Our Philosophy

 

We are ATG Risk Solutions, innovators of the Telematics Clearinghouse. We are the leading provider of connected vehicle data and proprietary vehicle safety scoring resources for underwriting and claims for the property and casualty (P&C) insurance industry. ATG Risk Solution data management techniques rigorously adhere to the highest standards regarding the protection of personally identifiable information (PII) following these principles:

 

 

Accepted

Policyholders and drivers have a right to decide with whom to share their data and for what purpose. This includes accepting ongoing monitoring of vehicle systems, collisions, repairs and data of the vehicle owner’s choice.

Transparent

Policyholders and drivers have a right to clearly understand what information is being collected from their vehicle, how it is being used and steps to improve their driving scores

Guarded

Policyholders and drivers have a right to expect that claims adjusters, agents/brokers and the partner service providers will use reasonable measures to protect vehicle data systems and services against unauthorized access and misuse.
