Notice of Privacy Policy to consumers

State Farm® values your privacy. This notice describes how we collect, use, secure and share non-public personal information. We are providing this notice as a result of your involvement in a claim with one of our customers and is provided whether or not you are an existing State Farm customer. You might receive this notice because you were involved:

  • In an automobile accident with a State Farm insured as the driver of another vehicle,
  • As a passenger in a vehicle involved in a claim with a State Farm insured,
  • In a claim recorded under a State Farm Homeowners policy.

It is possible State Farm customers may receive this notice and a separate privacy notice by virtue of being a State Farm insurance policyholder or owner of a financial services product.

We take your personal privacy seriously. The remainder of this letter is intended to inform you of our policies for collecting, using, securing, and sharing non-public personal information.
