WAIC.com contains links to other websites. These other websites are not under Workmen’s direct control, and they may collect information about you that Workmen’s does not. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of linked websites.
Protecting Your Personal Information from Unauthorized Access
We limit employee access to customer information to those employees with a legitimate business reason for such access. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information from being accessed by unauthorized persons. We also conduct regular risk assessment, risk management and control, and oversight of our service providers to assure the effectiveness of these safeguards.

California Consumer Privacy Act
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA"), California residents have the right to request that we disclose:
- The categories of personal information that we have collected about you,
- The categories of sources from which personal information is collected,
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling information,
- The categories of third-parties with whom we share personal information, and
- The specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you.
Much of this information is provided in this Privacy Statement. You also have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you. You may submit a request by clicking here, or by calling (800) 928-8221. Please be aware, however, that the CCPA does not apply to information that we collect and share in the normal course of our insurance business, such as information collected when you request a quote, purchase a policy, or when we are investigating and paying claims. The CCPA also does not apply to information you may have provided in connection with an employment or brokerage relationship with our company. So we will be unable to delete such information, and other legal obligations require us to retain it.
We cannot provide any information unless we are able to verify the identity of the person making a request. You may use an authorized agent to submit a CCPA request on your behalf, in which case we will require proof that the agent has been authorized.
You have the right to be free from discriminatory treatment for exercising your privacy rights under the CCPA. Workmen’s Auto Insurance Company does not and will not sell your personal information to others.
If you have a CCPA-related complaint, or if you wish to provide notice of an alleged violation in accordance with California Civil Code section 1798.150(b), it must be sent in writing to CCPA@waic.com, or to the mailing address below.
