“Cookies” and “Clear Gifs”

“Cookies” are small files that are stored by your web browser to help a particular system recognize you and the pages you visited in a website. Our website uses cookies to make your online experience more convenient. For example, we may use a cookie to store your account information between sessions and to maintain information about the quotes you’ve requested during your session. Additionally, we may use data from cookies for a variety of internal purposes, such as studying how users navigate our website. We do not collect any personal information from cookies. Further, no other information we collect from cookies can be linked back to your personal information. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can set yours to refuse cookies. Even without a cookie, you can still use most of the features on our website, including obtaining quotes and applying for an insurance policy.

“Clear gifs” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies that are used to track the online movements of website users. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller than cookies. We do not collect any personal information from clear gifs. Further, no information we collect from clear gifs can be linked back to your personal information. We use third party web analytics services to track and analyze anonymous usage and volume statistical information from visitors to help us administer our website, analyze trends, improve our websites performance and to report website traffic.

To secure your information, we have put in place commercially suitable physical, electronic, managerial and biometric (facial recognition and fingerprint authentication) procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect on our Application.

Nonetheless, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically on our Application, and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.
