If you are unwilling to provide this required information, you will be unable to complete the requested transaction.
Use and Disclosure of Information
The information you provide to us will be used to respond to requests you may make for services. Some or all of this information may be added to your permanent account record and may be used for research purposes.
In addition, we may use elements of this information in the following situations:
- We may transfer the information to AEP’s affiliates and subsidiaries, unless such transfer is prohibited by law;
- We may transfer the information as part of a merger, consolidation, acquisition, divestiture or other corporate restructuring (including bankruptcy);
- We may make the information available to third parties who are providing the product, service or information that you have requested (but not your password);
- We may make such information available to third parties who are providing services to AEP (for example, providing the information to third parties performing computer-related services for AEP);
- We may use the information to communicate with you about products and services that may be of interest to you.
- We may disclose the information if we believe that disclosure is required by law or regulation or in response to a subpoena or other order of a court or other governmental agency.
Also, AEP reserves the right to share any aggregated information (i.e., non-personally identifiable information) with any third parties for any reason, unless prohibited by law.
AEP takes reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as it is transferred to us, through the use of Web technologies such as the Secure Sockets Layer and others.
