Recently enacted federal legislation, called the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“Act”) requires, among other things, insurance agencies and other entities to disclose their privacy policies.
At the Ohio Health Insurance Exchange (OHIEX) we realize the importance of protecting the privacy of our clients and we are committed to maintaining that confidentially. As part of our service, we may obtain certain personal information that may include your name, postal and email address and telephone number. We also may obtain your age, zip code, smoking status, and college status. Your privacy is important to us and we strictly adhere to privacy policies to protect your personal information.
We care about your privacy and want you to feel comfortable and secure in your use of our site. We urge you to read this notice explaining our online information practices. By visiting this exchange site, which is powered by Norvax quoting, you may be linked to Norvax quoting tools and are accepting of the practices described in this Privacy Notice. This site is optimized for usage in browsers that comply with W3C standards. It has been modified so that it also works in Internet Explorer 6+.
There are two types of information that may be collected:
- Personal Information - this is "individually identifiable" information you provide to us.
- Aggregate Information - Standard web server/visitor traffic information, regarding overall website traffic patterns. Normally, web servers collect this type of basic information as part of their web log processes. We do not report on individual user sessions.
How is this information used?
For certain transactions, OHIEX requests individually identifiable information from its users. For example, information requests, contributions, etc. This information may include the following:
First and last name, street address, city, state, zip code, telephone number, email address, and subject of inquiry (i.e., information requests).
In addition to information provided by our users, use of the normal Internet tracking tools associated with standard Internet protocols and web-based systems are employed. This system information is typically stored in log files and is used for aggregate reporting. Aggregate reporting includes: total number of visitors, most visited sections, peak traffic times, etc.
Log files are simply transaction records that web servers maintain. These log files are used for recording information, such as: service provider IP addresses, browser versions, referring websites, search terms used, average number of pages requested, average duration of visit, and/or total visitor traffic.
We use aggregate information gathered from your visit to better design our website. This information supplies us with a broad picture of how people use our website and helps us to manage our system and better serve our users.
