COMPANY POLICY
The privacy of your non-public personal information is important to us. We use safeguards to protect your privacy and confidentiality. This policy discusses information we collect and the manner in which it is used. We reserve the right, at any time, to add to, change, update or modify our privacy policy simply by posting such change, update or modification on the Stewart Sites. Any such change, update or modification will be effective immediately upon posting on the Stewart Sites.

SECURITY
We use good-faith efforts to maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your non-public personal information. However, while we strive to protect your personal information, we do not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

INFORMATION COLLECTION
If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Stewart Sites and read the information contained on the web pages, we may gather certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We may automatically gather the Internet domain (for example, "companyx.com" if you use a private Internet access account), IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web) from which you access Stewart Sites, and the date and time you access Stewart Sites, and the pages you visit.

We may collect non-public personal information from you when you voluntarily provide personally identifiable information to us through Stewart Sites, such as when ordering services/products and accessing account-specific or other profile information. We may collect information about your transactions that we secure from our files and from our affiliates. We may collect information that we receive from consumer reporting agencies. We may collect information that we receive from others involved in your transactions, such as real estate professionals or lenders. We limit use of such information to the purposes for which the information was provided, except as described below. However, we reserve the right to use such information for marketing/product development research and other similar purposes and/or to contact you regarding additional services or products that you may find useful.

We may also release your information to others when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements, or (iii) protect the rights, property or safety of Stewart, Stewart's users or others.

If you send an electronic mail (email) message that includes personally identifiable information, for example, in an email message containing an inquiry, we will use that information to respond to your inquiry. Remember that email is not necessarily secure against interception or other disclosure. If your communication is very sensitive, or includes information such as your bank account, charge card or social security number, you should not send it in an email.

We may use "cookies" to improve our service to you. Cookies may help us recall a previous visit. The cookies we use do not collect personally identifiable information, and we do not use them to determine your identity.

Cookies are small files stored in your computer’s hard drive by your web browser. When you access Stewart Sites, our computer server will access these cookies so that it can recognize your computer, and make using the website easier for you. For example, cookies allow us to remember your username and password to save you having to retype it every time you visit Stewart Sites.

For our European customers: on May 26, 2011, a new directive was passed by the European Union (EU) that requires all companies to obtain “free specific and informed consent” from all European visitors to their website in order to capture cookies. The law requires “opt in” functionality, only allowing cookies to be placed on computers where the user has given his or her consent in advance.  Once consent is obtained we will not need to request permission again in the future unless you delete your cookies. If you believe that you qualify under the EU Cookies Directive but did not receive the opportunity to opt-in or opt-out at our Stewart Sites, please submit an email to webmaster@stewart.com and include the website you are visiting, so we can identify and resolve the issue.

If you are not comfortable with this use, you may configure your browser to be notified when cookies are to be received and to provide you with the option of refusing cookies.  However, please note that if you have "disabled" cookies in your browser this way or you have “opted out” you may not be able to use certain features on the Stewart Sites.
