Privacy Policy

Filer Insurance, Inc. respects the privacy rights of individuals who visit, use and interact with this web site and our agency. Information may be collected during your visit to this site or in your discussions with us in order to allow us to provide insurance quotations and write insurance policies.  We are concerned about treating this information with care, so we have implemented the following policies regarding your personal information.

Collection of Aggregate Information

We collect information that is not personal information about users to measure traffic on the Site.  This information is collected automatically on an aggregate basis (“Aggregate Information”) through the use of a “cookie” or small text file placed on the user’s hard drive by the user’s Internet browser.  The cookie allows us to track the number of hits or visits to various pages on the site.  The cookie is used only during a single connection to the site, and is not used to track user activity after leaving the site.  The cookie is permanently disabled when the user exits the site, and information about individual user is not collected, saved or distributed to others by us except as provided for in this policy.  Aggregate Information helps us understand users’ needs, improve the site, and demonstrate to others the volume and nature of site traffic.  Aggregate Information may be shared with third parties as described in the section called “Information Provided to Third Parties” below.

Collection of Personal information

Contact Information may be obtained and/or retained from users to contact the user by phone or email. This information will not be provided to third parties, with the exception as necessary when a policy is written and the information is given to the insurance carrier of that policy so they will have the contact information as well.

Contact information in the form of email addresses may be used as part of our notification system to update clients or prospects with new information. If any type of group email notification system is used, it will provide the recipient the option to unsubscribe from the system.

For the preparation of insurance quotes and for the writing of insurance policies, we will need to collect other personal information such as addresses, dates of birth, drivers’ license numbers, social security numbers, credit card information and other associated underwriting or policy writing information. This information will only be given to the appropriate insurance company as required by them.

Security of Personal Information

We understand the importance of protecting the personal information of others that our agency may have. We take a variety of steps to keep your personal information secure within our office.  Of course, it would be impossible to guarantee that any information stored electronically is totally secure.

Third Party Websites

This site may have links to other web sites, such as those of insurance companies, that may, in turn, collect personal information. We do not have any responsibility for these web sites and our Privacy Policy does not apply to these web sites.  You should read the privacy policies of those websites prior to using them.

Change To Policy

We reserve the right to and may change this Privacy Policy at any time, and the change will become effective when the revised Privacy Policy is posted on this site.
