We Are Committed to Safeguarding Customer Information
Use of Information
We request information from you for our own legitimate business purposes and not for the benefit of any nonaffiliated party. Therefore, we will not release your information to nonaffiliated parties except: (1) as necessary for us to provide the product or service you have requested of us; or (2) as permitted by law.
We may share your information with our affiliates, such as insurance companies, agents, and other real estate settlement service providers. We also may disclose your Personal Information to agents, brokers or representatives to provide you with services you have requested and to third-party contractors or service providers who provide services or other functions on our behalf.
In addition, we will disclose your Personal Information when you direct or give us permission, when we are required by law to do so, or when we suspect fraudulent or criminal activities. We also may disclose your Personal Information when otherwise permitted by applicable privacy laws such as, for example, when disclosure is needed to enforce our rights arising out of any agreement, transaction or relationship with you.
Confidentiality and Security
Types of Information We Collect

We may also collect information about online activity on our websites, in order to make them more usable, but we do not collect information that identifies you or your customers as an individual in this way without your knowledge.

Use of the Information We Collect
Sharing Information with Non-affiliates
We do not share information with nonaffiliated companies unless you have given us permission to do so or unless it is necessary to maintain or service your business. We may use certain nonaffiliated companies to perform services on our behalf and at our direction to help us communicate with you, or to help us offer or provide you with products or services in connection with your business. In these circumstances, we have written agreements that require the parties with whom we are sharing your Personal Information to keep it safe and confidential and to use it only for the purposes we specify. When entering into an agreement to provide services to any financial institution we contractually agree that customers’ Personal Information will not be sold. Nor will we share that information with any other party including our affiliates for purposes that are not related to providing services to you or your customers.
We Do Not Sell Your Information
We do not permit list brokers, mail-order businesses, telemarketers, or other marketing companies to contact you or your customers to promote their products or services, and we do not sell, lend, or give out your information for this purpose.
