Accordingly, this Privacy Notice explains our current policies and practices regarding your nonpublic personal information in our current records.

Types of Information We Collect About You

We collect nonpublic personal information about your employees in order to evaluate and serve their insurance needs, develop and offer new products or services, and fulfill other operational, legal and regulatory requirements. This information includes:

  • As required or permitted by law.

Measures We Take to Protect Your Information

We maintain appropriate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the information we collect about each employee.  Our policies restrict access to such information to employees and individuals who need to know the information to service the account or provide products and services. Employees who violate these confidentiality requirements are subject to our disciplinary process.

We use virus protection, intrusion detection and other security-enhancing software, directory management and password protection on database access for employees, compliance audits, backup and recovery procedures, employee training and other procedures to help safeguard your nonpublic information. We also require third parties engaged to provide support services to us to conform to our privacy standards.
