When you contact us or we contact you, we collect any information that you provide, including the contents of the messages or attachments you send us.
B. Information We Collect When You Use the Website
Cookies, Analytics, and Third Party Technologies. We collect information through the use of “cookies”, tracking pixels, data analytics tools like Google Analytics, SDKs, and other third party technologies to understand how you navigate through the Website, to improve your site experience, to serve you better ads on other sites, and to save your preferences. Cookies are small text files that web servers place on your device; they are designed to store basic information and to help websites and apps recognize your browser. You should consult your web browser(s) to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete or choose not to accept cookies from us, you may miss out on certain features of the Website.
We also collect some anonymous information each time you visit the Website so we can improve the overall quality of your online experience. We collect your IP address, referral data, browser and platform type. You do not have to register with the Website before we can collect this anonymous information. We do not collect any unique information about you (such as your name, email address, etc.) except when you specifically and knowingly provide such information.
We do not require you to share information that identifies you personally, such as your name or email address, in order for you to use the Website’s quotes. We assigns an anonymous ID number to your requests and links the following additional data to that number: the date and time you visited the Website, your quote terms, and the links upon which you choose to click.
If you request more information on a policy or an application we will collect your personal information only so that we can get you the information you have requested. Like most standard Website servers, we use log files to collect and store this anonymous user information. We analyze this information to examine trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may present links in a format that enables us to understand whether they have been followed. We use this information to understand and improve the quality of the Website quote engine.
We use your personal information to:
• Communicate with you;
• Provide customer support;

You can remove your email at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
