Confirmation Privacy Statement

Effective on: August 30, 2019

This privacy policy applies to www.confirmation.com, and learn.confirmation.com ("Confirmation Website(s)") owned and operated by Confirmation. This privacy policy describes how Confirmation collects, shares, secures and uses the personal information you provide on the Confirmation Website(s). It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information.

  1. What personal data and protected health information (PHI) Confirmation collects.
  2. What personal data third parties collect through the Website(s).
  3. What organization collects the information.
  4. How Confirmation uses the information.
  5. With whom Confirmation may share user information.
  6. What choices are available to users regarding collection, use, and distribution of the information.
  7. What types of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under Confirmation’s control.
  8. How users can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

Registration

In order to use the Confirmation website(s), a user must first complete the registration form. During registration, a user is required to give professional and personal contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to validate our users and to, therefore, grant access to our service. We also ask our accounting customers to provide their CPA registration/credentialing information in order to validate his/her status to include employment verification.

Order

We request information from the user on our order form. A user must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.

Third party information is collected on the site (such as client information entered for the purpose of conducting confirmations of accounts) The following are the types of information that are requested for a client: contact information, client's name, client contact name, client address, client contact's email address. This information is used to validate the client users of the service. A welcome email is generated to the clients to notify them that they have been set up on the service by their accountant and to provide them notification of their initial security codes. These emails are only used for the primary purpose of providing the service of the site and are not used for any secondary purposes.

INFORMATION USE

Confirmation, through its online service production website(s), collects three types of information:

  1. General Personal Data
  2. Customer Financial Information
  3. Protected Health Information (PHI)

General Personal Data is used to validate the user, associate transactional confirmation activities including authorization, determine access permissions, and to facilitate communications from the site. The customer is free to modify this information at any time.

Customer Financial Information includes certain bank/company balance information that is stored in our database on a temporary basis, and credit card payment information provided by the customer at the time of the payment for the provision of services.

PHI may be stored on Confirmation’s HIPAA compliant system as a document attachment to a legal confirmation request when/if this information is deemed pertinent to the legal confirmation audit.

All Customer Financial information or legal confirmation attachments containing PHI residing within Confirmation's secure processing controls will be maintained and stored according to our stated security and privacy policies. Confirmation takes no responsibility for Customer Financial Information once this data is no longer within Confirmation's control (e.g., data downloaded by the user, or mailed confirmations). The Confirmation website(s) serve the function of an online provider of balance assurance services for its customers. This service is designed for use by accountants in their conducting of audit procedures as described by Generally Accepted Accounting Standards (GAAS).

We process General Personal Data only for so long as is necessary for the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, after which it will be deleted or archived except to the extent that it is necessary for us to continue to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

檔案

We store information specifically given to us by our users through the account set up process, and/or the account edit process. In addition, we store the IP address, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP) and access times. We do not store the information provided through the use of cookies. A profile has stored information that provides the company with information describing the end user of our service. All such collected information is used only for the conducting of the provision of our service.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We, Confirmation, and our analytics or service providers use cookies or similar technologies in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.

We use cookies to remember users' settings (e.g. language preference), for authentication. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some features or areas of our site may be limited.

Online Advertising

We use Google AdWords, Google Analytics, Google Display Network, Adobe Analytics, and HubSpot to track user behavior and manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partners may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this site and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.

Log Files

Like most standard website(s) servers, we use log files. This includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, and Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system and access time. Confirmation and its production Website(s), use log files only to track errors in the system. Log file information is not tied to a user's personal data.

INFORMATION COLLECTED FOR OUR CLIENTS

Confirmation collects information under the direction of its clients and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. If you are a customer of one of our Clients and would no longer like to be contacted by one of our Clients that use our service, please contact the Client that you interact with directly. We may transfer personal information to companies that help us provide our service. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the service agreements with our Clients.

An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should direct his query to the Confirmation's Client (the data controller). If requested to remove data we will respond within 30 days. We will retain personal data we process on behalf of our Clients for as long as needed to provide services to our Client. Confirmation will retain this personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE SITE

Core Communications

These include email, mail, and call communications to facilitate the processing of audit confirmations, announce new enhancements to the service, aid in common user account administration functions, distribute information on upcoming site maintenance, and to provide notice of various updates to our terms of service or policies. These also include communications designed to educate and provide resources to both new and existing users on how to use the application, welcome emails, training sessions, and Responder Network updates.

客戶服務與支持

We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services, and in regard to issues relating to their account, we reply via email or phone in accordance with the user’s wishes.

