Intuit Tax Freedom Project Privacy Statement

At Intuit, we place the highest importance on respecting and protecting the privacy of our customers. Our most important asset is our relationship with you. We want you to feel comfortable and confident when using our Web site. Therefore, we would like to share with you the following principles that govern our information practices and other privacy aspects of our Web site. Throughout this policy, we refer to information that personally identifies you as "personal information."

We protect your information

We work to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration by using industry-recognized security safeguards such as firewalls, coupled with carefully developed security procedures to protect your information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration. Our employees are trained and required to safeguard your information. Additionally, we use internal and external resources to review the adequacy of our security procedures.

We tell you how we use your information

When we ask you for information, we will tell you, or it will be clear, what we need to know to fulfill your request and how the information you provide us will be used. For example, if you order a product or register for a service from us, we will ask you for your name and contact information such as, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address. In addition to responding to your request, we may use your contact information to tell you about products or services we think might interest you or to invite you to participate in a product or service-related survey. Because of the financial nature of our business, our Web sites are not designed to appeal to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly request or receive any information from children.

  • We do not sell or rent your personal information to anyone.
  • We do not share your personal information with anyone outside of Intuit for their promotional, including marketing, use.

We tell you about our relationships with third parties
We have limited relationships with third parties to assist us in servicing you, for example, by notifying you when services become available or conducting surveys. These service providers are contractually required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide them. The contracts outline the appropriate use and handling of your information and prohibit third parties from using any of your personal information for purposes unrelated to the product or service for which they've been contracted. Vendors are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them. We may disclose or report personal information in limited circumstances where we believe in good faith that disclosure is required under the law. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities, to comply with a legal process such as a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or a law enforcement request.

We tell you how we use Web technology

We give you choice and control

We may use your contact information to tell you about other products we think might interest you. However, if you don't want us to contact you for promotional purposes, you can tell us when you provide the information. Your contact preferences only apply to marketing contact. We may need to communicate with you regarding the usability of your product or critical messages relating to your service or software or legally mandated notices relating to your service.
