  2. For information on our collection practices, see section titled “Information We Collect” and  “App Permissions.” If you do not agree with our policies and practices, do not download, register with, or use this App. By downloading, registering with, or using this App, you agree to this Privacy Policy.

2. Children’s Personal Information

The App is intended for a general audience and not directed to children under 17 years of age. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal data, please contact us at

3. Information We Collect

  1. Information You Submit
    We, and our vendors, may obtain personal information that you provide to us directly through your use of the App, such as data you submit when you complete forms, request policy information, or make payments through the App. Personal information we, and our vendors, collect may include your name, email address, phone number, and payment processing information.
  2. Information We Collect Automatically
    We or our vendors may use a variety of tracking technologies that automatically collect certain information whenever you interact with the App. This may include usage details related to your access to and use of the App, including traffic data, location data, logs, crash analytics, and/or other communication data and the resources that you access and use on or through the App, as well as device information such as internet connection information, the device's operating system, browser type, and mobile network information.

4. APP Permissions

Depending on your device or App permission settings, the App may have access to the following information from your device:

  1. Storage. The App may access your device's storage to read and write files and photos you choose to use in the App. These files and photos may be used as attachments that are sent to CAP or they may be created from attachments sent to you from CAP.
  2. Camera. The App may use your camera to take photos. You choose if you want to use photos to personalize your account or send them as file attachments when you send messages to CAP.
  3. Microphone: The App may use your microphone to capture audio for telephone calls.  The App will not store your audio data.

  5. Other information. The App may access other aspects of your device, such as to control vibration, run at startup, have full network access, use device security hardware such as fingerprint login, view network connections, prevent phone from sleeping, change audio settings, and receive data from Internet.

5. The Limited Ways We Use Your Information

We do not sell or license your information. These are the limited ways we interact with your information in connection with our mobile apps:

  1. Our mobile app lets users who are registered members through CAP access their Certificate of Coverage, contact CAP’s Rick Management Hotline, and access the CAP Website to review information, make payments or view account balances.  The app also lets users request information from CAP Physicians Insurance Agency on additional insurance policies and products. 
  2. When you choose to add a profile photo to our mobile apps, you may select an existing photo on your device or take a new photo using the camera app on your device. If you select an existing photo on your device, we store a copy of your chosen photo in app-private storage on your device. If you use the camera app on your device to take a new photo, the photo you take is first saved to your camera app and then also saved to app-private storage on your device. If you remove the photo from your profile or delete our mobile apps, the copy of the photo is deleted from the app-private storage, but the photo saved to your camera app remains available in your camera app until you choose to delete it.
  3. When you choose to view documents (such as letters or images) using our mobile app, to make the files viewable for you we temporarily store copies on your device in app-private storage. The temporary copies are deleted when you close your session on our mobile apps.
  4. Our mobile app will ask for access to File, Photos and Media to allow users to upload or download documents and message attachments in correspondence CAP or the CAP Agency.
  5. Our mobile app will ask for access to wi-fi and cellular data connection to monitor the connection to better optimize your experience with the App.
  6. We have an option to delete the user account within the app as requested by Apple Store Guideline 5.1.1. As a result of account deletion via our mobile app, your account information will not be deleted by CAP and will remain available directly through our website.  Registered members can always re-create a new account within our mobile app to re-obtain access to your account information. 
  7. While you use our app, we collect non-identifying information so we can provide customer service to you to understand how people use our mobile app so we can improve our products. This information includes the time you began using the app, any error messages or codes, the model of device used and its operating system, and the version of our mobile app used. If you use Android devices, we also collect your connection type (cellular or Wi-Fi) during an error.
  8. If you contact us, we may keep a record of the communication. You can decide how much information you want to share with us in those cases.
