Personally identifiable Information (PII)
The term “PII,” refers to information that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual’s identity, either alone or when combined with other personal or identifying information that is linked or linkable to a specific individual. The definition of PII is not anchored to any single category of information or technology. Rather, it requires a case-by-case assessment of the specific risk that an individual can be identified. In performing this assessment, it is important for an agency to recognize that non-PII can become PII whenever additional information is made publicly available - in any medium and from any source - that, when combined with other available information, could be used to identify an individual.
What does this mean for me?
We take protecting our client's PII very seriously. We are obligated to protect your information, which means we will not share with friends or family. We will not otherwise volunteer the information clients provide us during our terms of service or at any point after. If you would like for us to share your information with a friend or family member that is not mentioned on an application, you please make the request in writing. We securely transfer information through our management software. If it is requested that originals are provided, we will store them in a locked safe until it may be safely returned to you.
