Our employees are educated and trained on the importance of confidentially and privacy of customer information.

We Maintain Your Privacy When We Do Business Outside our Organization
It is sometimes necessary to provide personally identifiable information about you to a party outside our organization. Some examples are when we hire a vendor or service company to prepare your account statements or to provide support for one or more of our products or services. When we work with outside businesses or companies, these vendors must abide by applicable law. If a vendor is hired to use your information for marketing purposes , we will disclose this to you in advance and give you the opportunity to "opt out", in which case your information would not be provided to the vendor for marketing purposes.

We maintain procedures to protect your confidential information. Other than under the limited exceptions explained in paragraph seven above, it is our practice not to share confidential customer information outside our organization. You do not need to request this confidentiality - it is our standard practice.
