Our Privacy Promise
- We do not sell information about you.
- We do not share your information with anyone else for their marketing purposes.
- We use your personal information only to help maintain the business relationship you have with us.
Privacy Notice to Our Customers
As our customer, you trust us to help you achieve financial success and security. We provide this notice because you have a right to know how we protect the privacy of the personal information you share with us. Your knowledge of our privacy principles and practices will confirm the trust you have placed in us.
What Personal Information Do We Collect?
The type of information that we collect depends on the type of product or service you request. This includes:
Information you provide on an application or other form (for example, name, address, social security number, or income).
- Information we get from other sources such as credit reporting agencies and information to verify employment or income.
- Information about your business relationship and history with us.
- Medical or health information you permit us to receive from doctors or other health care providers.
Most of the personal information we collect is obtained from you. We collect personal information needed only to service and manage your relationship with us.
How Do We Use and Disclose Your Information?
The main use of your information is to confirm your identity in the course of business that we perform at your request. We also use your information to underwrite policies or contracts, process claims, and service your relationship with us.
Information may be disclosed to other entities that provide business services to us related to our relationship with you. This includes administrative, claims, or audit services. Examples are your producer/registered representative, broker, or a reinsurance company. Before we disclose your information, these entities must agree to keep it private.
We may also share information within our corporate family to service your business. For example, our business units provide administrative services, policy document preparation and delivery, and claims processing.
If necessary, we disclose information when it is required by law. An example is a routine filing to the Internal Revenue Service (such as a Form 1099). We may also disclose certain information to other entities to help us report or prevent fraud. Examples are reports to a regulatory or law enforcement agency.
What Medical and Health Information Do We Collect?
We may receive medical or health information about you. This may be on an application for insurance or when we process a claim, as approved by you in writing. We do not share that medical or health information among our family of companies. We do not share it with unrelated companies, except as needed to process your transactions. This may be necessary to provide services that you have requested related to your insurance coverage or payment.
How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?
We have policies to maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality of your personal information. Access to personal information is available only to those people who need to know it in order to help service our relationship with you.
Should your relationship with us end, we will continue to follow the privacy policies described in this notice to the extent that we retain information about you. If we no longer need to retain that information, we will dispose of it in a secure manner.
Do You Need to Do Anything?
It is not necessary for you to take any action. This is because we do not share your information except to service the business relationship you have with us. You do not need to "opt-out" or "opt-in" as you may have done with other financial companies.
How Can You See And Correct Your Information?
Generally, you have the right to review the personal information we have about you. You must request this in writing. We will not disclose information we have collected in connection with a claim or lawsuit. If you believe that any of the information we have is in error, you may write us and request a correction. Where justified, corrections will be made.
