Here's an update from the Web site of Verified Identity Pass, owner of Clear, addressing some questions about its shut-down. Lots of people are concerned about the personal and financial information that the company collected in processing members for their cards, incidentally.
From the company:
"What will happen to my personal information?
Applicant and Member data is currently secured in accordance with the Transportation Security Administration’s Security, Privacy and Compliance Standards. Verified Identity Pass, Inc. will continue to secure such information and will take appropriate steps to delete the information.
Will I receive a refund for membership in Clear?
At the present time, because of its financial condition, Verified Identity Pass, Inc. cannot issue refunds.
