Your privacy is critically important to us. At Automattic, we have a few fundamental principles:

We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our services.

We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.

We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what information on your website is shared publicly (or kept private), indexed by search engines, and permanently deleted.

We help protect you from overreaching government demands for your personal information.

We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.

Below is our Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles.

Howdy! We are the folks behind a variety of products and services designed to allow anyonefrom bloggers, to photographers, small business owners, and enterprisesto build and manage a website to share with the world. Our mission is to democratize publishing. We believe in powering the open Internet with code that is open source and are proud to say that the vast majority of our work is available under the GPL. Unlike most other services, because our GPL code is public, you can actually download and take a look at that code to see how it works.

This Privacy Policy applies to information that we collect about you when you use:

Our websites (including , m, vip.wordpress.com, jetpack.com, woocommerce.com, polldaddy.com, gravatar.com, intensedebate.com, vaultpress.com, and akismet.com);

Our mobile applications (including the WordPress mobile app for Android and iOS);

Our other products and services that are available on or through our websites (including WordPress.com plans, WordPress.com VIP, Jetpack, the WooCommerce Services Extension, Gravatar, the IntenseDebate comment management system, and Akismet plans); and

Other users websites that use our Services, while you are logged in to your account with us.

Throughout this Privacy Policy well refer to our website, mobile applications and other products and services collectively as Services. And if youd like to learn more about which Automattic company is the controller of information about you, take a look at the section below on Controllers and Responsible Companies.

Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of our products or services that have a separate privacy policy.

Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

Weve decided to make this Privacy Policy available under aCreative Commons Sharealikelicense. You can grab a copy of this Privacy Policy and other legal documents onGithub. Youre more than welcome to copy it, adapt it, and repurpose it for your own use. Just make sure to revise the language so that your policy reflects your actual practices. Also, if you do use the policy wed appreciate a credit and link to Automattic somewhere on your site.

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do sofor example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better.

We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Lets go over the information that we collect.

Its probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:

We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, we require individuals who sign up for a WordPress.com account to provide a username and email addressand thats it. You may provide us with more informationlike your namebut we dont require that information to create a WordPress.com account.

If you have an account with us, we collect the information that you provide for your public profile. For example, if you have a WordPress.com account, your username is part of that public profile, along with any other information you put into your public profile, such as a photo or an About Me description. Your public profile information is just thatpublicso please keep that in mind when deciding what information you would like to include.

Transaction and Billing Information:

If you buy something from usa subscription to a WordPress.com plan, a premium theme, or acustom domain, for exampleyou will provide additional personal and payment information that is required to process the transaction and your payment, such as your name, credit card information, and contact information.

If you use our ecommerce Services to sell products or services to others through your site (includingStores on WordPress.com, theWooCommerce Services extension,or other purchases on WooCommerce.com), you will have to create a WordPress.com account or connect an existing account and, for some of our ecommerce Services, provide your site URL. You may also provide us with information about your financial account to set up a payments integration, such as the email address for your Stripe or PayPal account or your bank account information.

Depending on the Services you use, you may also provide us with information about you in draft and published content (such as for your website or your Polldaddy survey). For example, if you write a blog post that includes biographic information about you, we will have that information, and so will anyone with access to the Internet if you choose to publish the post publicly. This might be obvious to youbut its not to everyone!

Depending on the Services you use, you may provide us with credentials for your website (like SSH, FTP, and SFTP username and password). For example, Jetpack and VaultPress users may provide us with these credentials in order to use our one-click restore feature if there is a problem with their site, or to allow us to troubleshoot problems on their site more quickly.

Communications With Us (Hi There!):

You may also provide us information when you respond to surveys, communicate with our Happiness Engineers about a support question, or post a question about your site in our public forums.

Information We Collect Automatically

We also collect some information automatically:

Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our Servicesfor example, when you create or make changes to your website on WordPress.com.

We collect information about your usage of our Services. For example, we collect information about the actions that site administrators and users perform on a site using our WordPress.com or Jetpack servicesin other words, who did what, when and to what thing on a site (e.g., [WordPress.com username] deleted [title of post] at [time/date]). As another example, ourWooCommerce Usage Trackertracks information like your email address, WooCommerce settings, PHP settings, and other features for your site, along with information about your online store, such as the aggregate number of orders and customers. We also collect information about what happens when you use our Services (e.g., page views, support document searches at en.support.wordpress.com, features enabled for your website, interactions with ourAdmin Barand other parts of our Services) along with information about your device (e.g., screen size, name of cellular network, and mobile device manufacturer). We use this information to, for example, provide our Services to you, as well as get insights on how people use our Services, so we can make our Services better.

