Privacy Policy

Last updated:  September 19, 2014

Walton Insurance Group has implemented this privacy policy because a fundamental component of the agency/client relationship is a client’s trust in this agency and because we respect the expectations of our clients regarding privacy and confidentiality. Protecting your privacy, along with your assets, is at the core of our business. We recognize that you expect privacy and security for your personal, corporate and financial affairs. We understand the need to safeguard our sensitive information about you that you have entrusted to us within our agency. We maintain standards and procedures designed to prevent misuse of this information.

At Walton Insurance Group, the basis of each client or consumer relationship is trust. You are doing business with Walton Insurance Group, and we are obligated to honor that relationship with great care, beginning with the information you share with us. We believe that your privacy should not be compromised.

At the same time, we want to offer you the array of insurance products and services you need to accomplish your objectives. We believe we can do both through the privacy policy outlined below.

Collection and Use of Information: Walton Insurance Group collects, retains, and uses your information only where it will help administer our business or provide you with products, services and other opportunities. The collection and retention of information is performed only for specific business purposes, and Walton Insurance Group will define that purpose when asked. Information is used to protect and administer client records, accounts and policies; to comply with certain laws and regulations; to assist in the development and/or improvement of products and services; and to understand the insurance needs of our clients in order to provide useful products and quality services. We collect the following kinds of information:

  • Information we receive on applications or other forms, such as name, address, Social Security number, assets and income;
  • Information about transactions with us, such as account balance, payment history, parties to transactions, and credit card usage;
  • Information we receive from a consumer-reporting agency, such as information relating to creditworthiness and credit

Maintenance of Accurate Information: Walton Insurance Group has established procedures to ensure that your information is accurate, current, and complete. We also pledge to respond to requests to correct inaccurate information in a timely manner. If you ever find that your account information is incomplete, inaccurate, or not current, please call us at: (517) 787-2600 or write us at 2929 Spring Arbor Rd, PO Box 3029, Jackson, MI. 49204-3029. We will correct any erroneous information in a timely manner.

Limitations on Employee Access to Information: Employee access to personally identifiable client information is limited to those with a business reason to know such information. Employees are educated on the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of your information. Employees are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of client information and those who violate this privacy policy will be subject to disciplinary measures.

Protection of Information via Established Security Procedures: Walton Insurance Group is committed to the security of your financial and personal information. All of our operational and data- processing systems are in a secure environment that protects account information from being accessed by third parties. We maintain and grant access to client information only in accordance with our internal security standards. Walton Insurance Group may link its web site to other sites. In no event, however, can Walton Insurance Group assume responsibility for the content of those sites nor their policies for the collection of client information.

Restrictions on the Disclosure of Account Information: Title V of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) generally prohibits any financial institution, directly or through its affiliates, from sharing nonpublic personal information about you with a non-affiliated third party unless the institution provides you with a notice of its privacy policies and practices such as the type of information that it collects about you and the categories of persons or entities to whom it may be disclosed. In compliance with GLBA we are providing you with this document which notifies you of the privacy policies and practices of Walton Insurance Group.

The GLBA further requires that we inform you that you have a right to prevent us from sharing nonpublic personal information about you with a non-affiliated third party for the purpose that is not specifically authorized by law is called your right to “opt out” of such information being shared.

Walton Insurance Group does not disclose any non-public personal information about its present or former clients to anyone except as permitted by law. We may, for example, disclose nonpublic personal information about clients to others for purposes of servicing their accounts with us, processing transactions that they request or authorize, or conducting credit or other verification checks. We will never provide account or personal information for the purpose of independent telemarketing or direct mail marketing of any non-insurance products or services of those companies. If we use a third party business partner, service company, or other business partner to prepare account documentation, service accounts, or for other purposes, we will make reasonable efforts to verify that business partners agree to safeguard our confidential information about you and your accounts with us and must abide by applicable law.

  • Federal law allows us to disclose information from our account records about your transactions and experience with us and does not allow you to opt out of this
