At BenefitHub, we know that you care how information about you is used and shared. When you use BenefitHub, we know that you are trusting us with your personal information and want us to tell you what information we are gathering and how we are sharing it.
We appreciate your trust and we promise to only share your personal information carefully and sensibly.
What personal information do we gather?
The information we learn from you and other customers helps us personalize and continually improve your BenefitHub experience. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you give us or enter on our Web site, such as (a) your name, address, email address, and other contact details, and (b) records of your correspondence with us, if you have contacted us. If you choose not to provide certain information, you might not be able to take advantage of features that relate to that information.
Automatic Information: Whenever you interact with us, we receive and store certain types of information. For example, like many Web sites, we use “cookies” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses BenefitHub or
advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of BenefitHub on other Web sites.
E-mail Communications: We often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from BenefitHub, to help us make e-mails more useful and interesting. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, you may opt out by adjusting your Customer Communication Preferences.
Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources, such as your employer or membership organization, and add it to our account information. We use the information provided to us for such purposes as customizing your shopping experience, finding benefits that match your profile, and improving our marketplace.
Basis for use:
Information we receive in the ways set out above will typically be used in the following ways: (a) when it is necessary to process your information so that we can fulfill a contract we have in place with you, (b) because you have given us your consent to use your personal data, or (c) when we need to process the information for our legitimate interests, to ensure our services are properly provided to you and to promote our services.
What About Cookies?

We use the following cookies:
- • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of BenefitHub. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Web site.
- • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of users of BenefitHub and help us understand when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our Web site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
- • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to BenefitHub. This enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name, and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
Does BenefitHub Share the Information It Receives?
We never sell information about our customers to anyone. We also do not share information about your individual shopping activities or preferences with your employer or membership organization. Other than registrations, logins, and clicks, we only share aggregated information about all employees or members of your organization with your employer or membership organization, and only subject to this Privacy Notice. However, if you are purchasing or participating in your company or membership organization’s specifically sponsored employee or membership benefits program through BenefitHub (e.g. voluntary benefits), then it is likely we are sharing your benefit elections and information with your employer or membership organization, as well as with any insurance carriers or other benefit providers that you have selected.
Communicating Offers: Sometimes we send offers to you if you have opted in or subscribed to receiving special offers. If you do not want to receive such offers, please opt out of these communications in your Profile.
Protection of BenefitHub: We may release account and other personal information when it is necessary in order to comply with a legal obligation we are subject to; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of BenefitHub, our users, or others. We may also exchange information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. However, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, we will ask for your consent to share information about you with third parties before we do so, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
