Martin Insurance Brokers (‘MIB) is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy and would like you to feel safe when giving your details. To provide you with relevant information and respond to your requests, we sometimes request that you provide us with information about yourself.
This Privacy Notice will inform you of the information we gather and how it is used. MIB will identify itself on all web pages and in correspondence. MIB maintains the same privacy practices with respect to data that is collected offline and this notice also covers those methods of data collection and use. MIB complies with EU General Data Protection Directive (‘GDPR’) for the collection, use and retention of personal information from European Union member countries.
What information we gather
In general, you may visit this website without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. MIB collects domain information from your visit to customise and improve your experience on our website.
This website may collect certain information from your visit, including the date and time of your access, the pages you have accessed, the name of the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the Internet Protocol (IP) address by which you are accessing the Internet, and the Internet address from which you linked to our site, if applicable. We use this information to better understand how our website is being used so that we can improve its performance.
Some portions of this website, for example, our Contact Us form, may request that you give us information about yourself, from which we are able to identify you, such as your name, e-mail address or phone number.
Use of information we gather
When we collect information about you, we intend to tell you why we are asking for the information and what we intend to do with it. You will have the option of not providing the information, in which case you may still be able to access other parts of this website, although you may not be able to access certain services. In certain areas of our website, we may, where appropriate, enable you to ‘opt in’ to certain uses of your information, for example, personal data and direct marketing. Data will not be held for longer than is necessary, credit card transactions will be held for the duration of the transaction and general client details will be held while you are a customer.
The information we collect about you or your computer is used to run the website, respond to your requests or process any transactions you have requested. It may also be used to verify your identity, send you information or contact you in relation to a MIB product or service that you are using or that we believe may be of interest to you after you have chosen to ‘opt in’.
Sharing information with third parties
In certain instances, we may make your information available to third parties with whom we have a relationship, where that third party is providing services on our behalf. We will only provide those third parties with information that is necessary for them to perform the services and we take measures to protect your information.
The information we collect may be used, stored and processed in the EU, UK, United States, Switzerland or in any other country in which MIB does business. By providing the information via the website, you are consenting to the transfer of the information outside of your country to any country (including countries which may not have the adequate levels of protection).
MIB may disclose information it has collected about you on the website if required to do so by law or when necessary to protect the rights of MIB or its employees.
MIB’s intent is to strictly protect the security of your personal information, honour your choice for its intended use and carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. We have taken appropriate steps to safeguard and secure information we collect online, including the use of encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information.
However, you should always take into consideration that the Internet is an open forum and that data may flow across networks with little or no security measures, and therefore such information may be accessed by people other than those you intended to access it.
How to update and/or amend the personal information you have provided
You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information (subject to certain limitations) and have it corrected, if it is inaccurate or out of date. To exercise your Right of Access or to update your details under your Right of Rectification or Erasure, please email your request to the contact address below with proof of identity.
This website contains links to other websites. MIB is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. MIB uses pixels, transparent GIF files and other methods to help manage online advertising.
If you have any questions or comments about our privacy notice or practices, please contact us. MIB may modify or update this privacy notice at any time without prior notice. You can check the ‘Last Updated’ date below to see when the notice was last changed. We encourage you to check this notice regularly so that you continue to be aware of how we are protecting your personal information. Your continued use of the website constitutes your consent to the contents of this privacy notice, as it may be modified from time to time.