We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Services from certain geographic regions. We may also collect information about your precise location via our mobile apps (when, for example, you post a photograph with location information) if you allow us to do so through your mobile device operating systems permissions.

We may access information stored on your mobile device via our mobile app. We access this stored information through your device operating systems permissions. For example, if you give us permission to access the photographs on your mobile devices camera roll, our Services may access the photos stored on your device when you upload a really amazing photograph of the sunrise to your website.

Interactions with Other Users Sites:

We collect some information about your interactions with other users sites while you are logged in to your account with us, such as your Likes and the fact that you commented on a particular post, so that we can, for example,recommend postswe think may interest you. As another example, for Intense Debate users, we collect information about the comments you make while logged in to your account, and use that information to, for example, tally up statistics about your comments (check them out in your dashboard!) and provide the information about your comments in your Intense Debate public profile.

Information from Cookies & Other Technologies:

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitors computer, and that the visitors browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Pixel tags (also called web beacons) are small blocks of code placed on websites and emails. Automattic uses cookies and other technologies like pixel tags to help us identify and track visitors, usage, and access preferences for our Services, as well as track and understand email campaign effectiveness and to deliver targeted ads. For more information about our use of cookies and other technologies for tracking, including how you can control the use of cookies, please see ourCookie Policy.

Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your WordPress.com account through another service (like Google) or if you connect your website or account to a social media service (like Twitter) through ourPublicize feature, we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.

We may also get information, such as a mailing address, from third party services about individuals who are not yet our users (but we hope will be!), which we may use, for example, for marketing and advertising purposes like postcards and other mailers advertising our services.

We use information about you as mentioned above and for the purposes listed below:

To provide our Servicesfor example, to set up and maintain your account, host your website, backup and restore your website, or charge you for any of our paid Services;

To further develop and improve our Servicesfor example by adding new features that we think our users will enjoy or will help them to create and manage their websites more efficiently;

To monitor and analyze trends and better understand how users interact with our Services, which helps us improve our Services and make them easier to use;

To measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of our advertising, and better understand user retention and attritionfor example, we may analyze how many individuals purchased a plan after receiving a marketing message or the features used by those who continue to use our Services after a certain length of time;

To monitor and prevent any problems with our Services, protect the security of our Services, detect and prevent fraudulent transactions and other illegal activities, fight spam, and protect the rights and property of Automattic and others, which may result in us declining a transaction or the use of our Services;

To communicate with you, for example through an email, about offers and promotions offered by Automattic and others we think will be of interest to you, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date on Automattic and our products; and

To personalize your experience using our Services, provide content recommendations (for example, through ourReader Post Suggestions), target our marketing messages to groups of our users (for example, those who have a particular plan with us or have been our user for a certain length of time), and serve relevant advertisements.

Legal Bases for Collecting and Using Information

A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:

(1) The use is necessary in order to fulfill our commitments to you under our Terms of Service or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer your accountfor example, in order to enable access to our website on your device or charge you for a paid plan; or

(2) The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or

(3) The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or

(4) We have a legitimate interest in using your informationfor example, to provide and update our Services, to improve our Services so that we can offer you an even better user experience, to safeguard our Services, to communicate with you, to measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of our advertising, and better understand user retention and attrition, to monitor and prevent any problems with our Services, and to personalize your experience; or

(5) You have given us your consentfor example before we place certain cookies on your device and access and analyze them later on, as described in ourCookie Policy.

We do not sell our users private personal information.

We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:

Subsidiaries, Employees, and Independent Contractors:

We may disclose information about you to our subsidiaries, our employees, and individuals who are our independent contractors that need to know the information in order to help us provide our Services or to process the information on our behalf. We require our subsidiaries, employees, and independent contractors to follow this Privacy Policy for personal information that we share with them.

