We continually review our policies and practices aimed at maintaining the security and confidentiality of personal information.
Types of information we collect
We collect only information necessary to consistently deliver responsive, high quality service and to fulfill legal and regulatory requirements. The sources and types of information collected may include demographic, payroll, and banking data, Social Security number or other identification, email address and any additional information needed to process transactions, respond to inquiries, and fulfill administrative services requirements. Failure to provide requested information may limit access to the services we can provide.
Protecting the confidentiality and security of participant information
We have adopted and adhere to stringent security standards designed to protect non-public personal information against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to secure the information and comply with federal standards.
Parties to whom we disclose information
Access to client and customer information is strictly limited. We do not disclose any personal information obtained in the course of our relationship unless required or permitted by law, or if necessary to fulfill our contracted administrative services. Permitted disclosures include but are not limited to, providing information to our employees who need to know the information in order to perform administration services, and in limited situations, to unrelated third parties as permitted or required by law, for example, to protect against fraud, to protect the confidentiality or security of our business records, or to comply with applicable legal requirements. In all such situations, we stress the confidential nature of the information being shared and require the third party receiving the information to keep it confidential. Information will not be distributed or shared for marketing purposes or for any other purpose outside the scope of our business requirements.
