3. HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you use the Contact Us link on our website, the information you provide is used to process your suggestion or customer service request or to provide You with information concerning the products and services We offer. To the extent necessary to address your question or request, We may share your communication with Your authorized insurance agent, if you are an existing N&D® Group policyholder. We reserve the right to transfer information to a third party in the event of sale, merger or affiliation, provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Policy. We may disclose information (including personally identifiable information) about You to our Affiliates. For purposes of this Policy, “Affiliates” means any person or entity which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is in common control with Us, whether by ownership or otherwise. Any information relating to You that we provide to our Affiliates will be treated by those Affiliates in accordance with the terms on this Policy. We may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) if we believe in good faith that We are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process.

Google Analytics uses first-party cookies, allowing for the ability to collect information such as; the number of times our users have accessed our site, the pages accessed by our users, the type of device our users connect with, type of browser used , and other important information. Google Analytics collects users’ IP addresses assigned to them on the date of which they have accessed our site. No personal identifiable information is collected by Google Analytics.
