Why we collect personal information
Harvard collects and uses your personal information to give you superior customer service when you form your company and every year thereafter until you close or cancel your company. As your Delaware Registered Agent we are required by law to maintain your "Contact Person's" address. We will use this information to inform you of future Delaware Franchise Tax due dates and offer to fulfill these services for you for a fee. We will inform you of annual Registered Agent fees due. We will send you any service of process packages we may receive as your agent. If courier fees are necessary to forward Service of Process we will charge a service fee. We do not give or sell your name, email address, address information or any other personal information to any third party for marketing purposes and will reveal such information ONLY if required by law to disclose such information. Every effort to secure your data against criminal outside disclosure is being taken over the internet. Every name and address in our database is initially and periodically checked against the U.S. Treasury Department's SDN list. It is your responsibility to notify us of any change in address information so we can send you tax compliance notices, registered agent invoices and service of process.
Our Pledge to Protect Your Information & Data Security
We will NEVER sell, rent, lease, or share your personal information with any third party without your express permission. Our records are password protected by biometric finger print scanners and monitored by security personal that are on site. Your data is monitored by a 16 camera infrared system, backed up by independent propane power supplies, generators and a state of the art digitally controlled power management system. Your records are stored in secure facilities with 24 hour surveillance and in case of a regional disaster we can start servicing your requests within 48 hours at our location of choice. To learn more about how we protect your information please ask one of our team members to provide you with a more detailed explanation.
How we collect personal information
We collect information about you in several ways. For example, we might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, call us to make a purchase or request service, or participate in an online survey. In addition, when you submit your Delaware Franchise tax on-line through www.payfranchisetax.com, we collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.
To save you time and make our web services even easier to use, some areas of the Harvard website allow you to create an "Harvard ID" using your personal information. Here's how it works: Simply fill out a brief profile—your name and email address—then choose a password for security. The system saves your information and assigns you a personal Harvard ID. Next time you order something from Harvard, you can simply enter your email address and password—the system will automatically look up the information it needs and give you access to our MyControlDesk features.
At times we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your information. We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public interest.
How we protect your personal information
Harvard safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Harvard uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To place on-line orders with Harvard, you must use an SSL-enabled browser. This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.
Collecting other personal information
When you browse Harvard’s website, you are able to do so anonymously. Generally, we don’t collect personal information when you browse — not even your email address. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.
