This notice describes new ways in which we will share your personal information within Prudential and your right to opt out of such sharing.
Protecting Your Personal Information
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. The people who are authorized to have access to your personal information need it to do their jobs, and we require them to keep that information secure and confidential.
Personal Information We Collect
We collect your personal information when you fill out applications and other forms, when you enter personal details on our websites, when you respond to our emails, and when you provide us information over the telephone. We also collect personal information that others give us about you. This information includes, for example:
- Address, email address, telephone number, and other contact information
- Income and financial information
- Social Security number
- Transaction history
- Medical information for insurance applications
- Consumer reports from consumer reporting agencies
- Participant information from organizations that purchase products or services from us for the benefit of their members or employees
Using Your Information
We use your personal information for various business purposes, including:

Sharing Your Information
We may share your personal information, including information about your transactions and experiences, within Prudential and with other companies who perform services for us or on our behalf, for our everyday business purposes, such as providing services to you and administering your account or policy. We may also share your personal information with another financial institution if you agree that your account or policy can be transferred to that financial company.
We may share your personal information within Prudential so that the Prudential companies can market their products and services to you. We may also share consumer report information within Prudential which may include information about you from credit reports and certain information that we receive from you and from consumer reporting agencies or other third parties. For those customers who have one of our products through a plan sponsored by an employer or other organization, we will share your personal information either in a manner consistent with the terms of the plan agreement or in a manner consistent with our agreement with you.
We may also share your personal information as permitted or required by law, including, for example, to law enforcement officials and regulators, in response to subpoenas, and to prevent fraud.
Unless you agree otherwise, we do not share your personal information with other companies for them to market their products or services to you. We may tell you about a product or service that other companies offer and, if you respond, that company will know that we selected you to receive the information.
