On March 28, 2018 AccessLex learned that on March 23, 2018, a vendor they use to help provide student loan processing services inadvert sently sent a copy of certain loan files, to another business that was not authorized to receive them. Shortly after they learned of the inadvertent file transfer, we contacted managers of the second business that received the files. The second business confirmed it had deleted the transferred files and agreed that the appropriate manager would sign a sworn statement confirming it had deleted the files and retained no copies.The information involved included names, driver’s license numbers, and Social Security numbers.
