At Glazier Insurance Agency, Inc. we are committed to your privacy.
Personal Information collected?
Glazier obtains most of our information directly from you. The application you complete, as well as any additional information you provide, generally gives us most of the information we need to know. We may also collect personal information about you from any of your other transactions with us, our affiliates, or others. Third party sources of personal information might include, government agencies, consumer reporting agencies, courts, and other public records. The types of personal information we gather depends on the nature of your insurance transaction. For auto insurance, we quite often obtain information from your motor vehicle records. For property coverages, we may send someone to inspect your property and verify information about its value and condition. A photo of any property to be insured might be taken. We may review insurance claims information and other loss information reports, and we may also obtain medical or financial information to adjust some claims. At times we may review personal information contained in consumer reports provided to us by a consumer reporting agency. The agency that prepares a consumer report for us may retain that report and disclose it to other persons as permitted by law.
What do we do with the personal information collected about you?
Personal information that has been collected about you may be retained in both our records and in your agent’s files. We review it in evaluating your request for insurance coverage and in determining your rates. We will also refer to and use such information in our policy records for purposes related in issuing and servicing insurance policies and settling claims. We do retain information about our former customers in our files for Insurance Department market conduct purposes and for use in handling claims submitted to us after policy termination. If coverage is declined or the charge for coverage is increased because of information contained in a consumer report we obtained, we will tell you as required by state law and the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act. We also will give you the name and address of the consumer reporting agency making the report.
How do we safeguard the personal information in our records?
Glazier uses strict measures to safeguard your personal information. Almost all of our information is stored electronically and secured by a firewalled server. The only physical information we keep would be the forms that you are required to sign for application. Our employees’ access to your personal information is limited to those with a business reason for knowing such information. Glazier educates employees so that they will understand the importance of the confidentiality of personal information, and takes appropriate measures to enforce employee privacy responsibilities.
To whom do we disclose personal information about you? We do not disclose any personal information about our customers or former customers, except as permitted by law. That means we may make disclosures to the following types of third parties, if necessary, without your consent:
