HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
The information we maintain about your relationship helps us identify you and helps prevent unauthorized persons from accessing your information. We use your information to help administer your account. We do not disclose your information to any affiliates, non-affiliates third parties or unrelated companies except as to the administration of your personal account. We do not disclose any of your information to be used on mailing lists or telemarketing for promotional offers.
If your account becomes paid, inactive, or is closed for any reason, we will continue to treat and safeguard your information as described in this Notice.
We will attempt to keep your customer files complete, up to date and accurate. We will tell our customers how and where to conveniently access their account information (except when we’re prohibited to do so by law) and how to notify us about errors, which we will promptly correct.
For purposes of credit reporting, verification and risk management, we will exchange information about our customers with reputable reference sources and cleaning-house services only.
