Absolute Bail Bonds respects your concerns about privacy. This notice explains how Absolute Bail Bonds treats the nonpublic personal information of potential, current, and former consumers.
Prior to issuing a bail bond, Absolute Bail Bonds and/or its affiliates, collects certain personal information about each bail bond applicant (“you”). The information is obtained from a variety of sources, such as from you in person, by telephone, or over the internet, from applications or other forms submitted by you, from credit/consumer reporting agencies, from others when Absolute Bail Bonds investigates claims, and from your transactions with Absolute Bail Bonds (such as claims, premium payments, account balance, and history). Information collected may include your name, address, contact information, driver’s license, social security number, employment information, credit rating, and other information necessary for Absolute Bail Bonds to assess the risk of the transaction, protect against fraud, or generally to effect, administer, or enforce the terms of the bail bond transaction.
If you choose to submit an inquiry and/or application for bail either in person or by any communication systems such as telephone, fax or e-mail, we will request that you provide personally identifiable information including but not necessarily limited to, name, address, telephone number, social security number, date of birth, employment information, and income.
This information is collected and is used only in a manner appropriate to process your inquiry or application. For example, we may use this information to investigate your credit, employment, and income to assist in our decision-making process.

(Examples may include but not be limited to accountants, underwriter personnel, auditors, and/or claims related investigation personnel, including but not limited to in house or retained counsel and fugitive recovery agents, and accounts payable associates). We convey to our employees the need to protect your information, and require our service providers to keep consumer information confidential and to use it only to provide the services we have asked them to perform.
