SUPREME COUNCIL OF THE ROYAL ARCANUM
PRIVACY COMMITMENT OF OUR MEMBERS
Title V of Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act enacted by Congress in 1999, as implemented by the various state legislatures, requires the adoption of a privacy protection policy to safeguard non-public personal information. The following is a privacy commitment which has been approved by the Executive Committee for the benefit of our members.
You have provided the Royal Arcanum with certain non-public personal information, such as your name, age, residence, marital status and social security number. If you have applied for life insurance, you also provided us with employment and medical information and authorized us to obtain further information concerning your health history, mode of living, avocations and other personal characteristics. Based on this authorization, information necessary to underwrite your applications has been collected from others.
We maintain the highest level of confidentiality concerning your non-public personal information. The employees at the Home Office have been trained in the careful handling and protection of such information. Oversight of these matters is rigorous and our employees understand that improper disclosure of non-public personal information is a serious matter with severe consequences.
We are a fraternal benefit society that has always been committed to protecting the privacy of our members. There are no affiliated financial institutions or third party, non-affiliates which have access to your non-public personal information. We never sell lists of names and addresses of our members to any vendor of goods or services.
Access to your records is limited to those Home Office employees who are working with your file. Should we be required to disclose information in connection with civil or criminal matters, or by a governmental authority such as an administrative or judicial order including a search warrant or subpoena we must comply, but such instances are exceedingly rare.
Organizations assisting us with our operations are required to adhere to the same strict standards of confidentiality as we do. Finally, please be assured that the information in your file will always be available to you for modification, correction or change when appropriate. We do not disclose any non-public personal information about our members or former members, spouses or beneficiaries to anyone, except as provided by law.