Marketing Communications

We may from time to time send emails or mail to provide you with information regarding new product and service offerings, product and service notifications, and/or complementary resources.

Generally, you may not opt-out of Customer Support or Core Communications. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account. If you do not wish to receive marketing communications you can simply not consent to receive them (if your location requires consent), use the “Manage Your Preferences” and “Unsubscribe” links provided within each marketing email message, or contact Customer Support at Customer.Support@confirmation.com.

SHARING

We will share your personal data or legal confirmation attachments containing PHI with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy policy. We do not sell your personal data or legal confirmation attachments containing PHI to third parties.

Legal Disclaimer

In certain situations, Confirmation may be required to disclose personal data or legal confirmation attachments containing PHI in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may also need to disclose personal data or legal confirmation attachments containing PHI when required by law such as to comply with a subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings, or similar legal process when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

Aggregate Information (non-personal data)

We do not share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. These are the instances in which we will share users' personal data or legal confirmation attachments containing PHI:

Third Party Intermediaries

We use PCI-DSS compliant outside credit card processing companies to bill users for services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personal data for any secondary purposes.

Business Transitions

In the event Confirmation goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal data or legal confirmation attachments containing PHI will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified via prominent notice on our website(s) for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal data or legal confirmation attachments containing PHI. If as a result of the business transition, the users' personally identifiable information or legal confirmation attachments containing PHI will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection they will be given choice consistent with our notification of changes section prior to the information being used for the new purposes.

Surveys & Contests

From time to time, our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user, therefore, has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Users' personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties unless we give prior notice and choice. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests, they may not use users' personal data for any secondary purposes.

安全性

This Website(s) takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Website(s), their information is protected both online and offline.

The Confirmation Website(s)s are entirely encrypted and protected using 256-bit encryption with a public RSA 2048-bit key for SSL Extended Validation Certificates with Server Gated Cryptography by DigiCert for internet communications. This means that when our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also use appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect user-information offline. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a Customer Support representative) are granted access to personal data. The servers that store personal data are in a secure environment, in a hardened hosting facility. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If users have any questions about the security at our Website(s), users can send an email to: Customer.Support@confirmation.com (www.confirmation.com) or learn@confirmation.com (https://learn.confirmation.com/learn).

SUPPLEMENTATION OF INFORMATION

In order for the website(s) to properly fulfill its obligation to users, it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources. We use outside sources to verify a user's accounting credentials to validate that user's access to our system. If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

Personal Data Management and Inquiries

You have the following rights in relation to personal data relating to you that we process:

  1. Upon request, Confirmation will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. You may also request a copy or access to the personal data concerned.
  2. If your personal data changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address) you can update your data by editing your user profile on the Confirmation.com Website(s) or by contacting Customer Support.
  3. Where we are processing personal data relating to you on the basis of your prior consent to that processing, you may withdraw your consent at any time, after which we shall stop the processing concerned.
  4. If you have a complaint about the processing of your personal data by Confirmation, please contact Customer Support. If we are unable to rectify the issue to your satisfaction, you are always able to lodge a formal complaint with the applicable Supervisory Authority.

Personal data inquiries can be submitted by contacting the Confirmation Data Protection Officer at Customer.Support@confirmation.com (www.confirmation.com) or learn@confirmation.com (learn.confirmation.com/learn). We will respond to your request within 30 days.

Social Media Widgets

Our website(s) includes social media features, such as the Facebook "Like" button, and Widgets, such as the "Share This" button or interactive mini-programs that run on our website(s). These features may collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address, which page you are visiting on our website(s), and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our website(s). Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy statement of the company providing it.

感言

We display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our site in addition to other endorsements. With your consent, we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at Customer.Support@confirmation.com (www.confirmation.com) or learn@confirmation.com (https://learn.confirmation.com/learn).

Links to 3rd Party Sites

Our website includes links to other website(s) whose privacy practices may differ from those of Confirmation. If you submit personal data to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any website(s) you visit.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy statement, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy statement under which the information was collected.

If, however, we are going to use a user's personal data in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email prior to the change becoming effective. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site through deactivating their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal data be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our website(s) prior to the changes taking effect. In some cases where we post a notice, we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.

REGIONAL PRIVACY REQUIREMENTS

(B) Capital Confirmation is committed to ensuring that adequate safeguards are in place to protect the data that Capital Confirmation store and process.

(C) Capital Confirmation has signed up to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, a European Commission approved adequacy mechanism for providing protection to personal data transferred to a third country.

