GDPR in Allianz
by Peter Kilcullen | 5 min read May 18th, 2018
Here at Allianz Ireland we take data privacy very seriously. So we see the introduction of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as an opportunity for us to continue our excellence with data privacy and have been preparing for its introduction over the past two years. We know a lot has been written about GDPR and we have prepared the following frequently asked questions to help You our customer to better understand what GDPR will mean for You, and to make You aware of our obligations to You when the new legislation comes into effect on May 25th, 2018.
GDPR enhances your rights as a data subject, and imposes additional ‘transparency and accountability obligations’ on organisations that process your personal data. This means that such organisations are subject to stricter rules and face heavy consequences if they fail in their obligations.
It also means increased security for your data as the GDPR provisions hold organisations to a much higher standard than before, which in return, obliges companies and organisations to strengthen security systems and to be more vigilant on how your personal data is protected.
We use your personal information for a number of activities, including:
- Providing a quotation
- Providing a quotationUnderwriting, insuring and pricing a policy
