The privacy of your non-public personal information is of the utmost importance to Edwards Risk Management, Inc. Any information gathered by us will be kept strictly confidential and will only be used in ways for which you have specifically consented. Our handling and protection of non-public personal information is governed by federal and state privacy laws and regulations.
It is our goal to demonstrate the Edwards Risk Management, Inc. commitment to your privacy. Listed below are our answers to some common questions about privacy and security.
What do you track and record?
You are not required to provide non-public personal information or reveal your identity to browse our public website. When visitors access our public pages, our web servers log the IP address (the numeric internet address of a computer). We do not link IP addresses to any personal information. IP address tracking allows us to track a visitor's session, but the visitor remains anonymous. This provides information about parts of the site visited and the length of time spent there. We also record the information that your browser provides such as browser type and version (for example; Internet Explorer 9.0, Mozilla Firefox 5.0, etc.). We use this information to administer our system and improve the information and services offered on our public website.
What about email addresses?
We receive your online information only when you choose to disclose it, for example, by requesting information from us by using the "Contact Us" link and providing us with an email address. We do not use email addresses provided in this manner for email mass marketing.
We welcome your comments or questions about our website and have provided general e-mail contacts for that purpose. We will share your comments and questions with our staff and those employees most capable of addressing your questions and concerns.
Please note that your e-mail, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone at the numbers provided at various locations on our sites.
We have adopted and adhere to stringent security standards designed to protect non-public personal information against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. Among the safeguards that ERMI has developed for this site are administrative, physical and technical barriers that together protect this web site and our other internal systems from unauthorized access or use. We periodically subject our site to simulated intrusion tests and have developed comprehensive disaster recovery plans.
