Collection, Use, and Sharing of Data
” and Section 13 titled: “
Annex – Symbility Property Applications
”, CoreLogic states that both companies may share (and potentially sell
) your Personal Information to other companies for various purposes.
CoreLogic has access to loads of information on consumers collected either directly or indirectly. With the possession of so much data on individuals, companies become targets of corporations making huge profits from data. And likewise, it's pretty much common for such companies to collect and sell consumer data to businesses willing to pay the price. If you’re not content with the use and sale of your Personal Information, most companies have agreed to stop the sale of your Information at your request. Luckily, with the law on our side, you can request that CoreLogic prohibits the sale of your Personal Information and even delete that Information from their databases.
Opting Out and Deleting Your Personal Information
CoreLogic organized a simple process for persons looking to opt out of the company’s data-selling campaigns or to have their Personal Information deleted from the company’s databases. We should be thankful for the existence of current US laws which grants us the right to exercise control over our Information collected by companies. You can make the request via communication with the companies using one of the following means below. Please remember that you have to make a separate request to Symbility Solutions.
Send both CoreLogic and Symbility Solutions an email requesting to stop the sale of your Personal Information or request to have your Information deleted. The email addresses to send the request are:
Compose a letter addressed to Symbility Solutions requesting to stop the sale of your Personal Information or request to have your Information deleted. Mail the letter to the following address:
