Privacy Policy

This Privacy Notice sets forth the information gathering, use, and dissemination practices of Columbia Collection Service, Inc. ("CCSI") in connection with the World Wide Web site located at www.columbiacollection.com (its "website"). This Privacy Notice addresses CCSI's practices regarding information collected only directly through or from its website - it does not address or govern any information gathering, use, or dissemination practices related to information collected other than directly through or from its website, including, without limitation, from or via telephone, facsimile, postal mail, personal delivery, or other or additional offline means or media.

CCSI collects, uses, and stores information on the domain you use to access its website, the Internet address of the site from which you linked directly to its website, and the date and time of your visit to its website. This information may be used to measure the number of visitors to the various pages on the CCSI website, to help make improvements to the information contained on the site, and to better serve site visitors. CCSI also collects, uses, and stores the e-mail addresses of users that communicate with CCSI via e-mail, information knowingly provided by website users, and information regarding which website pages users access.

Personal information contained in e-mail sent by individuals may be used by CCSI to answer questions, follow-up on suggestions or complaints, process requests or transactions, or improve the level of service CCSI provides.

Except as provided below, CCSI does not share any personally identifiable information obtained on its website with or sell information obtained on this website to any company or marketing group external to CCSI and its affiliates. CCSI may, however, share aggregate information with other persons or entities for purposes determined by CCSI to be appropriate.

CCSI may disclose identifiable information (i) to another entity with which CCSI enters or reasonably may enter into a corporate transaction, such as, for example, a merger, consolidation, acquisition, or asset purchase, (ii) to a third party pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process or in response to a request by or on behalf of any local, state, federal, or other government agency, department, or body, whether or not pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process, or (iii) to a third party if determined by CCSI in its sole judgment that such disclosure is appropriate to protect the life, health, or property of CCSI or any other person or entity.

Except as necessary for CCSI to provide the services, information, or products requested by a website user, or except for the disclosures identified in the preceding paragraph, the user may opt out of having his or her personally identifiable information, which has been voluntarily provided to CCSI through or from its website, prospectively retained by CCSI, used by CCSI for secondary purposes, or disclosed by CCSI to third parties, by contacting CCSI via postal mail at the address set out below or at the following e-mail address: consent@columbiacsi.com.

While CCSI may undertake efforts to see that another party to which CCSI shares personal information is under a contractual obligation to use the personal information solely for the purposes for which the information was disclosed by CCSI, CCSI exercises no control over such parties and CCSI is not responsible for their conduct, actions, omissions, or information handling or dissemination practices.

E-mail posted or sent through this website may not be secure against interception by unauthorized individuals. To protect against interception by unauthorized individuals, we will not respond to e-mail requests concerning accounts placed for collection without your express permission to do so. Therefore, if you are communicating with CCSI regarding a debt that has been placed for collection with CCSI, all correspondence regarding that account should be sent by U.S. Postal Service, unless you provide your express permission to communicate with you via e-mail.  Be sure to include your name, your mailing address, the CCSI account number, creditor name, and creditor account number so that we may process your inquiry and respond promptly. Without complete information, we will be unable to respond to your request.
