Security

Website Security

At Allianz Plc. we understand how important the security and confidentiality of your information is.  Keeping customer information secure is a top priority for us. Accordingly, we ensure your personal information is safeguarded during transmission, processing, storage and access. 

Allianz strives to protect your information from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure and employs a variety of physical and technical measures backed by policies and procedures designed to protect our systems and your personal information.  As an example, Allianz sites offer industry standard SSL/TLS (secure socket layer & transport layer security) encryption to secure data during transmission. This enables you to transact with us online in confidence.

In instances where a personalised user experience is offered via Allianz websites we require you to authenticate securely before being authorised to carry out any tailored interactions. As a consequence a password policy, which ensures use of suitably strong passwords for users, is in place on relevant Allianz sites.

User Responsibilities

Users are reminded they are solely responsible for maintaining the security of systems or devices used to access Allianz websites and the secrecy of any associated login credentials which may be used to facilitate personalised access. This responsibility extends to security for files users may download during website interactions.

As with access to any Internet site, Allianz cannot guarantee the privacy and confidentiality of information submitted or accessed from unsecure user systems or passing over intermediate systems on the public Internet. As such, users are strongly advised to pay particular attention to any security warnings their computer, the website or their browser may offer.  You can learn more about improving your online safety and protecting your personal information by visiting www.makeitsecure.org.
