At Wisconsin Physicians Service Insurance Corporation (WPS) and The EPIC Life Insurance Company we take our customers' privacy seriously and understand that visitors to our websites need to be in control of their personally identifiable information (name, email address, postal address, etc.).
We will not gather personally identifiable information about you unless you specifically and knowingly provide this information to us. For example, health care providers and preauthorized individuals may submit authenticated requests in order to access secured areas of our website. And in these cases, the personally identifiable information is only used for authorized retrieval of the requested data, or for statistical purposes in order to analyze visitors' behavior to measure customer interest in various areas of our website.
To access confidential information on the website, the user must first authenticate themselves. This is accomplished by entering a member number/user ID and password. This user ID and password is encrypted, sent to wpsic.com, decrypted, and verified against a back end database. If everything matches, the user is permitted to access the information.
To secure the site, any sensitive information that passes between the web browser and wpsic.com is encrypted with 128 bit SSL. This encryption strength is one of the highest available today.
We will not disclose, give, sell or transfer any personally identifiable information to third parties.
It is important to note that electronic mail can be intercepted. If your communication is extremely sensitive, you may want to send it by postal mail instead.
