Information We Collect
The personal information we collect depends on the specific insurance product You have an interest in.
Information from Individuals:
All personal information obtained from You directly is for the express purpose of assisting You in obtaining the best insurance policy. This information may ultimately be used to complete You(r) insurance application if You decide to apply for coverage. We also get additional information from any additional supplemental forms that may be required with the application paperwork. This may include information such as:
- Name, address, telephone number, date of birth and social security number.
- Income, assets and investment preferences.
- Information on health and habits, if You apply for life insurance or make a claim.
- Information to process transactions or to conduct online transactions.
- Personal medical information including the names addresses and telephone numbers of doctors.
Information from Third Parties
If required, we may also obtain information from third parties. For example, insurance providers may be required to obtain additional information in order to evaluate You(r) application or to verify You(r) identity. This additional information may include:
- Health history from medical providers and the Medical Information Bureau, Inc. (MIB, Inc.) MEG Financial may, with You(r) permission, use You(r) medical reports to shop You(r) options. We will not take this approach without You(r) consent and HIPPA compliance.
- Personal and credit information from consumer reporting agencies. MEG Financial will not directly access credit reports from consumer reporting agencies or financial institutions.
- Employment and benefit information from employers, plan sponsors and administrators
- Information from other companies about contracts or accounts transferred to us
Consumer reporting agencies may keep the information they collect. They may share that information with others to the extent allowed by law. If You contact another insurer to apply for life or health insurance or make a claim, the MIB, Inc. will, by law, supply that company with any of You(r) information that it has on record.
How We Collect You(r) Information
We keep records of all client transactions. This may include information such as:
- Benefits, contract values, payments and account activities.
- Beneficiaries and claims.

MEG Financial collects personal medical information only to underwrite life and disability insurance or process claims.

You can be assured that You(r) personal medical information will only be used to help You obtain the most favorable insurance products that fit You(r) given circumstances.
MEG Financial does not share medical information for marketing purposes. We only share it within strict limits as allowed or required by law. We will, only with You(r) express permission, allow several insurance companies to review You(r) medical records simultaneously on a “trial basis” in an effort to obtain multiple competitive offers.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data compiled in our Site log files. The information in the log files include, You(r) IP (internet protocol) address, You(r) ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser You used to visit our Site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time You visited our Site and which pages You visited throughout our Site.

Within MEG Financial
The law allows us to share the personal information listed above with third parties that help us conduct business. For example, We may share personal information to help secure better insurance offers in the event that normal channels are not delivering the best results. This will specifically be within the confines of insurance underwriting.
MEG Financial shares only the information our insurance companies and brokerage specialists need to carry out their duties most effectively. We require that they use it only for that purpose and keep all information confidential.
MEG Financial may share information with other third parties involved in providing or maintaining You(r) insurance policy. We share only the information needed to perform their specific duties. This may include:
- Any joint insurance agent
- You(r) physician and insurance support organizations such as MIB, Inc.
- Employers, plan sponsors and administrators
MEG Financial will share personal information if You direct or authorize us to do so, or if we are required to do so by law enforcement, governmental or regulatory agencies.
