With Trusted Services Providers
QuotePro may receive a fee for providing this information to specific third parties, such as insurance agents and carriers. For example, QuotePro insurance agency clients generate thousands of quotes and bound policies each day throughout the United States. QuotePro saves each of the insurance carrier’s name, premium quoted and premium bound for each quote and sold policy entered into QuotePro technology. QuotePro has developed a Carrier Analysis Tool (“CAT”) to help carriers analyze and price insurance premiums. Carriers pay a monthly fee for access to the CAT software developed by QuotePro. Additionally, QuotePro saves each cell phone number, address, driver name(s) and vehicle(s) that is entered into QuotePro technology. QuotePro offers a Pre-Fill service (“QP Pre-Fill”) to quickly identify clients. With the use of QP Pre-Fill, clients can receive auto insurance quotes in approximately 10 seconds. Without QP Pre-Fill, the average amount of time it takes to receive an auto insurance quote is 120 seconds. QuotePro charges a transaction fee for the use of the QP Pre-Fill service.
QuotePro may also disclose PII to third parties to market their products or services to you if you have not opted out of these disclosures.
