If you submit any information to any of those sites, their privacy policies will apply to that information.

Our Other Services

Smart SecureSM

In addition to insurance, through one or more contracted suppliers, We offer alarm and smart home services– called Smart SecureSM – as a risk reduction tool.  When you sign-up for or use Smart Secure, you may provide certain information, including Personal Information, to Our supplier(s) or to Us, or We and Our supplier(s) may otherwise receive it from your Smart Secure devices, your computer, or your other electronic devices that you use to access, browse, download, receive or otherwise use the Smart Secure services (each a “Personal Device”).  
The information you provide or which Our supplier(s) and We may otherwise receive is used to coordinate installation and personalize, administer, and deliver your Smart Secure services.  It may include, without limitation, home size; system configuration; login or access credentials; sensor names; device types, settings, and performance; account information; schedule; mode; automation settings; electrical usage or consumption; heating and cooling information; light or other fixture settings; and usage and alert logs (collectively “Smart Secure Services Information”).  

In addition, as described below, the Smart Secure services may include video or audio recording capability or capture location-based information.

Video and Audio Recordings

If you purchase video monitoring or video monitoring services such as Visual Verification, a connected doorbell, camera, image sensor, or other connected device or wearable or subscribe to two-way voice, you may enable Our supplier(s), including your central monitoring station, to record, store, view and process video and/or audio recordings from this equipment (collectively, “Monitoring”). This Monitoring may include capturing and sending to you portions of this data as part of a notification or analyzing the data to identify motion or other events. This information from your Monitoring equipment may be processed to send alerts to you. In addition, if you have recording features enabled on these video products or services, video and audio data recordings from your device will be captured, processed, and stored by the applicable supplier(s). You may be able to access those recordings.

Data protection and privacy laws may impose specific responsibilities on you and your use of security cameras, connected doorbells, and other devices with recording capabilities. You alone are responsible for ensuring that you comply with any applicable laws. For example, you may need to display a notice alerting visitors to your home or business that they may be recorded using security cameras and other devices with recording capabilities. We take no responsibility for your compliance with these laws.

Location-based Information

Some features of the Smart Secure services use location-based information to enable geofencing capabilities (e.g., to send arming reminders or adjust the thermostat when you are a designated distance from home). When you opt-in to activate these geofencing services, location information will automatically be collected and stored by Our supplier(s) from your Personal Device or vehicle you designate which is capable of producing location data (e.g., mobile or GPS device). This location information may include your current location or places you recently visited and may be used by Our supplier(s) in aggregated form only for internal purposes, such as to improve the quality of service provided. Do not enable geofencing features if you do not want location-based information collected by Our supplier(s).

Our Smart Secure supplier(s) may provide some or all of this information to Us for legally permissible purposes in connection with providing the Smart Secure services or as needed to provide insurance discounts or otherwise administer your policy(ies) with Us.

We Do Not Sell Your Personal Information

We do not sell Personal Information or Smart Secure Services Information as a stand-alone product or service. If We pursue the sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution, or transfer of all or part of Our business, trade, or assets, We may share information about you with prospective buyers under non-disclosure agreements. We may sell, assign or transfer any or all Personal Information collected through Our Websites or through conducting the business of insurance – but not through Smart Secure – to an acquiring party. Your use of Our Websites and provision of Personal Information to Us demonstrates your consent to the sale and transfer of your information under such circumstances.

Security

We Are Serious About Security

We work hard to prevent unauthorized access to your information. We have appointed a Chief Compliance Officer who is responsible for privacy, and We educate Our employees, insureds, and distribution partners about the importance of privacy and information security. We also use appropriate security measures in Our efforts to safeguard and protect the confidentiality of your information, prohibit the unlawful disclosure of it, and limit access to it. We sign contracts with Our service providers and suppliers who have access to your Personal Information that require them to use appropriate security measures.

Our information security program focuses on six key areas:

  • Proactive cybersecurity, including cyber threat hunting, ethical hacking campaigns, and periodic cybersecurity program assessments;
  • Reactive cybersecurity processes that we regularly test using incident response and disaster recovery exercises, based on realistic scenarios;
  • Endpoint controls that provide data encryption, threat detection, malicious software defense, and data backups;
  • Identity and access management controls that include multifactor authentication and additional safeguards for staff with elevated privileges;
  • Employee cyber risk awareness programs that leverage general education, role-based training, and simulated phishing attacks; and
  • Third-party risk management and security standards that include due diligence, continuous monitoring, and cyber risk scoring.
How We Treat Social Security Numbers

In some instances, We may need to collect, other than through e-mail, and use Social Security Numbers (“SSNs”). We safeguard and protect the confidentiality of SSNs, prohibit the unlawful disclosure of SSNs, and limit access to SSNs to those employees or service providers who require access to that information.

Children

We do not knowingly seek information from or about children under the age of 13 online, and We do not knowingly market any of Our products or services to children under the age of 13 online. If We become aware that a child under the age of 13 is attempting to or has submitted information to Us via Our Websites, We will delete the submitted information.
