2. PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED

The mission of miEdge is to provide insurance professionals with the tools to enable them to be more productive and successful. To achieve our mission, we make services available through our website and mobile applications to help you learn, work, find opportunities, make decisions, and make deals. By subscribing to miEdge, you voluntarily and willingly provide us certain information, including personally identifiable information, which we collect in order to provide the Services.

We collect your personal information in the following ways:

A. Registration. In order to become a User, you must provide certain information to create an account, including name, address, phone numbers, email address, employer, type of producer, and password. Like other passwords, you should choose one that is known only by you. You acknowledge that this information is personal to you, and by creating an account on miEdge, you allow miEdge, to identify you.

B. Profile Information. Once you become a User, you may provide additional information to miEdge. Providing additional information about yourself beyond what is minimally required at registration is entirely up to you, but providing additional information enables you to derive more benefit from miEdge by helping miEdge to better customize your user experience. Any information you provide at registration or in the Profile section may be used by miEdge as described in the Terms of Service and this Privacy Policy, including for the purpose of serving advertisements through the service. If you decide not to share certain information, you may not receive the full benefit of being a miEdge User.

C. Customer Service. We may collect information through the miEdge website in order to, among other things, accurately categorize and respond to customer inquiries and investigate breaches of our terms.

D. Site Usage. We may collect information about the fact that you use certain features and functionality of miEdge, interact with third party applications, click on ads, or participate in research initiatives like polling and surveys on miEdge.

E. Cookies. Like most websites, we use cookies and web log files to track site usage and trends, to improve the quality of our service, to customize your experience on miEdge, as well as to deliver third party advertising to Users on the miEdge site. A cookie is a tiny data file that resides on your computer, mobile phone, or other device, and allows us to recognize you as a User when you return to the miEdge website using the same computer and web browser. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use miEdge. One type of cookie, known as a "persistent" cookie, is set once you've logged in to your miEdge account. The next time you visit the miEdge website, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing User so you will not need to log in before using the Services. In order to access or change any of your private information (like a credit card number), however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Another type of cookie, called a "session" cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the miEdge website. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser.

In the course of serving advertisements or optimizing the Services to our Users, we may allow authorized third parties to place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Any information provided to third parties through cookies will not be personally identifiable but may provide general segment information (e.g., your producer type or geography, or information about your targeted industries or Partners) for greater customization of your user experience. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. miEdge does not store unencrypted personally identifiable information in the cookies.

F. Log files, IP addresses and information about your computer and mobile device. Due to the communications standards on the internet, when you visit the miEdge website, we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave miEdge. miEdge also receives the internet protocol ("IP") address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, mobile device operating system (if you are accessing miEdge using a mobile device), as well as the name of your ISP or your mobile Partner. We use this information to analyze overall trends to help improve the service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties without your permission, except as described in Section 2.F ("Compliance with Legal Process"), below.

G. Linked Accounts. If you link your miEdge account to another account or service, or use other third party sites or services in conjunction with your miEdge account, we may collect information related to your use of third party sites and services accessed through miEdge or when you access miEdge through a third party site or service.

H. Rights to Access, Correct and Eliminate Information About You. You have a right to access, modify, correct and eliminate the data you supplied to miEdge. If you update any of your information, we may keep a copy of the information that you originally provided to us in our archives for uses documented in this policy. You may request deletion of your information at any time by contacting miEdge customer service. We will respond to your request within thirty (30) days.

Whether or not you decide to participate in a poll or survey is completely up to you.

After you complete a poll, you will be given access to the aggregate responses of the poll on a results page. Some third parties may target advertisements to you on the results page based on your answers in the poll.

We may use third parties to deliver incentives to you to participate in surveys or polls. If the delivery of incentives requires your contact information, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information to the third party fulfilling the incentive offer, which will only be used for the purpose of delivering incentives and/or verifying your contact information. It is up to you whether you provide this information, or whether you desire to take advantage of an incentive.

We will not disclose any personally identifiable information to any third parties in connection with the conduct of any polls or surveys. Your consent to use any personally identifiable information for the purposes set forth in the poll or survey will be explicitly requested by the party conducting it.

Testimonials may include your name and other personal information that you have provided.

G. Compliance with Legal Process. It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information and/or information about your activities as a miEdge User when required by subpoena or other legal process, or if miEdge has a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (a) investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (b) to enforce the User Agreement, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third party claims or allegations, or to protect the security or integrity of our site; and/or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property or personal safety of miEdge, our Users, employees, or others.

B. Default Settings. miEdge has established what we believe to be reasonable default settings that most professionals desire.

To protect any data you store on our servers, miEdge also regularly audits its system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a tier-one, secured-access data center. However, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to miEdge.

miEdge is the first tool we have found that can provide us real time 5500 data intelligence. The data is up to date and accurate so we feel confident using its dynamic search feature to find companies that may be out of compliance. As a UBA member firm, our partnership with miEdge is invaluable.

We have used FreeERISA, Judy Diamond and many others, but nothing compares to the user-friendly miEdge system. Their 5500 information is very accurate and updated regularly. We've found this gives us a distinct advantage when meeting with a prospect to discuss fees and whether they are in compliance. If you're considering purchasing a prospecting database, I would highly recommend you contact the miEdge team for an overview.