We may share information about you with third party vendors who need to know information about you in order to provide their services to us, or to provide their services to you or your site. This group includes vendors that help us provide our Services to you (like payment providers that process your credit and debit card information, fraud prevention services that allow us to analyze fraudulent payment transactions, postal and email delivery services that help us stay in touch with you, customer chat and email support services that help us communicate with you, registrars, registries, and data escrow services that allow us to provide domain registration services, and your hosting provider if your site is not hosted by Automattic), those that assist us with our marketing efforts (e.g. by providing tools for identifying a specific marketing target group or improving our marketing campaigns), those that help us understand and enhance our Services (like analytics providers), and companies that make products available on our websites (such as the extensions on WooCommerce.com), who may need information about you in order to, for example, provide technical or other support services to you. We require vendors to agree to privacy commitments in order to share information with them. Other vendors are listed in our more specific policies (e.g. ourCookie Policy).

We may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request. For more information on how we respond to requests for information about WordPress.com users, please see ourLegal Guidelines.

To Protect Rights, Property, and Others:

We may disclose information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Automattic, third parties, or the public at large. For example, if we have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury, wemay disclose information related to the emergency without delay.

In connection with any merger, sale of company assets, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company, or in the unlikely event that Automattic goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would likely be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. If any of these events were to happen, this Privacy Policy would continue to apply to your information and the party receiving your information may continue to use your information, but only consistent with this Privacy Policy.

We may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction. For example, we may share your information with third parties with which you authorize us to do so, such as the social media services that you connect to your site through our Publicize feature.

Aggregated or De-Identified Information:

We may share information that has been aggregated or reasonably de-identified, so that the information could not reasonably be used to identify you. For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our Services and we may share a hashed version of your email address to facilitate customized ad campaigns on other platforms.

If you have a WordPress.com account and leave a comment on a site that uses our Services (like a site created on WordPress.com or a site running Jetpack), your IP address and the email address associated with your WordPress.com account may be shared with the administrator(s) of the site where you left the comment.

And if you send us a request (for example, via a support email or one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish that request in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

Information that you choose to make public isyou guessed itdisclosed publicly.

That means, of course, that information like your public profile, posts, other content that you make public on your website, and your Likes and comments on other websites, are all available to othersand we hope you get a lot of views!

For example, the photo that you upload to your public profile, or a default image if you havent uploaded one, is yourGloballyRecognized Avatar, or Gravatarget it? :). Your Gravatar, along with other public profile information, will display with the comments and Likes that you make on other users websites while logged in to your WordPress.com account. Your Gravatar + public profile information may also display with your comments, Likes, and other interactions on websites that use our Gravatar service, if the email address associated with your account with us is the same as the email address that you use on the other website.

We also provide a Firehose stream of public data (like posts and comments) from sites that use our Services to provide that data to Firehose subscribers, who may view and analyze the content (all subject to our Terms of Service), but do not have rights to re-publish it, publicly.

Public information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties.

Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.

We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use itwhich are described in the section above on How and Why We Use Informationand we are not legally required to continue to keep it.

For example, we keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to one of Automattics websites, such as the visitors IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic to Automattics websites and investigate issues if something goes wrong on one of our websites.

As another example, when you delete a post, page, or comment from your WordPress.com site, it stays in your Trash folder for thirty days just in case you change your mind and would like restore that contentbecause starting again from scratch is no fun, at all. After the thirty days are up, the deleted content may remain on our backups and caches until purged.

While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.

To enhance the security of your account, we encourage you to enable our advanced security settings, likeTwo Step Authentication.

You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:

Limit the Information that You Provide:

If you have an account with us, you can choose not to provide the optional account information, profile information, and transaction and billing information. Please keep in mind that if you do not provide this information, certain features of our Servicesfor example, paid, premium themesmay not be accessible.

Limit Access to Information On Your Mobile Device:

Your mobile device operating system should provide you with the ability to discontinue our ability to collect stored information or location information via our mobile apps. If you do so, you may not be able to use certain features (like adding a location to a photograph, for example).

Opt-Out of Electronic Communications:

You may opt out of receiving promotional messages from us. Just follow the instructions in those messages. If you opt out of promotional messages, we may still send you other messages, like those about your account and legal notices.

Set Your Browser to Reject Cookies:

At this time, Automattic does not respond to do not track signals across all of our Services. However, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies before using Automattics websites, with the drawback that certain features of Automattics websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

While wed be very sad to see you go, if you no longer want to use our Services 🙁 🙁 🙁 :(, you canclose your WordPress.com account. Please keep in mind that we may continue to retain your information after closing your account, as described in How Long We Keep Information abovefor example, when that information is reasonably needed to comply with (or demonstrate our compliance with) legal obligations such as law enforcement requests, or reasonably needed for our legitimate business interests.

