Sharing Personal Information

CAPIC may disclose your personal information to an affiliated company or third party for a business purpose. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.

We share your personal information with the following categories of third parties:

  • Service providers
  • Data aggregators

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 a leader in the professional liability insurance industry. We will not disclose personal information to any non-affiliated third parties without your prior authorization, except as necessary to conduct our business or as permitted or required by law. CAPIC will not disclose your personal information for promotional purposes, and we will not sell, trade, or rent your information to third parties without your permission.

We follow generally accepted industry standards for privacy and security to protect the personal information you submit to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. If you have questions about security of the transmission of personal information, you can contact us at



We retain personal information when we have an ongoing legitimate business purpose or are legally required to do so. Our retention period depends upon the type of data involved. If we no longer have a legitimate business need to retain your data, we will either delete or anonymize it, or if that is not possible, we will securely maintain and isolate your data until deletion is possible and in accordance with applicable federal and state law.



CAPIC welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that CAPIC has not adhered to this Statement, please contact us at We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and address any issue or concerns.
