What kinds of information we collect: McDevitt Law Group, P.C. (the “Company”) may collect information about you, (for instance, your name, address, telephone number), and information about your transaction, including the identity of the real property that you are buying or financing. We obtain a copy of any deeds, notes or mortgages that are involved in the transaction. We may get this information from you or from the lender, attorney, or real estate broker that you have chosen. Our title insurance companies then obtain information from the public records about the property so that we can prepare a title insurance policy. When we provide closing, escrow, or settlement services, mortgage lending, or mortgage loan servicing, we may get your social security number, and we may receive additional information from third parties including appraisals, credit reports, land surveys, escrow account balances, and sometimes bank account numbers to facilitate the transaction. If you are concerned about the information we have collected, please write to us.
How we use this information: The company giving or specifically adopting this notice does not share your information with marketers outside its own family. There is no need to tell us to keep your information to ourselves because we share your information only to provide the service requested by your or your lender, or in other ways permitted by law. The privacy laws permit some sharing without your approval. We may share internally and with non-affiliated 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. Companies within a family may share certain information among themselves in order to identify and market their own products that they think may be useful to you. Credit information about you is shared only to facilitate your transaction or for some other purpose permitted by law.
