Cottrell Title (“Cottrell”) respects and is committed to protecting our customers’ privacy. We will take reasonable steps to protect personal information and to ensure the information is used in compliance with this Privacy Notice.
In the normal course of business and to provide the necessary services to our customers, we may obtain nonpublic personal information directly from the customer, from customer-related transactions, or from third parties such as lenders, appraisers, agents, surveyors, municipalities or other similar entities.
Access to all nonpublic personal information is limited to those employees who have a need to know such information in order to perform their jobs. These employees include, but are not limited to, those in departments such as order entry, processing, estoppels and lien searches, bookkeeping, administration, closing and post-closing.
Generally, Cottrell does not share the nonpublic personal information it collects with anyone other than lenders, insurance agents, real estate agents or brokers, third party contractors who provide services on our behalf, and underwriters, as needed to complete real estate settlement services and issue its title insurance policy as requested by the customer. Cottrell may share information when the customer directs or gives Cottrell permission to do so, or as required by law in response to a subpoena, to a government regulatory agency or to prevent fraud.
Cottrell strives to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the personal information in its possession by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with federal standards.
