Customer Privacy Is Our Business - We value our relationship with our customers and are dedicated to providing them with exceptional service and competitive product offers. As part of our dedication to servicing their insurance needs, we are committed to protecting the confidentiality of nonpublic personal information about our customers. This Privacy Notice will help you understand what type of information we collect about insured individuals, how the information we collect is used, and what measures we take to protect that information.

What Information We Collect And How We Collect It - Depending on the type of product, we collect nonpublic personal information about insured individuals that may include:

  • address,

  • telephone¬†number,

  • social¬†security¬†number,

  • account¬†information,

  • income,

  • employment,

  • health¬†status,¬†and

  • other¬†personal¬†information¬†relevant¬†to¬†their¬†coverage.

 

We collect¬†such¬†information primarily¬†from¬†information¬†we¬†receive¬†from individuals on applications or other forms.¬†We may also collect information through telephone conversations or other electronic means, such as internet ‚Äúcookies‚ÄĚ (data stored on a computer by an internet browser when you use the internet to access our website) that may be used to track website usage, remember passwords customers create, and provide customers with website content specific to their needs and interests. We may also obtain information from third parties such as employers, non-affiliated insurers, physicians, hospitals and other medical providers.

 

How Information Is Protected - We restrict access to nonpublic personal information to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to our customers. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal and state regulations to guard such information. Information about insured individuals is accessed by our employees only when such access is necessary to conduct our business. For example, we may access information to offer other compatible products or services we provide, to process customer requests, and to administer our products or services. All employees are required to maintain the confidentiality of nonpublic personal information and to follow policies we establish to secure such confidentiality.

 

Additionally, we require third parties to whom we disclose nonpublic personal information, or who receive or handle such information on our behalf, to adhere to our standard of privacy protection and to establish information security procedures.

 

Disclosure - We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone, except as permitted by law. Information will only be disclosed for such purposes as conducting and auditing our business, administering the business of affiliated organizations, responding to requests from government authorities, or as authorized or requested by an insured individual. Such disclosures include, but are not limited to:

The purpose for the request may be to prevent fraud, conduct an audit of¬†our business¬†practices,¬†or for any¬†other reason¬†for which¬†the government entity is legally permitted to request information.

  • Servicing organizations - we may provide information to servicing organizations such as TPAs, reinsurers, attorneys, accountants, actuaries, underwriters, and¬†other such organizations¬†to¬†enable¬†them to provide business services for us.

 

We do not share, trade, sell, exchange or in any other way disclose nonpublic personal information except as stated above or to otherwise conduct the business of insurance.