(a) “Capital Confirmation Group” means Capital Confirmation and any corporate entities which are from time to time under Common Control with Capital Confirmation

(b) “Directive” – Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and any applicable national legislation or regulation implementing that Directive or any subsequent EU  or Swiss legislation in respect of privacy or data protection as updated amended or replaced from time to time including the Regulation (EU) 2017/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2017 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) and any related national legislation or regulation;

(c) “personal data” “processing”, “data controller”, “data subject and “data processor” shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Directive;

1.2 An entity “Controls” another entity if it (a) holds a majority of the voting rights in it; (b) is a member or shareholder of it and has the right to remove a majority of its board of directors or equivalent managing body; (c) is a member or shareholder of it and controls alone or pursuant to an agreement with other shareholders or members, a majority of the voting rights in it; (d) has the right to exercise a dominant influence over it pursuant to its constitutional documents or pursuant to a contract; and two entities are treated as being in “Common Control” if either controls the other (directly or indirectly) or both are controlled (directly or indirectly) by the same entity.

2. International data transfer outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland

We will comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks, as required, for as long as such mechanism is regarded as providing adequate protection to personal data transferred outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland (as the case may be) by the European Commission and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commission respectively (or other body with such authority).

2.2 Further, we agree to:

(i) act only on instructions from you in connection with the provision of the services (unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law).

  1. Capital Confirmation是個場所

3.1 Capital Confirmation並非銀行或律師事務所,我們也不是被授權的銀行或律師事務所代表。 我們的網站是個場所,讓用戶可隨時隨地用來請求、接收及購買詢證函。 We are not involved in the actual transaction between users of and providers of the confirmation information.因此,我們對於請求及回應的品質、正確性、時效性或合法性,或請求及回應的真偽或正確性皆無法掌控。 We also cannot ensure that a provider will actually complete a transaction.

3.2 身分驗證。 當用戶在我們的網站上註冊時,我們使用許多方法來驗證其身分。然而,因為在網上進行用戶驗證不易,Capital Confirmation對每位用戶所聲稱的身分無法也不進行確認。因此,我們建立了一個用戶啟動的溝通系統,以協助您評估您的交易對象。我們鼓勵您透過我們網站上所提供的工具直接與個別方進行溝通。

3.3 免責。 基於我們是個場所,如果您與一位或多位用戶發生爭議時,您將免除Capital Confirmation(和我們的主管、董事、代理人、子公司、合資公司以及員工)對因此而產生或以任何方式與這類爭議相關的每種已知和未知性質、可疑和未料及、已披露和未披露的求償、要求及損失(實際及衍生)的責任。 If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

3.4 資訊掌控。 我們無法掌控由其他用戶透過我們的系統所提供的資訊。您可能會發現其他用戶的資訊並不正確。使用我們的網站時,請務必謹慎,並且運用判斷力及安全措施。

3.5 客戶服務與支持。 Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Central Standard Time, customer support shall be available free of charge by telephone or by email at one or more phone numbers or email addresses to be specified on our website located at www.confirmation.com.

  1. 網外詢證函

The Out-of-Network confirmation service requires the requestor to enter the contact information for the responder and the responder’s company. 因為您作為請求者,您決定網外詢證函要發送給哪個實體的哪位人員,因此也決定回應方是哪個實體的哪位人員,而您同意對於確認及驗證個人回應方身分及其所聲稱代表的公司負唯一全責。您了解Capital Confirmation未曾也將不會驗證回應方或其所聲稱代表的公司的身分。 You release and hold harmless Capital Confirmation from any and all claims related to the responder’s identity and/or the identity of the company the responder claims to represent if you request confirmations through www.confirmation.com using the Out-of-Network confirmation service.

HIPAA/HITECH

The federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), includes laws and regulations governing health insurance coverage protection and health information security for Americans and their families. The intent of HIPAA is to assure the portability of health insurance, decrease health care fraud and abuse, improve efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare, enforce standards, and guarantee security and privacy of patient identifiable information.

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, was signed into law on February 17, 2009, to promote the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology. Subtitle D of the HITECH Act addresses the privacy and security concerns associated with the electronic transmission of health information, in part, through several provisions that strengthen the civil and criminal enforcement of the HIPAA rules.

HIPAA and HITECH compliance certification is the formal way to assure individuals that a provider is committed to protect their medical information.

We are committed to respect the privacy of all health care information and to follow industry standard guidelines for securing patient information.

PCI-DSS Level 2 Compliance

Maintaining payment security is required for all entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data. Guidance for maintaining payment security is provided in PCI security standards. These standards detail the technical and operational requirements for organizations accepting or processing payment transactions, and for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions.
