Collected personal data
“Personal Data” is data that identifies, or that could reasonably be used to identify an individual.
Additionally, as part of our business operations, we obtain the records of companies under our examination under the authority provided by state regulators as their appointed third-party auditor or directly from government agencies. Many of these records contain Personal Data that may include:
- Contact details, such as name, address, telephone number, or email address;
- Protected Health Information, such as information relating to an individual’s past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition, information relating to the provision of health care to an individual, or information relating to the past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care to the individual;
- Financial and transaction Data, such as credit or debit card numbers, or bank account information; and
- Other Personal Data, such as date of birth, Social Security Number, or Employer Identification Number.
Personal Data does not include Data that has been aggregated or made anonymous such that it can no longer be reasonably associated with a specific person.
