2 – Information Envisioning Access collects
Envisioning Access uses Google Analytics, Google AdWords conversion tracking, and Google Website Optimizer to assess its website’s performance and content.

This is done in order to manage our communication effectively and to give you the best experience by tailoring our communication according to your interests.

• send your letter so that it reaches the creditor within 60 days after the first bill containing the error was mailed to you.
