OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY

use of personal information so that you can make informed choices
about how your own information is collected and used. This Online
Privacy Statement reflects the The Path of Life policies covering
personal information collected at this website on or after the

We believe that information used responsibly benefits consumers and
the economy, whether it is information we house on behalf of consumers
conducting transactions or information we collect on behalf of our
business clients. For example, we use consumer information every day
to ensure fast and accurate processing orders.
In addition, The Path of Life strives to better serve our customers by
offering goods and services that we believe fit their needs and
interests. When identifying an opportunity, The Path of Life may use
consumer information it has collected in an effort to identify
consumers who may be interested in that opportunity. Consumers rely on
The Path of Life for safe and reliable service. The relationships we have
developed through the years have been established based on mutual
trust. Each day we and employees and agents strive to reinforce our
commitment to our clients and consumers. Central to that commitment is
ensuring that we abide by a set of privacy policies, which are
outlined below. These policies guide us in the collection and use of
information as well as employee responsibilities in protecting your
privacy. We use personal information about consumers only in a manner
consistent with these policies.
