George Brown Associates, Inc. (GBA) Statement of Privacy.

GBA is a debt collection agency attempting to collect a debt and any information obtained will be used for that purpose.

GBA is committed to protecting your privacy. This Statement of Privacy applies to GBA Web site and governs data collection and usage at all GBA sites and services; it does not apply to other online or offline sites, products or services. Please read the GBA Statement of Privacy. GBA is a general audience web site, intended for users of all ages. Personal information of all users is collected, used and disclosed as described in this Statement of Privacy.

Collection of your Personal Information

As an E-commerce Web site, GBA collects personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. Information collected by GBA is used solely for the purpose of processing your online payments. GBA does not collect any information about your computer hardware and software.

GBA encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from GBA so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. We are not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the GBA Web site.

Use of your Personal Information

GBA and its operational service partners collect and use your personal information to process payments requested.

GBA does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. GBA may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

GBA does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

Personal information about customer and/or patients may be collected during the account placement process. This information will NOT be made available to any other third parties.

GBA may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on GBA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of GBA, including its Web site; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of GBA or the public.

Personal information collected on this site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which GBA or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. GBA abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.

Security of your Personal Information

GBA is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access that are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we use a secure payment gateway so your information is protected.

Compliance

GBA has made a strong commitment to collect, use and disclose information in accordance with applicable state and federal laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

Employee Education

GBA has made a strong commitment to educate all employees regarding information practices and the proper handing and use of information obtained.

GBA will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. If there are material changes to this Statement or in how GBA will use your personal information, GBA will prominently post such changes prior to implementing the change. GBA encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how GBA is protecting your information.
