Privacy Notice

RSAL is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.

Your privacy is important to us and we are committed to keeping it protected. We have created this Privacy Notice which explains how we use the information we collect about you and how you can exercise your data protection rights in accordance with data protection laws.

Who are we?

In this Privacy Notice, references to “we” “us” “our” mean RSA Luxembourg S.A. a company incorporated under the laws of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, with a Dutch branch (“RSAL”) registered in the Netherlands with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce under number 73357626. We provide commercial insurance products and services. We also provide insurance services in partnership with other companies.

Who will watch over your data?

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) of RSAL, will be the guarantor within RSAL of compliance with data protection regulations. The DPO will have enough resources to carry out his / her duties and attend to our clients within the Company.

What information do we collect about you?

The personal information we hold about you will often come directly from you when you make a claim or when you visit our website. This information may include the following:

  • Your personal details (for example, your name, date of birth and gender)
  • Your contact details (for example, your postal address, phone number and email address)
  • Payment/financial details (for example, direct debit or card payments)

  • Information from your digital devices, such as IP address, where the device is located, use of websites (usually via cookies), the type of device being used, operating system and how you interact with us.

If you need to claim against an insurance policy taken out on your behalf, or if you make a claim against an insured party insured at RSAL, we will need to collect information about the incident and this may be shared with other selected companies to help process the claim. If other people are involved in the incident, we may also need to collect additional information about them which can include special categories of personal data (e.g. injury and health data). We may also need to share information about you with the representatives of other people involved in an accident with you to administer their claim, or to commence recovery action against them on your behalf.

Where do we collect information we hold about you?

Where possible, we’ll collect your personal information directly from you. However, on occasion we may collect or receive details about you from other people or companies. For example:

  • Joint policy holders
  • Insurance brokers
  • Where a company has applied for an insurance product on your behalf (e.g. employer)
  • It was supplied to us when you purchased an insurance product or service that is provided by us in partnership with other companies
  • Insurance related sources (e.g. fraud prevention databases; or sanctions lists).
  • Organisations which assist with claims handling, for example suppliers; medical professionals and hospitals; loss adjustors; or lawyers
  • Where your employer is our commercial customer or business partner
  • Publicly available sources, such as online registers
  • Third party organisations who provide information for marketing purposes

We request those third parties providing us with information to comply with data protection laws and act in a transparent manner in respect of any such disclosures.

Who will we share your personal information with?

We will keep your personal information confidential at all times and only process it in accordance with this Privacy Notice. We will share your information with our employees and contractors for the purpose of providing our service to you and for exercising our legitimate interests.

We do not disclose your information outside of RSAL except:

  • Where we need to check the information you gave to us with a third party organisation before we can service an insurance product;
  • Where we are required or permitted to do so by law or relevant regulatory authority (e.g. financial crime/sanction screening, fraud detection/prevention);
  • In the event that we may be taken over, or sell any business or assets, in which case we will disclose your personal information to the prospective buyer of such business or assets. They will only be able to use the data for the same purposes for which it was originally provided;
  • As required to enforce the contract of insurance itself;
  • Within the RSA group for administrative and research purposes;
  • As required in order to give effect to contractual arrangements we have in place with any insurance broker and/or intermediary through which you have arranged a policy including where we provide insurance services in partnership with other companies
  • With healthcare providers in the context of any relevant claim being made against a policy;
  • If we appoint a third party to process and settle claims under the policy on our behalf, in which case we will make your personal information available to them for the purposes of processing and settling such claims;
  • With our third party service/assistance providers (including hosting/storage providers, research agencies, technology suppliers etc.);
  • With our reinsurers (and brokers of reinsurers) in connection with the normal operation of our business;
  • With our claims suppliers for the purpose of providing you with claims services pursuant to the contract of insurance;
  • With databases such as fraud prevention databases for the purposes of fraud detection and prevention or sanctions lists;
  • Your advisors (such as lawyers or professional advisors), who you have given authority for us to share your personal information with or given authorisation to deal with us directly for example a power of attorney; and
  • Social media companies (in a secure format) so they can display messages to you about our products and services, or to make sure you do not get irrelevant messages (for example, we will we not show messages about products / services you already have).

Sometimes your personal information may be sent to other parties outside the European Economic Area (EEA) in connection with the purposes set out above. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice, and in doing so may rely on certain "transfer mechanisms" such as the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission. If you would like further information please contact us.

How long will we keep your information?

We will retain your personal information for as long as we have a relationship with you. Once our relationship has ended we will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to satisfy any legal, accounting or reporting obligations, or as necessary to resolve disputes. To assist with the determination of the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes we process your personal information for and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.

In addition, your personal information will be retained under one or more of the following:

  • To maintain business records for analysis, auditing or for a limited period of time, using some of your personal information to improve the products or services we provide.
  • For as long as your personal information is required to allow us to conduct fraud and/or criminal checks and investigations.

Will you be contacted for marketing purposes?

RSAL will only contact you for marketing purposes if you have previously agreed or if RSAL is permitted under applicable law. This could be via any channel we hold contact information for you. Where that’s the case:

  • We will let you know about offers and services we think you’ll like and any special offers available to you. Where appropriate these messages may be personalised using information you have previously provided us.
  • We will only contact you for marketing purposes if we collected your information directly or when authorised and instructed by a third-party acting on your behalf.
  • We may use the information which we collect about you to show you relevant advertising on third-party websites (e.g. Facebook or Google).

If you don’t want to be shown targeted online advertising messages from us, you can change the advertising setting on some third-party sites and some browsers to block our adverts.
  • In some circumstances we may share some of your information (in a secure format) with social media companies so that they can match this to information they already hold to display messages to you about our products and services.

You can ask us at any point to stop sending you marketing, and request that your personal information is not processed for the purposes of marketing.
