Privacy Policy

Last Updated: December 2017

These Terms and Conditions of the Website are incorporated herein and all terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning attributed to them in said Terms and Conditions of the Website.

This privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) is intended to inform you how Euclid Insurance Services, Inc. (“Euclid,” “we,” “us” or “our”) may collect and use your personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and other information through each of our websites: www.euclidprograms.com; www.euclidae.com; www.euclidps.com; www.euclidfinancial.com; www.euclidtransactional.com; www.enviant.com; www.euclexec.comwww.euclidspecialty.com and www.euclidmanagers.com   (the “Website”) as well as other online channels and social media, including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (collectively, the “Social Media”, and together with the Website, the “Sites”).

We have a philosophy about the way we interact with our users. If you hear from us, we will always aim to be respectful, relevant and appropriate. If at any time you do not feel we’ve lived up to our philosophy, please let us know straight away by getting in touch with us at customerservices@euclidinsurance.com.

HOW CAN THE TERMS OF THE PRIVACY POLICY BE MODIFIED?

This Privacy Policy constitutes a contract between you and Euclid. We reserve the right to change, modify, alter or otherwise update how we handle the information we collect and process via the Sites, and to modify this Privacy Policy, at any time. All changes and modifications are effective upon posting. You agree to review this Privacy Policy periodically to be aware of any such modifications. We will indicate that changes to this Privacy Policy have been made by updating the date after “Last Updated” at the beginning of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the then-current version of this Privacy Policy, then you are not authorized to use the Sites. Continued use of the Sites is deemed conclusive acceptance of the changed or modified Privacy Policy. Any material changes in the way we use Personal Information will apply only to information collected thereafter, unless we provide you with notice or obtain your consent in accordance with applicable law. The current version of this Privacy Policy is accessible via the footer of the Website’s homepage.

HOW DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION?

The Website enables Website users (each a “user” and collectively “users,” “you,” “your,” “yours” or “yourself”) to browse the Website and, when applicable, to enter information. The Sites allow users to submit content known as Your Submissions (as defined in Terms and Conditions of the Website). By using the Sites, you consent to the collection and use of your Personal Information and other information by Euclid as described in this Privacy Policy, including collection of your Personal Information and other information via Your Submissions, survey responses, sweepstakes entries, direct messaging, emails, phone calls and other communications with Euclid and Euclid Parties, and photography and videos, including sound recordings.

We may obtain Personal Information or Non-Personal information from third parties such as our service providers, vendors, independent contractors, business partners, sponsors, and other sources (e.g., offline records or publicly available information). We may combine Personal Information we collect with information that we obtain from these sources. We will treat any such combined information as Personal Information.

Cookies (including web beacons, pixels, gifs, tags or similar technologies) are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in the Sites are visited and by how many people. Our cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.

Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. You may use the Sites even if you choose to reject or delete certain cookies. We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because cookies enable you to take advantage of some of the Website’s most attractive features.

Advertisements appearing on the Sites may be delivered to users by our advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Euclid Parties (as defined in Terms and Conditions of the Website) and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

The Website may contain plugins for services like Facebook or Twitter, and we recommend that you review the privacy policies that apply to these plugins, prior to clicking on the plugins. A plugin is a software component that adds a specific feature to an existing program, allowing for customization.

The Website may use Google Analytics, which uses cookies to collect and store anonymous information about you, which may include the non-Personal Information described above. You can read Google Analytics’ privacy policy at http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html and Google Analytics Terms of Use at http://www.google.com/analytics/tos.html. You can opt-out from being tracked by Google Analytics in the future by downloading and installing Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on for your current web browser at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

In addition, we may share your Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, unless you instruct us not to do so.

WILL WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH ANYONE ELSE?

We may share your Personal Information if:

(a) you specifically request this, such as when you submit Personal Information to inquire about jobs or submit a job application through the Website (if such functionality is offered by us);

(b) you specifically request this, such as when you submit Personal Information to inquire about specific insurance through the Website;

We may share your Personal Information with our third-party service providers, to help provide and improve our service to you or to carry out surveys and user analysis to understand your needs and preferences. For instance, we will share your Personal Information with our email host and our newsletter distributor. We obligate these service providers to agree by contract to take reasonable steps to keep your Personal Information safe and secure, and to use your Personal Information only for the purposes we specify. We also may share your Personal Information in any manner in its de-identified or aggregated form, including sharing some broader statistics and user profiling information with third parties and other “Euclid” affiliated entities.

