Notice of Privacy Policy
Barton Mutual Insurance Company
December 6, 2018

By federal law, we are required to provide you notice of our privacy policy concerning information we gather about you. This notice explains where we get information and to whom we disclose that information.

We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone, except as permitted by law. No information about a customer will be shared unless the company is allowed or required to do so under applicable laws or unless the customer has authorized Barton Mutual Insurance Company to share the information. The only exception to this rule is if we have actual knowledge that a particular piece of information is of public record.

We do not sell your personal information to third parties.

How We Protect Your Information

We restrict access to nonpublic personal information to employees, agents and third parties on a need-to-know basis. We require those individuals to whom we permit access to your customer information to protect it and keep it confidential. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable regulatory standards to guard your nonpublic personal information.

Information We Collect

Upon your application for a policy, or when handling a claim you present, we may collect and maintain certain nonpublic personal information about you and the members of your household from the following sources:

  • Information we receive from you on insurance applications or other forms (such as name, address, social security number, date of birth, marital status and financial information);
  • Information about your transactions with us or others (including payment history or account balances);
  • Information we receive from a consumer reporting agency (such as credit relationships and history); and
  • Information you authorize us to collect.

Information We Disclose

We may disclose information to non¬affiliated third parties, but only as permitted by law and for the purpose of fulfilling our obligations to you specifically. Examples are as follows:

  • Independent claims adjusters, appraisers, and attorneys during claims handling;
  • Your insurance agent;
  • Independent inspectors;
  • Governmental agencies, in response to subpoenas or threats thereof, or in accordance with statutory requirements;
  • Our reinsurers;
  • Other financial service companies for premium payments, but only at your request, and only the information required to enable those alternate methods.

Your insurance agent, an independent contractor with us, may have additional information about you.

Should you have questions or comments regarding our privacy policy, we would like to hear from you. Please address your questions to:
