Privacy Policy

ATGF’s Commitment to Privacy

Protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information is an important aspect of ATGF's operations. As a provider of title insurance and related services, the collection of customer's personal information is fundamental to our day-to-day business operations. We strive to provide you with the best customer service. To us, that includes treating your personal information fairly and with respect. Each ATGF employee and representative must abide by our commitment to privacy in the handling of personal information. We understand that you may be concerned about what we will do with such information. You have a right to know how we will utilize the personal information you provide to us. Therefore, ATGF has adopted this Privacy Policy to govern the use and handling of your personal information.

Applicability

This Privacy Policy governs our use of the information that you provide to us. It does not govern the manner in which we may use information we have obtained from any other source, such as information obtained from a public record or from another person or entity.

Types of Information

Depending upon which of our services you are utilizing, we may collect personal information about you from the following sources:
  • Information we receive from you on applications, forms and in other communications to us
  • Information we receive from you through our Internet website
  • Information about your transactions with or services performed by us, our agents, or other persons; and
  • Information we receive from consumer or other reporting agencies and publicly recorded documents.  

Use of Information

We request information from you for our own legitimate business purposes and not for the benefit of any non-affiliated party. Therefore, we will not release your information to non-affiliated parties except:
  • as necessary for us to provide the product or service you have requested of us; or
  • as permitted by law  
We may also disclose your personal information to others when we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or to protect the safety of our customers, employees, or property and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process.
 
We may, however, store such information indefinitely, including the period after which any customer relationship has ceased. Such information may be used for any internal purpose, such as quality control efforts or customer analysis. 
 
We are permitted by law to share your name, address and facts about your transaction with one or more of our agents, affiliated companies, insurers and reinsurers, to provide you with services you have requested, for marketing or product development research, or to market products or services to you. We do not, however, disclose information we collect from consumer or credit reporting agencies with our affiliates or others without your consent, in conformity with applicable law, unless such disclosure is otherwise permitted by law.
 
We do not disclose personal information about our customers or former customers to non-affiliated third parties, except as outlined herein or as otherwise permitted by law.

Former Customers

Even if you are no longer our customer, our Privacy Policy will continue to apply to you.

Confidentiality and Security

We will use our best efforts to ensure that no unauthorized parties have access to any of your information. We restrict access to non-public personal information about you to those individuals and entities who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We will use our best efforts to train and oversee our employees and agents to ensure that your information will be handled responsibly and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We currently maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your non-public information.
 
If you send an electronic mail (email) message that includes personally identifiable information, we will use that information to respond to your inquiry. Remember that email is not necessarily secure against interception or other disclosure. If your communication is very sensitive, or includes information such as your bank account, charge card or social security number, you should not send it in an email.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy may be amended from time to time consistent with applicable privacy laws. When we amend this Privacy Policy, we will post a notice of such changes on our website.
