HOW WE USE, SHARE AND PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We restrict access to your personal information to those employees or third
parties who require the information to provide products or services you expect
from the leader in the professional liability, workers’ compensation, and
medical technology and life sciences insurance industries. We will not disclose
your personal information to any non-affiliated third parties without your prior
authorization, except as we deem necessary to conduct our business after
assessing risk and as permitted or required by law. ProAssurance will not
disclose your personal information for promotional purposes, and we will not
sell, trade or rent your information to third parties.
We follow generally accepted industry standards, including encryption and multifactor authentication, to protect the personal information you submit to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the internet is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have questions about security on our website, you can contact us.
COMPLIANCE WITH THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION
ProAssurance is a U.S.-based company. However, due to the global nature of our business, we are aware that under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), citizens of the European Union in the European Economic Area (EEA) have a number of rights in connection with their personal data. These rights apply only in certain circumstances and are subject to certain exceptions. The rights include the following:

- Right to Erasure/Right to be Forgotten. You have the right to request that any of your Personal Data being stored or processed by ProAssurance is deleted from our records. However, while we can delete your Personal Data from our current records, copies of your data may be stored in ProAssurance’s inactive and archived records and will be deleted in accordance with our then-current document management policy. In some cases, your Personal Data may continue to be stored in archived records of transactions where ProAssurance is required by law to retain such records.

STORING OF CREDIT CARD AND CHECKING ACCOUNT NUMBER(S) FOR ONLINE PAYMENT
PICA does not store your credit card number(s). We may retain and use other nonpublic personal information about you in order to conduct financial transactions authorized by you. For the purpose of on-line credit card payments and electronic check payments, nonpublic personal information may also be stored by PayPal, Inc. (PayPal), which handles the processing of all of PICA's on-line credit card payments and electronic check payments. Both PICA and PayPal are responsible for maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your information. When processing additional on-line credit card payments, we reveal only partial credit card numbers to prevent the entire number from being accidentally revealed to unauthorized third parties. However, the full number is sent to the appropriate processing entity when you approve payment.
You should take appropriate measures to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer, including not sharing your password with others and always logging off when you are done using a shared computer.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CHILDREN'S PRIVACY
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
