For more than 100 years, Equifax has been a catalyst for commerce by bringing businesses and consumers together. Equifax also provides products and services that bring businesses together with other businesses. We have built our reputation on our commitment to deliver reliable information to our customers (both businesses and consumers) and to protect the privacy and confidentiality of personal information.
As part of that commitment, our approach to privacy focuses on these five principles.
Quality. At Equifax, data is at the core of our business, and we believe data-driven knowledge drives progress. Equifax is committed to maintaining and using data that is accurate, relevant, and timely.
Stewardship. Equifax recognizes that collecting data carries with it certain responsibilities. We will be transparent about how we use and safeguard data in our possession.
Discretion. Equifax understands our data powers important decisions. We will share data only for legitimate purposes, respecting the importance of data in the lives of individuals.
Partnerships. Privacy is a core concern when we share or receive data. We will evaluate both sources and recipients of data for alignment with our values.
Designing for Privacy. Equifax recognizes privacy is an important societal value. Equifax will take privacy into consideration as we grow our products, services, and standards.
