We generally collect Personal Information in two ways: 1) information you provide to us, and 2) information we collect automatically, as described further below.
We collect your name, email address, phone number, state and zip code when you request a quote through the Site or use the “Contact” feature on the Site for purposes of obtaining insurance coverage. We may collect some or all of the same information if you speak to or otherwise interact with (e.g., by email or text) with one of our customer service representatives. In order to match you with available insurance options, we may further collect your full address, birth date, social security number, Medicare/Medicaid coverage status, and names of your dependents. We do not collect payment card or bank account information; any payments for insurance are made directly to the insurance carrier. It is not necessary to disclose personal medical information to seek insurance coverage and we do not intend to collect or retain any such information that you may bring to our attention.
We may also obtain personal information about you from third parties, including, service providers and lead sellers. This information may include name, address/location (state and/or zip code), email address, phone number, gender, birth date, Medicare/Medicaid coverage status, IP address, and/or lead identification number.
Whenever you interact with the Site, we, as well as our service providers, may use assorted technologies, such as cookies and other technologies, that automatically or passively collect data about how the Site is being accessed and used. This data may include browser type, unique number assigned to identify the device, operating system, application version used to access the Site, click path taken through the Site, your use of features or applications within the Site, and other usage information (“Use Data”). This information helps us manage, improve and customize our Services, including the Site’s features and functionality, and may be used to identify you like personal information.
HOW WE USE PERSONAL INFORMATION.
We may use your Personal Information for one or more of the following purposes:
“DO NOT TRACK”; OTHER TRACKING. We do not honor “do not track” requests for the Site sent from a browser, but third parties (other than our service providers assisting with making the Services available) do not have authorization from us to track your use of the Services or track what other activities a user may have engaged in before or after using the Services (for example, using a different website).
SECURITY. We use reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect personal information against loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, but no online or mobile communication is guaranteed to be 100% secure.
YOUR PREFERENCES. You can update your preferences regarding how we contact you. If you receive a text message from us to coordinate follow-up, you may always text STOP to opt out. If you receive emails with products or offers that may be of interest to you, you may opt out of marketing communications by unsubscribing within the email. Please note that you may continue to receive emails with information about requested insurance coverage, even if you opt-out of marketing emails. Feel free to contact us with any other requests or preferences, including to update or change your personal information. See “CONTACT US” below.
