When you purchase insurance through SécuriGlobe, you are required to provide your contact information and any payment information (such as your credit card information) in order to allow us to process your request or finalize your transaction.
You can browse through our Websites as an anonymous user. However, if you wish to access any special functions of our Websites or purchase insurance on-line, you will be prompted to enter Personal Information such as your name, your e-mail address, your postal address, your phone number or your credit card information. We will use this information to create your account, contact you regarding your transaction, reply to your queries and make allowance to the Websites functions you have chosen to use.

Sharing on Facebook, Twitter and “Send to Friend”
While visiting our Websites, the “Send to Friend” function can be selected to flag pages of interest to a friend. The information provided is used in a one-time e-mail sent to your friend to invite them to visit our Websites. Your friend will not be added to a mailing list and they will not be sent any other e-mail by us unless they agree to it. When you use the “Send to Friend” tool, you communicate with your friend directly and therefore agree that you - and not SécuriGlobe – are responsible for this communication. Should you provide the Personal Information of another person (e-mail address, etc.), you represent and certify that you have obtained the necessary consent from that person so that we can be allowed to use the information for the purposes intended.
As you browse our Websites, we may collect information about the IP address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet provider, the date and time you have accessed our Websites, the Internet address of the Website that has redirected you to our Websites, the operating system you use, the Website sections you have visited, the pages you have read and the images you have displayed on the Website, as well as the contents you have downloaded from the Website. This information is used to manage our Websites and our system, and to improve our Websites.
Links to other Websites
We sometimes combine the Personal Information you provide us with information originating from other sources, including information validating your address or other available information you have provided us. This allows us to maintain the accuracy of the information we collect and helps us provide a better service.
Will SécuriGlobe share your Personal Information?
SécuriGlobe will not ever and in any way sell or rent the Personal Information of their customers to third parties. However, as part of our normal operations, we may share some of your Personal Information with third parties that work for us, or as allowed or required by law.
SécuriGlobe has taken measures to prevent the fraudulent use of your Personal Information on their Websites. SécuriGlobe has adopted the industry’s standardized authentication procedures to protect you while you are shopping on-line on their Websites, including, but not limited to, communication with financial institutions or credit scoring agencies in order to validate the authenticity and the billing information of your credit card.
Disclosure of Personal Information in compliance with the law
SécuriGlobe may disclose your Personal Information as allowed or required by law. A court of law or other entity with the authority to compel us to disclose such information may force us to do so. Should we be reasonably inclined to believe that the Personal Information could prove useful in an investigation on unlawful or illegal activities, we may disclose such information to the appropriate law enforcement authorities or investigation agencies.
How does SécuriGlobe protect your Personal Information?
The safety of your Personal Information is an absolute priority of SécuriGlobe. We use the latest protection and safety standards to protect the Personal Information you provided both on paper and electronic media, against unauthorized access, disclosure and abusive use. For example, electronic folders and records are stored in secured servers with limited access, technological tools such as firewalls and passwords are used, and we make sure that all our employees are receiving proper training on the importance of ensuring the safety and privacy of Personal Information.
Our Websites use encryption technologies such as the SSL protocol to protect your personal information during data transfers. The SSL protocol encrypts any order related information, including your name, address and credit card number.
