Safe Shopping and Security
Rest assured that Insurance Noodle will treat your credit card information and other personal data with the appropriate safety and security features and confidentiality standards. Credit card information will be stored on a separate server from other customer information.
For your security, orders on our site are encrypted with SSL technology on both the client and server end. Thawte has issued Insurance Noodle a unique ID, which assures visitors that they have reached our authentic site, thereby allowing communications to be encrypted. In order for SSL to work, though, you must have a browser that supports SSL technology.
Please note that e-mail may not be encrypted and cannot be considered a secure means of transmitting sensitive information. Insurance Noodle will never ask you to submit your credit card information via e-mail.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers, employer identification numbers or social security numbers and other financial information), that information is encrypted and is protected with the encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only those individuals and entities who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all parties who receive sensitive information are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. We frequently notify and/or remind those parties about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment, with access restricted.
Insurance Noodle and any affiliated insurance carriers or brokers whose products are provided through our site are the owners of the information collected on this site. Insurance Noodle may share aggregate information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties, though such summary information will not identify any specifics related to your business. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Insurance Noodle collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
Collection and Use of IP Addresses
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We use this ID to identify you anonymously in our database and to track the pages you visit on our site.
