This includes basic information such as your IP address, when you visited, the website from where you came prior to visiting us, the website where you go when you leave our website, your computer’s operating system, and the type of web browser that you are using. Our website automatically records this basic information about you.
We may also collect any data that you provide us by posting it at our website or by e-mail. You can always choose not to provide us with information. However, if you do withhold information, we may deny you access to some or all of our website’s services and features.
Some transactions between you and our website may involve payment by credit card, debit card, checks, money orders, and/or third party online payment services. In such transactions, we will collect information related to the transaction as part of the course of doing business with you, including your billing address, telephone number, and other information related to the transaction.
What We Do With Your Information
Why do we collect your information? We help consumers shop for insurance and various other products by connecting consumers with insurance agents or other vendors, as applicable. By clicking “Get My Quotes” and seeking a quote request, you authorize and agree that we may use the information you share with us to help match you with insurance providers or other vendors (as applicable) through introducing you to insurance agents, insurance companies, and/or other vendors, as applicable, who also assist us and you in finding insurance agents, insurance companies, discount program representatives and/or other requested products or services, as applicable (we refer to all of these as “Providers”, and we sometimes refer to both consumers and Providers as our “users”) to help you obtain free quotes for insurance, discount health plans or other products or services, as applicable. Insurance companies establish their rates using a variety of criteria. Since we deal with many Providers, the more detailed information you provide to us, the more accurate a quote our Providers may help you locate.

Other Usage and Offerings Including Third Party Marketing Communications Unrelated to Insurance. From time to time we may seek to make available additional offerings and services including those that may not be insurance-related. In doing so, we will strive to give our users choices about whether or not you would like to continue to receive future promotional or marketing communications from us either directly or on behalf of others whose offerings we think may be of interest to you. For example, at the time of registration, if you choose, you will have the option to receive email marketing communications directly from third parties with whom we share such information for their direct marketing purposes. We require these third parties to obey the law and to honor any request by you to stop sending commercial email messages or communications. In determining which third parties with whom we might share your personal information for direct marketing purposes or, in identifying which offerings we think may be of interest to you, we may use and analyze information you have provided to us consistent with and as permitted by applicable law. If you choose not to receive such marketing communications, you may still receive certain relationship or transactional communications from us as described herein. If you would like to opt-out of particular types of information sharing please contact us via the address below.
