What Is Personal Information?
Personal information is any information that identifies you or your members as individuals. Personal information includes names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and identification numbers; the content of messages sent from you to your members; your financial information, such as credit card or checking account information, either from you or your organization. For some services, this may include cell phone provider, street address, member identification number, and other information to properly segment them for certain notification calls.
Why Does Teletask Ask For Personal Information?
In order to properly handle the billing for your account, we may need checking account or other financial information. In order to deliver voice, text and e-mail messages to your Members, we need means to identify them and segment them for certain notification calls.
How Does Teletask Safeguard My Personal Information And Keep It Confidential?
Each and every one of our employees is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all personal information to which they have access. As a condition of employment, our employees are required to sign a confidentiality agreement that binds them to this responsibility-- even after they leave Teletask. We keep our employees informed about our policies and procedures for protecting personal information and reinforce the importance of compliance.
In addition, Teletask has comprehensive security controls to protect against the unauthorized use, alteration, duplication, destruction, disclosure, loss or theft of-and unauthorized access to-your personal information. When we receive personal information about you or your members (such as name, address and phone number), it is stored on our secure servers.
We ensure the physical, organizational and electronic security of your personal information, limited access to relevant information by authorized employees only, and passwords, customer codes, and the SSL Certificates in place to ensure data encryption or scrambling of electronically transmitted information. We follow standard internet and database security practices and keep up-to-date with industry changes. We also have strict procedures in place for destruction, deletion or disposal of personal information when it is no longer required for the purposes set out in this Policy-or by law-to prevent unauthorized access to such information.
We may use other companies to provide services to you on our behalf. In such cases, we have agreements in place that hold these companies to the same high standards of confidentiality by which we are governed and require that any information provided by us be kept strictly confidential and used only for the purposes stated in the agreement.
Teletask Has A Strict Policy Of Not Releasing Personal Information About Our Clients Or Their Members Unless:
You have consented to the release of personal information. For example, you or your members are part of a larger organization and want them to be able to reach you.
We have a legal obligation. For example, we may release personal information about a client to legal authorities in cases of the public's interest, criminal activity or the detection and prevention of fraud.
If we release information for any of these reasons, we keep a record of what, when, why and to whom such information was released.
Under no circumstances do we sell, rent or give lists of our clients or their members to others for their use.
How Does Teletask Keep Your Personal Information Accurate?
