Data protection in general:

All personal data made accessible to Allianz Suisse is handled in accordance with the provisions of the Swiss Data Protection Act and protected against unauthorised processing, loss and destruction by means of appropriate technical and organisational measures. Your data will only be retained for as long as is required for processing and by the legally prescribed retention periods.

The data and information entrusted to Allianz Suisse will be used for the purposes that are indicated on receipt or are apparent from the circumstances. Allianz Suisse also reserves the right to use such information for its own marketing and advertising purposes within the Allianz Suisse Group.

Before conclusion and during the term of the contract, it may become necessary to make enquiries and exchange data with third parties in Switzerland and abroad for the purposes of risk assessment, credit checks, further ascertainment of facts or in the event of a claim. Where necessary, we also obtain pertinent information from third parties (in particular previous insurers concerning claims histories, credit check companies, pledgees, co-insurers and reinsurers, medical personnel, doctors, officials, hospitals, social insurers and employers in the case of group insurance). In the event of recourse to a liable third party, the data may be transferred to the liable third party or the third party’s liability insurer in order to effect the recourse claim.

Some of our services are provided by legally independent companies in Switzerland and abroad, which may be group companies of the Allianz Group or cooperation partners.
