At Adviceinsurance.com, the privacy and security of customer data is as important to us as it is to you. Physical safeguards, procedural controls and data access controls protect your data from unauthorized access. We continually monitor our systems to prevent unauthorized attempts at intrusion. Advice Insurance Agency, Inc. uses strong, 128-bit encryption and SSL, short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol for transmitting private information via the Internet. SSL uses a private key to encrypt data that is transferred over the SSL connection. This protocol is a standard used by many websites when you submit confidential information, such as credit card numbers and other personal data. SSL creates a secure connection between your browser and our server. Addresses of web pages using an SSL connection start with https: instead of http: and most browsers also display an icon of a closed padlock when you visit a page using SSL. In addition, the Policyholder Service Center portion of our website is only available to policyholders. It provides a private and secure environment to access policy and account information. To access features of our website such as quotes, policy, and billing information, you will need to use a security-enabled web browser, with 128-bit encryption installed.
