NIPR Privacy Statement

Welcome to the National Insurance Producer Registry ("NIPR") website. Your privacy is very important to us.

NIPR uses accepted best practices to protect your information. We comply with applicable laws and security standards. This privacy statement explains our privacy practices with regard to collecting and using your information.

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies. By accessing or using this website, you agree to this privacy policy and any updates to the policy.

Collection of Information
Information we collect from you may include:  information you provide by filling out forms and applications on our website; records and copies of your correspondence, including email addresses; your responses to surveys; and/or the details of transactions you complete through our website. If you contact customer service via email or phone, we may collect your name, contact information or other personally identifiable information.

As you interact with our website, NIPR may use data collection technologies to collect information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. NIPR collects and stores the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, and the date and time you accessed the NIPR site. NIPR also tracks the pages visited within its site. This information is collected for systems administration, for analyzing and improving the usability and value of the material available on the NIPR Web Site and for transmitting information to the states.

NIPR uses a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

NIPR’s website relies upon cookies to tailor the information delivered to the user. Cookies are small web-generated files that are stored on your computer hard drive in order to collect information about your activities on a particular web site. Cookies are also used to store application data while the application is in use.
You do not need to reveal any personally identifiable information to browse the NIPR website.

Online Tracking
NIPR does not collect personally identifiable information through online tracking.

How We Use your Information
NIPR uses information collected to process your requests, communicate back to you, answer customer service requests and improve our website. NIPR may also use this information to create general mailing lists to send customers marketing and other promotional material.

NIPR online applications collect information for purposes of transmitting the information between the user and state insurance departments and/or processing the information for the user. Some NIPR applications require the user to enter into a license agreement with the NIPR. The license agreement governs the collection, use and disclosure of information while in these applications and where the terms of this Privacy Statement are inconsistent, the license agreement supersedes.

NIPR may share the information mentioned above with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners ("NAIC").

NIPR does not provide customer information collected to third parties other than in aggregated form.

Security of Information
NIPR views security of confidential and private information as a top priority. NIPR provides secure transmission of sensitive and personal information from your computers to the NIPR's Web Server. NIPR encrypts many of its services using the industry standard SSL (security locket layer) encryption. NIPR restricts access to personal information to employees, contractors and agents who need to know the information and who are subject to confidentially obligations.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure and NIPR does not ensure or warrant the security of the transmission of information.

Correction and Opt-Out Procedures
If your personally identifiable customer information changes, we will endeavor to correct, update or remove the personal data provided to us. Please visit the Web page www.nipr.com/index_help.htm to find the contact information or send your request for change to NIPR Marketing at marketing@nipr.com.

Links to Other Websites
NIPR provides links to third-party websites as a convenience to its users. The inclusion of any link does not imply an endorsement or recommendation of the third-party organization, its website, or its products and services. NIPR has not reviewed and is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such websites.

Notification of Change
NIPR reserves the right to change its privacy policy. The most current privacy policy will be posted on the NIPR website so you are always aware of what information NIPR collects, how it is used, and under what circumstances, if any, it is disclosed

NIPR's Privacy Statement is not intended to supersede or modify the terms of any license agreement between NIPR and a third party and where inconsistent, the terms of the license agreement control.