If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the GDPR), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:

Request access to your personal data;

Generally, the controller is the Automattic company that entered into the contract with you under the Terms of Service for the the product or service you use.

Ads appearing on any of our Services may be delivered by advertising networks. Other parties may also provide analytics services via our Services. These ad networks and analytics providers may set tracking technologies (like cookies) to collect information about your use of our Services and across other websites and online services. These technologies allow these third parties to recognize your device to compile information about you or others who use your device. This information allows us and other companies to, among other things, analyze and track usage, determine the popularity of certain content, and deliver advertisements that may be more targeted to your interests. Please note this Privacy Policy only covers the collection of information by Automattic and does not cover the collection of information by any third party advertisers or analytics providers.

If youd like to use third party plugins, WooCommerce extensions that enable services provided by third parties, or other third party software, please keep in mind that when you interact with them you may provide information about yourself (or your site visitors) to those third parties. We dont own or control these third parties and they have their own rules about collection, use and sharing of information, which you should review.

We also process information about visitors to our users websites, on behalf of our users and in accordance with our user agreements. Please note that our processing of that information on behalf of our users for their websites isnt covered by this Privacy Policy. We encourage our users to post a privacy policy that accurately describes their practices on data collection, use, and sharing of personal information. If youd like, you can also read more about the data we collect on behalf of our users in ourPrivacy Notice.

Users Located in the European Economic Area (EEA)

Where required, we have put in place appropriate safeguards with our group companies, service providers, contractors, distributors and other business partners and agents to ensure that transfers of personal information outside the EEA are adequately protected. These safeguards typically comprise the EU Standard Contractual Clauses in accordance with Article 46(2) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. For more information on the appropriate safeguards in place to protect your personal information, please contact us using the details at the end of this Privacy Statement.

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure, including implementation of such security measures as may be required by applicable law.However, no information system can be 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information. Moreover, we are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to the Sites over networks that we do not control, including the Internet and wireless networks.

The safety and security of your personal information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a User ID and password to access the Sites, you are responsible for keeping those log-on credentials confidential and not revealing them to others.

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which is downloaded to your hard disk or to your browsers memory when you visit one of our Sites. Cookies are useful because they help arrange the content and layout of our Sites and allow us to recognize those computers or other devices that have been to our Sites before. Cookies do many different jobs, such as allowing our Sites to remember your preference settings and helping us to enhance the usability and performance of our Sites and your experience using them.

Our Sites also may contain electronic images known as web beacons sometimes called single-pixel gifs that allow us to count the number of users who have visited specific pages. We may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

The type of cookie or similar technology that may be used on our Sites can be put into 1 of 4 categories: Strictly Necessary, Performance, Functionality & Profile and Advertising.

These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around our Sites and use their features, particularly in connection with information searches and order placement. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet. An example of a strictly necessary cookie is a shopping basket cookie, which is used to remember the products that you wish to purchase when you add products to your shopping basket or proceed to checkout.

These cookies collect information about how you use our Sites, for example which pages you go to most often and if you get any error messages from certain pages. These cookies collect information that is used to improve how our Sites work. Without these cookies we cannot learn how our Sites are performing and make relevant improvements that could better your browsing experience. Examples of performance cookies that our Sites use include Google and Adobe Analytics (see further discussion below).

These cookies allow our Sites to store information that you provide such as your site language preferences and to store technical information useful for your interactions with our Sites. For instance, they remember your user ID and elements of your user profile. They also ensure that your experience using the Sites and our marketing efforts are relevant to you. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. These cookies will not be used to track your browsing activity on other websites.

Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices you have previously made or personalize your browsing experience. For example, we use a cookie to store your language preferences, which allows us to present you with product search results in the correct language, and we use a cookie to store your choice about the appearance of the cookie information banner that we display on our Sites. This cookie will help us remember your choice about the appearance of the cookie information banner when you subsequently visit the same site where you made your choice about the banner and any other Company sites with the same domain or the same top-level domain.

These cookies or similar technologies may be used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They may also be used to limit the times you see an advertisement as well as help to measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. These cookies may track your visits to other websites. Without these cookies or other technologies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.

We permit third-party advertising partners to use cookies and other technologies to collect information about your browsing activities over time and across different websites when you use our Sites, including products that you browse or purchase and your location. Examples of advertising cookies or similar technologies that we use include Google AdWords and Facebook Pixels.

