Essent Terms of Use

The Essent Terms of Use details important information about what you can expect of us and what we expect of you when you use Essent products and services.

The Terms of Use is comprehensive and covers a wide range of topics including privacy, how we handle sensitive data, and what we do to protect sensitive data. The Terms also includes the rules for customers using Essent software.

The Terms of Use is composed of:

  • Master Services Agreement (MSA), a comprehensive agreement for using Essent software products. The MSA says what's expected of customers and customers can expect of us while they're subscribed to Essent software.
  • Privacy Policy, which details how we collect, store, and process data, including Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
  • Data Breach Notification Policy, which details the steps we take to protect sensitive data and what we will do in the event that sensitive information is breached.

Essent is an early adopter and proponent of clear, concise privacy policy and terms of use and welcomes the high standards established in May 2018 by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
