For what purpose and on what legal basis are your personal data processed?
What applies to all categories of personal data?
We process your personal data in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act, the Act on Insurance Contracts and all other applicable laws.
When you apply for insurance cover, we require the details you provide in order to conclude the contract and assess the risk which we are to assume. If the contract is concluded, we process these personal data in order to administer the insurance relationship, e.g. to issue invoices. For instance, we require the details of losses to assess whether an insured event has occurred and establish the size of the loss.
Without processing your personal data, the conclusion and implementation of the insurance contract are impossible.
The legal basis on which we process personal data for pre-contractual and contractual purposes is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.
We also process your personal data to pursue our legitimate interests or those of third parties (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). This may be particularly necessary in order to:
- ensure IT security and IT operation,
- advertise our own insurance products and conduct market research and opinion polls,
- prevent and clarify criminal offences, in which case we use data analyses to identify evidence of possible insurance fraud.
Furthermore, we use your personal data to perform legal obligations, e.g. supervisory duties and corporate and fiscal retention duties. The legal basis for data processing in this case are the appropriate legal provisions in connection with Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR.
If we intend to process your personal data for a purpose not stated above, we shall notify you upfront in compliance with the legal regulations.
What applies to special categories of personal data, especially data concerning health?
Processing special categories of personal data, which include data concerning health, is subject to special protection. As a rule, processing is only permissible if you have given consent to the processing or one of the possibilities of processing provided under the law exists (Article 9 (2) GDPR).
Processing your special categories of personal data
In many cases, we require special categories of personal data in order to investigate entitlement to benefits. These include data concerning health. By providing us with such data in a specific insurance event, coupled with the request to investigate and assess the loss, you give us you express consent to process the data concerning health required to process the insurance claim. You will be informed about this again on the claims form.
Consent may be revoked at any time, effective for the future. Please note. however, that in such a case it may be impossible to verify our duty to provide benefits under the insurance claim. If the investigation of the insurance claim has already been completed, statutory duties of data retention may prohibit the erasure of the data.
Access to data concerning health by third parties to verify a duty to provide benefits
To verify a duty to provide benefits, we may need to check the details concerning your health which you provided in support of a claim or which emanate from the documentation (e.g. invoices, prescriptions, reports) or doctors’ or other medical practitioners’ reports which we received.
For this we require your consent, including a discharge from the duty of confidentiality for us and for all other entities who are under this duty but who nevertheless are obliged to give information to verify a duty to provide benefit.
In each case we shall tell from whom or what institution we require the information and for what purpose. You may then decide whether to allow us to collect and use your data concerning health, discharge the above persons and institutions and their employees from their duty of confidentiality, and allow us to convey your data concerning health or submit the required documents yourself.
