At E.B. Cohen, we recognize the importance of respecting the privacy of our policyholders and want to make sure that you know the steps we take to protect the privacy of the customer information we collect and, in some cases, disclose.
We encourage you to read the following information about how we collect, disclose and protect your information. No action is required on your part.
1. What information do we collect?
The member insurance agencies that underwrite our insurance products collect only information necessary to underwrite and provide accurate insurance rates, and to maintain and improve customer service and claims handling for our policyholders. We obtain nonpublic personal information about you, our policyholder, from you in your request for a quotation of rates, applications, policy transactions, including claims, and other interactions with us, as well as from credit reporting agencies, motor vehicle departments, claim history reporting agencies and other third parties. For property insurance, we may send someone to inspect your property and verify information about the value and condition of your property. The information collected may include, for example, your name, address, birth date, phone number, e-mail address, driver's license number, social security number, accident/violation history, information about vehicle operators, mortgages, lien/lease holders, vehicle information, credit card information, credit report information, occupation and whether you own or rent your home. We obtain and use this information only in accordance with state and federal law.
2. How do we use collected information?
The information we gather helps us identify who you are, manage our relationship with you, develop products and services that meet your needs, provide you with accurate rates and provide excellent customer service. We do not sell your information to other companies for any reason.
3. What information do we disclose?
We may disclose information to affiliates and unaffiliated third parties for the purpose of servicing customers' insurance needs, performing business services for us or as otherwise permitted or required by law. For example, at times we disclose information about our policyholders such as name, address, telephone number, policy number and coverages to service providers for the provision of specific services such as inspections and appraisals after a claim and marketing our insurance products. For purposes of fraud prevention, we also participate in several insurance industry supported databases of reported claims and additional driver information. We may disclose information to organizations conducting actuarial or research studies and to companies that perform research and marketing services on our behalf.
4. What security procedures are used?
We maintain technical and organizational safeguards to protect the confidentiality of nonpublic personal information about our policyholders against (i) unauthorized access or disclosure and (ii) accidental loss, alteration, or destruction. We permit only authorized employees, who are trained in the proper handling of policyholder information, to have access to that information. We strive to ensure that the companies we use as our business partners support our commitment to privacy protection in their handling of personal data about our policyholders. We require service providers and others to keep you information strictly confidential and to use the information solely on our behalf and as directed by us, and we require them to protect this information as we would. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect and safeguard your nonpublic personal information.
