Privacy & Confidentiality
Elysian shares your concern about the protection of your personal information and is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. This is our policy regarding the privacy of information we collect on www.elysian-insurance.com (the "Site"). Please read it carefully to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of the site.
- Tracking Information
Tracking information is information that is collected about every user of the Site, whether such user registers or not, and is automatically gathered using "cookies." A cookie is a small data file that is written to the user's hard drive by a Web server and used to track the pages the user has visited. Cookies do not include personal information about you, but they are unique to each user, which allows our computers to distinguish between users, and personalize your experience if you have previously provided information about yourself. Cookies are only read by the computer that placed them, and cannot execute any code or virus.
- Personal Information
Personal information is information that relates to an identifiable individual. When a user registers for the Site and/or makes a credit card payment, he/she may be required to provide personal information such as his or her name and email address, credit card number, type and expiration date, telephone number and billing address
Use of the Information
- Tracking Information
We may use tracking information in aggregate form to build higher-quality, more useful services by performing statistical analyses of users’ activities, and by measuring demographics and interest regarding specific areas of the Site. We may also use the aggregate data to inform our partners as to the number of people who have seen and clicked on links to their websites.
We also provide or may choose to provide statistical tracking information (i) to our owners, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies (collectively, "Affiliates"), and (ii) to sponsors and advertisers, enabling them to better target their advertisements to our users. None of the statistical information provided to them can be connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users. Advertisers that may place ads onto the Site may use their own cookies or other technologies. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any such advertisers.
- Personal Information
At registration and when a user is purchasing a membership through the Site, we provide notice to the user that personal information will be collected during the registration and/or purchasing process (as applicable). This Privacy Statement itself is also notice that such information is collected.
We may use this information in a number of ways:
- to customize various aspects of the Site to your preferences;
- to pre-complete online forms. For example, if you have provided an address when purchasing services, the site may automatically fill in that information on a subsequent order. This is simply a convenience - no information is released to anyone unless you authorize its release, such as by clicking a "Submit" button;
- to determine which advertisements or sponsor messages, if any, will appear on your screen;
- to send you solicitations, product announcements, and the like that we feel may be of interest to you, provided you have "opted in" to receive these materials as provided below;
- as may be necessary to support the operation of the Site, such as for billing, account maintenance, and record-keeping purposes.
As a general rule, we will not disclose any personal information to any third parties, except when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, to protect other users of the Site, or to respond to an emergency. We will also disclose your personal information if you have given permission for us to disclose such information, either during your registration or otherwise. Information may also be given to our contractors, agents or suppliers who we have employed to perform functions on our behalf (for example, for the purpose of processing credit card purchases, sending postal mail and e-mail, or hosting our servers), but only to the extent necessary for them to perform services on our behalf, and under reasonable confidentiality restrictions. Finally, if you partake, or we reasonably suspect that you are partaking, in any illegal activity, we may disclose your personal information without a subpoena, warrant or other court order to the extent we feel is necessary to cooperate with appropriate authorities.
You acknowledge and agree that we may process and store your information on our servers and/or those of third party web hosting companies. We reserve the right to provide any information that we have collected to our Affiliates and to transfer any such information to a third party in the event that we sell or otherwise transfer substantially all of our assets related to the Site.
The Site contains links to other Internet websites. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites, including such sites' use of any information.
Keep in mind that, while we encourage all third parties involved -- such as our partners and advertisers -- to adhere to our policies regarding our users' privacy and to otherwise handle personal information in a responsible manner, we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any acts or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from us or independently. Nevertheless, in the event you encounter any third party associated with the Site (or who claims association with the Site) who you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please contact us; we will be happy to forward your message to the third party.
Changing Personal Information
We recognize that some of the information that we collect from you during registration will change from time to time. You can change information that you have previously provided to us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning us (see our contact details).
We use reasonable security methods to protect the data that resides on our servers and/or those of our contracted third party web hosts. However, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our servers, nor can we guarantee that information that users supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
