What personal information do we collect?
Examples include your name, address, social security number, driver’s license number, credit card information, vehicle information and contact information, such as phone number and email address. Typically this is provided directly by you as part of the application process. We may collect your personal information from a consumer reporting agency. Examples are credit-based insurance scores, coverage and claims histories and motor vehicle reports. We may collect your personal health information from medical providers and the Medical Information Bureau when researching and applying for certain types of insurance such as life, health, disability and long-term care.
How do we use your personal information?
Only as permitted by law and only as necessary to administer our business. We will not sell your personal information to anyone, but we must share it with certain third parties for quoting, underwriting, placing, issuing, servicing and marketing insurance and financial products and services. Examples of third parties include insurance companies, brokers, general agencies, managing general agencies, affiliated businesses and vendors acting on our behalf. We will maintain a record of your information, except for credit card information, which we delete after your purchase has been authorized.
