Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is a binding part of the Terms of Use.

This website (the Site) is provided by Assured Guaranty Ltd. (together with its subsidiaries, Assured Guaranty).  In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any individually identifiable information about yourself.  We may collect, store or accumulate certain non-personally identifiable information concerning your use of this Site.  For example, we may collect the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors and, for each IP address, the number and length of visits, pages viewed and browser used.  We may use a log analysis program to determine domain names associated with certain IP addresses and to analyze patterns of use for all or some of the IP addresses we collect.  We may use the information you provide us in aggregate form for internal business purposes, such as generating statistics or developing marketing plans, measuring the use of our Site, and improving the content of our Site.  We may share or transfer such non-personally identifiable information with or to our affiliates, licensees, agents and partners.

There are times, however, when Assured Guaranty may need to obtain personally identifiable information from you, such as your name, address and email address (Personal Information), in particular in connection with the request for materials.  Unless otherwise disclosed to you, the Personal Information we collect will be used by Assured Guaranty (or by one or more of Assured Guaranty's affiliates, licensees, agents or partners) to respond to your inquiry and fulfill any requests for materials.

We use a technology called "cookies".  A cookie is an element of data that, as a result of your visiting our website, will be stored on your hard drive unless you take steps through your internet browser’s privacy settings either to block cookies (or certain types of cookies) or to receive a warning of each attempt to place a cookie, allowing you to block or accept it.  The cookie enables a service we employ to recognize your browser and display our advertising to you on other websites when you visit them.  Cookies are not used by us to store or track any Personal Information from our website visitors.  A cookie does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.  You also have the ability to clear previously placed cookies from your browser.

The Site may contain links to other third-party websites.  While we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites.

This Site is not intended for persons under 18 years of age.  No information should be submitted to this Site by a user under the age of 18 years without the consent of his or her parent or guardian.

As we continue to develop our business, we might sell certain of our assets.  In such transactions, user information, including Personal Information, generally is one of the transferred business assets.  By submitting your Personal Information on the Site, you agree that your data may be transferred to such parties in those circumstances.

We may also disclose any information, including Personal Information, we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.  Assured Guaranty further may disclose information about you to enforce the Terms of Use, to respond to claims of violations of third party rights or to protect the rights of Assured Guaranty.

Assured Guaranty may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If we decide to change the Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy here.  As we may make changes at any time without notifying you, we suggest that you periodically consult this Privacy Policy.  Please note that all such changes will apply to the use of any data that has been collected about you and maintained by us, even if it is collected prior to the time of such changes.
