For purposes of this Privacy Notice, “personal information” means any information that identifies or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular individual or household.  Personal information does not include publicly available information, deidentified data, or aggregate consumer information.

Please carefully read this entire Privacy Notice to understand our policies and practices regarding your personal information.  Your use of our website as well as our products and services will be deemed acceptance of our privacy policies and practices.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.  Such measures involve strict physical, electronic, administrative, and procedural safeguards.   

As part of Apogee’s privacy policy, we restrict access to your personal information to those who need it to provide our products and services to you.  Our employees are also trained to safeguard customer information.

We may use personal information collected about you:

  • For various communications with you, as needed
  • To carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us

Third Parties/Disclosure of Collected Personal Information

We will not sell collected personal information to any third parties whatsoever.  Additionally, we will only disclose personal information to third parties when required and permitted by law.  For example, we may disclose collected personal information:

  • To enforce or apply our agreements with you
  • If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Apogee, our customers, and/or others
  • With state insurance departments or other governmental or law enforcement authorities if required by law or to protect our legal interests, including in cases of suspected fraud or illegal activities
  • If ordered by a subpoena or other court order
