You also authorize iVEZT and the Custodian (as that terms is defined in the iVEZT Program Agreement) to use information about you that is publicly available or available directly or indirectly from credit reporting agencies in verifying your identity, performing background checks, investigating suspicious activity, or for any other purpose for so long as your Program Account is open or any amount is owed to IVEZT or the Custodian.

We will not sell, rent, or trade your Personal Information to any third parties, and will not otherwise disclose your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties except as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process and 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.
There are certain circumstances, outlined below, in which we may share your Personal Information without further disclosure to you. From time-to-time, we hire other companies to perform certain business and technology related functions (e.g., database maintenance and payment processing). In the case we hire another company to perform a function of this kind, we only provide them with the minimum information they need to perform their specific function. iVEZT maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable federal laws, rules, and regulations to guard your Non-Public Personal Information.
If iVEZT is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
If the Personal Information on file for you changes, or if you no longer desire our Service, you may correct, update, amend, delete/remove, or deactivate it by emailing Customer Support [email protected]
We will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you Services. We will continue to retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
You may decline to provide Personal Information to iVEZT. Declining to provide Personal Information may, however, disqualify you for Services and Site and Application features that require certain Personal Information.
