Important Notice For Victims Of Domestic Violence In New York

YOUR RIGHTS AS A CUSTOMER OF LEAP INSURANCE AGENCY LLC.

New York Insurance Law §2612 provides important protections for victims of domestic violence. These protections include prohibiting any individual, insurer or entity supervised by the New York Department of Financial Services from taking certain actions against individuals based solely on their status as a current or former victim of domestic violence. The law also establishes processes an individual, insurer or entity supervised by the New York Department of Financial Services must follow to protect the confidentiality of a person covered under a policy of insurance when that person properly presents a valid order of protection obtained against the policyholder as further explained below.

If a person covered by an insurance policy issued to another person as the policyholder delivers a valid order of protection against the policyholder or any other person, each individual, insurer or entity supervised by the New York Department of Financial Services is prohibited for the duration of the order from disclosing to the policyholder the address and telephone number of the insured, or of any person or entity providing covered services to the insured. If a child is the covered person under the policy, this right extends to the child’s parent or guardian.

If you are a customer Leap Insurance Agency, LLC and wish to initiate a request for confidentiality in connection with a valid order of protection, please contact us by phone or send a copy of the valid order of protection to:
Leap Insurance Agency, LLC, 111 Town Square Pl, Ste 1210, Jersey City, New Jersey, 07310
Phone: (800) 898-5309
Fax:

Along with your request, you may provide us with an alternative address, telephone number or other method by which to contact you. You may revoke your request at anytime by sending a letter to the address above.

We will implement your request within three (3) business days of our receipt. Once implemented we will not share your name, address, social security number or any other information from which there is a reasonable basis to believe the foregoing could be obtained, to the policyholder or other insured covered under the same policy against whom you have a valid order of protection, without your express consent.

The description of New York Insurance Law Section 2612 provided above is only a summary of the law. The complete text is available on the New York State Legislature’s website.

General Notice of Insurance Practices and Use of Consumer Reports

In order to evaluate your eligibility for insurance coverage with us and to determine the correct premium to charge you, we may order one or more reports provided by independent consumer reporting agencies.

All reports are kept strictly confidential. Where scores are used, they are processed automatically in Leap’s electronic underwriting algorithm to determine a risk tier used in calculating your premium. The information we obtain will be used only for underwriting purposes. We may access future reports in connection with an update, renewal, extension, cancellation, or non-renewal of your insurance coverage.

Upon request, we will provide you with the name, address, and telephone number of any consumer reporting agency that furnishes us with your report. These consumer reporting agency scores do not take into account income, race, gender, religion, marital status, national origin or geographic location.

Specific Use of Credit and Consumer Information in Lease Guaranty Surety Policy and Tenant Lease Rental Bond

Leap’s products are surety products. They are supplemental guaranties made to property owners and managers that you can meet the obligations of your lease. They have characteristics of a credit product based on your financial profile. For these reasons, additional information about your income, employment history, personal assets, and citizenship/visa status may be collected. The information we are collecting is necessary to verify information about you and to determine your eligibility and the correct premium to charge you for these products.

Your financial profile and creditworthiness are the primary factors in determining eligibility. We obtain your credit score from Experian PLC. This inquiry may affect your credit score. Experian can provide a free copy of your credit report, and if you believe that report is inaccurate, they can respond to disputed items, but Experian cannot comment on your Lease Guaranty Surety Policy or Tenant Lease Rental Bond application.

Experian PLC

No information related to race, color, religion, national origin, actual or perceived gender (including gender identity), marital status, sexual orientation, disability, age, lawful occupation, presence of children, lawful source of income (including public assistance), or any other aspect of a protected Federal, state or locally protected class is used to determine eligibility or calculation of premiums.

Other Applicable Laws

Fair Housing Act

The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability.

Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation.

Equal Credit Opportunity Act

The Equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age, because an applicant receives income from a public assistance program, or because an applicant has in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act.

State and Local Laws

State and local laws often provide broader coverage and prohibit discrimination based on additional classes not covered by Federal law.

Consent to Electronic Communications and Signatures

Under the terms of The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act of 2000, you are providing consent to electronic transactions, including providing you with insurance policy documents electronically by submission of an application and payment of premium.
