1. What Personal Information Do We Collect?
- Information You Provide. We receive and store information you enter. For example, when you search for a car insurance quote you supply information such as your name, gender, marital status, birthday, address, phone number. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests for car insurance quotes, improving our website, and communicating with you. In addition, if you choose, we may share your information with other companies who provide goods or services that you are interested in. Please see the “opt-in/opt-out” selection in Section 4 of this policy. If you choose to add drivers to an insurance quote, we will ask for the additional drivers name, gender, marital status, birthday, relationship to first driver, education and occupation. CheapCarInsurance.net does not store this information and the information is only used for the sole purpose of fulfilling a quote request.
We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personal information.
- Other Information: Every computer has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. IP addresses of computers used to visit this site are noted. In addition, we automatically collect other information such as browser types, operating systems, and the URL addresses of sites clicked to and from this site.
2. How Do We Use Your Information?
- Special Offers. We may send you special offers from time to time, unless you choose to “opt-out” of receiving such offers. In addition, we may also send you special offers from other companies. Again, you may “opt-out”. If we send you offers from other businesses, we do not share your personal information with them. The offers come directly through us. Please see the “opt-in/opt-out” selection at the end of this policy.
- Business Transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that we are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.
- We share your personal information with other companies so that they can offer car insurance quotes. If you do not want us to share your personal information with these companies, please do not submit a request for a quote.
We may also disclose your personal information
- as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process
- when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request,
- to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.
3. How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?
More often than not, other companies underestimate the importance of your personal privacy and security, which is why we have gone to extensive lengths to ensure your safety while shopping for services on our website. Our #1 priority is to keep you protected, and it starts when you get your auto insurance quote from us. We do not sell your information to third parties for independent use. We probably hate SPAM more than you do.
We maintain the highest level of security across our website using the latest security systems available today. This includes up to 256-bit SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption; and that’s above your average 128-bit encryption you typically see. We encrypt your personal information at the highest standards possible. We use a firewall to protect against unlawful intrusion and we limit access to your information on a “need to know” basis. We also do not collect or store your personal financial data.
But, no system can guarantee absolute security, just as the finest lock cannot guarantee physical security. However, we take every reasonable precaution to assure that your data is secure.
- We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
- We use encryption to protect your information contained in our customer list.
