AAA Mid-Atlantic Privacy Notice
AAA MID-ATLANTIC (including its insurance and travel agencies and subsidiary companies) considers your privacy important to you and to us. In order to provide you with individualized service, we collect certain information about you (such as your name, address, date of birth and transactions with us) from information you provide on applications or other forms. We may also collect such information through your inquiries by e-mail or on our Web site. Following are descriptions of how we treat the information you provide to us for various purposes.
Information we receive in the AAA Mid-Atlantic club and travel agency:
We do not share any information about you with anyone outside our affiliated companies for solicitation or other purposes, except preferred travel partners, AAA Show Your Card & Save Program participants, and other companies that provide goods and services endorsed by AAA Mid-Atlantic, or that provide services to AAA Mid-Atlantic. We only share your information in this way to offer you products and services that best meet your interests and needs and to perform transactions that you authorize or request, or to administer, analyze, and otherwise maintain and improve AAA Mid-Atlantic programs, products and services. The companies outside our own affiliates will use this information only to promote their services to you or to provide such services to AAA Mid-Atlantic, and they are not permitted to share your information or to use it for any other purpose. We may also share your information with the AAA Club in whose territory you reside.
Information we receive in our insurance agency and in connection with financial services:
Nonpublic personal information is defined by law as any personal information about you that we obtain from you or others as part of your purchase or our delivery to you of insurance or a financial product, such as an auto loan. Nonpublic personal information may include your name, address and date of birth; details of coverage, claims and payment history; and financial transactions with us, our affiliates or others. We will only use or disclose your nonpublic personal information for the following purposes: If you apply for insurance coverage, we will collect necessary information from your application, Bureaus of Motor Vehicles, current and prior insurers, and credit information. In connection with issuing a policy, we only disclose this information to potential insurance companies and consumer reporting agencies. We also share nonpublic personal information with others to deliver insurance services (such as processing applications and renewals, administering the policy and performing customer surveys). We may also share nonpublic personal information with other AAA Clubs or financial institutions under joint marketing agreements and with companies that help us develop and market insurance or financial products. At your request, we may disclose to others that you have insurance through our insurance agency, and the name of the insurance company. Whenever we share nonpublic personal information with others, we require them by written agreement to keep your information confidential and secure and to use such information only for the limited purpose for which it was disclosed.
We safeguard your information:
We also have internal security practices to safeguard the information we have about you. We restrict access to all of your personal and account information to those employees who need to know that information in order to serve you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information, we monitor who has access to our databases, and we reinforce the privacy practices described here to our employees.