You may be asked to consent to our use of cookies as described in this Privacy Statement by way of a cookie information banner upon your first use of our Sites. You can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies and you can withdraw your consent at any time by modifying the settings of your browser to reject or disable cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the features of the Sites or other websites that you visit.

We use industry standard web analytics to track visits to our sites. These analytics are provided by Google Analytics, Adobe Analytics, Facebook Pixels, Sitecore Analytics and Coveo (Web Analytics Providers). The information generated by the cookie about your use of our Sites (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by our Web Analytic Providers on their servers. The Web Analytics Providers will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our Sites, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The Web Analytics Providers may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on their behalf.

Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to remember you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a session cookie) or for multiple repeat visits (using a persistent cookie). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as first party cookies), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (third party cookies).

Both websites and HTML e-mails may also contain other tracking technologies such as web beacons, or pixels. These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, the web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

Your rights over your personal information

Non Personal Confidential information

XL Group Ltd, together with other members of its group, including but not limited to those listed atXL Group or we or us) are committed to compliance with data protection laws. This Privacy Notice describes how XL Group collects, uses, shares and secures your personal information and non-personal confidential information when we provide our services as an insurance and reinsurance business. It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information. Personal information is information, or a combination of pieces of information that could reasonably allow you to be identified.

As an insurance and reinsurance business, we need to obtain information about the individuals covered in an insurance policy, or individuals that are beneficiaries of, or have made claims under, an insurance policy, or individuals who are involved in an incident giving rise to an insurance claim. This is so that we can properly assess the risks associated with providing insurance or reinsuring a particular block of insurance policies and administer and manage our products and services. This privacy notice applies to any individual whose personal information we process in the course of providing the services (each adata subjectoryou).

We may be required by law to collect certain personal information about you, or as a consequence of any contractual relationship we have with you. Failure to provide this information may prevent or delay the fulfilment of these obligations. We will inform you at the time your information is collected whether certain data is compulsory and the consequences of the failure to provide such data.

1.1 Information we collect about you

The type of information we may collect and process about you will depend upon the type of insurance we are offering or underwriting. It may include any of the below (where permitted by law):

Personal details: Your name, age, gender, date of birth, photographs, marital status, nationality, height and weight, leisure activities and interests.

From the information we collect about you, we may also derive or generate further information such as risk ratings. Some of this information is generated through profiling (see the section below onDo we use personal information for profiling and automated decision making?).

1.2 Special categories of personal data

Some of the categories of information we collect are special categories of personal information (sometimes referred to as sensitive personal information). These include:

your health records (such as your medical history, genetic test results and information, prescription history, death certificate and reports on medical diagnoses, tests and treatment)

We may also collect information about criminal convictions or offences where authorised by law.

1.3 Sources of the information we collect

We also collect your personal information from a variety of sources:

From third party claims handlers who are involved in a claim or assist us in investigating or processing claims, including witnesses and external claims data collectors and verifiers

From public sources, such as public databases (where permitted by law)

From coverholders, insurance brokers or other intermediaries

From third party evidence providers

From individuals that you may be associated with (e.g. joint account holders, company employees or directors, family members, etc.)

Occasionally we may collect your personal information from a third party, in particular from authorised, regulatory, public sources such as government regulators, industry self-governing bodies and other publicly available records. This will be most common when we are complying with our legal obligations regarding money laundering and other financial crimes. If appropriate, in these circumstances we will either notify you of our sources or seek your consent to their use.

2. How we use your personal information and the basis on which we use it

We use your personal information to:

(a) to provide our services and fulfil our contractual obligations to you and other third parties

(b) to review, process and manage claims

(c) to conduct data analysis, which helps us assess risks, price our products appropriately and improve our services

(d) to help us prevent and detect fraud, money laundering, terrorism and other crimes

(e) to help develop new, and improve existing, services

(f) to operate and expand our business activities

(g) to carry out background checks, where lawful

(h) to perform administrative activities in connection with our services

(i) to exercise, defend and protect our legal rights or the rights of third parties

(j) to comply with legal obligations and to cooperate with regulatory bodies to which we are subject

(k) for research and development of new insurance products

We must have a legal basis to process your personal information. In most cases the legal basis will be one of the following:

(a) to complete necessary pre-contractual checks to ensure that we can assess your suitability for the insurance products we offer

(b) to fulfil our contractual obligations to you, for example to provide the services you request and to ensure that invoices are paid correctly. Failure to provide this information may prevent or delay the fulfilment of these contractual obligations

(c) to comply with our legal obligations, such as due diligence and reporting obligations, and responding to binding requests from regulators, law enforcement authorities or other government authorities

(d) to meet our legitimate interests, for exampleto improve our services, to ensure we price our products appropriately, to manage risk, to manage our business efficiently, to perform audits, and to maintain accurate records. When we process personal information to meet our legitimate interests, we always balance these against your fundamental rights and freedoms and put in place robust safeguards to ensure that your privacy is protected

(e) to exercise our legal rights where it is necessary to do so, for example to detect, prevent and respond to fraud claims, intellectual property infringement claims or violations of law.

