Additional Notes

Complaint: I filled out paperwork for an order of a breast pump. This paperwork included private information such as my name, address, insurance info, ssn, credit card number with expiration date and three digit code from the back of the credit card. I received a privacy policy that my information would be protected. Two weeks later I called inquiring about my pump and was informed that my papers were lost, they could not find them anywhere in the office. Although they state they think it may have gotten stapled to someone else's paperwork they cannot confirm this which does not give me piece of mind that personal info is floating around somewhere making me susceptible to identity theft. I refilled out paperwork and received a pump and an apology but that doesn't make it OK.

Desired Settlement: I want peace of mind that my private information is not out there, I want my original paperwork found and to be notified when such is done. I would like the company to reeducate their employees on safe practice with such valuable information and a policy in place that ensures an incidence like this will not and cannot happen to others. Should I be a victim of identity theft in the near future because of this negligence I would like Nurturing expressions to have financial responsibility of any loss I endure.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2013/11/01) */ Nurturing Expressions takes client confidentiality very seriously. Immediately upon speaking with our client, an employee brought the matter to the attention of the Operations Manager. The missing file in question was located shortly after in the Billing Department. The file was originally placed in the wrong location by a new employee in training. At no time did the file leave the business site. All of our files are secured in an office with two separate locks which are maintained by management. After the file was located, we attached it to the second set of paperwork the client filled out and it was put in the correct location. The client was called to inform her that the paperwork had been found and that we apologized for any inconvenience this had caused. The Operations Manager met with the staff the same day to discuss the importance of following current procedure of file locations and the importance of protecting the private information of our clients. We will continue to improve our training standards and policies to better aid all of our employees in handling sensitive client information and will address the issue again in our weekly staff meeting.
