We have two levels of protection for you, but let’s start at where most other sites end – at a passive, don’t-really-have-to-do-anything level.
- We guarantee we will not sell, give, or distribute your information to anyone else. Period. But that’s so easy, because we don’t have to do anything to accomplish this goal. It’s completely passive. And it’s what most sites promise you. However, we take active steps to protect you. We actually do something... taking it to the next level…
- We actively protect your information from theft – that includes both electronic theft and physical theft. This is done through a variety of means, including data encryption, password protection on all stored files and directories, limiting access to both physical and electronic files, and keeping paper documents under lock and key.
A step up
Now, we’d protect you regardless, because that’s just us. Wouldn’t have it any other way. But there is another reason we go the extra mile to protect your information.
Unlike some websites that have privacy policies in place, they are under no legal requirements to do so. If they lie or fail on their promise, there’s not much you can do. But recall, we are licensed insurance agents, and because of this we are under legal and regulatory guidelines.
Since we may gather confidential about you at times (health conditions, SSN, driver’s license, etc.), we must, by law, keep your information private. If we don’t, the state reacts by taking our license away. Goodbye business, goodbye profession, goodbye reputation, and goodbye to the ability to buy food. It’s serious stuff, and we’re serious about it. We like to eat.
When we say your information is held in the strictest confidence – that is exactly what we mean. We don’t sell it, we don’t give it away, and we make sure no one else does either.
