SUPERIOR FINANCIAL SERVICES ONLINE PRIVACY STATEMENT
Superior Financial Services, Inc. (“Superior,” “we,” “our,” and “us”) respects the privacy of our online customers and visitors to this web site (www.yoursuperiorfinance.com
) and its affiliated pages (collectively, the “Site”). This Online Privacy Statement explains what information we collect when you visit or otherwise interact with the Site, how we use it, and when we may share it.
In addition, our websites may link to third party services or apps that we don’t control, including social media sites (collectively “Third Party Sites”). You should be aware that Third Party Sites may have different privacy practices from our Site and may provide less security than this Site. The choice to access a Third-Party Site is yours, in your sole discretion.
Please note that this Online Privacy Statement also applies regardless of how you may access the Site, including through a mobile device.
How We Collect Information and What We Collect
We collect and receive certain information about you when you visit the Site. What we receive, and how we receive it, in part depends on what you do when you visit the Site.
We Collect Personally-Identifiable Information When You Provide it to Us
You can view information about our services on this Site without registering for an account. But, to access certain services, we may require you to register or create an account with us and collect the personally identifiable information you provide, including for example: first and last name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, social security number, date of birth, bank account information, and other information required to provide our services (collectively “Personal Information” or “PI”). You can elect to provide all or only some of the PI requested by the website during the registration process. But, if you decline to provide certain PI, you may not be able to use all of our services.
As part of our registration process, you will choose a username and password. The selected username and password may only be used by you. You are solely responsible for maintaining and protecting the confidentiality of your username and password and are fully responsible for all activities that occur thereunder. We reserve the right to reclaim usernames on behalf of businesses or individuals that hold legal claim or trademark on those usernames.
We Collect Non-Personally-Identifiable Information Automatically When You Visit the Site
We may also automatically collect non personally-identifiable information (“NPI”) about you when you visit the Site. The Site and some emails that we may send to you may also use common tracking tools like:
• Web Beacons: A web beacon (also referred to as a “pixel tag”) is a small block of code that is placed on a Site page or within an email. Superior does not use web beacons to collect or store personally-identifiable information.
Superior uses these features to collect non-personally-identifiable information about you. This type of information may include (but is not limited to) your Internet Protocol (IP) address and/or domain; the type and version of the Internet browser that you use; the date, time and duration of your visit to the Site, and the specific pages, buttons, images, videos or other Site content that you may access during your visit. These tools enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on and off our Site.
Your browser may enable you to block or (in the case of cookies) delete some of the means by which we automatically collect information when you visit the Site. You should refer to your browser about what options might be available to you.
We do not currently take actions to respond to “Do Not Track” signals from your browser because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.
We or our advertising service providers may use information about your activities on the Site (such as the pages that you visit and the key words that you use to search for content) to help determine what advertisements or offers might be of interest to you. These advertisements may be on the Site or on Third Party Sites. The use of information in this manner is referred to as “online behavioral advertising.” We believe that online behavioral advertising helps to provide you with more relevant advertising based on the websites that you visit.
You may opt-out of online behavioral advertising by following the instructions in the “Your Options” section of this Online Privacy Statement. Please note that opting out of online behavioral advertising will not stop you from receiving advertisements. However, the advertisements that you see may not be as relevant to you.
Combining PI and NPI
We may combine certain NPI with other identifiers to confirm your identity as part of the registration process for our Site. For example, we may combine an approximate geographic obtained from your mobile device and match it with address information you voluntarily submitted to our Site to confirm your identity and prevent fraudulent conduct. This information would still be considered NPI when it is taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, the type of web browser you used). Aggregated customer information may help Superior assess the performance of its website and develop strategies to maximize utility.
