Privacy Policy

Information Collection & Disclosure Practices

Please read this notice to learn how your information may be used by us and about your right to review and correct personal data. Our goal is to protect the confidentiality of information that you provide to us.

Acceptance of Privacy Policy Terms. By using this website or proceeding with the quote process, you acknowledge your agreement with the Valor Independent Group Limited (together with its affiliates, “Valor”) Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE OR SERVICE. Your continued use of Valor’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy, and your use of Valor’s website following the posting of changes to these terms (if any) will mean you accept those changes as well.

Your Privacy Is Important to Us. Valor protects the confidentiality of personal information that you provide to us or that we collect. We have physical, electronic, and procedural security in place to protect personal data. The insurance carriers that Valor is contracted with utilize personal information about you and the drivers in your household with respect to your application for insurance, renewals, changes to your policy, pricing quotations, policies, and claims. Additional personal information collected, may, if permitted by law, be disclosed without prior authorization to non-affiliated third parties. We may also share information with affiliated companies or lead generation alliances for such purposes as servicing, underwriting, quote pricing, document signing, text message services, insurance marketing, and policy placement. Information may be provided to others when required by law or pursuant to legal process.

Types of Information We Collect and Disclose. We collect non-public personal financial and health information about you, your family, and your property in order to issue policies, service policies, and to assist in the handling of underwriting and claims. This information is collected and retained even if we no longer service you as a client as we are required by law to maintain our records for up to seven years. Nonpublic personal financial and health information is defined as information not generally available to the public. We collect this information in a number of ways, including:

  • Information that you give us when you apply for a policy or make a policy change. When you apply for a policy we record the information that you give us on an application form or in an application quote system. We also record information when you request a policy change. The information we obtain may include your name, address, and telephone number, driver’s license number, social security number, federal employer identification number, date of birth, length of employment, gender, marital status, prior insurance information, home ownership, length of residency, vehicle descriptions, miles driven and vehicle use, other drivers, vehicle garaging address, and driving history.
  • Information that we acquire in the course of doing business with you. We collect information about
    your transactions with our company and other companies. It may include your insurance coverage selections and premiums, payment and claims history, information used to calculate premium, and your payment and billing information.
  • Information that we acquire from third parties. The insurance carriers we are contracted with collect information from consumer reporting agencies. It may include motor vehicle records, driving records, accident reports, claims history reports, insurance records, and consumer reports that may include credit information. Upon your written request to the insurance carrier, not Valor, the carrier will provide you with a copy of this information. You have the right to access this personal information and ask for correction of any erroneous information found in the records of these third parties by submitting a request to the third party.
  • E-mail. We may email requests to you to complete and support your transactions with us and to comply with law. We may also send you email to follow-up on coverage quotes, respond to your questions, and to provide you with information about your policy and other information.
  • Cell Phone Number Calls and Text Messaging. We may call and/or text message you to complete and support your transactions with us and to comply with law. We may also call and/or send you text messages to follow-up on coverage quotes, respond to your questions, and to provide you with information about your policy and other information. Standard carrier messaging rates will apply to any calls, voice messages, and/or text messages received from Valor or sent by you to Valor representatives or affiliated business alliances. Valor is not liable for any cell phone messaging charges or fees generated by this service. You may ask through written request at any time to be removed from this cell phone call and/or messaging service. Valor reserves the right to review and process your request within thirty (30) days of receiving the request. Please be advised by opting out of the cell phone call and/or messaging service Valor’s communication method with you will automatically default to email and/or United States Postal Service (USPS) standard mail unless there is a landline associated with the account that is not on the national do not call list (DNC).
  • Cookies. As is common practice with websites, we use cookies to enhance your web browsing experience. A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the website or to recognize your computer in the future. The cookie transmits this information back to the website’s computer, which, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it.

Parties to Whom We Disclose Information. We may disclose your information without additional authorization to third parties: (1) for our everyday business purposes, such as to process insurance transactions, obtain additional pricing, coverage options and policy placement with outside insurance agencies and brokers in which Valor has a lead generation alliance, maintain a policy, respond to court orders and legal investigations; (2) we may provide the information to trusted partners who work on our behalf and are under requirements of confidentiality; (3) if we are acquired by or merge with another company; (4) as permitted or required by law (for example, a subpoena, court order, or legal process, or to establish or exercise legal rights or defend against legal claims). All third parties are required to maintain the confidentiality of your nonpublic personal information. You may ask us in writing not to disclose financial information to nonaffiliated third parties except as provided by law.

Confidentiality & Security. We restrict access to non-public personal information about you to other parties who must use that information to provide products or services to you. The information provided is restricted to only what is necessary to provide these products and/or services. Valor’s ability to disclose or use the information is limited by our employee code of conduct, applicable law, and nondisclosure agreements where appropriate. We also maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information against unauthorized disclosure or use.

Disclaimer. The security of all information associated without users is an important concern to us. As sated above, we exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computers to our, and our affiliates’, servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we, including our affiliates, use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, such as firewalls and VPNs.
