Will Dipsurance sell my personal information to other insurance agents or companies? How is my information shared?
No. First and foremost, we do not sell lists of our clients, nor do we disclose customer information to marketing companies outside of eFalcon Life Insurance companies, with the exception of the companies we may hire to provide specific services for us, as described below. Under no circumstances do we share medical information for marketing purposes.
We will share personal information only for the following reasons:
- We may disclose your personal information to third party vendors engaged by us to help manage our Site, fulfill your requests or administer or enforce a transaction you requested. In these cases, we only require such vendors to restrict their use of such information to the intended purposes.
- When you have requested an insurance product, Dipsurance may send your information to the life insurance company you have selected as described below.
- When you apply for life insurance, we may use a common application or authorization to avoid multiple medical tests; in this way, the information you provide and authorize us to obtain may subsequently be used by one or all of these life insurance companies as necessary to determine – and offer to you – the product most appropriate for your specific needs.
When does my information get sent to a life insurance company?
Information does not get sent until you authorize us to begin the application process for the specific insurance company and policy you select. Once we start the official application process, you will still receive all the formal paperwork to sign and review before we forward it to the life insurance company of your choice.
What will the life insurance companies use my information for?
The life insurance companies will use your information for underwriting purposes to determine your risk classification for the life insurance product you are applying for. This information may be used for, but is not limited to, the following purposes: requesting medical records, financial records, credit records, driving records, or other third party documents during the underwriting process. Rates displayed on dipsurance.com are based on basic underwriting guidelines only. The insurance company uses your personal information to determine the final price for your policy and your risk classification.
In addition, we may need to, and reserve the right to, disclose or transfer personal information to third parties in connection with selling or liquidating any part of our business or assets.
The privacy and the security of your personal information are extremely important to us. While no website, database or system is completely secure or “hacker proofed” and we cannot guarantee that it is, we have security practices and procedures in place to prevent unauthorized use or access to your nonpublic personal information. These include using SSL encryption for transmitting sensitive personal information through the dipsurance.com and restricting access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees or service providers who need to know the information to provide life insurance products or services to you and requiring them to respect the confidentiality of all client information.
