Sale of Personal Information
Rights under the CCPA
Right to Request Access. You have the right to request that we disclose your Personal Information that is collected, used, and disclosed to third parties. If you make an access request, you will receive the following information about you:
- Categories of personal information collected;
- Categories of sources from which personal information are collected;
- Specific pieces of personal information collected about you;
- Business purpose for collecting or selling; and
- Categories of third parties to whom sold.
This information will be provided free of charge, unless we determine that your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. You may request this information twice in any 12-month period. This right to request access is subject to certain restrictions and is not available to consumers who have requested information about, applied for, or maintain business credit accounts with us. Our employees and employees of our business partners and service providers also do not have a right to request access under the CCPA.
Right to Request Deletion. You have the right to request that we and our service providers delete any Personal Information about you that we have collected from you upon receipt of a verifiable request. This right is subject to the same exceptions as for Right to Access requests.
Submitting Access or Deletion Requests. You can submit your request by calling us at 877-681- 4060 or contacting us online at https://awsintwww.myfortiva.com/customers/. We will acknowledge receipt of your request and advise you how long we expect it will take to respond if we are able to verify your identity. We will work to process all verified requests within 45 days pursuant to the CCPA. If we need an extension for up to an additional 45 days in order to process your request, we will provide you with an explanation for the delay.
Verifying Access or Deletion Requests. To verify a California Consumer”s identity, we may request up to three pieces of Personal Information about you when you make a request to compare against our records. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity. This process is for your protection. An authorized agent may submit a request on your behalf, in which case we may require proof of your authorization and verification of their identity directly from you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use Personal Information that you provide in your request to verify your identity. We reserve the right to take additional steps as necessary to verify the identity of California Consumers when we have reason to believe a request is fraudulent.
If we are not able to honor your request, we will let you know in our response. Situations where we may not be able to honor your request include
- If we cannot verify your identity or if we cannot verify that you have the authority to make a request on behalf of another individual;
- If an exception to the access or deletion right under the CCPA applies, such as when the disclosure of Personal Information would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of another consumer, or when the requested Personal Information is not subject to the CCPA”s access or deletion rights; and
- If your request involves disclosure of social security numbers, driver”s license numbers or government issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, health care or medical identification numbers, account passwords or security questions and answers, or any specific pieces of information, and the requested disclosure presents the possibility of unauthorized access that could result in identity theft or fraud or unreasonable risk to data or systems and network security.
Right to Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you because you exercised any of your rights, such as by
- Denying products or services to you;
- Charging different prices or rates for products or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties;
- Providing a different level or quality of products or services to you; or
- Suggesting that you will receive a different price or rate for products or services or a different level or quality of products or services.

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We recognize the importance of safeguarding and respecting your privacy, and accordingly have adopted this Agreement to serve as the basis for our policies and procedures. This Agreement demonstrates our commitment to providing privacy and security protection to visitors of our website. This Agreement is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard personal information you may provide to us or to others through this website and to assist you in making informed decisions when using this site.
What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our website you may provide two types of information, (1) personal information you knowingly choose to disclose which is collected on an individual user basis and (2) website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website. If you choose to correspond through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and all responses sent through our website. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications as we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
How Do We Use Information We Collect From Cookies and Web Server Logs?
Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” web server logs and Google Analytics to collect information about how our website is used.
“Cookies” are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a website. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that website by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from web page to web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
Cookies help us collect important business and technical statistics. Information gathered through cookies web server logs and Google Analytics may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the website visited just before and just after our website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual user. Our server logs allow us to count how many users visit our website and evaluate our website’s visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your email address or any identifying information about you (although you DO enter those kinds of information in the application process). However, we do store IP addresses for fraud detection and prevention purposes. These technologies do permit us to deliver focused messages or other such responses to you while you are visiting our site or to provide advertising to you when you are visiting other sites. Any such offers, from TBOM or third parties sponsored or approved by TBOM, will be provided in accordance with the respective sender’s privacy notice and any preferences that you have previously provided to that sender.
How Do We Use the Other Information that You Provide To Us?
When providing identifying information to us, such as by email correspondence with us or by entering information into this site, we may use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website.
How Do We Secure Information Transmissions?
When you send personal credit account information through our website, secure server software which we have licensed from Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) encrypts all information you input before it is sent. The information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches its destination. Other email that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send us confidential information such as social security or account numbers through an unsecured email.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
The Servicer uses sophisticated secure technology to protect personal information. Although we have taken reasonable measures to provide for the security of certain information that you send to our site, we cannot guarantee that this information will not be intercepted or decrypted by others. We accept no responsibility for such interception or decryption.
Information Security. We utilize Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
Evaluation of Information Protection Practices. Periodically, our operations and business practices are reviewed for compliance with corporate policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality and quality of our information.
Employee Access, Training and Expectations. We are committed to the protection of information. In general, our business practices limit employee access to confidential information and the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions.
Do We Disclose Information to Outside Parties?
We will provide information about you, website traffic patterns and related website information to our affiliates and/or third parties (including TBOM), as allowed by law.
We also may disclose information provided as described in the section of this document titled How Do We Use the Other Information that You Provide To Us? above.
How Do We Protect Children?
We do not knowingly solicit data from or knowingly market to children. Our website is directed to adult consumers. Parents can use various readily available software packages to prevent their children from accessing websites which they deem to be inappropriate. Parents can choose to utilize other methods to limit the websites to which their children have access.
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so; in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the Servicer requires it or for the protection of our legal rights and as otherwise required by law (such as to respond to the governmental inquiries of TBOM’s regulators).
What About Other Websites Linked to the www.myfortiva.com Website?
We are not responsible for the information practices employed by websites linked to or from our website. Often links to non-Fortiva sites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be of interest to the users of our website.
Please remember that when you use a link to go from our website to another website, the Website Privacy and Security Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link on our website, are subject to such other website’s rules and policies. Please read over their rules and policies before proceeding.
By using our website, you consent to our collection and use of your information as described in this Agreement that does not involve transferring nonpublic personal information to unaffiliated third parties. If we change this Agreement for any reason, we will post the changes on our website.
