What Security Procedures Do We Use to Guard Against the Loss, Misuse, Alteration, or Theft of Information While That Information Is Being Submitted to Agency Over the Internet?
To help ensure the security of your personal and financial information that you submit to this site, (other than via an email message), we use security software to encrypt all sensitive personal information before and during its transmission through the Internet. We only allow information to be submitted for transmission if your browser is compatible with our security software. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If held in our databases, your information will be held in an encrypted form as well, and our data is only transferred to our insurance companies and other affiliated partners in encrypted form.
Unless explicitly stated that we are using any secure E-mail protocols, E-mail messages are not secure. Our security software does not, and cannot, encrypt regular E-mail messages. E-mail messages traveling through the Internet are subject to viewing, alteration, and copying by potentially anyone on the Internet. You should exercise discretion with respect to the submission of any personal or financial information via email. If you are concerned about the security of your communication, we encourage you to send your correspondence through the postal service or use the telephone to speak directly to us. We are not responsible for the security or confidentiality of communications you send to us through the Internet using email messages. Your use of E-mail absent any explicit statements that it is secured E-mail, serves as your agreement and consent to use unencrypted E-mail in communications to us and you understand and accept the inherent risks of using unencrypted E-mail messaging.
