YOUR INFORMATION IS CONFIDENTIAL
All financial companies need to share customers’ personal information to run their everyday business as permitted by law. We contract with individuals and entities known as Business Associates to perform various functions on our behalf or to provide certain types of services. These Business Associates may include insurance agents, third party administrators, information technology service providers, and others. We may disclose personally identifiable information (PII) or, under certain contracts, protected health information (PHI) to a Business Associate if they need the information to provide a service to us. We may disclose all types of nonpublic personal information to either affiliated or nonaffiliated third parties in order to process your application or claim, administer your account, provide you with a service you request, administer our business or print/mail documents. We enter into agreements with these Business Associates concerning the privacy and security of your information and these Business Associates are obligated to follow federal rules/laws concerning privacy and security. We do not sell lists of our customers, nor do we disclose customer information for marketing products and services offered by other companies.
WE PROTECT YOUR NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION
We are committed to protecting your personal information and maintaining the highest level of trust, honesty and integrity. These values have been the principles of our company since 1926 and remain today as the cornerstones for strong customer relationships. In order to protect the confidentiality of your nonpublic personal information, we continually monitor our systems and business procedures to ensure the utmost security measures are in place.
We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to our employees, producers and the companies we contract with who need to know that information in order to provide services or offer other Guaranty Income Life products to you.
