I. Personal Information
To provide reliable, quality service PCF must collect certain personal financial, legal, and medical information regarding its clients and potential clients. This is the information that you, your attorney, or third parties provide to us on applications and other forms, by phone, fax, the Internet, or other delivery services.

PCF discloses personal information to certain service providers that are contractually obligated to keep the information we provide them confidential and to use the personal information we share only to provide the services we ask them to perform.
