Mercury Insurance Group Privacy Statement

Mercury and its affiliated companies appreciate the trust you place in us when you ask us to help protect you and your assets. You trust us with your private, personal information when you purchase insurance from us, or if you provide us with information in connection with a claim, and we are committed to protecting this information. Mercury does not sell information about you to others.

Mercury’s Use of Your Personal Information

We treat your information with respect and concern for your privacy. We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone, except as permitted or required by law.

For example, we may share any or all of your information with our affiliated companies. We may also disclose any or all information we have collected about you to companies that perform services on our behalf.

When we make this type of disclosure it is done to service your Mercury account or policy, or to inform you about Mercury products and services. Before disclosing your information, we require these companies to agree to keep it confidential and use it only for the transaction we request.

Independent Mercury Agents

The independent insurance agents authorized to sell Mercury products and services are not Mercury employees, but they are subject to Mercury's Privacy Policy, to the extent that they sell or service our products, unless they have provided you with a copy of their own privacy policy. Because they have a unique business relationship with you, they may have additional personal information about you that Mercury does not. They may use this information differently than Mercury. Contact your Mercury Agent or advisor to learn more about their privacy practices.

Protecting Your Personal Information from Unauthorized Access

We also conduct risk assessments, risk management and control, and oversight of our service providers to assure the effectiveness of these safeguards.

Your Medical Information

We will not use or share personally identifiable medical information for any purpose other than the underwriting or administration of your policy, claim or account, or as otherwise disclosed to you when the information is collected.

California Consumer Privacy Act

Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California residents have the right to request that we disclose:

  • The categories of personal information that we have collected about you,
  • The categories of sources from which personal information is collected,
  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting or sharing information,
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share personal information, and
  • The specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you.

Much of this information is provided in this Privacy Statement. You also have the right to request that we:

  • delete any of your personal information that we collected from you,
  • correct any inaccurate information, and
  • not share your personal information with third parties.

You may submit a request online, or by calling (877) 671-7879. Please be aware, however, that the CCPA does not apply to most of the information that we collect and share in the normal course of our insurance business, such as information collected when you request a quote, purchase a policy, or when we are investigating and paying claims. We will be unable to delete or limit the sharing of such information, and we are not required to provide the disclosures itemized above with respect to that information. Other legal obligations may require or permit us to retain your personal information even if you request deletion. Mercury does not and will not sell your personal information to others.

We cannot provide any information unless we are able to verify the identity of the person making a request. You may use an authorized agent to submit a CCPA request on your behalf, in which case we will require proof that the agent has been authorized.

You have the right to be free from discriminatory treatment for exercising your privacy rights under the CCPA.

  • Categories of sources from which personal information is collected: Most personal information is obtained directly from the consumer, including internal work history, company-owned devices, such as computers and mobile devices, but some information may be obtained from external sources such as consumer reports, previous work references, medical professionals, or tax, judicial, or governmental authorities.
  • Categories of third parties to whom we disclose personal information: To the extent necessary to maintain our employee or agency relationships and comply with legal obligations, we share information with financial institutions, consumer reporting agencies, payroll and benefit administrators, employee records administrators, legal representatives, government authorities as required by law, and in response to valid subpoenas and court orders.
  • Business purpose for collecting and sharing personal information: We collect this personal information for the purposes of identification and evaluation, job application identification, job application evaluation, communications, payroll and benefit administration, security, and to comply with other legal obligations.
