Your Privacy Rights

  • Protecting your privacy is important to the Shelter Insurance Companies.
  • We want you to understand what information we collect and how we use it.
  • We do not sell customer information.

Here at the Shelter Insurance Companies, we value your patronage and want to maintain your confidence in our insurance relationship. With this in mind, we have formulated the following principles and guidelines regarding the collection, use and security of personal information you provide to us.

As you navigate within the Shelter Web Site, we may be collecting non-personally identifiable information that tells us what parts of the Web Site you or other users of your computer have browsed. We will also be collecting information about activities in our Web Site on a group basis, so that we can keep track of what users may be interested in, to help us in our marketing efforts. We use third parties to help us with this, such as Google Analytics. When we share such information with our affiliates, it is not traceable to any particular user and will not be used to contact you directly.

We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us, by, for example, filling out a survey, User ID registration form, or insurance application. We will use the personally identifiable information you provide to us for the purpose for which such information was provided and, subject to federal and state regulation, to tell you about products or services which we feel may be of interest to you or to contact you again either by online electronic communication (such as e-mail), regular mail, or telephone.

When you view our Web Site we might store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a "cookie" or similar file. Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your computer, not on our site. Cookies do not spy on you or otherwise invade your privacy, and they cannot invade your hard drive and steal information. Rather, they help you navigate the Shelter Web Site as easily as possible. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and to allow you to reenter the Web Site without reentering all your registration data at each connection.

This Web Site uses the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google). After visiting our Web Site, we may advertise to you on a Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using Google's Ad's Settings, or you can opt out of remarketing-based advertising entirely by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

The Shelter Web Site has industry standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet, we will take all reasonable steps to insure the safety of your personal information.

The Shelter Web Site contains links to other Web sites. Shelter is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
