Use of Information
All information gathered from you of a personal nature is so acquired to facilitate your escrow needs, and to ensure that we are providing you with the highest level of customer service possible. Under no circumstances will we release your personal information to another party unless 1) it is necessary for us to provide a service you have specifically requested of us in conjunction with a nonaffiliated company, and 2) we have sought your advance consent. Under no circumstances will we sell or rent information collected through this site.

We are extremely cautious when it comes to shielding your personal information, and endeavor to take all reasonable steps to ensure that such information is not disposed of or used in an improper or unauthorized manner. While it is impossible to guarantee that information collected over the web, as well as through e-mail, is entirely secure, we do employ physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations in order to ensure that information collected on our servers is secure.
Internally, access to your personal information is restricted to only those employees who require access to facilitate your business needs. You may rest assured that our employees understand the importance of handling your information with confidence.
