We at Carolina National Insurance Agency value our relationship with our past, present and future clients. The privacy of your personal, non-public information is fundamental to the confidential nature of our relationship. Insurance, along with other financial services, requires the gathering and sharing of some of your personal information with others in order to produce the products and services that you expect from us. Our policies and practices for protecting your personal, non-public information are as follows:
Where Do We Get Information?
- Information is supplied by you on applications and through interviews
- Information is gathered by inspections, including photographs of your property
- Information is accumulated through past transactions such as payments and claims
- Information may be gathered from other sources, such as credit reporting agencies, government agencies and other sources
The nature and type of information varies with different insurance products. Every effort is made to restrict the information gathered and shared.
What is Our Policy for Disclosure of Non-public Information?
We may disclose non-public, personal information we collect from you to insurance companies for underwriting purposes and other reasons, and to our third-party agency management software company, which hosts our agency management software system on-line. These disclosures are essential to operate our agency, and are held in strict confidence by our vendor. A copy of its privacy statement is available upon request. These disclosures will only be to the extent permitted by law. We require any entity to protect your information’s confidentiality and to use it solely for the purpose to which it is disclosed.
What Are Our Information Security Practices?
We restrict access to non-public, personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products and services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards against unauthorized use of your non-public, personal information.
Our policies and practices may change from time to time. We will endeavor to keep you notified periodically as to our current policies and practices. You may contact us at any time if you have questions or concerns about our procedures. We will gladly provide you with a copy upon request, or you can view our latest Notice of Privacy Practices and Policies on our website, www.cniagency.com.
