Personal information is not collected unless you give it to us. If you are simply browsing this site, we do not collect any personal information. From time to time, we may compile statistics on the use of our site. We may monitor statistics such as how many visitors we’ve had or which browsers people use but this data does not identify anyone personally.
Combined Insurance uses links through its site to allow you to elect to contact us via e-mail. Although we will ask you to call or write to us about many topics we consider too sensitive to be done via e-mail, we do accept questions and welcome your comments and suggestions.
USE OF "COOKIES" OR OTHER DATA COLLECTION TOOLS
A cookie is a piece of information that a web server may place on your computer when you visit a web site. Cookies are commonly used by web sites to improve the user experience and have not been known to transmit computer viruses or otherwise harm your computer. Many cookies last only through a single web site session, or visit. Others may have an expiration date, or may remain on your computer until you delete them.
Our cookies will track only your activity relating to your online activity on this web site, and will not track your other Internet activity. Our cookies do not gather personally identifiable information.
You can decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by configuring your preferences or options in your browser. Please visit our “How to manage cookies” page for more information. If you choose to disable cookies, this will currently have no impact on the way the site works but in the future any website developments may be affected.
We may occasionally use other companies to set cookies on our web sites and gather cookie information for us. In some cases we may also use another company to operate web servers for our web site. We use the cookie information gathered by these companies in the same manner as stated above.
In addition to cookies, we may also use other means of passively collecting non-personally identifiable data about your use of our web sites, such as through the use of “clear GIFs” (small pieces of data that may be embedded in images on our web sites that enable us to track your usage of our web sites) and analyzing “click stream” data (the virtual trail you leave behind while browsing the Internet and viewing our web sites). We only use clear GIFs and click stream data to gather anonymous data about your visit to our web sites. Blocking cookies will prevent clear GIFs from tracking your activity, and also prevent us from collecting certain other anonymous unique information, such as your IP address, but the clear GIF will still account for an anonymous visit.
In addition to the information we collect from cookies, from clear GIFs, through the analysis of click stream data and any other means we may employ to collect non-personally identifiable information about you or your visits to our web sites, we may also obtain anonymous information which you provide to us online -- for example, when you use our tools and calculators.
We reserve the right to use and share aggregate and anonymous data (including data aggregated from you and other users of our web sites, tools and calculators) for any purpose and with any third parties, unless prohibited by law.
