This information will be used by your chosen insurer or other applicable entity to process your application and in conducting any applicable business transactions. Additionally, we may ask you to provide us with your credit card or other payment information and social security number, which will be used (including by such third party) to process your application or collect any fees or premiums associated with your application. Where you have provided personal information to request a quote, we will use your personal information as necessary to provide you with such quote.
We may use your Internet Protocol (IP) address to help diagnose problems with our computer server, and to administer the Service. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic data.

We may disclose any information we collect about current and former customers, including nonpublic personal information, to affiliates and nonaffiliated third parties as follows:
Life insurance companies and their administrators, vendors, agents and third party service providers, that are engaged in services related to underwriting and issuing life insurance policies, as needed to perform the Service;
With another user, when you sign up for Fabric’s services via a referral link. The user that referred you may receive information indicating that you have enrolled with Fabric. You may avoid this sharing by not using a referral link to enroll;
If you were referred to us by, or use our Site or mobile application, or call center in connection with, a current or former employer, affinity group, or other organization with which you may be affiliated (or a benefits administrator or consultant associated with such employer, group or organization), we may disclose your personal information to such employer, group, organization, administrator and/or consultant. For example, we may inform such employer, group, organization, administrator and/or consultant whether or not you have enrolled in a plan.

With affiliated companies for marketing purposes and everyday business purposes.
With other nonaffiliated companies for our everyday business purposes, such as to operate our business, maintain accounts and respond to court orders and legal investigations. For example, in connection with our everyday business purposes, we may share information about you as follows:
To government or law enforcement officials, agencies, investigators, auditors or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal processes (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Fabric or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
With our third party service providers who provide services on our behalf, provide customer support, perform Service-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Service features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used; provided these third parties have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf, and we will contractually require them to protect and safeguard your personal information to at least the same extent that we do.
We may also share your Personal Information with third parties who assist us with marketing and advertising services, or provide your Personal Information directly or through marketing and advertising services to other trusted brands if we believe they offer products and services that may be of interest to you. For example, we may provide the email addresses of our customers to a third party service that uses those addresses to help us and other companies more accurately target advertising for complementary products through social media channels to each other’s customers. In that case, your email address would be disclosed to the service provider to assist in analysis and matching of customers with similar interests but not to the partners whose products and services may be complementary to our products and services. We may also provide a mix of Personal Information and demographic information such as your IP address, zip code, birthdate, height/weight, gender, and whether you are a tobacco user to a marketing service that may present you with offers for insurance if we are unable to fulfil your request for insurance. We may be compensated by the marketing service or the trusted brands for providing this information.
With your consent or at your direction, including if we notify you that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information.
We may also aggregate or otherwise strip data of all personally identifying characteristics and may share that aggregated, anonymized data with third parties.

If you wish to delete or deactivate your online account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, but note that we may retain certain information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may not be able to modify or delete your information in all circumstances, as federal and state law may require that we maintain certain types of information for a set period of time. You may not be able to delete or modify certain information that your life insurance carrier, insurance regulators or other parties require that we maintain.
