Privacy Notice to Our Customers:
Categories of Information That We Collect:
We collect most of the information for your insurance application from you and from the servicing of your policy. Depending upon the nature of your coverage, we may collect non-public personal information about you from other sources such as consumer reporting agencies, state motor vehicle departments, loss information reports, property inspection companies, other insurance companies and others as allowed by law. In a claim situation, we may also collect information to assist in adjusting the claim.
We use this information to underwrite your insurance, adjust your claim or to provide you with the services that are normal to an insurance operation.
Under What Circumstances Do We Disclose Information:
We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone except as permitted by law. This means that under certain circumstances information can be disclosed to third parties without your authorization. For example: We may disclose information as your insurance agent; to consultants who perform business or insurance functions for us; to independent claims adjusters, auto appraisers, investigators, and attorneys who need information to settle your claim; to businesses that provide underwriting and actuarial support; to organizations involved in collecting data to help in the detection of insurance fraud or criminal activity in connection with insurance transactions; to law enforcement or other governmental authorities to protect our legal interests or in cases of suspected fraud or illegal activities; to medical care institutions or medical professionals to verify coverage or conduct an audit of services; to insurance rating organizations or state regulatory agencies who are involved with the regulation of insurance pricing and producers; to lien holders, mortgagees or other parties who have a legal interest in your policy; and to authorized individuals as ordered by court documents.
Our Policies and Procedures For Protecting Your Privacy:
We restrict access to information about you to the referenced third parties and to employees who need to know that information to provide you with our products or to provide you with the benefits or services under them. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with state and federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information. We work with Insurance Companies that maintain contractual agreement with each such third party to whom information is disclosed that will require the third party to use the information only for the specific purposes for which it is disclosed and that will require the third party to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
Access to Your Information:
You have the right to obtain certain items of information we have collected about you, and to request correction of information if you feel it is inaccurate. If we agree, we will correct our records accordingly. If we do not agree, we will communicate this to you. You should submit your written request to us at the address shown below.
