At Berg Benefits, it is our policy to protect your information. We know that we have a lot of information about you and want to be sure that we use it the right way.
COLLECTING AND USING PERSONAL INFORMATION
From your enrollment in your employer's plan, we may know your name, address, social security number and more. Berg Benefits also maintains data that has been provided to us or uploaded to Berg Benefits by you, our member, as well as our employer clients and Business Associates (those vendors who are associated with Berg Benefits for the placement of individual health insurance and Medicare insurance — and who have written agreements with us that specifically indicate how they will protect your information).
If your employer has provided your contact information to us, we may use that information to contact you for marketing and promotional purposes by various means, including regular mail, email or telephone. You may receive messages about programs sponsored by Berg Benefits or its Business Associates. We may also use your information to notify you about payment information and/or to communicate with you about your account.
Berg Benefits may disclose your contact information outside of Berg Benefits to our Business Associates if necessary to enable our Business Associates to perform certain functions for us. In all cases, we will disclose the information consistent with applicable laws and regulations, and we will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the purpose for which it was provided. Berg Benefits takes HIPAA seriously and provides appropriate safeguards to your personal health information (PHI) – this includes your social security number and any data you may provide us with regarding medical claims.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
We welcome your comments or questions about our website and services. You can send your comments to our customer service center at the contact us link noted at the footer of bergbenefits.com. We will share your comments and questions with our customer service representatives and those employees most capable of addressing your questions and concerns. Please note that your e-mail, like all non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead by telephone at 253-753-9930.
HOW CAN YOU STOP RECEIVING EMAILS?
Each marketing email we send to you contains an unsubscribe link through which you may easily opt-out of receiving future commercial emails from us. If you do not wish to receive additional commercial emails from bergndonian.com, simply click the unsubscribe link and follow the instructions to unsubscribe your e-mail address. If you have unsubscribed but continue to receive e-mail from us or from one of our customers, you may report this to us by calling the number on your ID card.

LINKING TO OTHER SITES
From time to time, Berg Benefits may provide links to other websites that we think might be useful or interesting – these are not owned or controlled by Berg Benefits and may be subject to separate terms and conditions and privacy policies. While we try to be proactive and ensure that appropriate protections are in place, we cannot be responsible for the privacy practices used by other website owners or the content or accuracy of those other websites. Links to various non-Berg Benefits websites do not constitute or imply endorsement by Berg Benefits of these websites, any products or services described on these sites, or of any other material contained in them.
Berg Benefits has adopted and adheres to stringent security standards designed to protect non-public personal information at bergbenefits.com against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. Among the safeguards that Berg Benefits has developed for this site are administrative, physical and technical barriers that together form a protective firewall around the information stored at this site. We are committed to being HIPAA compliant and ensuring that our Business Associates meet the same standards. We periodically subject our site to simulated intrusion tests and have developed comprehensive disaster recovery plans. We also review Business Associates' privacy and security policies on a regular basis.
