Privacy Policy

Waugh-Dane Insurance Brokers are committed to protect the privacy of our members and associates. As an insurance broker we have an inherent responsibility to be open and accessible while, at the same time, demonstrating the greatest respect for protection of personal privacy of our members and associates.

Accountability

The insurance brokerage is responsible for personal information under its control and shall designate a Privacy Officer who is accountable for compliance with the principles of the Code. This includes the collection, usage, disclosure, retention, and transfer of personal information to third parties for processing.

Identifying Purposes

The purposes for which personal information is collected shall be identified by the insurance brokerage at or before the time the information is collected.

Consent

The knowledge and consent of the member are required for the collection, use, or disclosure of personal information, except in specific circumstances as described within this Code.

Limiting Collection


The collection of personal information shall be limited to that which is necessary for the purposes identified by the insurance brokerage. Information shall be collected by fair and lawful means.

Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention


Personal information shall not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with the consent of the member or as required by law. Personal information shall be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.

Accuracy


Personal information shall be as accurate, complete, and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used.
