Information Collection and Use
Western National may collect certain information about you in the operation of its business. This information falls generally within three categories:
- Information necessary to properly underwrite risks and charge a fair premium. This may include information you provided on the application for insurance, motor vehicle reports, credit reports, or past claims information.
- Information necessary to fairly evaluate claims. This may include information you provided on loss reports, information maintained by governmental agencies such as police and fire departments, motor vehicle information, medical records, employment records, wage and salary verification, credit reports, information from other insurers, information about past claims, and other information necessary to evaluate claims.
- Finance information related to premium payments. This may include credit card numbers, bank account information, or other financial information.
Western National does not sell your private information. We do not make available your private information to nonaffiliated companies for marketing purposes. Western National only shares information when it is necessary to conduct our insurance business. Information may be disclosed to insurance support groups that provide data for underwriting and claims purposes. In addition, information may be shared with adjusters, attorneys, auditors, agents or others that Western National retains to work on your or its behalf or by individuals that you retain, such as body shops or contractors, to work on your behalf. Western National may disclose claim information to other insurers or other parties during the handling of claims, during litigation surrounding those claims, or after claims have been resolved to the extent permitted by law.
