Why We Collect Visitor Information
There are two reasons why we collect visitor information on this site.
(1) Information is collected to provide real-time, accurate life insurance quotes.
(2) Information is collected to initiate the application request process and/or to begin the purchase of life insurance.
The only personally identifying information collected on this site is provided by you, the user, voluntarily. Site usage statistics and aggregate user profiles are analyzed to see user trends and are not used to track the usage patterns of individual users.
Information Collected & How We Use It
Insurance Quote Request Form
This site provides free life insurance quotes. To provide accurate quotes, certain information must be collected, including state of residence, date of birth, gender, height, weight, coverage amount desired, term period desired, health classification of the proposed insured, and tobacco use. For simplified issue and guaranteed issue life insurance quotes, other health information may also be required.
All life insurance carriers have proprietary rate guidelines based on the previously mentioned information. To provide accurate quotes and rates, the information mentioned above must be collected.
Insurance Application Request Form
This form represents the initiation of the insurance purchasing process. By filling out this form, you are requesting contact by a member of our staff regarding your purchase of insurance. The information collected on this form (name, mailing address, email, and phone numbers) will be used only to contact you regarding your purchase of insurance. Rootfin does not sell or give away this information. Rootfin may share this information with life insurance carriers in an effort to provide the best service and products to you, our client.
This form also requests other health and lifestyle information required by the majority of insurance applications. You do not need to fill out this information online, but you will need to provide it during the application process.
