BestQuote Internet Security Policy

We view the security and protection of user information as a fundamentally important business objective. Our policy is to meet the highest standards to ensure that your personal information is protected. We physically secure access to our computers, which are all password protected. The information that you provide us by interacting with our site is received, stored, used and transmitted to the insurance companies in a secure and controlled environment. 

Dual-factor verification protection measures are in place to ensure that our systems can not be compromised through any unapproved password infringement.

We use extended validation secure socket layer (SSL) encryption technology to ensure that transmittal of your information is protected. Whenever possible, we use a PCI compliant payment gateway application to ensure that your payment information is transmitted over PCI DSS compliant, security-enabled networks to minimize storage issues.

Why PCI DSS? PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. This worldwide security standard was developed by the major credit card companies (the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council ) as a guideline for organizations that process card payments to help prevent credit card fraud, cracking and various other security vulnerabilities and threats.

When you request to purchase a policy from a third party administrator or insurance company by using BestQuote as the broker, we have ensured that the servers which store user information and host our website are firewall and anti-virus protected, as well as regularly scanned and tested for security vulnerabilities, and information is transmitted over the secure payment gateway applications provided directly by the insurance company(s). 

If you have any questions or concerns, we ask that you send us an e-mail to info@bestquotetravelinsurance.ca
