Our Privacy Policy

We value your privacy

 

Protecting your privacy is very important to us. If you choose to provide us with information, we will take reasonable precautions to keep your Personally Identifiable Information (PII) secure. PII means information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name and Social Security Number, as well as financial, health and other information about you that is nonpublic, and that we obtain so we can provide you with our services.

 

We will keep the information you provide private as required by law. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a better understanding of how we collect, use, or otherwise handle your PII.

 

We may collect personal information about you, another insured on your policy, or a beneficiary when applying for a policy or service. We will only use this information for the specific reason for which it is provided. If you apply for a product or service, we may collect information from your consumer reports, such as your credit report.
