Utah Privacy Notice
State of Utah Privacy Notice – As Prescribed by the Utah Consumer Privacy Act (UCPA)
Effective Date: December 31, 2023
Policy Last Revised: December 31, 2023
Scope of this Privacy Notice
These Utah Resident Privacy Notice terms and conditions (“Privacy Notice”) are effective December 31, 2023, and supplement the information contained in Brown & Brown, Inc.’s governing website Privacy Statement. This Privacy Notice applies solely to consumers who are Utah residents.
The UCPA applies only to persons that conduct business in Utah or produce products or services that are targeted to Utah residents, have annual income of $25,000,000 or more, AND that, during the calendar year, control or process personal data of at least 100,000 consumers OR derive over 50 percent of gross revenue from the sale of personal data and control or process the personal data of at least 25,000 consumers.
Brown & Brown, Inc. through its operating subsidiaries (“we”) endeavor to protect the privacy and confidentiality of the personal data with which we are entrusted. This Utah Resident Privacy Notice outlines the personal data we collect or process about Utah residents in connection with the services we provide or offer specifically to you as a consumer, including through any site, application, or product that links to this Privacy Notice (the “Service”), how we use, share, and protect that personal data, and what your rights are with respect to your personal data that we gather and process.
In this Utah Resident Privacy Notice, “personal data” has the same meaning as defined in the Utah Consumer Privacy Act (“UCPA”): any information that is linked or reasonably linkable to an identified individual or identifiable individual. Personal data does not include information that has been de-identified, aggregated, or is publicly available.
Under certain circumstances, we may collect your personal data for the Service pursuant to a contract we have with a commercial client (our “Client”). In such instances, we may be acting as a “processor” and are obligated to process the personal data we collect or are provided in connection with the Service in accordance with instructions from or the contract with our Client, which is the business ultimately responsible for determining how your personal data will be handled. Accordingly, if you are using the Service in connection with your role as an employee of our Client, or by virtue of some other relationship with our Client, we encourage you to review that Client’s privacy notice to understand the full scope of how your personal data will be handled. Further, in any case where we are acting as a processor to a Client, if you (“you”) wish to exercise any rights that may be available to you under certain data privacy laws (for example, the right to access or deletion under the UCPA if you are a resident of Utah as described below), you should direct your request to our Client, who is the party responsible for receiving, assessing, and responding to your requests, as we do not have any legal obligation, and, notwithstanding anything in this Privacy Notice to the contrary, may elect not to respond to your requests. If you are not certain whether we are acting as a processor to a Client in your particular circumstance, we urge you to contact us through one of the methods described at the end of this Privacy Notice.
What Personal data Do We Collect, Share, and/or Sell, and for What Purpose?
We may also use or share de-identified information that is not reasonably likely to identify you for commercially legitimate business purposes.
We do not currently sell personal data to any third parties for monetary consideration and have not done so in the preceding 12 months. We may, however, engage in targeted advertising and/or profiling.

Your Rights as a Utah Resident
Pursuant to Utah law, some Utah residents have specific rights regarding their personal data as described below. These rights are subject to certain exceptions.
When legally required, we will respond to most requests without undue delay, within 45 days of receipt of the request, unless it is reasonably necessary for us to extend our response time.
- Right to Confirm Processing and Access to Personal Data
You have the right to request confirmation from us as to whether or not we are processing your personal data and to access such personal data. If you submit a valid request and we are able to authenticate your identity and/or authority to make the request, we will confirm for you whether or not we are processing your personal data and/or grant you access to your data.
- Right to Request Deletion of Personal Data
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal data that we collected from you and retained. If you submit a valid request and we are able to authenticate your identity and/or authority to make the request, we will delete your personal data from our records, if no exceptions or retention conditions apply.
- Right to Request Disclosure of Information
You have the right to request a copy of your personal data that you previously provided to us in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, readily usable format, thereby permitting you the ability to transmit the data without hindrance.
- Right to Opt-Out of Processing
As a Utah resident, you have the right to direct a business that processes your personal data for the purposes of targeted advertising or sale, not to process for these purposes. This right is referred to as “the right to opt-out.” If you (or your designated authorized agent) submit a valid request and we confirm your identity and authority (or your identity and the authority of your authorized agent, as appropriate) to make the request, we will cease processing your personal data for the limited purposes of targeted advertising or sale. Because we are not selling your personal data for monetary compensation, we do not provide an opt-out for these activities. Since we may engage in targeted advertising, we provide you with the option to opt-out of such processing for this purpose. To do so, select the “Right to Opt-Out of Processing” option from the menu when completing the UCPA request webform.
How to Exercise the Above Rights
To exercise your rights described above, please submit a consumer request to us by visiting our online privacy rights portal and completing the UCPA request webform.
Alternatively, you may call us at +1 (888) 914-9661 and enter the following PIN: 363 845 when prompted to do so.
The request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify and authenticate you are the person about whom we collected personal data. Such verification process will involve you confirming details of the personal data we have collected about you and will increase in scope in the event the nature of your request relates to the disclosure of sensitive data or the deletion of any personal data. In some instances, you may be required to submit proof of your identity (e.g., a driver’s license); and
- Specify the consumer rights you wish to invoke; and
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
You will not be required to create an account with us to submit a request, though we may communicate with you about your request via a pre-established account, if applicable. However, in order to safeguard the personal data in our possession, if we cannot verify your identity or authority using commercially reasonable efforts, we will be unable to comply with your request and may request additional information from you. We will only use personal data you provide when submitting a request to confirm your identity or authority, or to fulfill your request.
If we refuse to act on your request, you will be notified of the decision.
Right to Non-Discrimination
You may exercise your rights under the UCPA without discrimination. For example, unless the UCPA provides an exception, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services;
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services; or
- Provide you a different level of quality of goods or services
We do not knowingly collect online information from children under the age of 13. Our services are marketed towards adults. If we are notified that we have collected personal data, as defined by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), of a child under the age of 13, we will delete the information as expeditiously as possible.
We never sell the personal data of minors under 16 years of age and would not do so in the future without affirmative authorization of the consumer if between 13 to 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age.

In any case where we are acting as a processor to a Client, you should direct your requests to exercise your rights available under data privacy laws to our Client, who is the party responsible for receiving, assessing, and responding to your requests. As a processor, we do not have any obligation, and, notwithstanding anything in this Privacy Notice to the contrary, may elect not, to respond to your requests.