If it is necessary that we process your sensitive personal information for one of the purposes listed above, we will only do so where one of the following applies:

(a) We have obtained your explicit consent

(b) We need to process your sensitive personal information to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim

(c) We need to process your sensitive personal information for reasons of substantial public interest, for example to prevent or detect unlawful acts or fraud or for an insurance purpose

(d) We are otherwise authorised by local law to process your sensitive personal information.

We may obtain your consent to collect and use certain types of personal information when we are required to do so by law (for example, in relation to our direct marketing activities, cookies and tracking technologies or when we process sensitive personal information). If we ask for your consent to process your personal information, you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using the details at the end of this Privacy Notice.

3. Your rights over your personal information

You have certain rights regarding your personal information, subject to local law. These include the following rights to:

rectify the information we hold about you

restrict our use of your personal information

object to our use of your personal information

receive your personal information in a usable electronic format and transmit it to a third party (right to data portability)

lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority.

If you would like to discuss or exercise such rights, please contact us at the details below. We encourage you to contact us to update or correct your information if it changes or if the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate. We will contact you if we need additional information from you in order to honour your requests.

The way we analyse personal information for the purposes of e.g. risk assessment or fraud prevention may involve profiling, which means that we may process your personal information using software that is able to evaluate your personal aspects and predict risks or outcomes. We may also use profiling, or otherwise employ solely automated means, to make decisions about you that relate to the basis on which we provide insurance to you. This is known as automated decision-making and is only permitted when we have a legal basis for this type of decision-making.

We may make automated decisions about you:

Where such decisions are necessary for entering into a contract. For example, we may decide not to offer insurance to you, or we may decide on the types of insurance that are suitable for you, or how much to charge you for our products based on your credit history and other financial information we have collected about you

Where such decisions are required or authorised by law, for example for fraud prevention purposes

Where you give your consent to us carrying out automated decision-making.

Subject to local legal requirements and limitations, you can contact us to request further information about automated decision-making, object to our use of automated decision-making, or request an automated decision to be reviewed by a human being.

We may share your personal information with third parties under the following circumstances:

XL group companies. We operate as a global business, so we may share your personal information with group companies who may use this information for the purposes described in this privacy notice.

Insurance companies, coverholders, intermediaries, financial institutions, retrocessionaires and business partners. We may share your personal information with insurance companies, intermediaries, financial institutions, retrocessionaires and business partners that use your personal information in connection with the provision of insurance and processing of claims. For example, we may share your personal information with other reinsurance businesses for the purposes of settling claims.

Service providers. We may share your personal information with service providers that perform services and other business operations for us, for example, IT and analytics providers, actuarial service entities, auditors and advisers.

Any law enforcement agency, court, regulator, government authority or professional body. We may share your personal information with these parties where we believe this is necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, or otherwise to protect our rights or the rights of any third party.

Asset purchasers. We may share your personal information with any third party that purchases, or to which we transfer, all or substantially all of our assets and business. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to ensure that the entity to which we transfer your personal information uses it in a manner that is consistent with this privacy notice.

Customer companies. We may share our personal information with your company or employer in certain circumstances, for example, if your company has a corporate insurance product with us and you make a claim under that product.

Because we operate as part of a global business, the recipients referred to above may be located outside the jurisdiction in which you are located (or in which we provide the services). See the section onInternational Data Transferbelow for more information.

We implement technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk to the personal information we process. These measures are aimed at ensuring the on-going integrity and confidentiality of personal information. We evaluate these measures on a regular basis to ensure the security of the processing.

We will keep your personal information for as long as we have a relationship with you, and for a period thereafter, in line with our Global Records Management Policy.

Your personal information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in a country that is not regarded as ensuring an adequate level of protection for personal information under European Union law or by the European Commission.
