We may use your email address to send you Service-related notices (including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail). We may also use your email address to send you announcements and information about other products or services (including third party services) that you may be interested in (together, the “Marketing Messages”). You may opt-out of receiving Marketing Messages at any time by following the instructions provided in the Marketing Message. Through your account interface, you may also opt-out of receiving categories of Service-related notices that are not deemed by Assurance to be integral to your use of the Service.
Even if you are not a registered user of our Service, if you email us we may retain a record of such email communication, including your email address, the content of your email, and our response.
We may disclose aggregate non-personally identifiable information (such as aggregate and anonymous usage data, platform types, etc.) about the overall use of our Service publicly or with interested third parties to help them understand, or to help us to improve, the Service.
When you come to the Assurance website, we log your current Internet address (this is usually a temporary address assigned by your Internet service provider when you log in), the type of operating system you are using, and the type of browser software used. In addition, we may keep track of what portions of the website you are visiting. We aggregate this information to help us create a better experience for users of our website. For example: we may upgrade those parts of the website that are heavily visited or optimize the website to work more efficiently with certain operating systems. This is all done without our knowing your name or other personal identifying information. When you visit the Assurance website you are anonymous, unless you chose to identify yourself to us.
While visiting our website you may provide us with documents which contain personal information for you or your clients or customers. Such information might include, but not be limited to, name and birth date. We aggregate this information to help provide you with statistical information related to products offered by you to your clients or customers.
You can be assured that all such information is kept in secured databases. Assurance treats this information as confidential. Assurance will use the information collected solely to satisfy your requests for information. We do not sell, rent, or exchange any of the personal information collected on our website.
How We Protect Your Information
The security of your information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as social security numbers, credit card or bank account numbers) as part of our service, we encrypt the transmission of that information using industry-standard encryption.
Assurance uses commercially reasonable and industry-standard physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your information. For example, we continuously and regularly back up your data in secure SAS 70 audited data centers, and implement firewalls and access restrictions on our servers to secure our network and better protect your information.
Cookies and Web Bugs
A cookie is a small piece of information that a website sends to your computer, which is stored in a file on your hard drive. The next time you visit our website, we may use the information stored in your cookie file to facilitate your use of our website. For example, we may use your cookie file to store a password so that you do not have to input it every time you move to a different section of a password protected portion of our website. A cookie does not tell us your individual identity unless you have chosen to provide it to us. Most cookies expire after a defined period of time, or you can delete your cookie file at any time you choose. In addition, you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie so that you can decide whether to accept or reject it.
A web bug (or web beacon) is a tiny graphical image that is typically on a web page. Somewhat like a cookie, a web bug can tell us information such as what kind of browser is being used and what time of day this page was accessed. Some web bugs can include information such as your IP address. Some technologies will notify you of the presence of web bugs, but browsers typically do not notify you of them.
Our Service is not directed to persons under 13. Assurance does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for an account on the Service. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
