Online Privacy Policy

Last updated December 18, 2013

Welcome to MetLife!

GLOBAL.METLIFE.COM PRIVACY POLICY

The companies in the MetLife, Inc. family (collectively, “MetLife”) recognize the importance of protecting all information that you, our online visitor, may choose to provide to us. This policy outlines how we collect, store, and use the information you provide to us when you visit global.metlife.com.

 

Personal information is information that identifies you and can be used to contact you directly. Global.metlife.com does not collect any personal information from our visitors. Instead, the primary purpose of this website is to offer basic Company information and direct our web visitors to their local country website in local language with specific information about the products and services offered in that country. Once there, you should read that local country website’s Online Privacy Policy for more information about how it collects, uses, and shares personal information.

This Policy doesn’t apply to any other websites maintained by other companies or organizations to which we link. MetLife is, therefore, not responsible for the content or activities provided on those websites.

Finally, the terms of this Policy are subject to all applicable laws.

 

 

Yes, we collect non-personal information through technology to enhance our ability to serve you. For example, when you come to one of our websites, we collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal you used to enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), company, association, or university. Standing alone, however, your IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we also use IP addresses to study the frequency that our visitors visit various areas of our websites. We may combine this information with personal information. Finally, our websites do not respond to browser Do Not Track signals or other similar mechanisms.

Cookies and Web Beacons

Our websites also use cookies and web beacons to collect and store information.

Cookiesare pieces of information that a website sends to your computer while you are viewing the website. We use cookies for a variety of purposes. For example, when you return to one of our websites after logging in, cookies provide information to the website so that the website will remember who you are. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You can do this through your browser (e.g., Netscape or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your web experience smoother, and some of our services may not function properly.
