We are dedicated to preserving your privacy with tough privacy standards.
We will never give, sell, rent, lease or otherwise transfer your name (or information about you) to any person or entity other than the insurance company you are applying to (which may include outside paramedical firms, investigative agencies which are used in the normal course of insurance underwriting) and those third party firms, including insurance agents and brokers, that we may contract with to perform quote delivery, quote follow-up and insurance fulfillment services for us.
When you provide us with personal information such as your name, address, e-mail and/or phone numbers, we will consider that action as being your express invitation that we, including any affiliated licensed agent or registered representative of the InsuranceInMinutes.com, contact you about insurance via e-mail, telephone and fax, using the information you have supplied, even if you are registered on any state or federal "Do Not Call" list. When you provide us with personal information, you are also granting us your express permission to contact you using standard and public e-mail transmission facilities, which are not secure or private. Where permitted by law, some insurance companies may confirm your information through the use of outside consumer reports, which may include credit score and driving records as is standard practice in the insurance industry.
When you buy insurance from us, you will remain in control of the insurance purchase process and keep it as private, fast, easy and secure as possible.
Required by the federal Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and state privacy law
(State law will apply if it provides more protection to you than federal law.)
How do we protect your privacy?
We restrict access to NPI to our associates who need it for their jobs.
We require anyone outside our corporate family (non affiliates) who perform services for us to conform to our privacy standards. We also require them not to use your NPI for any other purpose.
We verify that any person asking for your NPI is entitled to it before we give it.
We collect your health information only with your written authorization.
We disclose your NPI only as permitted or required by law.
We do not disclose your NPI to others for their own marketing purposes.
We do not reveal your health, character, personal habits or reputation to anyone for marketing purposes.
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your NPI.
What information do we collect?
We need some NPI to determine if you are eligible for our products. Once a contract is issued, we typically only seek NPI when someone asks for more coverage or submits a claim. Some examples of what we may collect:
Data you provide on applications (name, address, date of birth, Social Security number, income, information on beneficiary, as required by the insurance company).
Medical information from health care providers obtained with your authorization.
Information about your policies with us or our affiliates (policy number, coverage, premium, payment history).
As you have authorized: credit reports from consumer reporting agencies; driving records from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles; medical records from the Medical Information Bureau. (NPI obtained from insurance support organizations may be kept by them and disclosed to others. These organizations are outside of our control, and of this Privacy Notice.)
To whom do we disclose information?
We may share your NPI when you ask or authorize us to do so. We also use public Internet networks to e-mail NPI information to you, the insurance company and authorized outside investigative service agencies such as paramedic examiners companies as needed. Also, the law allows certain disclosures without your authorization. We may share some or all of your NPI with affiliates or non affiliates, as permitted or required by law. Examples of who we may share NPI with:
Non affiliates under contract with us, such as paramedic examination, medical records facilities, and customer service vendors and other insurance agencies; affiliates that help us provide services or audit our operations.
A consumer reporting agency to detect or prevent fraud.
A regulatory, legal or government authority, for a compliance audit, information request or under a subpoena or court order.
Affiliates or non affiliates that market our products. The parties we may share NPI with include life and health insurers, insurance agents, and marketing firms. The law does not allow you to opt out of these disclosures. We may share your name, address, product purchased, and policy number for these purposes.
What are your rights?
You have the right to know what NPI we have collected about you; this does not apply to NPI that relates to an actual or possible claim or civil or criminal action. You may ask us in writing to correct any NPI you believe is not correct.
You may ask us in writing for a list of those to whom we have disclosed your medical records within the past two years.
If we wish to disclose your NPI for reasons not normally allowed by law, we will ask for your written authorization. If you give it to us, you may revoke it at any time. Revocation is subject to the rights of anyone who acted in reliance of your authorization before it was revoked.
