What information may be collected? Unless you choose to provide information to us, we will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit our site, other than general information for web site performance assessment purposes such as the number of visitors to different sections of the site, the web address from where they connected to our site, the domain name, the date, or the time and duration of their visit to help make our site the best it can be.
Should you decide to request a quote for Disability Insurance, you will be asked to complete an online disability insurance quote request form. With your authorization, we will share this information with insurance companies or their affiliated agents in order to obtain the quote information you request. Carriers use personally identifiable information (such as name and address) in combination with other information you provide about your insurance needs to provide an insurance premium estimate. However, the criteria for ratings may vary between participating insurance companies, with each carrier placing a different emphasis on particular items of information you provide. Where permitted by law, your personally identifiable information may be used to verify information that you have provided, to request a credit report or review your claims history from a third party. As your application proceeds, GotDisabilityInsurance.com Insurance Services, Inc (GotDisabilityInsurance.com) may be updated on your progress.
No Other Disclosure to Unaffiliated Third Parties Unless you expressly give us permission to do so, or unless required by law, we do not willfully disclose your personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties, other than the above-described parties and to insurance companies when and if you apply for insurance or to companies that develop quotes for you. With respect to third party sites to which you may connect through this site, any choices regarding the handling of your personal information will be described on such parties’ web sites. You should refer to the privacy statements for those sites for more information.
Cookies: GotDisabilityInsurance.com may gather anonymous information and aggregate demographic information which does not personally identify you. We use this information to better understand our site usage patterns and we may share this information with third parties for marketing or technology purposes. Generally this information is collected through the use of “cookies”, internet protocol addresses or other numeric codes or tags used to identify a computer. Again, any disclosure of anonymous information and/or aggregate demographic information will not reveal any personally identifiable information about specific users.
A ‘cookie’ is a message given to a Web browser by a Web server. The browser stores the message in a small text file on the same drive that the browser is installed on. The message is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. It will not be used to help track user’s aggregate data from sites other than our own. The only cookie-based data that we track is activity on our own site concerning demographics and site usage analysis. The user may need to have cookies enabled in order to use some parts of the site. We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.
Correcting any inaccuracies in nonpublic personally identifiable information Within the quoting and application request processes, you are able to change your information by returning to the previous page via the back button of the browser, or by verifying and editing the information prior to submission. You have the right to see and correct any personal information we may collect about you either through us or through the procedures outlined by each individual insurance company to which you may apply for insurance. If you believe any of the information we have collected about you is erroneous, we would appreciate your assistance in making corrections. If you believe that information that an insurance company may have about you is incorrect there are procedures to bring that to their attention and you should contact them directly. Upon request, we will provide you with the contact information for any insurance company.
