Why We Collect Your Information
If you use the Website to create a user account, or otherwise view or use the Services, we will collect and store personal information about you, which will include personally identifiable information (PII). PII refers to information which can be used to identify an individual’s identity, such as a name or social security number, alone or when combined with other personal or identifying information which is linked or linkable to a specific individual, such as date and place of birth.
What Information is Shared and With Whom
We do not rent or sell your personal information for advertising or promotional purposes. We may share your information with our authorized affiliates, subsidiaries, or divisions and with their respective officers, directors, employees, accountants, attorneys, and agents, or with our business partners solely to provide you with the Services or comply with law. In certain circumstances, we may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you e-mail or postal mail, provide customer support, assess your interest in our services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. Unless we inform you otherwise at the time of collection, all such authorized third parties are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide the Services to you or on behalf of us or as required by law.
We may provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it. There may be instances when we may access or disclose your information in order to protect or defend the legal rights or property of Southern Insurance Services and any affiliated companies or their employees and agents, to protect the safety and security of users, and to protect against fraud.
We may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of the assets in connection with a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy. In such an event, PII may be one of the assets transferred. If Southern Insurance Services ceases to exist for reasons other than a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy, then we will destroy your PII and not transfer it as an asset.

Providing personal information is always voluntary. We reserve the right to limit, modify, or restrict your access to the Services, this Website, or your user account at any time.
