2. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND WHY?
We may collect personal information from which you can be identified, such as your name, date of birth, postal and e-mail address, phone number, social security number, and credit card details.
We will use this data to access and monitor various data sets that you request us to monitor as part of your identity protection service and for the prevention and detection of fraud. When you close your account, we may continue to share information about you according to our legal and regulatory requirements.
We will use the information you provide us solely for the purpose of providing you with the products and services you have requested and for administering our relationship with you, internal business purposes, our product or service development and/or statistical analysis.
In some instances, we may ask information from you about others (such as your child’s information). We will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.
3. DO WE DISCLOSE OR SHARE YOUR INFORMATION?
In order for us to provide you with our identity protection service and for the prevention and detection of fraud, we will share your personal information with third parties who perform services on our behalf. Depending on the service you have requested, we may share your name, e-mail address, or social security number, income, account balances, payment history and credit history with credit bureaus. We will also share your billing information with a credit card processing company in order to bill you for goods and services. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.
In certain situations, Cypher may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
As may be required by law, we may also disclose your personal information, for example, to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process, when we believe in good faith that the disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
In addition, in the event of a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of our assets to a third party, we may also disclose your personal information to the third parties concerned or their professional advisors. In the event of such a transaction, the personal information held by Cypher will be among the assets transferred to the buyer.
In some situations, we may need to disclose or share nonpublic personal information with an affiliated entity or a third party to conduct administrative and other activities on your behalf.Your authorization of us to conduct administrative and other activities on your behalf and your continuing relationship with us acts as your consent to our disclosure of your nonpublic personal information when such disclosure is necessary or convenient to conduct such activities.
4. IS YOUR INFORMATION SECURE?
We have appropriate physical, technical and organizational measures in place to protect your data when held by Cypher that comply with relevant legal and best practice requirements. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card, social security number or login credentials) as part of the enrollment process, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
When you submit information to Cypher through the relevant portal or web site, you should be aware that your information is transmitted across the Internet and that no method of transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. Although we take reasonable security measures to protect your information when we receive it, you also need to ensure you take appropriate steps to protect your information.
