Seek Insurance Services, Inc. takes data protection seriously. When you visit a SeekMedicare website (listed below) or access our Service or your Account, we and our service providers acting on our behalf automatically collect certain data using tracking technologies like cookies and web beacons. This Cookie Notice (the “Notice”) describes what tracking technologies we use and for what we use them.
What are the SeekMedicare Websites?
What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters that we may store in your browser or elsewhere on your computer or mobile device. Cookies allow us to identify you or your device as you navigate through our publicly accessible websites or Account portals.
By themselves, cookies do not identify you specifically. Rather, they recognize your web browser. So, unless you identify yourself specifically to SeekMedicare, like signing into the Account portal, we do not know who you are just because you visited one of our websites.
You can turn off your web browser’s ability to accept cookies. But, if you do that, certain parts of our websites, Services, or your Account may not work for you.
The table below describes the specific types of cookies and the purposes they perform:
|Cookie Type||Description||Who serves these cookies||Management Settings|
|Required cookies||Required cookies make it possible for you to access your Account portal, navigate within your Account, and access information related to your Account. They also enable Web Application Firewall services to protect traffic to our websites and Service.|
Each time you log into the Account portal, a cookie containing an encrypted, unique identifier that is tied to your Account is placed on your browser. These cookies allow SeekMedicare to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the Account portal and to process your online transactions and requests.
|SeekMedicare||Required cookies are necessary to operate the Account portal, so you cannot opt out of them.|
|Functionality cookies||Functionality cookies allow our websites and Account portals to remember information you have entered or preferences you select, and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies allow you to optimize your use of our Service after logging in.||SeekMedicare||You can use your browser settings to opt out of functionality cookies. For more information on how to do that, click here. Note that opting out may affect the functionality of our websites, Service, or Account portals for you.|
|Performance cookies||These cookies collect data about how visitors use our websites. This includes data like which pages visitors go to the most, or which Service feature is accessed most often. These cookies do not collect information that individually identifies you. The data these cookies collect is aggregated and intended to be anonymous and used to improve how our websites and Service function and perform.|
We may also have third-party service providers help us track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit our websites.
|SeekMedicare||You can use your browser settings to opt out of performance cookies. For more information on how to do that, click here.|
This data given to the third-party service providers does not include information that identifies you specifically, but this data may be re-associated with information that identifies you specifically after SeekMedicare receives it.
|SeekMedicare||To learn more about how to opt out of targeting and advertising cookies, you can go to the Network Advertising Initiative page, and the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Choice page. These opt-out tools are provided by third parties, not SeekMedicare. We do not control or operate these tools or the choices that advertisers and others provide through these tools.|
What is a Web Beacon?
We use web beacons along with cookies to gather data about use of our websites and Account portals. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of data on your computer, like cookies, when you viewed a particular website tied to the web beacon, and a description of a website tied to the web beacon. For example, we may put web beacons in our Communications to you that notify us when you click on a link in an email that directs you to a website or one of its pages. We use web beacons to operate and improve our website and email communications.
What We Do with IP Addresses?
When you visit our websites, Account portals, or use our Service, we may collect your IP address to track and analyze information about the devices that are connecting to our systems and about where those devices are located. For example, we use IP addresses to track which regions visitors to our websites or consumers logging into our Account portal come from and to detect possible fraud. To help safeguard your privacy, we assign a unique identification number to the IP address and we do not retain any IP address beyond that web session.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that you can set in most web browsers. Certain state laws require us to indicate whether we honor DNT settings in your browser. SeekMedicare currently supports DNT; however, there is no accepted standard on how to respond to web browsers’ DNT signals and even when you have DNT enabled, we may still use information collected for analytics and measurement purposes or to otherwise provide the SeekMedicare Materials but we will not load any third-party trackers. You can learn more about Do Not Track here.
To manage the use of targeting and advertising cookies on our websites, consult your individual browser settings for cookies. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies, click here. Various browsers may also offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 local storage.
These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies. These third parties may use information about your visits to this and other websites to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in, which may be unrelated to SeekMedicare. They may also employ technology to measure the effectiveness of such advertisements.

Information privacy is a constant responsibility, so we may update this Cookie Notice as we adopt new or modified personal data and privacy practices. We will post any changes we make to this Cookie Notice on this page. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to this Cookie Notice.
