Privacy

We respect a person’s privacy. We cannot operate our business without processing certain personal data. We therefore consider it important that the processing of your personal data takes place in a manner which is in accordance with the existing guarantees for the protection of your privacy. We are Anker Insurance Company n.v., the processor responsible. That is partly the reason that the Dutch Association of Insurers has drawn up a code of conduct for the processing of personal data. That code of conduct is a result of the existing statutory regulations for the protection of personal data. We comply with this code of conduct in all our activities. Here you will find an explanation of what this means for you.

Your privacy
Upon taking out an insurance at Anker, we will ask you for a number of personal data. We consider it important that the processing of your personal data takes place in a manner which is in accordance with the existing guarantees for the protection of your privacy. We therefore will exercise due care when processing your personal data and comply with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other privacy regulations. In addition, a code of conduct has been drawn up by banks and insurers for the compliance with privacy regulations: the ‘Code of Conduct for the Processing of Personal Data by Financial Institutions’. You can consult this code of conduct on www.verzekeraars.nl (at ‘Publications’, ‘Downloads’, ‘Code of Conduct’).

For what purpose do we process your personal data?
We process your personal data for concluding and the execution of the insurance contracts. This is the legal basis for processing your personal data. And we process your personal data for statistical analysis and in order to be able to comply with a number of statutory obligations. We will, of course, only process those data necessary for that purpose. In other words: we ensure that for each kind of processing of personal data only those personal data will be processed which are accurate, sufficient, relevant to the case and not excessive. We do not store your data for longer than legally permitted. It may be necessary to provide your details to persons or organizations outside our company for the performance of your insurance contract.

Your rights
You are entitled to the correct processing of your personal data. In order to guarantee this right, we declare in this statement what we do with your personal data. You can contact us if you want to have access to the data we process about you and if these data are not correct, you can rectify the data. If you specifically consent to the processing of your data, you can withdraw that permission and we will delete your personal data. You can also ask for your data to be transferred to a different party that you choose; the so-called right to data portability.
You may ask us which data we process automatically or which data are incorporated in a file. We may charge a fee for providing these data. Within four weeks of your request we will inform you whether we are able to comply with your request. You can send your request to: Anker Insurance Company n.v., attn. the board, Postbus 8002, 9702 KA Groningen.
