We Are Committed to Safeguarding Customer Information
In order to better serve your needs now and in the future, we may ask you to provide us with certain information.  We understand that you may be concerned about what we will do with such information – particularly any personal or financial information.  We agree that you have a right to know how we will utilize the personal information you provide to us.  Therefore, together with our parent company, The Ohio Bar Corporation, we have adopted this Private Policy to govern the use and handling of your personal information.

Applicability
This Privacy Policy governs use of the information, which you provide to us.  It does not govern the manner in which we may use information we have obtained from any other source, such as information obtained from a public record or from another person or entity.  Ohio Bar has also adopted broader guidelines that govern our use of personal information regardless of its source.  First American calls these guidelines its Fair Information Values, a copy which can be found on their website at www.firstam.com.

Depending on which of our service you are utilizing, the types of nonpublic personal information that we may collect include:

  • Information we receive from you on applications, forms and in other communications to us, whether in writing, in person, by telephone or any other means;
  • Information about your transaction with us, our affiliated companies, or others, and
  • Information we receive from a consumer-reporting agency;
  • Information that we may receive from other involved with your transaction, such as the real estate agent or lender


Use of Information
We request information from you for our own legitimate business purposes and not for the benefit of any nonaffiliated party.  Therefore, we will not release your information to nonaffiliated parties except: (1) as necessary for us to provide the product or service you have requested to us; or (2) as permitted by law.  We may, however, store such information indefinitely, including the period after which any customer relationship has ceased.  Such information may be used for any internal purpose, such as quality control efforts or customer information analysis.  We may also provide all types of nonpublic personal information listed above to one or more of our affiliated companies.  Such affiliated companies include financial service providers, such as title insurers, property and casualty insurers, and trust and investment advisory companies, or companies involved in real estate services, such as appraisal companies, home warranty companies, and escrow companies.  Furthermore, we may also provide all the information we collect, as described above, to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf, on behalf of our affiliated companies or to other financial institutions with whom we or our affiliated companies have joint marketing agreements.

Former Customers
Even if you are no longer our customer, our Privacy Policy will continue to apply to you.

Confidentiality and Security
We will use our best efforts to ensure that no unauthorized parties have access to any of your information.  We restrict access to nonpublic information about you to those individuals and entities who need to know that information to provide products or services to you.  We will use our best efforts to train and oversee our employees and agents to ensure that your information will be handled responsibly and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and Ohio Bar’s Fair Information Values.  We currently maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your non-public personal information.
