ConServe through its privacy and security practices and/or those of its Servicers ensures all personnel with access to your Account Information are checked for criminal background histories related to theft of information, crimes of dishonesty, and crimes involving money along with checks for conflicts of interest and debarment from professional licensure in the financial industry.

In the case of a consumer, any security incident will be reported to ConServe at 1-855-421-0097, and ConServe will initiate its Security Incident Response Plan (ConServe Procedure- CP.11.4). ConServe’s Policy governing the reporting of Security Incidents is ConServe’s Incident Response Policy (ConServe Policy- PL.18.15).

Types of Information Collected, Including Personally Identifiable Information

ConServe collects and maintains your Personal Information, as obtained in connection with the Services. When you communicate to us through the Portal, ConServe will collect any information you provide us, including personally identifiable information or sensitive information.

Where applicable, you are provided the option of directing ConServe to not save payment card or bank account information at the Portal. Receipts produced will truncate your payment card or bank account information. ConServe and its security monitoring vendors collect internet protocol (“IP”) address or other electronic markers from visitors to the Portal whether a login is created or not for security monitoring purposes.

Although ConServe does not use cookies, we may automatically gather general statistical information from your browser, including your IP address and the pages you request. ConServe will use this data to monitor and maintain the Portal and to improve the services provided by the Portal.

Also, ConServe does not track user browser activities, including “do not track” settings, and therefore ConServe does not respond to any such detected settings because collected Personal Information is never shared with unauthorized third parties.

ConServe does use a payment processor to process your payment card and bank account transactions and the Personal Information you provide for such payments is authorization that the payment processor is allowed to securely process your payment card and bank account information to make a payment to your Creditor through ConServe, to verify the accuracy of the payment card or bank account information, and to save the payment card and bank account information for future payments, if voluntarily chosen by you.

ConServe uses a web-site developer and payment processing company who have access to necessary Personal Information (RevSpring/Billing Tree). ConServe through its privacy and security practices and/or those of its Servicers ensures all personnel with access to your Account Information are checked for criminal background histories related to theft of information, crimes of dishonesty and crimes involving money. ConServe and its Servicers make every effort to become aware of such history and do not employ or provide access to your Account Information to those with such backgrounds that are identified through its investigation.

ConServe may be required by law enforcement, government agencies, or judicial authorities to disclose the Personal Information obtained, or contained in this Portal, to the appropriate governmental authorities. ConServe will disclose such Personal Information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement or government agency investigation. ConServe will fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.

If you bypass providing required information, the Portal will not allow you to continue to the next page. If you cannot provide any required information, you can contact ConServe by telephone, facsimile, email, or mail.

Only ConServe will send you these direct mailings, and only if you indicated that you do not object to these offers. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your information.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. ConServe will not use cookies when you use the Portal. Also, ConServe does not track user browser activities, including “do not track” settings, and therefore ConServe does not respond to any such detected settings because collected Personal Identifiable information is never shared with unauthorized third parties.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Portal, track user's movement, ensure adequate privacy and security, and to protect your information. ConServe does not capture demographic information in the log files.
