Our third party analytics and advertising service providers may also use technology such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, log files, or Flash cookies. We use third party analytics and advertising tools (including Google Analytics) that may automatically collect non-personal information from you when you interact with our Site, advertising, and social media. The Google Analytics features we use may include Remarketing with Google Analytics and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. This non-personal information is collected through the use of first party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie), third party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie), and web beacons together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on visitors’ past visits to the Site. The information collected may include internet protocol address, the website you came from (known as the referring URL), the type of browser, device and operating system you use, the time and date of access, the pages you visit within our Site (and the order in which you visit them), geographic information, and other information that does not personally identify you. This information may be collected by and shared with our third party analytics and advertising service providers (including Google). These allow use, and our third party analytics and advertising service providers, to make advertising decisions and better understand the demographics and interests of its visitors. The information collected through these technical methods, standing alone, cannot be used to determine your identity. Such information may, however, be combined in a way that makes it become personally identifiable information. If this happens, we will treat the combined information as personally identifiable information.

Certain portions of this Site may allow you to provide your personally identifiable information to one or more third parties, such as insurance providers (“Requested Service Providers”) in order to request a quote, services or information from Requested Service Providers (e.g., by clicking “Submit” or “get your quotes”) (a “Request”) or to submit your information to Requested Service Providers through an online application (“Application”). If you make a Request or submit an Application, we may share, loan, rent or sell your personally identifiable information to the Requested Service Providers or other affiliates that we match with your Request or Application, your current provider, or to other third parties that may match you with a Requested Service Provider. In addition, the Requested Service Providers and such third parties may further disclose, share and use any personally identifiable information provided by you in connection with your Request or Application.

- Business Transfers
- Network Advertising
From time to time, we may participate in or use advertising networks, such as third party advertising servers, advertising agencies, technology vendors, and research firms. We may use these third-party advertising networks for marketing, advertising and promotional purposes, as well as to serve advertisements to you. Advertising networks often gather data about consumers who view advertisements to make inferences about a consumer’s interests and preferences, which enables their computers to deliver advertisements directly targeted to the consumer’s specific interests. This practice is often referred to as “online behavioral advertising.” For example, a third-party advertising network might collect the type of Internet browser you use, the type of computer operating system you use, the domain name of a website you visit, whether or not you visit specific pages of this Site and other websites, the location of your Internet service provider’s presence, the date and time of a visit to a website and other interactions between you and website. Please see the “Tracking Options and California Do Not Track Disclosures” section above to understand your choices about not having this information used by certain service providers.
Option to Opt-Out of Email Marketing
If you do not wish to receive email offers or newsletters from us, you can opt-out of receiving email information from us (other than emails related to the completion of your registration, correction of user data, change of password and other similar communications essential to your transactions on this Site) by using the unsubscribe process at the bottom of the email.
We have taken certain physical, administrative, and technical steps to safeguard the information we collect from and about our customers and Site visitors. While we make every effort to help ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee our security measures.
