Protecting your privacy
What personal information will we collect and why do we need it?
We may need to collect personal information from you so that we can provide you with the insurance services you are seeking from us.
How do we collect the personal information?
Information is primarily collected through brokers or directly from you. It might also be collected on occasion in person by investigators or by officers or service providers of ours, in writing, by telephone and by other electronic communication channels.
We may need to obtain personal information from others to ensure that we are fully informed in relation to the issues that we need to address with regard to your insurance and any claim that you may make.
Who will see or have access to your personal information?
Unless we are required to provide your personal information to others by law, by court order or to administer or investigate an application for insurance or a claim, your information will only be seen or used by persons working within the W. R. Berkley group of companies.
Security of Information
Our information systems and files are kept secured from unauthorised access and our staff and contracted agents and service providers have been informed of the importance we place on protecting your privacy and their role in helping us to do so. Information will be stored and disposed of in a secure environment, which may only be accessed by authorised personnel.
What if I want to check what personal information you hold about me?
We are happy to advise you what personal information we hold about you and share this information with you. This will be the case unless there is a relevant exception under the Privacy Act 1998 that applies.
Can I correct the information?
If you believe there are errors in our records about you, please let us know and we will be happy to investigate and correct any inaccuracies.
Apart from notifying you of our service offerings, we do not, without your consent, sell, rent, license or otherwise disclose your information to any party for the purposes of direct marketing.
