Depending upon which of our services you are utilizing, the types on nonpublic personal information (“Nonpublic Personal Information”) that we may collect include:

Use of Information
We request information from you for our own legitimate business purposes and not for the benefit of any nonaffiliated party.

We may, however, store such information indefinitely, including the period after which any customer relationship has been ceased. Such information may be used for any internal purpose, such as quality control efforts or customer analysis. We may also provide all of the types of nonpublic personal information listed above to one or more of our affiliated companies.
