Cookies and IP Addresses

To serve you more efficiently and effectively, we use “cookies” technology. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive that contains information about the user. Cookies are linked to particular devices over time, but we do not link personal information obtained from cookies to any other personal information we obtain. Cookies enable a web site to “personalize” itself for each user and reduce the time it takes for pages to load on your computer. In order to optimize your experience, cookies also help with the collection of customer tracking data. We may also capture customer tracking data on some of our partner’s web sites, related to activity involved with the completion of offers listed on our web site. This information is used to monitor the performance of our partners. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site will be limited. We also keep track of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and may disclose your IP address during the course and scope of our business. An IP Address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet.

Your browser or device may offer settings that allow you to choose whether browser cookies are set and to delete them. For more information about these controls and to exercise your cookie preferences, visit your browser or device’s help material. If you choose to reject cookies, as noted above, you may not be able to use certain features of our websites and services. To learn more about Cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

We permit some of our non-affiliated business partners (e.g., advertisers) use cookies on our site. We have no access to or control over information collected from such cookies. This Privacy Policy covers the use of our cookies only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Clear Gifs

We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs) that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movement of Web users. We also use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails the recipients have opened. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If users would like to opt-out of these emails, please see the Opt-out section within any email you receive from us.

Information Selling and Sharing

Sale of Your Personal Information

We may sell (as that term is defined broadly by applicable law) or share (as defined by the California Privacy Rights Act), including for targeted advertising (as that term is defined by the Colorado Privacy Act and the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act), your personal information to the following categories of third parties, and/or under the following circumstances:

  • Partners, sponsors, advertisers, service providers and marketers lookup and reference services and any other entities that AutoInsurance.com believes are able to provide Consumers with special offers and opportunities, including retail opportunities, that relate to the requests you have made. These businesses include providers of direct marketing services and applications, including lookup and reference, data enhancement, suppression and validation and email marketing. In each case, you will have agreed to receiving such information. For example, if you have requested a quote for a service from a particular company, we will share your information with that company to facilitate your request.
  • Additionally, AutoInsurance.com may share aggregated information with select companies that wish to reach a particular Consumer target audience (e.g., female Consumers between the ages of 25-35, who have an average household income of over $50,000.00). This information will allow these entities to provide relevant offers to specific Consumers.

AutoInsurance.com prohibits the sale or transfer of personal information to non-affiliated entities for their use without giving you the opportunity to opt-out. Although AutoInsurance.com advises everyone who receives personal information from AutoInsurance.com to support this Privacy Policy, AutoInsurance.com has no control over such party’s information handling practices and is not responsible for any failure of such party to adhere to this Privacy Policy.

Other Transfers of Information to Third Parties

We may additionally transfer information to third parties in the following situations, which are not selling or sharing, as defined by applicable law:

  • When you request quotes or request to be contacted through AutoInsurance.com or our other sites that we operate, you are authorizing us to share information with our business partners who will contact you by (i) phone, including without limitation any prerecorded telephone call to any telephone number including without limitation any wireless telephone number, which could result in charges to you, (ii) SMS text message, (iii) email, or (iv) mail. We may also contact you through any of the above means. If you do not want further communication from them or us, please notify the person or entity that contacts you directly.

  • With other persons, if we believe it is necessary to 1) comply with applicable laws; (2) respond to governmental inquiries; (3) comply with valid legal process; or (4) protect the rights or property of AutoInsurance.com, AutoInsurance.com’s web sites or other Consumers.
  • In connection with, or during the negotiation of, any merger, sale of company stock or assets, financing, acquisition, divestiture, or dissolution of all or a portion of the business. Any successor company will continue to be bound by this Privacy Policy, unless it is modified as described by this policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to all information that AutoInsurance.com collects. However, when you visit web sites to which AutoInsurance.com provides a link, keep in mind you will be interacting with a third party that operates under its own privacy and security policies, and terms of use. If you choose to obtain certain services through a third party site, the data collected by the third party is governed by that third party’s privacy policy. A third party site will also have its own policy regarding the use of cookies and clear gifs. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of use of any other service provider from whom you request services.
