We may collect certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information ("Non-PII") about you when you visit any of the Website's pages, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows or iOS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., Yahoo). We use the Non-PII that we collect to improve the design and content of the quoteuser™ Offerings and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience.

By submitting your PII by and through the Quoteuser™ Offerings, you agree that we may share, sell, rent, lease or otherwise provide that PII to any third party for any purpose permitted by law, and we may work with other businesses to bring selected retail opportunities to our users. These businesses and third parties may include, but are not limited to: (a) providers of direct marketing services and applications, including lookup and reference, data enhancement, suppression and validation; (b) e-mail marketers; (c) telemarketers (where permitted by applicable law); and (d) direct marketers. We will also use your PII to send you promotional messages regarding various Company products and/or services, as well as third party products and/or services that we think may be of interest to you.
We may also employ other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include sending direct and electronic mail, removing duplicate information from user lists, analyzing data and providing marketing analysis. The agents performing these limited functions on our behalf shall have access to our users’ PII as needed to perform these functions for us, but we do not permit them to use user PII for other purposes.
We will also use your PII for customer service, to provide you with information that you may request, to customize your experience with the Quoteuser™ Offerings and/or to contact you when necessary in connection with your use of the Quoteuser™ Offerings. We may also use your PII for internal business purposes, such as analyzing and managing our business including, without limitation, the Quoteuser™ Offerings.

We reserve the right to release current or past PII: (i) in the event that we believe that the Quoteuser™ Offerings are being or have been used in violation of the Terms and Conditions or to commit unlawful acts; (ii) if the information is subpoenaed; provided, however, that, where permitted by applicable law, we shall provide you with e-mail notice, and opportunity to challenge the subpoena, prior to disclosure of any PII pursuant to a subpoena; or (iii) if we are sold, merge with a third party, are acquired or are the subject of bankruptcy proceedings; provided, however, that if Company is involved in a bankruptcy proceeding, merger, acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on the Website of any change in ownership or uses of your PII, as well as any choices that you may have regarding your PII.
You hereby consent to the disclosure of any record or communication to any third-party when we, in our sole discretion, determine the disclosure to be appropriate including, without limitation, sharing your e-mail address with third-parties for suppression purposes in compliance with applicable law including the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, as amended from time to time. Users should also be aware that courts of equity, such as U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, might have the authority under certain circumstances to permit PII to be shared or transferred to third parties without permission.
We endeavor to safeguard and protect our users’ PII. When users make PII available to us, their personal information is protected both online and offline (to the extent that we maintain any PII offline).
Access to your PII is strictly limited, and we take reasonable measures to ensure that your PII is not accessible to the public. All of our users’ PII is restricted in our offices, as well as the offices of our third party service providers. Only employees or third party agents who need PII to perform a specific job are granted access to PII. Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user PII. Employees not adhering to our firm policies are subject to disciplinary action. The servers that we store PII on are kept in a secure physical environment. We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of PII under our control.
Please be advised, however, that while we take every reasonable precaution available to protect your PII, no storage facility, technology, software, security protocols or data transmission over the Internet or via wireless networks can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Computer hackers that circumvent our security measures may gain access to certain portions of your PII, and technological bugs, errors and glitches may cause inadvertent disclosures of your PII; provided, however, that any attempt to breach the security of the network, our servers, databases or other hardware or software may constitute a crime punishable by law. For the reasons mentioned above, we cannot warrant that your PII will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data at or through the Website, other Quoteuser™ Offerings, or otherwise via the Internet or wireless network, is done at your own risk. In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your PII. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
