Our Privacy Assurance
Thank you for choosing Barton Mutual Insurance Company. In the course of our business relationship with you, we collect information that is necessary to provide our products and services. The privacy of our customers is important to us, and we are committed to its protection. We have developed this privacy policy to inform you of how we handle your personal information in compliance with federal and state law.

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, our affiliates 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 share information with our affiliates in an effort to fulfill our mission of service to you. 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.

Sharing Information with Affiliates
Barton Mutual Insurance Company encompasses various affiliates1 that offer a variety of financial products and services in addition to insurance. We may share nonpublic personal information about you with our affiliates in order to provide necessary services for your products or accounts or to tell you about other products or services offered by the companies within our organization that we believe you may find useful.

Your Choice
We are permitted by federal law to share with our affiliates our transaction and experience information with you. It is your decision, however, to opt out of sharing other information with our affiliates. Federal law also gives you the right to limit some, but not all, marketing from our affiliates.

If you previously contacted us and asked us not to allow other Barton Mutual Insurance affiliates to use your personal information, your previous choice still applies and you do not need to contact us again.
