Associates Inventory Service - Privacy Policy

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for GT Quest Inc. / DBA Associates Inventory Service. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this web site. It will notify you of the following:
  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the web site, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  4. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We request information from you on our contact/order form(s). To buy from us / use our services, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.
We believe, as does the insurance industry, that you could receive insurance settlements faster when you can identify what was lost, stolen, or destroyed. A detailed inventory can help verify losses and proof of ownership.
Privacy and confidentiality are a concern anytime someone enters your home or business. We understand and are sensitive to your concerns. We respect that each person has a varying comfort level, and we will do our best to put you at ease. We insure with a written guarantee that your information will be kept strictly confidential and will never be sold or given to any person or company for any reason, without exception.
We are professionals and never take your confidence for granted. We treat all customer information with the highest level of confidentiality; from your name, to your jewelry, to your guns and sofas.
Our Inventory Specialists have been properly screened and trained. We identify you and your home with a unique and secure number ensuring privacy and security should your personal CD be lost or stolen.
Without your express written permission, your information is never shared or discussed with anyone for any reason; without exception.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent your information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order or perform an inventory.
Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about important product usage tips, specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the order processing web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately via telephone at 406-245-3676 or via email.

Associates Inventory Service - Our Guarantee to You

Protection of your information is our number one priority. A professional home/business/retail inventory can only provide peace of mind if you can be sure your documentation is 100% secure. Our services are only as good as our guarantee, which is why we provide a written guarantee of security at the time of service.

The following steps insure your information will never be used against you:

  • No inventory documentation is compiled or stored on computers with internet or network connections. Your inventory is never subject to computer hacking or stored on the internet.
  • Once the customer and secured copy materials have been completed all computer resident files of the documentation are deleted.
  • Completed inventories are assigned a numeric value and do not contain the personal information of the client. Documentation is provided separately that contains the information of the inventory owner.
  • External photography of the property is contained in the inventory owner documentation (see above). There is no way to match the internal inventory to a home address or picture.
  • All releases of inventory information require a signed release statement from the inventory owner or those given power of attorney to do so.
  • Secured copies of inventories are stored off company property in a legal office vault or safe deposit box.

It is the client's responsibility to secure any documentation released for police or insurance companies once the documentation is no longer needed. AIS does not collect and secure documentation that has been released.

Associates Inventory Service - Security

We don't ask for your trust .... we earn it!
In today's world, letting someone in your home can be a scary thing. Just showing them everything you own can make you feel vulnerable. Associates Inventory Service commits to you the following:
  • All of our Inventory Analysts undergo a screening process and are known to us to have no criminal background.
  • All of our employees are periodically drug tested. We maintain a zero tolerance policy!
  • Before entering your home, our analyst will provide you with proper identification and, at your request, we can even establish a secure password at the time we make your appointment.
  • While performing your home / business inventory, we insist that an adult member of your family be present with our analyst, at all times.
  • At no time and under no circumstance is your data shared with anyone outside of our company.
  • At no time is your home inventory data stored on a computer network, or on the internet, where it might be vulnerable to hackers.
At AIS, we take security very seriously. Before you open your door to anyone, we hope that you will do the same!
How do we protect your identity?
As an AIS client, you are assigned a confidential AIS Membership number that we use to cross-reference all information about your property. This information is stored in our secure database for your protection. You are then notified of your AIS Membership number when you receive your comprehensive inventory package. We suggest that you keep this number as well as the inventory prepared for you in a secure place, such as a safe or safe deposit box.
If at any time you lose or misplace your AIS Membership number, simple give us a call, and after asking you a few key questions verifying your identity, we gladly email you the information.
