Among other things, this Privacy Statement notifies you of the following:
- What Personal Information is collected from you through the web site, how it is used and
with whom it may be shared.
- What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
- The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.

“Personal Information,” as used in this Privacy Statement, is information that allows a person to directly identify an individual, such as but not limited to name or email address, including information that we combine directly with such identifying information.
NOTICE: INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, AND SHARING
Insurity, Inc. is the sole owner of the Personal Information collected on the Insurity Website. However, we may offer the opportunity to interact with certain third party sites or services (“Third Party Services”). Those Third Party Services may also collect certain Personal Information from you. Some of the Personal Information collected on such Third Party Services will be owned by the Third Party Services. You should consult the privacy policies of whatever Third Party Services you sign up for to understand how and whether they protect your Personal Information and what choices you may have regarding the information they collect.
Insurity, for itself, collects Personal Information from you on forms or email that you voluntarily submit to us and also collects Personal Information based on your usage of the Insurity Website. This information is collected in order to enable us to better identify and serve our community of users and to respond better to their needs.
In addition, Insurity also collects and stores certain information in order to answer your email and to measure your interest in the various sections of the Insurity Website. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. Insurity also permits you to post information or upload content to the Website or to a Third Party site.
We will use information that you provide to us to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us, and to provide you with information about Insurity, our events, materials and our other activities. We will not intentionally share your information with any unaffiliated third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to respond to your emails or questions or to provide services to you. Generally, these third parties are required not to use your information other than to provide the services requested by Insurity. We may share your information with affiliated companies and our third party service providers in order to provide better service to you. We may also receive information from or about you from other sources like address, phone numbers or facsimile number. We may add this information to the information we have already collected from you via our website in order to serve you better.
We may passively collect information regarding your use of the Insurity Website by automated methods. The information that we collect with these automated methods may include, for example, your IP address, cookie information, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on our website, and the “referring URL” (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the our website). We use this information statistically to serve you and our other visitors better. Our site does serve cookies. A cookie is a small file that is created to help visitors navigate about the site, and for use to track the traffic to and on our site. You may refuse the cookies but some functions may not work as well or at all. We or our third party service providers may also use other methods, including clear GIFs (also known as “web beacons”) to determine which pages you visit. We also may include clear GIFs or other discreet tokens in some of our email messages in order to learn whether the messages are delivered and opened.
While Insurity websites at this time do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, such as “do not track” instructions, you can generally express your privacy preferences regarding the use of most cookies and similar technologies through your web browser. Look under the heading “Tools” (or similar heading) in your particular browser for information about controlling cookies. In most instances you can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the option to decide whether to accept it or not. You can also generally set your browser to turn off cookies.
Since cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our websites’ features or features of our software products, we recommend that you leave them turned on. If you block, turn off or otherwise reject our cookies, some web pages may not display properly or you may not be able to use any website that require you to sign in.Certain third party Third Party Services may also collect similar data. Please consult their privacy policies regarding their use of your information. Certain of these services collect data from you as part of the registration process, through your volunteering information when you interact with their services and by combining data with other information you have provided to such services at other times. These sites have privacy policies which are in addition to this privacy statement. Certain of these Third Party Services permit you to adjust your user settings to permit certain choices by you about your Personal Information. These choices may be limited by the third party provider and the third party provider will typically not guarantee that once your information has been disclosed to them or posted to their website it can be removed from all locations where it may be stored. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these, advertising servers or advertising networks and Third Party Services. This Privacy Statement does not apply to such other advertisers or websites or Third Party Services.
If our organization or our assets are acquired by another organization, that organization will possess the information collected by us and we will endeavor to have it assume the rights and obligations regarding your information as described in this Privacy Statement.
We may disclose your information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect and defend the rights or property of Insurity or users of our website; (c) take precautions against liability; (d) protect the rights, property, or safety, any individual, or the general public; (e) maintain and protect the security and integrity of our services or infrastructure; (f) protect ourselves and our services from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; (g) investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; or (h) assist government enforcement agencies.
Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about upcoming events, opportunities we think may interest you, new activities or changes to this Website.
YOUR ACCESS TO AND CONTROL OVER INFORMATION
You may opt out of any future marketing contacts from us by e-mail at any time by following the “opt out” or “SafeUnsubscribe” link at the bottom of our marketing emails to you. Withdrawing your consent to us using your information
You may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us for the processing of your personal information by contacting us at email@example.com or at the address provided at the bottom of this notice. As required by applicable law, we will apply your preferences going forward, within a reasonable amount of time. Even where you withdraw your consent, we may still process your personal information for limited purposes, for example, to give effect to your request or to safeguard our business. In some circumstances, withdrawing your consent to our use or disclosure of your personal information will mean that you cannot use some of our products or services.
We have secured Personal Information only to the extent of the security systems provided by our third party hosting service. We have required that our third party hosting service use reasonable security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of Personal Information. We take certain precautions to protect the information of registered users. Wherever we collect information that we deem is sensitive (such as account information), we enforce transmission layer security (TLS) to transmit that data from a user’s computer to the servers of our third party hosting service providers’ servers. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. We do not assume any liability to third parties for your use of our website or for information about others you include in your profile or contacts.
If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Insurity Website or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of our website. If a security systems breach occurs, Insurity may post a notice on our homepage or elsewhere on our website and may send email to you at the email address you have provided to us.
WHERE WE STORE YOUR INFORMATION
We are a global organization and so the personal information that we process may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination other than the country in which the information was collected or provided (personal information is frequently transferred to the United States because that is where we are headquartered). Where we transfer your personal information outside the European Economic Area, we will ensure that your personal information is protected by appropriate safeguards as required by applicable data protection laws. These safeguards may include, in particular, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Your personal information may also be processed by our staff at any of our locations around the world or by the staff of our suppliers at any of their locations around the world. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfillment of your request or the provision of support services.
Your personal information may be stored on our servers or those of our third party service providers.
You may, at any time, update, correct, or delete certain categories of Personal Information that you have provided to the Insurity Website by notifying us in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your Personal Information may be retained in our backup files and archives for a reasonable period of time for legal purpose.
When you wish to receive information, download publications, enroll for a live or virtual event or request a trial, we may ask you to provide your name and business contact information, as well as other information in connection with your request. We use this information in connection with your request and to communicate with you. This information may, in most cases, also identify you when you visit our websites. We will retain your information for potential future interactions with you.
We may also ask you to register an ID, in which case you need to provide us with your name, email address, country location and other information if needed for the purpose for which you are asked to register. The ID serves to uniquely identify you when you visit our websites, have a request or use a product or service.
Registration with ID may allow you to customize and control your privacy settings. Certain products and services may require unique registration specifically for the purpose of providing these products or services. In such cases, registration details provided by you for a product or service will only be used for the specific purpose of providing you with that product or service.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Our provision of a link to any other website or location is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such other website or location or its contents. We have no control over, do not review, and cannot be responsible for these outside websites or their content. Please be aware that the terms of this Privacy Statement do not apply to these other websites. Any Personal Information you provide on third-party sites or services is provided directly to that third party and is subject to that third party’s policies governing privacy and security.
Insurity will retain your personal information for as long as is required to fulfill the purposes for which the information is processed or for other valid reasons to retain your personal information (for example to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements).
Your registration information will be retained for as long as your account or ID is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to request that we no longer use your registration information to provide you services, contact us at email@example.com.
LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING
We rely on the following legal bases, under data protection laws, to process your personal information. (a) because the processing is necessary to perform a contract with you or take steps prior to entering into a contract with you; (b) where you have expressly consented to the use of your personal information, because we have obtained your consent (for example, if you consent to our sharing your personal information with a third party for marketing purposes); (c) because it is in our legitimate interests as a provider of an application to maintain, improve and promote our products and services; (d) when we have a legal obligation to process your personal information.
CONDITIONS OF USE AND REVISIONS
