Overview

This Privacy Notice describes the information collection, use, and disclosure practices with respect to AIP Marketing Alliance, an Integrity Company (“we,” “us”, “our,” or the “Company”) and its website, aipma.com, and any other websites or platforms that the Company may create in the future (the “Platform”).

The purpose of the Platform is to provide information and tools to licensed insurance agents and prospective insurance agents (“Agents”). We also receive information about individuals who are interested in insurance or financial products (“Consumers”) and make such information available to licensed insurance agents who assist individuals with the purchase of the products. We may also work with “Lead Vendors” – companies that collect inquiries from Consumers and pass such inquiries to Agents and Company representatives. Lead Vendors must obtain appropriate consent from Consumers to be contacted regarding specific products before providing us with such Consumers’ information.

This Privacy Notice uses the term “Personal Information” to describe information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.

Applicability of HIPAA and GLBA

Since we facilitate the sale of a diverse range of insurance products, our processing of some information on behalf of our agents may fall under another state or federal regulatory framework, like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and related state laws, or the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”) and related state laws.

Specifically, we act as a Business Associate (as defined by HIPAA) if we receive client Protected Health Information (“PHI”) from lead vendors or on behalf of a health plan that is a Covered Entity (as defined by HIPAA). In our role as a Business Associate we collect, use, and disclose PHI to provide services for or on behalf of health plans. For more information about how PHI is used and disclosed, please review the applicable health plan’s Notice of Privacy Practices.

When we receive client information pertaining to certain insurance or financial products, we may collect non-public personal financial information, which is regulated by GLBA. For more information about how non-public personal financial information is used and disclosed, please review the GLBA Notice provided by the financial institution that issued the clients’ policies or products.

This Privacy Notice applies to personal information that is not covered by HIPAA or GLBA.

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT / SOURCES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

The table below details the categories of Personal Information that we may collect or obtain through the operation of the Platform. In addition to the sources listed below, we may collect this information from third-party service providers or vendors, including data analytics providers.

COOKIE POLICY

The website on which the Platform is hosted may use cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and similar technologies to track and enhance user experience, including technologies placed on the website by third parties, such as advertising network partners. Users’ web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our website. We may use the following types of cookies: advertising and analytics and social media.

You may choose to set your web browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, some parts of the Platform may not function properly.

Sale and Sharing of Personal Information

We facilitate the sale of insurance and financial products, and may engage in targeted advertising, which may be considered "selling" or "sharing" personal information as defined under certain state privacy laws, including California. In the last twelve (12) months, we have "sold" or "shared" the categories of personal information identified in "PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT" with advertising networks, data analytics vendors, insurance carriers, and Agents.

RETENTION OF DATA

We retain Personal Information where we have an ongoing legitimate business or legal need to do so. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, we refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:

  • Whether we have a legal or contractual need to retain the data;
  • Whether the data is necessary to provide our Platform; and
  • Whether our Consumers or Agents would reasonably expect that we would retain the data until they remove it or until their accounts are closed or terminated.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and cease any further processing until deletion is possible.

DATA SECURITY

No security is foolproof, and the Internet is an insecure medium. We cannot guarantee absolute security, but we work hard to protect our Company and you from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of Personal Information that we collect and store.

THIRD PARTY APPLICATIONS AND INTEGRATIONS

Our Platform uses third-party applications and integrations to enhance its experience. We disclaim any and all liability and responsibility for the use of these applications and integrations, and encourage you to review their individual privacy policies before using our Platform or otherwise engaging with us. We disclaim any and all liability and responsibility for the use of these applications and integrations and encourage you to review any individual privacy notice related to those applications and integrations.
