The companies you trust with your business may be storing more information about you than you realize. In order to make transactions fast and to market their products effectively, some companies keep your name and address on file. Other organizations may have your credit card or financial information, Social Security number, or even driver’s license number and other data stored digitally. If companies fail to keep your information safe, they can be held liable and you may have a legal claim against them in Homestead or your community.
