How do we protect the information we collect?
We protect your PII in the following ways:
Our website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes, known vulnerabilities, and malware (software designed to interfere with the normal functions of a computer or computer system). This helps make your visit to our site as safe as possible.
- Your personal information is saved on secure networks and is accessible only to a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and who are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive information you supply via the ThriftCart website is encrypted both on disk and via Secure Socket Layer (SSL/TLS) technology in communication.
- We implement a variety of security measures when you enter, submit, or access your information to maintain the safety of your personal information.
For your convenience, we may store selected financial transaction information for more than 60 days so that we can expedite future e-recording requests or other services and fees, and to automate the billing process.
We understand that there are laws in the United States and other countries that protect PII. We will implement privacy or data protection policies and procedures that comply with applicable law and this Policy. We will not use PII other than for the purposes for which it was originally given.

When do we disclose information to third parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your PII to outside parties except when doing so is necessary for us to perform the services we contract to do for you.

What if there’s a data breach?
In alignment with fair information practices, if a data breach occurs, we will notify you via email, as well as on our website, within seven (7) business days of our identifying the breach.
We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