Keep in mind, when you share and post Your Submissions using the Sites, Your Submissions may be public and may be viewed by and available to anyone and can be seen or accessed through online search engines, APIs, and offline media. Personal Information which you share publicly on the Sites via your postings will no longer be considered Personal Information, including, for example, your name, social media handle, age, or other identifiers.

“DO NOT TRACK” SIGNALS

We do not alter the practices detailed herein based upon your selection of the “Do Not Track” setting or other “opt out” setting or feature that may be offered by your browser; however, we reserve the right to do so in the future.

NOTICE OF PRIVACY RIGHTS OF CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

We have adopted a policy of not sharing your Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes if you request that we do not do so (“Opt-Out Policy”). You may make such a request by sending us an email at customerservices@euclidinsurance.com or mailing your request to:

Euclid Insurance Services, Inc.

234 Spring Lake Drive

Itasca, IL 60143

Re: Disclosure Request

When contacting us, please indicate your name, address, email address, to which of the Sites your request pertains, and what Personal Information you do not want us to share with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. There is no charge for controlling the sharing of your Personal Information or for processing this request.

If you are a California resident and have provided Personal Information to a business with an Opt-Out Policy and that business is required to respond to such requests, you may be entitled by law to request certain information regarding disclosures of Personal Information made by to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year (“Disclosure Request”). Such a business is not required to respond to more than one Disclosure Request per customer each year, or to respond to requests made by means other than through the contact information designated by the business for such purposes. Note that due to our Opt-Out Policy described in the preceding paragraph, we are not obligated by law to provide you with the requested information.

If you are still interested in making a Disclosure Request, please send us an email at customerservices@euclidinsurance.com. In the Disclosure Request, specify that you seek your “California Customer Choice Privacy Notice.” Please allow thirty (30) days for a response, but understand that we are entitled by law to respond to your Disclosure Request by notifying you of your right to prevent the disclosure of Personal Information pursuant to our Opt-Out Policy, and by providing you with a cost-free means to exercise that right.

WHAT EFFORTS DO WE MAKE TO SECURE THE WEBSITE?

We have in place substantial security procedures as to how your Personal Information is stored and used, and to try to prevent any unauthorized access or misuse of it. Our goal is for all of the Personal Information you submit to us to be located behind a firewall. We take security extremely seriously, but as no system is 100% secure so we cannot completely guarantee the protection of your Personal Information, any more than any other organization can. Thus, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be lost, disclosed or accessed by accidental circumstances or by the unauthorized acts of others.

WHAT ARE OUR POLICIES REGARDING CHILDREN?

The Sites are intended for general use of persons who have reached the age of majority or consent in their jurisdiction of residence. Persons between thirteen (13) years of age and the age of majority or consent in their jurisdiction of residence may only use the Sites with consent and supervision of a parent or legal guardian. The Website and our Social Media are not targeted to anyone under thirteen (13) years of age. Euclid does not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under thirteen (13) years of age. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected Personal Information from anyone under thirteen (13) years of age, we will promptly delete such information from our records.

If Your Submission contains images of children or Personal Information related to anyone under the age of majority or consent in their jurisdiction of residence, you may not post, upload, or share Your Submission unless you are the parent or legal guardian of the referenced child. By submitting Your Submission to us, you represent that you are the parent or legal guardian of any child in Your Submission, and you waive all claims relating to any Personal Information of a child referenced or shown in Your Submission.

DO WE PROVIDE LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES?

The Sites may contain links to websites or social media of third parties. We do not have any control over the content of any of the sites or social media at these links, and we take no responsibility for any information you may give the websites or other social media. Other websites have different privacy and security policies, which we advise you to read before submitting your information to them. Once you visit another website, you are subject to the provisions of the privacy policy of such website and not by this Privacy Policy.

HOW YOU CAN ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

You can request, at any time, access to the Personal Information we hold about you by emailing us at customerservices@euclidinsurance.com to make such a request. Please note that responses to such requests may take up to ten (10) business days.
