Fair Credit Reporting Act Notice
Personal information about you, including information from a credit or other investigative report, may be collected from persons other than you in connection with this application for insurance and subsequent amendments and renewals. However, such information may only be used at renewal if you ask for it and then only if such information results in a lower premium to you. Such information as well as other personal and privileged information collected by us or our agents may in certain circumstances be disclosed to third parties without your authorization. Credit scoring information may be used to help determine either your eligibility for insurance or the premium you will be charged. We may use a third party in connection with the development of your score. You may have the right to review your personal information in our files and request correction of any inaccuracies. You may also have the right to request in writing that we consider extraordinary life circumstances in connection with the development of your credit score. These rights may be limited in some states. Please contact your agent or broker to learn how these rights may apply in your state or for instructions on how to submit a request to us for a more detailed description of your rights and our practices regarding personal information.
