Security and Protection of Your Information
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect your Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. Such commercially reasonable steps include physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards. For example, we make extensive use of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures. Additionally, we use best efforts to:
1. Ensure that any third parties with which we share your Information maintain strict confidentiality procedures and data privacy frameworks, and only use your Information as expressly authorized by us;
2. Restrict access to Information to only those employees and agents required for legitimate business purposes; and
3. Contractually require our employees to maintain the confidentiality of Information we collect.
The Information we collect is maintained in secure locations, and is mapped and overseen by the RA Companies’ Data Protection Officer. The RA Companies’ Data Protection Officer and Compliance Department conduct periodic reviews to monitor access and use of the Information.
Despite the steps we take to protect your Information, please be aware that we cannot guarantee the security of our databases or the databases of the third parties with which we may share your Information. We also cannot guarantee that the Information will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the internet, such as via e-mails you send to us.
