, an interaction which results in the unification of people around the world based on the principles of honesty, kindness, and justice.
