Online Privacy Statement
EQUA Specialty Risk Partners Corporation (“EQUA”) believes strongly in protecting the privacy of users who visit our website, located at
, and our affiliated websites at businessprotection.equaspecialty.com (these "Sites”). This online privacy statement (“Privacy Statement”) is intended to inform you of how these Sites collect and use personal information, and how we strive to ensure your personal information is protected and kept secure.
What Information Do We Collect?
When using these Sites, you may choose to provide us with information to help us serve your needs. This may include you providing us your email or mailing address to request information to be sent to you. Any personal information you send us will be used only for the purposes indicated in this Privacy Statement or as otherwise consented to by you. For the purposes of this Privacy Statement, personal information means information that, on its own or in combination with other information we have, is able to identify you.
You can refuse to accept and delete cookies by adjusting your browser settings. Please note that refusing or deleting cookies may impact your browsing experience on these Sites or prevent you from using some of their services, and it may result in the deletion of any preferences you have set.
Use of Information
EQUA will only use the information to serve your needs including maintaining communication, assessing what products and services are offered, gather insurance underwriting information, provide quotations when requested by you, obtain reports from credit agencies or to comply with regulatory or legal requirements. For clarity, we will only obtain reports about you from credit agencies to the extent we have obtained you express consent in accordance with all applicable laws.
We may share your information with our affiliates to enable them to provide services to you and to enable them to contact you regarding additional products and services in which you have expressed an interest.
We sometimes contract with other companies and individuals to perform functions or services for us or on our behalf. They may have access to personal information to perform their functions but are contractually restricted from using it for purposes other than providing services for EQUA or on our behalf.
Should other purposes arise, they will be identified for the client while or before the information is collected or prior to use, unless required by law. EQUA will only retain personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected and/or to meet legal or contractual requirements, after which it is destroyed, rendering it unable to identify you.
Protecting Your Information
Your personal information is treated as private, confidential information by EQUA and we strive to ensure that your personal information, regardless of format, is always protected and kept secure. Access to your personal information is restricted within EQUA and to those service providers who need to use it to provide these Sites and our products or services. Safeguards, including physical, technological and administrative safeguards, have been implemented to protect your personal information from unauthorized access.
Where we use service providers who might have access to your personal information, we require them to have privacy and security standards that are comparable to ours. We use contracts and other measures with our service providers to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal information and to prevent it from being used for any other purpose.
However, we cannot guarantee the security of our systems, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
Accessing and Updating Information
You have the right to know what personal information about you we possess and to update or correct your personal information. To access, update or correct your personal information, please contact us at the address provided below.
Some of the parties to whom we may provide your personal information may be located in jurisdictions outside Canada. As a result, your personal information may be used, stored and/or accessed outside Canada, including the United States and possibly other jurisdictions. Please note that when your personal information is located outside of Canada, it will be subject to the laws of the country in which it is situated and these jurisdictions may not have an equivalent level of data protection laws as those in Canada.
Keeping your information accurate and up to date is very important. Please let us know about any changes that may be required to your personal information via our “contact us” form.
This Privacy Statement is subject to change at any time. Any changes made become effective immediately once posted on these Sites. We recommend that you review this Privacy Statement regularly for changes.
