Privacy Policy

Privacy Statement

In order for us to serve you on your insurance and financial services needs, you have entrusted us with non-public, personal information. We are committed to safeguarding your privacy; and, in compliance with Title V of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and the laws of the State of New Jersey, we are providing you with this notice of our Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT:

The information we obtain depends upon the type of insurance or other financial product you request and may include information we receive directly from you; from insurance companies, brokers or managing general agents; from medical professionals; from underwriting and claims experience reporting companies; and from credit reports or other investigative consumer reports.

INFORMATION WE MAY DISCLOSE:

In the course of our general business practices, we may disclose the information that we collect about you or others without your permission, in accordance with the law, for the following reasons: to enable a third party to perform a business, professional or insurance function for us; to an insurance or financial institution, agent, broker or credit reporting agency to perform a function in connection with a transaction that you have requested or to detect or prevent criminal activity, mis-representation or fraud in connection with a transaction; to a regulatory authority, law enforcement or other governmental authority in order to protect our interests in preventing or prosecuting fraud, or if we believe that you have conducted or plan to conduct illegal activities; to a group policyholder for the purpose of reporting claims experience or to assist in handling a claim on your behalf; to another entity or person as required by law or under subpoena to produce information; or to a third party to assist us in marketing our own product or services. We prohibit any third party from further sharing such information.

We do not sell or otherwise provide lists of our customers to third parties to market any non-financial products or services.

YOUR RIGHT TO ACCESS AND AMEND YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION:

You have the right to request access to the personal information that we record about you. You also have the right to request corrections to the information in our possession. Any request for information must be submitted in writing to the office listed in this privacy policy and must include your name, social security number and that recorded information that you would like to access. We may charge a reasonable fee to cover our costs. We will contact you within thirty days to arrange providing you with access to the information requested. If you are requesting a correction to your information, we shall make that correction within 30 days or notify you that we refuse to do so and the reasons for the refusal, which you will have an opportunity to challenge.

OUR PRACTICES REGARDING INFORMATION CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY:

We restrict access to non-public, personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your information.

OUR POLICY REGARDING DISPUTE RESOLUTION:

Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to our privacy policy, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

RESERVATION OF RIGHTS TO DISCLOSE INFORMATION IN UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES:

In connection with the potential sale or transfer of its interests, our agency reserves the right to sell or transfer all of your information to a third party entity that concentrates its business in a similar practice or service; agrees to be our successor in interest with regard to the maintenance and protection of the information collected; and agrees to the obligations of this privacy statement.

INSURANCE COMPANIES AND OTHER FINANCIAL PRODUCT PROVIDERS:

As an independent insurance agency, we place the product or service that you have requested with an insurance company or other financial institution. In accordance with the law, each of those companies should provide you with their privacy policy. We urge you to review those policies carefully to determine if you need to take any additional steps to prohibit any release of your non-public, personal information.

WE WILL KEEP YOU INFORMED:

As a valued customer, we respect your privacy concerns. We will provide you with an annual notice. In the event of changes in our privacy policy, we will provide you with an updated notice. You can also review the privacy notice at our website at any time.
