During the insurance quoting process, we require collecting the user's zip code. Additionally, for each quote request we may collect a user's email address for the purposes of email notifications related to the status of the quote request submitted by the user. In some cases, we may collect additional personal information from the user relevant to the product under consideration. Depending on the nature of the quote, this information may relate to the user's business, demographic, financial, legal, medical, residential, or other history or current status.
E-Insure makes use of information collected from our users in a number of ways. Some of these uses are intrinsic to the operation of the website. Other uses enable E-Insure to provide the best possible customer experience, as well as assist us in formulating business strategy. The following is a list of the most significant ways in which E-Insure makes use of your personal information:

We collect your location based information for the purpose of locating a place that you may be searching for in your area. We will only share this information with our mapping provider for the sole purpose of providing you this service. You may opt-out of location based services at any time by editing the setting of your browser.
E-Insure is in the business of connecting businesses and consumers with insurers and providers of insurance information that can meet their specific needs. An essential part of the process involves sharing relevant personal information about the user with prospective providers, so that providers can provide an appropriate and useful response. Our partners receive this information in one of two ways, depending on the type of service requested. Online quoting engines generally provide their own applications. In the case where the user has elected to be serviced by an online quoting engine, E-Insure will frame the quote engine's application, meaning that any information entered by the user will pass directly to the partner.
E-Insure generally does not have the option to retain or make use of this information, although in some cases E-Insure can contribute to it (and add convenience for the user) by pre-filling relevant application fields. Most E-Insure Partners are insurance agencies that lack the capacity to provide their own online capacities. When a user elects to be serviced by a human insurance agent, relevant information from the user's User Profile is displayed directly to the user's selected insurance agent.
Like most Web sites, E-Insure uses server log files. These logs may record details about a user's visit to the site, including the following:
User internet protocol (IP) address. User browser type. User internet service provider (ISP). Page from which the user entered the site. Page to which the user exited the site. User platform type. Date & time of visit. Specific sequence of user's progress through site.Gender, age, and other non-personal demographic information.E-Insure uses this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movements in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc., are not linked to personal information. In other words, although we know precisely what a user may have done during a particular visit to our site, we do not know which user did it. To assist us in performing these analyses, E-Insure uses popular log file tracking and analysis utilities including: Google Analytics and ChartBeat.
We partner with a third party to either display advertising on our Web site or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this site and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.
Though we at E-Insure Services make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on our Web site and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. In certain situations, E-Insure may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We occasionally share aggregated demographic information with current and prospective partners and advertisers. Such information is in aggregate form only, and is not linked to any personal information about our users. E-Insure users can opt to have their personal information shared with reputable third parties deemed by E-Insure to have products or services of specific interest to them. Although E-Insure exerts no control over what such third parties do with this information once it is shared, users may at any time opt out of future sharing. E-Insure Services will personally notify users at any time we share their personal information with a third party. E-Insure currently has no third-party information sharing arrangements.
We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.
If you have reason to believe that any E-Insure affiliate, partner, or a related third party is violating your privacy, we urge you to promptly notify our Customer Service department. If, following our investigation we determine that an affiliate has in fact violated a user's privacy, we will issue a single warning. Future violations will result in the immediate termination of the business relationship. In the event E-Insure goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' Personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that E-Insure Services is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware of when they leave our site and to read the privacy policies of each and every Web site that collects personal information.
E-Insure collects user feedback regarding each interaction with our partners. This feedback enables us to identify potential customer service issues, and is also an essential component of the ranking system that determines how partners are presented to prospective future clients. Although feedback is tied to specific user accounts within our database, such information is never presented to partners or to other users except in aggregate form, meaning that no particular feedback instance can be correlated to a specific user.
The mission of the eINSURE Blog is to help people and businesses make well-informed decisions about buying and managing insurance. Although Blog articles are primarily written by insurance industry professionals, the editors highly encourage editorial contributions from the lay public. Although contributors are free to attach personal contact information to their articles and letters, E-Insure accepts no responsibility for the consequences of publishing such potentially sensitive information in the public domain. If you want to update or delete the personal information you submitted with your editorial contribution, you can contact us at email@example.com
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our user’s information. When we ask users to enter personal information, that information is protected by industry-standard 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Users can identify SSL-protected pages by the Norton Secured icon that appears at the bottom edge of Web browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari. E-Insure's SSL certificate provider is Symantec Corporation, the leading company in SSL certificates. Click the icon to validate the integrity of E-Insure's SSL-based security scheme.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted to our offices and our off-site data facility. Only employees who need the information to perform specific job tasks, such as customer service, are granted access to personally identifying information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that store personally identifying information are in a secure and hardened environment at Peer1 Hosting.
We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
