Data Security Privacy Statement
At FirstPoint, managing and protecting information is what we have been doing going back to our founding in 1906. We value the trust you place in us and are committed to respecting your privacy and the protection of your personal information. It is our policy to maintain the confidentiality of any personal data voluntarily submitted to us in writing or while visiting our website.
Collection and Use
When you visit our website, our servers automatically collect limited information from your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your Internet provider (IP) address. Your IP address does not identify you personally and is used to administer our Web site. The information is used to deliver our Web pages to you upon request, to tailor our site to the interests of our visitors, and to measure traffic within our site.
Unlike large-scale data wholesale operations, we do not accumulate and store data. Our focus is gathering the data requested by our clients and delivering that data to them via a secured network. This transactional process allows us to meet our customers' needs while protecting and maintaining the privacy of both our customers and the data they are requesting.
FirstPoint's commitment to system and data integrity and the protection of that data and privacy is not just the upholding of laws and regulations, but it is the very weave of the fabric that is our corporate culture. It was our cornerstone in 1906 and it continues to be our cornerstone as we begin our second century in business. Strict measures are used to store and maintain personally identifying information to protect it from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction by any unauthorized party while it is under our control. These measures include physical and electronic systems to safeguard the information and prevent the improper use or disclosure of private information with which we are entrusted in accordance with applicable State and Federal laws such as FDCPA and HIPAA regulations.
As a custodian of personal information FirstPoint recognizes its obligation to securely destroy personal information. In compliance with Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act's Disposal Rule, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and other various governmental regulations, FirstPoint applies consistent disposal destruction practices. Materials are shredded beyond practicable reconstruction by contracted professional shredding companies.
