We refer to ourselves generally as “Abstract & Title” and “The Abstract & Title Companies.” Each individual company is an independent title insurance agent of Fidelity National Title Group and Doma National Title. This notice is also provided on behalf of our underwriter, as well.
We collect information about you, (for example, your name, address, email address, telephone number) and information about your transaction, including the identity of the real property that you are selling, buying or financing, as well as the purchase price and/or loan amount. We may get this information from you or from the lender(s), attorney(s), or real estate broker(s) whom you or the other parties have chosen. We obtain a copy of and/or gather information related to any deeds, notes, taxes, mortgages and other liens which affect the real property or are otherwise involved in the transaction. When we provide closing, escrow, or settlement services, we may get your social security number, date of birth, loan number(s), and we may receive additional information from third parties including the loan application, appraisals, credit reports, land surveys, escrow account balances and bank account and other investment account numbers to facilitate the transaction. If you are concerned about the information we have collected, please write to us.
We do not share your information with marketers outside our own family of companies. We share your information only to those parties and entities engaged in the transaction, including, but not limited to, buyers, sellers, lenders, realtors, attorneys and other appointed agents, utility companies, homeowners associations and similarly related entities or in other ways permitted by law to provide the service requested by you and other parties to the transaction. The privacy laws permit some sharing without your approval. We may share internally and with nonaffiliated third parties in order to carry out and service your transaction, to protect against fraud or unauthorized transactions, for institutional risk control and to provide information to government and law enforcement agencies. Our companies may share certain information among ourselves. All nonpublic personal information collected, including any credit information, about you is shared only to facilitate your transaction or for some other purpose permitted by law.
