Last update: April 24, 2009

We are required by the law to provide you with a copy of our Privacy Policy each year. If you have previously notified us about your privacy preferences, as described in Section 4, it is not necessary to do so again unless you decide to change your preferences.
We Respect Your Privacy
Our mission is to provide you with superior products and services, along with the peace of mind knowing that the security of your personal information is our top priority. We understand your concerns about guarding information about you and your Account. We want to assure you that we have taken steps, and will continue to take steps, to safeguard that information.
This Privacy Policy describes our efforts to meet these objectives. It includes a summary of the following important information:

• A listing of the personal information we collect;
• The circumstances in which we may share information with others;
• The ways we safeguard the confidentiality and security of information; and
• The steps you may take to limit our sharing of such information with others. See Section 4 for complete details.

Please read our Privacy Policy carefully. It will help you understand how we collect and share information.

1. What Personal Information Do We Collect?
To serve you better and manage our business, it is important that we collect and maintain accurate personal information about you. We obtain this information from applications and other forms you submit to us, from your dealings with us and others, from consumer reporting agencies and from other sources, such as our Web sites. For example:

• We may obtain information such as your name, address and date of birth from applications and other forms you submit to us.
• We may obtain information such as Account balances, payment history, your use of your Account and the types of services you prefer from your transactions and other dealings with us and others.
• We may obtain information such as the balances of your loans with other lenders and your payment history with others from consumer reporting agencies.
• We may obtain information such as your Internet service provider, your email address, your computer's operating system and Web browser, your Web site use and your product and service preferences from your visits to Web sites.

2. Is Personal Information Shared with Others?
We limit the sharing of information with others. Many of the offers you receive for products and services are provided directly to you from us. For example, a retailer that accepts the iCard may come to us with a special offer forCardholders Cardholders, such as a discount certificate or product upgrade. After careful consideration of the nature of the offer and the company, we will create a list of Cardholders who may be interested in the offer based on certain characteristics. We will send the offer directly to those Cardholders on behalf of the retailer by, for example, including an in their monthly billing statement or mailing the offer ourselves. We control the information used to make the offer; we do not share the list or any information about our Cardholders with the retailer. However, please understand that if you do receive this type of offer from us and choose to take advantage of it, the retailer may then learn information about you because only Cardholders with certain characteristics received the offer.
There are, however, circumstances in which we may share the information we collect about you, as described in Section 1, with other companies in order to provide you with access to products and services and to service your Account effectively, as detailed below. We require these companies to adhere to our privacy standards and to use this information only for the limited purpose for which it was shared. We do not allow them to disclose it to others without our prior approval.
