Legal Practices & Compliance Strategy

Clear's Committment to You…

Clear has a strict privacy policy in place. It will never sell or distribute client’s information. To ensure that Clear is following its Privacy and Fair Information Practices Policies, Clear has established the following set of checks and balances:

1. Independent Audit:

Clear hires an independent Public Accounting Firm which conducts an independent professional and technical review of Clear's compliance with its own Privacy and Fair Practices Policy. This includes privacy audits of any Clear subcontractors who are collecting and/or maintaining data. The results of these audits are made public.

2. Annual Privacy Report:

The Chief Privacy Officer conducts a yearly privacy and data security report which is presented to Clear’s CEO and Board. This privacy report and any steps to be taken are available to Clear Members.

3. Identity Theft Warranty:

Clear has a strong effective measure in place to protect the security of the limited personal information they collect. In the highly unlikely event that information is stolen from Clear or its subcontractors, they will reimburse any otherwise un-reimbursable monetary cost directly resulting from such Identity theft. Clear will then, at its own expense work towards restoring the integrity of the members financial or other accounts.

4. Privacy Ombudsman:

Clear has contracted an independent outside privacy ombudsman, Law Professor Paul Schwartz from the University of California, Berkeley Law School. He is responsible to deal with member complaints objectively and impartially. Professor Schwartz is empowered to investigate all privacy complaints, gather facts, and respond to members, as well as post responses on Clear’s web site.

5. Notice of Unauthorized Acquisition of Personal Information:

Clear is committed to promptly notify all customers whose information may have been acquired with out authorization. Clear will also notify the TSA.
