POLICY TO PROTECT NON-PUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION

PRIVACY STATEMENT

First Republic Title, LLC and its subsidiaries (“Company”) respect the privacy and security of your non-public personal information (“NPI”) and protecting your Personal Information is one of our top priorities. This Privacy Statement explains Company’s privacy practices, including how we use the Personal Information we receive from you and from other specified sources, and to whom it may be disclosed. COMPANY follows the privacy practices described in this Privacy Statement and, depending on the business performed, Company companies may share information as described herein.

Personal Information Collected

We may collect NPI about you from the following sources:

  • Information we receive from you on forms, such as your name, address, social security number, tax identification number, asset information, and income information;
  • Information we receive from you through our Internet websites, such as your name, address, email address, Internet Protocol address, the website links you used to get to our websites, and your activity while using or reviewing our websites;
  • Information about your transactions with or services performed by us, our affiliates, or others, such as information concerning your policy, premiums, information about your home or other real property, information from lenders and other third parties involved in such transaction; and
  • Information we receive from consumer or other reporting agencies and publicly recorded

Disclosure of Personal Information

We may provide your NPI (excluding information we receive from consumer or other credit reporting agencies) to various individuals and companies, as permitted by law, without obtaining your prior authorization. Such laws do not allow consumers to restrict these disclosures. Disclosures may include, without limitation, the following:

  • To insurance agents, brokers, representatives, support organizations, or others to provide you with services you have requested, and to enable us to detect or prevent criminal activity, fraud, material misrepresentation, or nondisclosure in connection with an insurance transaction;
  • To third-party contractors or service providers for the purpose of determining your eligibility for an insurance benefit or payment and/or providing you with services you have requested;
  • To an insurance regulatory authority, or a law enforcement or other governmental authority, in a civil action, in connection with a subpoena or a governmental investigation;
  • To companies that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other financial institutions with which we have joint marketing agreements; and/or
  • To lenders, lien holders, judgment creditors, or other parties claiming an encumbrance or an interest in title whose claim or interest must be determined, settled, paid or released prior to a title or escrow

We may also disclose your NPI to others when we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or to protect the safety of our customers, employees, or property and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process.

Disclosure to Nonaffiliated Third Parties – We do not disclose NPI about our customers or former customers to nonaffiliated third parties, except as outlined herein or as otherwise permitted by law.

Confidentiality and Security of Personal Information

We restrict access to NPI about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard NPI.

Access to Personal Information/Requests for Correction, Amendment, or Deletion of Personal Information

As required by applicable law, we will afford you the right to access your NPI, under certain circumstances to find out to whom your NPI has been disclosed, and request correction or deletion of your NPI. However, Company’s current policy is to maintain customers’ NPI for no less than your state’s required record retention requirements for the purpose of handling future coverage claims.

For your protection, all requests made under this section must be in writing and must include your notarized signature to establish your identity. Where permitted by law, we may charge a reasonable fee to cover the costs incurred in responding to such requests. Please send requests to:
