Biennial Report Service Benefits
At Northwest Registered Agent, we’re committed to protecting our clients’ privacy. New York Biennial Reports are public record, so we’ve designed our biennial report service to protect your privacy. Here’s how:
In order to preserve your privacy, we will list OUR contact information instead of yours on the report form.
Only the minimum required information will be included.
We will list our IP address – limiting the connection between your cell phone, personal computer, and work computers – this makes it harder for advertisers to follow you.
We will list our bank and credit card information – not yours.
We believe everyone has the right to keep their information private. That’s why privacy is our guiding principle when we create every service and product.
