As an Online Customer, Bristol West Holdings, Inc. (“Bristol West”) wants you to know how we use the information you provide when you come to us through www.bristolwest.com.

We will collect information from our Web site only if you give it to us. We will only use the information you provide to facilitate your requests, process any transactions you might initiate, or update your account information. We understand the importance of protecting children’s privacy, especially in an Internet environment. It is our policy never to knowingly collect or maintain information from children by way of the Internet.

We do not use "cookies" (a small text file placed on the user’s hard drive) to collect information for distribution to third parties for any purpose. Nor do we use "cookies" to secure information from other Web sites you may visit.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to reject all cookies. You do this by changing the settings on your browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla Firefox, etc.). Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's "Help" menu to learn how to modify its settings to reflect your cookie preferences. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not have access to many features that make your Web experience smoother, and some of our services may not function properly.

When you visit our website, other parties may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites. Please note that we do not currently support "Do Not Track" signals but may do so in the future.

Communications with our Internet Web site containing confidential information require that a "secure session" first be established. Such communication between Bristol West and its customers is encoded using the most recent release of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology utilizing encryption of up to 256 bits. This ensures that your data is safe as it is transmitted to us.

Bristol West reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, add or remove any portion of this "Online Privacy Policy" in whole or in part, at any time. Changes will be effective when they are posted. Your continued use of the site after any changes are posted will be considered acceptance of those changes. Bristol West may terminate, change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the site, including the availability of any features of the site, at any time. Bristol West may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to all or part of the site without notice or liability.

Protecting your financial identity

Identity thieves are using a high-tech scam that typically involves email spam to deceive consumers into disclosing their personal or financial information, such as credit card numbers, bank account information, Social Security numbers, passwords, and other sensitive information. The practice is commonly referred to as "Phishing" or "Carding." It is important to be aware of these bogus emails and to guard your personal and financial information.
