About This Policy
WorkCompOne is committed to protecting your privacy and maintaining your trust. The following describes the personal information we collect about you, how we use it and the measures we take to protect it. This replaces any earlier versions we may have given to you. - UPDATED 9/27/12
What information do you collect about me?
We collect information about you to quote and service your insurance policy. This is called "Nonpublic Personal Information" if it identifies you and is not available to the public. Depending on the product, we collect it from some or all of the following sources. We have provided a few examples for each source, but not all may apply to you.
Who might get information about me from you?
We will share information about you only as permitted by law. We will not share your Nonpublic Personal Information with other companies for their marketing purposes without your consent. There is no need to "opt out" or tell us not to do this.
Disclosures include those that we feel are required to provide insurance claims or customer service, prevent fraud, perform research or comply with the law. Recipients include, for example, our family of insurance companies, claims representatives, service providers, consumer reporting agencies, insurance agents and brokers, law enforcement, courts and government agencies. These parties may disclose the information to others as permitted by law. For example, Consumer reporting agencies may disclose Transaction Information received from us to other insurance companies with which you do business.
Where permitted by law, we may also disclose Application or Transaction Information to service providers that help us market our products. These service providers may include financial institutions with which we have joint marketing agreements.
How do you protect my information?
We restrict access to your Nonpublic Personal Information to our employees and others who we feel must use it to provide our products and services. Their use of the information is limited by law, our employee code of conduct, and written agreements where appropriate. We also maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information.
What about information I post in your support community?
WorkCompOne.com is both an online insurance agency and a community. We allow website visitors to interact in online public spaces in our community. Please use common sense and good judgement when posting in these community spaces or sharing your personal information with others on WorkCompOne.com. Be aware that any personal information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by others, or could be used to send you unsolicited messages. WorkCompOne generally does not remove content from community spaces, and your posts may remain public. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to post in community spaces on WorkCompOne.com.
How can I review and correct information you have about me?
Do I have control over my information?
To correct information about you, send a written request as described above, explaining your desired correction. Within 30 business days, we will either make the requested correction or tell you why we will not. We cannot correct Consumer Report Information, such as your credit report. To do this, you must contact the consumer reporting agency that provided it. If we make your requested correction, we will notify you in writing. We will also notify anyone named by you who may have received the information within the previous two years. If required by law, we will also notify others who may have given it to or received it from us. If we refuse to make the requested correction, you may file with us a concise written statement about why you object, including the information you think is correct. Your statement will then become part of your file. It will be sent to the same persons to whom we would send a copy of any correction or change.
Is there additional information for website visitors?
Yes. When you visit our websites, we use the information we collect to provide services to you. We use website information to help understand what you want so that we can enhance your online experience. For example, if you start an insurance quote on our website, but decide to finish it later, we will save your information so you can pick up where you left off.
We may use advertising companies to display our ads on websites. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to websites, together with non-personally identifiable information about your purchases and interests from other online and offline sources, to provide ads about goods and services of interest to you. In addition, we may share website usage information with these companies to manage and target ads and for market research. We and our ad companies may note some of the pages you visit on our site through Web beacons. While serving ads to this site, our ad companies may place or recognize unique cookies on your computer.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to reject all cookies. In most cases, you can do this by changing the settings on your browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.). Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's "Help" menu to learn how to modify its settings to reflect your cookie preferences. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not have access to many features that make your Web experience smoother, and some of our services may not function properly.

Why do you ask for my email address?
When you quote or buy insurance on our website, we collect your email address so that we can send you emails concerning your transactions with us, and other information we think you'll find useful. Some of these messages are required, service-related messages for policyholders. Examples of service-related messages include, but are not limited to: a welcome/confirmation email when you complete a quote application, notification of a purchased policy, or correspondence with WorkCompOne’s support team. These messages are not promotional in nature. You may not opt-out of receiving service-related messages from WorkCompOne, unless you are no longer a customer.
Other messages are not required and you can control which optional messages you choose to receive by changing your settings in your account. For example, as a policyholder, WorkCompOne may also send you messages related to certain features on the site or your activity. WorkCompOne may also send you news or updates about changes to our site or services. By default, policyholders will receive these messages via email, but you may choose to opt-out of getting certain emails under your account settings.
WorkCompOne may also offer optional email newsletters. You must opt-in or subscribe to begin receiving newsletters, and subscription is available to both customers and non-customers. You may subscribe or unsubscribe from optional newsletters under your subscription settings or by following the instructions contained in the newsletter emails.
To ensure you get our emails, our service provider or we may receive confirmations when you open them or click through email links. These confirmations may also show whether your email application supports graphics, so we can tailor our messages to you. We will share your email address with your selected agent or broker.
We will not share your email address with other companies for their marketing purposes without your consent.
What about website security?
Our security measures help ensure that your data is secured and encrypted, so that others cannot access it while in transit. We limit access to our servers and require our employees to adhere to high standards of ethics and integrity in performing their jobs. We use a secure server and security protocol to safeguard information you provide during the purchase process. Our secure server uses a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to interact with you when you provide personal information during the purchase process. We handle your information via 256-bit encryption. Every secure page on our websites has a digital certificate by RSA Data Security/Secure Server CA. This is shown via the site certificate that resides on all secure pages. To view it, click on the image of the "closed lock" or the "solid key" on the bottom of your browser window. A small frame displaying security information will appear. Click on "subject" to verify that you are on our site. Click on "Issuer" to verify the site certification authority.
What about links to other websites?
Our website contains links to other sites that are not ours. These links are solely for your convenience. We make no warranties or representations about other websites. We recommend that you read the privacy and security policies of these sites.
