Agency Privacy Notice

Independent Insurance Agencies, like other professionals who advise on personal financial matters, are now required by federal law to inform clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. Insurance agents have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by this law. We have always protected your right to privacy with respect to confidential information acquired by us for use in representing you. This notice informs you of our privacy policy and describes how we treat information that we receive about you.

Some information that we receive, with your authorization, will come from a third party like the Department of Motor Vehicle, Mortgage Company, Attorney or Credit Bureau.

All information this agency receives is held in strict confidence. This nonpublic information is only released to persons or firms that need to know, in the course of our due diligence, while obtaining the best coverage at the best cost.
