How We Collect Information Through GMC Websites and Webpages
We collect two kinds of information about our online visitors through our websites and webpages: non-personal and personal information.
We collect personal information that can identify a visitor, such as name, address or policy information, only when you voluntarily provide it, and we use that information solely for purposes that are clearly identified on ther website and its webpages.
GMC does not seek or knowingly collect personal information from children.
The non-personal information we may collect includes: the visitor’s browser type and operating system details; areas of the GMC website visited; date and time of access; identification of the referring site (any site from which the visitor accessed the GMC site) and so on. We use this information to track the total number of people visiting GMC websites and to guide our efforts to improve the website.
Access to pages with content specific to agents, brokers and customers is password-protected and normally requires registration. Personal information acquired through registration is kept confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties except as may be permitted or required by law. Depending upon your relationship with us, you may receive other privacy notices from us providing additional detail about our privacy practices.
We may offer blogs, online forums or other interactive features on our websites and webpages that enable consumers to share information about our services or other issues of interest. You should be aware that any communications you submit or post to any such interactive features on our websites and webpages may be viewable by other participants or users of our websites and webpages. Therefore, you acknowledge and understand that you have no expectation of privacy or confidentiality in the content you submit for such interactive features, whether or not it contains personal information about you.
