How Does Xerox Handle Personal information?
Xerox keeps personal information confidential. While we, at Xerox, are pleased to offer convenient services online, we are also mindful of our responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of the personal information we receive.
Our agents and partners protect personal information.
When a customer purchases online from Xerox it may be necessary to transfer personal information to an independent Xerox-authorized agent or partner, who then fills the order. Xerox requires that its independent agents and partners handle personal information with the same concern for personal privacy as Xerox.
Whenever Xerox transfers personal information to its agents and partners, it is with the understanding that the information should be used for the sole purpose of fulfilling the customer's request and that the information should be kept confidential and secure at all times.
In some instances, Xerox or one of its authorized agents or partners may need to share the personal information with an unaffiliated third party for the purpose of completing an order or providing a service. The same principles of using personal information only for the use for which it was provided and keeping information confidential apply.
