Notice of Privacy Policy

LEOPOLD KORN, P.A., a Florida professional association (“Leopold Korn”) values its customers and is committed to protecting the privacy of personal information. In keeping with that philosophy, we have developed a Privacy Policy, set out below, which will ensure the continued protection of your nonpublic personal information and inform you about the measures Leopold Korn takes to safeguard that information.

Who is Covered

We provide our Privacy Policy to each customer when they select our office as settlement agent. Generally, this means that the Privacy Policy is provided to the customer at the closing of the real estate transaction.

Information Collected

In the normal course of business and to provide the necessary services to our customers, we may obtain nonpublic personal information directly from the customer, from customer-related transactions, or from third parties such as lenders, appraisers, agents, surveyors or other similar entities.

Access to Information

Access to all nonpublic personal information is limited to those employees who have a need to know such information in order to perform their jobs. These employees include, but are not limited to, those in departments such as intake, curative, bookkeeping, administration, closing and post-closing.

Information Sharing

Generally, Leopold Korn does not share the nonpublic personal information it collects with anyone other than lenders, insurance agents and underwriters, as needed to complete real estate settlement services and issue its title insurance policy as requested by the consumer.  Leopold Korn, however, may share information as required by law in response to a subpoena, to a government regulatory agency or to prevent fraud.

Information Security

Leopold Korn, at all times, strives to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the personal information in its possession and has instituted measures to guard against its unauthorized access. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with federal standards to protect that information.
