Information Collection and Use
Setnor Byer Insurance and Risk is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Setnor Byer Insurance and Risk collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
Name and e-mail address are requested in our feedback form on the Contact Us page. This information is used only for the purpose of replying to comments and requests for information and is not made available to any outside party.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For session cookies, once the user closes his/her browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time.
For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, he/she may still use our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Disclosure When Required By Law
We may disclose personally identifiable information when required by law.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information, such as name and e-mail address.
We take every precaution to protect our users' information.
When you submit sensitive information via the Website (such as credit card number), your information is protected with Secure Socket Layer (SSL), the industry-standard encryption software.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information offline. Our site and all customer data reside on our secure in-house server, behind our firewall. We use VeriSign as our Certification Authority (CA). Our customer database is backed up regularly, and access to personal account information is limited to only those employees who need the information to perform a specific job. Employees must use password-protected screen-savers when leaving their work area, which further protects customer information from unauthorized access.
All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. During orientation, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information remains secure and protected at all times. If you have any questions about the security at our Website, please contact us.
We send all new members a welcoming e-mail to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.
Site and Service Updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to unsubscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services, and in regard to issues relating to his/her account via e-mail or phone.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as email address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove that user's personal data provided to us. You may unsubscribe to our service by e-mailing our Customer Support or calling us at 1-800-521-9667.

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party or not.
