and utilizes. Our responsibility is to ensure the security of the information in our
care and to maintain the privacy of consumers through appropriate, responsible use.
We provide services based on information about millions of individuals and
businesses. Use of that information is guided by our Global
These Information Values form the foundation for Experian's
belief that information use must benefit both businesses and individuals while meeting
consumers' privacy expectations.
Information policies, built on our values,
more specifically define how information may be used. The policies vary to meet the
legal requirements and consumer expectations in the area in which the information
product or service is being used.
Underlying these policies is Experian's commitment
to provide consumers notice, choice and education about the use of personal information.
Educated consumers are better equipped to be effective, successful participants in
a world that increasingly relies on the exchange of information to efficiently deliver
the products and services consumers demand.
Today, our business clients' needs
and consumers' expectations are constantly changing, and technology is constantly
evolving. Our approach to privacy, rooted in these Global Information Values, enables
Experian to respond to those constantly changing needs and expectations and provides
the flexibility to implement new processes and policies to resolve information issues
in this dynamic environment.