How We Use the Information We Collect
Information that we collect about you and your web browsing behavior is used to optimize your online experience. Among other reasons, we may use the information that you provide or that we collect when you visit the Site to:
• Verify your identity and/or remember your personal settings or preferences when using the Site;
• Determine your interests and needs in order to recommend relevant products and services;
• Qualify you for products and services that you request and to process your transactions;
• Post advertising content on Third-Party Sites, along with web beacons and pixel tags to provide information to us and to third parties about pages you visit after seeing our ads or offers;
• Analyze the quality and performance of our Site and marketing campaigns.
How We Share the Information We Collect
We may share the personally-identifiable information that you provide to us or that we receive from our business partners and/or service providers with our service providers. For example, we share your email address with service providers who send emails on our behalf. We may also share non-personally-identifiable information with third parties who perform advertising services on our behalf and with companies that operate or analyze the Site. We do not authorize these third parties to use or disclose this information except as necessary to perform services for us or to comply with law. These third parties may not use the information that we provide to them to independently market to you unless you consent.
There may be other instances in which we may share either your personally-identifiable or non-personally-identifiable information with a third party. For example:
• To respond to a subpoena, warrant, court order or other official governmental actions that are served upon us, and then in conformity with their terms or as we are otherwise permitted or required by law;
• To respond to our regulators or other governmental authorities;
• To protect or defend Superior or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or their directors, officers, employees, agents, partners, or independent contractors in any legal proceeding;
• Where we suspect fraud or for other risk management purposes;
• As required or permitted by law; or
• As otherwise instructed or authorized by you.
How Long We Keep the Information We Collect
Superior will maintain the information that is necessary to provide the requested service and only for as long as it takes to provide any such requested service. Superior may still need to keep personal details of customers to ensure that systems reflect your preferences, even if a customer has chosen to opt out of allowing Superior to use that customer’s personal details for marketing purposes. Superior may keep records of any transactions a customer enters into on the Site for a minimum of six years from the end of Superior’s relationship with the customer. Superior may keep other information about a customer only to the extent necessary to comply with applicable laws and to further legitimate business needs.
How We Dispose of the Information We Collect
To stop receiving promotional emails, follow the instructions in any promotional message you receive from Superior. Even if you opt out of getting marketing messages, we may still send you transactional messages, including responses to your questions or information about your application or loan.
Superior has developed and maintains security standards that are designed to protect information as it is transmitted from your computer to the network that hosts the Site. This technology is referred to as Secure Socket Layer (SSL), and it is the leading security protocol of data transfer on the Internet.
However, you also have a significant role in maintaining the security of your information. For example, if you should ensure that you have up-to-date antiviral and anti-malware software installed on your computer. You should also understand that Superior will never send you electronic communications (whether they be email or requests made over the Internet) to request sensitive personal information. Similarly, you should never send us your sensitive personal information through a non-secure email channel. If you do communicate with us electronically you consent for us (or our service providers) to reply to you in that medium.
You are also in control of the information that you share with Superior, either directly or indirectly. If you are uncomfortable with sharing your personally-identifiable information with us, the easiest option is not to do so. However, you understand that if you do not share such information with us we may be unable to assist you with certain transactions.
Additionally, if you found information about Superior on a Third Party Site – such as a social media site like Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter – you understand that if you share information about you on such a Third Party Site that it will not be governed by this Online Privacy Statement and, depending on the Third Party Site, may be visible to all users of that Third Party Site. You should review the privacy policies and practices of Third Party Sites before providing information to them.
As a condition of your use of this Site, you agree that you will not, and you will not take any action intended to: (i) access data that is not intended for you; (ii) invade the privacy of, obtain the identity of, or obtain any PI about any customer or user of this Site; (iii) probe, scan or test the vulnerability of this Site or the Superior network or breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization; (iv) attempt to interfere with service to any user, host or network or otherwise attempt to disrupt our business, including, without limitation, via means of submitting a virus to this Site, overloading, “flooding,” “spamming,” “mail bombing” or “crashing;” or (v) send unsolicited mail, including promotions and/or advertising of products and services. Violations of system or network security may result in civil or criminal liability.
