What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Information You Provide
Rochkind Insurance actively collects information from you both by requesting specific information and by permitting you to communicate with us via information form, life insurance form, homeowners insurance form, email, and telephone (including any recorded messaging or live calls), and chat rooms, blogs, contests and other methods via the Website.

In some cases, such as when you establish or update an account or request information or materials from us, we may ask you to submit personally identifiable information in order for you to benefit from specified services, materials, activities or features. You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.
Please do not disclose any private or personal information about another person without his or her consent. That includes the person’s real name, address, email address, phone number and any other personal information that the person has not asked you to make public.
