WHAT DOES AMERICAN FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS
DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Why?

Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.

  • Your contact information, including first and last name, mailing address, phone numbers, and email
  • Social Security number and income

  • Account Numbers and account balances

When you are no longer our customer, we continue to share your information as described in this notice.
