The protection of the private sphere and of your personal data are important to us. Because we do not want to collect any personal data relating to you without your knowledge and express consent, we would like to describe below what information we would record and what purposes we would use it for.
What information do we record and what purposes do we use it for?
Whenever you access this website, certain information required for data-security purposes (for example, your IP address, the date and time) is automatically saved on our server for a period of 30 days. These data are used exclusively for security purposes (for example, to identify and trace any persons gaining or attempting to gain unauthorised access to our web server).
Munich Re will treat with strictest confidence any personal details sent when you access our homepage in accordance with the ruling provisions governing data protection at the Company’s head office. If you send us an e-mail or complete and submit online forms on our website, we will use any personal data you provide (such as your name and e-mail address) only to correspond with you, i.e. to send you the documents or information you requested, or for the other purpose(s) stipulated on the individual form. Your personal data will not be made available to third parties.
If you use our internet services, you are always free to decide whether to accept these cookies or to deactivate them in your browser settings. However, our website does include a few areas or features (such as online job applications, contact forms and the Shareholders Portal) that absolutely require a secure connection. In order to establish such a connection, you must enable or allow cookies in your browser settings. Areas of our website that are reserved for users with special access (such as the Shareholder Portal) and record additional personal data for technical and/or legal reasons, display in each case a special notice to inform visitors of this fact.
We take suitably up-to-date technical and organisational security measures to protect data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, or destruction, and against access by unauthorised persons.
We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect any information you enter in dialogue forms on our web pages. SSL encryption protects the data you send us against unauthorised third-party access. For your own security, please always use these dialogue forms. If you send us unencrypted data in a standard, unprotected e-mail, it is possible that unauthorised persons may gain knowledge of or modify your data while it is being transferred through the internet.
Do you have any other questions?
If you have any further questions relating to data protection in connection with Munich Re’s website or regarding the processing of your personal data, please contact Munich Re’s Data Protection Officer at the following address:
