The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below is a detailed description of how we handle your details.
Collection and processing of your data
You can use our website without having to provide personal details. If you intend to buy or use specific functions of our website, personal details will be collected.
So that you can take out or apply for insurance on our website, we require the following details regarding the insured party: first name, surname, e-mail address, residential address (postcode, town, address), as well as the first name, surname and date of birth of all insured persons. We require your e-mail address in order to establish contact quickly with you in case of queries and information requests in relation to your order and to send the insurance policy/order confirmation for online contracts. We require your date of birth in order to check the conditional requirements for concluding the selected tariff, as well as for statistical purposes.
Furthermore, in the case of a credit card payment, we require the name of the credit card holder, credit card number, credit card expiry date and the check digits on the back of your credit card.
In the case of a direct debit, we require the name and country of the bank, name of the account holder, account number and bank sort code.
Your details will always be transmitted via the Internet in an SSL-encrypted (at least 128 bit) form.
Payment is processed by our payment partner, Wirecard Central Eastern Europe GmbH (www.wirecard.at), while direct debits are forwarded to our payment partner, hobex AG (www.hobex.at), for payment. Our payment partner encrypts your credit card details with SSL (at least 128 bit) before transmitting the data.
Use and forwarding of your details
We use the details you provide us exclusively for the purposes of contract fulfilment and strictly in accordance with statutory regulations. For this purpose, if necessary, your details will be forwarded to other companies, e.g. assistance companies, postal service. These companies are only permitted to use your data for order processing and not for other purposes and are contractually obligated toward us to comply with statutory data protection regulations.
However, in the case of a legal requirement, an official order or official investigation proceedings, we shall be legally required to provide the relevant data to the appropriate authority.
