INTRODUCTION

GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation and its subsidiaries (collectively, “GreatAmerica,” “we,” “us”, or “our”) respect your privacy and are committed to treating and using Personal Information (as defined below) about you responsibly.

Throughout this Notice, we refer to nonpublic personal information that can directly and without additional information identify you or your accounts as "Personal Information."  "Personal Information" includes information such as your name, address, email address, or phone number and other information that is not otherwise publicly available.  

It is important to know that our Websites may contain links to third party websites not controlled by GreatAmerica or covered by this Notice. We recommend that you check the privacy statements of the other websites you visit before providing personal information. 

Any dispute related to this Notice will be governed by our Terms of Use

HOW WE PROTECT THE CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

GreatAmerica uses reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please note that no company can guarantee perfect online security so you should remain careful and vigilant in your online activities.   

CHILDREN

GreatAmerica operates general audience online Services that are accessible to the public. These Services are not intended for visitors under 18 years of age. We do not knowingly market our products or services to children, nor do we knowingly collect Personal Information from children. 

INFORMATION WE AUTOMATICALLY COLLECT (NOT PERSONAL INFORMATION)

When you visit or browse our Services, we and our service partners may collect information and use "cookies," web beacons, or other objects to collect statistical and other information about your use of our Services.  The purpose of collecting this information is to help us improve the effectiveness of our Services. The collected information may include, for example, information about your computer, its unique identifiers, and its configuration, the web pages you visited or mobile applications used; the date and time of your visit; the websites you visited immediately before and after visiting our web site; and demographic and/or location-based information. The collection of this information allows for the compilation of aggregate and anonymous information about the usage of our Services, and can help us improve your use of our Services, for example, streamlining site navigation and maintaining up-to-date content for all users. Should you configure your browser to reject cookies, you may disable some of our Service’s features.

SOCIAL MEDIA
Our Services may contain applications or widgets from social media providers that allow you to interact with or share content. These widgets, such as a Facebook “Share” or “Like” button, are visible to you on the webpage you visit. Integration between our Services and social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and others may allow the social media networks to collect information about your browsing of our Services where the widgets are visible, even when you do not click on or otherwise activate the widget. Please visit the applicable social media network’s privacy policy to better understand their data collection practices and choices that they make available to you. The privacy policy of the social media network controls the collection, use and disclosure of all personal information transmitted to that network.

GreatAmerica participates in a number of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, which allow their users to create, share and exchange content and information. Any information that you post on a social media platform is also subject to the privacy policies of that social media network. These platforms may share your information with us in identifiable or aggregated form. 

DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS

We currently do not employ technology that recognizes “do-not-track” signals from your browser. 

CHANGES TO THIS NOTICE AND CONTACT INFORMATION

GreatAmerica reserves the right to amend, alter, or change this Notice at our discretion. If we make any such changes, we will revise the date at the top of this Notice.  Your continued use of the Services is deemed to be acceptance of any changes we make to this Notice.
