Privacy Notice

Privacy and security are our highest priority - ensuring electronic access to state government information and services while maintaining privacy is a guiding principle of our program. Personal data in our possession is maintained and used in ways that respect individual privacy. Catalis educates its employees about the importance of protecting personal information and privacy, and only authorized employees have access to personal information.

The purpose of this Policy is to notify you of:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected through our website;
  2. The organization collecting the information;
  3. How the information is used;
  4. With whom the information may be shared.
  5. The kind of security procedures that are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control;

Information we collect through the FLADPP Site.

If you fill out the "Contact Us" form, your name and other identifying information will not be sold or shared with any person or organization. Your e-mail address or telephone number may be used by authorized FLADPP employees to contact you concerning your comments, questions or complaints.

How your information is used.

When a DPP enters a DPT into the database, including a customer’s name, phone number, social security number, and other personal information we use this information to help DPPs establish customer eligibility for a DPT.

The identifying information contained in the database for DPPs, which is authorized under section 560.404, Florida Statutes, is confidential and exempt from section 119.07(1), Florida Statutes, except that the identifying information in the database may be accessed by other DPPs to verify whether any are outstanding for a particular person and by the Office of Financial Regulation for the purpose of maintaining the database.

We do not sell or rent information to third parties for marketing programs or for any other purpose.

Limited distribution of personal information.

At the direction of a DPP (when the "Submit" button is clicked), the information provided to us will be processed through the FLADPP system and the appropriate response will returned to the DPP. All of the DPPs in our network operate under federal and/or state laws and regulations. FLADPP will treat information sent indirectly through a DPP in the same manner it treats the information submitted directly through the website.


This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Catalis uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to safeguard your sensitive personal information during on-line transactions. Using this widely accepted form of encryption, your transaction is secured from your personal computer to the Comptroller's Office computers processing your request, and the processing computers are located behind a secure firewall. This method protects your information.

This notice should not be construed in any way as guaranteeing, or warranting as fail proof, the security of information exchanged between DPPs and Catalis.

Any changes to our privacy promise will be communicated through the website at least 30 days in advance of implementation. Information collected before changes are made will be secured according to the privacy policy in effect prior to the change.
