If we ever were to engage in any onward transfers of your data with third parties for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized, we would provide you with an opt-out choice to limit the use and disclosure of your personal data.

To opt-out of having your information transmitted or processed by Concord, inform your service provider or insurer to use an alternate method of data transmission, such as postal mail.
