Attention: The Manager
There may be instances where SFL may be legally required to disclose information about our customers. It is the policy of SFL to cooperate with the governmental agencies in their properly made, legitimate requests for information, such as a Subpoena or Court Order, in order to prevent fraud or to comply with such governmental agencies or federal regulators. Under these circumstances, only the specific information required by applicable law, Subpoena or Court Order will be disclosed.
SFL maintains appropriate security standards and procedures regarding unauthorized access to customer information. We are constantly testing and implementing security enhancements to ensure the integrity of our system.
SFL has established procedures to ensure that our customers' information is accurate, current and complete in accordance with reasonable commercial standards. SFL will respond to any customer requests to correct inaccurate information in a timely manner.
SFL limits employee access to personally identifiable information to those with a business reason for knowing such information. Following strict guidelines, employees are allowed access to the information needed to perform their job functions and to carry out our goal of providing quality customer service. Our employees have been informed of the critical nature of customer confidentiality and are trained to understand the importance of confidentiality and customer privacy issues.
SFL does not reveal specific information about customer accounts or other personally-identifiable data to unaffiliated third parties for their independent use, except for the exchange of information with reputable information reporting agencies to maximize the accuracy and security of such information or in the performance of routine payment functions by SFL:
There are times when SFL may contract with a third party to provide customer services, such as mobile collection points. If personably-identifiable customer information is provided to such a third party, SFL insists that the third party adhere to similar privacy principles that provide for keeping such information confidential.
