Protecting your privacy is one of our top concerns and priorities. We maintain administrative, physical and technical safeguards to maintain the security of your nonpublic personal information that we obtain or create as required by applicable law. We also restrict access to your nonpublic personal information that we obtain or create to only our employees and others who need to know that information to provide and fulfill our products or services to you. We apply the same privacy practices and policies to our former customers as to our current customers.
What Personal Information Do We Have and Where Do We Get It?
We gather personal information from you and from outside sources for business purposes, including carrying out the requested product or services, responding to customer service requests, administering your account, and sending you newsletters and other service-related correspondence. Some examples of the information we collect from you may include your name, phone number, home and e-mail addresses, driver’s license number, date of birth, social security number, marital status, family member information, and payment information. Also, we maintain records that include, but are not limited to, policy coverages, premiums, and payment. We also collect information from outside sources that may include, but is not limited to, your driving record, claims history, and credit information. Information obtained from a report prepared by an insurance-support organization may be retained by the insurance-support organization and disclosed to other persons.
We may also collect third-party information from you to carry out the necessary services and/or requests. If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.
