Thank you for visiting our Web Site. When you visit this Site, we and/or Erie Insurance, the insurer we represent through this Site, (collectively, “We” or “Us”) may collect information from you.
Other Privacy Notices may apply to certain business relationships with Us, and We will provide you with any applicable privacy notice(s) at the start of each business relationship.
How We Collect, Use and Share Information
We do not collect personally identifiable information, such as name, age, contact information, or government identification numbers, through this Site without notice. When you visit this Site, We will only collect personal information that you provide voluntarily. You are not obligated to provide any requested information, but it might not be possible to process your request without it. If you are ever asked for personal information as part of your visit to this Site, and you do not want to provide that information, simply do not proceed with that function.
It may be necessary for you to provide certain information to use some of the functions on this Site. Examples of functions available through this Site are the Get an Auto Quote function, the Pay My Bill function and the Access My Account function. Each function provides information regarding whether and what information is necessary to utilize the function.
For instance, the “Get an Auto Quote,” function allows you to provide information directly to Us. We may retain a copy of the information you provide. If you use the Quick Quote or Detailed Quote functions to obtain an insurance quote, We will collect the items of information that you are asked to provide as part of the quote process. In the case of a Detailed Quote, We will also obtain a credit-based insurance score from a consumer reporting agency.
As part of the quoting process, you may be given the opportunity to save a quote, or information you have submitted as part of the quote process. Information you save may be used later as part of the quoting process or to provide you with insurance you request. Saved information may also be shared among the Erie Insurance affiliates and with your ERIE Agent if you choose to purchase insurance as a result of a quote provided to you. If you do not save the information, We will retain the information, and it may be used by Erie Insurance for research and analytical purposes, but your information will not be disclosed.
Unless otherwise noted, e-mail that may be available on this Site does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. It is possible that your e-mail communication may be accessed or viewed inappropriately by another Internet user while in transit. If you wish to keep your information completely private, you should not use e-mail.
Secure means of communicating with Us through this Site will be identified as secure.
This Site is not directed to children, and We do not request or intend to collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13.
