The use of personal data: what this means for
As part of an application for an insurance policy or financial service or a change thereto, we ask you for personal data and other information. We use these data for the following purposes:
- to set up and implement your insurance contract or financial service
- to manage any resulting relationships
- to conduct activities aimed at increasing our customer base
- to carry out statistical analyses
- to comply with statutory obligations
- to protect the safety and integrity of the financial sector, our organisation, employees and customers.
We make use of registers to assure the safety and integrity of the financial sector, including the prevention and detection of fraud. The various registers are: the events database, the incidents register, and the internal and external reference register. These registers are managed by the Special Affairs Department. Some of the data from the events database (namely the internal reference register) can be viewed by other Delta Lloyd group members. In the case of a fraud investigation, your data are recorded in the incidents register. If we have a justified conviction that fraud has been committed, we enter your data in the external reference register. This is the part of the incidents register that other financial institutions are able to view. You will be personally notified if Delta Lloyd enters your data in the incidents register or the external reference register.
We only process data that are required for this purpose. We ensure that every type of data processing, whether related to the implementation of an agreement or the prevention of fraud, exclusively involves the processing of those personal data that are accurate, sufficient, necessary for the purpose and not excessive. In addition, as noted, all data processing is carried out properly and carefully and in accordance with the law, the code of conduct and the addendum.
Processing of specific personal data
Certain personal data need to be processed with extra care. Examples are data about your health and about a possible criminal record. In the case of personal insurance (e.g. life insurance and health insurance), we need to process data about your health. This takes place under the responsibility of our medical adviser (physician). Data about your health are only provided to other people within the company who belong to the medical adviser's functional unit and who need the data in the course of their professional duties. The employees of this functional unit always work under the direct responsibility of the medical adviser, and observe the same duty of confidentiality as the medical adviser. If we also need information from your GP or another physician you have consulted, we will always ask your permission first. In this case, we must give you the reasons why we need this information and tell you what specific data we want to know. In addition, as part of a risk assessment, we may ask questions as to whether you have a criminal record. You are not obliged to mention criminal offences dating back more than eight years.

If you already have a relationship with our company, you can ask us to provide you with a statement about your personal data that we have processed automatically or entered into a database.

You can send this request to the Commercial Division Board of Delta Lloyd,P.O. Box1000, 1000 BAAmsterdam. You will be informed within four weeks whether we are able to fulfil your request.
