NWCS may obtain non-public personal information, such as name, address, date of birth, driver license number, telephone number, family status, personal assets or income, driving record, previous insurance and claims experienced, as well as general underwriting information concerning risk exposure, policy coverages and premiums, in order to provide professional services to you. The collection process is essential to the workers compensation PEO products we provide. We collect personal information about you from different sources, including:
Consent to collect may be express and implied. Express consent is explicit and obtained through verbal or written means. Implied consent is inferred when the purpose for which personal information is collected is obvious by the very nature of the transaction.
Information Sharing and Use
We only disclose personal information about our customers and former customers as permitted by law. Generally, this includes disclosures to third parties to effect, administer, or enforce, your transactions with us, or in connection with servicing your insurance/PEO policy. These third parties may include independent insurance producers, independent contractors, such as automobile repair facilities and property inspectors, independent claims representatives, insurance support organizations, auditors, attorneys, courts, and government agencies. We may also disclose your personal information to other financial institutions with whom we have joint marketing agreements. Before disclosing your personal information, we require these parties to enter into an agreement with us that includes a confidentiality provision.
We may also collect and process information from you for the following purposes.
We may also share information about our transactions, such as payment history and products purchased, and experiences, such as claims made with you, within our NWCS family of companies, and carriers. NWCS does not sell your personal information to others, and we do not provide your information to third parties, outside of your chosen carriers for their own marketing purposes. NWCS may use personal information in order to offer other services and products, available through NWCS, its carriers, or its affiliates.

What is Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
Personally Identifiable Information, or PII, means information that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual’s identity, either alone or when combined with other personal or identifying information, that is linked, or linkable, to a specific individual. Some information that is considered to be PII is available in public sources, such as telephone books, public websites, and university listings. This type of information is considered to be Public PII, and includes, for example, first and last name, address, work telephone number, email address, home telephone number, and general educational credentials. The definition of PII is not anchored to any single category of information or technology. Rather it requires a case-by-case assessment of the specific risk that an individual can be identified. Non-PII can become PII whenever additional information is made publicly available, in any medium, and from any source that, when combined with other available information, could be used to identify an individual.
