This policy outlines RFS’s principles and guidelines regarding the types of personal information we gather, how we use it, and how we secure it.
The Information RFS Collects
Use of the Information
The personal information you provide will be used by RFS only as necessary to administer your claim during the claims administration process. RFS may also use the personal information to respond to your inquiries or to comply with applicable laws and regulations. Your personal information will be entered into our secure database, which will allow RFS to create a record for each potentially eligible claimant.
Transfer of Information
In administering your claim, RFS may share personal information with the SEC solely for the purpose of furthering the claims administration process. RFS may also share personal information with subcontractors and professional service providers that are assisting in the claims administration process. All subcontractors and professional service providers will only use the personal information to perform their duties in connection with the claims administration process. RFS will ensure the adequacy of each third party’s privacy protection, and if necessary, will script and enter into a written agreement with such third party requiring the third party to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required herein.
RFS will only provide an individual’s personal information to a third party if the disclosure is reasonably related and necessary to complete the claims administration process, and the use of the information is consistent with the purpose for which the information was obtained. Information collected by RFS is not used for marketing purposes. RFS does not sell personal information and does not use or otherwise disclose personal information for any purpose other than the administration of an individual’s claim.
RFS stores and protects the personal information it collects with adequate security measures designed to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, destruction and use of personal information entrusted to RFS. The security measures are reviewed regularly to ensure their adequacy and effectiveness.
Access to Personal Information
Upon request, RFS will provide individuals reasonable access to their personal information held by RFS, and RFS will provide individuals an opportunity to correct, amend or delete information that is inaccurate or incomplete. As a security precaution, RFS will require adequate proof of identification before providing access to personal information. RFS retains the right to limit or deny access to personal information when providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances.
