1. What Information Do We Collect?

Through the Website, we may collect two types of online information: non-personal information and personal information.

Non-Personal Information

Non-personal information is information that does not identify an individual personally and cannot readily be associated with a particular individual.

Certain identifying information is automatically collected when you visit the Website. We may collect identifying information that allows us to track the number of visitors we receive and the way they navigate through the Website. The types of identifying information collected include the date and time you accessed the Website, the page or pages you visited and images you accessed, the web site you arrived to the Website from and the web site that you depart to as well as the IP address, operating system and browser version and type of the computer being used to access the Website. While it may be possible to correlate this information to particular individuals, we do not generally do so. We may share this aggregated information with other third parties. We reserve the right to drill down into anonymous demographic information in order to investigate unlawful conduct and/or breaches of this Web Privacy Statement and the Terms of Use.

Personal Information

Personal information is information that identifies an individual personally or can readily be associated with a particular individual. Personal information may in certain circumstances include such information as name, address, phone number, email address. When any of the aforementioned personal information is combined with credit history, date of birth, Social Security number, drivers license number, credit or debit card number, policy or claim information and health information, such personal information is referred to herein as “sensitive information.”

Through the Website, we may collect personal information, directly and indirectly, from our agents, from insured employers, from employees of insureds and from third parties, such as consumer reporting agencies.

You may supply us personal information about yourself or others through the Website in many different ways, including when you take action such as registering for use of the Website, contacting us through various links and entering data into various screens.

4. How Do We Safeguard Personal Information We Collect?

While we strive to protect personal information collected through the Website, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

Some of our employees, agents and service providers may have access to personal information in the course of doing their jobs, which includes underwriting policies, processing claims, developing new products or advising customers of our products and services. They are expected to keep this information in confidence and share the information only with those who have a business reason to know. They are prohibited from making unauthorized disclosure of personal information that we obtain about individuals. Employees who violate our policies on privacy may be subject to disciplinary action.

Notice of Information Sharing Practices

We may collect personal information about individuals covered by workers compensation insurance policies for which we serve as administrator. The term “personal information” means individually identifiable information from which judgments can be made about an individual’s character, habits, avocations, finances, occupation, general reputation, credit, health or any other personal characteristics. We may obtain such personal information using various sources other than the individual and techniques such as employer reporting, private investigators, reports from managed care and medical providers, index bureau reporting, Medicare query reporting, and child support lien reporting databases. We may disclose this information without your prior authorization as follows: a) to an insurance institution in order to detect or prevent criminal activity, fraud, material misrepresentation or material nondisclosure in connection with insurance transactions, or for either the disclosing or receiving insurance institution to perform its function in connection with an insurance transaction involving the individual; b) to a medical care institution or medical professional for the purpose of verifying insurance coverage or benefits, informing an individual of a medical problem of which the individual may not be aware, or conducting an operations or services audit, provided only such information is disclosed as is reasonably necessary to accomplish the foregoing audit; c) to an insurance regulatory authority; d) to a law enforcement or other governmental authority in order to prevent or prosecute the perpetuation of a fraud against us, or if we reasonably believe that illegal activities have been conducted by the individual; and e) to a group policyholder for the purpose of reporting claims experience or conducting an audit of the related insurance operations or services, provided the information disclosed is reasonably necessary for the group policyholder to conduct the review or audit. In certain states, you may request access to the personal information we have about you by properly identifying yourself to us and making a written request for such information, provided that said information is reasonably locatable and retrievable by us. If requested by you, we will also provide you with a list of the persons and/or institutions with which we have shared your personal information within two years prior to your request. In addition, you may request a correction, amendment or deletion of recorded personal information by contacting us in writing regarding your request. Within thirty days of receiving said request, we will either accept or reject your request and notify you of our decision. If we decide not to grant your request, we will also notify you of the reasons for it. If we correct the information, we will forward the corrected information to others as required to ensure that your personal information is accurate. If we do not grant your request, you may file a statement with us describing what you believe to be the correct information and a concise description of the reasons you disagree with our decision. We will include your statement with your personal information when we share that information with others as described above. Information obtained from a report prepared by an insurance-support organization may be retained by the insurance-support organization and disclosed to other persons. An “insurance-support organization” means any person who regularly engages, in whole or in part, in the practice of assembling or collecting information about natural persons for the primary purpose of providing information to an insurance institution or agent for insurance transactions, but shall not include agents, governmental institutions, insurance institutions, medical care institutions and medical professionals.
